Braking the banks By Megan Thompson and Rick Karr July 13, 2012 When President Barack Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform and consumer protection act almost two years ago, many thought the battle over stricter banking rules was over.

And how much money do we give the Banks in subsidies and how much did we spend in taxpayer bailouts in 2008 and 2009 with no strings attached? And the Banks still have the nerve to charge outrageous fees or do what they want to your bank account by changing terms when they feel like it??!! If Ray Ray and Pookie and 'nem can get 20 years for slinging rock on the block, the corporate persons (as deemed by the Supreme Court) need to face serious jail time.

If black people had the resources, I'm sure lots would be more than happy to leave the United States premises, to allow cops to leave their guns in their holsters for a few days and blast other folks into the Great Beyond for a change. Seems white folks would be more than thrilled to pay reparations to be free of the detested Africans living here. Set them free, they'll set you free of having to kill them every damn day.
