Rule of Law


Cram Down?/! – whiskey tango
foxtrox -over?


So what is Cram Down?


 It’s real name is H.R. 1106: Helping Families
Save Their Homes Act of 2009


This bill as passed by the
House of Representatives allows a Judge to
modify the rights of claim holders with
respect to a claim for a loan originated before the effective date of this Act
and secured by a security interest in the debtor’s principal residence that is
the subject of a foreclosure notice


In other words, a judge can
change the terms of the contract.


Aside from the ‘Moral
Hazard’ implied by  the idea that some in
the ‘entitlement class’ are due a home for free, and ensuring that home prices
will be higher, much higher for everyone else; Cram  Down screams:


The ‘Rule
of Law’ is NO MORE!


And in its place is
the arbitrary and capricious want of man.


In the United States of America
the ‘Rule of Law’ exists no longer.


In our post modern culture,
aside from removing God from the underpinnings of our society, destroying the
rule of law will have the single most deleterious affect we’ve ever known.  For now, we are all cast into a legal
underworld of vagaries where you are no longer bound by social mores, your own
good word or even a legal contract. Instead, you are bound by whatever a judge decides.  


Whatever“, that vacuous anthem of apathy of the new po-mo
generation will soon to visit some manner of fresh hell to us all as mechanism
of business degenerate into a seething morass of confusion, legal
confrontations and pitch battles over what was once clearly recognized as right
and wrong! 


harpies of hell get a 2fer: more social confusion and failing financial institutions


You see, a scheme where Guv’ment
mandated risk, forces banks to loan to those who can’t pay and obliges mortgage
interest rate suppression where the banks make less on the loans that they can
collect, is a recipe for failure. Oh and a certain guarantee that the Freddie
Mac / Fannie Mae cycle of taxpayer theft continues thus indenturing more to the
Plantation of the Welfare State.

    “In a government of laws, the existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.”
