Head's up, 🧡's up: We have been receiving calls about water bills being higher than normal. This is likely due to the annual stormwater fee that appears on this month's bill. There is a way to prorate this fee over 12 months. More on that further down...

The most telling part of this is "congressional commission has discovered." If they would do the job we pay them for, they would have discovered this long ago. But I guess I already knew our government was nothing but a bunch of racist asswipes, all branches, both major parties.

A Ku Klux Klan plaque is affixed to the entrance of the United States Military Academy's science center at West Point, a congressional commission has discovered.

This is the time of year when the annual Stormwater Utility Fee appears on water utility bills (see image below). To switch from an annual fee to a pro-rated monthly fee contact Durham One Call at 919-560-1200. What does this fee do? Well...

Great! So make me pay for more commercials. While I do see the benefits of Amazon Prime, this Disney crap just stinks. I mean Prime gives us grocery delivery, free shipping, much more, not just some discounted merch I don’t really want and all the extra ads to go with it.

It's one thing to pay property taxes and abide by the law. It's another thing entirely to have to put up with additional restrictions and fees imposed by a private entity. So glad we didn’t get ourselves into a mess like this.

Moving into an HOA neighborhood? We’ve got 10 common HOA restrictions you should know about before you buy.

Starting September 30, US wireless carriers will require special registration of "toll-free" numbers or they will block texts. This proves what I've known for many years. FREE does not mean SPAM, and scammers will gladly pay more for magically trustworthy names and numbers.

This unnamed company boasts transparency and no fine print or misleading promos. But is it as transparent as it claims to be?

LOL nice one ...
"no surprise fees, misleading promos, no fine print."
From the fine print they say they don't have:
"National Plans are provided primarily for continuous live dialog between two individuals. Unusual call patterns, excessive conferencing or call forwarding, excessive numbers and/or consistent excessive usage will be considered indicators of non-residential use."
This is just one example of such fairly ambiguous terms. So just for starters, if I get a lot of calls that are forwarded to voicemail, that could be deemed excessive, and my account could be terminated or my plan changed. So much for no fine print and total transparency. Well, the person I'm shopping for doesn't really talk much, so this fine print may not be such a problem. There is something about excessive tethering as well, complete with an account review if they find it excessive, but maybe that could be less of a problem seeing as how tethering isn't used much. Still, there is the residential, non-commercial clause near the top, which would indicate that if you go live and ask for a donation or similar, they could deem that non-residential and commercial usage. They do have real humans though, so maybe we can ask someone for help understanding all this fine print they don't want us to know about in the name of transparency. Thing is I simply can't stand companies who claim transparency and then bury those little gotchas in the fine print they told us doesn't exist.

LOL I love these so-called budgeting apps that claim to lower my bills and cancel unwanted subscriptions while making me pay another bill for another unwanted subscription, which I’m sure covers their ad budget.

Lowering bills does take some work, and usually means shopping for the best service for the best price, but it still costs nothing. Many utilities don’t have choices, and there's not much to be done for groceries these days except cash back and things like that.
Kyle πŸŽ™ 🎢 friendica (via Twitter)
Still, none of this should cost money. It sure makes gobs of sense to pay a bill to lower bills, or the other new trend, paying yet another bill for what is essentially a savings account. I see lots of these now as well.

I see several apps that round up purchases to save or invest money. Many claim to bring the "change jar" into the 21st century. But using the same analogy, a robber will come in and steal anywhere from $3 to $10 out of my change jar each month. My bank doesn't steal from me like this.

Hi, #. From July 31st, SaitaMask is not going to be available anymore. So, make sure you have your seed phrase (write it down) to access your tokens in other wallets. Never share your seed phrase with anyone! Beware of scams. # # #

Actually this is how American politics work. We do have an emperor, even though the face of that emperor changes every 4 to 8 years. The Fortune 500 is the real emperor here, no matter the president.
