Cut the Cord

Cable is crazy expensive. Even when I wasn't a Broke-ass™ I wasn't willing to pay $100 plus for 500 channels that I didn't watch. Plus Spectrum is an evil empire and we are the rebel alliance.

Class Action Lawsuit Settlements

Class Action Settlement

America is a great and litigious nation. We operate on a few immutable truths. MTA is ATM backwards, that guy swinging his unused cane around like a 30's gangster has a Comp case that pays him more money you make with your aching back, and if you get margarine rather than butter on your bagel, …
