Christmas...my FAVORITE time of the entire year!
We've had so many lovely holiday celebrations at our home over the past 12 years, I always look forward to the times we open up our home for wonderful meals and entertaining for our many, many friends.
It's a hectic time for us with our retail consignment gallery but we squeeze in special celebrations even so.
So this year I'm looking forward to the holidays but also dreading them at the same time!
Our court date for our summary judgment case goes before the judge on December 4th. This is when the fat lady sings.
I'm hoping for our attorneys to win our case with all of the proof of fraud that has been committed against us during this long crime riddled case that GMAC, now OcWen has cooked up against us to steal our beautiful home in foreclosure proceedings.
Some will say...hey deal with it...move on. But at our age in life moving on isn't so easy anymore. Once you get to your so called golden years you should be entitled to keep what you've spent your entire life working hard for. Not sacrificing your home to help amass the millions that these creepy banks have made for themselves by stealing from good people.
Their tactics I can tell you are worse than the mafia coming to your neighborhood store and shaking you down for 'protection'...right... protection my fat toe!
Especially when you begged for a year to get a modification payment that was a complete lie...just another effort to grab a lot more money while the bankers were cooking up forged and fraudulent documents to cheat their way through the court system. We paid NINE months of modified payments each month being promised NEXT month you'll be on a permanent new plan...look at us...such a good bank helping you out here!
If we had judges in FL that resolved cases according to the merits of LAW and not the bias of slamming foreclosures through at ANY cost clearing their court dockets in record time we might have a snowball's chance.
BUT...being the realist that I am...I have to look at the reality of the whole sordid mess and be prepared to move on if we have too.
It surely isn't that I didn't give it one HE** of a fight! I contacted Senators, the FL General Attorney, The Consumer Protection Bureau, some upstanding news agencies that I thought might help...actually every Tom, Dick, and Harry that I could possibly think of to shine a light on the perpetual and continual fraud these big banks have gotten away with. Sadly to deaf ears.
This world has gotten so caught up in the 'crisis of the moment' that the little guy...you know who we are...the ONES that pay for all of their shenanigans and misdeeds...there is precious little time for the people in power to devote to decency and justice for the little guy.
It's just to darn easy to steam roller over us and go on to the next big world event.
This has GOT to stop...we need to stop being SHEEP and start being anarchists! What are our founding fathers saying up there in the vapors that made America the home of the free and the land of the brave?
I'm really, really stressed over the 'save our house' fight.
But I also am wise enough to prepare myself for bad news if that's what we have to contend with. It just SUCKS that my Christmas gift this year may be the shaft from powerful bankers that don't care a whit about our home and what it means to us, real people that live in it and adore it and have treasured it with their friends and family for so many years. To them it's nothing more than a number in their chart of profits. It just makes me sad and mad at the same time!
If you can believe it sadder still.... is our tainted judicial system so completely biased and totally dictated to by the money mongers that pull their puppet strings...that they look the other way and plead stupidity to the facts put right under their noses! It's a sad day in America when you come to realize that the bankers and Wall Street own this country along with the congress and most likely our Presidents as well.
The huge financial settlement that Pam Bondi (FL's AG) orchestrated against the banks to give back to the people who were harmed is such a fiasco it's almost laughable...the biggest amount of that money was used to rehire Judges in retirement so they can throw the good people of FL out of their homes faster! WHAT...yes Lucy...it's the world we live in today.
In the meantime...we the people...are the least of their concerns in climbing over each other and clawing for the golden ring.
Honestly...for these holidays...I hope they choke on it!
Keepin' it real...that's the facts on how I feel!
On a happy note...I lost 2 pounds..even with all of this 'will we have a roof over our head for the holidays' and that's something positive.
