Homeowners across the country are fighting to regain control over their own lives and their own homes. Many homeowners have become involved with in the legislative process and some grass roots organizations have hosted conferences - for the homeowners. On October 11, 2008 Texas homeowners from all over the state met in Houston to talk about their homes, their rights and their lives. Despite the fact that hurricane Ike had knocked out power lines, collapsed houses, punctured holes in roofs, uprooted trees and otherwise disrupted lives leaving many without electricity and internet connectivity for several weeks, the Texas folks still managed to get together and talk about their problems and how they wanted to have them solved.
"On the Commons" drops in for a little while and eavesdrop on some of the conversations that took place. We'll hear about a partial list of the issues homeowners all over the country face and listen to some of the ideas they have of how to fix things.
