American Distrust Of Banks Reaches Highest-Recorded Level: Gallup

The Huffington Post Maxwell Strachan

The recession might be officially over, but American views toward the institutions that brought the economic system close to collapse have never been worse.

According to a new poll by Gallup, 36 percent of Americans now say they have "very little" or "no" confidence in U.S. banks, the highest percentage on record since Gallup first started tracking that data. Those saying they have a "great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in banks has also stagnated, stuck at 23 percent for the second straight year, after falling to a low of 22 percent in 2009.

  1. Well, if it's officially over;
    Then I guess It's over

  2. Can someone say "bank runs" they'll be next.

    We are in very very serious troubles friends, time to prepare to hid for a good long time.

    NO, violence is not the answer, just go dark!

  3. If the common person on the street ever had a question as to the morality of the banking system; they need look no further than their own banking experiences.
    The easiest one to evaluate?
    You put $5,000.00 into a savings account
    The bank pays you less than 1% interest to use your money.

    You borrow $5,000.00 from same said bank.
    The bank charges you between 4.75 and 6.75% interest

    For doing what? Less than 1/2 hr. stroking keys on a computer.

  4. we need steroids people. folks you cant tell me hiding in dark will save you from big Albert. it tries well and fails well. I have strong feeling in me that a great magic called spirit will brush the evil over. we will find are children taken by federalism. Senaters should have been better to protect states. Senaters are the only becon we have left. when money packets were pumped out by senaters we should have each been given at least a million dollars. Houses could be saved, business prospers, oil traded for high tech green fuel even if most a scam, traveling would be good, happiness brought back, honor restored in homeland, politicans praised and honored by folks. but folks this didnt happen correctly. so now it is up to every man and able bodied woman to dig trenches and prepare the fault line. cause here comes trouble.
