    that belie a misunderstanding of the mortgage origination and securitization process, and I was trying to educate. I sense that you would prefer not to hear any information that don't fit neatly into your pre-formed opinions. Fine with me.

      community. People (real people) are getting locked out of their homes and there are questions (real questions) about the legality of the process.

      I see you and others in the banking industry (which I worked in for a number of years) saying that we have to let the process continue because it is just one or two people with the problem.

      The problem with that is that to me (a Progressive) one person being thrown out of their house illegally is bad. I do not see the value in letting the bankers (if you prefer that term) off the hook by saying it is just a matter of a delay.

      In Wisconsin being homeless and living in your car can kill you.

        "by accident" because they can recoup is about the same as saying it's okay to beat up one person because you only did it once and they'll recover in the hospital.

        It's illegal to steal someone else's property, even when you've signed your own paperwork claiming you own it.

        Hence, a crime is being committed, and a "handful" is no excuse for even one.
