    You see this is the perplexing that hits Americans and you're reaction is completely classic. The idea of working people getting assistance from the government with their mortgages so they don't lose their homes is unimaginable. That conservative governments in Britain do stuff like this is unthinkable. Yet it exists and people like yourself will almost never be able to find out about this.

    The fact you were able to find out about it and see your reaction to it is a rare treat and I hope that people will pay very close attention to your post, because your reaction is basically a classic reaction of how Americans react in amazement and bewilderment at the fact that this information has been withheld from them. You didn't know today, that is clear from your remarks. Do you realize if we could get this information to enough people like yourself we would change America. But we can't get this information to enough people like yourself.

    There is no vehicle to do it in the for profit media so we are down to this Daily Kos diary wherein not that many people will read your remarks. In fact the whole diary is likely to get under 2,000 views. Therefore we can't get the word out about this, so we need your help and the help of everyone reading this to speak out about what it is you saw today happening on this diary. To start writing diaries yourself about this. To speak out in the letters to the editor of your local paper. To call in to local radio shows and tell them what you've seen happen on this diary. You are seeing people change. Your seeing lives change.  If we can get this information to enough people America will change in election year. The question is will you help us get the word out please. Thanks.

    sig...You just ran into a hardcore progressive who's just another working stiff with an MBA degree & therefore a vociferous labor union supporter [smile]
