On a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

On a long enough timeline, Eric PlaceHolder does something?

Guarantee you that Jamie Dimon is behind whatever moves come next. That Jamie Dimon; some say he's sharp. I say I'll outperform his corrupt ass any day of the week if given half the inside information he gets from his peeps (e.g. The Bernank).

I sure that you're wrong about the Jamie Dimon conspiracy theory.  That being said, it is about time for Bank of America to visit the proctologist.  The surprising finding will be that it is all ass and no head.

Just how are you associating Dimon with BOA?

Do tell.

I'm associating Jamie by way of the fact that he's got an inside track on major happenings, seemingly before anyone else who is an "investor" knows.

A major happening would be severe carnage at BofA, an institution holding 40% of Americans' savings and cash equivalent deposits.

The impetus of my emphasis wasn't as literate as it should have been in my original post.

Ahhhh, and here I was thinking you had your criminals confused.

I'm sure you're right that JPM is the govt's favorite bank excepting the fed of course.

So what does he know do you think?

This is a good point, AS.

Eric Placeholder has been a major cock blocker for anyone seeking just restitution from the playas and TBTF inner sanctum on Wall Street, and his cock blocking ways will probably continue unless Obama decides he needs some very major, very visible sacraficial lambs to get re-elected (and this presumes Obama has control over those playas, when the reverse is more likely the case).

I am glad to see his nickname catching traction, props.  I got that from the Washington CityPaper which is politically barely to the right of the Village Voice.

You can see downthread how they ARE going to go after WFC and BAC for the fact that blacks DEFAULTED on their loans.  When it is white borrowers, it's NINJA and deadbeats that these banks falsified shit- it's all on the borrowers.  When it's black borrowers, it  beez scriminashuns that they DIDN'T lend and then scriminashuns when they DID lend and had to NINJA the docs to make the loan happen.  And if FICO (which doesn't know race) or even traffic cameras are catching blacks with lower scores and higher ticket rates, then they beez rayciss too.

Every single failure of any black is the fault of YT scriminashuns.  It's a civil rights case that broke blacks that shouldn't have been lent to defaulted on subprime loans.  Just like it was a civil rights case that the banks refused to lend to people with documented failures to repay credit.

BAC should go to 8.80, low 8-handle (maybe 8.20).  If this does NOT hold the decline, 6.80 to 7.05/10 area will attract buyers.  Moynihan has only about 6-9, maybe 12-15 months to really convince the Street, before pressure from large shareholders demand the Board replace him. He will become the "scapegoat" and will resign for "personal reasons" (the Board will give him a 8-10MM retirement package).  Here is the interesting part.  We believe Sally Krawcheck will replace Moynihan (and currently, is quietly being groomed or moved around for such possibility).  New developments shall begin to unfold itself by year-end (maybe even within the next few months sooner).

Yeah. It's time for another big feed. The Bear and Lehman just exited from the hindquarters of the great New York Anaconda. After BOA, I see Morgan Stanley as next on the buffet, and then probably Wells. I hope there are some Japanese directors still on their feet despite radiation poisoning to film the last epic, The Morgue meets the Squid. Guaranteed to be a thrilla.

How bad can it be when nobody goes to prison?  The fine will be approximately 1/5 of the crime, only to be passed on to the public (again) through more gov't tolerated/sponsored shenanigans.  Party on right?

Other banks with better political connections are salivating and dividing up the "good" assets and divisions as we speak.  The "bad" assets will be bought by the government.  Easy fix

The plan is already set in stone; JPM and GS divide up the good assets; the public will eat the trillions in liability/toxic assets.  Charlotte NC based companies are not in the proper loop.

Seize, Liquidate and Revoke all TBTF banks' charters

Never again will the criminal syndicate be allowed to usurp the labor of hardworking Americans to swindle profit.

Once these banks are removed from existence a new banking system will take its place that rewards investors that choose to save.

The Federal Reserve will only exist as a check clearing agency and the US Treasury will guarantee all deposits redeemable in Gold or Silver.

That will go along way to reviving the American economy and will protect both investors and consumers better than any central planning agency

Gold & Silver have a vast history (thousands of years) preceeding the Bank of England and the American Revolution.

Hard money never really had its chance in the US. The first central bank was established only a few short years after the signing of the Constitution.

In real terms, US currency never lost its purchasing power (even gained) up until the creation of the Federal Reserve due to the severe bouts deflation that occured during the 18th century. Gold & Silver were largely responsible for this.

everyone knows that, as well as the history of jiggering with the G/S ratio to move flows of metal, the Sterling Bill, and the history of debasement and tokenization/demonetization even in pure metals standards.

The point really is that the banking system of usury seems inexorable.  It almost requires a religious prohibition to stop it.
