    Police in Baltimore today made what is believed to be the first arrest in a civil disobedience program aimed at supporting homeowners who refuse to vacate their foreclosed homes.

    An activist with ACORN — the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now — faces criminal charges after breaking into a home in southeast Baltimore on Thursday to protest the foreclosure crisis sweeping the country.

    "This is our house now," ACORN member Louis Beverly reportedly said after cutting a lock with bolt cutters at the home.

    So on one side of the revolution we have homeless people trying to stay as squatters in their former homes, and risking arrest to do it.

    On the other side we have a bunch of asses that post messages on the internet warning of a revolution that will destroy Obama and his followers.

    Methinks the homeless are going to win this one.

    I was thinking about posting, was this some one the President knows from his community organizing days, but I decided against it.

    Sure a few million homeless are going to beat the remaining 200 Plus million of us.

    Me thinks not.

    You know.....I kinda see the point, because did you realize that 40 percent of the people that are foreclosed upon are RENTERS? They don't even own the freaking property, it's the dirtbag owners who are missing the payments.

    Solution?

    Lock up the owners that have let their properties fall into arrears, and tell the renters to pay their rent directly to the mortgage holder.

    It will be thrown out of court on something stupid you watch! I bet though if it was me who did that, I wouldn't be out on the streets but in jail.
