California Public Utilities Commission(CPUC) comes out against the AT&T/T-Mobile Deal

This is great news for consumers:

California Public Utilities Commission–which is reviewing the AT&T deal –said the takeover would harm competition in the largest U.S. state by population and urged the full commission to reject the deal.

“The increased market concentration would cement AT&T’s role as a gatekeeper in the telecommunications markets, not only for wireless services, but wireline as well,” the Division of Ratepayer Advocates wrote in a filing released today. “This merger is nothing more than an attempt by AT&T to stifle competition by acquiring an unprecedented amount of spectrum and controlling other key inputs of wireless service.”

Bank Debit Card Fees Bank of America @bofa

Debit Card Fees at Bank of America will start to charge you $5 per month for using your debit card at merchants. I am not a big fan of debit cards, and banks that do this are tricking customers. Basically they are doing this because they are not making money off of charging you interest like would happen on a credit card.

Wells Fargo is already doing this, expect other banks to do the same think.

So use caution when using your debit cards. The fee for debit card use has a new Federal limit of $.24.

The banks have condition us to use debit cards, now the only place we don’t get charged is to use the banks atm and withdraw cash, but don’t be surprised if there is a fee for that.

Banks need to make money, as the interest rates drop, but they are making it on the backs of the hard working class. It is just wrong.  People are going to move to a cash, keeping their money out of the banks, because all they do is make money with our money and then charge us all sorts of fees for services.

Many banks even charge for writing checks.

Here’s the story from Reuters:

Service People In Foreclosure?

Does it bother anyone else besides me that our men and women of the service can lose their homes to foreclosure WHILE they are away serving our country? Is that insane?  People who are dying for our country can come home and have NO home.

We have become supporters of USA CARES and are trying to help these service men and women. This weekend we are having a small, intimate two-day training in Philly.  All admission fees to the TWO-DAY “Hands On” Short Sale Workshop will be donated to USA CARES. You can attend the workshop for a small donation to USA CARES. Bring a check made payable to USA Cares in the amount of $25 or more and claim your seat –

This class will be unlike anything you have ever attended: We are bringing actual short sale files that we are working on and will be working these open files in class.  Each person will be assigned a file and taught how to work that file in a step-by-step order so that they can close deals for the highest profits possible.

Register today – – this class is for 40 VERY lucky investors who want to get their hands dirty and dig into actual live, active files and truly see what this crazy-fun business is all about.

See you in Philly!

Be a Blessing,

Dwan Bent-Twyford

PS – Even if you can’t make the class, share this link – – with your friends.  If we all gave just $25 and each of your friends gave just $25, you would not believe what this would do for USA CARES!

Remember, these men and women are the very reason you have the freedom to read this email.

Lemonade LA Opens in Pasadena

September 8, 2011 was the soft opening

Lemonade in Pasadena is now open. Lines form quickly and the workers get right on it to serve the patrons.

Here’s a panorama of the inside of Lemonade on Lake in Pasadena.

Other locations include:
Downtown LA
Coming soon to LAX and Manhattan Beach

The Venice location is by far the most popular with lines forming early shortly after opening and running late into the night.

We learned a little about the open nature of the salads, the trays are kept at 40 degrees and are switched out every 30 minutes or even more frequently.

All ingredients are fresh and organic.
