    There's the question of practicality. If an ex-con can't find a job, he's more likely to return to crime. If an ex-con can't find a place to live (except for the occasional apartment that doesn't check, where other ex-cons also live), he's more likely to return to crime. So if we, as a society, want to prevent recidivism then we would do well to help the ex-cons turn their lives around.

    Don't like that? Don't do it in the first place. Stupidity is not an excuse.
    Of course it is. Some people just do stupid things. I bet that most of us have done something stupid in our lives, whether legal or illegal. Some of us were lucky and suffered no consequences for our actions, whereas others were not. But there is no need to go on punishing someone forever. Once their sentence is over, the state has effectively certified that they are ready to return to society. What is the point of ostracizing them even more? What does it accomplish?

    I can't. This is important.

    Thats not hard. Just pay everything up front and in cash. They can't check on that stuff. I should know...before I had kids I had no credit rating.

    Couldn't get a loan to save my life...much less buy a car or anything else that required a credit check.

    Like you said, just pay everything up front and in cash.

    When it comes to a home, go the manual underwriting rout.
