i think i understand how they can do it to people

Very early into this debacle, I mentioned about making the bank show the note, and mentioned it a number of times since. I mentioned it before I heard of anyone else mentioning it, and was glad when I began to hear others mentioning it, not many people seemed to be listening, despite everything they owned being dumped in a heap on the curb and the locks changed on their homes.
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert E. Grossman in Central Islip, New York, in a decision he said he knew would have a “significant impact,” wrote that the membership rules of the company’s Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, or MERS, don’t make it an agent of the banks that own the mortgages.

“MERS’s theory that it can act as a ‘common agent’ for undisclosed principals is not supported by the law,” Grossman wrote in a Feb. 10 opinion. “MERS did not have authority, as ‘nominee’ or agent, to assign the mortgage absent a showing that it was given specific written directions by its principal.”

Merscorp was created in 1995 to improve servicing after county offices couldn’t deal with the flood of mortgage transfers, Karmela Lejarde, a spokeswoman for MERS, said in an interview last year. The company tracks servicing rights and ownership interests in mortgage loans on its electronic registry, allowing banks to buy and sell the loans without having to record the transfer with the county. It played a major role in Wall Street’s ability to quickly bundle mortgages together in securitized trusts.
I mentioned it other places beside cyberspace. People stared at me as though they were vexed cows looking at a cartoon animation running around their pasture.

A jerk would cop an attitude about this sort of thing, begin to feel people were stupid cows and stupid cows are for milking and for herding and for slaughter.

  1. It seems someone is punchin' the keys too hard at Hells Cargo. Too aggressive accounting; right, it's the accounting that's the problem. Just like gun laws, it's the 'tard pulling the trigger that's the problem. BoA is in there too.

    “Wells Fargo(WFC) is involved in an "ongoing internal dispute" over financial disclosure, prompting the departure of its CFO and leading some officials at the bank to contact regulators over concerns the bank is being too aggressive in its accounting…

    Here we all are waiting, with fraudulent mortgages, for Julian to leak truth that one can plainly see. Why?

  2. Self esteem issues? Lab food toxicity? "Learning" newspeak for "mesmerism"? Too many movies showing people waking up dead from proximity to officials and rich people? Always making it easier to avoid confrontation, even when they are the wrong ones and you are the one paying for it? Every word out the hairdos' grinning yaps on the news is a lie? We've designed community out of our culture? Keeping up with the Joneses makes it preferable to go pitch a tent behind the supermarket instead of be seen fighting a battle you think you can't win? Tap water? Chemtrails? Or just growing up with a box giving you everything you find out about the world so then everything you find out is ABSTRACT, like a TV show, to you... sometimes even your own family? The only heroes it's ever safe to adore are movie protagonists and celebrities?

  3. "Keeping up with the Joneses makes it preferable to go pitch a tent behind the supermarket instead of be seen fighting a battle you think you can't win?"

    I know. WE. CAN. WIN. WE MUST ACT.

    This is not a game.

  4. A good start would be to stop being too prideful to go to your neighbors to help act. I'm sure everyone in all the neighborhoods across America would rather storm city hall with their embattled neighbor than end up tsking over the bummer, see their houses go to seed, everything turn to shit, etc., but that involves COMMUNICATION with each other, and there are only a handful of communities DOING that. They've even gotten some press. Still. Nothing.

    The Middle East is in flames and the local MSM news is mute on the subject, devoting five minutes to a kleptomaniacal CAT. They installed night vision cameras to catch him in the act. Diane Sawyer is wincingly reporting about how something has to be done about Social Security and Medicare when she knows full well we are spending all those trillions keeping up over a thousand military bases across the globe. People are becoming convinced we don't have the money to hold a good society together.

    IT'S WORKING. We certainly can win, but we are not even trying, and we WON'T. The people telling the kind of truth that would lead to action are marginalized as kooks, "conspiracy nuts"... wuwu... because what they say goes against what's on the evening news, what's in the textbooks in school, even at university, and what scientists say, and what clergymen and public officials and political parties say.


    What you call it is how you act toward it, and that's how it gets to be how it is.

  5. @ neighbors. WAKE THE HELL UP! 60% of households in my county don't have "at home" internet. 40% percent of my county voted in 2010 for life to begin at conception(by constitutional amendment), outlawing abortion at the state level(didn't pass).

    I call it asleep at the wheel. Illiterates that read. A nation of addicts.
    Like Charlie Sheen says, "I said stay off the crack, and I still think that's pretty good advice, unless you can manage it socially. If you can manage it socially, then go for it, but not a lot of people can, you know?"

  6. she knows full well we are spending all those trillions keeping up over a thousand military bases across the globe.

    It sounds like you were listening to the same newscast I was. I was literally screaming at the TV - STOP THE FUCKING WARS!

  7. @ neighbors. You and I are the real heroes. I love you to death. Stand with me, we will die together, or we will live together, but I will not fight, dream, or die alone and neither will you because I won't let you. You are me, and I are we, and we're all here together.

    I know it's true.

    STOP THE FUCKING WARS! Try screaming it at the bank next time. Git R Done. The TV doesn't have ears.

  8. Heh. I was going to tell the same thing to BB2 about that hearing problem the TVs have.... :o]

    I was just bellowing about how we all need to go to DC and pluck these fucks from the offices.

  10. The map is kind of neat - it took a bit of clicking and panning, but I got it narrowed down to my neighborhood. However it seems to be having a problem finding what services are available here - it seems stuck downloading info.

  11. I'm getting a blank....

  12. My whole county is blank. Cross the state line and it looks like suburbia. I seriously think the infrastructure was better in Rwanda than is in the rural west.

    Data was from June.

  13. When it showed the whole state there was lots of color all over the Sacramento area, but on zooming in it went away.
