How good it is to be in banking right now? The mortgage and banking industries made poor business decisions. Our corporatocracy decided that banks deserved to be bailed out of their poor business decisions to the tune of $700 billion dollars (taking the financial industry as a whole). The banks then decided to simply “sit” on that money instead of investing it in you or I (in some cases irrespective of our credit worthiness), and now banks want to charge us to use our debit cards and to hold what little money we have.
I say goddamn it’s great to be in banking.
