The biggest change people can make is to simply not deal with those companies or banks they dont like. Local credit unions are great-they do mortgages and car loans. They also do credit cards. So why all the whining-we all have a choice. Further, consider paying more for US made products, wait till you can pay cash before a purchase. Plant a garden-even if you have a small balcony-its possible. Consider how far the ball can move-or do you not want to make the small sacrifices? BOFA decided to charge 5 dollar fee due to gov regulations-they decided not to charge due to customer flight!-the nanny state created this mess-individually each person can choose to participate or not.

Out of this pending collapse must emerge a quantum leap in representative government or we will end up with the same corruption and public apathy that we have now!!!!

And to get this done right, once again, we need Professor Michael Greenberger on the case, former head of the CFTC; this has been he's mission too since 1999!

For instance: Former Head of U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Professor Michael Greenberger, speaks to Congress in 2008 on the high price of oil--and he's not happy about Energy Deregulations, especially The Enron Loophole:

According to the organizer,

"Together we can ensure that these banking institutions will always remember the 5th of November!! If the 99% removes our funds from the major banking institutions to non-profit credit unions on or by this date, we will send a clear message to the 1% that conscious consumers won't support companies with unethical business practices.

• Research your local credit union options • Open an account with the one that best suits your needs • Cancel all automatic withdrawals & deposits • Transfer your funds to the new account • Follow your bank's procedures to close your account before 11/05" http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=281139538577206

Here is what I suggest: Do not move all of your funds. To put this big of a strain on the system may be irresponsible. Move some of your money out. Just opening an account will send the signal we need.

Million man march won't work. It's been done and you see how much it helped. Need a ten million man march in cities around the country.

Getting 3% of the population to stand up and say we are sick and tired of your bullshit, would mean 9 million people in the streets.
