Column: Banks now have fees for everything

HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody?

The Nashville Tennessean reports a man in Tennessee was arrested after he was caught trying to have sex with an ATM machine last Friday. It was costly. He got a night in the drunk tank, a lewd conduct charge, and a thirty-six dollar early withdrawal fee from Bank of America.

The White House was reported Tuesday to be considering an executive order allowing illegal aliens to serve in the U.S. military. The idea makes sense strategically. If we ever decide to invade the United States of America, we will have experienced troops leading the first wave.

Vladimir Putin said Barack Obama is re-starting the Cold War Tuesday as Prince Charles publicly likened Putin to Hitler. The U.S. indicted the Chinese for hacking, and China did troop exercises with Russia, who test-fired an ICBM. North Korea just urged everyone to settle down.

The White House vowed to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by year's end. That's if they agree to leave. If given the choice between surviving Taliban attacks in the Afghan mountains and surviving VA care when they get home, they like their chances in the mountains.

President Obama explained he didn't know about the VA hospital scandal until he heard about it from reporters Monday. That's pretty much the pattern. President Obama doesn't hold press conferences to make news, he holds press conferences to find out what's in the news.
