Sunday Morning Open Thread

I haven't got much time for much of anything else. Mrs. JP and I will be meeting my son Adam later today.

So, in lieu of actual, honest to God blogging screaming about the injustice of the Man oppressing and otherwise buttfucking the proletariat without either lubrication or a reacharound, tell me your stories of taking your money out of a big bank and into a community bank or credit union. Any snotty comments from 30 year-old branch managers with too much gel in their hair saying, "You'll be back"? I wanna hear it

Or, you can tell us about how you're attempting to lynch Citizen Herman Cain in a high tech manner for calling him on sexually harassing not one not two but three women. Oh, no one knows the trouble he's seen and is about to see when that gag order finally gets lifted.

Oh, and did you set your clocks back one hour last night?

I'll be back tomorrow shaking the pigeon shit off the rafters but today belongs to a father and son.

We dumped BOA for a local CU months ago. On my third visit I was greeted by name and asked how can we help you today. The CUs actually value their customers instead of treating them like dogshit.

Exactly. Thank you for sharing.

Back in the '90s I had a bank account with Manufacturer's Trust. That merged and became Hanover Manufacturer's Trust. And they were bought out by Chase. At that time I closed my account and went to Amalgamated Bank, the 'labor' bank in NYC.

It turns out that Amalgamated were even worse! After having not made any transactions to my account for three months and having less than $25 in there for that time, they stole my money, closed my account without telling me, and refused to re-activate my account or open a new one for three years! So much for supporting labor.

I next went to Greenpoint Bank and they were fine.

When I left NYC and moved to VT in 2002, I went directly to a local credit union and I've been there since.

Comrade: Oddly enough, Amalgamated Bank was the bank singled out for attention by Jailbird Jimmy O'Keefe in his #OWS "exposé." One protester said Amalgamated contributed a certain amount of money to #OWS and O'Keefe put words into the guy's mouth and said "big money" when no amount was ever mentioned.

Community banks have always served me and mine pretty well over the last 20 years and there's absolutely no reason to do otherwise.
