Legalize loan sharks and let them take the risk. Oh, thats right, we are doing that.

I think there is something wrong when BOA charges me 19.99% interest and my local bank charges me 8.89%. Same risk, double the return. I think the only difference is that BOA is now loaning me back the money I bailed their asses out with. Well not anymore, I canceled. Every one needs to shop around and no one needs to pick the picture on their cards.
