    Sorry, but how is this any different then having to buy check books? If you don't like being charged 3 dollars a month go to another bank.

    if my bank did something similar, i wouldn't pay the three bucks. i'd move my money on general principle. i suspect many others will, as well.

    i don't know anyone who is comfortable with gas prices, either. they are mostly buying it because they have to and not buying other goods and services. which is part of what's hurting the economy.

    Notice how "comfortable" people have gotten with $3 gas. Once you've been to $4, it doesn't seem like that big of a deal to pay $3.

    Such is the subtle psychology of conditioning the human mind.
    Doesn't that tin-foil hat get a bit itchy after a while?

    I live in Georgia, I am not sure if rust actually exists.

    Smaller cars in the winter are fine provided the roads are plowed fairly regularly after a snow storm, and you have winter tires. It would be the depth of snow ( meaning clearance) that would effect small cars more then larger cars or pickups. Highway driving during a blizzard is not recommended in any vehicle, small or large. Both can get blown into the ditch, semis can be blown into the ditch as well
    Conservatives believe that the government is incompetent, and seek to elect people who will ensure it is

    Of course it's rightwing. According to the rightwing ideology, businesses can charge people for whatever they want. They can even get people to pay for the privilige of lending a bank their money.

    Yes, most Dems are right of center, with plenty of rightwingers.

    And your claim about Frank-Dodd is BS. If it were true, ALL banks would be doing this.

    If you want to play the partisan game, I could also point out that Wells Fargo is a bank based in San Francisco, which many consider to be a huge hub of Liberalism. See how flimsy these arguments are? Partisan politics have nothing to do with this discussion.
