    Yes, there is a lot of hypocrisy being shown over this. The party is also in D.C. Will they put the blame where it belongs? I don't know yet.
    Again...were you in synch with the Tea party when they opposed TARP and the bailouts? 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.

    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.

    taking into account that everybody has different situations and conditions.... for the life of me I do not know why anybody who is NOT in a commercial business deals with commercial banks and not with the local credit union.

    Its just one of those mysteries of life like why anybody takes up chewing tobacco .

    I was against TARP even before the Tea Party. Member Perfectstorm will verify if need be.

    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.

    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.

    I've stuck with my bank because they all know me and if I need something it's quick and easy. Big bank in a small town. We are NOT rich but we have enough in the bank to not get hit with the fee's.

    So you think intentionally attacking and hurting people is a good thing?
