Banks used to be a place that housed money, PM's, and wealth.

Now they house lies, deceit, two sets of books, and satanic policy objectives.  Rape the public at any and all cost.  Nice gig.  Quite the transformation.  Why we even allow them to stay open, let alone dominate gov't policy, makes me wonder.

You'll have to fill me in on when Banks were the former.

I am starting to believe that Countrywide was a mafia run operation, or they at least had their hands in it.  There is a whole website devoted to exposing this and other crimes and financial terrorism:

Banks used to be a tool for business. Now, business is a tool for banks.

It's more like 1100 ounces if valued at the time he was fired rather than today.

S&P trading above 1200 - also bullish for the market. CNBC anchors must be creaming themselves on air at this. Meanwhile, Cramericans who followed advice to go to cash or short on Monday at S&P 1140 scratch their heads at the 60 point hole they now find themselves in.

For once they are having to pay for the truth being revealed as they tried to stop it.


Let's calculate - I wonder how many trillions they would have to pay for all the lies they have told, instead of the truth?


Everything about that bank is lies.

that calculation is exactly why they will continue to punish and threaten whistle blowing.  It is better to take a small chance on a relatively small settlement or fine than it would be to let all the secrets out.  The die is cast.  They are in survival mode and merely calculating the least amount of loss.

No. Corporate welfare comes first. Actually HUD just back-pedaled and decided not to kick her out. Probably figured by the time they forged all of her docs she'd be dead anyway.

I don't know about that one. From observations I don't think anything deters them. You can lock them up after you've caught them, but that's not detering them it's taking them out of circulation. Many (most?) when released from custody go right back to doing what they did before, if not worse.

Most criminality is in the blood, and there it remains.

Laws make otherwise normally law abiding citizens, criminals.


All a lock does is keep an honest man, honest.

Yeah, can you imagine what his duties might be?

  • make coffee
  • empty trash (after its been shredded)
  • clean toilets

I am not a vindictive guy, but were I BAC's CEO, I'd make the dude an offer - a couple of million should get him to go away forever.  I simply cannot imagine him coming back into the "team."  Also, if he even spent a minute watching porn or reading ZH, they'd fire him for cause.

Never quit Tyler

The world needs you.

Prosecuting CountryWide for fraud would be like shooting fish in a barrel.  But it probably won't be done because it would undermine confidence.


Will they still be concerned about undermining confidence when there is no trust in the system because it didn't correct abuses?

Do TPTB not understand what happens in a credit based system when there is no trust at all in institutions and no assurance that bad behavior will be stopped?
