    My card company called me the other day to ask if I wanted to opt into a program so I could automatically go "over-limit" and I told them not just no, but hell no, if I am gonna go over-limit then I need to be declined, and got a "but why?" and I told her that I think the outrageous new interest rate was a sufficient rate to cover CEO bonuses and if it wasn't enough then they should take their asses out to the corner and see what the going rate was! I am paying down mine, and then to hell with them, and the peces gordos in the exec suites can eat crap!

    I opted for my own banking solution, dumped them. Cash is king.

    I got really stupid with them. I was worse with the lottery. From now on, I don't touch them. They are poison.
