A rapacious Bank of America forecloses on a house that's already paid for. Goldman Sachs hides Greece's hundreds of billions in debt until the entire country is a toxic asset to the global economy. Move it - or - lose it, fight for what is RIGHT! MOW!!

Join the growing movement at Care2 to for Americans to become more self aware of what's happening to our country. Big business does not offer you more security - but less, too big to fail is only one more of many excuses to take your tax money to pay out even more in bonuses for a failed business. Does any one really want health care bought and paid for by health insurance companies and drug companies? Reform of this country is up to you. If you care to be a part of a movement to make changes then we want YOU. Please become a part of movement for REAL CHANGE.

Let's move on all towns. cities, state capitols and Washington DC and then tell them they work for us and we demand the changes that favor us not the DC gang. We are: "We The People" Join and be proud.

Everyone can do something if they really want to change America - whether you are left - right or somewhere in the middle you know we need real changes not real talk.

Thanks for the post, Kit. Already have a credit union account and have DUMPED big ol' Chase and let them know why. It was a "feel good" moment! I also wholeheartedly recommend the Care2 "March on Washington" group. Carole is VERYgood at listing pertinent articles and petitions there, so a visit to the site keeps one up-to-date and informed on the latest to take action on. I appreciate all you both do in this fight for Real Change.

I agree with the author that credit unions can indeed be a better choice in many instances than banks. But right now interest rates virtually anywhere are rock bottom (my own account is down from 5.05% interest to around 1.05% interest right now - miserable situation).

I can't help wondering what the dishonesty of Goldman Sachs' and the Greek nation will do the rest of the world - if that situation is going to cause significant problems for the Euro, the EU, and trickle outwards. I cannot fathom why any financial institution would be willing to risk all to lie for the benefit of politicians.

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Judy because you have done so within the last week.


So very true Judy, Carole keeps us all informed and motivated to keep fighting and reaching out to take back what is ours by the constitution.

Some people can not make a trip to DC or even in some cases to a their state capitals - but what about their own home town? There are many ways to "create" interest in a local rally and get media attention, I have mentioned a "Funeral for Democracy" what about the "Death of health care." All of this is inexpensive, and requires few to get it going and then it will take off as others learn about about what's happening. Some will be supportive and others may be not - but it will gain attention.

Thank you for posting Kit! You are right, there are several ways to "create" interest in a local rally. I like the inexpensive ways to get media attention. ~

Thanks, Kit. I lost my retirement account due to the corporate evils plaguing this country. I moved what little I had left to a local bank. Where's OUR bailout?

I despise banks. I use my bank as a clearing house. My money goes in and it goes out. I have free withdrawal and deposit up to a certain number of transactions per month so my banking costs me nothing. I have two credit cards (VISA and MasterCard) that I use as a convenience but I pay them off every month. I pay no yearly fees and no interest. My savings are in guaranteed investments spread out amongst the banks and are ceverything is covered by the Canadian Deposit Insurance Corporation. I don't earn a lot of interest but enough to cover inflation. As far as I am concerned I am happy to distance myself from the banks. Any business that takes pride in ripping off its customers does not deserve our support. They charge us outrageous interest rates and fees and pay pennies in interest for the priviledge of using our money. Somehow things got really changed around. We are all afraid of the banks because we owe them so much. When you owe nothing you can tell anyone to go to hell. If everyone would stop using their credit cards and lines of credit for just one year we could force the banks to treat us fairly.

Thanks Kit.

The irony is that Bank of America began in just this way.

Here in CA a lot of the credit unions are in trouble too. I never have used the big banks but even I am worrying.
