These pension funds are public employee union funds, lots of money in communist hands.

And I might add, it doesn’t matter if they lose money because the taxpayers have to pay the public employee pensions anyway.

Simply put, this is how tyranny operates.

I would add that Gun Manufactures and Ammo Manufacturers should not do business with law enforcement of Chicago as well.

They can just protect themselves with what they allow the common man to have.

I work in the gun industry, and just got this email thread yesterday:

"I am going through the same thing with heartland payment credit card systems, they are trying to force me to shut down our website and are freezing funds, also heard Bank of America is doing the same thing

NOTICE: We are unable to process credit card transactions at this time. Intuit Merchant Services has told us that they will NOT process anymore transactions and may put a freeze our accounts because we sell firearms related products. I was told that they are backed by Chase Banks. DO NOT conduct business with these financial institutions if you care about the Constitution of the United States, the Second Amendment or your RIGHTS as a firearms owner. We, as firearms owners, are under attack. I wonder how many of these anti-gun banks received Bail-out money from the current administration?

We are working on getting set up with a firearm friendly processor and hope to be back on line to serve you quickly. Thank You for understanding."

Most of the new bank regulation from Obama and the rats looks like it is designed to run community banks like mine out of business by putting us at a vast competitive disadvantage to large banks, eliminating revenue sources, cutting margins and running up compliance costs unbelievably. Eventually, small business and the economy will suffer tremendously because of it. The pace of Obama’s destructive change has picked up considerably since the beginning of the year. . . infuriating . . . and a lot more is on the way. I honestly do not know how we can survive long term.

We had a lending bank associated with a local insurance company that closed. The rules and regulations were just too much to deal with.

I’ve been using a credit union for 30 years. Hopefully they are under the radar of those who wish for nationalized banks.

That is another reason they are anxious to implement the Teresa Ghilarducci plan to grab your 401K and roll it into a centrally managed national pension plan.

It will be CALpers on steroids. They’d be the largest single stockholder in virtually every company and thus have them all by the shorthairs.

Credit unions typically do not cater to small businesses. I am absolutely convinced that Obama and his band of evil cut-throats are bound and determined to run small businesses in the ground . . . including small farmers and farms.

Sounds like a good investment to me, if you can pay it off quickly so they don’t get a lot of interest revenue.

Do you think emanuel might know where all the criminals with guns do their banking? I suspect he has no problem with that.

Everyone acts like this ballerina is such an imposing tough guy.

Does he have Kevlar skin or something?

Seems like he's just as mortal as anyone else when it comes down to it.

From your link (also look up NRA-NCU mentioned there)

“To: EXCH54FE

The NRA has a special member benefits section set up just for this type of situation. They offer NRA member stores discounted credit card processing services and also Gun store insurance services. Pass this on to your local gun shop owner they may need it.

Never had a credit card in my life, so I had never explored anyone’s policy on such.
I had decided to move my business acct when they messed with McMillan late last year but have put it off til I found the bank that would give me a small business loan at a favorable rate before I moved my account. Well I’ve found my new bank and I’m about to leap.

The tourism income to Chicago is over $12Billion/year.

My family is boycotting Chicago, for life. Or, until the political leadership begins respecting and defending the rights of the people as protected by the Constitution. We will never spend a dollar in Chicago for tourism of any kind...even to the point of intentionally buying gas and soft drinks outside of Illinois, in Indiana and/or Wisconsin, before we drive the loop around Chicago going one way or the other. Let that city shrivel up and rot (faster).

I suggest that anyone and everyone who supports citizens rights do the same.

Can any Free Republic legal types tell us if it is legal for a Government representative to use the power of his office to threaten and intimidate a legal business activity?
