You think the JPMorgans and the Goldmans and the Citis give a baker's fuck about you? Think again! They're just using you. Won't remember your name in the morning, if in fact they don't sneak out in the middle of the night. I'm sorry but it's a fact.

In an e-mail sent in late June to state bank trade association executives, Camden Fine, head of the Independent Community Bankers of America, said his group wouldn’t publicly take a position on the bill. Still, he said small bankers would lose important exclusions they fought for and “are turning the gun on themselves” if they work to defeat the legislation ahead of a final Senate vote this month. “Do you really think Wall Street mega firms give a rat’s ass about small banks? Hell no,” wrote Fine, who represents about 5,000 community lenders. “They only care about the credibility small banks can wield on Capitol Hill to get them out from under this rock.”
