    That's a question that opens another whole can of worms. I argued as to why it's stupid to run any customer off but the banks didn't create record profits in such a short time with all of these small fee's.

    The reasons for how all these record profits were made is why people are protesting.

    Yea, they thrived alright, with a huge handout from the Government, without which they would have gone under. Since I am a taxpayer, that's money out of MY pocket, and you don't call that redistribution of wealth?

    Running to the government "save me, save me" is grown up? If you make bad decisions and fail, what do you do as a grown up? You take your lumps and move on. Yes, many of these protestors have some very immature demands. It's far easier for me to overlook immature demands than ones that create havoc on the economy.

    Heck...he probably earns enough to provide for a family. He grows out of the 'evil corproate' mantra and recognizes who provides opportunites for growth and success...heck...he probably BECOMES part of those corporations in some capacity.
    Yes, but who is going to teach the banks?

    Discount it if you will, but people are starting to get very upset with banks and their underhanded dealings.
    It's not that they are even underhanded, they really aren't in theory. There is nothing wrong with providing a service and charging people to use it. The problem is in the fact that many of these banks have stockholders they must account to. Again though, there is nothing inherently wrong there either.

    But these big banks are expected to bring in more and more every year. There comes a point where you've sucked everything dry and as we saw, they create all of these artifical ways to create income and those types of things always causes problems.

    There is risk involved in being traded on Wall Street. We back the money in these banks through FDIC. Because of that, all risk that can be removed should be removed from any bank that wishes FDIC backing. If your desire is riskier investments, great. Just stay the &*$% away from the money of those who don't.
