You mean like the new

banking rule/regulation I discovered today when I tried to make an online purchase in another state and it was declined? When I called about what was wrong since I had way more than enough money in my bank to purchase the item, I was told it was because it was in a state other than Virginia so if I wanted to continue with the purchase they would unblock that purchase for one time only....any future purchases would require that I call the bank ahead of time and let them know so they could unblock it again. According to them, even if I travel to visit family out of state I would be declined (say I was taking everyone to Red Lobster), suffer the embarrassment of having the card declined in the restaurant, and then have to call the bank to unblock that purchase and wait another half hour or so for it to be activated for use. The ONLY way I could unblock my card permanently is to agree that ANY fraudulent charges on my card would be unclaimable by me and that I would be responsible for any and all of them. Evidently, I'm, at 79 years old, too foolish to know what I want to spend my money on when I'm in another state so they are going to 'protect' me from myself.

Yeah....Hitler comes to mind........Thank you, Dodd/Frank, for infringing on my rights again, as they just keep adding to the list of government 'protections'.

I was referring to something discussed before on SE.

Something like 'Bad-tempered discussions invariably degenerate until someone accuses another poster's candidate of being "Hitler" '.
Just trying to jump things along this leap year. Devil

What really fries me about this is that when I go to the bank site and use "bill pay" to send payments on bills I want to pay in order to avoid fees, those payments are ALL for out of state services (credit cards, electric, phone, etc) and NONE have been blocked. Somewhere along the line it appears to be selective. It was the same thing when the Dems via Barney Frank decided to outlaw online gambling. It was supposed to stop stupid, entitlement children with credit cards given to them by their parents, but it effectively stopped everyone from being able to determine what they wanted to do with their own money and that the government knew better about what was good for us. And NOBODY fought it....so much for freedom and liberty.

I don't call anybody Hitler.....that seems to be a liberal thing most of the time from what I've seen in the media. lol

Unfortunately, these comments are often called
"Trump" cards. Happy In an argument, such cards are saved for the special occasion of ending the discussion when the other side has a person on the ropes and he has no further logical points to make. I could list a few of these but some would be offended. Politicians like the offended.
