Congress makes them after the banks and mega corps BUY them.

You do realize that Congress and the Banks work hand in hand?
You do realize that the Congress makes the laws, NOT the banks?

uh..I think I wouldn't have let them in either. Bank has no obligation to allow a protestor into their bank, even if they have an account. So.. perhaps if they showed up like a regular person and asked to close account, they would have.
Stop spreading lies. BOA will definately let you close your account, just not if you yell at them from outside with a bullhorn before you do.

greedy banks make me sick
This is why I laugh when banks get robbed. I never feel bad when the greedy bankers lose ten or twenty thousand!

You're right they do try to hold it.
Way back in 1989 I worked for a phone company owned by the federal government (Australia) back then it was called telecom now it's called telstra and no longer owned by the government. I left to join the army and my holiday pay and other monies owing to me was paid in the form of a reserve bank cheque. I took it to my then bank being the commonwealth bank, again at that time owned by the federal government but no longer, The teller said to me " that will take 3 working days to clear" I said " it's a reserve 'bank cheque, if it bounces the country is bankrupt" She agreed and approved the 'bank cheque strait away. That means that she could have done it anyway but the policy obviously was to hold it and get interest off it. So I had one government bank trying to hang on to the money from "THE" government bank for the interest.
And they can tell right away if there's enough money in the account you're drawing from to cover it.
“I have an inherent duty as a CEO of a publicly owned company to get a return for my shareholders,” Moynihan said in an interview with CNBC’s Larry Kudlow at the Washington Ideas Forum, Customers and shareholders will “understand what we’re doing,”
May I ask why you took out a mortgage on a piece of property you will never own? All you have done is tie yourself down and committed to 30 years of wage slavery. Remember, the government "owns" the land. You just rent it from them for an annual fee. Skip paying that annual fee, even after paying off your mortgage, and they will repossess their land lickety split.

Wells Fargo has my mortgage but there's really not much you can do about that. You might set up a mortgage with a small bank but they can sell it after a few months to one of the Wall Street groups.
I have had not had dealings outside of that with the Wall Street banks for over 20 years. USAA Credit Union all the way!

I tried using my Bof A debit card last night and it would not work, I figured it may have been blocked for some security reason like using it too often in different states since I travel for work this has happened a couple of times before. I called them to straighten it out as I have done before without any problems. This time, for some unknown reason, my personal security answers to their questions were "not matching what they had on file", I argued with them that I know I have my driver's license number correct since I am staring at the dang card and I know I haven't forgot my SS# WTH?
Long story short, I still can't use my debit card and I am out of state without money and there are no Bof A's here
So until they get their s**t squared away I'm screwed!
Govt: Hey you bank you cant do that anymore!
Bank: ok govt...we will do something else to make up the loss your regs create then!
consumer being screwed
