BANK OF AMERICA – THE HEIGHT OF HYPOCRISY

December 19th, 2010 · No Comments · Social Commentary

I pulled my money out of Bank of America – You Should too.

It’s really quite amazing how Bank of America is coming out with these feel good holiday commercials (just saw one while watching the Giants and the Eagles on Fox), about how they’re helping the poor…. amid reports of forged documents, faulty notarizations and “robo-signers” – who signed off on thousands of evictions every month without reading the files as required by law- – they’re going to give up to 1 million dollars to The Boys and Girls clubs of America. Big deal. Bank of America (the US’s largest bank), received $20bn in government aid and $118bn of guarantees against bad assets.

What about the Ex-Chief of Bank of America Ken Lewis being charged (finally) with Fraud?

I can’t wait to see what WikiLeaks has on these guys. Interestingly enough however you cannot get any information on what the documents may hold. If you Google “Bank of America Wikileaks” you will have to go 49 pages in to get anything at all because someone has made sure that all the search results return nothing of value.

However, here’s an interesting clip on YouTube

WikiLeaks apparently is urging Bank of America customers to move their money “somewhere safer” after the bank blocked payments for the group. The Bank of America announced Friday night it was joining other financial institutions in refusing to process payments intended for the anti-secrecy network. Big deal send checks if you have to.

The Charlotte (N.C.) Observer reported a tweet, believed to come from WikiLeaks, asking “all people who love freedom close out their accounts at Bank of America.” That was followed by a message: “Does your business do business with Bank of America? Our advice is to place your funds somewhere safer.”

Check out this video. And don’t think for a second Bank of America cares about hungry kids or would think twice about throwing people out of their homes.
