I hope you meant to say fascism and not communism, because we resemble nothing close to communist state.

Why? My theory is that the Obama administration is trying to secure its 2012 campaign war chest with this settlement deal. If Barry can make this foreclosure thing go away for the banks, you can bet he’ll win the contributions battle against the Republicans next summer.

No don't impeach him it costs too much money and we can just vote the scum out next year.
But jeez other than Ron Paul there is no hope.
I see a American spring on the future.
insider working within the highest levels of government– including helping to elect Barack Obama in 2008. Here now are the words of Insider, unedited
You and too many goddamn Americans don’t see it so don’t feel so bad. You know, other world leaders see it. Putin. Sarkozy. Merkel. Harper…Barack Obama is incapable of anything remotely resembling leadership, but he is also quite capable of the kind of dangerous arrogance that the very worst leaders in history possessed
That’s where you’ll most often find the President of the United States – the most powerful man in the free f*****g world. He often sits with one leg draped over one of the chair’s arms and the other leg stuck straight onto the floor. Shorts, sweats, a t-shirt, and like I said, no shoes or just those sandal things that so many of the younger people like to wear these days. And that leg that’s draped over an arm of the chair will be bopping up and down, like…like someone with a lot of nervous energy. Like a kid does. And there’s the smell of smoke hanging on the president.
Next you’re gonna notice how small the guy looks. Really thin. He pads his suits up you know. The top end. The shoulders. It became an actual issue during the 2008 campaign – some of his handlers were saying it made his neck look too small. Fact is, it made his neck look just like it is – small. The guy is scrawny. All knees and elbows sitting in that chair. Sometimes he gets up when you come in, sometimes he remains seated and will just turn the volume on the TV down with the remote and say, “What you got?” That foot is bouncing up and down while you give him the briefing, but he rarely looks over at you – always looking at whatever is on the television.
I’m trying to lay out the psychological foundation of the son-of-a-bitch. You think people might want to know what this man is really like? How everything around him – the whole #ing image…it’s a charade. It’s a lie. He fooled me – he fooled a whole lot of us. And he is frightened every hour of every day that the country will find out.
Obama sounds like an incompetent basketcase, as if maybe he is indeed some sort of lobotomized Manchurian Candidate. If this insider is correct, and not fabricating or exaggerating,.
The UN and property rights
...The land policy of the United Nations was first officially articulated at the United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat I), held in Vancouver, May 31 - June 11, 1976. Agenda Item 10 of the Conference Report sets forth the UN's official policy on land. The Preamble says:
"Land...cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interests of society as a whole. Public control of land use is therefore indispensable...."
The Preamble is followed by nine pages of specific policy recommendations endorsed by the participating nations, including the United states. Here are some of those recommendations:
(b) All countries should establish as a matter of urgency a national policy on human settlements, embodying the distribution of population...over the national territory.
(c)(v) Such a policy should be devised to facilitate population redistribution to accord with the availability of resources.
(a) Public ownership or effective control of land in the public interest is the single most important means of...achieving a more equitable distribution of the benefits of development whilst assuring that environmental impacts are considered.....
(b) Land is a scarce resource whose management should be subject to public surveillance or control in the interest of the nation.
(d) Governments must maintain full jurisdiction and exercise complete sovereignty over such land with a view to freely planning development of human settlements....
(a) Agricultural land, particularly on the periphery of urban areas, is an important national resource; without public control land is prey to speculation and urban encroachment....
What he sounds like to me is some one who is very nervous - as in scared half to death.

At least one AG is on our side.
Eric Schneiderman of NY.
He is fighting this and he needs our support.
Write to each of your crooked AG's and let them know how you feel.
These banks cannot get away with taking in billions of dollars and not pay back the average person.
I am sick and tired of being sick and tired and will have to march to DC for this crap.
NY AG WINS
TELL THESE SONS OF BITCHES HOW YOU FEEL WRITE YOUR ATTORNEY GENERALS

It's not only people that bought more house than they could afford that are affected by all of this. Anyone who bought responsibly and then lost their job because the economic rug was swept from the world's feet when all the easy credit the banks issued went sour is hurt by this.
