BoA Too Crooked to Fail According to Rolling Stone

I found 3 BoA threads in the forum, two linked below.

2009: Bank of america Ceo to pocket in 53 Million Retirment Payday

2009: Bank of America (BoA) loses $2.24b

It seem appropriate to add this Rolling Stone Article BoA Too Crooked To Fail

If only a fraction of the stuff mentioned in this article I'd still be asking WTF is wrong with this country? There should be no such thing as too big to fail.

At least Bank of America got its name right. The ultimate Too Big to Fail bank really is America, a hypergluttonous ward of the state whose limitless fraud and criminal conspiracies we'll all be paying for until the end of time. Did you hear about the plot to rig global interest rates? The $137 million fine for bilking needy schools and cities? The ingenious plan to suck multiple fees out of the unemployment checks of jobless workers? Take your eyes off them for 10 seconds and guaranteed, they'll be into some **** again: This bank is like the world's worst-behaved teenager, taking your car and running over kittens and fire hydrants on the way to Vegas for the weekend, maxing out your credit cards in the three days you spend at your aunt's funeral. They're out of control, yet they'll never do time or go out of business, because the government remains creepily committed to their survival, like overindulgent parents who refuse to believe their 40-year-old live-at-home son could possibly be responsible for those dead hookers in the backyard.
The modern business ethos: "I'm worth it, you're not, and I'm a glutton!"

So glad I left Wank of America and joined a credit union. BoA are a bunch of crooks.
Barack Obama is not a foreign born, brown skinned, anti-war socialist who gives away healthcare. You're thinking of Jesus.
