When both of my daughters were of age to get a Driver Learner Permit and then get a full license at age 16; I said to them: Driveing a car is like walking down a street with a loaded gun.
You can kill someone, even if you didn't mean to.
It's up to you to be fully aware of yourself, and those around you.
Well, now that you have stated Brass Tacks, as my Grammy used to say; who's zoomin/ who?
Thank you, Areatha.
I think you nailed it.
Not to dimiss the fact that some of our own banks need major propping up, to this day.
Just a review for those who in the dark, so to speak: Every seller must have a buyer,. to claim a price.
I have a pair of hand fashioned jade earrings, in sterling silver, that I created from a bracelet I used to own, but broke.
Do I hear $3k?
Nobody gets a free ride.
Let's review: If I were making $50k per year, I might choose to buy a new car, but I probably couldn't swing a house payment, even at balllpark 4%, due to other personal debt loads like student loans and credit card debt.
I know what I do well.
I am unemployed, in Charlotte, NC, where folks tell me business is boomin'.
I see a very large number of cars on the driveways of my neighbors, every day, during normal work hours.
And I take another look 12 and 18 hours later, as I'm awake.
Those rides aren't takin' even shift workers to jobs.
Granted, my sister has 2 rides, and can only drive one at any given moment.
Our Bro and myself have vehicles which make 4 on the floor; as it were.
When 2 outta 3 over 45 years old folks are not working, that is a huge problem.
This is not a Retiree Community, It's much more for the Up and Sh
If you had a wife who spent like that, you would be CONcentrating on your bottom lin; as a wise man should.
I really would like to know.
Your words: "Congress is unfortunately part of the problem - those individuals are playing for themselves and their monied corporations. Long ago they have ceased to represent the people's interest. This definitely is not the democracy our founder's envisioned."
I couldn't have stated it better.
Applause to you.
I don;'t know about your personal debt load, but i KNOW THAT I owe a boatload to that co., via hell and high water; Today, BAC may very well own my debt. I have always paid them on time, and sometimes with interest
Your statement, and perhaps that will work for most.
I was once ost in the forest, and with a very\forest wise spouse.
I was almost 9 mos. pregnant, and we were hunting grouse, on the last day of the seasonm, and got lost.
Very easy to do, in the backasswoods of SE Alaska..
As a Reistered Republican, and from CA to NC; that experience was so sweet No one helped me, and my party affilation, which is none; Perhaps a Librtion on one side.
I do think NC might just have more closet repuds AND Dems than most see.
Just stating the facts: How will folks who were not previously MANdated to purchase Obamacare "affordable health care," now somehow find the money to buy stocks or, Jeez Louise, can we even call it?, "Christmas Presents."
I'm not going to buy a single gift for anyone, as I'm FORCED to purchase a Plan that has monthly preiums which exceed a brand new car with a modest DP and a realistic 3 year loan at GOSH, aren't these FANtastic low interest rates
Do Tell, how any Obamacare plan is gunna help me, and all have sch a ridiculous deductible.
That isn't heath insurance, by my book.
Maybe you better read mine.
I'm kinda wondering about how that there 3 day settlement doohickey works when I buy or sell within my regular or IRA brokerage account.
My Big Question is: Where is My money, honey?
I haven't heard a staight answer yet?
And, IF I sold my account today, would I be cashed out fully? Or would I have to wait 3 days for securities which have not yet been settled? What if I were in cash only? Can I walk in and receive either cash, or a check that my bank will accept, with no downslide to me, if it bounces?
I'm fairly certainly I have at least 2 of the hitches nailed into the shoes of the horse. Kinda funny, because I fell off a horse when I was about 5 years old; that was a long and hard drop; perhaps again when I was 12 or so.
A confident Broker, who uses X Clearighouse, Should feel that any check written to me on their co. account is good. I'm a very small client; no problems so far. And any and all checks I write on their bank will clear.
I'm not a forensic accountant, but my Grammy and my Mom showed me how, and when, tulip bulbs should be planted.
EBT shoppers can find very good values at WMT, as can the rest of us. The biggest problem I see is all the other merchandise that doesn't seem to move out the door, even at what appears to be reasonable prices. And most of the stores are very large.
It's actually scary that you might be correct on that 245 call; I'll say 230.
With a RECORD NUMBER of folks on Food Stamps, and 91.5 MILLION able bodied and willing to work folks like myself who are unemployed?
Do tell: Just who is buying all the products that these stocks produce?
Not I, nor most of those, except EBT is accepted at most FF joints, grocery stores, and the dollar stores.
And I don't think many folks who are on EBT are shopping at Whole Paycheck.
That's 47 million outta about 300 m who don't and some of those 300 m are well under 18 years of age?
Let's do some math...
Well, do tell, if you have a better Signal? Nas at the HOD, S&P near HOD, and the DOW just under a minus pt.
He didn't need them to read the script he has probably already memorized.
And Big Sue with Helmet Hair in Bull Red; a down day will be very small, if at all. Naz is already green.
I think it was on Drudge yesterday, about a Camel in Saudi Arabia being diagnosed with MERS.
The current price per BBL must be on the table???
