A woman dials 911 from behind her locked bathroom door because someone is kicking down her door and entering her home. Later she discovers that it was someone hired by the bank in order come in and change her locks in order to foreclose on her house. The problem–the house has not been foreclosed on. According the here attorney things like this have been happening all over the U.S. People are being hired to break in and intimidate people who are a few months behind on their rent or who have made a bargain to pay a reduced payment on their mortgages because of the bad economy. I am beginning to wonder what the problem is with this country.
Democrat, Republican, Liberal, Conservative–these are all just labels. We watch them arguing and fighting in public only to find that the legislation that hurts us, We the People, the most, continually get passed and leadership in both parties continue to get big donations from corporate dollars and lobbyists.
We are at a time period in this country where we are being forced to come together and work together for the benefit of everyone. The arguing and splintering between races, classes, genders, republican and democrat and all the other things are no longer helpful. We are all fighting over a piece of drift wood or a lifeboat while a very small percentage of the people are sailing away on The Queen Mary. I wonder what you descendants will think when they look back at us and our time in history. Do you think they’ll be generous in their opinions of a nation that has squandered almost every possible resource because they couldn’t get passed all of the isms and work together? I hope so, because i wouldn’t.
