    I’m still trying to picture an “accidental foreclosure.” Guess i don’t read enough Kafka.

    When Uncle Sam says “oops” a foreign country gets taken over by the Muslim Brotherhood, or a few billion dollars gets wasted on a “green energy” company, or border patrol agents die. I’ll take all the bank’s mistakes over that, thank you.

    Don’t let one goof-up cloud the waters. We’ve had B of A for years without error, but much assistance.

    I moved all my money and business from BofA when they conspired to deny paying earned wages to workers in an illegal plant closing in Illinois back in 2008.

    There I was, signing vacation approvals for our beloved employees, when suddenly I realized one of the requests I had just approved was 70 pages long and required initials on every page…it was an accidental foreclosure! Oops!

    True. He shouldn’t have continued Clinton’s policy of not acting on the CIA’s information. But of course he didn’t have the advantage of hindsight.

    I’m with Andy Jackson on the banks. Except I say, bring on the guillotines, of course. Wall Street and ‘K’ Street need SERIOUS haircuts. Lots of them…

    and a local BofA took two mortgage payments out of a friend’s account in the same month which caused several other checks to bounce and when asked said they would “try” to fix the error but 3 mo. later nothing has been done altho they did reverse the bounced check charges.

    You really should learn how to use apostrophe’s properly. (Yes, this is a joke.)

    History repeats itself, historians repeat each other, and mankind was inexorably changed by the repeating rifle.P.S. Schlessinger’s book is excellent. I second your recommendation.

    Bank of America started in San Francisco as Bank of Italy, with a primarily Italian immigrant cliental. Before the “earthquake” fire reached the bank, they smuggled out the cash on hand under oranges in a handcart. While everyone else was waiting for their vaults to cool, they were on the curb making loans. That enabled them to get big enough to change their name and be above the law. Heute Italia, morgan der Welt.

    Agh! Now I have to change my epitaph for when I die. I do not want to be associated with bankers when I’m six feet under. I’ll likely be rotting in…too, but not on the same level as them.

    This is why little alarm bells go off in the back of my head whenever I hear the words “America”, “freedom”, “liberty”, etc., someplace they don’t need to be. It makes me wonder what the user is trying to make people overlook.
