Bank of America is one of the Big Four of America’s banks (along with Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo). The United States of America has been called “Failmerica” (fail + America) since at least 2008 and Bank of America has been nicknamed “Bank of Failmerica” since at least March 2009.
Bank of America has other unflattering nicknames, including “Bank of Amerika/Amerikkka” (cited in print since at least 1970), “Bunch of Assholes” (cited in print since at least 2000), “Skank of America,” “Bank of Assholes” (both cited in print since at least 2003), “Stank of America” (cited in print since at least 2005) and “Bankster of America” (cited in print since at least 2009). The South Africa-related nickname, “Bank of Apartheid,” has been used since at least 1978, but is dated today.

I pledge allegiance to the Fail of the United States of Failmerica, and to the rich, for which it stands, one nation, with liberty and justice for sale.

Adventures in banking…
So my struggles with banks out here have been long documented in my blog, and after recently moving everything over to Bank of Failmerica I realized that I’ll never get the level of service again that I did when I was back in Salina using First Bank.

Stress test mess
Tomorrow we will hear that the big banks lack the capital to survive a prolonged recession as the stress test report is released. Of course the same banks such as Citi and Bank of Failmerica reported that they had a profit not but a few weeks ago.

i took out another 10,000 RMB last night from BofA in cash, deposited it into a Chinese account and then transferred it over to my gold-trading account and purchased another 28 grams of gold, took my profit and just got back from a nice lunch with the wife paid for with said profit via debit card. everything is current and up to date and i even got a nice text message (free) for each step of the transfer along with a current balance. bank of failmerica is still “processing” the initial withdrawal.
