Is there a solution to our Banking System?
All we need to do is take the present banking system and just tweak it one step further, and then it will be fixed!
A pic of me back in 1981
I've known this solution for 30 years!
My banking solution project began in 1981 when I was working for a major bank in Davis, California. On Wednesday, December 9th, 1981 Sacramento's major newspaper, THE SACRAMENTO BEE, printed an article about my banking solution on the front page of their Business Section!
And here's my Op-Ed article that ran in the DAVIS ENTERPRISE on 11/27/81:
That's right, I said Davis, California!
That's the Davis that has been in the news where the police officer pepper sprayed the peaceful Occupy protestors!
I worked in Davis, California in 1981
at the local Davis BofA!
Davis was where my banking solution came to me!

The solution to our banking system involves establishing One Single Bank that will function very close to the very same way that our existing system of banks function!
But this One Bank will never need to foreclose!!
That's right, I said this One Bank would
NEVER NEED TO FORECLOSE!!!
Page 2 of this website will get into explaining & answering all the details!

My 2011 Letter from President Obama:
President Obama has been re-elected, but his economic policies are not going to prevent our country from going over an impending fiscal cliff..... last year I wrote to the White House about my Banking Solution, and I received this "thanks for writing" letter from President Obama on October 4th, 2011:
Yes, I am VERY SERIOUS about this Banking Solution!

"Occupy Wall Street"
This protest began in September, 2011 in New York...
...and now thousands of people have protested in
hundreds of cities in over
80 countries around the world!!
Millions of people want a solution to
the economic system!!!

In 2007 there were 500,000 foreclosures.
In 2008 there were 1,000,000 foreclosures.
In 2009 there were 2,800,000 foreclosures with 5,500,000 households delinquent.
In 2010 there were 2,900,000 foreclosures.
3,000,000 more homes were in danger....and in 2011 there were something like 1,887,800 foreclosures....
* * *
In 2008: 25 banks failed.
In 2009: 140 banks failed.
In 2010: 157 banks failed & 700 banks were "at risk of failure."
In 2011 -- 92 banks failed.
In 2012 -- 49 have failed so far....
(And this is just in America)...
The system doesn't work any more!
Everyone around the world knows it!
It needs to be **CHANGED**!!!
Please read this entire webpage and I will try
to answer most of the big questions about
how my solution can be possible!

Where do I live now?
I grew up in California (where my father was once the president of the state-wide organization of finance directors in 1974) -- currently I live in East Tennessee near Dolly Parton's DOLLYWOOD theme park.
Dolly grew up in the "back woods" of Tennessee, and I'm sure she was familiar with outhouses... so I'm sure she can appreciate this 2-story Outhouse that perfectly illustrates the plight of the poor people in this country and around the world...
More on this later....

I contacted the Sacramento Bee Newspaper
In 2011 I recontacted the Sacramento Bee Newspaper and told them that their paper printed my banking solution article 30 years ago... yes, they were a bit stunned by that... and you would think that they would be very interested to hear from me and jump at the chance to do a follow-up article, right?
The current Business editor's name is Mary Lynne Vellinga, and on November 3, 2011 she told me, "No, we will not do an article about your banking solution."
"Because I do not feel that it is appropriate to run 'speculative' banking solution articles in the Business section."
Even though they *DID* do an article 30 years ago!!!
Ms. Vellinga did not even look at my website, she told me on the phone that all she did was look up the 1981 article -- and from that alone she decided NOT to do another article.
The entire world wants to hear "new ideas," and I can't even get an article written up in the very same newspaper that ran an article about me in 1981??
* * *
I contacted the Davis Newspaper
November 22, 2011 -- I called the Davis Enterprise Newspaper and informed their editor Debbie Davis that their paper also printed my banking solution article 30 years ago... and Debbie told me on the phone that she has been working there for 32 years, so she was actually there when my Op-Ed article ran -- I told her my website address, and she said she'd check it out...
Where the Sacramento Bee editor had "rejected" doing another article, I thought that Debbie would surely approve of doing a new article...
The Occupy Davis protests have continued, and millions of people still want to hear that there's a solution to our Banking System -- so on Monday, November 28th around 4pm in the afternoon I called Debbie back...
Debbie told me that she had NOT looked at my website, and she was NOT going to do another article!
Great. No article again.
I'm sorry to say this, but there are some really stupid newspaper editors out there making some really stupid decisions about what will or won't be in their newspapers.
It seems that neither editors of the Sacramento Bee or the Davis Enterprise give a damn about millions of people being foreclosed on and losing their homes, nor that the entire Banking System of the modern world is about to collapse -- or that I might have a solution to prevent it.
In case any of you reading this really DO care,
please keep reading this website!

Want a "Wonderful Life"?
All I'm trying to do is believe that miraculous things are possible, like in Frank Capra's wonderful classic film IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE...
...where George Balley ran his wonderful Building & Loan bank...
...but instead the entire banking system in this country seems to be under the control of this guy...

Is it "Impossible"?
Some economists may say my banking solution is impossible...
Lots of things that people thought were once impossible have been accomplished!
For example, this was in the March 30th, 1981 issue of PEOPLE magazine:
Every physicist in the world said that it was "impossible" to ever create a single-surface mirror that would not reverse the image --
David Emil Thomas did the "impossible"!
In 1975 he began experimenting with soap bubbles, and he noticed that his hair was parted on the proper side in their reflection -- this physics instructor did his master's thesis on the optical properties of curved surfaces, and in 1978 he was awarded a patent for his invention:
A MIRROR THAT DOES NOT REVERSE THE IMAGE
OF WHATEVER SITS IN FRONT OF IT!
This is how things happen in this world -- for centuries people say that mankind will never fly, but then one day someone makes a airplane that DOES fly -- all the physicists in the world said no one will ever make a single-surface mirror that doesn't reverse the reflection, but then one day David Emil Thomas makes one!
Lots of economists may say that my Banking Solution project is "impossible" -- but I know it can be done!

Take a look at the dollar sign . . .
. . . and take a look at what it becomes when you "complete" the diagram by drawing in a few more vertical bars and finish drawing in the circle started by the "S" shaped curve! It becomes the Oriental YIN and YANG symbol BEHIND BARS ! (The "yin yang" symbol represents "man and woman")....
Humanity has been entrapped by the power of "money" long enough -- and it's time to put together a banking system that places the importance of PEOPLE over the importance of all those numbers on our banks' computer systems!

Want America to "Go Green"?
The One Bank would make it really easy!!

Are you "Waiting for Superman"?
This documentary film showed the sad state of our education system, and how the whole world wants to be "saved" by Superman...
My banking solution includes being able
to "save" our education system!
* * *
Germany has been in the media for being one of the few countries in Europe that is somewhat controlling its debt and its spending -- the Sept. 2011 issue of VANITY FAIR ran this article -- but does Germany have the "solution" for the world's economic systems?
Only my "One Bank" would cure our banking system!

Is Social Security a "Ponzi Scheme"?
Social Security was set up in the 1930s to "do the right thing" for the elderly -- if it in any way resembles a Ponzi Scheme, it was a NECESSARY Ponzi Scheme! Yes, in the future the Social Security System will be over-burdened supporting the huge number of 1950's Baby Boomers who have reached the retirement age. Why won't the system work? Because our culture decided to abort millions of potential tax-paying people out of existence who would have been here to be paying into Social Security (there have been around 50 million legal abortions since 1960)...
February 11, 2011 The New York Times
"The Obama administration wants to replace Fannie and Freddie with some new form of federal subsidy. But House Republicans campaigned on the repeated promise to liquidate the companies, and to allow nothing similar to take their place. And some big private banks say they would like to get the job of bundling mortgages together... The current mortgage lending system relies heavily on Fannie and Freddie, which buy loans from banks and other lenders, then sell packages of those loans to investors with a promise to cover any losses. Fannie and Freddie now buy about two-thirds of new mortgage loans. Nine out of 10 new mortgages receive a government guarantee of some kind. As a result, calls for change are often accompanied by acknowledgments that now may not be the moment. Freddie Mac reported that it lost $4.1 billion in the third quarter of 2010..."Everyone wants to fix the current system!!!
But they just don't know how to do it!
What would happen if Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac IMMEDIATELY GOT THEIR MONEY BACK the very moment they made each and every mortgage loan?
THAT'S WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IN MY TOTALLY BENIGN
"ONE BANK" SYSTEM!

I spoke at the Occupy Knoxville gathering on 11/11/11
But where were the people???...
Thousands of people were 2 blocks over at the big 11/11/11 Veteran's Day Parade, but they didn't care one iota about attending the Occupy Knoxville gathering!
So NONE of them ever heard my talk.
Ah, but the Knoxville newspapers did interview me....
The media reported my talk, but they did NOT print a close-up pic of me NOR did they mentioned my Banking Solution website address in their articles!!!
Can you read my signs?? No??
Whew, I've been at this for 30 years -- AND I WON'T STOP TRYING TO SHARE THIS SOLUTION -- the whole country still wants to hear ideas that could lead to a solution of our economic system!
I'll say it again:
This solution is the ONLY total solution!!!"
