My wife got a Herberger’s credit card bought some stuff, went on vacation, got back, bill was due in2 days, option to pay by phone I start process. there is a $15 fee to pay by phone. I got online sign up to pay online and find out they want a $15 fee for paying online also. OK I pay it because if I mail the payment the late fee via the mail is much higher. She likes to buy stuff. will she be buying it at Herberger’s, NO Is this smart business ? Herberger’s -want to pay bill before due date online or by phone costs you $15 fee forget this place
I got this off of THE Consumerist which got it from Boing Boing. Nothing is original on my part.
“This a freakin’ awesome cartoon that explains how the credit crisis began, played out, and exploded in our face. I know you’ve seen and heard a million of these by now, but this one is highly visually engaging and entertaining, enough so I could see it being used in the classroom and kids not getting (too) bored. Graphic designer Jonathan Jarvis. Especially good is how it explains leverage.
It does miss out on a few details, like how shady mortgage brokers would push even prime borrowers into subprime mortgages because the fees were better. Or how BBB rated CDOs would also get split into their own tranches, with the top one getting a AAA rating just like the one the BBB was derived from. But you have to streamline some of the information to make a compelling 11-minute information, and whatever is lost in fine-grain is made up for in lucidness.”

SAN ANGELO, Texas (CNN) — Tipped that girls as young as 13 were being forced to enter “spiritual marriages,” have sex and bear children, Texas officials raided an isolated polygamist retreat in West Texas, according to court documents released Tuesday. Almost sadly funny that Muslim matrimonial service buys ads at .religion news.com but a buck is a buck especially when there doesn’t seem to be much difference between conservative Christians , conservative Muslims, conservative Morrmon’s when it comes to pedophile , child bride whatever you call it.
