And with that, you did more than 1,000 protesters will ever do sitting around in a park, carrying an ambiguous sign to effect change.

FDIC will never go broke
This article explains how 2 years ago(written on Nov. 27, 2009) the FDIC was 8.2 BILLION in the hole. I'd hate to hear what it is today.
For everyone on ATS and anyone else in America. By giving banks money to deposit you are only assisting them in continual destruction of our economy. There is a solution folks, and this thread is spot on. You don't need to sit outside in the cold for weeks protesting. Calmly walk down to your local branch bank and take your account to zero. You don't necessarily have to close your account, and without everyone's deposits the banks can't do business.
I grew up around banking and before I was out of high school was a bank teller(during Y2K), and I can tell you if you are planning on making a withdrawal on Nov. 5th there will be a good chance they will have extra cash available.
My point is we all know the banks are the problem. Our Founding Fathers warned us about them. There is no point in supporting their efforts to destroy our way of life for their gain.
Down with the banks and End the Fed!!
why do I share all of this with you? For one, I wanted to let people know that it IS still possible to withdraw large sums of cash from BoA and close your accounts - just be ready for them to beg. Two, that management is aware that people are angry (how could they not be!) and have put an ear to the ground.
The manager was pleasant enough and very direct. After introducing herself she flat out asked "What can we do to change your mind?" "We don't want to see you go" she emphasized. This opened a door for me to further explain my decision to leave the bank and why I was doing it.
I asked if there would be an issue with securing the cash and she said "I honestly don't know if we have that here" and walked out to get the branch manager.
Yesterday was different. I visited a branch to make a business deposit

What you did, you did for yourself. I'm not disillusioned to think believe you care about me or others who use that bank. You made your move to protect your assists and nothing more. Suggesting otherwise is just bordering on looking for attention. Asking me or others to cater to you for free on what to say to individuals who you are displeased with isn't my concern.
A little jealous are we.....
Most $ are 0 and 1 in a computer. If there is a rush to withdraw cash, no one will get any money and the US will be in total chaos. It will happen but when it does it will affect even your Credit Union my friend and Credit Unions are not all they are cracked up to be but you don't realize that yet.
