Duke Law: The Bootstrap Trap

The corporate owned media is constantly repeating the mindless mantra that a person’s credit score is so important. That is only true up to a point. It is better to live as frugally as possible and to save up and pay cash for items whenever possible to avoid having to borrow unless absolutely necessary. But you will rarely, if ever, find any mention of this strategy in the major media.

The Bootstrap Trap

By J. Guggenheim

Duke Law Professor Sara Sternberg Greene’s paper The Bootstrap Trap  describes the tragic oppression of consumer credit on low-income households as people strive desperately to become secure and self-sufficient and the limited influence of poverty law. Professor Sternberg Greene, a practicing sociologist, evaluates the disturbing impact of credit scores on low-income consumers’ lives- that are also applicable to the middle class living paycheck-to-paycheck.

“…..respondents referred to their credit reports or scores as “the most important thing in my life, right now, well besides my babies,” as “that darned thing that is destroying my life,” and as “my ticket to good neighborhoods and good schools for my kids.” Many respondents believed that a “good” credit score was the key to financial stability.”-Greene

“One respondent, Maria, told a story about a friend who was able to improve his score.  She said…

Phil Murphy, a former banker with a double-digit lead in New Jersey’s race for governor, has made a state-owned bank a centerpiece of his platform.

Regulation Is Killing Community Banks – Public Banks Can Revive Them — WEB OF DEBT BLOG

Crushing regulations are driving small banks to sell out to the megabanks, a consolidation process that appears to be intentional. Publicly-owned banks can help avoid that trend and keep credit flowing in local economies. At his confirmation hearing in January 2017, Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin said, “regulation is killing community banks.” If the process is […]

NY Times: Student Debt Getting Wiped Out by Fraudulent Claims of Securitization

Livinglies's Weblog

So here is an example of why you need to send a DVL (Debt Validation Letter).

It turns out that mainstream media and the court system are much more willing to get into bank fraud as to students than they were when it came to homeowners. The facts are the same.

“Somewhere along the line” the debt was severed from any entity answering to the description of a creditor. Thus the “servicer” for the “trust” (debt collectors, because they are not the owners of the debt) derives its powers, authority and obligations from an entity that does NOT own the loan.

The Habitat for Humanity Scam – Disguised as a charity.

That is outrageous that Habitat for Humanity would take advantage of low income people like this. Like most people I had no idea that this was going on. Thank you very much for sharing.

Donation_Scam

It’s been a awhile since i posted anything, mainly because I was busy and as real life has a habit of doing, forces you to deal with it.  While I was dealing with life, I had spoken with a neighbor who asked that I sit in with a group of neighbors on the street to hear their story.   The people involved are homeowners who received their homes via Habitat for Humanity.

I’ve always thought of Habitat for Humanity as a good charity who helps people get a home, that they otherwise wouldn’t get.  And that was as a far I as I saw it.   I never went through the process they have, and didn’t dig much into how they operate. I assumed like most that this charity was good and my thoughts never went past that.

So I went and sat with the ten families on my street who…
