This is a rage diary about a sophisticated credit card scam and I am tired of these criminals getting away with their rip off.

|Health Care Fight Redux
Obviously, like many Kossacks, I have been following the health care fight for some time. Over the last 24 hours, it 'seems' that Americans have lost a major battle, but I am not sure. I want some ...

and if you are angry with them, I won't try to take that away from you. There are many legitimate reasons to be, especially if you are an employee. I fully support the Employment Free Choice Act, ...
