Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
a lot of that promise/threat of armageddon is predicated on the primacy of the rule of law and the legal processing of title.

But I can't help thinking that the pols are just as aware of the abyss yawning below and are gonna force a fix through that will save the system, however much they tear a hole in the Constitution or the very concept of the rule of law. I can just imagine the form of the justifications;-

it's the American way that if you fall behind in your payments you lose your home,

never mind you were sold a pup by fraudsters who couldn't even be bothered to do the paperwork to prove you owe them a brass farthing, it's buyer beware.

you're poor, you're weak and America is only for the strong. Survival of the fittest is what makes America great and the weak fall by the wayside.

I can go only like that for ages. the system has been rigged for years, it's time for it to come out of the shadows

keep to the Fen Causeway
