<<<"Occupiers " in California, Georgia, Ohio and elsewhere have had some success temporarily blocking foreclosures or re-taking seized homes. On occasion, they've even gotten help from local law enforcement authorities, such as the sheriff's deputies and movers who last month refused to kick a 103-year-old Atlanta woman and her daughter out of their home.>>>

This was one of the most disgusting stories regarding banks that I've ever heard and epitomizes the lack of humanity banks have towards the American people. I'm not saying everyone should get a free ride, but banks are no longer looking at their foreclosures on a case by case basis. They are just kicking people out left and right.

If I were James Dimon, CEO of Chase Bank, I would be ashamed of my company and myself. Mr. Dimon makes 11.3 million dollars a year, while kicking this 103 year old woman out of the home she's lived in for more than 50 years because a relative took out a lousy 17,000 second mortgage on the house and then didn't pay it.

What is 17,000 dollars to Mr. Dimon? Hell, he could pay that off himself and never even miss it. He could demonstrate that Chase Bank has compassion. The bank said it is working to make a way that the family can stay in their house.

You've got to be kidding me. Working on a way? These companies make me sick. What a shameful place we've come to in this country.

..... There are far too many people who do not understand that if they sign a contract then they must OBEY whatever they have signed. Or else!
..... Foreclosures are the result of users of buildings not OBEYING whatever they have signed.
..... Compare with bank robbers and shoplifters (how heavy is a shop?) who also want something for nothing.

..... Jobs will usually only be created by the private sector if the additional costs of additional employees will at least be covered completely by the additional buyers of whatever is available for buying. Yes, "buy, buy, buy"!
..... And most people don't want to pay additional taxes immediately for the government sector to be able to hire and pay a lot of unemployed people to work for governments on a temporary basis.
..... Foreclosures are the result of people not paying on or before time every time whatever their signed contract says they must pay if they want to continue living in their banks' etc. homes.
