    Interesting. thanks for posting Dave.

    Here's another related story. First I've heard of it, but I have been
    busy at work and little time when I get home to watch the tube
    or even get on here to read the mail.

    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

      I laughed when the video started to play and it was a commercial for a bank credit card.

        Problem is, they will get the money some how, some where else. They use to get the fees from retailers, charging them small percentages on sales with debit cards. Then came alone the Dodd/Frank financial bill, it took away their ability to charge that fee. So, the retailers kept prices the same, and didn't lower them even though the fee was no longer applicable. But the banks no longer had that revenue, so then came the 5 dollar fee. Transparent and right there for you to see, now it will end up buried in other fees you don't see. Thing is, people don't realize that it costs money to provide simple luxuries such as debit cards. The cost of the computer systems, data services, data security, server technicians, customer support... None of it is free.

        The "free" campaign is finally coming to bite everyone in the ***. I have been preaching this for a while now, you can only offer free stuff for so long before you run out of money, something our businesses and government is finding out the hard way!

          I wonder if it costs more or less than the old way of doing business. In the end its probably a wash.
