Man Bulldozes Home to Spite Bank - Moscow, ID

It just warms the cockles to see folks finally waking up and fighting back doesn't it?

From the article at WLWT:
Hoskins said he's been in a struggle with RiverHills Bank over his Clermont County home for nearly a decade, a struggle that was coming to an end as the bank began foreclosure proceedings on his $350,000 home.

"When I see I owe $160,000 on a home valued at $350,000, and someone decides they want to take it – no, I wasn't going to stand for that, so I took it down," Hoskins said.


"The average homeowner that can't afford an attorney or can fight as long as we have, they don't stand a chance," he said.

Hoskins said he'd gotten a $170,000 offer from someone to pay off the house, but the bank refused, saying they could get more from selling it in foreclosure.

So, he went and got a bulldozer, and took care of the problem. He bloody well bulldozed his home, and he says he's considering doing the same to the business the bank is going after as well.

Even better, check out the Poll on the left side of the page....

Oops, 77% of almost 10,000 people say "Good for Him". That's not a good sign for the jackasses in power now is it? Even more interesting, 22% is approximately the number of people that currently believe that the Government is acting with Consent of the Governed. Uh oh.

From the link above:
The founding document of the United States, the Declaration of Independence, states that governments derive “their just powers from the consent of the governed.” Today, however, just 21% of voters nationwide believe that the federal government enjoys the consent of the governed.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 61% disagree and say the government does not have the necessary consent. Eighteen percent (18%) of voters are not sure.

However, 63% of the Political Class think the government has the consent of the governed, but only six percent (6%) of those with Mainstream views agree.

Seventy-one percent (71%) of all voters now view the federal government as a special interest group, and 70% believe that the government and big business typically work together in ways that hurt consumers and investors.

That helps explain why 75% of voters are angry at the policies of the federal government, and 63% say it would be better for the country if most members of Congress are defeated this November. Just 27% believe their own representative in Congress is the best person for the job.

LISTEN UP FRAUDSTERS (formerly known as Congress, Banks and Wall Street), WE'RE MAD AS HELL AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY MORE!

People know when they're getting screwed. They know more and more each day how it feels to be powerless as the "protected class" takes what they want from the people's hard earned savings.

And the people's response?
