Commie Bankers

The Tribune-Review's Eric Heyl informs us that a major US banking concern regularly donates loads o' money to high-profile left-wing causes such as ACORN and the Tides Foundation. It seems that Citigroup is run by lefties with a lot of money to throw around.

What? You thought rich bankers couldn't possibly be in tune with the likes of John Kerry and Teresa Heinz? Guess again. Stick that stereotype in your pipe and blow bubbles with it.

Citigroup's press releases end with this informative description of the company's divisions:

Citigroup, the leading global financial services company has some 200 million customer accounts and does business in more than 100 countries, providing consumers, corporations, governments and institutions with a broad range of financial products and services, including consumer banking and credit, corporate and investment banking, securities brokerage, and wealth management. Major brand names under Citigroup's trademark red umbrella include Citibank, CitiFinancial, Primerica, Smith Barney and Banamex. The Citigroup Foundation focuses its grants primarily in three areas: financial education, educating the next generation, and building communities and entrepreneurs.

Thank you. Now I know that I should never invest my money in anything bearing those brand names. Citibank constantly sends me credit card solicitations in the mail, but I just keep tearing them up and tossing them out. And I hope they keep sending them to me so that I can discard them, just because of the cost to the company. It's small, but it is something.
