Golly, why would anyone want to leave Bank of America?

via pt at

It’s hard to believe that nearly 700,000 people have opened accounts with credit unions over large banks in the last several weeks with stories like this:

A federal judge on Monday gave final approval to a $410 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit affecting more than 13 million Bank of America customers who had debit card overdrafts during the past decade.

Sounds pretty good right, things should of happened, bank making amends. Well, not exactly.

Barry Himmelstein, an attorney for customers who objected to the deal, said he calculated that the bank actually raked in $4.5 billion through the overdraft fees and was repaying less than 10 percent.

So the bank wrongfully took your money, but to let bygones be bygones they’ll return less than a dime on every dollar they took.

Nice way to profit over wrongful conduct.

It’s almost as if they have a Party representing them exclusively…and by that I mean both.

The "Big Lie"... How it works and what it is for



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
