There it is.  ZH knew long ago that the chairsatan would get a sacrafice and BAC would be the first to go to the alter.

Once they pump this CDS past 400 bp, I would expect a stock halt and an "announcement."  At least, I hope so...

Goodbye my credit card debt because no way I'm paying 100c on the dollar for that shit when they die. I'll offer 15c on the dollar to whoever absorbs their rotting corpse as a one time only take it or leave it mofos deal.

so you demand that someone else shall pay YOUR debt that you voluntarily incurred for YOUR own spending purpose? You are no better than the evil bankers that you blame. likely you are much worse. A man who doesn't honor his debt is a coward, a cheater and a parasite and will sooner or later get what he deserves. what goes around comes around.

Are you retarded or something? That's my entire point. NOBODY else is paying that debt if BAC goes under. The debt will get sold to some vulture who will try to collect 100c on the dollar for debt they paid 7c for. Put down the beer, turn off Jersey Shore and start using your brain.

You think you got problems, I went long BAC at $7.37 to prove to these ignorant bitchaez that that's how you make money; by buying dips. Not too wonderful, so far.

I will take to the streets hopefully among the rest of the sleepy americans if Tarp 2 (or are we at three now, a couple deep already) is announced.  This IMO will be the straw that broke the camels back.  We simply cannot stand for this bullshit any longer.  We are bringing the future of our country to collapse to support the elite who caused this mess.  Long pitchforks and ready to take our country back.  Whose gonna join me?


I am particularly appalled that FNM and FRE are now preparing to sell foreclosed rez re to the investment banks and REIT's at pennies on the dollar as opposed to allowing real price discovery so that the responsible in this country can build their own enterprises buy buying the stuff and providing shelter for our neighbors in the time of need.  All to support rental prices for the haves at the expense of the have nots.  All to hold rents at the manipulated market rates holding downt the entrepreneurs among us.  I am getting sick watching the crony capitalism unfold.  Absolutely sickening.

Prostitutes Flood Vallejo After City Slashes Police

When Ruth Rooney moved in 2005 to a two-bedroom house in Vallejo,California, near Napa Valley’s famed wineries, the historic St. Vincent’s Hill neighborhood attracted young professionals and there were few vacancies.

Things began to change in 2008 after Vallejo, a city of about 116,000 that had lost its biggest employer, the U.S. Navy’s Mare Island shipyard, filed for bankruptcy, said Rooney, a 54-year-old marketing consultant.

“I see prostitutes, pimps and drug dealers out my front window,” Rooney said in a telephone interview Aug. 5. “There’s two on the corner right now.” Her property value has dropped 70 percent in six years, she said.

Vallejo’s experience comes as Central Falls, Rhode Island, proposes $5.6 million in budget cuts after seeking Chapter 9 protection this month and Jefferson County, Alabama, negotiates with creditors to avoid what would be the biggest government filing in U.S. history. There have been five municipal bankruptcies this year, compared with six in 2010, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Question is if BAC is enough or if Citi has to go to the altar as well.  And then (why stop there?) maybe a trifecta with Dexia being led to the chopping block for the Euro-sacrifice.
