Over 150 posts now, that is quite high for foreclosure related news events.

Yep, Class War on the Home Finance front. And the Cons blamed welfare queens for mortgaging homes they could never afford.

Class War on the Government front:

Perhaps knowing that these Private Spy Contractors are working with Corporations to Sabotage Public Protest Organizations [ like Occupy Wall Street ] to defuse public descent will get some outraged people organized and motivated!

I think there has to be the correct balance between being angry at the criminals and promoting good ideas, solutions, and people.

When I look at how few of the articles on these forums get "shared" I am once again reminded of the classic Pogo comic strip, "we have met the enemy, and they is us".

There's no time for niceties (like "correct balances" or etiquette or protocol) this is fucking Class War and we're losing. People are losing everything including their lives and the 1% waging this war are collecting all our worth and wealth. Most people are asleep, have no clue or are focusing on each other. So STFU, pass the ammo and aim for their heads! We can be nice at the trials!

I think it is important to intelligently dismantle rules that unfairly favor the rich elite rather than simply try and coerce change through violence.

"Violence?"

Metaphor!

It was a metaphor to use violence, not an advocacy, a metaphor.

Aim for their "cerebral" heads is perhaps what you meant.

You do know that the series The Walking Dead is not real don't you?

I've never seen it.

They have to shoot the undead, ever encroaching, Zombies in the head, otherwise they keep wreaking horror.

It's another metaphor.

Are you very young, or have you emerged from a long lasting coma?

I still think your original comment works better with the word "cerebral" in front of head.

The other thing about GOP Zombies, they don't think, they believe and obey. No reasoning with them...

My point is NOBODY has shared this link. Perhaps in part because they don't have their own blogs, but nonetheless MOST articles posted on this site don't get reshared. Just look to the left and see all the zeros.

You Wouldn't Believe Bank of America's Latest Scam

It appears that big bank Bank of America is up to the same old dirty tricks that helped contribute to America’s financial meltdown in the first place.

AlterNet | June 12, 2013 | By Thom Hartmann:

The American banking industry is back and more dangerous than ever before.

According to the FDIC, U.S. banks posted a record $40.3 billion profit in the first three months of the year.

This staggering profit tops the previous first-quarter profit record that was set more than six years ago, before the financial crisis and big-bank caused Bush Great Recession.

So, now that the big banks have fully recovered from the financial crisis that they themselves caused, and are raking in massive profits yet again, you would think that they’d be extra careful not to cause another financial meltdown, right?

Wrong.

It’s appears that big bank Bank of America is up to the same old dirty tricks that helped contribute to America’s financial meltdown in the first place.
