Considering the govt. controlled Bank of America;

I'm still using Quicken.  Everytime you start up Quicken some nonsense about
Quicken being "powered by Bank of America" appears.  That BOA got billions
of our dollars so that their crummy business could continue (instead of
failing as it should) is the primary reason I want to get away from those
illegitimate children (get it?) at Quicken.

Let the weak banks fail.  Free markets work.  Govt. managed and controlled
markets FAIL.  Privatize gain.....socialize loss.  That's their motto.
