They are taking a beating because they gambled on Greece and Italy. Time to learn their lesson the hard way instead of bailing em out. Of course who knows what the fed has decided to back with taxpayer money for all these folks.

They've been very consistent in eating their own or at least putting other 99%'ers out of work and business.

On a side note, now you know the people that do create and provide jobs...

They provided plenty of jobs during the bubble. I know, I housed plenty of them. The economy is moving away from investment banking en masse.

You know the saying, change or get left behind.

What's bad is the left claims to be for poor people. Well, they're helping much poorer people (who don't feel entitled to a job an a certain income) in droves and the left hates it, with a passion.

this is coming from a wicked source (banks) but all american workers are anti organized labor. what they cant see is they are not guna make supervisor next month and they are indeed the workers. they need unions.
the great illusion of american labor, if i do a good job and am honest the company will treat me fairly.

Thanks for the update. banksters shld know that some professionals with options will refuse to ever buy housing and deal with their trash customer servicing b.s. sub-prime mortgage servicing outsourcing....If jpmorgan chase offered me a 10% CD I wouldnt trust them...they are pure felons.

Thanks to the Fed and banksters lets see how this rolls out in the next 5 years

Don't stop with "D" or even "GG" - read them all, get back w/ us in a few months (or years, it may take you that long) and if you still feel we need more regulations, than at least you'll be qualified to speak on it.

Deal? - or do political talking heads who refuse to enforce current regs sound reasonable?

Well here is homework for you. Tell me if states can regulate banks?
