Pay only 79% Interest on that Pack of Gum

So my computer has been down for about a week now, this is why I have not been posting. Anyways I hope to get it back up tomorrow I finally found a boot disk. Just a quick post tonight from another computer something I found almost comical.
So this is a relatively new (been out for a couple of years) credit card from "First Premier" with a 79% APR. Oh and the credit limit is $300 (at least for the customer mentioned). How badly do you need $300 that your will to pay such an insane rate?
My favorite quote from the story
The card proved popular with consumers, said First Premier Bankcard CEO Miles Beacom, but the performance was bad: "A lot of the people ran up the card, defaulted and went directly to charge off."
Well you don't say. You mean the type of clients that would accept such a ridiculous APR aren't responsible or good with money?

Congress Pushes to Make Patriot Act Permanent.

This has to be stopped I think a lot of people have forgotten about it now that some of the post 9/11 hysteria has died down but thats what these congressmanare relying on. We can stop this now most people dont believe all the lies anymore. Their scare tactics are not working as well lets stop the Patriot Act renewal before Congress finds another justification to extend it. You can start by going here and finding out where your senator stands on the bill. After that its a matter of contacting him or her. Phone calls or letters work best. If you need help let me know.

Freshly emboldened by their mid-term congressional wins, establishment Republicans are set to extend the unconstitutional police state Patriot Act. It is set to expire in three weeks and Republicans are eager to make sections of the legislation permanent.

On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee postponed a vote to continue and extend the law. “Having this debate year after year offers little certainty to agents utilizing these provisions to keep the nation safe,” said ranking member Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.
“Short-term reauthorizations lead to operational uncertainty and compliance and reporting problems if the reauthorization occurs too close to expiration,” Grassley continued. “If these provisions are necessary, we should provide more certainty rather than simply revisiting the law year after year given the indefinite threat we face from acts of terrorism, and that looks like decades ahead. We should permanently reauthorize the three expiring provisions.”
