Debtor's Revolt Now!

This is fucking awesome!!

I love it when a lowly individual takes on Corporate America and wins.  This woman, Ann Minch, posted a long YouTube rant directed at Bank of America.  In it she calls them, "...evil thieving bastards".  It seems, her rant made it to the top of BoA headquarters, as she received a personal call from Jeff Crawford, Senior Vice President of Existing Customer Credit Services.

Have a look at he video, read the CNN Money article and visit her site.  I know I'll be following this closely.

Four simple steps to take now:

  1. Pull your money from the big corporate banks and find a local community bank or credit union for conducting your banking business.
  2. Don't use credit cards unless you are able to pay the balance in full every month.
  3. Downsize and simplify your life to reduce stress and cost.
  4. Don't be passive. Demand fairness from your creditors.

Rogers F*cks it's customers again!

Have a look at the blurb below and form your own opinion:

Rogers is scrapping the $6.95 system access fee and replacing it with a "regulatory recovery fee" that will differ by province.
The new fee, which takes effect on Oct. 5, will range between $2.46 and $3.46 per month, depending on the region. In addition, Rogers is raising the base rates of its plans by $5 and adding three free calling features — call forwarding, Who Called and Call Manager, which allow customers to manage incoming calls and alerts them to calls received when their phones were off.
Full article...

So, if my math is correct, rates will be increasing by $0.51 to $1.51!

Two questions:
1) How does this benefit consumers?
2) "regulatory recovery fee"... Which regulation? Recovering what?

Let the bitching commence!

Thong. FAIL!

Ok, no commentary needed.  This just made me

Facebook Burgler Busted

Sometimes we need to stop and give thanks to <insert deity here> that the vast majority of criminals are in the lowest 2% of the IQ bell curve.

MARTINSBURG - The popular online social networking site Facebook helped lead to an alleged burglar's arrest after he stopped check his account on the victim's computer, but forgot to log out before leaving the home with two diamond rings.
Jonathan G. Parker, 19, of Fort Loudoun, Pa., was arraigned Tuesday one count of felony daytime burglary.

According to court records, Deputy P.D. Ware of the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department responded on Aug. 28 to the victim's home after she reported the burglary.
She told police that someone had broken into her home through a bedroom window.
There were open cabinets in her garage, and other signs of a burglar.
The victim later noticed that the intruder also used her computer to check his Facebook status, and his account was still open when she checked the computer.
The victim later noticed that she was missing two diamond rings from her dresser in the same room as her computer.
The two rings were worth more than $3,500, reports indicate.
During the investigation, a friend of the victim told her that he knew where Parker was staying, in the same area as the victim's house.
Police then went to the home and spoke with a friend of Parker's.
The man said Parker had stopped by his home occasionally, but he said the man didn't live there.
He also said that the night before the burglary, Parker asked him if he wanted to help break into the victim's home but he refused.
As of Tuesday evening, Parker remained in custody at the Eastern Regional Jail on $10,000 bail.
If convicted he faces one to 10 years in prison.
