Economic Avengers



You can volunteer with Home Defenders, run by Acorn, to commit civil disobedience when the sheriff shows up to evict people who face foreclosure.

“This is a desperate, last-ditch effort by folks who are working two or three jobs, single mothers, elderly people who don’t know what else to do to save their homes,” said Ginny Goldman, Acorn’s lead organizer in Texas, where the campaign began in Houston on Saturday.

So instead of, say, paying off the bank or helping the elderly to sell their home and find a new place to live, they're going to make self-righteous stands against the government? Count me out.

How about instead we help these kind of people with financial advice and counseling? I know, you get much press exposure that way, but it will actually help someone rather than create the illusion of helping someone.

for gods sake, why would young folks want to prop up housing prices at uneconomic and unafordable prices? help people move of course, but keeping folks in homes they simply can't afford a few months more is just insanity. its time to reward responsibility.


time for some tea?

Why would you volunteer to commit crimes? It's not the banks fault that these losers are not paying their debt.
