From Occupy Our Homes in Minnesota:

75 community members forced 30 sheriffs to retreat from a Minnesota home as boards were removed. Two were arrested and one home defender was cut out of a barrel filled with concrete by sheriffs wielding a jackhammer and saw. We have held the home!

Please be on HIGH ALERT, another eviction attempt is likely to happen in the coming days.

Here's how you can help:

Call the following Chase employees to demand they halt the eviction!

Doug Braunstein
Chase Vice Chair
Mobile: 917.837.6775

James Crown
Chase Board Member
Home: 312.642.5512

Kevin Watters
CEO of Chase Mortgage Banking
Home: 914.771.6677

Thanks for your support--with your help we will continue fighting day and night to defend Sergio's family from an illegal eviction carried out by the public servants who are paid by the public to serve the public, not private, interest.

Squatting in homes like rednecks sporting the Confederate Flag is no foundation for society. Justice and order bring peace.

You're a Right Wing Authoritarian and if early Americans thought like you this would now be the 'United States of The United Kingdom' or USUK! Get it? Stop Occupying Your Ass With Your Head! Give It Up!

Why didn't the 75 "community" members show up with checks to help buy the house? Signs and chanting don't buy houses, work and money do that. God, no wonder they have so many problems.

any revolution that does not completely decapitate the individuals and structures of power from the peoples body is a failure.

I would agree with that. If you don't get all the cancer, it'll grow back.

OK, I called all three numbers. Mr Water's phone is not in service.....someone said I had the wrong number when I called Mr Crown, and I left a message on Mr Braunstein's answering machine appealing to him to do the right thing, and telling him i would do my best at exposing Chase for their inhumanity.

Why not just earn the money and pay for the house like most everyone else does? Say, there's an idea! Defaulting, squatting, and claiming something is yours when you haven't paid for it is kinda nuts and unfair to the people that lent you the money. Grow up.

[-] -1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 10 years ago

They didn't loan any money.

They loaned a debt.

That's how it works.

[-] -1 points by Stuffsnotfree (-18) 10 years ago

If that's how you think it works, it's no wonder that you're confused as to why these people can't be gifted the house.

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 10 years ago

Let me ask you a simple question.

If you owed $40,000 on a car worth $500?

And it was the guy who gave you the loan, that forced it's drop in value, what would you do?

Especially if you needed the transportation and it still ran.

[-] 0 points by Stuffsnotfree (-18) 10 years ago

Steal it? No, I don't think I'd do that. I think I'd either make good on my commitment or I'd expect what was pre-agreed to then take place (foreclosure).

Assuming foreclosure, your "owner" should have no problems. In your example, the person has the ability to pay, but chooses not to because prices have fallen and they're upset. If they have the ability to pay, then surely they can find a rental or another house at the now lower price.

Here's a better example of what these few maladapted protesters want. Someone speculates on higher prices using a lot of debt. Higher prices don't materialize. The buyer is upset and wants a "do-over" and the bank to be punished.

Using example numbers, they "buy" a house at $100,000 with $95,000 in borrowed money and $5,000 in equity. The home is now worth $60,000 and the mortgage should be cancelled because the price fell and banks are mean. The "buyer" rings up a $55,000 gain, but because this type of person is really bad at numbers, they don't even know it.

Ever rising real estate prices is not an entitlement program.

You didn't answer the question.

Are you a bot?

Now back to your dream.

EMs are stealing stuff all over the State.

You failed to google.

PS: Please don't give me the house flipper bullshit.

it's just that.

[-] 1 points by Stuffsnotfree (-18) 10 years ago

I would either make good on my commitment or flake on paying and anticipate repossession. Because I need transportation, I'd then buy one of those now much cheaper cars or impose on friends until I did.

How clear can I be about answering?

Buy house with borrowed money. Prices rise and I'm happy. I win and keep the winnings. Prices fall and I'm upset. If I lose, it means it's someone else's fault and I should still be allowed to win. So, hand losses to banks because they're mean and so that I can still win. Seems to sum up these r-tards pretty well.

Rising prices is not an entitlement program. Grow up.

I can't help it you're a fly by night house flipper.

That's not the situation here.

Have you tried actually owning one yet, or are you just pretending to be a flipper?

Because so far, you're all over the map. Plus you completely skipped over the fact that the guy who OKed your loan is the one who caused the value to crash.

It was set up to do so.

Oh....and by the by.......You just lost your job, because you have no transportation and your friend got sick and couldn't drive you to work every day, so you're late on your house payment, and BofA is asking for your blood.....and you're fresh out.

Now your friend is feeling better, but is moving to Detroit for a job at GM Tech., and your old boss is pissed at you and won't give you a recommendation, so the only place left in town that will hire you is Wallyworld.............@30hrs a week

You're fucked.

I've owned a number of houses over the years. I did so responsibly, never defaulting and understanding the basics of not over-borrowing and that foreclosure comes with default. I understood that houses aren't free. See, perhaps it's understanding these entirely obvious points that's helped me not to have problems.

Value "crashing" doesn't cause default. It doesn't cause someone to stop paying. But it does create the incentive to stop paying and to hand the losses to the lender. In this case, they want to hand the loss to the lender and to deepen the loss by stealing the collateral in some crazy person rationalization.

Reading your post, I think you're best suited to renting.

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 10 years ago

Paid 'em all off too. eh?

Strangely, you gave no response to the scenario I just gave you, yet you expect one from yours.......

Those kinds of things actually happen, and I didn't even mention, that with all that time on your hands, you're girlfriend is pregnant now.

Around here?

The rich were the first to just walk away from their obligations.

Often ripping out any improvements they made, dropping the value even further.

Walked away, scott free, even after that.

I don't see that mentioned in your little world either.

[-] 1 points by Stuffsnotfree (-18) 10 years ago

Your rambling non-sense? That was a "scenario"? Well, alright, that's call it that. Bad things happen in life. It's best to have have a brain and understand that when you go around signing documents to "buy" things.

If you're that unstable, that unable to comprehend cause and affect, that inept at planning, then how about this: rent. Problem solved.

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 10 years ago

Rent's too fuckin' high!!!

Try and do that on those 30hrs@ Wallyworld.

They're all slum lords these days anyway.

Must be a living hell to rent in a libe(R)tarian state too.

No regulations, no rent control, no effective grievance procedure, no laws to protect the renter.

Apartments, cum, condos, is the latest rent scam.

So is that what you are?

A slum lord??

[-] 1 points by Stuffsnotfree (-18) 10 years ago

Even in your mom's basement? LOL

At some point, you might just have to grow up a little to have a better life. Functioning adults figure this stuff out every day. You can too.

Excuse me?

WTF is that supposed to mean? And you laugh about it?

My Mother has been gone for many years, and I've been married for well over 30...

The home I live in is paid off, but I still understand the pitfalls that are placed on people.

You on the other hand don't.

Some of which I've described to you, yet you ignore every one of them, while pretending to be perfect in every way.

You even missed the part in the thread where it says "illegal eviction".

[-] 1 points by Stuffsnotfree (-18) 10 years ago

I don't pretend to be perfect. I'm simply explaining that basic issues of competency come into play when making a housing choice. If home ownership is over someone's head for whatever reasons in life, that's a situation for renting. Like home-owning, renting offers a near endless variety of choices.

If even renting is too much to handle, then perhaps living with a relative works. Beyond that, I guess it's a group home or becoming a ward of the state. See, in our country, you're supposed to have a really really good excuse before you have a right to live off of someone else.

"Illegal"... very funny. That's standard demagoguery of the leftwing moonbats.

I was surprised to find that some on the board didn't know about the Boycott of Koch Bros products, so just to reiterate, Boycott all the Big Banks! Use your local Credit Unions instead.

And remember, this is not a matter of deadbeat homeowners as the RW, 1%-Cons-MSM keep repeating.
