Bank of America's Debit Card Charge The Bank of America says new financial regulations are costing big money, and it's going to charge ordinary consumers to help make up the difference. It will now cost $5 a month to use debit cards instead of cash at shops, restaurants and gas stations. Illinois' Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who was a supporter of finance reform, has accused the Bank of America of trying to "pad their profits" by "sticking it to their customers."

Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border?
