Bank of America

Time for another bath. This time metaphorical. And based on Moody's downgrade methodology, a Citi downgrade is imminent. "The downgrades result from a decrease in the probability that the US government would support the bank, if needed. Moody's believes that the government is likely to continue to provide some level of support to systemically important financial institutions. However, it is also more likely now than during the financial crisis to allow a large bank to fail should it become financially troubled, as the risks of contagion become less acute. Moody's is therefore lowering the amount of support it incorporates into Bank of America's ratings to levels reflected prior to the crisis."

They should have allowed the large banks to fail in the first place.
Bank of America a.k.a., the evil empire!

Yup, couldn't have said it better myself.

Big banks...never should've gotten bailed out in the first place. The banks need to take responsibility for their own shoddy business practices and investments.
Big banks got bail-out money for doing poorly in 2008, and what's happening now......again?
Hopefully this time 'round they are allowed to reap what was sewn.

The taxpaying dollars get used for great things, I see. SUXORS.

I agree with everything everyone is saying but know this, these banks ARE too big to fail. if a large bank like BofA goes under, so dose the country. The FDIC is broke as well so all those deposits will have to go to the FED's and the FED's will have to print money to make good on the FDIC. Hot money hitting the market instently equels instent inflation and with these $$$ amounts hyperinflation!

Theres no way around it guys

You and me both dude. My landlord was wary at first of me giving him straight up cash but then he realized I'm not like everyone else in New Mexico that makes a grow house/meth lab out of your place. Still gets me every time I give him a wad of 600 bucks.

Hmmm....
are things getting so bad that TPTB are now beginning to sacrifice each other.

Dissension amongst the ranks maybe?

im i the only one thinking that someone is making a lot of money on this.the extra intrest the banks get to pay will one way or another come from us as less intrest in acounts and more on loans.
and that money will go to people who are already well off.
how many yachts and villas do these people want.

Wells Fargo was my mortgage holder in New Orleans shortly after hurricane Katrina. Numerous different offers for my 'short sale' home went "Denied" by Wells Fargo. they've kept hold of my credit score for years now and refuse to officially foreclose because it would then be on their 'books' as a loss - so I'm in limbo with bad credit.

To hell with the 'credit' system. To hell with Wells Fargo. To HELL WITH THEM ALL! BURN BABY BURN!
