How the banks got us coming and going | SocialistWorker.org

NOW THAT the same predators who pushed people into self-destructing mortgages have been caught carrying out fraudulent foreclosures, will hard-pressed homeowners finally get permanent relief?

If they organize and fight back, yes. But the banks and their political front-men and -women will do anything they can to prevent that.

The Democrats are both squirming over their role in abetting the banks' foreclosure factories and sensing a political opportunity. Thus, President Barack Obama has refused to sign what had been stealth legislation designed to speed up the "robo-signing" of foreclosure documents by forcing states to accept all such documents as valid, even if they originated in a state where this sort of dubious paperwork is standard.



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

A resounding NO!

All questions should be that easy.

Record. Store. Leave. Don't take it personally. A lifetime passes quickly.
