Bank Transfer Day is Upon Us.
Bank Transfer Day is today! It’s a celebration, bitches!
According to the Credit Union National Association, more than 650,000 consumers nationwide have joined credit unions in the past four weeks for a total of $4.5 billion in new credit union savings accounts. In response, Bank of America already scrapped its plans to charge $5 a month for debit cards.
Behold the power of the consumer![transcript after the jump]
The fifth of November,
The war with the banks we fought;
We know of no reason
Why the war of this season
Should ever be forgot.
Anonymous and their companions,
Did much of the scheme derive,
To shut down the banks and elitists,
No more may they deprive.
Nine thousand Proxies our ships outflow,
To force the banks overthrow.
But, by the one percent powers provocateurs dispatch,
Against the 99% game set match.
They give us our cake,
Unemployment and heartache.
They think they have won,
Wait for round two.
The better for us,
And worse for the few.
A rope, a rope on some soap,
In the pen you’ll find them.
A world washed down,
And a maximum security prison to hold them.
Holloa World! Holloa World! Set sail upon our ships!
Holloa World! Holloa World! Oceans filled with scripts!
Hip Hip Hoooray!
Anyon else feel like they’re living in a movie that’s part Children of Men, part V for Vendetta, and part The Muppets Take Manhattan? Just me then?
Okay.[cross-posted at ABLC]
