7 Ways to Avoid Identity Theft Before Facebook Gets Hacked

“I think the point is Facebook hygiene, (i.e., do the above 6 things and then deactivate). Scrub and club. No?”

Why Romney the Closer Is a Consumer Nightmare

Commented Oct 16, 2012 at 16:49:53 in Business

“Your accuracy here is sniper-like. (How 'bout that latest Adam Levin post?)”

Dwayne Willis on Oct 16, 2012 at 17:40:34

“Read it. Then ask yourself, what has Obama done for consumer protection in this country? I'll give you the quick answer, absolutely nothing.”

“This is not true. Credit.com is a consumer site that help ppl figure our credit issues. There are no lawsuits. Incorrect. Go to the site and see for yourself.”

“My friend, you must have the wrong Adam Levin. Credit.com is a consumer-empowerment site. It does not sell credit cards. Because I am earnest, I tried to find the information you indicated. As with the legitimacy of your claim here, it does not exist. Unless of course you can show us a link?”

“My friend, go to Credit.com. Click on the 'Credit Cards' link. Then click on Apply. Voila, you have a new credit card.”

“You sir, are a....mistaken person. A person who makes mistakes. OR you are a perfect person who this one time made a mistake. Take a look at Credit.com. (Let me guess. You're blushing?) Read some of Levin's posts. He was the director of Consumer Affairs in NJ once upon a time, and is one of the biggest supporters of the CFPB on the business-side of that agency. Got it?”

battlehymn on Oct 12, 2012 at 10:27:53

“He sells debt. He's a big credit card company. That's what he does. Go look at the complaints and lawsuits from consumers online. Got it?”

What Mitt Romney and Liar Loans Have in Common (Be Very Afraid)

Commented Oct 7, 2012 at 22:44:06 in Money

“Oh come on. His "true agenda" was blocked by the GOP who swore to deny O a second term. They blocked him and then said he was a bad leader, when the only way around the obstruction would have been unconstitutional. Psychotic party, the GOP.”

What Mitt Romney and Liar Loans Have in Common (Be Very Afraid)

Commented Oct 7, 2012 at 11:59:09 in Money

“Your ire makes me curious about one thing, Mylene: Did this post in particular decide that vote? Also: I'm not sure saving the economy from the excesses of the Romney-lite George W Bush years (that boiled over in 2008) and the killing of Osama bin Laden really jibe well with your estimation of the first Obama term. Can you go into a bit more detail about the issues you think about, and why you voted for Romney? PS I hope the weather is fine and all the work done down there in Alabama this fine Sunday where there's a place for everyone--and most people know that place, etc. Some day I'd like to see your state--especially all that ante-bellum architecture! Congratulations on exercising your Constitutional right.”

Memo to American Consumers: You Just Got Screwed... Again

Commented Dec 9, 2011 at 07:53:29 in Politics

“Well said. The whole point these GOP goons seem to be working at is delay. The President can't claim any accomplishments if they thwart his every initiative. Then they can call him a failure. It's unAmerican, but they learned this from 30 years of thinking about it at Heritage Foundation and AEI and other places where the art of No and I'm Doing It Anyway was perfected. It is the Dirty Harry party. Sad for America.”

What Part of Occupy Wall Street Don't You Get?

Commented Oct 28, 2011 at 23:43:57 in Politics

“I think the misapprehension here is that it doesn't matter what you or I want; the group is still working on what we want. everyone down there is leaving the ego at the door. it's a beautiful thing, and makes OWS a lot harder to co-opt the way the Koch bros co-opted the Tea Party. i think your previous comment was deleted bc it was abusive. i do not have the ability to delete, but only flag as abusive, which I most certainly did. there is no need to be unpleasant.”

“It was coined in the 19th century. Dartmouth College v. Woodward (1819), corporations were recognized as having the same rights as natural persons to contract and to enforce those contracts. In Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad, 118 U.S. 394 (1886), the Supreme Court recognized corporations as persons for the purposes of the Fourteenth Amendment. I got this from Wikipedia.”

“This is a fantastic exercise. I wonder too.”

Ged Duncan on Oct 28, 2011 at 19:07:39

“What do you mean "you wonder, too", Beau? Don't you know what you want? I notice that just as in every other instance where I offer suggestions for things that can be done to help the 99%, ideas that the Occupiers SHOULD consider since I'M the 99% too, they are either laughed at or ignored. Since you deleted my entire list of suggestions, you have proven - as each lame Occupier has proven - that you not only don't have any ideas on how to improve the system, you don't want to hear any either. You just want to sit out there eating free gourmet food & hanging with uber-hip celebrities.”

“Corporate personhood is in the messaging already, and in fact I think the one point most people hit first as a doable and sellable one. From your keyboard to fete accompli.”

On Leading a Church Parade During Occupy Wall Street

Commented Oct 1, 2011 at 13:12:10 in Religion

“I was recently on a date with someone who was trying to sell me on the idea that money was spiritual and I should try to make lots of it. We are no longer dating. It's a treacherous time for spirituality when it gets co-opted by the enemies of spirituality. You almost have to ignore the church sometimes to get the message that greed and money and power as they are manifested in the mainstream are in direct opposition to the more of any religion worth practicing.”

An Apology to Glenn Beck

Commented Aug 30, 2010 at 17:11:20 in Media

“I have an odd sense of humor and the second one: like I said, I crossed a line.

Also: Had a change of heart. I got many very concerned letters from people who were upset by my post, some of them magically were focused on me and my family more than arguing about what I wrote. So I changed my mind.

It is a pleasure to get to know people form the right. They are clearly morally different. I learned a lesson today.”

ChicagoJohn on Aug 31, 2010 at 12:44:44

“Beau,

I'm going to make a suggestion that will most likely get ignored, but what the heck:
Watch Beck's show with a pen in hand. Every time you believe he's said something that his factually wrong, write it down. Then report it.

If you think that Beck is bad for the world, this will be the easiest way to prove it. Show his dishonesty.

When I make fun of the current president, I start by listing off the promises that he broke (signing statements, Sunshine laws before passing them, closing Gitmo, getting us out of Iraq within 6 months, etc.). Then I start in on the more obvious lies, ("The vast majority of the money I got was from small donors all across the country.'', "We've excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs.", Health reform will "give every American the same opportunity" to buy health insurance the way members of Congress do., etc.)

If you did that with Beck, wouldn't you get a lot more traction then asking for a sex tape?
Cause this is the thing: I keep asking my liberal friends to tell me what Beck is saying that is a lie. And there is always that long pause....”

rick902 on Aug 30, 2010 at 22:36:45

“No, you don't have an odd sense of humor. You were serious, you got busted, you made no attempt at an apology. Pretty pathetic.”

“"...people form the right. They are clearly morally different."

As opposed to Lefties, who are morally indifferent?”

“We have all said things in the heat of the moment that we've regretted later. Fortunately for me, I haven't had an audience the size of yours in those instances. All we can do is take ownership of it, apologize if it’s warranted and try to learn from it. Sounds like you are doing that.

Good luck”
