    The United States levied a fine on a bank in France for doing business with nations the US said not to. http://www.westernjournalism.com/france-wants-get-rid-us-dollar-know-problem/#HQpYyvSZdcjTTlMQ.01 Not only are we ****ing every other nation in the world off, now we are pushing our allies...

    I hope someone can help me. I was pre-approved for a mortgage-money is not the issue. Once the bank found out it was a cottage, the antics began. Its a 20 minute 4x4 drive from a seasonally maintained road. Pristine lake with only 3 owners on it. We plan on keeping it locked down. Cement block...

    Interesting video talking about the current financial situation.

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/cutline/bbc-victim-hoax-no-yes-men-154724196.html Either a hoax interview, or someone being very, very brave, with a warning that I'm sure is going to fall on deaf ears.

    Following is a link to yet another example of the economy swirling the toilet bowl. We as a society have learned nothing. This is wrong on SO many levels. http://www.softgreenglow.com/wp/?p=10814

    Not one politician over here has answered the question "Why are the Irish people being sacrificed to bail out private banks". Not one word. Ireland is on the brink of a chasm of which there is no return, sold out by people who wont even answer why its being done. Eternal debt and rule by the...

    8 billion in losses for one year, increased productivity, 75million man hours cut and still so inflated and inefficient in managing money. Bankrupt in one year without help. The same help we give airlines, banks, insurance companies, car manufacturers and small countries. There has to be a...

    I certainly believe the problems we are seeing now are beyond left wing or right wing as they are two sides of the same coin serving the same masters. This video I stumbled on puts it in perspective and done in quite an amusing way... Talk about mortgage indebted home owners never going on...

    I like Peter Schiff and While the network(s) made fun of him in '06, later they realized he was spot on all he predicted. Anyway, here's the outlook from the Schiff Report; not too rosy and good comparison to the Greece economic turmoil. Would've liked to hear if he thinks Greece, Portugal and...

    I find that I do not always enjoy talking to bankers. I had to fill out a bunch of forms for a bank. I sent the forms in, and yesterday we got an automated call back that I am supposed to call this number to straighten out some issue. I called them back. I went through their voice...

    I have a friend who owns a few businesses and who also is a good candidate for receiving inside info about some smaller local banks because of his acquaintances, and he was telling me that within the next 2-3 months we would be seeing a couple bank companies in our region shutting down. That...

    When one has investments (as in CD, IRA, mutual funds, etc), saving accounts, checking accounts and the financial/banking system is about to collapse... When would it be the time to get these out for your survival? is it even safe to get this money out or is it better not to touch it? I have...

    Hey guys, I ran across some info that came from what I believe to be a fairly reliable source. They said that in like 20 something more days, the FDIC was going to shut down several banks. I don't know if they can do that or not. I heard this from an Arkansas banker and don't know if it is only...
