My position as a teacher with the adult school failed not because I was incompetent but because there is no more money for adult education. The school doubled my fees and now my classes are out of sight for retirees. I did try to salvage my lively hood by creating my own business but my expenses and overhead make earning enough hard. I teach hiking classes and there are many free groups that go the same places so the competition is fierce. My knees are not great anymore and I get tired doing three groups but there is no choice for me. I have my mortgage and banking with Citibank and have for years but with all the money I pay in there is not much to show for it except an economy that is so bad my intelligent college educated son can't find a job and he and his girlfriend ate living with me. Why are you so uninterested in the country and people who make you so rich? Margaret Margaret bradford 94523

Dear 1%, The argument that "my money is mine" just doesn't compute. It's patently clear that the wealth of anyone who has millions and billions of dollars has been made from the labor of working people. Terry McClain Berkeley, CA 94703

There is no such thing as a hardship although it’s required for a modification. I had shoulder surgeries on both shoulders that kept me from working for an entire year. Did I get help? No! I fact during the process I was closed out twice. The modification specialist knew that I’d either go into foreclosure or finally heal. They just had to hold up the process long enough for one or the other to happen. Luckily the later happened and I’m back at work. I had enough income to do a modification she just stopped asking for information. Then after a month of not returning my phone calls she calls and says the information is old and will have to close and start all over. She said to send things in when I have 2 paycheck stubs. Now I have 2 paycheck stubs but now I probably earn too much now for a modification. I wasted a whole year trying but at least you didn’t get my house. Mine was a legitimate hardship and should have been acted on. The banks suck and I’m going to occupy wall street. Vern D. Sailand
Mr. Novak, This is supposed to be a get to know each other type of communication. My name is John Lewis. I am not a member of the United Mine Workers and I am not a Congressman from Georgia. I am an unemployed, semi-retired computer programmer and business consultant from Ohio. I have experienced some major setbacks, but I’m sure you’ve heard all the stories. I would like to establish a true dialogue with someone in your position to see what can be done to make our country, the United States of America, a better nation. I am a student of history and I am sure you are aware that the battle over economic issues in this country goes back to the time of Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton believed that men were driven to act in their own interests; whereas Jefferson had a more altruistic view of men and economics. The American Way has almost always been an eclectic mix of the 2 views based on a spirit of give and take. One of the primary areas of disagreement is the place of the corporation in our society. I am NOT an attorney, but I have researched corporate governance just a bit. I know that in many cases the management of a corporation and the dealings with stockholders can create conflict. I also have learned that corporate structures that are employee-owned have been quite successful. I am sure there are examples of failures, too. I would like to start our discussion with you general views of management responsibilities to the board and to stock holders. Are their considerations other than the pure profit motive involved in your management philosphy? Thanks for your attention. I look forward to a reply. Sincerely, John A Lewis
I am a current Wells Fargo home mortgage customer. However, recent events concern me and I would like you to tell me why I should stay your customer. In March of this year, 2000 Wells Fargo employees were fired. This was after $3.4billion profit in Q4 2010. The next month Q1 profit was revealed to be $3.8billion. Congratulations, 2000 people were jobless, but the bank had an extra $400million sitting in its coffers. Q2 and Q3 have been even better at $3.9 and, an astounding, $4.1billion, respectively. So, while the bank continues to layoff thousands of people while posting consecutive record setting profits, why should I care to keep my business in the hands of apparent tyrants? Please, tell me. Tell me that Wells Fargo has seen the error of it’s money hungry, evil ways. Tell me Wells Fargo will begin hiring thousands of people back to the bank. Tell me Wells Fargo cares about its community, even a fraction of the amount it cares about the bottom line. I don’t fault any company with trying to make money. That’s what business is about. However, there comes a point when a company must weigh the cost of the profit. Does the well being of thousands of workers outweigh the need to earn an extra 12% profit? I don’t think so. Do you? Do you really? I bet you would think so if you had lost your job. Please, encourage your fellow executives to reconsider the “money above all else” attitude that so many in the banking industry seem to share. Thank you for taking the time to read my concerns and I hope to hear back from you, soon.

Frank, I am reaching out to you because you are obviously very wealthy and might be looking for a way to pay it forward. I see that you earned $260,000 in compensation from BOA last year. My daughter is $130,000 in debt from student loans. She lives in her grandmother’s house because she can’t afford to pay for both loans and rent. She is expecting to be paying off her loans until she is 40. I was wondering if you could help her to pay off her debt burden. I know it’s asking a lot, but just 50% of one year of your annual BOA income would mean that she would get out of decades of debt. Who knows, with the extra money she has, she might be able to buy a house and use BOA for a mortgage! Let me know if you are interested. Thanks for your support of the 99%!

dear barbara: it must be difficult to endure the badgering of the people concerning the behavior of your corporate person bank of america. as one of the synapses which fires inside that person, i thought that you may like some solutions instead of just harrassment. Heres one: lend money to small business and homeowners again instead of hoarding it. then, they could expand or remodel, as the case may be. that would put people back to work and then all us stinking hippies and anarchists could buy soap and go to work. just a thought. your pal, norm

Dear Mr. Collins, Twenty years ago, my father was a Vice President of Citibank. His office was in the World Trade Center. He died of a stress-related heart attack many years before the tragedy of 9/11. I remember him coming home late every evening after his long commute, and always having time to spend with his children. At his funeral a workmate we had never met spoke about the time my father took time out to help him when he was in dire circumstances, even though the other employee was well below my dad on the corporate ladder. Banks exist to make money, but the level of greed, and the disparity in the distribution of resources in this country isn’t right. The government is not able to help you regulate yourselves, so you must take the lead. I believe that individuals can make a difference, my father taught me that. Please help us. Michelle

My husband paid his credit card ON time and MONTHLY. We got behind and were sending the minimal payments due. They were calling and harassing us constantly. My husband then cashed in his life insurance policy and PAID IT ALMOST COMPLETELY DOWN. What did you do? You lowered his credit limit so we we were still getting hammered with your OVER LIMIT FEES. YOU ARE ALL CROOKS AND LIARS AND THIEVES.

First of all, I have a home loan with B of A. I have a job and I am doing fine. Many of my friends are not. All of them are upset with the Bank Bailouts by the FED. You got trillions in free money… what did we get… nothing. No jobs, No health care, No tax breaks… just misery and a feeling that our Government is owned by the Corporations. You are only one person, but you could make a change. Change Your destiny.
I hope you enjoy handing out bonuses to your employees while my daughter and others are actively serving our country and using their pay for student loan debt. You people make me sick. Please get a clue.

DR CENYTHIA 80041
I was trying to start a small business, but the outlook was grim. Banks haven't been granting small business loans for a while now. So I decided to try investing in property (prices are at an all-time low right now, since predatory lending has thrown millions of homeowners out on the streets). But guess what, banks aren't lending! So I decided to go back to school. But I can't get much aid from our broke government, since education has been pushed to the back of the priorities list (I wonder where most of the money goes?). The price of college has gone up exponentially, and if I could get loans, it would take me the rest of my life to pay them off! Thanks executives, I'm sure you're working hard for your $3000/hour. Sincerely, The future of this country Alina Neacy 96151

Your message here. Tell Wall Street how you feel. Louise Johnson Norcross, GA 30092
Wall Street and some of the banks are directly repsonsible for the sorry state of the American economy. They were out to make a quick buck without considering the impact of their actions on the average American. They created the banking crises, were bailed out, and than gave themselves bonuses! Outrageous! They should be help accountable. I bank at a credit union and am encouraging everyone I know to do the same. Heda Hahn 75230
I’ve seen dollar bills floating around with the message, “This is more than BOA payed in taxes last year”, written on them. Is that true?
