Fight Bank of America Today in Seattle

Posted 4 months ago on Nov. 22, 2013, 1:40 p.m. EST by grimwomyn (35) from New York, NY

TODAY 4:30 PM, Friday, November , 22 2013

Jane’s home on Beacon Hill is scheduled to be auctioned in December. BofA refuses to negotiate because they consider it an "investment property". BofA will not negotiate with her because of this and housing counselors and lawyers have offered no real solutions. As her options are limited and BofA has been torturing her for years now, SAFE will use a campaign to publicly pressure BofA to negotiate. Jane wants to stay in her home. We shall not be moved.

Check out KingCast and Morgage Movies' coverage of her story.

What: Picket Action to defend Jane Mair’s home from BofA as part of an escalating campaign on North Beacon Hill. We will have signs, flyers, and bullhorns to blast BofA for trying to steal another home.

Where: Meet up at Red Apple (near bus stop) across the street from Bank of America. 2555 Beacon Avenue South Seattle, WA 98144

I keep saying - punish the bastards - close all accounts at these banks - open a community credit union account - the more people who do this the better - also it is a message that can not be easily dismissed.

Well Said

Hit em where it hurts and it doesn't cost a thing other than the time to do it.

[-] 4 points by Nevada1 (4024) 4 months ago

Agree. We closed all BoA and WF accounts, and went to local credit union two years back----felt great.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 4 months ago

I hear ya - I felt pretty good after I dumped WF - took the time to tell em why I was closing my account too - piss poor business practices along with what are likely many many many illegal foreclosures.

Mexican Drug Cartel Laundered Money Through BofA, FBI Alleges

Yep - if the government wants to fight a drug war and go after the biggest crooks in the world - it would start with the to big to fail banks.

fines for laundering drugs money may seem huge, but banks pay them out of petty cash.

A very familiar situation - Hey? - fines that do not scratch the surface amount of money involved. Ho-hum make sure accounting is properly budgeted for the usual fines....................yes they can use petty cash ....

[-] 1 points by Nevada1 (4024) 4 months ago

Yes, petty cash to them, but am wondering if they really even had to pay it.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 4 months ago

Makes one wonder - what exactly happens to money collected in fines.

Shifting focus a bit - imagine taking drug money ( captured/confiscated ) and put it towards such things as public health care and Social Security and unemployment insurance - but then also add in the billions of yearly given subsidies to fossil fuel - figure if they withheld a billion per year to a set max amount for financing all political parties on an equal basis. I mean - really - how much money is spent in all 50 states for a complete campaign cycle anyway? There would go the need for any private donations to any political party - and so - ban private donations - say bye bye private ( corp(se)oRATion ) interest money. But a huge piece of that money could be used for implementing clean energy - upgrading our power infrastructure and the creation of clean jobs.

These solutions if adopted would be so helpful. Constantly blocking the way is this corporate Feeding Frenzy. Dow at 16000, while us regular people pay multiple times more than we should for most things.

[-] 3 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 4 months ago

Even more helpful would be a tax placed on every transaction that wallstreet makes as well as collecting proper taxes from ( all ) the wealthy businesses and individuals. F'n wallstreet and non-existent electronic smoke and mirrors money. The economy should be based on reality not someones pipe-dream speculation.

What would be a huge immediate boost to the general economy ( = real people ) would be to cancel taxes for those ( single ) making under 30,000 a year - as that money would go into housing food transportation clothing etc in the community - from there sales taxes are collected as is tax on the businesses - so it goes to the government in proper taxes anyway - but only after doing good for the individual and family and business 1st.

Excellent.

OH almost forgot - how embarrassing - military budget needs to be halved - right from the start - and then regularly ( yearly? ) reduced further. Maybe then they wouldn't be so damned trigger happy.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 4 months ago

Good - cool - now we just got to get a few hundred million others to agree and then make it happen. {:-])

Yes, my previous post makes you wonder, but instead of replying to me, you stinkle and ignore me. Oh, ouch. Oh, the paaaainnnnn! (wipes her brow in consternation).

To repeat: What's the diff? The money just gets recycled into the DC crony capitalist money pit. If they did pay it, they will get it back.....can you say QE Infinity?

Agree. We don't have a government, just a bunch of thugs.

[-] 2 points by lindaloo (-13) 4 months ago

Yup. And those thugs are shaking the middle class on down, down That's what really hurts. Even if the 47% don't pay FEDERAL income tax, they are effectively paying over 17% of their income to the fed (the payroll tax and employer match thereof, as well as medicare tax and match). Not everyone seems to realize that employers are kickin about 9% to DC that they would otherwise be paying their employees. AND, most states income taxes are no where near as "forgiving" as the fed. The working poor are easily paying over 20% of their earnings to the elite thugs in DC.

A giant RICO thing?

[Removed]

[-] 0 points by georgiegirl (-1) 4 months ago

Ha, Ha. RICO is a tool for the dc racketeers instead of a cudgel. Orwell had a term for this distortion of language.

[-] 1 points by lindaloo (-13) 4 months ago

Yes, that's what folks like us can do, but for the people that are now in arrears with a BOA home loan, the path is different. I actually won a mod for a friend of mine. BUT, her finances are so lousy, aint no one else gonna refinance her mortgage so she can bail from them.

I say I won a mod, but after making her 3 trial payments, she got a letter in June saying they were ready to finalize. SIgn, notarize, return. She has now done that 4 times as of a week ago. I am afraid they are still gonna screw her.

Btw, got the ball rolling by emailing the CEO's ofc about 3 wks before the sheriff's sale.
