Don’t spend that unemployment check too fast. The government might ask you to pay it back.
Overpayments are a rampant problem in the unemployment insurance system. The federal government and states overpaid an estimated $14 billion in benefits in fiscal 2011, or roughly 11% of all the jobless benefits paid out, according to reports from the U.S. Labor Department.
Of the states, Indiana was the worst offender, making more improper payments than [...]
Lord knows we’ve had more than enough scandals ginned up by Wall Street over the years, and the message that banking executives proclaim after each is: “Don’t worry, we’ve learned that lesson, and it will never happen again.”
Which is how we got to the recent spectacle of Jamie Dimon, the chief executive officer ofJPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM), testifying twice before Congress that although the bank’s chief investment office was taking [...]

These guys have been pissing me off for so long. This is the reason why, I had to read the entire article because I had forgotten so many bad things this bank has done.

(NaturalNews) We are living through a time of great awakening. The people of our world are beginning to open their eyes and realize the stunning depth of the scams and collusion taking place all around them.

These scams are the very fabric of modern government, the mainstream [...]
Part of our struggle to defeat the enemy is understanding ourselves. Knowing what makes us tick is half the battle. If the enemy knows what makes us tick, and we don’t, the enemy will exploit that. Especially, our fears. Fear is an enemy’s greatest weapon. In countless ways, we are manipulated.
Yes, we know about the crisis/solution scams of government. Some don’t see this operating in religious empires. Some don’t see [...]

Finding a job these days is nothing like it used to be even 4 years ago. When I lost my job in 2006, I was able to secure employment within a mere 2 weeks, and had my choice between jobs that offered me a position. Since losing my job in July this year, I have responded to hundreds of job postings (many of which turn out to be [...]
There is nothing of any substance to support prices for either and plenty of items of substance to support their decline. Cash, gold and silver (in the hand) rules, always has, always will. Time to stampede to the exits before the next lemming beats you to the punch or you will be crushed. This is moving from fear to panic very quickly so know it!. A dead cat bounce suckers [...]
