What could go wrong?

Under one idea being discussed, delinquent homeowners would surrender ownership of their homes but would continue to live in the property for several years, the sources told Reuters.

    Obama is going to do this to the states, too. Take over the delinquent ones, including CA first and foremost…

    Here in Orange Country FL, the local gov is debating a tax increase to keep the local bus system running. LYNX, it’s called.

    The jobless rate is 10%+ around here, and they are playing their games. It makes me think it’s all going to have to burn down and be rebuilt. But that way is dangerous too.. who knows what constitution we will have if we start over?

    I think the only way to stop it is for governors to start filing lawsuits based on the 10th amendment. Get Obama’s agenda tied up in litigation. Isn’t that what the Left does?

    The political class, at all levels, does whatever they want. They know we don’t want any of this crap, but they are going to let us have it anyway.

    A real possibility with some governors, and the sooner the better. Others are too happy to sell their souls (and states) to Obama’ central government.

    Congress can’t stop him. It has to be done from outside DC.

    This is the last straw. I’m not voting for Obama ever again. He’s promised me everything, including a job, food, getting out of Iraq and Afghanistan, a car, an open and honest adminstration, bipartisanship, and now he says he’s going to pay my rent if I default on my mortgage? With what, a California IOU?

    I have been out of touch today, but saw headlines in the Detroit papers that he made announcement about spending billions to retrain laid off employees. It the typical Obama solution; throw money at the problem.

    Logical next step!!!

    Already have millions of Americans on the dole. Welfare, Food-Stamps, subsidized this & that. And Government “workers” depending on Uncle Obama for their paychecks.

    But we have a bunch of folks who ARE hurting, but who aren’t, YET, dependant on the Government. Homeowners who can’t make their payments.

    Enter Uncle Obama to “help them out” by letting them stay in their homes…but surrender ownership. These people are now TOTALLY dependant on Obama for shelter!

    Images of Mr. Potter in “It’s a Wonderful Life” are running through my head. When the panic starts he buys up people’s shares for $.50 on the dollar. Then they owe HIM…and must live in HIS housing!

    Yup. The gmae plan is going just fine. Soon our once proud social, economic and political system will look more like East Germany than East Germany did!

    And who is going to pay the farmer for his food?

    And what is it they are going to pay the farmer with?

    No farmers, no food. How long will the dependent class last?

    Obama is still The One, the It, the All, he’s that surprise piece of candy you find when you think the box is empty, the messiah. . . .

    Just don’t wake me up, not yet at least. All I need is a few more months of blissful surrender and I promise I’ll get up.

    Oh Lord Obama, won’t you at least buy me a Mercedes Benz ?
    The uptown folks drive Porsches, they must make amends.
    Worked hard watching Oprah most of my lifetime, no help from my friends,
    So Lord Obama, won’t you at least buy me a Mercedes Benz ?

    Oh Lord Obama, won’t you buy me a health care plan?
    Working to pay for it myself is too hard on me.
    I want to get prescription drugs and a doctor for free,
    So Lord Obama, won’t you buy me a health care plan ?

    Oh Lord Obama, won’t you buy me a retirement on the town ?
    Prove that you’ll take care of me and buy my next round.
    Oh Lord, won’t you buy me that big house down the block that I found?
    I’m counting on you, Lord Obama, please don’t let me down.

    gerryowen: “We are WAAAAAY past shotgun pistol pitchfork time.

    1931: “Frankenstein” debuts, starring Boris Karloff. Movie ends with the monster trapped in tower which the pitchfork wielding townsfolk promptly set on fire!

    2008: “Obamastein” debuts, starring Barak Obama. Movie BEGINS with the townsfolk electing the monster “President”. 20 minutes into the movie the monster has begun herding the townspeople who voted for him into the tower and is busy stacking wood around the outside. The monster realizes he will have to outlaw pitchforks in order to get the rest of the townspeople into the tower before he torches it. Second reel of the movie is just beginning…

    Who’s Randy and what’s this about? Even acroso is writing about it.
