I was in the mortgage business for about 40 years and nothing they have come up with has surprised me at all. Recently I talked to a friend in the mortgage business who said "are you surprised there are not more foreclosures for sale. The reason is that the banks are holding back their foreclosures so as not to cause tremendous drops in prices. So my question is, are they eventually going to have to let them out on the public and what do you think will happen. I tried to find a foreclosed home and saw the NOD but then I lost it and it is still in limbo?? This is another black eye for the banks.

I called them banksters back in the 80's and 90's when I was suing them. I'd find a ederal or state law settle a lawsuit and watch them go to their paid representatives in Congress and get themselves exempted from the law.

When good people do nothing, bad thinks will happen....Ben Franklin

otherwise, the voters are not paying attention, there is not enough Americans voting, are they are blindly voting for the same corrupt politicians over and over again.

Yes. That's because the corporately owned media has been dumbing them down or taking the wind out of their sails. Change is only "hopeless" when one BELIEVES it is.

This is not related, but can anyone tell me the name of the Air BnB Thom went to last week? I missed him talking about it on MOnday, until the very end. Sounded like he loved it, and great food! Thanks, Julia - Juliachase@comcast.net

The America I Knew Has Almost Disappeared

Like an alcoholic family that won't discuss alcoholism (and proving Don Quixote's warning to never mention rope in the home of a man who's been hanged), far too many Americans are unwilling to acknowledge or even discuss the ongoing collapse of democracy in the United States.

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
