I pulled all of my business accounts and personal from Bank of America I use a small bank ,drive 1 mile further did my part. What are you going to do? Just sit here and be a key stroke warrior?

New Start Time for the March on DC
I just wanted to let everyone know that we are moving the actual start time for the March down Pennsylvania Ave. to 11:30am on 9-12. We just worked this out with the DC Metro Police. This doesn’t change things much, and just gives you all more time to gather and get organized before the March begins.
At Freedom Plaza, we will have speakers and music starting around 9:00am, which is the same time we originally planned to gather. Folks that don’t want to participate in the March, or can’t because of health conditions are encouraged to head down to the West Lawn of the Capitol building and wait for the marchers there.
As far as getting to Freedom Plaza, your best bet is to take the Metro to Federal Triangle, McPherson Square or Metro Center. Bus access to this area may be limited, so check out our guidelines for buses coming into the city.
Here are some speakers for the Freedom Plaza gathering:
Andrew Moylan, National Taxpayers Union
Hi Caliber, Mr. Conservative (music)
Charles Lollar, Maryland
Nic Lott, Mississippi
Diana Reimer, Pennsylvania Tea Party Patriots
Phillip Dennis, Dallas Tea Party Patriots
Tom Gaitens, Florida
Debbie Dooley, Georgia
Matt Kibbe, FreedomWorks
Judge Grants Stay Delaying Release Of Fed Info To Bloomberg
DOW JONES NEWSWIRES - A U.S. district judge in New York City granted a stay that allows the Federal Reserve to delay the release to Bloomberg LP of information about loans it made to banks in the wake of last year's financial meltdown.
The Fed filed for the stay Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, a common procedure for a losing litigant that wants more time to file an appeal. Earlier this week, U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska ruled that the Fed must provide Bloomberg by Aug. 31 information about emergency loans it made to banks during the financial crisis. Bloomberg filed for the documents under the Freedom of Information Act.
Federal Reserve lawyers had argued that the documents should be exempt from FOIA rules, because the information contained in them would hurt banks' public reputations and ability to compete.
In its filing for a stay, the Fed's lawyers argued it meets the criteria for being granted a stay, including a "likelihood that the moving party will be irreparably harmed absent a stay."
On Friday, the judge agreed, granting the stay pending the outcome of the emergency stay application in the Court of Appeals. The parties agreed that the Federal Reserve would file its notice of appeal by Sept. 30.
Representatives from the Fed weren't immediately available for further comment.
THE FEDERAL RESERVE MUST DIE
"Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value ---- zero." Voltaire
"The Federal Reserve in collaboration with the giant banks has created the greatest financial crisis the world has ever seen. The foolish notion that unlimited amounts of money and credit created out of thin air can provide sustainable economic growth has delivered this crisis to us. Instead of economic growth and stable prices, (The Fed) has given us a system of government and finance that now threatens the world financial and political institutions. Pursuing the same policy of excessive spending, debt expansion and monetary inflation can only compound the problems that prevent the required corrections. Doubling the money supply didn't work, quadrupling it won't work either. Buying up the bad debt of privileged institutions and dumping worthless assets on the American people is morally wrong and economically futile."
