Pen Pal

Wall Street has crashed our economy and they and their 1% allies and cronies have left the 99% with the bill. Despite the growing voice of people standing up and fighting back, they still think they can ignore us. But no longer. We're setting up pen pals with the 1% so they can hear exactly what we think about how their greed has triumphed over our need. Write your message to the 1% and we'll send it to Wall Street bankers and post it to a public blog.

It's our moment. Seize it!

Ms Zeanwick’s revisonist history is a joke. She got the house in divorce from her husband, who’s son was just murdered when she abandoned him. Funny how she leaves that part out. She did not make her mortgage payments and lost the house a number of years after the divorce

You boys are playing with toys. Without needed adult supervision you are hanging yourselves and taking the rest of us down too. When each grabs all, the whole thing collapses. No quant has it on their chart but your company has to tank. Today JP Morgan Chase gambles and crashes. The numbers do not add up. Do you care? Evidence is, you do not.

Hi guys,

Bank of America closed my checking accting because I became unemployed and had an over draft- why? because they bounched my accounts several time when I had about 70,000 in my account and money a CD – 1000’s of dollars vanished from my accunt Bank of america only gave me the run around when all the money vanished -they closed my account and reported me to the credit company so, I am glad others are speaking out about the abuse and disappearance of the clients money- maybe if enought people tell their story – maybe, the banks with give us back the money the took from our accounts and the houses that are being sold from the people- should your bank treat you like garbage after they rob you?and make you poor?

the culture you have created you will live in . I had a personal experience with someone like you and they had the same attitude suddenly without warning the monster he helped create and feed ate him and now he is one of us and suddenly understands.Being unemployed and on the brink of poverty makes for a new perspective, hope to be here to welcome you when it’s your turn.

Some scumbag loan officer and consenting title office personel conspired to commit mortgage fraud against my parents during a mortgage refinance thereby robbing them of 40 years worth of life savings. Even after I found smoking gun evidence of this crime the feds, state and county law enforcement didn’t do a damn thing to help, especially the pathetic excuse of a rubber stamp judge who presided over their case. Their mortgage got flipped so many times no one could prove ownership, but they lost their home anyway. It is scandalous that the only interests government institutions have time to serve are those of wealthy corporations and banks. This is not the America in which I grew up. The sooner feet are held to the fire the better.

I took my money out of Wachovia Bank because they laundered Mexican drug cartel money. I will have nothing to do with banks who deal with drug dealers! I now only do business with a credit union. I will never again deal with a big bank. Banks have illegally foreclosed on individuals. They also have abandoned their foreclosed homes, not maintaining the properties, further causing neighborhoods to decline even more. Banks only think of gouging the people for their profits!

A wise man once said, “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one.”

Just sit and think about that for a bit and realize that YOU are the few/one and WE are the many…

My gated community is suffering because many homeowners have lost jobs and cannot pay their mortgages or assessments. Lack of assessment money in our community budget and lack of maintenance of homes causes hardship on the rest of the community owners. We are all paying more in assessments and our property values are sinking. Banks wait so long to foreclose the home and property is in shambles in the end. This situation takes all incentive for me to spend my dollars for home repair and revitalization that might help the economy. Listen to the Occupy Wall Street people. They have it right. We are fed up with the status quot—-government by the rich for the rich. I am 73 and would gladly camp out with them for as long as it takes to get the reversal we need from congress if I could physically do it.

I used to be a stockbroker. My principal taught me to work hard and be honest and the clients would trust me. He built a very respectable independent business before he retired. It is possible to be successful without being greedy and causing innocent people to go without homes while the 1% laugh and buy $8000 shower curtains.

The ridiculous bank of america plan to charge a 5 dollar fee for using my debit card was the last straw. I am officially angry with this economic situtation and I blame the so called job creators!

I find it amazing and hypocritical that so many of these bankers and investors as well as banking institutions and investing institutions and insurance institutions all campagined for decades about the great system of capitalism.

In the 90s they even lobbied for deregulation and were awarded such priveleges by the U.S. Government.

But when these same people and institutions became embroiled in a huge serious financial crisis they turned to a socialistic solution and approach. They eagerly accepted the enormous aid by the taxpayers with the authority of the U.S. Government under the then Bush administration. Thus they gladly and willingly took the bailout money and used a socialistic solution to an ugly problem that they created by their unethical attitude and disregard for the American people.

Now that the American people and taxpayers are experiencing a huge financial crisis these same institutions and bankers and investors and insurance giants refuse to extend any help.

These same ungrateful people are upset at the protests and the demand by the vast majority of Americans for intense government regulations and socialized health system.

I have not mentioned yet that when these criminal people accepted the bailout money they helped themselves illegally to it for their private gain when the money was completely meant for the economy not bonuses.

Now they wonder why such a vast majority of Americans not longer have any credibilty in them.

The working class and the poor are always being called upon to be patriotic and to make sacrifices for the good of our nation. We get tax increases, wage cuts, longer work hours, less benefits. Our kids fight the wars. Then our tax dollars get spent to bailout criminally negligent corporations, their CEO’s continue to give themselves huge bonuses as a reward for destroying the american economy, our homes are foreclosed on, our jobs are shipped overseas and our pension funds are stolen. It’s time for the 1% to be patriotic, make sacrifices and start acting like responsible human beings.

You took more than your share. Sent our jobs overseas to raise the stock prices and then told us we did not want to work for a fair wage, one more in line with Third World Countries. Well, game over. Time for a reset.We will not let you make our Democracy into a place Benito Amilcare Andrea Mussolini would feel at home. A country that servers business interests over citizens interests. I like the laws our Founding Fathers had for Corporations. Time to bring that vision back and remind the world Companies are not people and have only the “Rights” we give them. They do not have the “Right” to control the Media and buy our Government. I support Democracy and our Founding Fathers. Not Benito’s & Ayn Rand’s Dream. Liberty & Justice for all “People” Humans. Corporations are just bad legal fiction. Time for a rewrite of our laws.
