Time to cut up Washington’s credit card
News from Las Vegas Review-Journal:

To the editor:

Wow, the eleventh hour reprieve. Our politicians have a flair for the dramatics.

For years now, our government has played a game of high-stakes poker with the American people’s way of life, when each side bet and raised its version of what would solve our debt crisis. The sad thing is that each side really was proposing very similar deals but in fact none of the deals will do anything to cut federal spending. It’s like maxing out your credit card and then borrowing money to make the payments while asking the bank to up your credit limit.

Our government is the only one to blame for our $ 14 trillion debt. Now they want us to believe that $ 3 trillion in cuts over 10 years is going to help. They have to be kidding since the CBO’s latest figures show the government is projected to spend $ 46 trillion over the next decade.

ARREST LOG: Nashua Woman Charged for Fraudlent Credit Card Use
News from Patch.com:

A Nashua woman was charged with theft of lost or mislaid property after fraudulently using a credit card left behind at her place of employment.

Ennovi Burgos, 19, of 10 Hanover St., Nashua, turned herself in on July 27 for using a debit card for her own purposes after a customer accidentally left it behind on July 11.

The woman who left the card had presented it to an employee at a local drive-through restaurant and left without getting her card back, police say.

On July 12, the woman realized she didn’t have her card and realized she’d left it at the restaurant. When she called an employee said they had her card. However, while at home, the victim received a call from her credit card company’s fraud division, alerting her to a purchase she didn’t make, police say.

It was determined that Burgos had used the card and a warrant was issued for her arrest.

She was released on $ 750 personal recognizance bail and ordered to appear in court on Aug. 23.
