Wall Street bailout trips over grassrootsglobeandmail.com: Wall Street bailout trips over grassroots
: "Mr. Miller, who voted against the bailout, said he has never seen such public outrage against a piece of legislation in his seven years in Congress. His office received more than 1,000 telephone calls in the past few days urging him to reject the legislation. Some of his colleagues were getting as many as 2,000 e-mails and calls a day, many reading simply: “NO BAILOUT.”
“These were not your typical calls that were generated by special interest groups,” Mr. Miller, a Republican, said from his Washington office shortly after yesterday's vote. “This was Main Street America saying ‘No.' ”
Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Board chairman Ben Bernanke badly misread the public and made things worse with their comments, Mr. Miller said."

Record-Breaking Foreclosure Legal Suit : Government Repo Homes Blog
: "The record-breaking foreclosure legal suit is the story of the perseverance of Richard Davet. It is a testimony to his belief and conviction about the house that is his home.
The story starts in 1996 when Davet was given a foreclosure notice on his house in Cuyahoga County, Ohio. It was a spacious house with six bedrooms. Richard Davet was not like others to accept fate and move on to a rented house. He decided to cross swords with NationsBanc Mortgage Corp. in court.
He turned the fight into a full time operation by going through books on law in the local library. He challenged the lawsuit and then overwhelmed the court with motions, objections and many affidavits. At every turn he appealed against the rulings of the judge. This won for him the bonus of living for eleven years free from mortgage payments in his own house."
Stop The Bailout: VOTE AGAINST IT!!
It is unreasonable to vote for the financial services bail out. The alleged crisis has been in an ever accelerated burn for more than a year yet only now do we have an emergency? Please reject nationalizing institutional losses and the continued privatization of profits. I think a better use of our currency would be to provide immediate foreclosure protection and to allow the banks, finance firms and investment bankers to utterly fail. What are we saving with this bail out anyway? Vote against it.The Freedom Fellowship: Stop The Bailout: VOTE AGAINST IT!!
