Taking On Predatory Payday Lenders In Florida

If you don’t have a bank account — and millions of American’s don’t — how do you cash a check or pay a bill? Even if you do have a bank account, how do you get a small loan in an emergency?

Man accidentally 'deletes his entire company' with one line of bad code

By accidentally telling his computer to delete everything in his servers, hosting provider Marco Marsala has seemingly removed all trace of his company and the websites that he looks after for his customers.

But far from advising them how to fix it, most experts informed him that he had just accidentally deleted the data of his company and its clients, and in so doing had probably destroyed his entire company with just one line of code.

The Conspiracy Theorists Were Right: Mega Bank Admits to Rigging Global Gold and Silver Markets

By Justin Gardner

And so the former cartel members are turning on each other...

The Pentagon’s Counter-Zombie Martial Law Plan: ‘Concentrate Firepower to the Head’

And whether it seems like a joke or not, the Pentagon has a document preparing its forces for the remote possibility – or perhaps imminent cult film future pre-programmed through the media – of an all-out Zombie apocalypse.

“Given the likelihood of an all out threat to ‘human survival’, it is likely that this plan will be executed with a declaration of martial law with CONUS and U.S. territories.

[...]

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough Explodes on Air “Why does the Dem Party even have voting booths? This system is so RIGGED!”

This really is the year when the American people had it rubbed in their faces that their entire presidential election process is a complete scam. A fraud. A dog and pony show. Pointless to the nth degree.

Now pundits are blatantly pointing out this fact left and right all over the place. It is impossible at this point for them to pretend to ignore it.

The most recent developments include the Colorado GOP canceling their primary and just handing their delegates off to Cruz, while Bernie Sanders actually won in Wyoming, but still left with less delegates than Hillary Clinton.
