American Express
Contest Directions: Days ago American Express asked and received the Fed's approval to become a bank, so that it can use part of the $700 billion bailout amount. Now it wants $3.5 billion out of the $700 billion bailout pie. Amex reasoning for such request is - "we lost a lot of money due to missed credit card payments. Now it's only fair to get part of this money back from taxpayers."
Photoshop anything related to American Express company. Some examples are: showing what other type of company AmEx can become (fast food chain? movie company?, etc.) and what products it will offer (meal cards, stamps, etc.); show creative uses for American Express credit cards if the company goes bust, design a new AmEx company logo or new name, design new credit cards for American Express, photoshop movies sponsored or produced by AmEx. These are just some ideas. Here's a good example by Mundo.

        • The Coup D’E tat of the United States Press

          Red 'X' Society·Wednesday, March 1, 2017

          by Tracy Mapes

          SACRAMENTO,California--In America, it has long been held that there is a sacred bond between the United States Government, and the People of the United States.

          That bond is the unbendable document called the Constitution of the United States, and, as I am about to embark, this bond has been broken by the Corruption of Our Central Bodies of Government, Executive, Legislature, Judiciary, Agency, and the Press.
          This means that while Americans have been kept busy with the non-essential, info-tainment of the Press, both Print and Broadcast, these bodies along with all key positions in the Government of the United States, have been subverted and replaced with loyalist Felons and Street Prostitutes as legitimate Journalists, Political Appointees, Judges, and even Entertainment Personnel.

          This means that along with the Silent Subversion of the 1st Amendment of Our Constitution, a facade of disinformation has cloaked the atrocity with unfounded fears of the necessity to increase the National Security risks assessed to convince the Citizens of the United States that loss of their personal freedoms, restriction on travel, and the production of “Fake News” in warranted to maintain the Secrecy of the Criminal Enterprise Our Government has become.

          I became aware of this situation in quite an unconventional manner.

          As I have described over the past 8 years, to United States Government agencies including the Department of Defense, Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Congress, the United States Senate, and News Media alike, without material response, I met over 150 Pimps, Prostitutes, and Individuals involved in criminal acts in the related to the before mentioned street crimes on the streets of Sacramento, California during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s.

          Since my involvement with these persons over a 7 year period, 2 of the persons involved in narcotics use and prostitution have become Presidents of the United States of America.

          With the addition of a First Lady, a Supreme Court Justice, State Senator, City Mayor, and County District Attorney of Sacramento, there are nearly 150 persons that have been placed, appointed, hired, or infiltrated into the Newsrooms of America.
          One could look at this as a miracle of some great proportion, but in fact, the pattern sings of racketeering, espionage, and the criminal manipulation of All Avenues of Control and Command of the United States Government and the Media.

          And, after engaging in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America ...I find this UN-Acceptable!
          The Red ‘X’ Society was formed as an Idea, to redress this wrong, and hold those accountable for this Horrific Tragedy of United States Government Miss-Management, and urge All Americans to display the Red ‘X’ until this matter is resolved in accordance with the written word of the U.S. Constitution.

        • Great work, but I am not sure whether raining is really needed.
        • The size of the legionairs is slightly to big compared to the rest of the people.
        • I liked the mood it had with the rain, still good now though
        • Me likes the edited version better
          Bright side of life now
        • I can see I've started a debate here! I put the rain in a) to practise and b) because it blended the legionnaires in slightly better, I thought. (And then I liked the mood, but then I AM English!) Are they too big? Or are they giant Romans
        • thats a tuff chop to pull off. I think the perspective on the soldiers is at a different eye level making them appear larger. It seems very difficult to pull off perfectly because chopping a whole legion seems like a bitch in itself, let alone matching the perspective. Good job and 9.8 for effort. U can't please everyone, so as long as your happy with it.
        • Thanks, Slixter! I guess I do like to try the impossible sometimes! (My other half said "Only you would try to stick a whole Roman legion in there!!")

It is one of 30 stocks, which include Dow Jones Industrial Average. Usually, American Express is shortened as "Amex". Welfare work American Express is one of the provider companies of the American Enterprise Institute. American Express, one of the world leaders in credit card services, will be transformed into bank holding company, informs The New York Times. Banking Regulations Committee of Federal Reserve System, USA has already given approval for changing the status of financial organization. Actually, nothing changes for clients of American Express - future bank will, as usual, cater to the issued cards. Organization can considerably expand the list of financial services, rendered by it & due to this, it can have new more reliable source of income. Besides, American Express can apply for governmental credit of $3.8 billion. For last year, stocks of American Express have gone cheaper by 60.35%. On November 12, 2008, capitalization of financial organization constituted $25.98 billion. To cut the expenditure, American Express, at the end of October 2008, took a decision to sack 10% of its employees & to freeze the compensation of the directors. These measures will allow the company to save $1.8 billion in 2009. American Express is not the first organization in USA, which has decided to become diversified bank. On September 21, 2008, Federal Reserve permitted investment banks "Goldman Sachs" & "Morgan Stanley" to change the legal status from independent investment banks to bank holding company. As a result of the conversion, former investment banks can create commercial divisions, which will operate client accounts.
