Before Wells Fargo was Wells Fargo, it was First Interstate Bank. FIB pissed me off more than 30+ years ago for a problem they refused to make right. So I closed my account and I banned them for life. But you have to keep track. I hated Wells Fargo decades before their crimes against their customers were made public past few years. "Corporations are people too" right? So, I cut people like Wells Fargo out of my life like a cancer. Sorry corporations, there is no redemption for you if you cross the line. And all the mergers acquisitions and rebrandings cannot save you either. I'm talking about you too Bank of America aka Countrywide, et al.

People who tend to view corporations as evil need to be reminded that because we live in a capitalistic culture, our very existence depends on successful corporations. Not only do these companies provide the essential services and products supporting the best lifestyle in the world, many jobs are provided by corporations. Social programs like Medicare, Social Security, and unemployment would not exist were it not for the taxes paid by the corporations, not to mention their employees. All of you bleeding heart liberals who are at war with corporations ought to get a grip.
