    Wow.

    Fords, Chevys and Dodges may not be perfect, but they beat the hell out of what Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan have done to the world's economy.

    You can have your precious New York banks.

    Are you the change or not?

    •  They exactly the same (0+ / 0-)

      The same people run them.  They used the same shady accounting practices to avoid disclosing risks they took on, etc.

    •  I've never met anyone who complained (0+ / 0-)

      about their bank account with a New York bank breaking down, being a lemon or just being crap and if it did, they'd get it back through the FDIC. But I've met PLENTY of people with a Chrysler lemon, disfunctional GM or Ford which didn't last more than a year or two.

      And BTW banks such as Bank of America are fine, they bought up a bad bank and their stock has been steadily climbing, don't worry about NY Banks.

    •  And GM, Chrysler and Ford have been (0+ / 0-)

      worse for the economy, the environment and the country. They were ignorant to the fact that the SUV was not a car that would sell because of gas prices and Environmental concerns, their SUVS are emiting gases which are ruining the planet and they are screwing with american power because they can't produce a product to compete with Japan. The Car comnpanies have done far worse than the banks.

      •  Keep going (0+ / 0-)

        .... I like the ones who aren't creative. Makes it more entertaining to watch.
