Screw the big banks

Move your money.

It's that simple.
The big banks are going to continue to thumb their noses at the unwashed masses no matter what. They are going to continue to screw us, nickle ($5) and dime ($25) us to death. And they don't care if you go broke or die, all they want is your money.
It is not that hard to move but if enough of us do that the big banks will notice. Probably still won't care but so what. At least you won't be helping to keep them in the business of screwing their customers, one of which is you.
If you keep your money in a big bank move it to a credit union, smaller regional bank  or from what I hear USAA is pretty good, if you qualify. I'm sure there are other banks like USAA, I just don't know of them.

I noticed your comment over at BJ today. You're right.

Somehow the GOPers missed out on that social contract thing. Ayn Rand is their latest goddess.

As for the 'big banks' my wife and I are in the process of moving our money to a local credit union now that they've started offering all the services that Chase and BoA offered (e.g. we don't want to write a raft of checks every month). We are encouraging our fellow retirees to do this.

Happy Thanksgiving!
