Why do you think they call it Faux News?

Yeah, I had already tried that. Didn't work. I then used a program called Jet Audio and was able to capture the sound with that. For some reason, audacity won't do it.

Just got this note from my Congressman in response to my email

 

Dear Mr. Adler:

 

Thank you for contacting my office regarding the Consumer Overdraft Protection Fair Practices Act (H.R. 946). I appreciate hearing from you on this issue.

 

As you may know, there has been a growing trend among banks to use ATMs and debit card point-of-sale machines to dispense credit by permitting consumers to overdraw their bank accounts without providing any notice, asking for consent or disclosing fees that are charged during the transaction. Extending these "loans" to consumers without adequate notice raises serious concerns about abusive lending practices. The Consumer Overdraft Protection Fair Practices Act would amend the Truth in Lending Act to set forth restrictions on: (1) overdraft protection programs or services for consumers; and (2) representations or statements with respect to such a program or service in any advertisement or promotion. In addition the bill amends the Electronic Fund Transfer Act and the Expedited Funds Availability Act to set forth restrictions on overdraft protection programs or services for consumers. As a member of the House Financial Services Committee, I look forward to examining this bill further and will certainly keep your comments in mind as debate continues.

 

Thank you again for taking the time to write. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions you may have or anytime I may be of assistance to you. I hope you will find my website (www.wexler.house.gov) a valuable resource in keeping up with events in Washington and South Florida.

 

With warm regards,

 

Robert Wexler

Member of Congress

Please identify the "emergency board meeting" from history that was good news for both the company and its shareholders.

Your mom isn't rethinking her decision to pull out of the market? :P

Yup. Their problems go way beyond Chuckie. Wait 'til you see what happens when the stuff he's "planted" bears "fruit."

Do I detect a note of cynicism in your most recent post re: Doc's letter?

:huh:

 

"Cynicism"?

 

:huh:

 

About politicians?

 

:huh:

 

Especially one as reliably a media whore as Wexler?

 

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

 

Surely, you've misunderstood the thrust of my post.....

Yep, they closed it right above the 50 DMA...I'm looking for a tag of the 20DMA before I add shorts....I could see a day or two of bounce.... :unsure:

This ETF must be GS overweight.

I can't see how most of the banks have taken out August's lows.
