Observations While Driving This Morning

I
Many of the meteorologists who deliver weather reports on KUHF seem to stumble over the pronunciation of meteorologist.

Just listen. It’ll bug you now, too. You’re welcome.

II
The constitution does not enumerate an inalienable right to drive 40 miles per hour on the freeway.

III
When are Christians™ going to get organized against title loans and payday lenders? People resort to extreme feats of exegetical gymnastics to attempt to justify bigotry, yet seem to ignore what I recall were pretty clear statements about money-changers and usurers. Many thanks to the CPPP for paying attention to this.

I wish we all had more bandwidth for activism. Time to take up coffee.

    To be fair, there was a decent amount of attention paid to the payday lending issue in the last legislative session, and much of it was driven by faith-based groups:

    In the end what we got wasn’t that much (http://offthekuff.com/wp/?p=37288) but it was a little step in the right direction.

      That’s good to point out. I wonder if we’ll ever see protesters out front handing out leaflets to clients, helping connect them to nonprofit & non- predatory credit counselors and gov’t agencies (the few we have left) that could help them.

  2. A 20% credit card is just ridiculous. 10% should be max, and if it’s too risky to give someone that rate – don’t give them credit!
