The Current Crisis, Continued

"We're just shocked that Bank of America, after receiving $25 billion in bailout money, not only do they refuse to extend credit to companies but, to add insult to injury, they don't allow these companies to fulfill their legal obligations to their workers,"

Well yeah, that's pretty much it.  I'm thinking this is just the beginning of workers turning into factory-occupying radicals.

UPDATE:  Bank of America says "Uh-uh.  Not OUR fault.  Don't blame US!"  What's that old saw about bankers?  They're happy to lend you an umbrella on a sunny day but quick to ask for it back when the rain starts?

UPDATED UPDATE:  Illinois's embattled Governor raises his head outta his foxhole and spies an opportunity.  Oops.  Perhaps "spies" is a poor word choice.

It appears that there may be some discrepancy in what the workers are reporting vs. Bank of America's perspective and position.

I guess we shall see as the truth comes out.
