Good. I hate Bank of America. They are a very pro-illegal alien bank. The nice thing about most of Europe is they do not elect Muslims to run their country.

Blame idiots in America who watch TV for Obama.

The UK will be over run by Muslims in the not too distant future.

Gee, you know—you’re much too smart for us here at Free Republic. I’m certain they’d welcome all your hate for us at Democratic Underground. There, they don’t care at all about unsubstantiated or well-informed opinion. I believe you would fit in very well.

Do european lynch mobs work 35 hour weeks, get 8 weeks of paid vacation and retire at age 60?

If so maybe BOA can escape their wrath

I think bank stocks will suffer as everyone tries to hand off the toxic mortgage debt. Wall Street screwed the system big time with its whiz bang collateralized products. The piper is playing and the proverbial (non-Reverend Wright) chickens are coming home to roost. Cockledoodledooooooo.....

Sure, BOA should take NO responsibility at all for making ARMS available for those who should never have been allowed one in the first place.

What happened to requiring 20% down?

Cuts both ways, you know?

If you have access to TV at work you may be interested in today's Dylan Ratigan show at 4:00 PM EST.

He's been bashing Republicans and Democrats alike over Foreclosuregate.

In all reality the parties may say different things...but neither party means what they say.

This particular topic seems politically radioactive. The silence is deafening.

BoA underwrote - I'll repeat that - underwrote mortgage-backed securities which are just complete garbage. Not just "not worth a lot" but "worth practically nothing" thanks to the destruction of wet signature notes.

Plus every one of those securities can be returned to BoA, because there's a buyback clause in the case of fraud. Not owning the wet signature note and then perjuring yourselves in the creation of no-note affadavits are classic acts of fraud.

BoA is on the hook, and they're not the only banks in dire trouble here.

“Cuts both ways, you know?”

No it doesn't cut both ways, just check the threads here on FR and you will find that laws are only for ‘dead beats’ not for banks. What ever it takes to make the ‘dead beats’ pay even fraud, forgery and perjury is fine. The rule of law is only for the ‘little people’ not banks.

The fact that the banks have maneuvered the whole thing so that they could make money on the upside in fees and the mulitple selling of the same mortgages to investors and then having the government make them whole when the scheme cashs on the downside is just business and usual.

“BoA is on the hook, and they’re not the only banks in dire trouble here.”

BoA will just deflect this to the ‘dead beats’ and then to the American Tax Payers and continue doing business as usual. Any way BoA has done nothing wrong that a little clearing up of the paperwork won’t fix. Any wrong doing on their part was is purely technical.

I was just going to state that if they take away my mortgage interest deduction, I’m walking out on my mortgage, but then I remembered I posted it to you on another thread. But BofA is supposedly my mortgage holder now, since the Countrywide debacle, and they better not mess wif me too much either. I’m not getting into a situation where the whole rest of the country is “doin’ da default” and only a few of us are left holding the bag.

Actually, I might, because I like my house, and I like being a homeowner, and I still consider it something of a privilege and an honor.

I accidentally looked at some Black In America sob story on CNN last night about debt in the black community. At one point when some Reverend was talking about historical economic disparities, he started saying that white folks have wealth because of home equity built up and handed down through families over the years. He was actually talking about how white folks have been getting home loans for zero down going back to the 50’s.

I just laughed/cried turned it back to football.

I know - I shudder to think of some who help elect our leaders.

I went to a restaurant the other day and a woman was at the counter with a menu to place an order for take-out, trying to look sophisticated and “smart”. She asked, “How many onion rings do y’all give?”. The clerk said, “Well, it depends - we don’t really count them.” and she replied, “Y’all gives more frenchfries on an order, don’t y’all?” and the clerk said, “Yeah, they don’t take up as much room in the (paper) tray”.

I’m saying to myself, “My God - that dumbass will vote in November.” Then the most absurd part of the conversation left the clerk to wince and me to burst outloud in an involuntary chuckle!

She asked the clerk, still looking ‘smart’, “How many hushpuppies do y’all give in a half dozen?”
The stunned clerk looked at me then back at the woman and said, “We give six hushpuppies in a half dozen and twelve in a dozen.”

With folk like that customer deciding our fate, America has some dark days ahead unless the gene pool purges itself!

WHen have I said anything pro-gay? So you lie like the Democrats when you are incapable of providing an intelligent arguement?

TV is total s**t - ALL of It. It makes Americans serfs. TV and Hollwyood are 100% pro-islam, pro-illegal, anti-christian, anti-america.

Our troops are being killed like penny arcade bears because the left/elits/islamics control TV and the masses. Fox is only marginally better. Keep watching serf.
