Keith Olbermann Talks About The Bankers

I was ranting yesterday about the Credit Card Companies' Ads and how offensive they are to anyone who has been dunned into bankruptcy by medical expenses or other emergencies put on a card. When catastrophe strikes and you haven't the ready cash to deal with it, but you do have a credit card in you wallet you've keep up to date and payed off for years-- that's the time you load it up. And then you start getting the calls demanding that you pay your card off now! Well, all you banks that press credit cards on us through deceptive advertising that claim all it takes is a call to make arrangements for lowered payments; you are lying to us again through deceptive advertising. My voice is small and I don't reach that many people with my outrage, but Keith Olbermann does reach a huge audience. Here is one of his wonderful "Special Comments."

I love Keith. He always gets me worked up on his special comments. As much as I like him I do think that the people who really need to hear him are probably watching Fox Noise.

Sad to say, I agree.

i'm glad all those taxes were collected so we can help the poor unfortunate private sector banking and finance industry.

Without having to give out to much personal information my wife is a tax attorney with significant experience in accounting practices.
While it is very wrong to paint with such a broad brush labeling everyone in business, banking, and government corrupt but I heard the term "Cowboy accounting" way back in the 90's. And that term is not meant in a good way.

I will be the first to admit that I understand very little of the procedures the "professionals" use to keep track of the flow of money but from what I can gather what corruption and ponzi schemes that have been exposed are small just the tip of a very big iceberg.
