I wonder how corporate America keeps pulling off the mass fleecing of American citizens (case in point: WE Energies rate hikes) and the American people just sit and take it. WE Energies penalizes "green" industries and industries who use significant lower amounts of energy, because they are not feeding the corporate pig. We take this. We shouldn't. I believe a federal agency should investigate WE Energies as they are wholly corrupt and consumed by their own greed. What they need is to be broken up.
I wonder how banks justify ARM mortgage rates that are so high, many American families lost their homes because of them, while at the same time, these same banks pay less than 1% interest on savings accounts. The banking industry is so skewed against the consumer, one must check balances everyday to insure no irregularities are occurring in accounts. Further, these banks manipulate data. For example, you have $1 in your checking account. You deposit $20. You then write a check for $19. The bank will manipulate the data to say you wrote the check before you deposited the cash, and charge you a ridiculously unfair fee. Banks manipulate your financial data all the time......and no one seems outraged about this, probably because no one pays close enough attention to what is actually going on in their accounts. That's just stupid these days, when access to your information is readily available any minute of the day. But it is unconscionable that these banks, who already are magnificently wealthy, view their customers as just another mark. The banking industry is a con game.
I think it would be ridiculously easy for the American population to shut down these insatiable greed machines by just refusing to pay.
Refuse to pay your mortgage. Refuse to pay your electric bill. Refuse to pay your credit card statement and finally, refuse to file a tax return after going tax exempt.
There is safety in numbers. When will Americans finally have enough of corporate gouging and start fighting?
