Update Specifics: Re: (Personal Note) "The 99%" Speak out Anew! Re: I’m going to DC to end "Too Big to Jail"
Please Note: This email (below) that came from "Campaign for a Fair Settlement" "HIT HOME" to me particularly because right now I am in the middle of trying to stop the sale of my home--scheduled for May 21--I've owned & lived in for 10 yrs. (See further paragraph below in RED bolded color (computer idioTsynchronicity wouldn't print typesize preference of 12 pt.) for more info.).
When Humanists of Florida Executive Director Teresa McBain spoke to our Orlando Freethinkers & Humanists group last month; she spoke of a foreclosure sale situation that the Humanist Community had helped stop. Her husband stated to the group that, "more than anything else," the Community's coming together around this person to support him impressed her husband with the ethics & humanity of
[When one is fighting for one's basics, there's not much energy left over to fight other concerns of Humanists such as Separation of Church & State -- when One is in imminent danger of being Separated from one's HOME!]
The ultimate fate of Humanity rests on winning this fight (& others like it) --as a "Line in the Sand" against those who would deprive us of our Human Rights & Basic Freedoms. Freethought, Humanism, A-theism, etc. is not ONLY about fighting for separation of Church & State -- It's about fighting for our Basic Right to LIVE! -- which means holding those accountable -- who without conscience would let Greed be their "God" AND their Religion. It's all part of the same web -- Interconnected -- The Evil And The Good.
Wall Street made money first by selling predatory loans (designed to fail) to people, then got almost a trillion $ in bailout money from "We the People" -- the taxpapers; then made more money from foreclosing on them & Re-selling the homes--and so far have gotten off "scot-free" with only "slap-on-the-wrist" fines or window-dressing "restrictions." And the unscrupulous lawyers are right there in "bed" with them reaping the profits from "putting 'bandaids'" on those the banks have victimized.
I KNOW -- because I'm fighting against foreclosure Again for My Home & My Life -- for the 6th time in 3 yrs. Again from these Greedmongers!} Also; for additional info. see the 2010 Oscar-winning documentary "Inside Job."]
There has been No REAL Accountability or Restitution from these Conscience-less, Inhuman & Inhumane "creatures." All they care about is Money.
Remember "Watergate" & what "We The People" demanded. Right won out. Nixon resigned & other Perpetrators of the Crimes Against the People Went to JAIL!
Which side are YOU on?

Subject: I’m going to DC to end Too Big to Jail
I wanted to share this letter from Vivian Richardson with you. She is a foreclosure fighter and a member of the Home Defender's league, the leaders of the upcoming Week of Action. She has a really powerful story and she's coming to DC to fight to end Too Big to Jail.
Dear Norma, My name is Vivian Richardson. Aurora Bank stole my home, but I fought back with the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment and the Home Defenders League and won it back. My battle with my lender is familiar to millions of Americans – years of asking for a loan
modification after dealing with layoffs and delayed paychecks on top of countless instances of lost paperwork and unresponsive customer service agents. And then a foreclosure notice after missing one payment by two days. But fighting back with ACCE and HDL, I was able to reverse the foreclosure and win my home back. Millions of Americans are still fighting Wall Street criminals to stop them from stealing their homes or get them back. That’s why I’m joining hundreds of struggling homeowners and foreclosure fighters in the “Bringing Justice to Justice” week of action from May 18-23, to demand an end to “Too Big to Jail” and force the banks to start HELPING those in need instead of PROFITING from them.To pull this off, we need your help. Can you chip in $25 or whatever you can afford to help us end “Too Big to Jail”?
Home Defenders and foreclosure fighters begin arriving in DC this Saturday and we need to hit our goal of $7500 by Friday May 17th
. We’ve been able to secure low-cost places to stay and lots of donations, but we still need to pay for some things like food, water and transportation. We can’t have two systems of Justice in this country: one for the rich and powerful, where Wall Street criminals are actually rewarded for breaking the law with huge bonuses and luxurious salaries, and another for the rest of us.We’ve almost met our fundraising goal. Can you help put us over the top? Chip in $25 or whatever you can today and help make the Week of Action a success!
Wall Street bankers have spent (and are still spending) millions convincing Washington that they are worth
protecting. We’re going to counteract that with the power of hundreds of real people affected by the foreclosure crisis standing on the doorsteps of the Justice Department demanding accountability and an end to Too Big to Jail. The fate of many of those joining me rests on convincing President Obama and his administration to end Too Big to Jail and offer more support to struggling homeowners. The stakes are even higher when you consider the millions of Americans facing foreclosure who can’t join us in Washington. These Wall Street banksters stole many homes, and are still committing crimes. It is time for them to be held accountable.Please contribute now!
