More Laws are not gonna change much. If a person has Ethics & Morals there are already enough laws, for those that don't have Ethics & Morals more laws just make it tuffer for those of us that do. We need the LAWMAKERKERS to ENFORCE & USE the LAWS we have. While we have Judges that tell a TERRIOIST that he should take a week before sayin he's GUILTY Ladies & Gentlemen we have BIGGER problems than a few Appraisers over inflating an Appraisal. Companies can say hey we are bankrupt but have no worry we will continue business as before. I guess more power to that appraiser that for so little money will take such a risk so a POOR family can get into a house that MAYBE they will be able to afford. Myself I'm gonna stay with the Ethics, Morals & do Appraisals within the guidelines available. Those of U that want to PLEASE all parties involved BEST OF LUCK to U. U'll make 3 - 4 times the money I will & PROBABLLY never get caught, Just that IN YOUR OWN MIND you'll know if U did it LEGAL or ILLEGAL.

You can be morally correct and illegal. Conversely, you can be legal, but morally bankrupt. As any attorney will tell you, it doesn't mattter if you are morally correct, it's whether the posterior portion of your body is in a crack legally. I know that from a moral point of view this is not the way it should be but that's the way it is. Ask people whether they TRUST each other. You will find that while they may have friends, they almost to a person don't trust other people. In the last 40 years we have removed morals from school, business, government, and in some cases, church and home. If the bastions of our country, especially home, no longer teach true morality, not relative morality, then morality will continue to be an item more talked about than lived.
