    Screw the banks

    It's nice to see a condescending douchebro here to reveal his industry's true nature and character.

    These Saxe-Coburg-Gothas are such carpetbaggers. It's all been downhill since the Tudors anyway.

    Screw the banks

    @Tywin et al. Jesus God that explains a lot. When my wife and I tried for our first home loan, we went to Wells Fargo and a particular loan officer because of a recommendation from my workplace. It was a fucking shitshow. I could not understand how a major corporation could be so bad at its most basic and quotidian functions. I should have known when I mentioned the loan officer's name to our real estate agent, and she recognized his name. I asked what she knew of him, and she said, "He's a great salesman." Maybe it's lucky my employer went belly up at that time and I had to back out of the sale. We lost some money, but that's probably better than being chained to those incompetent shitheels for decades. We're a thousand times happier with our credit union home loan.

    U.S. Politics; Who Watches the Watchers?

    Trump basically did the same thing he did when he cancelled the Golden State Warriors' invitation to the White House after some players said they wouldn't go. A transparent attempt to save face before someone else could make him look bad. He's a sad insecure child who's never had to grow up. Fuck the people who couldn't see this and thought he'd be a sane choice as a world leader, and fuck the people who helped him get this far in the first place.
  6. Gosh, and here I thought I'd laid it on a little thick.

    Hamstrings don't ever seem to heal quickly, do they?

    Quinn Cook? Maybe not the time to make sure everyone's gotten a chance to shoot.

    It would at least help us plan our formal Turning Our Backs on You ceremony.

    Screw the banks

    Yup. My bank does this shit too. I think I got extra-fucked one holiday weekend when I had to spend up a storm, someone cashed a couple of checks of mine they'd been sitting on, and they carefully racked my transactions for maximum damage. Largest charges go through first, regardless of when they were made, so since the checks came in on Monday, and were larger, they took higher precedence over the handful of smaller transactions I'd made with my debit card. It was so outrageous the local branch manager actually called HQ on my behalf because he thought it was fucked up. And don't get me started at the persistent rash of false accounts scandals Wells Fargo has perpetrated. In a sane world, their executives would be hanging from lamp posts in financial districts as a warning to the other greedheads. Where are our lawmakers on this? Selling us out, of course. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is being subverted and dismantled by Trump's new appointee, who has the moral sense of a weasel on meth. Even Democrats like Schumer are in their pocket. The best I can do is divert my business as much as I can to smaller, local businesses. My home loan is with a local credit union, who recently emailed me to find out why I hadn't cashed a refund check for overpayment of property taxes.

    Awfully disrespectful way to refer to our President.
