Timothy Geitner said a few months back that 40% of the houses in foreclosure remain unoccupied and that that is having a disastrous effect on neighborhoods and causing stress on municipal services .
In European cities , in Germany, England, Holland, Spain for instance or the case of Christiana in Denmark , alternatives expressed themselves by squattering vacant buildings, houses and in the aforementioned case of Christiana, an abandoned military base.
Why not stand with those who have lost their homes by putting them back in them through methods such as these ? Seems like a good way to bring attention to the issue, get some free press and provide housing to the homeless and dispossessed in a nation whose people are facing record poverty because of the banks and big business !
Our laws were created for the good of the citizens , the citizens were not created for the good of the laws !Apparently those laws now only apply to 98% of the population.
Killing more than a million in an illegal war based on transparent lies for resources and then profitting handsomely by doing so,( halliburton and the carlyle group )
Torturing and kidnapping individuals never formally charged with a crime and then using the states secret defense to shield those responsible from justice,
Spying on the American public en masse without a warrant and then passing retroactive immunity for the criminality,
Defrauding millions in the stock and housing markets and then putting billions of borrowed dollars, to be paid by the poor and their children with interest, into the hands of those who perpetrated the fraud, people who then promptly awarded themselves multi million dollar bonuses for their service to the elite on wallstreet .
Violating virtually every law known to God and man is alright apparently, if you have the right connections.
The rule of law is what keeps society civil . Perhaps the elite should consider this before violating them so openly !
