It often concerns me when people don’t seem to understand something they should have learned about in high school such as writing a check, balancing a personal budget, and major differences between a bank and a credit union. Sarah Silverman explains why she left her bank for a credit union in a video for NowThis. Just when you thought you couldn’t politicize much more in America, the credit union has now fallen victim to it. There’s a lot of benefits to a credit union. I even advocate switching to them! There’s just one big problem: I don’t think Sarah Silverman or NowThis understand credit unions very well. Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, here’s the video so you can see what I’m talking about.
Last night, Rachel Maddow from MSNBC did an exposé on President Trump’s tax return from 2005. During the election, Mitt Romney claimed that Trump was hiding a bombshell in his tax returns. Thanks to Rachel Maddow, a bombshell was found. Perhaps it wasn’t the bombshell we were all thinking it would be. As Rachel Maddow found out, the problem with political bombshells is that you could wind up blowing yourself up if you play with them.
