The Gift that Keeps Giving

Business interests, particularly credit card companies, lobbied for years and spent millions of dollars to get the Bankruptcy Code amended to put the screws to consumers. They finally succeeded, and their amendments went into effect a couple of months ago.

So in this season of consumerism and hype, remember this: that annoying person in front of you in line at the cash register, who is taking up way too much time and pissing everyone off, might end up indentured for life to MasterCard because of the charge he's about to make.

There: doesn't that feel better?

Merry Christmas.
