Taxpayer, I don't totally agree with everything you have posted. I, well did own land and I never had the threat of it being taken from me. Land and your home can be taken if the taxes are paid. I don't like paying property taxes; however, those taxes are used to help fund a multitude of things you might need one day, i.e. local firefighters, police dept, roads, local libraries, parks etc. What I don't like is how my property tax would go up and for the past 3-4 years, the sell of real estate decreased about 30%.
It's not against the law to stand on the street corner and peacefully picket, hand out flyers or stand there and tell everyone that passes by your opinion about today's politics and how it makes you mad as hell, just as long as you don't harass others or you find one that doesn't agree with you and you guys decide to throw down on main street.
I was reading from others' post, but personally I've never been able to read any material I wish to or buy any reading or viewing material I want to. I've never been told by the government what to do in my home or on my property. I don't know where you live, but I don't care enough what my neighbors are doing in view or behind closed doors to call the police. Their time is better spent trying to get real criminals off the street and not someone reading "Catcher in the Rye".
I will agree with you on the fact we are making more Americans dependent daily on government and that needs to stop. We need to take pork in all these laws being passed to educate, and mandate these people get up off their butts and make their way the same as you and I. A little hard work never killed anyone, but the cycle of government dependency to live has to stop.
I've never been told I cannot worship freely. I've been ridiculed on here by posters, but until the doors at locked at my local church, I'll continue to worship when and where I want and if my religious freedom is infringed upon, I know what I believe in my heart and my mind and that can't be taken away.
Public schools are necessary. I chose to send my child to private school where I paid tuition there and still paid my taxes that provided monies for public education. You get what you pay for and in N.C. you certainly can tell it must be a small bit as far behind as our children are behind other states in public schools. Home schooling is a good alternative but must be taken seriously by parents.
Well, that about covers it.
I do not live in a vacumn and you should not either.

TSF, I understand your point, but none of these people actually had their homes foreclosed on, with the exception of this post:

John Suayan, Southeast Texas Record
Claiming its property in Galveston was wrongly foreclosed, American Furnishing Inc. has filed suit against Bank of America N.A. and BAC Home Loans Servicing LP.
The plaintiff argues that Bank of America had no lien on the property in question and the defendants covertly planned [...]

I will not take away from the money, time, and worry these people suffered; however, we all have to stand up to lending institutions if we know we're right and fight it tooth and nail.

One time a few years ago right as I was walking in the door from work my phone was ringing. When I answered a man identified himself as agent BR549 from the IRS and before I could get a word in said: "Mrs. Bacon you owe the IRS $44.00 and because of nonpayment we can take your house." You talk about making me mad, that DID. I told him a little correspondence regarding this via the mail might have been a little useful nugget of information and he said they had mailed me numerous bills, later on found out all to the wrong address. Well, anyway I told him if he wanted my house to come get it and I'd leave the keys on the kitchen island. I told him that he didn't scare me by threatening to take my house and and BTW, he could take care of my dad and brother while he was at it. I went on to tell him, that I worked for the government and knew how to screw the system with the best of those that don't work and make their way and it wouldn't bother me a bit to walk to the mailbox from my section 8 housing to get my food stamps, Medicaid card and free bus passes for the month. I told him, he'd be doing me a favor to take my house as I could use some time off work from my government job. You talk about backpedaling, this guy actually said, "Well maybe we got off on the wrong foot" and I told him there wasn't any "we" that got off on the wrong foot unless he had a mouse in his pocket because he was the one throwing around threats. All was good after that and I paid my $44.00 dollars after receiving a proper bill with the reason why I owed this amount. Gotta take a stand sometimes.

Should have been I've never been unable to read whatever I wanted. Taxpayer, many times I agree with your posts; however, sometimes I don't quite understand exactly what you want. I'm not being ugly, so could you please just kind of list it out? If I live in a vacuum, it's a happy one. Please tell me your expectations of how our country should operate. Again, I'm not being a smarty pants, I would like to know.

The point is that illegal forclosures have always been illegal. The banks just realized that they can take people's property usually with little resistance because the average hand to mouth homeowner has no money to spend on attorneys to stop the illegal forclosures. With no enforcement of regulations, there are esentially no regulations. What is happening is so disturbing that many people deny that it is even happening although it is a reality to millions of homeowners. The 18 billion + dollars that the banks have agreed to pay back is only a fraction of what they have stolen.

TSF, I'm not saying it's a lie, but how do you foreclose on a home without a mortgage. Did the homeowners not have the deed to their home to present or what? We've all had incidents where there's miscommunication about a payment, but how were homes foreclosed on when payments were current? Foreclosure takes at least three months of missed payments before it's considered to be in default. Did banks not alert these homeowners that somehow their payments had not been credited towards their mortgage and did the homeowners not have proof they had made payments? I know there were "waiting lines" to file for foreclosure, which actually benefited the homeowner if he was short on cash, but didn't know about foreclosing on homes paid in pull.

Waco, how many times have I told you that I didn't like the way people spoke to Taxpayer on here and that although I didn't quite understand everything he said, that I tried and sometimes after a few reads I did understand and sometimes I didn't? Thanks for taking up for me, but Taxpayer's issues are larger than I and I really didn't take it as an insult. It's just his opinion.

Even though many years have passed, I think, but am not completely sure, it was local 182 of IUE CIO. Don't remember the card either. I do remember that my pay was significantly higher than that of non union workers in the same job in the same area. My perception then was that the company and union were working together for the mutual benefit of both. The union would not tolerate slackers but at the same time they would stand up for workers treated unfairly by the company. There was only one brief strike during my tenure there.
After I started my own business, my workers didn't want or need a union because they trusted me and with few exceptions , I trusted them. Loyalty goes two ways. When owners/managers do not realize that, that is when the workers need a union.

Taxpayer would not like it if I treated him any differently than anyone else.At least I don't think he would.His posts have been well written, concise and to the point.PLUS, he just went on a cruise, and i'm still pissed about that.

Bacon.That was the most horrible thing I've ever seen.I can't believe people actually got up on a stage in front of other people and did that.I actually blocked it out of my memory.Then, I just had to laugh! They were so innocent! Then, all the memories came back! Perry Mason, The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, Playhouse 90, Lassie, Clutch Cargo, Our Show of Shows, Paladin, The Real MCcoys.....I can still hear the theme music from Perry Mason....

Bacon it HAS crossed my mind that maybe, just maybe, Taxpayer is uhhh...right.It would not be beyond the realm of possibility you know.People in England called Churchill an alarmist for years, then the Nazis attacked EUROPE.Many Germans warned their country about the deadly danger presented by the Fascists, to no avail.These people were either killed by Hitler, or forced to flee.Traditionally, people who warn of the dangers of their own government are considered to be"eccentric".Sooo.. .who knows? As each day passes, I see less and less freedom in this country, more and more laws, more regulations, and fewer people willing to think outside the accepted norms.If indeed Taxpayer turns out to be an expert prognosticator, then that would make the rest of us....a gang of idiots.

Germany? One thing about Gail. She must have rat farms all over the world which, of course, would make her an international rat breeder.

Interesting reading. I knew about the one, but never knew how it turned out. While unfortunate for those few, several million Americans were able to pay their mortgages on time, so, win some loose some. Not smart enough to know what you are getting yourself into? Then stupid should hurt.

Very very badly at times.

But I am still pointing my finger at the democrats. They didn't have to sign the deregulation bill into law in 96 just like Nobama didn't have to order the stimulus plans.

Manfreid, if you were able to get The Military Channel that we have here stateside, they show many atrocities committed by Hitler such as killing and torturing the Jews or just about anyone they didn't agree with, far more graphic than this. I think everyone should watch these so we'll know what we do and don't want in a leader in any country in power. It was a very bad time during Hitler's rule and we all should be mindful that we never allow someone such as Hitler to commit such atrocities. That crazy guy over Syria is just about as bad. Thanks for reminding us all of what we don't want. If you didn't like the Lawrence Welk Show, maybe you would like an old tv show called Hogan's Heroes.
