BOA will start charging me $5/month this weekend to use debit card

They blame the communists and their law changes. They are already hitting the merchants up for a fee in using these cards. I guess I will have to reassess BOA. Wells Fargo has recently opened new offices here. I used them when I was in CA.

The Examiner takes on the out of control EPA

I love the article but take exception to the first sentence:

If you studied logic in high school, you probably learned about a style of argument called "reductio ad absurdum."

Logic in High School???? Maybe in the 40s. But sure as hell not now.  I even doubt that most colleges teach it now.

Lemme see -- am I going to listen to Herman Cain, successful businessman and mathematician (that's a condensed version of his resume) or Byron York, blogger and (maybe) student of English?

Yeah, that's a tough call. I think I'll go with York. Right after I heed Ed "Poppin' Fresh" Morrissey's call to "respect [Osama] Obama's 'personhood.'"

BTW -- The Chicago Jesus is still a stuttering clusterf*** of a miserable failure, as he is on every day with a "y" at the end of its name.

Vic, why do you even still do business with those SCOAMFs at BOA?  Drop their rent-seeking asses.  Go with a local bank.

LOL, funny you should say that. When I moved here in 1977 I did go with a local bank. I have not changed banks at all. My local bank has been bought out and merged 3 or 4 times since I started banking there. Finally winding up with BOA.

28 Vic, yeah, that same way is how I ended up at Wells Fargo.  But I  dropped them and I'm now with a mid-size regional bank.  They refund my ATM fees for non-local-bank ATM usage so traveling isn't much of a problem either.

Yeah that could be a problem. I would not like to implement that plan unless they did it as an amendment that repealed the income tax and SS taxes and fixed it where future congresses could not pile on.

38 "Unintentional" molehills have a way of growing in the media into mountains.  Given, during the primaries, a Republican's campaign will ignore Reagan's 11th Commandment. But using public discourse to insult his opponent's wife for supporting her husband is a passive aggressive asshole tactic.

The plastic media face of Mr. Nice Guy, Mitt Romney, who can't hit a moving target but claims to "hunt" varmints, sneered at Mrs. Perry after Rick said that she supported his decision (made it for him) to join the potus race in order to fulfill duty to country.

So the Mr. Patriotic campaign that respects women, sacred families, service to country (evading military service, promoting his own campaign as his sons' service to country), blah blah apple pie, decides to target her as a nagging nitwit who should stfu. And the best the British press can say on her behalf is that she's being used by her husband to "humanise" his image.

Mr Perry had embarked on "a careless candidacy prompted by his wife" and campaign consultants. Mrs Perry, however, is seen by the Perry campaign as a major asset and is being used to help introduce him to voters and "humanise" him

40 35 I'm dumping b of a and going credit union. I refuse to give these bastards anymore of my money.

Good for you
It's time we start thinking a little bit like liberals in this regard, they make politically motivated spending decisions with their money (i.e., refusing to shop at Walmart, etc.)
They go way overboard and turn every spending decision into a political decision, but it doesn't hurt for us to do so for the important items that truly matter, like not rewarding the big bank bailouts with our money.
I refuse to do business with Citibank, Chase, BOA, Wells Fargo, etc., etc.
The only exception is my HSA account with Chase, over which I have no control.  If it were up to me I'd move it in a heartbeat.
I also refuse to buy Chevy, GM, Chrysler, etc.
I don't turn the purchase of every apple into an angst-filled decision-making paralysis but for the big things we should definitely vote with our wallets.

46 Romney should STFU about Perry's wife.  And it's particularly cowardly to do it by having your campaign operatives spread that shit.  By the time this year's over, I'm sure I'll have at least a dozen reasons to really hate Mittens.

I'm sure they already have.  I use my 'debit' card as a credit card more and more....it's the only way to get the reward points.  I had enough recently to buy a 32" LCD TV....even the shipping was free. ;o)

53 46-48

Romney was always a snake, and he is just being Romney.  Perry seems upstanding, and I like that.  Huckabee, another snake, will probably endorse Romney.  IMO, that is just another reason to dislike Huckabee-and Fox.  The only people on Fox who seem to be for Perry are the intelligent people.  Eric Bolling, Andrea Tanteros, and Gasperino all seem like Perry people from what I can tell.

67 I see that Hotair has a headline up that says Obama thinks the USA has gotten a bit "soft." That really brings back memories, Big Time, of a speech Carter gave once that said the US economy was like a superb athlete, that allowed itself to get out of shape.

You have to wait until 3 pm for a colonoscopy!?  I'd be hurting people by then.  No food, no coffee?  I don't think so....

I am waaaaay overdue for one of those.

Posted by: Tami at September 30, 2011 03:15 AM (X6akg)

69 Use a credit union credit card and pay it off every month.  Takes only slightly more discipline than a debit card.  There is usually no annual fee with the credit union credit card, but you might have transaction fees for cash advances.

70 Thanks Vic. It my 50 year old visit. I had one a few years ago, time again. My grandad had colon cancer plus all the drugs I take for MS the docs like to keep an eye on me.

73 Also off of Hotair, it would appear Christie is ready to jump into the race for President: “Insiders say Christie is ready to put a presidential campaign together ‘pretty fast.’ Well, see, tHAT is the problem: he's going to jump in fast, ill-prepared... just like Perry. I honestly believe one major stumbling block for Perry has been, he simply didn't spend the last 4 years planning for his run, studying the national issues, and thinking of ways to explain some his actions as Governor (I saw yesterday he finally decided to take my hint, and placed blame for having to educate illegals on the federal government - alas, only AFTER he insulted everyone by calling them heartless). The Presidency is the Big Time. If you jump in half-assed prepared, as an afterthought... it WILL show, no matter how good you are. Prediction, should Christie actually jump in the race: his polls will rocket, then he'll have a series of missteps as he tries to explain away some of his decisions as Governor and has to explain complex foreign policy issues and his take on them... and then he'll suddenly start to fade, like Perry has. If he enters the race, I hope he surprises me.

Second that reco.  Do not wait for a convenient date in the future to schedule a colonoscopy.  It may be an unpleasant experience, but the potential consequences of not having that information are far more unpleasant.

78 headlines:

According to anonymous sources with knowledge of the case being cited, the staunchly anti-US leftist strongman since 1999 Chavez went into the Military Hospital. "He was in fairly serious overall condition. When he arrived, he was in quite serious shape and that is why he was brought in for emergency care." [unnamed sources] Information Minister Andres Izarra denied the report, threatening to commit publishing reporters to the insane asylum. The silver lining? A meeting between Chavez and his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad set for this weekend in Caracas was postponed indefinitely.

Chavez predicts his own "knock-out" in 2012. /Obama drone?

80 CC, The POTUS campaign is grueling. Christie is not in the best shape, NTTAWWT, but you have to wonder if he does...I don't know, bad things happen. Plus it would piss me off. I'm tired of will he/she or won't he/she shit.

Posted by: Vic at September 30, 2011 08:21 AM (M9Ie6) I suspect Christie would love to be President, but pretty much agrees with me about what happens when you jump into the race at a late hour, as an afterthought. The lack of preparation will inevitably show, and make you look stupid.

Posted by: CoolCzech at September 30, 2011 03:25 AM (niZvt)

84 The only thing good about Christie entering would be that it would hurt Romney more than the other candidates.

That and the press would immediately start bashing him instead of Perry.

85 You'll get through it Vic. Its tough stuff but I've watched my mom go through chemo twice and she is doing well. This second bout of breast cancer is bad but the drugs seem to be working. Mom will be 80 in January.

89 I've got a theory I want to toss out.

Does anyone know what happens to the Obama campaign donations after the election, if he loses, and there is money left over?

I've been trying to figure out why he would act so stupidly regarding his administration and campaign, if he is in such bad shape (and they know it).  It is almost like they don't even want to win, they just want to gen up as much leftist hatred as they can muster.

What if he knows he is going to lose, so is instead taking actions (like continuing DOE loans) that will maximize his donations (pay to play)?  That he is trying to get as much money in the bank as he can, before he loses in 2012?

What happens to that money, if he loses?

91 Media/RNC want Christie RINO warrior v. Obama class warfare warrior

Republicans should seriously consider what RINO policies have accomplished "for" us over the years.

Are we better off now given the RINO track record than we were back whenever (pick a year, any year)?

93 Well, in defense of Christie, I would say he seems very suited to addressing THE issue of our time, as I see it: taming government spending. I don't like some of his social positions and the Global Warming thing (though I think he is sane enough to make sure that whatever "climate change" regulations he enacted wouldn't simply blow up our economy). But if he could balance the budget without burdening America with Late Roman Empire-levels of ruinous taxation, kill Obamacare, and put Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid on a sound fiscal footing... he would go down as one of America's greatest presidents.

Left over money from political donations must either be spent on campaign debts, donated to other politicians for campaigns (what most of them do), or donated to charity. (I think they can also give it back to the donors but that is virtually impossible)

He IS old; I was listening to schtick 30 years ago as my Dad drove me to college. He was actually better in those days, with some genuinely funny parodies (at least I thought they were funny, when I was still a teen). Even then, though, he had this annoying habit of laughing at his own crap, along with whoever else was on with him, and complaining about whatever annoyed HIM, for whatever reason.. as though anyone else gave a crap. Now that is pretty much ALL he does. Just about unlistenable.

Supposed to get down to 50 tonight.

Oh, the local summary of this summer:

Looking back at summer 2011, it was one of the hottest on record with 62 days of 100-plus degrees since June 1. The average number of days over the century mark is seven.

...

So far for the year, 19.38 inches has fallen in the area. That's 16.93 inches below the average. The drier conditions have led to the spread of wildfires across the state.

And no rain in the 10 day forecast.

The funny thing about how freaking hot it was this summer is that it wasn't very humid. (which means 20-30 % humidity instead of 60% or more) We've had to get used to the humidity again this month.

 

I hope that in the next couple months we all stop flinching at the words "summer" or "hot weather".

The one and only experience I had with BOA is when my daughter wanted to cash a very small paycheck she had from the college she attends.  She had a part time job at the college.  The check was drawn on the college's BOA  account but they refused to cash it because she didn't have an account there.  I left there calling them every name in the book.

My advice to Morons anticipating the ordeal--schedule for a morning exam if at all possible.  Most of the time you would be starving you're asleep (just remember to have a sturdy pillow cover so you don't eat it in your dreams).  Jello is not food, and all the good flavors are forbidden--but you can get unflavored gelatin, margarita mix, and tequila.  I'm sure you know what to do from there.  Saved my life...
