In one of the recordings, a witness could be heard talking to an officer about the fights that night. At one point the man paused, and wanted to make sure the officer knew the severity of the situation.
"The lady that came up with the glasses," the man said. "That was Sarah Palin."
The cop let out an audible sigh, and said, "Okay."
A certain Alaskan politican wannabe has a PAC so her faithful rubes can donate money to her. They'd like her to run for President but since that isn't likely she has to do *something* with that money.
Donate to candidates who could use a financial boost? Doubtful, although a few (Zach Dasher, Bob Johnson, Barry Loudermilk, Tom Emmer, Paul Gosar, Clint Didier, Joe Carr, Pat Roberts, and Joe Miller) have benefited to the tune of a whopping $5,000 each.
Use it to pay for first class airline tickets, SUV rentals and 5-star hotels? Now we're talking.
For the record, she doesn't believe in giving any money out of her own purse either. The last time she donated to a federal candidate was a decade ago (two lucky duckies were the receipients of her largesse) and said donations totaled all of $628.
Today mr. gyma and I moved money from one local bank to another local bank. We decided to move the money because bank #1 sends us obnoxious letters once a year advising us our account is going to be placed in inactive status because we haven't made a withdrawl or deposit in the last 12 months. This account happens to be our emergency fund account which is why there isn't any activity on it.
Because interest rates are so pathetically low, I've moved all the rest of our money into online banks like Ally and Discover Bank. The online banks are paying 10x to 20x as much in interest so it's worth not having immediate access to the money.
When we opened the new account this morning, the "personal bankster" advised us that we could make 4 "free" withdrawals per month but additional withdrawals would cost $1.00. WTF?
And the interest rate? A measley .01%. The only benefit is this savings account is with the same institution as our checking account so money can more easily be moved back and forth.
