    I pulled $40 out of my Wells Fargo account to buy weed. They should be investigated for drug trafficking.

    +FlexDRG ah. Pretending to.understand. Got it. It's someone else's fault. We are 5%of the world's population and consume 40% of the world's goods. Just FYI, most women in China don't won't to have multiple children. *Infer*

    +Merrilou Neigenfind Did I infere it doesn't?And with China ditching that 1 child law... We are screwed even more.

    +John Tate huh? who cares if you think she got embarrased or not, thats not the point Im making, the point is there is no accountability, period. Geez trolls need to go back to school and brush up on reading comprehension

    "I don't know how to answer that question because we weren't."

    BUFU1610 That's overstatement, but the Federal Reserve would be the entity with an existence more consistent with enslavement, not the banks per-se.You should study.

    +DSJ_ oakinW actually, they exist to enslave actually working people.

    Oh thought I clicked on an SNL video. I'll just leave now.

    I think this is a pointless line of questioning. Wells Fargo's incentive is to provide loans they can make a return on, not protect the environment directly. They evaluate environmental risks but only to determine the viability of an investment. The organization that really had the power to prevent environmental harm is the agency that issued the building permit. They are supposed to establish standards to avoid these events. If the costs to meet these standards are too high Wells Fargo won't invest ...

    Unfortunately you’re talking way above the understanding her supporters can manage.

    SNL is really good this season! These sketches are getting so realistic! Oh... wait...

    n todd I don’t watch Fox News, or cnn, or msnbc. I’m perfectly capable of forming my own opinion based on my own values. I happen to fall on more of a conservative side and believe in personal responsibility. I find this video ridiculous because AOC is going after a financial company over what has happened with the money that has been loaned, rather than the ones who messed up with the money. It’s like blaming a bank when someone goes to a bar and uses their debit card and gets a dui. With that being s...

    Willing to take the risk of poisoning the dreaded red man, eh? Sounds like accessory to murder to me!

  • David Dao (Mar 15, 2019)

    why shouldn't auto dealerships who make the loans be responsible for hit and runs?! That's just beyond me!

    +Ryan yeah its sad 90% of these "environmentalists" are complete hypocrites. They talk down anyone who is hurting the environment but in the same hour are utilizing any or all products that do that very same thing.... So sad

    Very poor questioning by @AOC. Very disappointed!

    AOC: “WHY was the bank involved in the caging of children?”

  • brainnjnnn (14 hours ago)

    Criminal Trespassing and illegal immigration is not "asking to move in". So, a woman who takes her child, without the child having a choice, into a place where they are not allowed, and the woman *knows* she is not allowed there, and that going there illegally is a crime, and that crimes have punishments, is the one in the wrong when she is arrested and her son, who now has no place to go, is detained until such a time as it can be sent back to where it belongs, preferably back to family whil...

    BUFU1610 they didn’t have any immigration laws, they had open borders just like democrats want now
