On June 4th, members of F The Banks will be escalating our campaign to highlight the failure of the government to investi…gate the financial crisis.

Recently, we took our campaign to Attorney General Schneiderman’s office, to try and take charge of his underfunded, understaffed, and underachieving “Task Force”. Now, we’re going straight to his boss, Obama. And we’re going to hit him where it hurts: his campaign funds.

It’s predicted that the Obama campaign and related PACs will spend over a billion dollars trying to get him re-elected. For just a few cents out of every campaign dollar, they could fully fund the task force that he touted in his State of the Union speech.

Instead, Congress is refusing to fund it, and the task force is floundering.

While Obama is fundraising for his campaign, we’ll be holding a fundraiser for what really matters: bringing the banks to justice.

We’ll bring one dollar each, and wave it in their faces to underscore the ridiculous disparity between campaign spending and the amount of money needed to bring justice to the bankers who caused this crisis. We will bang our pots and pans to bring noisy attention to their quiet investigation.

BILLIONS FOR A CAMPAIGN, NOTHING FOR JUSTICE?
FIGHT BACK. HIT THEM WHERE IT HURTS

I think the concept of this, maybe minus the pot banging (though I don't mind noise personally, demanding justice should be loud), is great and maybe it will catch like wildfire. Our system of governance and justice is completely and nakedly corrupt now.

We are told all the time that there's no money for this and no money for that while American Taxpayer foots the bill for bailouts that go to companies that pay their CEO's multi-million dollar bonuses. No money to investigate that massive fraud that lead to the collapse in 2008...fine, what will be their excuse when the People raise the money for the investigation?
