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.

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
