    Considering all the court cases the Big Banks lost involving mortgage fraud, there is no reason less regulations are on anybody's table,,but amazingly,,,,it is.

    Not enforcing the law is even worse wouldn't you say?

    There are more ways to skin a skunk than one. If each one of us moves our money and business to a local, small bank or credit union some of those bankers will need to get a real job. Charging interest on loans of ten, fifteen and twenty percent or more, charging fees for services once free and paying interest of less than one percent maybe not be criminal but if it look like a loan shark and acts like a loan shark you can bet it's a loan shark.
