Doesn't de judge sound like an old-time Dixie politician? Shades of Huey Long!

Well Mimi, a lot of us really do talk like that down here. But maybe Huey Long was more honest, or at least more reputable. I wonder if the lawyer who refused to allow the CNN cameras in with his client was concerned that she would sue him later.

Goes to show just how much the law isn’t your friend. A clear case of the courts enabling the wealthy bankers while stomping the poor into the dirt. When you think of how much this was all a scam run by the banks who had their loan officers misleading people into thinking they could buy a house it is equally clear that there is nothing remotely resembling justice here. The rich continue to steal from the poor. Also, people have been saying that when the banks dump the rest of their junk houses on the market prices will drop even further so this is perhaps a prelude to that event. Then you have Tort Reform, where the large corporations cover their asses by literally keeping the general public from having access to their own court system thereby preventing any lawsuits before they occur. A sweet deal.

It’s part of the tightening noose. Besides flooding the market with worthless homes you can bet Social Security and Medicare as well as Medicaid are all on the chopping block now that the exciting and riveting elections are over. This will leave the elderly destitute, guarunteed, because it leaves them absolutely no avenue of escape, nowhere to turn. The best part is Obama and his wrecking crew can blame it all on the republicans who have been after these “entitlements” for years. I guess Obama will really fool them this time by doing it for them, a great plan. Still, who will the faithful vote for in two years – Sarah Palin? Yeah, sure.

Hi Rob,
Yes, I absolutely believe that SS Medicare/Medicaid are on the chopping block. Maybe even pretty soon, under the auspices of the lame-duck congress. Of course that would serve nicely to fulfill the blame the democrats meme, something BHO seems happy to accomodate.

Since Obama created a commission to do a study on how these programs could be cut long before the midterm elections they would be correct in this instance.
