    I've read the story and have yet to see a real reason why they would use Wells Fargo.
    You can transfer funds to a credit union just as fast.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Erm, first Engels was German, not Russian. Second, Lenin said that.

    These are both pretty common knowledge.

    I've read this twice and I still do not see the justification for placing money with Wells Fargo. It does not take any longer to put the money in a credit union. Cash is accepted for bail.

    Was Wells Fargo perhaps giving away a toaster with every new account? It would have been as legit of an arguement. I'm going to guess that this was an effort to get Wells Fargo to forgo any charges.

    They sold out their ideals for convenience. Plain and simple.

    The Occupy Whatever movement has officially "jumped the shark".

    Ehh. This particular one has jumped the sharks. If none of the others have done this, then we should not let their actions affect the rest.
