Tucson By Choice!: Bank With Broken Trust! You Can't Count On Us For All Your Financial Needs.

Bank With Broken Trust! You Can't Count On Us For All Your Financial Needs.

Sure we have money. 

Your congress gave it to us.  Billions and Billions, just like McDonalds hamburgers.  Since it's our money, what we do with it is up to us, not you. What we invest in is our business, not yours. 

Don't like the way that sounds?  Tough.  Somebody's got to be in charge, and it sure as hell isn't your elected officials.  They're convinced that we know what we're doing, and when it comes right down to it, they don't want to be held personally responsible for pushing us over the edge.

If we say the world of finance will collapse unless they give us more money, they believe us, just like you believe a guy with a gun standing in the alley when he says "Give me your watch and your money, or I'll shoot you." 

See?  That's how it works in the real world.  We threaten; you cave.  What's that?  Why do we deserve to be bailed out?

Because we say so.  That's why.

Mike, sad but true!  All they need is the mask and a gun!

Ah, satire.  I love satire.

You're singing to the choir. 

Of course, it helps to have one of your own at the helm of the Department of the Treasury.

The fools in Congress who signed off on the heists got their split before it even happened. 

The President who transmitted the ransom message in the middle of his year long nap and couldn't be wakened. 

I love satire.  It's so damned honest.

Lenn,

Actually, I'm singing with the choir.  Paulson should be made into a permanent soprano.  How's that for damned honesty?  :)

It'd be funny if it weren't so true.  Sad.  I've seen folks who really deserve to have a loan modification be told "tough darts.  We can't do anything for you.  Have you considered short-selling?  Not everyone is going to be able to keep their homes."  And this to a widow who had just lost her husband and thus, his income to help with the mortgage.  Well, yeah, if you don't help them, they sure as heck aren't going to be able to keep that home, now are they?

Lenn's so funny.  Gotta love her =)

Mike, you have hit the proverbial nail on the head.  I had a similar rant on my blog a few weeks ago.  "Mad as heck and not gonna take it anymore."

I think that it is strange that a big lender sneezes just abit and get a billion. UGH

Nice post

Maybe we all need to keep our cans and shovels handy and tell the banks I won't deposit with you anymore?  I like many others are sick to death of banks, wall st, motorcar companies and whoever else has a hand out robbing my grandchildren of their government. What happend to BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE?  oh yeah, its BUY the people.

Mike,

This could easily be a 15-20 second spot (if such a bank existed). Love the graphic. Great name for your bank. :)

Mike,

I thought that I was reading the opening paragraph to a suspense thriller and then I woke up.  Straight and to the point.

Mike, Lenn summed up what I was going to say.  I especially loved the "year-long nap!"  Gosh, everyone in Washington was in a Four-year-long nap.  No one saw a problem until it was a "CRISIS"?  Give me a break.

I just pulled all my accounts from Wachovia ... going with a small local bank with excellent customer service.

I'm not sure about 'buy the people', but I know they are selling us off to China.

Doreen,

Thanks for commenting.  We're doing it to ourselves.  Look at what's happening with Citibank.

Funny stuff, but so true - this is after all, what we are all facing - a crowd of well-dressed thugs who appear to want to refuse to acknowledge  any of what they consider to be middlemen who not on their payrolls. Imagine that... our so-called colleagues unfortunately earned us that reputation.

It has always been and will continue to be so, that it is up to us to rise beyond the fray, and help weed out the troublemakers closer to the top as well.
