    Default Operation Choke Point

    The Justice Department's "Operation Choke Point" is said to be targeted at online payday lenders that lend into states that prohibit payday lending. But the operation is being pushed far beyond its stated objective of targeting online payday lenders violating state laws and is having potentially devastating impact on lawful check cashing and small loan businesses. This in turn will cut off tens of millions of people from much needed access to money to meet emergency needs.

    Now, news is slowly surfacing that shows the US Department of Justice may be strong-arming banks into banning porn stars.

    It’s called Operation Choke Point, and it has nothing to do with deep-throating.

    Instead, it’s a targeted effort to shut down as many as 30 separate industries by making it impossible for them to access banking services.

    In a Wall Street Journal op-ed Thursday, American Banking Association CEO Frank Keating wrote that the Justice Department is “telling bankers to behave like policemen and judges.”

    “Operation Choke Point is asking banks to identify customers who may be breaking the law or simply doing something government officials don’t like,” Keating wrote. “Banks must then ‘choke off’ those customers’ access to financial services, shutting down their accounts.”

    Sounds like financial discrimination to me and besides that, why the hell wouldn't you take a porn stars money? The morality of this country went out the window long ago so this makes no sense to me at all.

    I saw the title and was expecting a Carmen Luvana video.

    A little disappointed to be honest with you.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
