They Want America To Fail!

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0590712

It wouldn't be a day without blogging and trying to make a difference regarding the insane, absurd and abusive environment we as short sale agents and others who work in the short sale arena must endure just to earn a difficult living.

I was brought up to believe in a work ethic where if you did an honest day's work, for an honest day's pay and did good job you would make an honest living. That no longer applies in America. As I sit on the phone all day calling bank after bank or at the computer writing email after email or calling client after client for documents or putting together short sale packages I wonder what happened to our wonderful business? No, make that our country.

Today an associate made an astute observation that prompted this blog post, "it seems like they (banks) want America to fail". I thought about her comment for about a second and concluded she's right. So, we take it and become lemmings jumping off the cliff to our own suicides and they win or we fight back and they lose. I haven't totally formulated a plan, but one is jelling in my head and your feedback would be a great help. Since NAR doesn't care, nor does our corporate headquarters (for those of us with branded companies), since the 545 mostly crooks we have elected to lead us in the legislature, and the Presidency don't care, except the Justices who are appointed and are there for life and don't count, have all sold America out for the small price of a vote why should we take it?

Do we realize that an infinitesimal 545 highly questionable people are controlling over 300,000,000 American's? What am I missing?  So, my initial thoughts are to form a group, let's call ourselves the Foreclosure War Army. I already have the URL. With donations and input from several hundred thousand Realtors and others that are concern we can set up a not for profit organization and force those who are suppose to lead either do their job or they're out. Perhaps we can run major ads in newspapers, magazines and television, inform the public of just how bad things are and that the banks and our elected officials are raping them/ We can give them advise and what they can do about it and how they (the enemy) are continuing to keep their foot on the throat of any chance of the housing market recovery which will lead us out of our depression. Remember, 1 out of 5 households are underwater and therefore affected or know someone that is. Am I crazy or what?

Banks don't want America to fall.  The administration does.  All of the inane activities flow down.  Part of what they flow down to is the banking system.  To that're on!

I deal with the banks/servicers on a daily basis and I call them with a smile... think positively... I am very proud of what you are doing and it is amazing that you have 250+ under your belt!

Edward, I love the idea. When do we start? How about a march on the mall at DC? We can make our own videos and post them on youtube. We can get the word out that we're fighting back.

Keep us posted on this one.  The banks don't care if we fail.  They will still get their absurd bonus' and a bailout whenever they run the books into the ground.
