Thanks again Scotty for letting me ride this beast when my bike was down.

~ A Common Thought Of Our Forefathers ~

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies."

-Thomas Jefferson-


Citigroup’s main brokerage subsidiary, its predecessors or its parent company were considered by the SEC to have violated the law against purposeful or negligent fraud of customers under interstate commerce five times: in 2000, 2005, 2006, 2010 and 2011. In each instance, the firm undertook “never to breach the law again”.


Bank of America, which now includes Merrill Lynch, was found by the SEC to have violated security laws some sixteen times and made similar pledges on each occasion.

JPMorganChase, which now includes Bear Stearns, was found by the SEC to have violated security laws some twelve times and made similar pledges on each occasion.

The scorecard for other big financial institutions is: UBS —seven times; Goldman Sachs —three times; Wachovia —three times; AIG —twice. The list goes on.


My point ???? Do not rely on these institutions for your financial future. If you already do, make it a serious focus to reduce your reliance on them.
