You guys need to get a clue, the Occupiers are a mob of Useful Idiots unwittingly working for people like George Soros.

The enemy of my enemy is NOT my friend, I would have thought a smart bunch like you would have figured this out.

Wow! Squatting in BAC Field Services managed homes....

No more camping out!

Did BAC think of this first? 

Or TD?

And you're an useful idiot working for people like the Koch Brothers, Ruppert Murdoch, etc...

At first I thought your comment was really stupid, but when you dressed it up with that "enemy of my enemy" shit--WOW!  Really impressive.

PS  I didn't junk you.  I get unlimited junks at no cost--and your comment still isn't worth one.

Making a pick set
http://www.instructables.com/id/pocket-lock-pick-set/

ascii...the other white meat. Cut and paste into notepad for formating. lol

----
FIRST OF ALL, YOU NEED A PICK SET. IF YOU KNOW A LOCKSMITH, GET HIM TO MAKE YOU A SET. THIS WILL BE THE BEST POSSIBLE SET FOR YOU TO USE. IF YOU FIND A LOCKSMITH WILLING TO SUPPLY A SET, DON'T GIVE UP HOPE. IT IS POSSIBLE TO MAKE YO UR OWN, IF YOU HAVE ACCESS TO A GRINDER (YOU CAN USE A FILE, BUT I T TAKES FOREVER.)
THE THING YOU NEED IS AN ALLEN WRENCH S ET (VERY SMALL). THESE SHOULD BE SMALL ENOUGH TO FIT INTO THE KEYHOLE SLOT. NOW, BEND THE LONG END OF THE ALLEN WRENCH AT A S LIGHT ANGLE..(NOT 90 DEG.) IT SHOULD LOOK SOMETHING LIKE THIS:
#1 \\ \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ \\\\\\ (THIS IS THE HANDLE \\\ THAT WAS ALREADY \\\ (HERE.) \\\ \\\ \\\
NOW, TAKE YOUR PICK TO A GRINDER OR A FILE AND SMOOTH THE END (#1) UNTIL IT'S ROUNDED SO IT WON'T HAN G INSIDE THE LOCK. TEST YOUR TOOL OUT ON DOORKNOBS AT YOUR HOUSE TO SEE IF IT WILL SLIDE IN AND OUT SMOOTHLY. NOW, THIS IS WHERE THE SCREWDRIVER COMES IN. IS IT SMALL ENOUGH FOR IT AND YOUR PICK TO BE USED IN THE SAME LOCK AT THE SAME TIME, ONE ABOVE THE OT HER ? LETS HOPE SO, BECAUSE THAT'S THE ONLY WAY YOUR GONNA OPEN IT.
IN THE COMING INSTRUCTIONS, PLEASE REFER TO THIS CHART OF THE INTERIOR OF A LOCK:
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\ K # # # # # # \ E # # # # \ Y * * \ H * * * * * * \ O \ L \ E XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\ #= UPPER TUMBLER PIN *= LOWER TUMBLER PIN X= CYLINDER WALL (THIS IS A GREATLY SIMPLIFIED DRAWING) THE OBJECT IS TO PRESS THE PIN UP SO TH AT THE SPACE BETWEEN THE UPPER PIN AND THE LOWER PIN IS LEVEL WI TH THE CYLINDER WALL. NOW, IF YOU PUSH A PIN UP, ITS TENANCY IS T O FALL BACK DOWN, RIGHT ? THAT IS WHERE THE SCREWDRIVER COMES IN. INSERT THE SCREWDRIVER INTO THE SLOT AN D TURN. THIS TENSION WILL KEEP THE "SOLVED" PINS FROM FALLING BAC K DOWN. NOW, WORK FROM THE BACK OF THE LOCK TO THE FRONT, AND WHEN YOU'RE THROUGH..... THERE WILL BE A CLICK, THE SCREWDRIVER WILL TURN FREELY, AND THE DOOR WILL OPEN.

Maybe this will force BoA to hire people to keep watch over the homes in foreclosure.

Here are the specific warnings to BAC "field services" agents: i) Your safety is our primary concern, so do not engage with the protesters;

In the BOA office downtown, the once open counter has just been walled with glasses. BOA is shitting its pants...

So today, you have a choice  of a single share of goldman sachs, one barrel of crude oil or 3 ounces of physical silver? All around $100 in one years time, who wants what?

Its time for a mass walk-away.  Charge all your credit cards to the maximum then leave your house to the bank and walk off in to the sunset.  Fuck BAC and all the rest.

J 457's picture

That's the mindset that caused this economic and housing problem in the first place.  Those that actually own a property typically have a much different opinion.  That is unless you are part of the crowd that decided to buy at the peak in 2006 then take out a HELOC to live a lifestyle you couldn't afford.  Yes, I don't care for BAC either, but I do care about the $$ I'm loosing as my property value goes down because some of my neighbors are deadbeats.

Deo vindice's picture

If there was no credit, what would a house be 'worth'?  About 10 cents on the dollar?

I am a homeowner with no mortgage, but if I wanted to sell and could only sell to those with cash, my house would be worth a fraction of what it is.

It is unrestrained credit that has increased the price (but not the value) of my home.

J 457's picture

I agree with all you wrote, except perhaps the part about unrestrained credit increasing the price but not the value.  That is a more complicated discussion and would take more than a few paragraphs to explain.  One could argue that home values and credit go hand in hand.

Deo vindice's picture

Not sure, but, giving you the beneifit of the doubt, it is possible we may be agreeing on a matter from two different sides of the same question.  However, you are right about one thing; it would take a much more detailed discussion.

I see home 'values' like silver or gold.  Their price has gone up, but has their value?  Not so much. Expressed in terms other than dollars their value  is more or less constant. (Note: I said 'more or less'!)

topcallingtroll's picture

I BOUGHT AT THE PEAK AND PAY MY MORTGAGE ON TIME.

WE ARE ALL FUCKED ANYWAY, DEADBEATS AND RESPONSIBLE ALIKE.

MIGHT AS WELL LEND A HAND TO HELP CRASH THE FUCKER. ITS GOING DOWN ANYWAY AND WE CAN AT LEAST HAVE SOME FUN.

J 457's picture

Yes, I agree there is more pain ahead and all will pay a price.  For me personally, I don't want to contribute to the problem- so I try not to.  Interesting perspective thou, and so typical of what we see every day in the US.  On one hand I can appreciate those that bought at peak, are underwater 50%, and see their money going to BAC every month, along with all the other taxpayer support these banks receive thru FED and MBS purchases- toxic asset transfer.... On the other hand, I know that if we "crash the fuckers" any $$ you may still have left in 401k, IRA, money markets, pensions, or cash, will be worth much less. 

So, yea, either way, prognosis is negative.  The boomers legacy is debt, deficit spending, energy dependency, de-industrialization of USA.  I'm Gen X, and I don't want my legacy to be an outright effort to crash the entire financial system.

MachoMan's picture

As a gen X'er, you're looking at it incorrectly...  your legacy will not be your determination to crash the system, but what foundation is put in place afterward.  We can build another weak foundation or strive for a better one...  No right or wrong answer, and both probably end with the same result, albeit one a little sooner than the other.

We'll probably get to watch our grandkids go through the same thing...  albeit modestly different, but definitely rhyming.

J 457's picture

We're thinking alike here. The entire system needs to be purged, its just a matter of how to do it, and how severe the change must be.  Going back to the stone age barter system is not forward prgress, but the financial and political system must be significantly changed from what it is today.  It may very well take a depression to get back to a starting point and build that strong foundation you speak of.

There are some disillusioned kids on this board.  Fact is most couldn't survive a few days without their dad's credit card, free room and board, subsidized government loans for skool, and their XBox.  They are the group that concerns me most, as they have the same mentality as the boomer generation.  Nothing is free.  Remember it.  Where we're at fault is not affording them the same opportunity of past generations. 

Cathartes Aura's picture

you've got a lot of media memes in your post, I'm afraid.

the "disillusioned kids on this board" is a stinker tho' - how can "they" be simultaneously "playing Xbox in their dad's basement" AND defaulting on their BofA mortgages?

consider that "changing the system" is a massive myth sold to citizens to keep them in a holding pattern while they get thoroughly fleeced BY the system, and then ponder what they'll do with you when you have NO WORTH to them, which is incoming soon.

J 457's picture

No, they are two different groups.  Kids, and deadbeats, that is.  The kids are living in dads basement, and the deadbeats are defaulting after living beyond their means and borrowing what they couldn't ever possibly afford to pay back.  They blame it on "the banks" that "gave them" the money for the new BMW while working at TJMax.  It was never a gift, numbskulls.

Cathartes Aura's picture

there's no reward for letting the media Occupy your mind J.

virtually all of your words are mainstream teevee verbiage. . .

(oh, and by the way, the insult is MOM's basement)

Oh J457, check out this link to Alexa. Look at the "Audience."

Everyone here is an old guy.

Omen IV's picture

457 old old old guy - you need to get life -

the banks committed FRAUD  - end to end  - that is what "cut and paste"  mortgage applications are and synthetic CDO's designed to fail and subsequently shorted in bulk - these practices took a market that would have gone down 20% cyclically to one that went down 50-60% - - at this level the banks deserve NOTHING - especially when it comes to not paying them back and trashing the property to boot  - you had civil disobedience al la 1968 - hell no we wont go - -  

is now  - hell no we wont pay - the kids stopped the draft and then the war in 1970  -  this revolution will happen again and anyone with brains will welcome the coming purge in the system

"I do care about the $$ I'm loosing as my property value goes down because some of my neighbors are deadbeats"

what a fucking NORM you are, 457...

Your house was NEVER worth "$$"...

Now go crank up that rilly rilly kewl Styx song about how "deep inside we're all the saaaame"

and realize that your dick is only "normal-sized" with a slight leftward bent. Sorry for your loss, Drone.

...and it's "LOSING" ya ignorant internet bastard

J 457's picture

Yes, I stand corrected, it is losing.

Homes are worth what price will be paid- market value- you dumb twit. 

You seem frustrated banana, things must not be going your way.

Things that go bump's picture

You seem to forget the simple fact that, while the principal of all those loans was created at the time of loan origination, the interest never was - thus the snooker.  The con is that as much of the interest as possible is actually collected and when the principal can't be paid the property ends up belonging to the banks in foreclosure.   This whole system is designed to blow at regular intervals.  Some blow ups are going to be worse than others, and this one is going to be the mother of all.  When this one is complete the banks will end up owning all of the real property and anything else of value, including your bank accounts, which will go poof. At this point, anybody with any brains can see where this is going and is grabbing anything they can get before the reset when it all begins again.

And when you do leave, turn on every frikkin light in the place including those eight 100 watters in the bathrooms. Turn the thermostat up so the heat never goes off during the winter, or down in the summer so the ac runs fulltime. Turn all faucets on and let them run.

Some neighbors just left their home this past weekend, the house is glowing at night.
