This falls into the "You gotta be pulling my leg" stuff. Seems a nice man decided to pay down his credit card balance. Guess who paid attention?

You got to read this. You can't make up something this asinine!

"They paid down some debt. The balance on their JCPenney Platinum MasterCard had gotten to an unhealthy level. So they sent in a large payment, a check for $6,522."

Gee, didn't dear old OCC want us all to do that? But wait, it gets....um....

"They were told, as they moved up the managerial ladder at the call center, that the amount they had sent in was much larger than their normal monthly payment. And if the increase hits a certain percentage higher than that normal payment, Homeland Security has to be notified. And the money doesn't move until the threat alert is lifted."

Do effing WHAT?

Oh, it makes sense, sort of, in a Hitlerian fashion, a rip on the same "tip" the IRS uses to catch huge transactions to hide drug deals, etc.

But this is ludicrous to say the least. Imagine deciding to pay cash, is that's next, correct? Save up and buy something big and what, FBI at the door?

Now, one more time, you wanna ask me why I throw the word "fascist" out so much? Need I more proof?

Oh, well, just another day here in The Fourth Reich...
