Putting Our Money Where Our Mouth Is

Almost a decade ago I opened two online accounts; a savings account with ING & a stock investment account with Sharebuilder. A few years ago, they merged, which was pretty cool for us, seeing as it meant easy transfers between the two accounts.

And then last year they were bought out by Capital One.

At the time we rolled our eyes, because of the company’s use of the seemingly perpetually angry and child-like lefty actor, Alec Baldwin, in their ads. Then this whole situation lately pissed me off so much, that I finally closed these accounts.

So… “What situation?” you might ask.

Well a couple of weeks ago, it came to light that the genial, butter-loving tv cook, Paula Deen, had uttered the dreaded epithet “nigger” when describing a black assailant thirty years ago. Consequently, she seems to have lost her tv slot(s) and a ton of endorsements, thanks mostly to the outrage from the lefties.

Barely a week goes by and Mr. Baldwin gets angry at the suggestion by a reporter that his wife tweeted during the funeral of the late actor James Gandolfini, which is understandable, I’ll admit. So, a tirade from Baldwin to the journo ensued, via Twitter, culminating with the long-since deleted tweet:

“I’m gonna find you George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I’m gonna f**k you… up.”

As far as I can tell, the lefties just carried on, ignoring it without batting an eyelid. In fact, GLAAD pretty much gave him a pass:

I’m assuming that the disparate reactions to the two situations by the lefties are either misogynistic or that they all just assumed that Ms. Deen was a Republican, (which she isn’t!), so ruining her would be OK. Maybe both!

Last week, I got a solicitation letter from Capital One, for one of their MasterCard credit cards, which prompted this tweet from me:

And so, the final cords were cut today, when I closed the two accounts. Unfortunately the options in the dropdown menu asking why I was closing the accounts didn’t have an option “Because the person in our ads needs some serious counselling”…


As a final aside, the total in these accounts was less than $2, which funnily enough is about as much as we have in our checking account, so I’m going to take this opportunity to shake the old coffee can and ask if you could drop a little loose change in there! Thanks!
