‘Occupy Petaluma' campaign catches on - Honestly, if you think about it who does a foreclosure benefit?  Some foreclosures have to happen but most are people that want to pay the bills.  Millions of foreclosures don't make sense.  It helps the bankers but not the community, not the people and not the ones being foreclosed on.  Come to reality you lose your job and it takes you six months to find a new one.  Are you willing to refinance or work something with a bank, yes.  The banks aren't even if you have the money.  They will want 1000s if not more in what they call legal fees, over what you owe and want it now.  All for passing that paper across the hall.  They know the people were down and out now they want miracles out of those same people.  It is sad what the system does to those that land up in troubled times.

Pregnant Occupy Protester Miscarries After Being Beaten and Sprayed by Police - well actually I've seen more then one post from different woman stating that this happened.  I hope they are complete bad myths in these cases!  However, as I stated in earlier comments the use of force that has been used  by some officers this could have happened or still could.  Something to think about!  I really hope it hasn't and it doesn't happen.  The next time an officer has riot gear on and they are angry and considering hitting someone that is not posing a threat, I hope they think about this.
