    The Chamber of Commerce or some such group is running ads against this horrible threat to freedom called the CFPA. Somehow they manage to make it look like a threat to freedom without ever saying what it is. Can you imagine an ad against Consumer Financial Protection Act. Our side just needs to play off those commercials and name the CFPA time after time.

    Shell just told me that they can't make money if they don't charge me 24.99% interest, even as my bank account can't make any money if they borrow my money for more than 2% interest.

    We need to call it what it is, and it wouldn't hurt to point out that it's in the Bible--no usury. NO USURY.

      and they were only offering 0.7% interest on a long term cd.  My credit cards want 25%. Thats for regular purchase at sears.  Not a default rate.  How you gonna bump sales with those kind of rates?  Time for pitchforks and torches.  (just kidding).  I didnt mean people should use them. Really. But I realize people are angry.  Free speech!

        someone who has replied to me. But I am very concerned pitchforks and torches talk, even if you walk it back. We are the Democrats. People hold us to a higher standard of behavior than they do Republicans. It doesn't matter that it isn't fair. It just is.
