    these crooked bastards never stop

    personally, I think these banks should have been broken up into 20 or so regional banks during the bailout

    Go Warren!

    I agree 100%. That fucking Wall Street is ruining this great country with all their greed. Yes to Elizabeth Warren, no to the hapless Hillary ho.

    The result from this action will help some people who believe we are not "controlled" by xxxxxx banks wake up.

    LOL! Serves 'em and Fauxcahontas right. The banks have a right to withhold as well as to contribute, and - like it or not - they're perfectly justified in protecting their interests, just as anyone else would be. Warren's just another Dem-opportunist exploiting what she and her followers persist in calling "class warfare."

    ^^

    yep, and the banks have a right to go insolvent and out of business due to their sheer stupidity and greed like Lehman did because Paulson and Geithner had a hard-on for them

    bailing out the banks in 07/08 was akin to bailing out the Teamsters and the AFL/CIO in the 70's

    I would break up Wells, Chase, BofA, CITI into 20 banks - fuck em

    Don't forget Goldman Sachs, probably the worst of the worst. Goldman actually fucked an entire country, Greece, by hiding their debts from EU by setting up off balance sheet derivatives. (Though it was the cowardly Greek pols that ran up the debt to buy votes.)

    There's nothing wrong, per se, with banks. But mega, too-big-to-fail banks are monsterous, horrible, and inherently opposed to customer service and safe banking practices. Like others have said here, no one is asking for ma-and-pa credit unions only, but reasonably sized regional banks are a reasonable alternative to the mega banks. The sun never sets on Citi. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Break 'em up and bust 'em!

    I look at Goldman differently than Chase and Wells.

    Chase fucks over people with checking accounts and car loans and Goldman fucks over entire countries (not that Chase and CITI don't also) but Goldman has no consumer banking

    and Hilary's ex-Goldman asshole son-in-law got his shitty hedge fund destroyed with his Greek bond trading
