I see a lot of people on the right saying 99% should be attacking the government in DC instead of the financial heart in NYC. In a way they are attacking both with the 'walk your money to credit unions' message. If people actually do this in even moderate numbers, it will hit both the financial institutions and the politicians on both side where it really hurts - in the wallet. Where do you think most of the contributions for the GOP and Dems come from? The wealthy & corporations or average Janes and Joes? Anything that mess with the power of the wealthy to continue business as usual will mess with the money available to politicians.

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Bush was an idiot for signing it and while I was never going to vote for McCain because of McCain/Feingold his vote for it sealed it. Obama is sort of like the slow kid that get's in trouble by hanging with the group. He knows no better.Do you oppose both parties and the president that has their stench on them from years of being in bed with them? You are blaming banks for being banks when your real grief is with congress.
Discarding well established lending principles, while highly encouraged by Congress is also the fault of the banks. I'm not sure how you can get so snippy with me for blaming all involved while you are excusing a major player.
