Is this the year Wall Street completes its purchase of Florida’s Court System?

For the fourth year in a row, an anti-consumer, Anti-American bill, backed by the very powerful mortgage servicing industry, is cruising through the Florida House of Representatives, and this time, it looks like it could actually become law! It has already passed through a very important committee.

After 4 years of trying, it appears Wall Street has finally purchased enough of our state legislators to enact a bill that will eliminate due process and fundamental justice in Florida foreclosure cases. Rep. Kathleen Passidomo’s HB 87, perversely named Florida Fair Foreclosure Act, makes it much easier for mortgage companies to foreclose on residential mortgages by literally eliminating a homeowner’s right to fight the foreclosure.

I could see such a law in China, North Korea, or Cuba, but I never thought I would see such an Anti-American bill proposed by Florida’s Republican Party.

Under the proposed bill, a bank files a civil complaint alleging the necessary elements of a foreclosure. The Court then sets a “Show Cause” hearing, wherein the homeowner must disprove the allegations.

Yes, the Court must assume the mortgage industry is telling the truth, despite the fact that the entire country knows mortgage companies have been caught lying in nearly every foreclosure every filed in the United States in the last decade or so. This should only make sense to Lance Armstrong.

1. More corporate theft.

It might be fun to see it happen to some (R) in their legislature, then watch them squirm.

Too bad there's not a REAL Opposition Party in this Country ...

3. Lock stock and barrel

 

NCT hopes you'll enjoy 'Urinetown,' Lockstock and Barrel


The title’s awful, says Little Sally of “Urinetown.” And that may be (or not). But the players of the Narberth Community Theatre hope audiences won’t judge by name alone and give this Tony-Award-winning Broadway musical a chance.

The title might not reveal much (or too much, depending on your point of view), but the show tells a tale of social injustice, corporate greed and political corruption, wrapped in comedy and musical numbers. While telling its story, “Urinetown” also pokes fun at and pays homage to the history of musicals, with nods to “West Side Story” and “Les Misérables,” among others. (The show won Best Book of a Musical for its original story.)

It’s a tongue-in-cheek satire about a drought-plagued town where water is so scarce that private toilets have become unthinkable. So people are at the mercy of a corporation that maintains a monopoly on public amenities — people have to pay to use the bathroom.

we're toast. Floridia is fast becoming a nightmarish place.

5. Homeowners in Florida are so screwed.

When the State Attorney's Office won't investigate rampant fraud and corruption in local leadership; and the Orlando Sentinel won't report on it, you know you have a serious, serious problem.

The Fourteenth Amendment and a resurrection of Algernon Sydney Sullivan is the only way to protect us.
