This was the best bank I have ever dealt with. I hope the employees still have a job.

Nothing will change. Just a big bank buying a little bank. Employees you normally see everyday should still be there. Upper management folks may not be there but the change over will be learing the operations of the new guys.

This bank was a class act and is now a victim of the economy and a horrible President/Administration. The FDIC's lame structure and policies show no foresight to a bad economy. Also this Administration's bail out of large banks was a huge failure. Their focus should have been to bail out the smaller banks - that's where it could have made a huge difference. Ready for 2012 - Bahbye Obama!

Truth of the matter is, Obama is a total fraud. The American people better wake up and vote him and his ilk out of there or their valued freedoms will be history.
Obama is from that Chicago group of socialist evil doers who lack substance, morals, intelligence, and love for America. They are power whores who have nothing to do better than to take from those who produce and give it to some no good, useless, parasitic eliteist government bureaucrat, or a so called socially deprived segment of the community, whining their way to prosperity on our backs.
As far as the fed's view of banking goes. Have you noticed that plenty of money is being printed, interest rates are historically low but no one can get a loan? The government has no trust in you to ever pay it back, that's why. They have loaned out billions to home owners who could never pay it back to social engineer whole neighborhoods right into the ground! Remember ACORN, remember the Community Organizer named Obama, black mailing bankers into oblivion?
It will take changing the Senate, including bums like Isakson and Chambliss (RINOS) and every DemocRAT alive, in order to ever enjoy a free and growing America again. Americans had better get serious in the next election and be looking to vote in a true patriot, Cain, Palin, West. No more career politicians, please, no more!!!!!!!

“Good to Go!!”

Good to see someone else with their eyes open about what is coming around the bend, course you are posting on the wrong site since most here only care about the rude office personal at school or the coach being arrested, nothing of real substance, noticed since the election is drawing near any comments about it do not exist.
