no problem. We've got a President that has spent $4Trillion dollars that he doesn't have.

I see no problem, and, after all, its ONLY a couple million.

Good for them...flee and dont get caught. banks are criminals in their own right, charging $30 for an OD or a wire. Charging for turning in loose change. I received a call from my bank..please stop turning in loose change. Wait, you are a bank, right??? Why should I have to roll the coins. Plus all the fl;agrant spending by bank CEOs. Good luck.....but I believe they will be caught eventually,

Yeah, it will cost even mnore to clean up bushy's mess. Get used to it.
What gets me is $$$ going to banks that allowed their CEOs spa visits on plane rides on the bail out $$$. That is treason as far as I am concerned.

If that kind of money was put into my bank account I would OF COURSE return it. Just deposit it in my account and I will prove it.

Love this story.
Finally some working people screwing a bank instead of the other way around.

They were only doing what the game Monopoly taught them. Bank error in your favor, collect! Though I suppose it didn't say anything about running.

A bit of irony I have noted over the years:

Carter presided over horrid gasoline prices and inflation, introducing the "misery" index because everyone really wanted to know how unhappy they were, and being eaten alive by the Iran hostage crisis.

Reagan exploded your national debt, spending the USSR into collapse as he replaced a jar of peanuts with jellybeans.

Bush kept on spending and everyone read his lips wrong (aka he lied) and he was soundly spanked by the voters.

Clinton actually left a budget surplus, I think he was more conservative than his two predecessors but he did a good job of handing your factory jobs over to Mexico with NAFTA.

Bush II presided over the largest USA government expansion in history, and the debt just exploded.

Obama in three months outspent all his predecessors.

Three dems, three republicans... an incompetent democrat, three wasteful republicans, a somewhat conservative democrat who got in trouble over a blow job, and a die hard socialist who has been lauded by Communist leaders as the gate keeper to a radical left turn in the USA.

Doesn't this prove that your parties don't matter, that for the most part, the partisan blather has kept you at each other's throats for decades while your leaders bend you over and push it into your ass without any vasoline?

Nevertheless, the democrats will continue to think as instructed by democrat leadership, republicans will continue to think as instructed by republican leadership, and unless you break that paradigm, the parties are going to break you. They already broke your country, Obama admitted the USA is out of money.

Is this the "change" you voted for?

That's the point I was making,and meanwhile as I see it, the "average" American is quite serious about barracking his neighbour over which political party he supports! It makes no difference in the wider view,the US (and world) is run by some shady characters who are gradually moving towards the main aim.....One World Government!
As mentioned by DoP, toe the line Obama,or draw your last card!
