  • Sports Takeout: Ibrahim Abdul-Matin says all eyes will be on college football this weekend when powerhouses Florida and Alabama go head-to-head for the SEC championship.

BofA has permission to pay back 45 billion? You have got to be kidding me! They need permission to pay back that which is not theirs! Only in the US of A. I wonder why it is that we sheeple who have our mortgages, car loans, student loans and credit cards with Bank of America don't need their permission to pay that back. It must be grand to be a robber baron in in this country!
