Another monstrous bank foreclosure story creates a new #Occupier!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE January 9, 2012

Long-time South Whittier (California) resident, Virginia Hosking has been told that she needs to move. Hosking is another victim in the foreclosure market. After a job loss, unemployment and her husband’s unexpected death about 18 months ago, Hosking received a knockout punch from the Bank of America. They foreclosed on her home of thirty years.
During a recent garage sale, Hosking tacked a sign onto the side of her house, located at 10656 Ceres Avenue in Whittier, stating: Really Bank of America? After thirty years?

“The foreclosure caught me off-guard.” States Hosking. “I had been trying to get Bank of America to work with me and lower the payments so I could maintain ownership, and the people at the bank told me they would work with me.” So it came as a surprise when Hosking learned that the foreclosure had taken place and she was served a notice to move. When Congresswoman Sanchez’ office called Bank of America to inquire, they were informed that Bank of America representatives had worked with owner Wilson Hosking for the last 12 months to amend payments but were unable to get anything accomplished. This came as a surprise to Virginia Hosking as her husband had died 16 months previously.
Hosking has found a home and she and her daughter, Krystle Hosking, are busy moving their belongings. Hosking is planning an “Occupy” moment before she leaves. Her anger over the bank bailouts and the abuse the bank shows to its customers has been overwhelming for her. She plans to “camp out” on the last day she is allowed to be in her home. Her friends, family members and members of Occupy will be in attendance. Hosking said, “I have a great deal of respect for the Occupy Movement that is standing up to big government. We need to show our outrage.”
Occupying will begin Monday, January 16th in her front yard area. Come join our day of protest and education at her home."

2. "Standing up to big government"?

Big government? Is that really the message she gets out of this? Does she think that socialist, Obama, threw her out of her home?

I'm sorry. That's just stupid

10. That reinforces my point

If anything, she should be upset about the lack of government regulation. She should want big government to do something.

11. Please, it is an election year.

If we criticize the God King, we will be enabling the other side.

Unless there is the chance for the third side, especially those who Occupy, as gaining the opower to enable the People themselves.
