They could offer some of the houses for the people who lost homes in the Hurricaine .Or get a few homeless people off the streets (Mainly women and children and Vietnam vets)
Or they could give them to charity groups and turn them into group homes for disabled peoples or the elderly (instead of nursing homes) ...there are lots of things I could think of to do with all the houses.......

Heres what really irks me in the whole situation. Go back to the presidential primary debates and listen to all of the candidates mock Ron Paul for his economic policies. Yet almost everything he said would happen has come to pass. Now we have all of congress today acting like they are these great saviors, yet they have all refused to listen to Paul and others say this for years.
Now we have congress people saying, "We regret having to do this, but we have no choice". But they did have a choice. They could have prevented this from happening decades ago, but they either were to lazy to learn about it or criminal wanting it to happen so there friends could get rich.
Shumer was shocked at what was being said? Well, I'm a lowly college student, and I along with countless other people have seen this coming for years. Yet the same people that are shocked today were calling me and others like me kooks for years. Now I'm suppose to trust these people make economic decisions?
We the people should demand accountability. We now have to pay over a trillion dollars in taxes to bail this companies out, and somehow everyone is escaping blame. Now is the time to tell your family and friends just how corrupt these politicians are, and try to get them to stop supporting the garbage Republicans and Dems. Let them know how the Fed is a private bank, and how while our economy is reeling, these jerks are getting wealthier and wealthier.
If anything good can come out of this situation, it would be that average people will start to see just how corrupt our politicians and the Fed are, and we may be able to finally end them both. Sadly, the pessimist in me knows this won't happen, but I'll try my hardest to keep informing people to try to make it happen.

it is obvious who runs this country...the wealthy through the fed. our leaders in the congress and the white house are mere spokesmen for this group that have profit as their god, and to hell with the citizens. we are merely the unwashed consumer slaves, to be kept on the leash of ignorance. for the general public to recieve a circumcision of their meager savings into the rabbit hole of free-market capitalism is likened to a viscid, pustulant, oozing sore lying in the sweaty, fleshy, folds of a fat and gelatinous ass.
Wait .....isn't that a scene from Star Wars/Return of the Jedi- with Jabba the Hut ????.... but yeah its accurate...
