If the banks think they have it tough now with the swarms of Lilliputian pro se defendants standing up to them, think about how it’s going to be when sophisticated pension funds and their large law firms come after them. Oh, yeah, and let’s not forget those prosecutors with their open criminal investigations, yum.

A week and half ago, the Senate took up the Bank reform act called the Kaufman-Brown SAFE amendment which would have broken up the monopoly of the largest banks.
MSNBC commentator Dylan Ratigan called out the Senators who voted against this bill and berated them as belonging to the ‘Bankster’ Party.
He listed this group of Senators in an article on Huffington Post.
A few days later, one of the Senators who were on the Bankster party list was somehow mysteriously removed from Ratigan’s Huffington Post story.
What’s interesting is that this Senator is involved in a heated Primary, and the very same day as his ‘Nay’ vote, that very Senator emailed his plan to ‘reform’ Washington.
The real question here is – Does Dylan Ratigan know that his article was changed or did a Huffington post editor change it without his permission?
And what did the Senator whose name was removed know and what was his involvement?

This week on Huffington Post’s Denver page, Michael Bennet posted an article – Close the Revolving Door, which talks about his efforts to reform the Lobbyist ways of Washington.
It would seem the readers from Colorado did not take comfort in the Senator’s words in light of his recent votes.
I have a friendly tip for Senator Bennet’s staff, next time your Candidate writes an article, remember to turn off the “Comments” section of his article – which Huffington Post allows diarists to do.
The resulting comments in response to Bennet’s post can only be summed up as ‘devastating’ for a candidate trailing his Republican opponents and facing a grassroots backed primary challenge from Andrew Romanoff.

Why ShametheBanks.org? Because it’s been over a year since the Obama Administration and Treasury announced the Making Home Affordable plan, also known as HAMP. The plan was supposed to potentially help nearly six million struggling homeowners by lowering monthly mortgage payments and in some cases reducing principal.
