GOVERNMENT, POLITICIANS, CELEBRITIES, SPORTS STARS and the MEDIA UNITE rather than turn on each other, so should REPUBLICAN and DEMOCRATIC VOTERS.

Is it really OK that celebrities, probably influenced by their own financial planners and investment advisors, keep their mouths shut about how awful the credit card companies are punishing the people of the world by raising credit card interest rates to economically lethal levels?

Is it really acceptable that no one in the media seems bent on taking on the credit card companies and crediting them with the continued economic contraction of our economy?  

Is it really acceptable for local governments to want to be the credit card companies best friend even as they see these very same financial institutions vacuum sealing local economies and drying up normal local, state and federal revenue streams as a result of their 30% interest rates?

When will Wall Street realize that even their own investors have given up investing as they instead pay a 30% never ending monthly maintenance interest fee charge on their existing credit card debt?

When will local, state and federal governments, Politicians, Wall Street Investors the Media and Celebrities begin to turn against each other as they realize that the more the consumer is pinched, so too are they being pinched in the form of less consumer revenue going towards them?

When will you start telling anybody who wants your money that it is going to the credit card companies and their ridiculous interest rates.  
The next time ANY SALESPERSON CALLS, just tell them, sorry, the credit card companies take all my spending money every paycheck.

When will Oprah Winfrey be called out for giving millions of free KFC Chicken Grill Coupons to her "minions" while ignoring the absolutely unnecessary devastation that Chase bank and other credit card companies are causing to the very same people.  Free Chicken Dinners Oprah, while people lose their homes and wealth over usurious credit card interest rates?  Huh, is that the best you can do?

What is the best we can do in the meantime?  I'd love to hear from you in the comments section.

ANOTHER CHASE CARD BLOGGER PROTESTS CHASE'S Apparent LACK of CUSTOMER SERVICE.

This Blogger cut and run from Chase Bank right after Chase Bank gave them a 100 dollars to open an account with Chase. Does it give Chase Bank a good feeling to bilk customers out of millions and perhaps billions of dollars in questionable fees, and then turn around and "give back" to those opening up a new account with them?

KInd of like "Robbing Da Hood" and giving back to new Chase Bank Enrollees.

WESLEY WANNEMACHER TESTIFIES in front of CONGRESS about his CHASE BANK CREDIT CARD WEDDING DAY EXPERIENCE.


Wesley Wannemacher's story is the kind of story that would do mafia gangsters and racketeers proud, because it was, and will continue to be a legal way to do business, even after the credit card reform bill that just recently passed congress.

Too bad Congress didn't connect what happened to Mr. Wannemacher and his Chase Credit Card Debt with what is happening all over America and see the value in lowering interest rate charges on debt older than three years old to zero percent for those who intend on paying off the old debt via monthly payments.

This would help start our economy faster than any other method out there, and do it from the ground up.

Judging those who have credit card debt as having been irresponsible doesn't help solve a problem that affects EVERYBODY and the ECONOMY.

A couple of things I find offensive about those who judge others with credit card debt problems is the idea that people were being careless. Credit card debt can take YEARS to fall into and occur to those who made no wasteful purchases. 

The assumption that credit card debt happens overnight or because somebody bought a big screen tv is idiotic. A big screen TV and a monthly cable TV package that results in a person staying home a few extra nights every month will SAVE that person money versus going out to a restaurant and a movie over the course of time.  Reading books may save even more money, but lets not just blame others because they bought something that actually helped create wealth for others.

Using Credit Cards to pay for medical expenses, college education for kids, small business start ups, home repairs, unexpected emergencies, in COMBINATION with high credit card interest rates and a deceptively small two percent monthly minimum payment has led to escalating credit card debt for millions of consumers.  

One of the dirty little credit card industry secrets is that many people could actually pay off their credit card debts if the interest rate wasn't 20% or higher!

Those of you who judge others with credit card debt as being irresponsible may owe your own job to these so called irresponsible people using their credit cards to buy products or services your place of employment or business sells.  

On top of all of that, as house prices escalated a couple of years ago, the ratio of loaning a portion of one's built up equity in a paid off home was a very safe bet, until houses went down in value by 50%. 

Yet credit card debt, the unsecured debt that is supposedly easy to weasel out of, has actually now increased by a huge proportion when compared to the overall value of consumer owned property!
We've had a stock market and housing market value "correction", now it is time for a credit card debt correction as well!
Credit card debt older than three years should have ALL interest fees retroactively waived from the three year mark and older for those who want to pay down their older credit card debt.  

Paying down old credit card debt would be an incredible stimulus package for the ENTIRE economy. Incentive based credit card debt paydown plans are a superior stimulus package program when compared to the punitive based "gotcha trapped" programs the banks and Bernanke have come up with that represent not much more than mobster in suit and tie tactics.

Did the credit card reform bill address the issue of older credit card debt? Answer, no. Time for another credit card reform bill.

Credit Card Default Numbers. What the Main Stream Media DOES NOT tell you is what matters most.

As I learn more and more about the credit card industry, I am beginning to find very deceitful articles coming out of the AP.

Either the credit card article is deceitful, or the writer has chosen to simply interview a banking industry "expert" and condense their words into a Public Relations fluff piece while proclaiming it as news.

The next time you read that credit card default rates are rising, ask yourself this question, "Is there a relationship between the consumer credit card default rate, and the credit card interest rate"? Of course there is a relationship between the two.

I'll go one step farther. It likely that for each percentage percent the credit card industry raises interest rates, there will be a corresponding rise of AT LEAST one percent in the default rate. So what does that mean? It means the credit card companies are on a self fulfilling prophecy to cause the default rate to rise even as they cry about it and expect sympathy!

This is just nuts!

This means our mainstream media has become so complicit when it comes to reporting financial "noose" around the consumers neck news that all I can say is be thankful that the mainstream media is not the only ones reporting what is happening, (ahem, internet blogs).

The next time you read a "report" about the credit card default rate with no mention of the rise in credit card interest rates as being the direct cause for the default rise, take a moment and reflect on how far our mainstream media has fallen in their quest to expose the real truth behind current financial and economic trends.

What's in Your Wallet? Possibly the X-RAY EYES of your Credit Card Company.

If a credit card company can prove a SIGNIFICANTLY higher default rate based on the types of purchase one makes with their credit card, they may actually reduce that customers credit line.  I can understand that line of thought.

The key is to make sure the difference in the default rate is VERY VERY SIGNIFICANT.

I can however blame the credit card companies for raising interest rates on practically all of their customers while not offering any incentive based credit card offers for those who want to lower their debt and have always been good solid customers.

The credit card companies seem bereft in not helping or trusting customers who have shown loyalty and trustworthiness over the years.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT, DAILY-PROTEST Will be Changing how it reports the fight against Chase Bank and the Credit Card Industry.

The amount of reporting on the credit card industry that is required to keep up on a daily basis has caused me to spend so much time simply monitoring the newswires and then writing articles that I cannot protest daily in public as I originally wanted to do.

That's right, the level of egregiousness by the credit card companies is so vast, I can't be two places at once.

This is not necessarily a bad thing. This past Saturday, Daily-Protest attended the John and Ken Tax Revolt Rally #2 held at Tom's Farm in Corona, California, and took a lot of photos and posted them in prior articles.  

The very next day, Daily-Protest published five different stories on the credit card industry and Chase Bank, yet it didn't make sense to give them Titles with the Daily Protest, day number so and so, on them. So, I've decided to abandon numbering every day of the protest against Chase Bank because there are going to be many articles that are about credit card issues outside of actually protesting Chase Bank.

Instead, the daily protest number "so and so" will only appear when I actually am able to protest on the streets. On days that I don't protest on the streets, you can be pretty certain there will be at least one or two new stories about new ways the credit card industry and Chase Bank have found to make the lives of some their customers unreasonably unfair. 

The order of importance in the future for this blog will be, rooting out all the horrible things that Chase Bank and the Credit Card Industry are doing to the american consumer, and doing it oh so unnecessarily.

Secondly, getting store owners to put up a Daily-Protest sign in their window will be where I devote my time INSTEAD of protesting. The more places that put my Daily-Protest sign, the more that will raise awareness than my protesting will from one spot will.  

Thirdly, I will put time into actually protesting, but only after all of my too many to count family obligations are met first.

I am comfortable with that order for now.  In the meantime, you can help out by putting a Daily-Protest.com sign in a storefront window, a bulletin board, or a counter top.  You just never know how deep the credit card offensive really runs, nor how many people the credit card industry has really hurt.  Chance are that your business or your place of employment has suffered a direct hit because of the credit card companies, you just may not know about it.

DAY-43 CHASE BANK PROTEST, MORE Proposition 1A Photos from the John and Ken Tax Revolt Rally in Corona at Tom's Farm.

Ten More Photos of the John and Ken Tax Revolt Rally can be found on a prior Daily-Protest article by clicking here.

DAY-42, CHASE BANK PROTEST, Chase customers tell their stories at the KFI-640 AM John and Ken Tax Revolt Rally #2 at Tom's Farm.


While I was snapping photos and videotaping at the John and Ken Tax Revolt Rally #2 at Tom's Farm,  People saw my "Chase Bank, Keep your word" Protest sign and they shared their stories about Chase.

The basic premise was always the same.  NO NEGOTATING of any kind by Chase. In more than a couple of instances, people just stopped paying their Chase account because of the lack of negotiating by Chase Bank.

There is something very devious going on by the banking industry.  It appears they can make more money by defaulting their customers than by helping them.

John and Ken of KFI host Tax Revolt 2009: Rally #2, Saturday, May 16, 2009 in Corona, California at Tom's Farm.


I fully support John and Ken's Tax Revolt and want to also point out that if governments are feeling the heat of less and less revenue coming in, THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD GO AFTER THE CREDIT CARD COMPANIES and their idiotic policies in this time of trouble.

There is a big scandal brewing over the credit card companies willingness to default as many of their customers as possible. The more credit card interest charges those in debt are forced to pay on their old debts, the less money there is to circulate in every city in america's local economy every paycheck.

Credit Card Companies should have been backing incentive based credit card payback debt programs rather than the punitive programs they are using to keep ratcheting up credit card interest rates higher and higher.  

It's this simple, every point the credit card companies raise interest rates results in a one point higher default rate.  So you do the math, do you keep raising interest rates, resulting in a corresponding increase in the credit card default rate, or do you figure something else out?

If there is a conspiracy theory, it appears that the credit card industry wants to lower as many people's credit rating as soon as possible before Congress passes their toothless credit card bill that takes effect next year. 

Vote no on California Props 1A through 1F, but then lets go after the credit card industry and how they are mishandling the one trillion dollars in credit card debt that continues to suffocate consumers in practically every city in the country, on a daily basis.

DAY-38, Chase Bank Protest. Having trouble keeping up with all the stories about Chase Bank and the Credit Card Indusry.

It would actually be easier to go protest for an hour in front of a Chase Bank, come back, and write about it, then pouring over the numerous internet articles about Chase Bank and the Credit Card Industry that I read every day. I wish I could do both.

I hope to get back to my on the street protesting soon.  In the meantime, my father's death has left me with so much more to do on a daily basis it has been quite an experience.  

I think I came up with an idea for a book about my dad.  

Any suggestion for book writing software?  The book will have lots of pictures in it, perhaps even one per page. I'll be self publishing it.

Bernie Madoff January AMEX statement. How Bernie "Made Off" with the loot month after month.


I wonder how much Bernie Madoff's family knew about Bernie's ponzie scheme.  Did Bernie wife, who spent over 28,000 dollars in January on "stuff", think everything was legit?

I guess it is possible the rest of the family did not understand what was going on, but it is also possible that Bernie made their ventures fail proof by simply piping in the money when necessary.


Don't be surprised if that missing 50 billion dollars is part of the reason that credit card companies jacked up the interest rates on their customers.

Beware the Credit Card Companies AND the ATM SKIMMERS that steal your info as you type it in the ATM KEY PAD!

Just when you thought the Credit Card Companies could not get any worse, along comes a mutant spawn strain of ATM thieves called "skimmers".  Sadly, it appears the skimmers don't get discovered right away because the credit card companies are already robbing everybody blind. (that was satire)

Wouldn't it be sad if the skimmers were stealing your money as well, but it was less than the fees that the credit card companies were currently charging you?  Maybe the theft would not even qualify as stealing. (that was satire)

I can hear the credit card customer service rep now. "Um, we can't classify those transactions as thefts since they total less than your monthly fees and charges. Sorry"...."Please read the fine print in your terms and agreements, all suspicious transactions under 100 dollars CANNOT be reported." (that was more satire).

CREDIT CARD INDUSTRY'S EVIL TENTACLES EXTEND AROUND THE GLOBE.

Credit Card Companies may be doing even worse things in other parts of the world than in the United States. In this instance, the home mortgage company is shown to be much more flexible than the credit card company.

“Unfortunately, he built up debt on the card, and like other consumers have found that it can be the smaller credit card debts – rather than mortgage debt – that pushes them over the edge.” Citibank have filed a legal claim and my fear is that although he has managed to ensure that his mortgage is almost up to date he could potentially lose his house over a credit card.” Ms

Williams said.

Day-36, Chase Bank Protest. ATTENTION Democratic Senator Richard Durbin, I'm Ready, Willing, and Available to be a Consumer Watchdog.

Democratic Senator Richard Durbin, I, Alessandro Machi, publicly claim to be a consumer advocate watchdog. Over the years I have done my own form of consumer activism on a very local level. I also was one of the first to out a trust company scam had sales people coming to people's homes to "update trust accounts" but was actually a front that enticed California senior citizens to put their life savings in uninsured accounts.

One of the things I am most proud of is writing every attorney's general in the United States back in 2004 and protesting GM Card changing terms without allowing me to opt out of the change in terms.

Five years later and this has become one of the biggest issues in regards to credit card companies.  My idea back then is only now, five years later, being considered.

Notifying somebody 45 days advance notice that their credit card interest rate is going up becomes irrelevant if the customer is not allowed to stop the change in terms by opting out. 

Nor should opting out be cause for the credit industry to lower one's credit score since it is actually represents a consumer being responsible with their credit.

Being responsible when it comes to credit should never lower one's credit score.  Creating incentive based credit card programs is something I have been suggesting for the past several days, and it is an idea that I probably am the first to suggest.

Day-35, Chase Bank Protest, Mothers day. A Shocking amount of stories trying to justify banks lowering credit lines ACROSS THE BOARD!

Sunday, May 10, was spent chronicling several stories about how the banks are justified in lowering credit card credit lines, even on their best customers. Thankfully, there are honest people out there telling the truth about how bad our economy is. 

However, it is important to realize that the fulcrum of the world's economies failing is the credit card divisions and their suffocating methods involving punishing their best customers when incentive based credit card programs would work much much better.

I have been protesting from home the past 10 days, writing many many articles for both
Daily-Protest.com and also a series about Oprah Winfrey and her reluctance to do a television show with the credit card companies and point out their wrongness.

I've also identified some very important blog articles about how bad our economy presently is.
Asia Today Global economy article.

Five Economic Storms

Did Oprah ask Barack Obama to do a town hall meeting about credit cards to take pressure of her for NOT doing a TV show about this.

Oprah Winfrey "Let them eat Chicken" seems to matter more than fighting for her own viewers versus the credit card companies.

There have been a ton of family issues since the passing of my father that require attention on a daily basis. Taking care of mom, tributing my fathers garden by growing all the food he would grow every year, trying to keep our 13 year old shitzsu alive and healthy, all the paperwork and bills, trying to clean house, both inside and out...

...And continuing doing my video business. I recently found out that the person I videotaped for america's got talent was advanced to the next preliminary screening round based on the video (and their performance of course). Juggling all of these things is very very difficult. 

I will gladly post pictures of anybody who bothers to put up a daily-protest sign in a storefront window, bulletin board, or countertop.

And ANOTHER Mothers Day Credit Card Story that tries to paint the banks in a sympathetic light over their credit card policies.


People can no longer afford to tread water nor go even more debt because of these usurious rates, yet the credit card companies now can't make enough money because these afflicted debtors, who could afford to pay down reasonable interest rates, have given up trying to pay down rates that would do any mafia gangster proud.

Did you hear the one about being one day late on a payment that then results in a 150 dollar late fee penalty on a 5,000 dollar debt?   

Gangstas the world wide are crying tears of joy as they see that they were just ahead of their time.  Meanwhile Barack Obama plans on a town hall meeting.  Did you hear the one about how the titantic crew called a town hall meeting while the titantic was sinking.  Neither did I.

Is Mothers Day Bloody Sunday for the Credit Card Industry? Too many articles about why the banks are being "responsible" in their idiotic methods.


The idea that the banks and credit card companies are hurting you so they can help you appears to be the new plan of attack by the banking industry to try and steer the subject away from their punitive credit card policies when incentive based policies would work much much better.

Who is left to trust?

Los Angeles Times Liz Pulliam Weston, Credit Card Industry apologist and apparently proud of it, and no way to contact her either!

What absolutely trashy and incorrect information Liz Pulliam Weston doles out on a regular basis for the Los Angeles Times about credit cards in her money talk column.

I feel badly for anybody who writes this person expecting to get some kind of help. Even worse is the realization nothing will come of it but an explanation as to why the credit card companies can do what they want, and you can't do anything about it.


What makes the answer so horrible is that Ms. Weston is basically saying that a credit card company can offer a customer a 3.99 life of the loan offer, and even though the actual monthly interest rate can climb to 10% once the 10 dollar a month fee is added in, that somehow this is entirely legal.

lol, as most of us know, Chase bank rescinded the 10 dollar a month fee specifically because on their own billing system it showed the 3.99 interest rate had suddenly jumped to a much higher rate depending on how much balance still remained to be paid.  The lower the remaining balance, the higher the overall interest rate would jump up to.

Sadly, the LA times has chosen to insulate Ms. Weston from all forms of informational responses.  Not only can Ms. Weston make incorrect statements in her article, nobody can contact her or comment on her articles in an effort to explain that which she does not understand. 

Nice job LA times. How is that Chase Bank advertising money flowing in these days?  It sure looks like it must be coming in nice and steady for you to put out disinformation that protects the credit card companies.

Nowhere does Liz  Pulliam Weston mention the idea of opting out of the credit card agreement after Chase Bank has changed the terms.  Liz Pulliam Weston also does not mention that Chase Bank DID NOT ALLOW the customer the right to opt out of this change in terms in her column by ignoring the concept of opting out all together!

Lies that protect illegal banking methods while trying to mollify the reader into accepting anything unethical that the banking community attempts to do is a horrible, filthy way the Los Angeles Times has chosen to fill it's newspaper space with.

Motley Fool outdoes their own stupidity with this gem, wow.

I've received the Motley Fool Newsletter for well over a year now.  I cannot begin to tell you how many stupid and idiotic stock market predictions they have made during that time.  Oh, the market should be bottoming out now, don't wait too long to get back in,  If I had a dollar for every time they wrote that ditty....

Well, Motley Fool just topped themselves with this amazing credit card topic that appeared in their forum section. I can't begin to believe these idiots actually believe the things they and their forum buddies are commenting on about rising credit card interest rates.
