Michael Angelo Bosch speaks...
There are many untold stories of regular hard working families nationwide suffering of their homes being foreclosed on because of malicious mob type tactics forced upon them by the banking industry and mortgage companies involved by selling these unsuspected victims false hope and a lie and labeling the snake oil A PIECE OF THE AMERICAN DREAM"
These banks and mortgage companies involved knew these mortgages weren't going to hold but out of GREED they took advantage of these uneducated families and took them for a ride, uneducated in the sense that they didn't understand banking policies fine print mortgage contracting or procedures but believed these so-called RESPECTFUL PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCED BUSINESS people and signed up for a piece of the AMERICAN DREAM.
Now if we rob a bank we're called crooks but if the banks rob us it's called business"
To date no real JUSTICE came out of all this and with regard to the banking bail outs these big banks need to pay back the money they stole and not just a percentage but the full amount with interest and while we're at it these big banks need to pay their share of taxes as well!!
We the 99% are tired of these lope holes and free passes these big banks companies or 1 %ers receive while we pay more taxes than Kellog's got corn flakes and everything around us keep going up except out salaries "
WE THE PEOPLE will not allow this type of shake down or squeeze to continue any longer "
WE THE 99% with people power
with people dollars as consumers and with our votes united as ONE can make a difference so STAND UP STAND STRONG and STAND TOGETHER and remember....
BANKS GOT BAILED OUT...WE GOT SOLD OUT!!!!
