It would seem to me, that if I was near to losing my home due to forclosure, I would not be protesting in Washington D.C. Instead, I would probably be spending the day working in order to make money to actually pay my mortgage. I might even get another job so that I can assure that I have enough money to pay the mortgage that I promised to pay.

But yet, there seems to be a growing sentiment in this nation that once you have access to a thing, that you are now entitled to have that thing forever. Home ownership seems to be the latest "right" on the move. Other liberal "rights" include food, health insurance, internet, air free of cigarette smoke, government handouts, employers submissive to employee demands, etc, etc.
Hey, people!!! As long as you are paying the bank or financial institution a morttgage each month for that home you live in that bank or financial institution OWNS your home. Not you.
Maybe you should have signed a better mortgage deal instead of spending the day protesting?
