    Governor Deval Patrick, The State House 24 Beacon Street Boston, Massachusetts  02133   Dear Governor Patrick, It’s a rainy Friday afternoon here so I thought I would drop a line. Since you are taking requests , I  too would like to be considered for an appointment  to the United States Senate. I understand that I was [...]

    Kinda off topic but not really.
    I went on a gun nut neighbor’s Facebook timeline the other day. I was looking for the entry wherein he bragged about owning a French military boozoka. I had defriended him the day of the Tuscon shooting because I thought an assault on two Federal officers was beyond the pale. Little did I know there is a whiter shade of pale.
    Any how, you can still see a person’s timeline even if they are not a friend. He had deleted most of his damaging stuff, but I noticed that he had what purported to be a privacy notice to all, to the effect that if you did not have his permission to see his timeline you were violating his privacy . I just had to laugh at the gun nut logic that you belong to a social media site but then expect privacy from not only the site but every one else.
    BTW what’s Instagram or even Flickr. I can’t keep up with all the crazy social media stuff that is supposed to keep us “connected” in our isolation.

    Since the American military admires all things about the Israeli military , is there any doubt in anyone’s mind that our troops are likely acting with the a similar disregard to the people of Afghanistan? Recent report of three children killed while combing a field for fuel probably is not an isolated incident. We have [...]

    The violence we rain down on the people of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Libya cannot be separated from the violence that is visited upon us by our citizens. You cannot grow up in the U.S. without having been taught and having learned the false lesson that America believes some people are more worthy, more valuable than [...]

    It took me living through 4 hurricanes to buy the generator. I never lost power in any one of them but felt great with my generator which I have lent out to others less fortunate. But after the 4 I lived through, I swear I had PTSD which took years to overcome. Finally stopped being [...]

    Don’t knock those reverse jinxes. It’s how I get through Hurricane Season in Central Florida. My last big purchase was a generator and I have not seen a storm since. Hope your cable stays [...]

    Thankfully O is speaking fast. And being specific. Romney went soft in 1st answer. No zingers tonight I guess.

  • Well, I’m taking a break from writing a motion concerning a Citimortgage robosigned assignment that occurred in 2011, long after the problems were supposed to have been corrected.
    You give too much credit to Scott Brown, that he did not “know” what was going on. If he was the title attorney, and he looked at the LPS documents, surely he would have seen the same names coming up as vice president for this corporation and vice president for that corporation. Perhaps he would have noticed that there was a Florida vice president for a Virginia corporation or that the signatures of the witnesses were identical on loan after loan. If he was the closing attorney examining HUD 1 statements, surely he would have been able to look at the amount of the loan compared to the income proven or stated by the borrower and seen that standards of lending were not being met.
    I am certain, to an attorney that every opposing counsel I meet knows that the files contain fraudulent documents but their attitude is “prove it” or “good luck finding a judge who will actually cares.”
    So far, the Banks counsels have been winning those battles.

    We’ve seen a couple instances over the past few days of chickens coming home to roost. In Florida, the Obama campaign is struggling to find their voters after years of foreclosures

    The foreclosure crisis has been devastating and so unnecessary. Cramdown should have been allowed years ago instead of the faux HAMP modifications which as Barofsky confirms were for and by the banks. Yeah, Obama can go pound sand for my vote, ain’t gonna happen.

    The post is a gratuitous smear, not the woman’s allegations. George Zimmerman is likely facing a conviction and a jail sentence which is I assume the author’s hope. Why pile on with an uncharged allegation? If the woman’s allegations are credible to law enforcement and the acts occurred when she was under 12, then if [...]

    Then you know the nightmare that occurs when you are wrongfully accused and the utter injustice of a wrongful conviction. Allegations of sexual abuse and pretrial publicity of the same are far more damaging than most any other charge. That genie cannot be put back into the bottle. I don’t care how many times you [...]

    And the pretrial demonization here of George Zimmerman continues. Other experienced observers have found the witness not credible. As a former prosecutor, I have prosecuted child sexual abuse cases, the youngest being 2 years old. I have prosecuted sexual assault cases. As an attorney in private practice who occasionally defends people accused, I have defended a [...]
