    I don't see how that is ironic at all. These people aren't lifestylists.

    Hopefully Wells Fargo will deduct the cost of replacing the vandalism OWS did to their Oakland branch from the account. At least someone who has been economically trashed by this group of loud-mouthed nere'do-wells over the past weeks will get restitution.

    I think they should blow their wad on bus tickets, to Washington, DC.

    As for the their use of a bank? Not every place has an available credit union, and many of those credit unions are kinda closed off to the general public...

    Funny you should say that. Occupy Wall Street is doing just that....a group left for Washington, DC a few days ago...24 of them, expecting it to take 18 days. They hope to pick up more on the way -- much like Forrest Gump.

    Hurray for them! Shoulda' started there!

    both times it happened to me, I had funds in my account to cover the amount of the check. they held it anyway until it cleared.

    As have I, although I have never had a hold placed on cash deposited.

    The Occupy DC folks around the corner in MacPherson Square just staged a march down K Street, showing the strength of the silent majority of 99 percent of America. This is the parade, as seen from my office window:



    Really, that was the whole thing. Capitol Hill and the White House are where these guys should be protesting, since it’s government that created the problems they’re complaining about (assuming anyone can tell exactly what it is they’re saying)....
