The Fed Cracks Down on Gift Card Theft

Gift cards are a favorite something in my family for that someone who it is particularly hard to find a gift for. However, like anything else to do with banks in this country, the gift card has become a piggy bank for the bank – and a screw job for the consumer.

On the MSM it may sound like the ONLY THING the Obama Administration is doing is causing Armageddon by trying to bring this country in line with other first world countries by reforming Health Care…

But there is a lot of other stuff going on.

Fed cracks down on gift card abuses

The Federal Reserve issued new rules on Tuesday to protect Americans from getting stung by unexpected fees or restrictions on gift cards. Read the rest of this entry »

Marching in a Straight Line

Maher gets it right sometimes, and in this one he’s dead on –

Maher is beginning to tap into the rising tide of frustration with the inability of Congress and President Obama to get things done. Eight months into this Presidency, a lot of time, good will, and effort has been squandered.

If the Democrat Party were operated like a well run corporation, right about now, the entire contingent of elected Democrat officials in the House and Senate would be locked into one of those large conference rooms at the Hermitage for a “Come to Jesus” meeting…

And wouldn’t be let out until there was complete agreement on accomplishing a list of 5 objectives in the following 7 days.

And no – you don’t serve coffee, tea, or those cute little canapes until it’s done.

Maher – New Rules 6/12 – Time to Put it In Gear, President Obama

Maher hits this one out of the park! Starting about 3:30 minute in the video, Maher starts to seriously hang some foot in tush about Obama not seriously confronting the banks, the energy companies, and the Health Care industry head on.

You seen the gas prices creeping up over $3.00 a gallon…

In the middle of the worst economic collapse since the 30’s, massive unemployment, and nervousness resulting in a 20% drop in consumption…

And the price is going up?

F this bull about listening to the syncopated squealing by the Reich in this country – President Obama. You won by a landslide, and the Dems are going to win by a landslide in 2010 – providing they don’t get timid and stupid…

And stick together.

It really is past time to kick ass and take names.
