I got up at 10:00 am. Trixie was barking so much I had no choice. I went downstairs, made coffee, sat on the couch and watched the “Twilight” movie. After that I watched an hour of cartoons. I feel like a slug. Took a shower, dried my hair, painted on some eyebrows. Contemplated going to the market. Nah. It’s already 2:30. I don’t wanna go outside. I do some laundry. Check my email. Nothing but junk. No one calls me or emails me and I feel very out of touch. I did however receive my unemployment debit card today. Yeah. Debit card … issued by Bank of America. BofA. You know, one of those institutions that all of us hardworking tax payers helped to bail out a few years ago? Yeah, them. Something is amiss in River City. Let’s pause a moment shall we … unemployment benefits are taken out of everyone’s pay for the sole purpose of tiding one over during a period of unemployment. How the hell does an institution like Bank of America get involved in this? I get my allotted $450 just by swiping my unemployment debit card where my unemployment funds are kept in a Bank of America account (?!?!?!?!??!) whenever I make a purchase for say food or toilet paper … what does BofA get out of this? I can’t imagine an institution of that size with that kind of power and influence (and criminality) not getting something. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if every time I swipe those bastards make $5.00. I mean after all, remember when the Occupy Wall Street people and the rest of America got pissed when Bank of America was going to start charging $5.00/month per swipe? The people said "No Way Jose to You Bank of America" then BING, BOOM, BANG, BofA decides not to implement that $5.00 a swipe after all. I'll bet you a bad case of Syphyllis that those bastards maneuvered a deal with the Fed so they could “recover” those “lost fees” … Just puttin’a bug in your ears.
Assholes. Imona write my Senator right now!!!
