Sad Foreclosures

The headlines on The Washington Post yesterday, was about our country being The Foreclosure Nation. As many of my fellow citizens look about them in a bewildered state of confusion and hurt, I say, remember that this did not happen on this President’s watch. It began years ago, in what I believe was a conspiracy theory to rob millions of hard-working Americans from their dream. The dream of owning our homes, investing in them, having the properties be our savings account (for many of us it was practically all we had), and to be secure in the knowledge that property values would keep going up, up, up. It is precisely what we were sold into thinking. Instead of seeing us citizens, the mortgage and banking industry replaced our faces with that of a beautiful array of different colored lollipops. “SUCKERS!” is how they thought of us. There was even a program installed complete with lure-us-in commercials, to refinance for more than our properties were worth, to get yet another appraisal (which I am now thinking were blown way out of proportion during this scheme), and to take that vacation, remodel the kitchen, combine our debts, etc.. So sad.

I love the USA and I hope that the government gets to the bottom of what really happened statewide and brings those guilty to justice. Our citizens should not be treated this way. Bush and Cheney need to answer a lot of questions about their eight years in office and how everything brought about this maelstrom and chaos.

    I hope everyone remembers when this all started when they vote. I am very worried about what is going to happen on election day.

    Thanks Jessi. I already checked you out! 🙂

    Little Daisy, We must pray very hard that the people will vote the right way for our citizens, not to be dissonant voices being lead by people who only wish to tear down. Keep the faith Daisy! 🙂

    I agree. Unfortunately the whole mess just underscores the importance of not trusting anyone & constantly looking out for #1. We have to take care of ourselves because no one else is going to do it. <:(

    I wish more people thought like that. I’m not even in the US, so I’m not gonna be able to make a difference when it’s time for the election, but My fiancé is from Iowa, which means that I keep a close eye on the situation over there. I guess Most of the world does anyway though, just because it’s america, but that means that it’s even more important that people realise what’s been going on.

    @Sleepless, Perhaps it’s because we might need witches or wizards to get us out of this mess. But rather than everyone looking out for Number One, we need to be helping each other, because the gov’t is certainly not going to do it, no matter who is in office. Our gov’t, which is supposed to have a system of checks and balances, needs to be fixed, because if it’s not broken, it’s the nearest thing to it! The Supremes GAVE the next-to-last election to Bush, who immediately lied us into a series of wars that are depleting our nation’s resources, and the Republicans have flatly stated that they intend to do no work for the last three months of the year. We need to fire them all and start over! The mortgage mess is just one of many that have been created to keep the middle class broke and frightened.

    It is so true “sleeping Kitten” Americans SLEPT through all of this…the foreclosers and stuff happened because “successful people” KNEW what to do to SELL people HOMES that later would hurt them. The sleeping GIANT (US) we are awake now aren’t we?! I love your blog, keep up the great work. Your FAN for life, Jackie

    Well I hope we stay alert and since some lessons are learned the hard way (most of mine), we will be smarter than ever. Thanks!
