Fewer Than 25% of Americans Trust the U.S. Financial SystemAmericans are growing even more distrustful of their financial institutions.

The latest figures from the quarterly Chicago Booth/Kellogg School Financial Trust Index showed that only 23% of those surveyed said they trust the country's financial systems, down from 25% in June. The index measures trust in four areas: banks, the stock market, mutual funds and large corporations.

"The findings in this issue reflect what's been reported in the news and demonstrate the fragility of trust many Americans still have in the institutions where they invest their money," said Luigi Zingales, a finance professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and co-author of the Index.

Trust in banks has experienced an even steeper decline, falling from 39% in June to 33% in October. Notably, people were much more inclined to trust local banks and credit unions: More than half of those surveyed said they still had faith in those institutions.

The survey also revealed that nearly 60% of respondents were either angry or very angry about the current economic situation -- the highest level of anger measured since the earliest months of the financial crisis.

This is the 4th edition of the “Wall Alley PIGG” distributed anally and as needed by the PIGGS.
The PIGGS luv to ride the round knobbed anal serpentine trident of Satan.
Once On, they can NEVER get off, except with their JOYOUS pleasure.
That’s why MORE maintenance and buffing as the PIGGS wear out the trident.
Satan is a shareholder of the Wall Alley PIGGS and he shorts them.

Mutual Fund managers across the board stating how stocks “do not move” like stocks anymore.
In fact, they are so suspicious; the average investor stays away from them.

Good Man throughout America and the World invested in Ford and Apple and the Wall Alley PIGGS looked at that cost basis and saw the opportunity to DUMP on America overnight in both cases while Good man rested up for a hard days work again the next day. The Financial PIGGS rode Satans’ anal serpentine trident and frisked those investments at night, much the way the PIGGS sold out America throughout the Red Plague Minnie stration.
Treason is a CORRECT word FOR THESE PIGGS.
America will NOW make U PIGGS WALK THE PLANK into Satan’s spew.
Satan conjures U arrogant, greedy, sodomizing parasitic leeches of the World.
U and He are 1.

Why not ask Mutual Fund Managers at Barron’s and Firsthand Funds why the stocks in their Mutual Funds are being targeted by PIGGS?

Greetings Wall Alley PIGG from Daarck Knight. What we do? We search for wall alley PIGGS. The tools we use to ID crooks are very simple yet extremely effective. Just follow the money. America enjoys the insider busts and MUCH MORE TO COME over THE NEXT 20 YEARS.
Unannounced & frequent RAIDS to continue throughout Wall Street WHENEVER WE DECIDE and as warranted. WITCH HUNTS are part of your never ending PENANCE to America. Continuous surveillance & scrutiny of Equity Managers, CEO’s, and Hedge Funds, those who play against American portfolios…… are ALL being WATCHED and ALL BANKS & Brokerages especially. SUPER HUGE BUSTS COMING – Where? – Throughout the PIGGS DEns
You ALL brought it to yourselves. Did YOU REALLY THINK YOU COULD EVADE AMERICAN JUSTICE??
Goodbye Margin & Credit for shorting. ThaT WILL TAKE REAL CASH now!!! Crooks, Hedge Funds and racketeers will RUN (no more stealing fun!!). No more billionaire criminals. More FBI on NYSE floor and at Goldy’s than in Washington. America ENJOYS the PARANOID, PAINFUL & ADOLESCENT expressions ON THOSE that report the daily money business via TV. So wimpy and pathetic. YOU ARE ALL BEING WATCHED…. Cameras, computer & phone taps everywhere and we’ll continue to snicker (Now that’s a hipper dipper)
And now a sing-along – ALL WALL STREET CRIMINALS NOW SING
To the Tune of Elvis & JAIL HOUSE ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LET’S ROCK
Twas the eve this night, another crook has been found; they’ll spend many a day with the rest in the Madoff DOG POUND (like Guantanamo).
Once CROOKS NOW turned chirping informant SNAKES & shedding their skin, ANYTHING for a BUCK & sodomizing sin.
Who will be first to get the 2011 knock knock – “who’s there?” says the crook. Why - It’s the FBI to get the money YOU criminally took.
So, one or all, walk away, and WHILE you Can… 20 Years of NON-STOP power sweeps, surveillance and busts THEY ARE HERE MAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
America is grateful to all those who have earned honest paychecks. YOU can help & YOU know how.
Just dial – 1-888-crookedmms
Funny looking charts these days – that’s because they are steered and they are the Chart of the PIG. And when U call for The PIG – u get him bitches that spread their legs for Satan & for bastards that swallow his spew
The DK Team (a non-profit organization)
Hot off Press – DK Power Team has GS bald headed monkey NAILED
NYSE MM Financial PIGGS next
PIGGS are getting nailed inside ALL Brokerages RIGHT NOW as the PIGG informants picked up give up their mother for a buck and the laundering being done on American Portfolios comes from the Top of The Red Plague and US administrations WHERE Satan sits.

When the PIGG sets out to pre-meditated and maliciously take down American pie stocks FORD and APPLE , then something is wrong here. To single out Americans 300,000,000 for the “members only” credenza
Hard walking after taking that anal serpentine trident, BUT U WANT MORE and WAR.
Satan blesses U PIGGS and HE accepts PIGGS and their little piglets.
Shake Building Shake
And Fall Buildings Fall
ON ALL.
Mr. President,
Is DRUG testing of ALL financial PIGGS a requirement?
It must be and 90% of the PIGGS LOOSE their PIGG jobs.
How bout ALL those old financial PIGGS that sit at their desk and beat off watching Porn.
