Why no respect for Chicago? It’s been 30 years since the game was at Wrigley — and 2003 since the Chicago AL tram hosted.These are special circumstances.
I say give it to whatever city will most upset those in favor of voter suppression: Washington, Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Toronto, San Juan, Paris, wherever!
Today, the NYT reported/estimated that this deceptive practice accounted for up to 3% of all credit card fraud claims.It's always a scam:
Online donors were guided into weekly recurring contributions. Demands for refunds spiked. Complaints to banks and credit card companies soared. But the money helped keep Donald Trump’s struggling campaign afloat.www.google.com
A strong lesson in READING EVERYTHING on a website/page before signing away your money.For donating to Trump it’s really hard to feel sorry for these people....
Yep. The beauty club, Stitch Fix, Wine, Home Meals - free or reduced trial. But you must submit a credit or debit card number.A strong lesson in READING EVERYTHING on a website/page before signing away your money.
Several years ago, Kate Hudson repped this athletic wear company called "Fabletics," and they were all over Facebook, offering a one time, full workout outfit for $25. That was until you got to the page where you'd commit your money and THEN they explained you were signing up for monthly "subscription" to make a purchase every month (who the hell needs a new workout outfit every month unless you're a personal trainer/gym class employee????). Now, this was not hidden in the fine print, but it was still easy to miss, because they waited until you got good and excited about your $25 outfit to bring it up - it was on the "click and pay" page. Do I need to tell you many, many women got stuck with a subscription that was difficult to cancel? But still, it was technically their own fault even though the company's methods were pretty shifty. Fabletics is still going, but they're website is now much more open about the fact that it's a subscription club. Full disclosure: I almost went for the deal but then I read about the "VIP" member requirement to get it and didn't sign up. And Kate is still associated with them; in fact this seems to have pretty much replaced her movie career.
And if you sign up, you have to follow it carefully. My SIL got us a free week of meals with "Hello, Fresh" and we signed up. That said, I'm monitoring the weekly emails carefully to skip when we don't want a new one.Yep. The beauty club, Stitch Fix, Wine, Home Meals - free or reduced trial.

And its not easy to find the cancel subscription on their webpages.
So you're saying that the problem is that all those Trump supporters are stupid, is that it?If you donate to a lot of democrats you know sometimes monthly is default sometimes single is default. If dumb people can’t read that’s their own fault! It’s clearly indicated what you are doing.
Everyone can look and see! On all republican donation pages you see a check Mark in a box saying monthly recurring. You click the box to make it go away making it a single one time donation. That’s different than democrats. Most democrats have single being the default. Sometimes monthly is the default. But it’s very clear you just have to read. No sympathy whatsoever! Do these people have a time limit on their internet? They have to race and not read?
Hmmm I got caught out with Norton Anti-***** because I didn't untick the automatic renewal box. When my subscription was due for renewal it took money out. I complained and got my money back and then renewed at a discounted price.I agree with you, but the fact that they thought they were contributing a single donation but were billed on a monthly basis without their consent is reprehensible.
I got suckered into one of those meal plans, might have been HF too. After a couple weeks of full price after the initial deal, it was just too expensive. A small one layer piece of lasagna was like 10 or 12 dollars! I can get a family size meat lovers Stauffers lasagna which was like 4 times bigger for half the cost! Anyway, it took a couple cycles before they finally stopped charging me (I decided to just eat what they sent instead of sending it back, but sheesh they kept sending the shit... jeezuz.) Good riddance. I also signed up for ESPN to watch the USOpen one year and I literally could not stop the payments, and I pay attention to that crap and don't get suckered into things like that. But I did, and ESPN wouldn't budge. I finally had to cancel the credit card and get a new number.And if you sign up, you have to follow it carefully.

This is the reason that every year, after DH and I do the required "Sirius XM dance" on the phone with them to get a lower price, we tell them to bill us and we send them a check. No way are we EVER giving them a credit card number.Hmmm I got caught out with Norton Anti-***** because I didn't untick the automatic renewal box.

Trump was using a tactic that many companies use, regardless of how unethical it is. You should have to tick the box to automatically renew, not vice-versa. Still I would have other questions about what the money they were donating was being used for as Trump is as shady as sh*t and a conman.
Fear of the other and entitlement will do it every time and sadly has done throughout world history.Interesting article about insurrectionists coming from areas where the white population had declined:
Counties with the most significant declines in the non-Hispanic white population were the most likely to produce insurrectionists.www.nytimes.com
If the GOP didn't have hate, they wouldn't have anything.LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas lawmakers enact ban on gender confirming treatments, surgery for transgender youth, overriding governor.
This is hateful.
This is exactly why the Governor vetoed the bill. He said it was a gross governmental overreach. Which it is. And which the GOP used to be against.If the GOP didn't have hate, they wouldn't have anything.
There are some people who identify as Republican but really aren't, if they really look at what the party stands for now.
