And more recent news on that – FDIC might get loan of $500 Billion (is there ANY safe place to have your money these days?)

 

 

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123630125365247061.htmlAn example of the new promised transparency: Fed Refuses to Release Bank Data, Insists on Secrecy – apparently they are afraid that if the people knew the TRUTH about the banks, the people wouldn’t put their money in those banks….. Hmmmm

5 million people who cannot refinance due to value of home
