Now that’s what I’m talking about!  I have said the richest of the rich, and the Mega Giants on Wall Street are taking us all for a ride.  They have ripped off the American public. They took out our 401(K’s) and got away with it!  They took out our mutual Funds, and got away with it!  They took our benefits, and got away with it!  They took away our Health care benefits, and got away with it. They even took our homes, and got away with that too.

There seemed nothing could be done about it. They wiped our slate clean, filled their pockets with our assets, and walked away richer than ever before.  We are slowly becoming aware that we the American people have become the victims of the biggest scam ever. A scam that went on for 40 or 50 years.  All designed to get the American worker to invest his hard-earned dollars thinking that he would live a grand comfortable retirement.  Then just as he was about to do just that, these Mega Banks go under, as do the Investment Firms, and on the way out the door they took us for everything we had.  AND THEY GOT AWAY WITH IT!!!!! All because our Federal Government, and the likes of Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd failed to assure safeguard laws were in place protecting the consumer.

But today, SWEET JUSTICE!!! A Fla. Attorney who had won a settlement for a couple was not getting satisfaction.  The Bank of America, thought they would never have to pay off on the settlement, where a family lost their home without just cause. Just stall long enough, appeal this or that, move the case from attorney to attorney, challenge this, challenge that, then hold off. One excuse after another.  That is until the attorney decided that enough was enough!  He foreclosed on the Bank.  He sent in the moving vans, walked in, and said we’ll take that computer, and that one over there, then we’ll take a few of those fine Oak Desks over there, Oh, those office chairs ought to bring a pretty dollar or two. Bullet Proof glass goes for big bucks too. Load it up boys!

Well, suffice it to say, the bank decided that the better option was to pay up.  They payed the couple off, and apologised for the delay. It seems that the attorney handling the case went under. Their case got lost in the shuffle. Uh…Huh.  Sure it did.

That is the point I was making in a recent article over at another site at The Lansing State Journal. (tallboy52). We the people have got to rise up and make it clear we have had enough. We must stand up to these Mega giants, and Congressmen as well. We have to make it clear, we are no longer listening to a bunch of one liners, designed to dazzle us without any real meaning. You are going to Congress to do a job, and by God, you are going to do that job, or your out in the street along with the rest of the trash! ……..ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

That is what happened here. And if more of us did the same, we might, just maybe, get a handle on this country, and bring the ol’ girl around, and return America to what she used to be. But we the People, have to rise up and do our part. We, you, and me, as well as our neighbors must become part of the solution….Not part of the problem!

To me, that attorney is an American Hero!

Have a great day……….and as usual……..GOD BLESS AMERICA!



I am 62 years old. I've been blogging for several years. I am into History and Politics as well as currant events. The latter being the main issues covered on these pages. I was a Community Advocate for twenty years, and a volunteer aide in a State Representatives Office in my home state of Michigan. While I have basically ceased these activities, I still watch the world around me closely and report on it as much as I can, which I might add is often. I encourage comments on my Blogs. I only ask that we keep our opinions clean and without insults threats or intimidation. I hope you take time to read The Horton Journal, and look forward to your comments.
