OK, newsflash, Take Back the Land (check out their blog)and several other grassroots organizations are encouraging people take back their foreclosed property. I'm scratching my head over this one. Have you guys heard this story? Squatters are taking over foreclosures.
In the video the woman refers to her Mother who apparently "owned" the home, ok, I'm just saying, all those people were living with their, Mother, Grandmother, whatever, in that one house and they couldn't figure out how to keep "their" home out of foreclosure. Come on, give me a break, they were living off of a relative and can't figure out that they can't live somewhere for free? In the words of John Stossel, "Give me a break."
Foreclosure doesn't happen over night does it? The woman in the video goes on to say that having a home is a right, having a job is a right, having utilities is a right. (Oh and get this, after further research, since moving back into the house they have "internet service", ok, #1 who is paying for it? and #2, if they are internet savvy, Google, "how to keep your home from going into foreclosure".)
Before all of the compassionate, bleeding heart liberals come out of the wood work, I'm sorry this family is having a hard time, but my first thought when I saw all of those children was, hello, it's 2009, do they know about birth control. (I mean, do some internet research!) Do not expect me to feel sorry for you because you brought those poor little children into this world knowing that you probably would expect someone else to take care of them. I feel sorry for the children, but will they learn from this experience? Maybe, but realistically, probably not, that is the sad fact.
Oh and the kicker of this story, the woman in the video stated that the "home" is something to be cherished! If they cherished this home, doesn't it seem rational to think that they would have done anything to keep from losing it?
Here's more on this family:
MIAMI - When the woman who calls herself Queen Omega moved into a three-bedroom house here in December, she introduced herself to the neighbors, signed contracts for electricity and water and ordered an Internet connection.
What she did not tell anyone was that she had no legal right to be in the home.
When the last sane American leaves Miami, turn out the lights and bring the American flag. Realistically we started losing Miami in the 70's. VN8
