When I first saw this headline that was posted by “Common Dreams. org” I thought “OMG” this can’t be true. But of course it is true. It’s like watching the world through a glass bottom boat. You see it out there, but you’re not really “feeling it”. Or in this case experiencing it unless you’re there, or have been there ground zero.
Those familiar with the SOP’s mission to assist homeowner’s who have become victims of foreclosure, can relate to this story being at the TIP of the spear when it comes to the reality of how distressed homeowners are suffering. Those that organized and managed the Mortgage Note “securitiztion food chain” feasted on the 30 to 1 leverage of the Notes pooled into the securitized Trusts, and all the documented fraud that was (and is) involved. And to date “no indictments”.
Folks are “upset”, in too many cases beyond upset, and they want to exercise their 1st Amendment rights to express their thoughts. Unfortunately, this quote from this very same article gives the “true nature” of the protestor’s experience that day;
Soles Of Passion stand with all homeowners suffering foreclosure, and trying to maintain support for everybody’s right to quite enjoyment of their homes. As expressed in the Soles Of Passion lyrics; “I need a place of my own, I need a place that I call home”.
And we’re not just saying that, we’re serious about it. We’re putting our money where our mouth is. (Steven and Myla launch fundraising for the Freedom Assistance Foundation).
