Thinking About New Year's Resolutions?

Here's something to think about, we think, on an otherwise dreary New Year's afternoon
The idea is simple: If enough people who have money in one of the big four banks move it into smaller, more local, more traditional community banks, then collectively we, the people, will have taken a big step toward re-rigging the financial system so it becomes again the productive, stable engine for growth it's meant to be. It's neither Left nor Right -- it's populism at its best.

Move Your Money: A New Year's Resolution
December 29, 2009

Now that the new year has arrived, are you thinking about New Year's resolutions? In that connection, here's something interesting from the Huffington Post:

Move Your Money: A New Year's Resolution
Be sure to check out the thought-provocative video, (which is also embedded on the Huffington Post site):

There's also a link to the site, which has a handy search box enabling curious readers to identify healthy local community banks:
Move Your Money - Find a Bank
Being the curious type ourselves, we googled our own zip code... and here are our search results, (saved to an Adobe PDF file):
Banks in Your Neighborhood - Zip Code 84403
Something to think about, we think, on an otherwise dreary New Year's afternoon.

And what say our gentle readers about all this?

Nowhere in the constitution does it mention free-market or capitalism. Yet it goes on about we the people, checking its own powers and promoting the general welfare.

There is no doubt who the new pharaohs are, nor any doubt who is underneath the wheel.

Rudi, Thanks for the story and for the links! Been banking with Bank of Utah about 30 years - good to see them recognized.

Here is some information to chew on - red meat as Rudi calls it.

It has been in the news that Barnes Bank is in trouble, but check out the following links for Barnes and then Centennial Bank.

Looks to me like the Troubled Asset Ratio of Centennial is even worse than Barnes

Here's something interesting, at least to me. I've been looking for Frank Capra's masterpiece, "It's a Wonderful Life" on my Comcast movie playlist for the past few years.

I doubt this classic flick has ever been broadcast within the last few years.

Wha's up with this? Is the corporate giant Comcast afraid that its viewers will connect the dots about the giant ripoff that banking giants are pulling off, with our government's help?

Are the corporate media giants (like Comcast) covering up for the corporate Mr. Potters of the world?

Are they all sticking together for a final right wing socialist assault on the American Middle Class?

Just a thought.
