Unfortunately, this story is all too common as of late. As if evicting a family from their home is not bad enough under normal (poor choice of words) circumstances Dirma Rodriguez’s story takes the heartless act of foreclosure to all new levels. I will let you read the story and formulate your own opinion, but it is important to remember that it was individuals like Dirma Rodriguez, the tax payer, who enabled Bank of America to continue to exist. It is also important to point out that it is through the efforts of Occupy Fights Foreclosure and not the government that potential foreclosure victims are staying in their homes. For those who would label these homeowners as deadbeats, there is a difference between willingly choosing to ignore your obligations and those who, because of economic difficulties, are no longer able to keep pace with obligations.
As an aside, Barack Obama will be accepting his nomination at the Bank of America Stadium this September. Take what you will from that statement, but just keep in mind that a politician’s loyalty is not to you, the voter, but instead to those with the most money.
