BAC is just one part of that huge economic drain-team of welfare dependants hiding behind and protected by the false label of capitalism.

Do not pay your mortgage! Instead invest in the metals Siver, Gold, Brass, and Lead (the last 2 come together in a convient package).

I may have sped-read too fast....what number was this under:

"Bank of America is shifting derivatives in its Merrill investment banking unit to its depository arm, which has access to the Fed discount window and is protected by the FDIC."

Weeeee, now we all get to pay for the $79 trillion of derivatives/gambling debts/fraud.  Isn't that awesome? 

What this means for you is that when Europe finally implodes and banks fail, U.S. taxpayers will hold the bag for trillions in CDS insurance contracts sold by Bank of America and JP Morgan.

Hmm....79 trillion divided by 300 million citizens.....$263,333 (plus compounding interest - mmmmm)....yea, you're all f'd...for at least the next 10 generations.  Okay, I was being an're never paying that back (not that it was ever yours to ever repay, but they'll make you do so)!  EVER!  What a thought process that this all is....each newborn kid is/will be immediately indebted for life. Bwah-ha-ha-ha!

And you thought that transferring your slave wages to a credit union was going to save you? HA!

...and becuase you need this...this man is MY fucking prophet!

This is horrible, truly horrible.  When Europe implodes, it will definitely take down the US.

Semi OT, speaking of OWS, Peter Schiff went down to talk with them...

Folks like Peter Schiff, Brandon Smith and others have the most common sense solutions to change the system... Stop participating in it! It's very simple; If you don't like BoA, switch to a credit union or a small local bank... If you don't want to be in debt servitude for the rest of your life because of student loans that benefit Wall Street, go to school overseas where education is vastly cheaper.

Thinking radically different about student loans, college, or even where you bank doesn't require a ton of effort. The establishment tries to convince you that the only solutions out there are the ones they offer. That's nonsense. If you want to make the corrupt establishment obsolete, turn your back on their corrupt system altogether and create your own.

The only way to win is to refuse to play...

Sorry ResFam, there is NO escape.  Not when BOA's gambling debts have been shifted to the depository arm, guaranteed by both the Federal Reserve and the FDIC, to the tune of 79 trill.  Going to a credit union is a 'feel-good' solution.  it'll give you the sensation the you're keeping some of of that fiat currency to yourself while it's value plummets further.

Fair enough... Then move your accounts overseas.  Buy gold or silver.  Buy hard assets.  The sentiment stands.

"Follow the trail people. House of Rothschild ----- George Soros ------ Open Society Foundation -------- Tides Foundation ------- Adbusters ------------- Occupy Wall Street. There you have it. PRS ­ Problem - Reaction ­ Solution.

Now, what is this REALLY all about? Could the ultimate goal of these Satanic human pieces of excrement (AKA the Global Elite) be Martial Law imposed in every U.S. City leading then to the total financial collapse of the U.S. economy following the tried and true model of the Bolshevik (Rothschild-sponsored) Revolution of 1917?"

Very possible.  When disinfo campaigns and market pumping no longer pacify the masses, then martial law and tyranny rule.

You getting a frontrow view, sheeples. Ignore it at your own peril. Go long and prosper on bogus financial, broke institutions. Only a moron will not predict the result.  This game has become the dual of good verses evil. Evil has the upward bias. technicals of fraudulent fundamentals backs up my thesis.

Let's break the government's hold on the economy and then banks will have to earn their living honestly.

Separate the economy from the state.

You're gonna have to get rid of the IRS first. As long as they are able to shake-down employers and merchants, there is no mechanism for relief.

STOP STOP with the disinformation. OWS is NOT protesting against banks. They are campaigning for obama, NWO and socialism.

How many OWS outfits have bank accounts and how many are forming corporations

They are protesting against the banks and the socialism that allows them to live and steal.  I'm not sure what kind of nonsense you are trying to spread.

That would explain all the "End the Fed" and Ron Paul posters at the NYC #OWS protest I checked out on Saturday. The *only* campaign related posters were the Ron Paul people....

Quit making up bullshit and spewing it here.

vampire squid...coined by Matt Taibbi....meaning a creature that wraps its tentacles around society and sucks out the lifes blood (or savings). I would say that's a pretty good description of the TBTF banks.  And, even thought the OWS incident in Oakland was unique, rare and possibly caused outside troublemakers, I think it's a sign of things to come.  As our President incites a class war and divides the population, nutballs will follow his example and use it to justify extreme actions. It will have a bad outcome except for one thing:  it will eventually change the way the TBTF banks do business, if not break them up.  Note to Jaime Dimon and the rest of the TBTF CEO's:  find a safe island to retire too and keep the jet engines idling.
