    Nice write up. Thanks.

    Are you aware that the Green Party has a plan to stop foreclosures and evictions? The Greens plan to help the distresed occupants deal with the situation instead of standing by and letting the banks do whatever they want.

    Greens feel that we should put a stop to humans being kicked to the curb.
