Citibank article

http://stockwidget.seekingalpha.com/...ithdrawal-gate

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

No one's going to like it when it's worth as much as toilet paper, and that's not too far away.

I liked this one better and it summarizes my take on the guy in Austin pretty well...

http://stockwidget.seekingalpha.com/...cle_sb_popular

Wealth Disparities in U.S. Approaching 1920s Levels
My Take:

What a time to be an oligarch! All I wanted to do was vomit when I saw this.

Folks, there is no way we can have economic prosperity in this country when the top 1% has all of the money. The middle class is basically being destroyed right in front of our very eyes. Consumption economies die when the consumers have no money to consume!

I see growing signs of desperation and anger as the wealth of this nation continues to get transferred to the elite of this nation.

People are starting to "lose" it as a result. This past week's airplane event in Austin was a disturbing development. I must admit that I really am not surprised. The government shouldn't be either.

Things are only going to get worse in the violence department as the taxpayers continue to get violated and more desperate as a result of this economic cataststrophe. The news media tried to downplay the actions in Austin.

I think Washington was both surprised and concerned about what took place in Texas.

I have to ask: Should the government really be surpised that an American flew a plane into an IRS building in a fit of rage as we all get repeatedly fleeced by the political and social elites of this country?

Let me preface all of this by saying violence is not the answer here. However, why shouldn't every American be infuriated by what has ocurred since this crisis began?

All the government has done is bail out Wall St. continuously since 2008. My guess is the disparity of wealth in this chart would look even worse if it included 2009. The rest of America has basically been ignored minus a few housing programs to help lower mortgage payments.

That's what's been so frustrating about this whole crisis and America is finally starting to get it. Just about ALL of the steps that have been taken by the government to help fix this crisis have involved throwing more and more money to the financial elites of this country. I mean, the examples are endless: TARP, AIG, Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Freddie (FRE), Fannie (FNM)....Need I say more?

The sheeple are finally realizing that the money is not trickling to them like Washington had promised when they threw billions to the banks. The people have only seen things get worse while Wall St. has prospered. They now want to know where their friggin' bailout is!

They are also realizing that the goverment's actions since this all started in 2007 have done nothing but drop the yields on their CD's to 0%. Gee thanks!

Let's not forget that the sheeple/middle class were also victimized by Wall St. as they were gamed into buying homes they couldn't afford. When this fantasy came crashing down they were again violated as they saw their 401k's get cut in half.

The people of this country can only take so much before they start going postal!

In fact:

The Wall St Journal had an article out yesterday around the increasing threats of violence against the IRS:

WASHINGTON—The federal agency charged with ensuring the safety of IRS employees said it has seen an uptick in the past several years in threats against agency personnel.

In the past four years, there appears to have been a "steady, upward trend" in the number of threats against IRS employees, said an official with the Treasury Department's Inspector General for Tax Administration. That assessment, offered in response to an inquiry from Dow Jones Newswires, is based on preliminary data, the official cautioned.

The middle class in starting to feel like that pledge in the movie Animal House who says "thank you sir may I have another" after getting repeatedly paddled by his brothers.

Here is the reality that America has realized: If you are not part of the 1% club in this country you are nothing but a victimized pawn as the elite continue to line their pockets with our nation's income.

The middle class now finds themselves struggling to survive as the economy continues to plunge. Nothing has gotten any better despite what the media pundits tell you. Jobs continue to evaporate and foreclosures continue to soar as the middle class in this country continue to get pummeled.

Meanwhile, Wall St. is busy counting their year end bonuses after making billions gambling the taxpayers' money in 2009 as the sheeple find themselves on the brink of collapse.

The citizens of this country are slowly reaching their breaking point. When Ted Kennedy's Senate seat goes to a Republican you know the people have had it. The poor fellow is now probably rolling over in his grave after seeing a guy from the right take over his office.

The Bottom Line

We are now three years into this crisis and nothing the government has tried has worked. The market may have recovered (for now) but THE PEOPLE haven't. How much pain do these people in Washington think we can take before we start rising up and begin hanging bankers from the lamp posts?

They need to remember that EVERYONE has a maximum threshold of pain. If there was no such thing then you wouldn't see an MMA fighter "tap out" in the UFC. This country is just about there.

The plane crash in Texas should be taken as a shot across the bow in Washington. I am getting really concerned that we are going to see severe social issues in this nation if we continue down the same path in the very near future.

I would hate to see this because violence is not the answer folks. We need solutions and fast. I don't have all the answers but I know where we can start.

We can start by putting an end to the bailouts of the financial elite. Washington needs to start listening to Main St. instead of top 1%'ers on Wall St. If this creates an economic crisis so be it. At least it will keep this country solvent.

The government needs to realize that SELLING $118 BILLION IN T-BILLS NEXT WEEK IS NOT THE ANSWER! This simply cannot be maintained over a long period of time. Ponzi schemes never work and they don't solve financial crises. They end in tears.

Washington needs to wake up because we are headed straight off a cliff. Take one more look at the chart above and look what happened the last time the disparity in wealth in this country got this high.

Can you say Great Depression? Remember, the only way an economy can thrive is when the majority of people involved in it are prospering. We are about to drive off the same cliff that we did in the 1920s as the middle class is turned into a group of SERFS. Be prepared.

I need to end it here because I feel my blood pressure rising

"(Note - There should be no problem with the simultaneous use of other currencies, Fed money or gold included, but the ``even distribution`` of our own, debt-free fiat currency (having the least actual value and the greatest actual utility) will probably drive out the use of any other form of money before too long. Even today, anyone can use gold for transactions if they so desire. The good thing about having our own currency is that we will always know how much of it is extant, know that there won`t ever be a `shortage` (caused by hoarding) that leads to deflation, know that banks can`t print up billions of extra dollars to give to themselves (as the Fed has recently been doing), and know that we are not creating any public or private debt as we require more currency to facilitate trade.)"

Neato! In looking at that the middle class, even though population density has more than doubled, has LESS of the income now than it did then. Think those numbers are adjusted to compensate?


Very cool!

I think if Texas ever does decide to secede from the union and create the Republic of Texas. There will be some major debt issues. Like what percentage of the Governments debt will Texas take with it. But if banks are gonna try and keep Texans from getting their money, then how much debt would we have to take?

Haha silly rabbit. If Texas tries to secede from the US there will be multiple of issues of a much greater importance than trying to figure out what portion of the debt we owe.

maybe Marx was right in his theory that free market capitalism eventually evolves to a state where a very small percentage of people control the vast majority of a nations wealth.

Cannonball didn't say that. That was apparently Marx's solution, be that wouldn't work. A large number of poor people are poor because they spend more than they make. Chances are that wouldn't change even if they did have more money.

I dont think texas should try to secede. I think at the most maybe we should "renegotiate" our contract. per say. We have a lot more resources, taxes and other forms of money/energy going out then we have coming in. If we dont slow it down we are gonna get chewed up and spit out into mexico.

"It is worse then what is reported, I went to my bank Regions and wrote a check for $7500 in cash, they told me to come back tomorrow They did not have the funds on hand!"

WTF what kind of Bank doesnt have 7500 in cash to give someone who is making a partial withdraw? Thats pretty scary if you think about it.

LMAO at CITIBANKS "NOW" bs scam...haha takes 7 days to make a withdraw but they call it "NOW" how stupid do they think we are? banksters crack me up. you think thats bad try to go get a loan. before they were throwing money around like it was water now its like pulling teeth!

I got a used car loan for $15 grand at 4% the other day and all I did was a make a phone call?

I think what you meant to say is it is hard to get a loan if your credit isn't all that great. Which is the way it should be.

That's "per se", as in Latin, you ignorant bumpkin. Don't bother trying to use phrases like that when you don't have clue how to properly use them.
