I advised yesterday that one of my credit cards had been used in London. Not by me. I have not been to London in six years.
The bank told me they were cancelling the card and to come in to sign for a new one. I did yesterday. Chatted about the credit card misuse with my bank representative. I was under the impression my computer had been hacked and the credit card number obtained in that fashion.
I was wrong.
While talking with the bank representative, I was told the bank had had a lot of London problems over the past few days. All similar to mine. Which meant…..The bank’s computer system was hacked. Not mine.
The card replacement fee was waived. However, I have to wait 7-10 days for a new card.
My big out of the house experience yesterday was lunch at the Yacht Club with a friend. Good food and good company.
Saturday night the Yacht Club is having its annual Lobsterfest. It will be outside on the dock. I am putting together a party of friends. Should be a good time.
I felt out of sorts last night so stayed in.
Football is around the corner! College and professional. I love college ball. Find pro ball exciting since it means Sundays at Don’s Place.
I am a liberal at heart. Generally watch the political talk shows on MSNBC. Occasionally I switch to FOX. Want to see what the other side is saying.
Last night was shocking! Each station said its party was ahead and how terrible the opposing party was. Both sides could not be ahead. Each side was finding evil in everything the other did.
Fair and balanced did not apply to either MSNBC or FOX.
Occasionally, I trip across a piece of interesting information. Taxes and how much a person or company pays is much in the news these days. Vikram S. Pauht is President/CEO of Citigroup. He earned $14,857,103 last year. God bless him! We should all do so good! It is not his salary that is the point here. It is the taxes Citigroup paid. Zero. None. To make matters even worse, Citigroup received a tax refund of $144 million.
Only in the United States!
Todd Akin has to be the most recognized Congressman today. Whether for good or bad, his name is out there. Rape, forcible rape, and legitimate rape have made him quite identifiable.
Something is wrong when women’s rights are in the forefront of Presidential debate. Rights that were defined and settled in most instances more than fifty years ago.
When are the respective campaigns going to talk about Afghanistan and jobs?
American troops are being killed by Afghan military and police. Our friends. We should get out of Afghanistan and fast. These people bite the hand that feeds them.
Unemployment and the economy in general is killing the very essence of our country. The candidates are bogged down in rape. Even Medicare. We have heard both sides of the Medicare issue in exhausting depth. Enough is enough. Move on. People understand Medicare issues better today than ever before.
Enjoy your day!
