The Occupiers said, “This is not a loss but a shot across the bow of the Ashtabula foreclosure racket.”
Wow….This is what community looks like!

I would be LIVID if my judge refused to take calls regarding my case!
Is that Justice? Is that fair?
Is it even Legal? Any Legalista’s out there have the answer?
This came to me from an Occupy Cleveland-er. It breaks my heart.
It’s a real sign of how much our system is broken when a family can be evicted from their family home of 40 years just before Christmas with an appeal still waiting to be heard. One judge is on vacation, one refusing to take calls, and neither willing to let the eviction be part of a moratorium that starts in 2 business days. It almost seems like they’re doing everything they can to take property away from homeowners. The banks got a bailout with our tax dollars, but they systematically refuse to work with us to let us stay in our homes.
What happened here? These are not numbers slipping through the cracks, these are PEOPLE. Living in the home that has been in their family for over 35 years.
All she is asking for is someone in the courts to examine the open appeal. What benefit is there for Orwell, Judge Vettel, Judge Yost, or even Highway Patrol to evict this family 2 days before the moratorium begins.
Do we live in a country which is ok with evicting a family of four from their family home while they still have an open case appeal?

Brian Henson directs his late father’s creations in the Charles Dickens classic, the best known (and most oft-filmed) Christmas story of all time. Michael Caine plays the old miser Scrooge with Kermit as his long-suffering but ever-hopeful employee Bob Cratchit, Miss Piggy as Cratchit’s wife, and a host of Muppets (including the Great Gonzo as an unlikely Charles Dickens) taking other primary roles in this bright, playful adaptation of the somber tale. Or at least it starts brightly enough–the anarchic humor soon settles into mirthful memories and a sense of melancholy as the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future take Scrooge on a journey of his lonely, wasted life. Michael Caine makes a wonderful Scrooge, delightfully rediscovering the meaning of life as fantastic creations from Henson’s Creature Shop (developed specially for this film) take the reins as the three ghosts. While the odd mix of offbeat humor and somber drama undercuts the power of Dickens’s drama, this kid-friendly retelling makes an excellent family drama that adults and children alike can enjoy. –Sean Axmaker
