So now we know how to save our homes if we are falling behind in our mortgage payments. Just shoot yourself. Hopefully you will survive the shooting like Addie Polk did. Of course if you don't, it's no big deal. I mean who wants to be homeless in this day and age?
Poor Addie was 90 years old, and she must have figured, what the hell. She lost her husband who she purchased the home with 38 years ago, and she was about to lose the house itself. Can you imagine? All those memories; a place she called home for 38 years, about to be taken from her? I can't. Thank you "Countrywide" and your scum bag executives.
Conservatives will say that Addie got her just deserts. That she should have been in a nursing home. That she shouldn't have taken out a 30 year mortgage at 86 years old, and that she kept refinancing over and over. Yes, but how else was she going to survive? Oh cry me a river. And what did she do with the $11,380.00 she got from the mortgage, field? I bet she blew it on casino junkets and a big screen television. You know those old people love to sit home and watch television. She should have been more careful with her money, has she ever heard of a reverse mortgage, field? Over at FOX they are all over ACORN, but nothing about Addie. Of course not, that would be too.... right.
Fannie Mae spokesman, Brian Faith, said the company will sign the property over outright to poor Addie. "Just given the circumstances, we think it's appropriate.." I guess we should all thank Dennis Kucinich for bringing this to Fannie Mae's attention by mentioning the plight of the poor woman in Congress. But what about all the other people facing foreclosure in A-merry-ca? People who don't want to quite go the Addie Polk route, but who are suffering in unimaginable ways never the less? What about them?
Those are the people Mr. Morton and his side kick should be speaking to as their campaign winds down. But they don't. Instead, all we hear about is how unfit the guy with the Muslim name is to lead us. And how exotic and unknown he is. I bet people like Addie Polk and others facing hard times don't care. All they want is someone in power who really cares about them and looks out for their interest. Someone who will help them save their homes, and ultimately themselves.
