Bank suspends dealings with ACORN housing entity
WASHINGTON (AP) — Bank of America Corp. is suspending its work with the housing affiliate of embattled community organizing group ACORN. The decision comes as three Republicans in Congress ask Bank of America and 13 other financial institutions to give Congress a complete accounting of their dealings with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now or its affiliates.
In a statement, Bank of America said it would not enter into any further agreements with ACORN Housing Corp. until the bank is satisfied all issues have been resolved. ACORN Housing Corp. and Bank of America have worked together for years on mortgage foreclosure issues.
You will have to excuse me on this one, but this is like Bernie Madoff calling your local WallMart Shoplifter who has been caught…
Bank of America, as the largest US Bank – stole a goodly part of the $38 BILLION collected from consumers last year in “Overdraft fees” on their checking accounts by banks. Overdraft fees, which were often manipulated into existence – by the bank. And that doesn’t even get into the predatory sub-prime lending of some of their subsidiaries.
The only real difference between Al Capone and Bank of America, is while Al was able to buy protection from a Mayor and a Governor…
Bank of America’s corrupt enterprise has enabled them to buy protection from Congress.
If America weren’t the 13thon the list of corrupt nations in the world (the Economist)…
The senior executives and senior financial staff of Bank of America would be spending 20 years of jail time next to the “common” thieves…
Teaching them how to steal big.
Making America a real “Land of Opportunity”.

During the Bushit Administration, private armies were encouraged, financed, and developed ostensibly to free up US troops to focus on combat operations. The largest of these companies was Blackwater, which is now operating under the name Xe. Blackwater was just one of several dozen companies which “magically” appeared and were granted no-bid contracts in the billions of dollars making instant millionaires out of people with the right connections to the Bushit Junta.
The first public hint that these private armies weren’t quite on the up and up came early as part of the Abu Garib torture scandal, where it was revealed that a number of the contractors hired by several of these companies included former member of the South Africa Apartheid regime’s special police who had tortured and murdered members of the ANC and South African freedom protesters. At least some of these private contractors were being used in “Rendition” projects, AND – not being subject to the Military’s legal restrictions, the torture of prisoners. These contractors operated as Dick Cheney’s private Army – a quasi legal military organization not bound by the Geneva Conventions.
