Nation’s 10 Biggest Banks Could Lose $185 Billion As Customers Move Money



New research shows the nation’s 10 biggest banks could stand to lose as much as $185 billion in deposits over the next year as the movement to move money to credit unions and community banks expands.

Out of a trillion dollars, how much do we spend nationally on;
1 Cell phone service
2 fast food
3 tobacco
4 alcohol
5 snack foods
6 cable television service
7 lotteries
8 Print news media
9 video games
10 dvd purchase and rental

and what would be the effect of us boycotting all of these seemingly non essentials, for a strategic period of time ?

Of course the basic goal for the future is that all of these venues that we spend money on, be from Black suppliers and vendors,

but in the interem, there is great power in unilateral boycotts in a capitalist corporatocracy, during times of economic down turn.

For instance what is we Occupied Black Friday, across the 50 states, and
really made it Black!

As in we refuse at least (75% of our 34 million regardless of economic status) to shop for that entire weekend, or spend a dollar outside of Black shops and stores?

With a trilion dollars spending power,
we have the capacity to make Black Friday
truly Black for us but Red for the corporatocracy,
our books in the Black from savings and buying Black,
their books in the red from the lack of our billions in that most important sales period for them in the entire year

“The Degree To Which You Resist Is The Degree To Which You Are Free.”

by Phil Rockstroh

......."The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed." — Steve Biko


Since birth, most of us have been enveloped by the consumer state's commercial hologram. Almost every daily act we perform and attitude we evince is in some measure determined by the dictates, demands and the incessant, commercial come-ons (the defacto propaganda) of the corporate state e.g. from what time you rise in the morning, to the food you eat, to what you clothe yourself in, to how you spend your days, to what time you go to sleep at night, to what stories you are audience to--the cultural myths you have internalized--by means of mass media saturation, to the manner you celebrate festivals and holidays, to how your illnesses and of those around you will play-out, even the circumstances of how you will approach and succumb to your death.
Because these are the waters in which we swim, most will accept societal and cultural circumstances as a given…believing, for example, that when they posit a political utterance that the opinion expressed has been formed exclusively of their own mind, by the exercise of free will.
Accordingly, a large percent of the populace of the U.S. believes consumerism is a form of freedom…that the exercise thereof mainly involves being at liberty to trundle to a mall and be in possession of the right to choose between a big-*** cookie or a giant Cinnabon…that freedom of choice is expressed by over-priced running shoes--or security can be found in a massive SUV.
In this manner, the propaganda campaigns of the corporate/national security state have proven effective at promoting and perpetuating the inequitable status quo in place at the present time. Do not underestimate the well-rewarded, professional con men employed in the criminal enterprise known as "public relations." Remember, these masters of deceit sell wars, fought by the poor, in which, the underclass kill and die for the profits of a ruthless few. War is a money train for the rich and connected but a death wagon for the rest of humankind.
Ready yourself to be buffeted by a barrage of virtual reality blunderbuss--volley after volley of mainstream media launched Big Lies--and the ground fire of social media small distortions. Don't walk unarmed into the line of fire.
Remember this: Most likely, the corporate state has, to some degree, colonized your mind, as it is well on its way to destroying the ecosystem of the entire planet.
Conversely, let your soul occupy you. While there might be an ongoing effort to scour Liberty Park of liberty, they cannot do likewise to your heart without your consent. Turn the tables on them: Evict the corporate occupiers from the public realm within--as all the while, you challenge propaganda whenever it crosses your path…on the streets, at your workplace, at family gatherings, and on social media-- because a lie left unchallenged begins to be accepted as truth. And worse, invades, colonizes and exploits (and often kills) a portion of the soul of the world.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
