"Two cords of wood"
Back in September, I was asked to give some unusual advice to a client. This woman, a resident of rural Northwestern Maine, wanted to know if she should buy the two cords of wood that she needed to heat her $48,000 home for the winter. ... I had to tell my client that she should not buy the firewood, as I knew that [KeyBank] was planning an eviction within days.
Two cords of wood is around $200. That's life at the margins at Maine.
That Versailles, both legacy parties, our wonderful Democrat Party, our wonderful Democrat President, Barack Obama, our wonderful Republican Senators, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, and our wonderful Democrat Representative, Mike Michaud, did nothing to help this woman -- in fact, through HAMP and by making the big banks bigger, made her situation worse -- is shameful and disgusting. And evil. All of them, every single one of them, individually and severally, are responsible.
