Why? Walmart and banks picking the pocket of the poorest!

Took a disabled friend shopping at Walmart today. She is in a wheelchair due to stage 4 cancer. She was a business owner and has worked her whole life until she became sick. Thanks to our Gov., she has Medicare disability, to help her. However, she needs to pay bills that have to be paid by credit card, check or money orders. The banks charge monthly fees so it is impossible for her to have a checking account and can't get a credit card. She first had to go to an ATM to draw money deposited from her SSI disability, with a charge. So then, she has to get in line at the Walmart to get a money order. They charge her her again. Why? What happened to the idea of Post Offices acting as Banks? It would really help out the pitiless poor.
Corporations and banks picking the pockets of poor folks (and our tax dollars). Dems, please make this an issue to fight for. Thanks.

Providing financial services in post offices “could benefit the 68 million underserved Americans who either do not have a bank account or rely on expensive services like payday lending and check cashing,” says an inspector general report issued in May. “The products also could help the Postal Service generate new revenue to continue providing universal service. Because it has a presence in every neighborhood, including many places where there are no longer any bank branches, the Postal Service is well suited to provide such services. In addition, its well-trained workforce is already experienced at handling complex transactions and watching out for related fraud and other risks.”

Here is some hearsay ?

I will not name the man who was a NYT's Moscow reporter, years ago, who told me that judith miller (allegedly) slept with Qaddafi to get that interview ... and he said (allegedly) did so with lots of others. The whole Moscow Bureau laughed over this, he said. No, not a me too moment, I hope. Shaming women is not his message ... just that she was corrupt.

And at a recent dinner party, Mr. Epstein recalled, he joked about what might happen if his irrepressible and indefatigable wife were sentenced to home detention. "It wouldn't be very good from my point of view," Mr. Epstein said with a laugh.

But yesterday, as Ms. Miller was sent to the federal Alexandria Detention Center in Virginia for four months, a more somber reality emerged. Just before marshals ushered her out of the courtroom, she turned to Floyd Abrams, one of her lawyers, and said she knew she was doing the right thing. "She was sure in the end she was keeping faith with her promise," Mr. Abrams said.

I thought trump was about 'jobs, jobs, jobs'

Now shutdown is 'no jobs for you' or 'jobs, no pay jobs, no pay for work jobs' ... welcome to 1862

If we can ban Clackers then

why is it so freaking hard to ban trump?

I can hardly believe it, big default line for trump crossed

My cousin, whom I love, regardless of the fact that she voted for trump, stated today that she "blames the media" for giving us trump. "They never vetted him properly," I said (always seeking a position of agreement). She is 82 years old and a life long repub but with a heart of gold, always helping those in need, the sick and lonely. When repubs lose her (and her 5 sons and families) then they are about to learn how screwed they are. This shutdown is affecting her directly because she owns rental properties and has many Coast Guard tenants that can't pay rent. trump is so over ... BTW I don't believe polls that say trump has 39% SUPPORT. From where I live, I see his support crashing.

So, your child is involved with drugs,

according to the Principle at his School. They have found drugs in his locker and have interviewed students who state that they got drugs from your son.
You:
1. Search his room and social media and ground him until the facts come forward - call rehab center checking for availability
2. Tell your kid that the Principle is a lying sack of shiat and not to worry, you will never turn against your kid
3. Ask your kid for his connections to drugs so that you can get in on the investment possibilities

So where do repubs stand? ... on trump Russian connection?

Who supports the shutdown?

So repubs support the shutdown, therefore, they are to be held responsible for it. End of story. Take a bath in it trumpers.


Among Republicans, 58 percent both support the wall and say Trump should continue to demand funding, compared with 22 percent who say he should compromise to end the shutdown.

Thank you, President Clinton

No, in this gov. shutdown, it is not both sides

I am sick of hearing this. American's overwhelmingly chose Democrats to stop the asswipe, trump.

"Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it."
