Call Third Way on their plan to overturn four centuries of property law so the banksters can keep stealing homes
After the banksters lost the Ibanez decision, they had their lackeys at Third Way plan to rewrite the rules. Lose at the state level? Fine! Have the Congress you own federalize the issue, and get away clean. Oh, and Bill Daley is on their board. Read the whole horrible post at Yves place, and then give Third Way a call:
1025 Connecticut Ave. NW, Suite 501
Washington, DC 20036
(202) 384 1700
(202) 775 0430 (fax)
add a “1? “2? “4? to the 1700 to get a real voice.
NOTE Yves remarks:
Establishment Republicans would also be wise to give this proposal a wide berth. If you want to recruit for the Tea Party, you could hardly find a better tool that to have the Federal government interfere with local courts on a matter as important to most Americans as their homes
Look! Over there! Sarah Palin!

In short, this seems like an admission by the Third Way that the shitpile remains a serious problem. But also an attempt to preempt processes already underway to solve the shitpile. Not to mention eliminate legal recourse for many of the people who have been wronged here.
Update: The more I think about this paper, the more it seems like Third Way is saying, “Congress, we’ve had a major setback in the courts. Can you please make sure to 1) limit access to the courts and 2) preventing any more of these judgments that will reveal just how deep the shitpile really is?”
If the banksters -- even after trillions in bailouts -- were still solvent, would they even have to do this? A question that answers itself, once asked. Either that, or they're just openly looting, "because they can."
