But had them I did.And love them with all my heart and soul.
And they screwed up.
The Occupy Wall Street movement has spread to Tampa.
And some people are upset….
The noise bothers them ?
What? Aren’t they just the least little bit upset over the fees,and money,the major banks are charging?
And the results are in.It ain’t just hippies,homeless,and the unemployed that are protesting.
Why should I pay $5 a month to use my debit card and my money?
After years of touting that using your debit card was the safest way to carry/spend your money,now the banks want to charge me to use it?
I can start carrying cash on me? How safe is that?
Fees to use my money? Shouldn’t we be charging them to use our money?
People are angry.They---the financial institutions--- mismanaged their finances,and now,they want us to pay?
I don’t get it…
If I mismanage my money,or use it unwisely,who can I collect from? No one.It’s my fault and I suck it up.
Bank of America,Wells Fargo,SunTrust,et al……
Suck It Up!
I’m moving my money to my Credit Union!
No fees and better interest….just lettin’ ya know….
I know you will never read this,but on the off chance you might,here are my thoughts on the debt crisis….
First off,I really believe in the idea of when you want to complain about a problem,you should have a reasonable solution to the problem.
With that in mind,here are mine…..
1. I know this sounds silly,but,instead of asking Seniors and our military to go without paychecks, have you considered asking yourself and Congress to withhold your/their pay?
Why should the people that didn’t cause the problem,pay for it? What did they do,to deserve the repercussions of your/their childish/schoolyard actions? Doesn’t working hard(not that Congress knows anything about that!) and defending our Country count for something,besides being used as a hostage for political agendas?
Plus,you know what? It might be interesting to the voters to see your and Congress’ reaction to that request.
Might come in handy come re-election time.
2. Instead of bailing out the big car companies,and the banks,why didn’t you try forgiving student loans? How ‘bout this? Say,the federal government forgave student loans of all who were current with their loans and actively working? If you gave a large percentage of the population a couple of hundred bucks every month,might they not buy a car,or a house?Putting people to work?Solving the housing glut?How many teachers,today,can afford to buy a new house,or a car,because they are trying to pay off student loans?So,they look for work elsewhere.If they can find it….
These are the ones you want to teach our future leaders,aren’t they? They can’t afford to buy a house,so they are forced to live in an apartment.What does that do for the tax base of the local economies?
How many car companies have hired extra people,as a result of the bail-out,lately? But if people had that extra student loan pay-back money and bought cars,wouldn't the car companies be forced to hire workers?
Banks? Okay-let’s not go there….You and I will both get worked up….
and this is a big but,
Mr.President,has anyone thought of asking all of these companies…which the taxpayers so generously helped out…to justify exactly what they did with our money?
So,Mr.President,knowing that you will never see this,these are my possible solutions to this country’s fiscal crisis.
I know I’m just a voter,but….
I believed you when you said “We can do it.”
And putting my faith in you,I voted for you.
Soooo,on the off chance that you might see this,what are your thoughts?
I bought two of the Mallo Cups.Set me back $3 ! I can remember when they were twenty five cents each.Out of the vending machine at Beverly Lanes bowling alley,in Niagara Falls,NY.And they had a coin inside that you could save up and return for a coupon for free ones.Well,those days are loooong gone……
The times they are a changin’……..
Bought ‘em here…..
They have Dots,on the paper,too!
For the memories,it was still worth the money…..
Yep,it was well worth it.
They still taste the same.
Mr.Nicklaus,may I ask you a question?
‘cause I think you have come up with
If you really,
wanna do something for the state of Florida,
how ‘bout building a golf course that all we little people could use?
‘cause most of us,little people,like our state parks like this….
‘just a thought,Mr.Nicklaus…..
