Big Banks Won’t Stop Cramming Homosexuals Down Franklin Graham’s Throat

Jesus loves the little children, unless they're super-duper gay. SING ALONG!
Poor persecuted Franklin Graham, insane wingnut son of evangelist Billy Graham and president of his daddy’s association, saw a Wells Fargo ad on the teevee, and the ad had lesbians in it, and this shall not stand! So he took his mad right to the Facebook and announced what he was gonna do: close the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s Wells Fargo accounts (because he controls them now that his dad is 96) and move them to a better, more gay-hatey bank: Read more on Big Banks Won’t Stop Cramming Homosexuals Down Franklin Graham’s Throat…

Banks ‘Pleased’ To Be Paying Pittance To Poors Whose Homes They Stole

Remember that elderly disabled veteran that Wells Fargo wrongfully foreclosed on and then billed to death over a typo? Well too bad he dropped dead in court, because he otherwise would have (maybe) been entitled to a cool $300 – $1000 to compensate him for his time and inconvenience. No, really: this is what his time and inconvenience (and also, his house) is worth according to federal regulators. DON’T SPEND IT ALL IN ONE PLACE OK?

Wells Fargo Bills Elderly Disabled Veteran To Death Over Typo

Every day, we wake up thinking that we cannot possibly dislike the banks (and their enablers) more than we did them the day before, and most of the days we are right, and our fear and loathing glides along on a steady keel. But once in a while we are proven wrong and learn of something so horrible that we are forced to critically examine our current stance towards the banks (and their enablers), and inevitably conclude that the intensity of our feelings requires revisiting. Today was such a day, because today we learned of Larry Delassus, a disabled veteran who dropped dead in court while fighting Wells Fargo about their mistaken foreclosure on his house: Read more on Wells Fargo Bills Elderly Disabled Veteran To Death Over Typo…

Wells Fargo Even Sorrier After Second Time It Foreclosed on Wrong House

Remember that nice couple we told you about last week — the Tjosaas family, whose home in Twenty-Nine Palms was “accidentally” foreclosed upon by Wells Fargo even though the couple didn’t even have a mortgage? Turns out: this was the SECOND TIME that Wells Fargo had “accidentally” foreclosed on that house by mistake, but it’s cool because Wells Fargo remains “deeply sorry” about both “unfortunate situations.” The good news is that the Tjosaas family can now “accidentally” rob a Wells Fargo bank of their choice (twice) and issue a statement that they are “deeply sorry about this unfortunate situation” and then all will be forgiven. Ha! Ha! Ha! This, of course, is not true — Incorporated Americans are somehow not people when they are committing crimes, but non-Incorporated Americans are always people.

Wells Fargo Accidentally Forecloses on Wrong House, Throws Away Couple’s Precious Memories

Hello, would you like to hear a heartwarming story about banks? Oh good, because last week, a bank accidentally foreclosed on the wrong house and a nice middle aged couple lost everything that wasn’t nailed down and can never get it back, ever again. Sorry, precious memories, about going to the wrong address and all. Hindsight is 20/20, etc! Read more on Wells Fargo Accidentally Forecloses on Wrong House, Throws Away Couple’s Precious Memories…

Greedy Lawyers Victimize Hard-Working Bankers

This week, grasping racist trial lawyers (aka Obama’s base) massacred our nation’s most important job creators, predatory bankers. Gubmint lawyers (conflict of interest, much?) announced a $175 million settlement to be paid by the Wells Fargo Stagecoach & Freight Haulage Co. to a bunch of ungrateful blahs and Messicans who were granted the great privilege of sub-prime loans by one of Wells Fargo’s more predatory subsidiaries (like that is even Wells Fargo’s fault). Turns out these borrowers were “qualified” to receive ordinary loans with lower fees and interest rates, just as if they were regular Americans, but didn’t because, duh? Look at them.

Saturday Is Bank Transfer Day, So What Will You (We) Do?

It says a lot about the Internet that the first thing we saw about the November 5 Anti-Bank Action Day was a snide remark. Something along the lines of “Good job dumb hippies, banks are closed on Saturday.” First of all, not true at all! Bank headquarters are closed on Saturday, but most bank branches nationwide are open on Saturdays, at least until noon. And, for those who still have weekday work schedules, Saturday makes a lot more sense than, say, a weekday. Anyway, tomorrow — Saturday, November 5 — is Bank Transfer Day. If you’re still using a Wall Street Bank, meaning any of the big chain banks, it’s time to Occupy your branch office and close your account. And a lot of credit unions are staying open late, so you can go right to your new local credit union and deposit the cashier’s check from BofA or Chase or Wells Fargo or whatever.

Naughty Wingnuts Put Bad Word On Dick Durbin’s Wikipedia Page

RUH-ROH. Can you spot it?! The wicked little Internet trolls are fiddling around on their favorite source of Official History, Wikipedia, to try to embarrass Senator Dick Durbin. We have to admit — it’s a little bit mysterious why anyone would want to pick on this rather harmless lefty Illinois Senator who usually ambles around Congress advocating for moderate reforms on poison levels in children’s toys and more money for brain-damaged veterans. UNLESS, maybe, it has something to do with Durbin’s recent crusade against greedy bank executives? Read more on Naughty Wingnuts Put Bad Word On Dick Durbin’s Wikipedia Page…

NEWS FLASH: Loan Modifications Work Best When They Actually Lower Monthly Payments

Criminy! We have been hearing a lot about mortgages that go into default or foreclosure, and how the people holding these mortgages should talk with their lenders about renegotiating their loans. As a normal person with more than two (2) neurons flickering on and off in your brain, you probably assume that the goal here is to make the loans more affordable, which is to say, LOWER IN COST. Apparently banks sometimes disagree. Read more on NEWS FLASH: Loan Modifications Work Best When They Actually Lower Monthly Payments…
