Frequently asked questions about california lending rates

  • Make sure you draw up a contract. Include the terms (interest, payment schedule, etc.) As for the interest rate, you should charge him more than you could make if you had the money in a CD but less than he would have to pay from a bank. That way, it's fair to both of you. I would say 6% - 8% would be reasonable. And don't forget that the interest you earn is taxable.
  • Don't lend a friend or family any money no matter how much it is. I lent my father £800 not so long ago even though I didn't want to and I have yet to receive the 1st pound of that money back. Now I wish I didn't because I don't think I'll ever see that money again.
  • Yes they are mine! I took them a few days before my grandpas wedding in Yosemite California in February. It was a snowy day and if you looks there is snow my aunt and uncle took me up there. My camera is a digitall pink camera thats all i really know sorry, I am 14 years old. The ones that say texas are on my back porch!
  • Landscapes are my favorite genre of photography. You have visited beautiful locations and your pictures are bright and colorful (and how!) I do not know why people think you didn't take them. (They may be right, I have no way of knowing!) They were taken with a Sony P&S on auto, then heavily manipulated in post processing. Yosemite 010 was my favorite of the group, I also liked the tunnel shot. They are nice enough travel snaps of Yosemite except for the excessive contrast and saturation. They are not amazing or professional looking, but they are nice for your album. Enjoy them as mementos of your trip. It is not much use to randomly rate the snapshots from novice photographers. If I say they are a 2, how will that help you progress? The "gushers" may weigh in with their empty accolades of amazing, awesome, professional etc etc etc. It feels good to hear how amazing your photos are. We all like to hear good things! They are entitled to like a picture, of course, and everyone has a right to an opinion and to state that opinion.. But most of the gushers are teens who know very little about the craft and practically nothing about critique. Enjoy good remarks, but remember the source. You are at the beginning of the photography learning curve, as your pictures demonstrate. They have exposure and composition issues common to new and novice level photographers. In your case, also post processing issues unless you like color that makes your eyes bleed! You might get more detailed remarks/critique if you chose your favorite two or three and ask again. But to improve your skill you will have to put in some time and brain power to learning some basics of exposure and composition. Here is a link for beginning photographers: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.j...also: http://asp.photo.free.fr/Composition/pho...You can begin learning more about the craft, especially about lighting and composition. Many of your shots were taken in the flat light of midday. Landscapes are better shot in morning or late afternoon or around sunset or sunrise. That way the shadows lend form and definition and help the transition to dimensional rather than flat. Of course, when traveling on vacation sometimes you can't be at a location at the best time of day. That's how it goes. When the light is unfavorable, I like to shoot closeups sometimes, or look for something different than the usual vista. You also have a great deal of glare from shooting into the sun. Glare robs the natural contrast and rich color from the image. Of course, you have increased the contrast and saturation, in fact, you went way overboard. Tilt is seldom a good idea in a landscape. Keep those horizons level! The National Audubon Society has a nice little landscape book that you would find helpful, available on Amazon. Take a class or join a local club or group if possible to get real mentoring and feedback. Look at good images in books and magazines and pay attention to the lighting and composition. Think about each shot you make, and what you want the viewer to see and feel. Continue to learn and practice, and let up on the contrast and saturation slider! Keep at it, you have made a beginning. Photography is a fun hobby that you can enjoy for a lifetime. Best wishes and happy shooting!
  • I'm not sure why people here think you didn't take these pictures. Unlike the other responses though I would only call them average and give a rating of about 50 or 60. Landscapes need a degree of perfection and there is not enough control of shadow and highlight details in these pictures to be outstanding. A lot are taken with very high contrast light that perhaps your camera is not able to reproduce very well. There are ways around it by combining multiple photos at different exposures either by physically deconstructing them, separating the different problem areas and combining them into one shot or using the HDR feature which is available in Photoshop and other image editing software. HDRs can become unnatural looking and while some like this look I think the better representation would be to use the deconstruction method. I like yosemite 008 the best as it doesn't come across like your average tourist shot and the high contrast punch works with this image.
  • I dont see why they would say you didnt take them because in my opinion your pictures are average and wouldnt need to be faked. many of your photos are overedited, we all do it at times but I would say about half of your pictures the contrast is too high or the colors have been manipulated too much also I dont like the photos with the extreme tilts, many of your pictures also have a tilt to them that you can easily fix in photoshop and if they were fake a pro photographer would know that and have fixed them, however still they could be fake but i dont really give a hoot if they are, it would be kind of stupid for you to post a quesiton about photos you didnt take unless you were just really begging for attention. you need to work on your exposure levels, a few of your pictures are overexposed creating a just too bright effect also your horizon lines are a tad if-fy in some of your photos rating-in the middle with a 55.6
  • Very nice. But could use a bit more editting. Remember to take more than just one picture of one thing. Different angles can make a plain picture very very interesting. (: Be creative!! I love how the flower one is not in the center of the picture. THAT is creative. (: And make sure that every picture you take has an intention because ANYONE can sit there and snap a picture. D:
  • You a definite fantastical photographer! I give you a solid 95, for your skills are clear. I would just tell you to be careful about having so much contrast and using Photoshop too much. But you are still amazing!
  • at first i loved them... then i started thinking... somebody with this much talent wouldnt right and speak the way you do... then i saw somebody disprove you. and i think i have seen a few of these. judging by ur lack of traffic and lack of meta data and camera info. i dont belive that they're yours. otherwise they're GREAT!
  • i commented on a few (: really lovely. x
  • I have seen those pictures before, you did not take them, sorry.
  • I’m a Mortgage Loan Officer and my was given a New Purchase home loan referral by my cousin because his bank could not fund the loan. I was able to fund the loan and close the deal total commission off the deal was $7,320.00 and my cut was 75%, so I made $5,490 off the deal....I want to give him part of my commission because he referred the loan to me but don’t know how much I should offer him? Should it be a percentage of the commission? Or just a "Flat rate"? We have a very good relationship and I want to be fair with him and he said he would send me other loans his company is not able to fund, because I have more resources? I just want to be fair to him and not be greedy?
  • I appreciate your integrity and this is something that is worthy of discussion. Lending laws can significantly inhibit what you offer a person as a referral for a loan. In California for example, a licensed loan officer must share in the duties to share in the proceeds. There is strict guidelines to adhere to. If this guy is a friend and you do care about him I would work something OUTSIDE of a per arrangement deal. Anything you give him should be a gift and not taxable. Also, in research I have done I have found that $200 was determined to be a fair amount for a lead.
  • I have worked as a senior loan officer for seven years. I now work as an account executive. I'm the guy that always comes around to your net branches / banks and fund the loans that are hard as hell to do :). Personally, I think you should throw him an amount of around $250. Understandably, you wouldn't have the loan without him, but he will also show gratitude and be thankful you offered him any capital at all. $250 is a gracious amount considering it is your profession and not his.
  • it is not unlawful everywhere because of the fact the different answerer's might assist you to think of. In some states that's completely criminal with finished disclosure to the shopper, in others they have chanced on a criminal way around the regulation. the only thank you to renowned for beneficial is by calling the state genuine sources value the place the Realtor is approved.
  • Well, I can tell you that you will lose your license if you pay ANYONE a fee in Georgia for obtaining a loan. You must check your state's regulations to see if that holds true for you as well. Search your state and "Banking and Finance." Best of luck
  • it is ILLEGAL in every state to offer a referral fee. are you kidding? That's the fastest way to lose your license. You can only offer something if it benefits your borrower. You are exactly the black eye this industry tries to put ice on. wow
  • I will suggest that $500.00 is fair enough.Referral fees are very common in every state. Good luck.
  • Careful. Your state may not allow you to give anyone anything at all. Check first
  • I would give him a flat 1000.00. That would be very fair in my opinion.
  • With really good credit you are looking at $100k. Some banks would lend you the $300k with income less than that, but please figure out if you can really afford it or not. Find out what the payments are and simulate them for a few months (deposit the difference between your rent and the new payment in your savings account -- let's you see how the new payment affects your lifestyle and gives you a few bucks in savings). good luck! Total payment depends on taxes and insurance. The rest of payment is principal and interest. Since interest is the dominant cost in a home mortgage without knowing the interest rate, we can't tell you. A 30 year fixed at 5% is $1610 per month. A 30 year fixed at 6.5% is $1896 per month (just principal and interest. A 30 year fixed at 8% is $2201 per month (again, just principal and interest)
  • Most banks work on a formula where the maximum monthly principal, interest taxes and insurance payment amount they will give is 28% of your gross monthly salary, and 32% total debt to salary ratio. (Total debt will be mortgage payment, car loan, student loan, and revolving credit card debt). A $300k mortgage would cost approx $1750/mo, and assume taxes of $500 and insurance of 100, for a total of 2350. That would require approx 8500 a mo, or 102,000 a year. Your downpayment, and your car and student loans can affect that number as well.
  • After you accumulate some intelligent answers from this forum... take them and sit down with a referred loan officer to complete a full application and have your 3 credit scores ($20) pulled. From there you can be provided programs that you actually qualify for, and you can gauge what your monthly payments will be, and see what loan amount you qualify for. http://www.choicerealestate.net/20878.php
  • $80,000 with good credit and not much other debt would probably do it. But like everyone else is saying, it depends on a million different factors. Talk to a loan officer at your bank and a real estate agent.
  • I brother got approved for $350,000 making a little less than $60,000 year, however he has close to a 800 credit score. My guess would be $50,000 year. Good luck to ya.
  • It's so much about what you make, but rather about what you spend. Without knowing your other expenses, it's nearly imnpossible to answer this question.
  • That would vary on the current interest rate and your creidt rating
  • you would probably get a good interest rate... i found a mortgage calulator on this site so you can get an accurate answer.. this site has tons of information http://www.timmdelaney.comhttp://www.timmdelaney.com/PageManager/D...
  • Sounds like a pawn shop. Visit a reputable pawn shop and ask the owner.
  • Aye carumba! Research the laws to license a pawn shop.
  • take a look at www.prosper.com. it's a site for P2P borrowing and lending in the US territory
  • U.S. Bank has been advertising a lot for home equity loans, so I do assume they would also be a good choice for home loans.
  • with a credit score of 725 you shouldnt have a problem getting a loan you really need to get with a loan officer and they can tell you what to do to and the best loan for you or if you dont want to do that shop around yourself maybe try a credit union! I strive to have a credit score of 720 that is my personal goal for myself mines is 519 so tell me where can i get a loan lol! Good Luck and God Bless! You will be okay!
  • I have just heard from someone that in California they are working on passing "good samaritan insurance" law that would enable anyone uninsured to borrow insurance from an insured person to get treatment. I have heard that Family Practitioners association is working on this with one of the senators. Is this true? Would'n the insureds' rates go up after it is used over and over? I have to pay a lot for my insurance on my own, and although my heart goes out to uninsured, I would not be able to pay more if my rates went up....would become one of them! If you have heard anything about it, please let me know.
  • Have not heard of it, but your observations sound correct to me, and such a scheme could never be a substitute for universal health coverage which is the government's job. Candidates always promote this kind of coverage; elected officials never act upon it.
  • What was one consequence of the severe drought in the Great Plains during the 1930s? Farmers were forced to plant more corn and less wheat, which was more profitable. Many farmers left for California. Farmers developed more effective irrigation methods. Rains finally came and farms were revived. How did buying stocks on credit contribute to the Great Depression? Credit interest rates were too high for people to pay. Banks wanted to lend people money, but people were hesitant to borrow it. When stock prices fell, people did not have the money to cover their losses. The government stepped in and stopped stock purchases so that people could not buy more What did severe drought, stock speculation, and a banking crisis in the late 1920s lead to? the downfall of the Democratic Party overseas investment in the United States the Great Depression What was a common element of the Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover administrations? an increase in the size of the federal government a military buildup to prepare for another world war an emphasis on big business and corporate power strong support for the League of Nations less government regulation How did the 18th Amendment cause conflict in the United States? Some people did not want to give women the vote. Some people believed that the prohibition of alcohol was unconstitutional. Some people believed that Americans should not have to pay income taxes. Some people thought that a president should be able to serve more than two terms.
  • 1. They left for Cali 2. Not sure... 3. the Great Depression 4. An emphasis on big business and corporate power 5.Not sure...
  • If the courts make it hard to collect from someone on disability...would you lend money to someone who might not be able to pay it back and the courts would not force them to pay it back? Besides, you need a good credit rating. Perhaps if you had a good rating they might consider it. Most folks on welfare/disability have given up the likelihood of getting credit extended to them.

  • Many people had to move--there were many migrations to California due to the Oklahoma Dust Bowl and the loss of farms. Farms in other areas were also frequently foreclosed. Whole communities of homeless (called "hoboes") sprang up. The banks didn't have much money to lend. Famous bank robbers such as Bonnie & Clyde, Ma Barker, and John Dillinger often got away with next to nothing. They became folk heroes because they were seen as fighting against the corrupt bankers and the banking system. Pretty Boy Floyd was ruthless, but he often acted much like Robin Hood. He was known to beg for a meal and then for leaving a generous tip under the dinner plate. People held off on marriage, and the birth rates during the 1930s are much lower than during the 1920s. They didn't rise until the mid-1940s, after WW2, leading to the "baby boom." Fifteen years without sex is a long time by anyone's standards.
  • Poorly
  • Poorly x 2, but they still had clothes and butts
  • I'm taking a biology of cancer course and my lab group wants to do our big project on comparing cancer rates in different cities in the US. I think this is kind of ridiculous, especially since I haven't been able to find ANYTHING on my city (Miami) despite much Googling. Are these kinds of statistics even available in a form that would lend itself to objective comparisons? If so, where? If not, got any better ideas? I have a few myself but thus far none of them have sufficiently catered to my lab group's need to blather on and on about how they grew up in California and their moms had breast cancer...
  • In GA, statistics are sorted by county level at the smallest. You can find this information usually on your states "health department" site. Actually I just googled it and here is your site: http://fcds.med.miami.edu/Blessings
  • If you are not satisfied with above answer and want to do some other typeof new study to pick up the secrets of cancer disease you or even your male classmates can write e mails to me .But for submitting to your college it is better if you follow another answerers route
  • According to some measures that count discouraged workers, the unemployment rate now is 16.5%. http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2009/07/0...http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.t...Which is comparable to the unemployment rate during some periods of the Great Depression. But there are a lot more social programs from the government now than there were during the Great Depression. And that's why it doesn't yet feel like a Depression. Perhaps when many investors balk at lending any more money to the US government. Then the US government won't have any choice but to cut back on its spending. And then everyone will feel the full impact of the ongoing Depression.
  • Things could get really hairy. I hope they don't. But looking at the wisdom of the politicians in power i think it is inevitable. When no one shows up for the Treasury auction like Alvie eluded to be on the look out for the four horsemen. I have a question for you when and where was the last time you saw a Help Wanted sign? I think it has been almost a year for me.
  • The only way to get out of this economic mess is to have people somehow realize that you have to look to yourself for your help AND NOT THE GOVERNMENT. Everybody thinks there is a free lunch. As if no one has to pay for anything. People make products and provide services through their work either by themselves or through an employer OTHER THAN THE GOVERNMENT. THE GOVERNMENT PRODUCES NOTHING, IT JUST REDISTRIBUTES OUR EARNED MONEY.
  • Obama has got us on the fast route to a depression
  • 5. How did many plains farmers respond to the challenges they faced during Dust Bowl conditions? (Points: 1) They left for California in hopes of starting a new life. They began using more productive farming techniques. They marched on Washington in hopes of federal assistance. They formed cooperatives to share equipment. 6. What was one effect of the Great Depression on the lives of ordinary Americans? (Points: 1) Thousands of people lived in makeshift shantytowns. America experienced increases in marriage and birth rates, as fewer women had jobs. Fewer people bought televisions. More people applied for food stamps and welfare. 7. What did Herbert Hoover believe was the job of the government? (Points: 1) to give people direct aid during the crises to regulate business to interfere as little as possible to strictly oversee the banking industry strictly 8. What effect did Herbert Hoover's philosophy of government have on the federal response to the economic crisis? (Points: 1) His belief in government oversight resulted in vast new regulatory legislation. His belief in small government led him to veto all legislative attempts to address the situation. His belief that the federal government could not give direct aid to individuals left millions without help. His belief in limited government kept him from seeking any action. 9. Which was not a response taken during the Hoover administration in an attempt to turn the economy around? (Points: 1) Reconstruction Finance Corporation to lend money directly to banks Relief and Reconstruction Act to create jobs through public works projects Revenue Act to increase taxes Family Assistance Act to provide direct monetary aid to families 10. What is one reason government intervention proved necessary during the Great Depression? (Points: 1) European markets were booming and the United States needed to keep up. Bank failures and credit problems meant spiraling unemployment, home losses, and business failures. Voters demanded intervention. Businesses wanted more government regulation.

  • As a product manager with 6 years of experience in software and within a particular industry (broadcasting), what is the market rate for working in Manhattan? Currently I have a verbal offer (no details) for a job in NYC. Also, I'm moving from California. Both New York and relocating for a job are new territory for me. What is customary for relocating? Do I ask for money upfront or a place to stay? I can't afford to just move before getting paid at all. I've looked at salary.com and a couple of other sites. But the numbers vary wildly. Also, they only have "Web Product Manager" in the list, which might not be the same. If you have first-hand knowledge of the market and can lend some insight, I would be very grateful. Thank you.
  • Most companies will not pay for you to relocate, and it shouldn't be expected. They might help you find a place to stay but they won't pay for it. I would expect to get paid about $60,000 maybe if you are lucky.
  • It is not the government that has money power over the people, albeit they do have marginal authority, nevertheless, it is the money makers who control the shots, control your life and control our government. Once people know that and how easy it is to understand it, is when the whole house of cards that these very powerful people have, will come tumbling down. They depend on the people not knowing. ============= Look at the back of a dollar bill It says Federal Reserve System How many of you know that system is privately owned? How many of you know that the Federal Reserve System is controlled by a few banks and a handful of very rich people? How many of you know that the chairman of the Federal Reserve System is probably the most powerful man on the planet? The Federal Reserve System controls our money supply Prints our money Controls our Interest rates encourages you to be in debt lends money to our government while you the tax payer are paying interest on that debt. That our money is not backed by anything tangible, such as gold or silver, but only backed with a promise. In short, they control just about every aspect of your life, your money, your credit cards, your mortgage, your car loan, student loans, your retirment, etc. Including having their hands in getting us involved in money making wars. The smartest thing I ever did was chose to live debt free about 20 years ago. It is amazing how much of our money is eaten up by the Federal Reserve System, and how much more disposable income I had because I made the right choice. And more information about the federal reserve system: http://www.apfn.org/apfn/reserve.htmAnd this audio from Congressman Ron Paul http://www.apfn.net/pogo/M001I0604251938...And video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji_G0MqAq...Other prespectives http://www.tysknews.com/Depts/Taxes/fed_banking_fraud.htm http://www.truthusa.org/articles/fed/fedtruth2004.htm For more information about this and other important issues, download this: TVU Player http://pages.tvunetworks.com/downloads/player.html Then I would tune into: Channel 68078 Exposing 9/11, police state and tyranny Documentaries about 911 and other social issues over and over again. ====================== "Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who writes the laws." Mayer Amschel Rothschild "Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce...." President Taft ===================== "If there were no debts in our money system, there wouldn't be any money" Marriner S.Eccles Chairman and Governor of the Federal Reserve Board In another words, our monetary system is a debt system and only a debt system with no real money, only a promise. If all our debt both public and private were paid off, there would be no money at all. Thus the money makers want you and our government to be in debt. Think about it ==================== "This is a staggering thought. We are completely dependent on the Commercial Banks Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in cirulation, cash or credit. If the Banks create ample synthetic money, we are prosperous; if not we starve. We are, absolutely, without a permanent money system. When one gets a complete grasp of the picture, the tragic absurdity of our hopeless position is almost incredible, but there it is" Robert H Hemphill Credit Manager Federal Reserve Bank Atlanta, Georgia ===================== Perpetual Debt Peace Jim ===================== .
  • The Government does not print the money! The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 took that right away from Congress, thereby breaking the law of the Constitution that states, "Only Congress has the right to create the national currency for payment of debt, both public and private". The Fed prints their counterfeit bank notes and loans them to our government at high interest rates, which Congress is supposed to have the sole rights to set also, and we the people get left holding the bag. The Fed also collects our income taxes which is also illegal.
  • Printing excessive amounts of dollars is a hidden tax on every Citizen, rich or poor. Money is a commodity, and like all other commodities it's value is dependent on "supply and demand" Supply up = demand down = each dollar has less purchasing power. JIM IS COMPLETELY CORRECT!!!
  • The money does not belong to the Government. It's IOU's printed by the "Federal" Reserve.
  • the middle class has already been shrinking. Taxes are killing us! BTW, did you hear that CA is out of money on Feb 1st. They are possibly sending out IOUs instead of tax refunds. Hell, that's OUR MONEY!
  • yes as Max Keiser put it...we're going to see the age of neo-feudalism
  • Obama says `worst may be behind us' on recession http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090808/ap_o...Cash for Clunkers - We took working cars, real property, and destroyed them. Whats wrong with a clunker? Dont you own the car? You dont have any debt. Now you have new debt....to buy a foreign car. Why would you spend billions to destroy property? Fail. The Dollar - The dollar is hitting new lows. The foreign markets are strong. The Asian markets are booming. The US stock market gain is slowly rising and the dollar is loosing value and increased taxes are eliminating any marginal gains. DEBT - Trillions of extra debt. 1% GDP loss. We're trading trillions of dollars for short term gain....over long term fixes. Sooner or later intrest rates are going to SKYROCKET. 1 in 10 in California are behind on their payments. Job Losses - We are loosing massive amounts of jobs. Government is taking all the cash and prevent business lending for employment. Unemployment has passed the 8% mark...Obama predicted...and its at 9.6% and still growing.
  • I don't believe that the worst is behind us.
  • Well, he wants to fix the problems that America has, but most of what he's doing is moving us in the opposite direction...if this continues, we're going to be in big trouble.
  • If I was a betting man, I'd say yes he is wrong. When so many of his programs have been failures, or just plain old pork, I'd have to bet the odds and go with wrong.
  • uhhh, yea, only the media hasn't figured that out yet. Educated adults figured it out about 3 months ago.
  • I agree with you, but some nazi will flag you to the white house im sure.
  • Of course not. Bush was wrong.
  • Well..........DUH!!!!!

  • Has anyone noticed prices keep going up everyday ? Not just for gasoline but for basic necessities like fruits, vegetables, bread, milk, movie tickets, clothing, etc, etc, etc. Even food prices in restaurants continue to go up all the time. In Southern California many businesses continue to shut down, they have less customers everyday. Yet, their only constant is to raise prices ! I think way too many business are taking advantage of the economy problems and once they raise prices they never reduce them in the future. We are being ripped off !
  • The supply of money is being radically increased with all the huge bailouts. The natural order of events, since money is becoming less scarce is for prices to go up. It really has more to do with supply and demand. The economy is being saturated with money. If the FED continues to print more money and put it into our fractional reserve system, and if it becomes to saturated, then we could go into hyper inflation, where a hamburger costs $100. You may end up making $200,000 a year, but so will everyone else, so you really gain nothing except we can no longer compete in the global economy because the whole house of cards that has been created by our money system has come tumbliing down and the world has said, phuk the dollar standard, we're going over to the Yuan, or Euro, or whatever currency is stable. So who makes our money? Well, it ain't the federal government Then who is it? As close as the money in your pocket. Look at the back of a dollar bill It says Federal Reserve System How many of you know that system is privately owned? How many of you know that the Federal Reserve System is controlled by a few banks and a handful of very rich people? How many of you know that the chairman of the Federal Reserve System is probably the most powerful man on the planet? The Federal Reserve System controls our money supply Prints our money Controls our Interest rates encourages you to be in debt lends money to our government while you the tax payer are paying interest on that debt. That our money is not backed by anything tangible, such as gold or silver, but only backed with a promise. In short, they control just about every aspect of your life, your money, your credit cards, your mortgage, your car loan, student loans, your retirment, etc. Including having their hands in getting us involved in money making wars. The smartest thing I ever did was chose to live debt free about 20 years ago. It is amazing how much of our money is eaten up by the Federal Reserve System, and how much more disposable income I had because I made the right choice. And more information about the federal reserve system: http://www.apfn.org/apfn/reserve.htmAnd this audio from Congressman Ron Paul http://www.apfn.net/pogo/M001I0604251938...And video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji_G0MqAq...Other prespectives http://www.tysknews.com/Depts/Taxes/fed_banking_fraud.htm http://www.truthusa.org/articles/fed/fedtruth2004.htm For more information about this and other important issues, download this: TVU Player http://pages.tvunetworks.com/downloads/player.html Then I would tune into: Channel 68078 Exposing 9/11, police state and tyranny Documentaries about 911 and other social issues over and over again. ====================== "Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who writes the laws."

President Taft ===================== "If there were no debts in our money system, there wouldn't be any money" Marriner S.Eccles Chairman and Governor of the Federal Reserve Board In another words, our monetary system is a debt system and only a debt system with no real money, only a promise. If all our debt both public and private were paid off, there would be no money at all. Thus the money makers want you and our government to be in debt. Think about it ==================== "This is a staggering thought. We are completely dependent on the Commercial Banks Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in cirulation, cash or credit. If the Banks create ample synthetic money, we are prosperous; if not we starve. We are, absolutely, without a permanent money system.

  • The hike in petrol price was necessitated because of increase in prices of crude oil in the international market, Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said. "The price of crude oil in the international market has touched $90 a barrel. Petrol prices have been deregulated already. So the hike in price was in parity with international prices," Mukherjee said. While consumers are undoubtedly unhappy and the country's opposition political parties have begun to exploit this unhappiness, the Union government had no option but to hike petrol prices. Analysts say that there is no convincing case for subsidising petrol, even if there can still be some case for subsidising diesel and kerosene. These are all old arguments that have been gone through for over a decade now. It was the so-called 'R group', headed by economist Vijay Kelkar, a former petroleum secretary, that first laid out the road map for deregulation of petrol and petroleum product prices over a decade ago, said a Business Standard report some days ago. The argument is based on the simple principle that an import-dependent nation like India cannot afford to encourage excessive consumption of energy based on unrealistically low prices. =========================== Butter Flutter

  • Hi, I'm a guy from the UK. Recently, I have been looking into crime on the internet. Nothing major or empirical, just googling different things and trying to find out some things about North America. I started looking at serial killers such as Dennis Rader and Ted Bundy. Whilst I recognise that this scum is vile, I find the cases both fascinating and distressing. This progressed to looking at the death penalty, and now I'm looking at which areas of the United States are the most dangerous. That's why I'm here. I'd like some answers from Americans on what it's like over there (I've never been), and how safe your neighbourhood appears to be. Most of these serial killers are devoid of emotion and perfectly capable of seeming like a normal, friendly person, so how wary are you of walking the streets? I hope that if you are somebody who is relatively complacent about your safety over there this question might make you more aware and prepared. I'm not trying to frighten people, just make them aware of the problems in the world. From my readings, the areas which are statistically notorious for murder (not necessarily by serial killers), are New Orleans, Detroit, Toronto in Canada and Seattle. As for as serial killers go, the Pacific Northwest region (which I wasn't familiar with but apparently includes the likes of California, Oregon and Washington) is a hive for serial killers, with reasons cited as the massive forestry which is easily accessible for dumping bodies. The topography of the area lends itself to killing. Just to reiterate, I am from Glasgow in Scotland in the UK, there's quite a lot of lunatics here but it tends to be delinquents with knives or drunk guys outside of nightclubs who start things, rather than actually premeditated murderers. As you may know guns are not legal here, and I have never seen anybody carrying a gun. I'm just curious about what it's like over there, so feel free to answer.
  • John - I'm not ignorant mate lol. If you read what I say I know that we have many problems over here. The UK has the worst crime rate in Europe - Scotland is probably as bad in places as other nations are. We have had our fair share of murderers (Hindley and Brady, the Wests), but I am just going by what the experts say. I'm not ignorant at all - there's no need to be so defensive. You're acting as if I don't recognise the problems in the rest of the world, and believe me I do. I'm sorry if I caused offence.
  • I have 4 guns in my house, someone breaks in, that's the last thing they'll do so help me God! So I'm not afraid of scum like them
  • You pose an interesting question. Personally, I don't worry much about serial killers, as I don't appear as a person easily killed(six foot, 113Kg) but I think that the American mentality( I wouldn't know about Canada) is that 'It could never happen to me'. Its not a thing we think about often. Most people feel that they are completely safe with at least two houses on every block packed with guns and a police officer in every neighborhood protecting them. It is not until something happens, like the man sniping people from the trunk of his car a few years ago, that people begin to worry, buy weapons, and stay indoors. Also, America should seem more dangerous due to the larger number of serial killing instances every year, but statistically speaking, we should, since the size of Texas alone dwarfs Eastern Europe. We also have our share of delinquents in nightclubs. In short, most Americans do not think much about serial killers. The only American tradition I can think of that relates to them is checking their children's Halloween candy for poison. Overall, we americans are more preoccupied with sex crimes, as we see those on the news daily.
  • I can't speak on behalf of the USA nor all of Canada, but not all of North America is seething with serial killers. Smaller 'big cities' in Canada are actually 'Murder Capitals' or 'Violent Crime Capitals' such as Regina and Saskatoon (in Saskatchewan) and Thunder Bay (Ontario). As for the firearms serial killers....HA..'only one'!!!???!!! -DC Snipers or Beltway Snipers -Son of Sam (David Berkowitz) -Andrew Cunanan (killed Versace and others) -Christopher Peterson -Heriberto Seda (Zodiac Copycat) -Randy Woodfield (I-5 Bandit) -Aileen Wuornos (yes, a female serial killer) Plus, spree killings (school shootings like Columbine, Charles Whitman at University of Texas -Austin...clocktower shootings), tally up victims via firearms. Yes, more liked the up-close-and-personal of knives or strangulation, several enjoyed poisonings, and some used various or unmentioned styles, but firearms were not used by just one.
  • We could look at the pro's and con's of our individual countries and see who has what that is more dangerous. We have murders and other serious crimes...yes...but so do other countries...even the UK. One of your countries more notorious cases ... "Jack the Ripper," a serial killer! There are still communities where you can leave your doors open yet bigger cities where trusting individuals are victimized. As a young child, I had the opportunity to live in other countries to include Europe, Japan, and Korea. There are so many wonderful places yet each has issues unique onto themselves. However, as "Dorothy," in the movie "Wizard of Oz," stated, "there is no place like home!"
  • My response is North American is not the only continent with Serial Killers. And I feel as safe in my town as you probably feel in your town. Some of the major cities do have problems but it would be relative to their population. Bigger populations naturally have a larger rate of crime. I think you are making a "hasty generalization" about life in North America.
  • It may interest or worry you to know serial killers function in every society on the planet ... many go undetected for years. And I'm am only aware of one serial killer who ever used a firearm. Most used other methods to dispatch the victim of choice. It's as safe here as there ... I'm sure you have a spot or two you won't go to after dark on a Saturday nite .. we have those too. Ignorance is bliss .... Hope you stay happy !
  • I live in one of the biggest cities in the US and what is known to be one of the most dangerous places in the US too. I live in a very safe place, eve leave my door unlocked during the day never had a problem. Just like how I am in ANY CITY in the world when you out in the street you take precautions and be smart. America is not that dangerous, it is a very nice place to live and I would not want to live anywhere else.
  • This ex-roommate of mine (jerk) owes me $650 from borrowing money, utilities, etc. and it seems like he refuses to pay. It's not that he can't pay, he just refuses. It's been over a year, but I haven't had more time to deal with this up until now. I'm going to give him one more chance to pay me within 30 days, and then take legal action. My question is, if I sue and win here in California (it is a slam dunk case, mind you), can I also collect court fees (about $150) and interest? I could have made 4% interest annually if I had this money sitting in my bank account with my other funds. Ridiculous?? Yes!
  • you can get costs and if the loan agreement called for interest you can get that interest. If the contract did not require payment of interest, then no pre-judgment interest will be ordered. Once judgment enters interest will accrue on the judgment at the statutory rate. BTW, in presenting your slam dunk case, one of the questions you will be asked is when the loan was due to be paid. If you had no payment date, then it is not yet overdue and you lose your case. Keep that in mind when making noises about suing someone.
  • Yes. See nolo.com for excellent do it yourself legal advice for renters, tenants, and small claims court all. Your local library and big box book store probably has all 3 if you just want to browse. Highly recommended you review them though. Keep in mind even if you get a judgment that might not necessarily make him see the light - you still have to collect.
  • Yes you can. But keep in mind you can only sue if you have a written statement from him saying that he'd pay you back. Without that statement you can never prove that the money you gave him wasn't a gift.
  • do it dont even give him the 30 days, he has had a year already. sue and tack on interest as well, as if it were a loan. figure in 10% as that seems fair.
  • Yep....go ahead and sue!
  • 6 years ago I decided to leave my boyfriend with all my credit cards. I came back to find a whole lot of debt. Given that the debt was not mine I constantly fought with him, about paying all this debt. I broke up with him and left things as they where with the credit card companies. I then met my husband and he started putting me in his credit cards. Yesterday I found out that I had been served with a summons of $5500.00 for a card that was never paid off. I know have 3 credit cards of my own with about $7000.00 of credit and all the other credit cards that my husband has included me in. I do not want to pay for all this debt, and I am considering filing for bankruptcy. 1. Will filing for bankruptcy ruing my husbands credit? If so, can he just take me out of all his credit cards before I file for bankruptcy so that he does not get affected? 2. How much will it cost me to file for bankruptcy?
  • You may file without your spouse. The effect on your spouse and any debts you have jointly will vary depending on the marital property laws in your state. Joint property If you and your spouse own property together, that property may be included in the bankruptcy estate and be potentially available to pay creditors. In community property jurisdictions such as California, both halves of the community property comes into the estate: all of the community property is available to pay community creditors and any other creditorsof the spouse who has filed. So the filing of one spouse could have significant impact on the other Generally, marriage alone doesn't make both spouses personally liable for a debt. Liability on contracts such as home loans and credit cards arises by agreement between the creditor and the debtor. Only persons who signed the loan or credit application are liable for the debt. The bankruptcy of one spouse will have some effect on the credit worthiness of the non filing spouse if they apply jointly in the future for a loan. The loan grantor will consider the credit rating of both applicants in making a lending decision As to how much it would cost, depends upon the chapter you file (7 or 13) and the size of the estate (and your lawyers ego).

  • If your husband is not part of the loan that you owed, then his credit score will not be ruined. Removing your name from the joint accounts would be prudent – that is nice thought. As you know, bankruptcy stays in your credit history for 7 years and you will not be eligible for any loans. There are some ways to remove bankruptcy, charge offs, evictions from credit history under some circumstances. Filing bankruptcy will cost around $1000 - $2000. There are ways to do it yourself also... Here’s a link with some basics about FICO scores and bankruptcy: http://www.top-rated-credit-card.com/fico-scores-fair-isaac/ Good luck…

  • If you are the only holder on the debt, your credit will be the one ruined. It takes about 10 years to rebuild credit ....in the mean time if you try to purchase anything, you will either be denied or have to pay a very high interest rate. If you are joint on the loans ...I'm not sure if you can file (especially if he is the primary holder) ....check with your lawyer It usually costs about $1500 to file .....but that depends on your state and the attorney you hire .....

  • Hi there, The title states it all; I am planning to buy some land in a U.S. state, preferably...California, Florida, Texas or Virginia; basically the coastal states. I plan to buy land in one or more of these states and develop that land to establish a company, and I have several questions on the process: 1. Since each state has its own government.... who do I buy the land in a state from? Do I get it from the state's government or the U.S. federal government in D.C.? For example if I buy land in California do I get permission and all the stuff I need from the state's government in Sacramento or do I get permission from the federal government? I don't really know how government systems work in the nation and I'd be glad if someone could point out the stuff I should know. 2. Is it possible to buy land in any U.S. state as a normal citizen? Do you need to have a ton of money to get land in a U.S. state? I have a lot more things I would like to know but I'll leave it to these questions for now. Thanks.
  • When purchasing land in the United States you would probably be buying from a private individual or an investment company that would own the land. There is public land that might be owned by a city, county, state or the federal governments. There are several methods to buy land. There are properties that are listed by your local real estate agents. Then there are land auctions. Contact a local real estate agent that specialize in selling land. This is extremely important. You do not want a real; estate agent that specialize in selling residential property. In order for you to build anything on the property you would need to deal with each state in which you buy the property as far a the zoning, what you would be allowed to build on the property. Instead of an attorney you would best be served by obtaining the services of a construction company that would assist you in the permits and other things you would need to know in order to what you would want on the property. The zoning has already been assigned the property. You would know the zoning prior to you purchasing the property. This is a must if you currently know what you would want to to build on the property. It would not make sense to purchase a property that is zoned R-2 if you would plan to build a commercial building on the property. Anyone might purchase any property for sale in the United States. You would need to have cash or be able to qualify and be approved for a land loan. Most land lenders would lend approximately 50% of the appraised value of the property. The other 50% have to come from your pockets. Most land lenders would not want to see another lender on the purchase. Some states use an escrow as closing agents while some might use an attorney as the closing agent. The main thing about buying real estate is the cost you agreed to pay, the terms of the mortgage loan as well as the cost for you to obtain the mortgage loan. Most real estate transactions use forms that are unique to certain regions of the country and approved by the state in which the real estate is sold. Unless you are doing something outside the normal real estate process you would not need the services of an attorney. They are really over rated. I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck. "FIGHT ON"
  • You buy the land from whoever owns it. Usually the state is not selling any land they own. Federal government does not usually sell any land they own. You will be buying from a company or individual. You should buy it subject to you getting all the proper permissions and zoning that you need. More that half of your dealings will be wil local governments. You would be very foolish not to use a lawyer to help you and line this all out for you even if you grew up here and knew most of these answers already. If you are buying for cash- then you will need that much cash. If you are borrowing then you will need to be able to borrow that much. You do not have to be a citizen to own land in the US.
  • Many of the same Republicans who fought hammer-and-tong to keep the George W. Bush-era income tax cuts from expiring on schedule are now saying a different "temporary" tax cut should end as planned. By their own definition, that amounts to a tax increase. The tax break extension they oppose is sought by President Barack Obama. Unlike proposed changes in the income tax, this policy helps the 46 percent of all Americans who owe no federal income taxes but who pay a "payroll tax" on practically every dime they earn. There are other differences as well, and Republicans say their stand is consistent with their goal of long-term tax policies that will spur employment and lend greater certainty to the economy. "It's always a net positive to let taxpayers keep more of what they earn," says Rep. Jeb Hensarling, "but not all tax relief is created equal for the purposes of helping to get the economy moving again." The Texas lawmaker is on the House GOP leadership team. The debate is likely to boil up in coming weeks as a special bipartisan committee seeks big deficit reductions and weighs which tax cuts are sacrosanct. At issue is a tax that the vast majority of workers pay, but many don't recognize because they don't read, or don't understand their pay stubs. Workers normally pay 6.2 percent of their wages toward a tax designated for Social Security. Their employer pays an equal amount, for a total of 12.4 percent per worker. As part of a bipartisan spending deal last December, Congress approved Obama's request to reduce the workers' share to 4.2 percent for one year; employers' rate did not change. Obama wants Congress to extend the reduction for an additional year. If not, the rate will return to 6.2 percent on Jan. 1. Apparently only for the wealthy.
  • Republicans have played this trick before. They pass a 'temporary' tax cut because the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) analyzes proposed tax cuts and says how much they'll cost over the next few years, and of course a temporary cut is cheaper. But then when the tax cut expires they push to renew it indefinitely, and say that anyone who doesn't support that is in favor of RAISING taxes. We had the same thing here in California a few years ago with car registrations. A Republican governor gave us a relatively small break on registration renewal fees for five years. At the end of five years, they accused Democrats in the state legislature for raising reg. fees only because they let the cuts expire. BTW our new Republican governor didn't lift a finger. I was in line behind a lady at the registration desk at AAA and she was just bitching and whining that she had to pay $15 or $20 more to renew her registration. I tried to explain to her that it was the REPUBLICANS who raised registration fees in the first place, to make the DMV self-sustaining, so it wouldn't suck up taxes. She didn't even want to hear it, she just wanted to be mad. But when it comes to FICA contributions, the Republican tax strategy is clear. They don't want to lower -everyone's- taxes, just the rich. They oppose cuts in FICA because it's a very regressive tax. They want to cut PROgressive taxes, like Income Tax, capital gains, inheritance, etc.etc. so as to shift the burden of taxation from the rich to the middle class. Ask any Republican you know who makes less than $250,000/yr (which is most of them) who it was who cut -their- taxes and who raised -their- taxes, and I bet they wouldn't know it was Clinton and Obama who cut -their- taxes.
  • I call it the tip of a tax ruin. human beings shouldn't get used to and assume something that became into temporary interior the 1st place. they might desire to have taken it for what it became into and enjoyed it mutually because it lasted. I see no project with rotating who gets the ruin.

  • My daughter just graduated from college and is making about $50k a year. She has about $5k saved up and would like to buy a condo ASAP. Her credit scores are low now since she just started woking full-time in late June. What is the earliest time she will be able to get a loan to buy a condo? Does she have to wait for one year before she can get a loan? Which institutions would you suggest that she can go for a mortgage loan with good rate? What should she do to increase her chance of buying a condo ASAP? Where can she get more info about the questions above? Do you think that the condo price will continue to rise in the Puget Sound area? Thanks for any advice that you can give!
  • Hello SeekingAdvice, I'll try to break this down for you a little. Q. What is the earliest time she will be able to get a loan to buy a condo? Does she have to wait for one year before she can get a loan? A. No she does not have to wait one year, but again it depends on her actual credit score. Also, if she entered into the job market for which she went to school for, some lenders can use that in conjunction with her actual job length to show a longer period of time. Q. What is the earliest time she will be able to get a loan to buy a condo? Does she have to wait for one year before she can get a loan? A. I would suggest she go to AT LEAST three mortgage brokers who are licensed in the state of Washington and make sure she compares two very specific documents they are required by law to give to her. One of those is the GFE (Good Faith Estimate), and the other is the TIL Disclosure (Truth in Lending ). With these two documents she can truly compare apples-to-apples and make sure she is getting the best deal. Q.What should she do to increase her chance of buying a condo ASAP? A. Find the best Broker out of the three that she feels like they are truly helping to educate her. Q.Where can she get more info about the questions above? A. The web has a lot of information, you can also try our website at: www.SuperLowRates.info. The site has alot of information about the mortgage process and credit related answers. Q. Do you think that the condo price will continue to rise in the Puget Sound area? A. Yes. The pacific northwest is on the bottom of the real estate curve as compared to other geographical locations, IE: California, Nevada, etc. Good Luck, ~Trey PS. Please tell her to make sure to shop around. At least three different Brokers. Also, one of the things a Broker may say to keep her from shopping is to say her credit score will drastically drop if everyone pulls her credit. If they say that, tell her to look somewhere else for her loan.
  • Soccer is a much faster growing sport, you can see it everywhere you go, there are kids playing it in leagues, schools, everywhere.. Professional soccer is growing at a good rate in the United States. Our national league, Major League Soccer, sees growth in attendance every year and the majority of games are televised nationally on ESPN, Fox Soccer Channel, local channels, Spanish Channels, you name it. Not to mention the National US Soccer team which is rapidly growing, is playing games around the year across the country in football stadiums and are selling out. Just this past month the US vs Mexico game sold out in just 9 MINUTES after tickets went on sale (that's 23776 seats!) All US games are now nationally televised on ESPN, Spanish Channels, and even Internationally to other countries! MLS teams are now constructing stadiums for soccer use only since they have the fan base and support to fill them up. Home Depot Center (California), Columbus Crew Stadium (Ohio), and RFK Stadium which was built for soccer use only but lent it to the Nationals when they first started (Washington DC) plus many more. Soccer is on a rise in the U.S. I am a referee in NC and my local league has so many teams that we have more than 100 referee's to officiate every week. Lacrosse doesn't stand a chance, I'm happy to see this country start catching up with the rest of the world on the World's most popular sport.. --------------------------------------... Flava t states that soccer doesn't come close to lacrosse on the fastest growing, haha, wow.. I think everyone would laugh at this statement.. I'd like to see the source of his statistics because it is VERY much contrary to the census' conducted by USSF.. first off, where I live, Lacrosse is unheard of, there are no leagues in any schools, you may be lucky to find a private league featuring it.. I can GUARANTEE you that if you take a soccer ball to ANY part of this country and show it to any child, teen, and adult, they will know what it signifies.. as for Lacrosse, you will get many clueless americans as to how you play the game. It's that simple, the beauty of soccer is the fact that all you need to play it is a ball and open space.. Also, if the statement that more and more people play Lacrosse as they get old unlike soccer were true then I'd be watching pro Lacrosse on ESPN all the time and there would be pro leagues throughout the country.. and if half of the children playing soccer left soccer after the age of 12 than our country wouldn't be producing nationally and internationally soccer stars recognized throughout the world... It's just pointless comparing soccer's growth to Lacrosse, I can understand if you like it better than soccer, that's great I have nothing against it, its just that you can't provide misleading evidences biased by your opinions, you must state the facts.. soccer is my favorite sport, but that doesnt mean I am going to try to compare its growth with baseball or american football in this country because that's just ridiculous.. quite frankly that is what Flava t is doing with Lacrosse.. there is just no comparison and I will provide you the links to all the sources that show you the STATISTICAL EVIDENCE that rebut's Flava t's out of proportion statistics.. enjoy haha
  • Alex G, infact, soccer doesn't come close to lacrosse on the fastest growing. Soccer is played by 86% of children 8 and younger in the US, and by the time they are 12, it is left at 42 percent, but as lacrosse grows, more and more play as they get older.
  • Soccer is further along as more people play soccer in the US than lacrosse, but lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the country. However, I think lacrosse is more likely to strike it big in the long run because it's more exciting than soccer because there is a lot more scoring and there is hitting as well.
  • I think soccer, because it is the most played sport in the world, and lacrosse???? What is lacrosse??? Jk, Lacrosse is not very popular sport.
  • If Soccer is a "foreign sport" to most Americans who don't even know jack about the sport like the guy who said Soccer was boring in this question then, what the hell is Hockey? Is it an "American Sport" as well? Go figure. Soccer won't be as popular as those "other sports" but at least it has some fan base here in the U.S.

  • In Europe World War 2 raged for almost 4 years before America along with other allied invaded Normandy. Germany lost 90% of it's military forces on the eastern Front Fighting the Russians. 90% of all world war 2 casualties in Europe were recorded in eastern Europe both civilian and military. In Asia the Japanese had military forces in China, Korea and other Asian nations losing more soldiers fighting other Asian forces then actually fighting American forces. The British and Australia also helped America in the pacific. Actually at the end of the war Russia invaded China and destroyed a million man Japanese Army and basically took most of China, Half of Korea and some of the Northern Japanese Islands in about 1 month. Some say America used the Nuclear Weapons on Japan because the Russians were massing for a Japanese Invasion and would have taken Japan before America could invade therefore it was a warning to the Russian Forces. Also the American Nuclear bomb was invented by European Scientists who defected to the USA/UK during the war. In Germany scientists actually detonated several small nuclear weapons(Rugen) against the Russians in the waning days of the war but did not have enough uranium to mass produce more bombs if they had another 6 or 10 months things could have been different. Germany also had an operational nuclear reactor during the war in Berlin which the Soviets took back to Russia after the war. Studying the map of casualties in Asia most occurred in China. Japan was over stretched being only the size of California and fighting Russia, China and the USA. Same Goes with Germany fighting the British Empire, The French Empire, Russia and America yet coming within a few months of victory. What in the German or Japanese System enabled them to have so much success considering the odds against them?
  • You have asked this before and you say that the Communists defeated the Nazis but your historical facts have been proven false. At any rate, the Soviet Union was not so powerful that all of the Communists in the world ever wanted to live there. Actually, the Soviet Union was, is, and maybe always will be a pit. The US was in Europe long before Normandy. The US entered the war in North Africa against the Germans in 1942 and then went on to Italy in September 1943. We were helping Britain with Lend-Lease long before North Africa. I would say that the US was involved since September 1, 1939. As for the Soviet Union, we supplied them with almost everything. They ate our spam, drove our trucks, slept in our blankets, etc. Operation Barbarossa, Hitler's invasion of the Soviet Union, began on June 22, 1941, so we were involved long before the Soviets, who had a treaty with the Germans and helped the Germans divide up Poland. Also, the Soviets conducted military exercises illegally with the Germans in the 1930s. As for your point about the Germans losing in the east, that campaign was lost from the beginning and it became bogged down when Hitler leashed his army at Smolensk for a month instead of driving on to Moscow right away. The Communist Russians took Poland in the summer of 1944 and D-Day was June 6, 1944, so I disagree with your statement that the Communists were near Berlin when the US decided to invade Europe. The Communists were in Poland after D-Day and we were in Italy, Europe, since September 1943. It is too bad that the Communists got so much of Germany but we were attacked at the Battle of the Bulge around Christmas 1944 and had to wait for good weather so that air power could defeat the German offensive. By then we had liberated almost all of Europe and were on the border of Germany, waiting to cross the Rhine. If Hitler had invaded Russia and never attacked Western Europe, then no one would have cared what he did. By the way, the Russian Communists never even declared war on Japan until the last days of World War II so that we defeated Japan without any help from them. And in China, once Japan was defeated, the Chinese turned on the USA immediately and the Nationalists fled to Formosa while the Chinese would eventually send 300,000 men into Korea to push the USA back to the 38th parallel, where we are today. The Russians and the Chinese wanted to prevent the re-unification of Korea as it was well known that the North Koreans wanted to join the South in a free society, Korea having been under the brutal Japanese for at least half a century
  • Although the Americans did very little in terms of fighting, i must admit that they provided vital equipment. For the first 4 years of the war American public opinion was against entry into the conflict. Instead of aiding democracy, the USA actually bled Britain dry first - (the last western democracy with values of freedom fighting the Nazi's) forcing the British government to sell off all its American investments, dollars, gold, engine blueprints, naval bases and technology, to the U.S government in exchange for war materials. This enabled the U.S to greatly reduce Britain as an economic rival if it was to survive in the post war world. Not only that, but the British also had to pay for American plant expansion (building production factories) before the Americans would make the supplies for the British to buy from them. They also did this to the French up until they were invaded. Out of desperation the British also agreed to share its intelligence secrets, and methods in exchange for some semblance of help. Bleeding the British dry, (whilst also sustaining them with limited provisions to fight for freedom and democracy against Nazi Germany). It became apparent that Japan and Germany would next focus on the U.S as they joined forces with Italy also. Realising he would be isolated in a world without Britain and France and the other fallen European democracies the U.S president Roosevelt went against American public opinion and started Lease-Lending aid to the British (and China and Russia) to fight the Germans. Providing war materials on the condition they would be returned or losses paid for after the war. Then Japan attacked America at Pearl Harbour and they realised they could not just sit back and watch democracy die on its **** in comfort and safety.....they had to act. Just in the nick of time too! OH WAIT....the USSR had already beat Nazi Germany, and now Stalin had 6 million men, ready to continue through Germany and take the whole European continent. Damn commies! Better drop a nuclear weapon on an already devastated Japan to warn Stalin Europe had already been conquered....by good old US aid! Haha, but all is well that ends well eh?
  • Yeah, Germany and Japan had great success until they lost. It wasn't going all that well for the allies until the US entered the war, was it? And it doesn't really matter where the scientists defected from, the bomb was developed in the US with US governmental support. And Oppenheimer didn't defect from anywhere, did he? You seem to be trying to make some kind of point, but I can't quite tell what it is or why you're going on like this.
  • I do believe that when Field Marshall Alfred Jodl surrendered to the United States, the United Kingdom, France and the Soviet Union...
  • If the US not gotten involved Europe would have been fu*ked. BTW, who do you think was supplying Russia during their fight with Germany? One more thing. Given that the US lost nearly half a million men in a war that barely even touched our soil, when someone says that Europe didn't need us I'm inclined to simply tell that person to go fu*k themselves.
  • the people who win wars write the history. Did your schooling not teach you that
  • Walloftext: Without an alliance between the USA and Soviet Russia, the Nazis would very likely have won. Alone, neither would likely have defeated them.
  • Did you fail to see that most of the equipment used by the Russians was provided by the United States. You don't just win a war in the trench you need logistics.
  • They never meant to. The whole point was to TAKE OVER- become the AXIS. Now we see Israel was needed to complete the Final Solution. We know we are the new AXIS.
  • This was all a very long time ago. Winners write history and this is history. Try reading about geography.
  • Step 1 Check state laws before you decide to open a pawn shop. Every state has slightly different laws about pawn shop practices and procedures. Go to the National Pawnbrokers Association website for links to more information. Pawnbrokers require a state license and certain items, such as firearms, come under federal regulations. Step 2 Acquire sufficient capital to open your shop. Since a pawnshop lends money to people, it abides by strict laws like financial institutions. A beginning pawnbroker needs to show the state and customers who offer their collateral for loans that they have sufficient capital. Step 3 Open your pawn shop on friendly terms with the other stores and businesses on the street. Pawnshops have gotten a bad reputation over the years, but that's changing, as many pawnbrokers now open up shop in better neighborhoods and attract middle-class clientèle. Keep your storefront clean and clear of derelicts and loiterers. Step 4 Verify the identity of people pawning goods to guard against stolen items being passed off to your shop. In California, all pawned item have to be checked with the National Crime Information Computer (NCIC). Step 5 Utilize the Blue Book and other price guides to set rates for pawned items. Keep in mind that you'll receive a multitude of different items, so study up on the market value of musical instruments, coins, jewelry and electronic items like DVD players and iPods.

  • Do you think that the reason why a lot of developed sophisticated as well as ignorant rock throwing people hate the Jews on a global scale is because they control half the worlds money and with that comes great power and they envy the Jews for that and are led to think that the Jews are some how responsible for a lot of the horrible stuff that happens on this planet (not saying all of it )but some of it and only in the hands of a select few?
  • Thinking Jews are hated for just being in control of half the world's money is a very narrow view. It goes alot deeper than that. If the YA moderators think I'm disseminating hate from what I've read and what I see in the world today, So Be It!!!! But I've thought long and hard on why Jews are despised on a global scale. These are my conclusions. 1)Many people are convinced that the head of the Jewish Temple just prior to Jesus' crucifixion cut a deal with Harrod, (the Roman representative in charge of Jerusalem). Apparently Jesus saw the Jews lending money at exorbitant rates within the Temple walls and Jesus called them on it. The more wealthy Jews felt Jesus was dissing their scam and the rest is history....2) Later,,say,,800-900 years later Jews began emigrating to all parts of Europe where they started up the same business practices. And also would not assimilate to their host country's culture. Because of this, they were deported from 106 countries, sometimes numerous times. They were given many chances to change their cultural iniquities many times over the centuries but wouldn't. 3) And here we are now in America. This time they've taken a different tack. Not only is it the banks they want control over, but this time they snapped up the different type of media as well. Especially Hollywood. What a lot of people don't know is that they "legally" stole Thomas Edison's movie camera patents in Washington D.C. and went out west to California to slowly, ever so slowly wage their celluloid war on the Gentiles.And so here we are now. I watch the history channel alot. Any WW2 documentary that you see places every bit of blame on Adolf Hitler for the Holocaust. But they never mention about how the German Jews were messing up the banking to their own and only their own advantage. Or how the Jews were involved in the Versailles Treaty to end WW1. Jews will mostly hide their cultural hate behind platitudes designed to make you think they're the victim. I'd like to think that I'm developed and sophisticated, but in reality I just study the big picture why we are the way we are as human beings. If the moderators can't see that, then they are more closed minded than I thought. I have gotten angry, sarcastic and even divisive at times. And I have lost points for that too. But this should not be an instance where you shut down my opinion.
  • No...? It's because they're ******* Jewish.

  • California lawmaker blasts Obama as a 'professor' Rep. Dennis Cardoza (D-Atwater), who is retiring at the end of his term, has published a sort of goodbye note to his president, a blistering critique in which Cardoza blasts President Obama as an arrogant “professor” who has alienated himself from his fellow Democrats and the American public. Writing in the Washington newspaper the Hill, Cardoza called Obama an out-of-touch elitist, given to lectures but uninterested in the struggles of real people. He spoke of the early days of Obama’s presidency, when the White House, he charges, suffered from “idea disease.” “Every week, and sometimes almost every day, the administration rolled out a new program for the country,” Cardoza wrote. “This rampant ‘idea disease’ squandered the tremendous goodwill generated by the Obama campaign’s message of ‘hope,’ tainting the president’s personal appeal.” In the op-ed, Cardoza painted Obama as a lecturer who continually believed he was right and would admonish his staff and members of Congress about “what they could learn from him.” http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-...
  • Who says we can’t afford infrastructure? Bond holders are begging us to keep their money safe at close to zero percent interest rate. Or we can buy bonds ourselves as we did in WW II. Or while computer keyboards still work, the money can be printed just as the Fed does it now for European banks. With a 2.5 multiplier (see KeynesForum.com), $1T of annual infrastructure spending induces an additional $1.5T of annual consumer spending. That’s a total of $2.5T added annually to the GDP. Since the total tax burden for all levels of government is about 30% of GDP, $1T of annual infrastructure spending adds $0.75T to annual tax revenue, reducing the annual infrastructure deficit to $0.25T. Also, $1T of annual infrastructure spending would employ ten million jobless workers, each drawing the equivalent of $25,000 in annual relief benefits of all kinds. The $0.25T annual savings on relief benefits would reduce the infrastructure deficit to zero. Infrastructure spending could be revenue-neutral! But wait, there’s more! Because, on average, consumers’ savings amount to about 10% of their spending, consumers would bank about $0.15T annually. Since banks can lend over ten times their reserves, at least $1.5T of additional credit would be created annually. If business looked at an economy with ten million new workers and decided to invest 10% of the amount that government spends, the multiplier would effectively be increased by 10%. That would raise the annual tax revenue increase to $0.862T. Thus, spending $1T annually on infrastructure could be a net annual budget gain of $0.112T = $112B! But wait, there’s more! If $1T of infrastructure lasting over thirty years produces a 1% annual productivity gain in a $15T GDP economy, that’s worth $0.150T annually. Thus, the total annual budget gain produced by $1T of annual infrastructure spending could reach $0.262T = $262B! Deficit spending worked for Germany before WW II. Hitler took office in 1933 and ended Germany’s depression within two years by deficit spending on the autobahn, the Volkswagen, and television as well as on concentration camps and munitions factories. “Heil Hitler!” really meant “Thanks for the job!” FDR also took office in 1933. With the same amount of deficit spending as he spent during WW II, FDR could also have built, in the period 1934-1938, interstate highways and modern railroads, airports and seaports, levees and dams, schools and hospitals, as well as munitions factories and arsenals. And within the same budget, he could have paid 16,000,000 youth to learn trades, engineering, and science for four years at free schools and universities instead of paying them to go to war. What would have been the result? The Great Depression would have ended by 1935. By 1938, the ratio of national debt to GDP would have been the same as it was at the end of WW II (120%) with the same post-war boom. Consumers would have had as much savings, enough to buy cars and homes and turn old farms into new suburbs. We would have been better set for the war and many of our dead heroes would have survived and returned to a far richer nation. Only the blind stupidity of the deficit hawks kept much of that dream from being real. And despite high tax rates and annual budget deficits, post-war deficit spending on veterans’ education and housing, on the Marshall Plan, the Korean War, nuclear energy, the Interstate Highway System, NASA, Cold War rearmament, the Vietnam War, and proxy wars during 35 years produced such GDP growth that the debt ratio declined to 25% of its wartime peak. Deficit spending created our middle class. Then Reagan doubled the debt ratio with tax cuts that put infrastructure spending on a starvation diet. (He also ripped Carter’s solar panels off the White House roof and defunded an experimental, thorium-based, nuclear energy plant that could have given us safe energy independence and avoided Bush’s wars.) And these deficit hawks are still turning our dreams into a nightmare. See: http://www.KeynesForum.com

  • Typically a 2/1 buydown will cost 2.5 discount points to the borrower which can be paid in seller concessions (aka interested party contributions). I don't know what kind of LTV's you will most likely dealing with, but most 100% programs will limit seller concessions to 3% (there are some that offer 6%at 100% financing) A buydown works like this: If your base rate is 6% then The first years rate will be 4%, year two will be 5% then the rest of the amortization period will be at 6%. Hope this helps. I don't know what state you are in but some states are starting to count discount points towards their predatory lending laws, which makes it almost impossible to do a true buydown.
  • I'm not very hopeful. Particularily with the news we are getting. First lets briefly review how we got here. We watched a stupid movie called "The China Syndrome" about a nuclear disaster that defies physics and couldn't be made to happen on purpose much less by accident. And we had a irrational panic attack and quit building nuclear power plants. Then we let the Enviromental Wacko's use the power of government to stop stop us from drilling for our own oil in Alaska, Florida or California. And stop us from building power plants, oil refineries, and cement plants. We have tax laws and regulations that drive good jobs out of the country. And laws "fair practices in lending act" that force banks and mortgage companies to make bad loans. Then we fix that by devaluating our currency (cutting interest rates) and driving up the cost of everything we buy. The whole mess was created by meddling politicians who now tell us the only way to fix this is to increase the amount of meddling the government does. For example the price of gasoline is due to the combined effect of supply and demand and the devalued currency we are using to buy it. The solution is to raise taxes on the producers of gasoline. Which has exactly the opposite of the needed effect. I think we've reached a tipping point. Where the majority thinks that government needs to solve all their problems and more government tinkering with the economy is a good thing. If that is the case things are going to get a whole lot worse before they get better.
  • Sorry, I don't ever remember gas being $4.19 a gallon. Most of the old people I know think there is going to be another depression. Just think about the businesses that use gas. Trucking companies, taxis, ambulances, schools, police officers, commercial airlines, independent contractors, etc.. Now, think about the impact that is going to have on the prices of everything these businesses provide. What about the restaurants. They have all of their food delivered. How is that affecting them. I'll tell you, it is raising their prices. In my opinion, most people are not doing as much now since the price of gas went up. I would say that before too long we will see businesses closing because of high prices and slow business. The gas price is having such a ripple affect. Scary.
  • Unless a miracle happens we will soon see food and gas riots in the US cities, and the collapse of the US dollar followed by economic chaos as our economy drags the rest of the western nations and Japan down with it. We will live in a Road Warrior world!
  • I hope you're right but the housing market is getting the double whammy from high gas prices. Houses need to come down about 50%.
  • As long as people keep having people........................ At what point are you willing to pay $10 for an apple........... supply and demand baby................................. If one third of the world population were to just disappear, prices of goods would drop.................. Kiss he good old days good-bye.............. goggle "the new world order"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • its ****, nothing can be done and everyone knows it, its only going downhill
  • hope you're right.
  • Yes, in fact, it does. A lot. When the capital gains tax is high, "the rich" (which also includes the mutual funds that middle income people invest in, by the way, and the sale of homes at a profit that all of us engage in), people tend not to sell these assets - but rather hold on to them until the profit is enough to counterbalance the high taxes. This stagnates economic activity, and inhibits investment in the very companies that drive our economy, whether you like it or not, whether call it a "corporatist" economy or not. When the taxes are low, despite the "evil" you see in allowing people to keep the profits they gain as a result of taking the investment risk, the incentive provided by low taxes is for the investor to trade and to sell more frequently, and to base his decisions on investment only. So - if the capital gains tax is at 39% and investors do not sell because of this, the government gets zero money. If the capital gains tax is at 15%, more people will sell, meaning that the government will get 15% of a whole lot more. A great example of this is the recent surplus that the government of California just enjoyed. Everyone touted the policies of Jerry Brown, who advocated high taxes and an increase in the capital gains taxes. The problem here is that the increase in Capital Gains taxes had not taken place yet - but the surplus was driven by investors rushing to sell capital assets and incur the lower tax rate before they were raised. For those who did NOT sell, these investors intend to hold on to their assets for the long term. In a broader sense, the income the people gain is directly reinvested into the economy. Some will use it for current expenses and the purchase of large- and small-ticket items - dinners, clothing, cars, boats, vacations, appliances, renovations, houses - all of which DIRECTLY puts income into the people who provide, manufacture, or deliver these goods and services. Last year I planned to put new windows and carpets in my home - my windows are at least 50 years old (old double-hung weighted windows). Instead, because I had had to liquidate some savings in order to move into this home (new job, new state ...) I got hit with a big capital gains tax. Instead of employing a local contractor, buying double insulated replacement windows, buying carpet from a local rug company, paying an independent installer to put the rugs in my house, I wrote a check to the government. Then I watched as this government sent IRS workers to Las Vegas, while I bought shrink-wrap plastic to put over my windows to keep the draft down in the winter. I don't know what the contractors or the installers did - they didn't have the job I was going to give them - did they pick up a different one? Are they so busy that they're turning down work? I don't know - but I doubt it. THAT's what Capital Gains profits do -
  • Not all people who have capital gains are rich. You need to realize that before posting your class warfare rants.
  • Yes. But the businesses have to merit investment though. Wondering if you have any training of any kind.
  • Proofread your title question before you post. Here's my response in the same coherent style: Deblahay.
  • It eans that the economy is doing good if they are making a profit.
  • so you're saying we should tax our way to prosperity. This is why you NEVER get a promotion.
  • A common characterization is that Michael Myers is evil. John Carpenter has described the character as "almost a supernatural force - a force of nature. An evil force that's loose," a force that is "unkillable"... Professor Nicholas Rogers elaborates, "Myers is depicted as a mythic, elusive bogeyman, one of superhuman strength who cannot be killed by bullets, stab wounds, or fire." Carpenter's inspiration for the "evil" that Michael would embody came when he was in college. While on a class trip at a mental institution in Kentucky, Carpenter visited "the most serious, mentally ill patients". Among those patients was a young boy around twelve to thirteen years-old. The boy gave this "schizophrenic stare", "a real evil stare", which Carpenter found "unsettling", "creepy", and "completely insane". Carpenter's experience would inspire the characterization Loomis would give of Michael to Sheriff Brackett in the original film. Debra Hill has stated the scene where Michael kills the Wallace's German Shepherd was done to illustrate how he is "really evil and deadly". The ending scene of Michael being shot six times, and then disappearing from the ground outside the house, was meant to terrify the imagination of the audience. Carpenter tried to keep the audience guessing as to who Michael Myers really is—he is gone, and everywhere at the same time; he is more than human; he may be supernatural, and no one knows how he got that way. To Carpenter, keeping the audience guessing was better than explaining away the character with "he's cursed by some..." For Josh Hartnett, who portrayed John Tate in Halloween H20, "it's that abstract, it's easier for me to be afraid of it. You know, someone who just kind of appears and, you know [Mimics stabbing noise from Psycho] instead of an actual human who you think you can talk to. And no remorse, it's got no feelings, that's the most frightening, definitely." Richard Schickel, film critic for TIME, felt Michael was "irrational" and "really angry about something", having what Schickel referred to as "a kind of primitive, obsessed intelligence". Schickel considered this the "definition of a good monster", by making the character appear "less than human", but having enough intelligence "to be dangerous". Myers is a "product of normal surburbia - all the repressed emotion of fake Norman Rockwell smiles". Michael Myers spent fifteen years "attuning himself to this force to the point where he is, as Loomis says, 'pure evil'"...all the years he was in the asylum. Nightdance artist Tim Seeley describes the character's personality in John Carpenter's 1978 film as "a void", which allows the character to be more open to interpretation than the later sequels alloted him. He surmises that Michael embodies a part of everyone; a part people are afraid will one day "snap and knife someone", which lends to the fear that Michael creates on screen. A study was conducted by California State University's Media Psychology Lab, on the psychological appeal of movie monsters—Vampires, Freddy Krueger, Frankenstein's monster, Jason Voorhees, Godzilla, Chucky, Hannibal Lecter, King Kong, The Alien, and the shark from Jaws—which surveyed 1,166 people nationwide (United States), with ages ranging from 16 to 91. It was published in the Journal of Media Psychology. In the survey, Michael was considered to be the "embodiment of pure evil"; when compared to the other characters, Michael Myers was rated the highest. Michael was characterized lending to the understanding of insanity, being ranked second to Hannibal Lecter in this category; he also placed first as the character who shows audiences the "dark side of human nature". He was rated second in the category "monster enjoys killing" by the participants, and believed to have "superhuman strength". Michael was rated highest among the characters in the "monster is an outcast" category.
  • Michael Myers is a legend a force to be reckoned with If you will, he can't die he's evil himself
  • He certainly is one heck of a tail kicking machine....but in the newest Halloween series it does appear that he was in fact killed...he was shot in the upper neck and stabbed in the face and eyes over and over again by his sister so im pretty sure he aint coming back from that. And seeing how the cops were there to verify his death i think he may actually be dead now.
  • My honest opinion? I believe he is just a figment of the imagination, not real at all. i believe that someone else has been killing the people in the movie, or it was all just a bad dream. i bet, if they ever make another movie, it will be little Mike waking up in his bed, crying and screaming. NOW THAT would make a good ending to a series. And maybe if he jumped out of his window and died, that would be cool too (:
  • In Halloween 6 Producers Cut we find that he is under the Curse of Thorn thanks to an ancient Druid Cult and he the Thorn Curse keeps him alive until he fulfills the curse of killing off his bloodline. The Power is only active on the night of Halloween (Samhain)
  • At the end of the first movie Jamie Lee Curtis asks Donald Pleasence who Michael is. He says, "He's the boogieman."
  • Dr. Loomis says it several times throughout the series.. He is just plain, evil.
  • He's Evil personified, I mean Loomis shot him six times, he shot him six times. He's not human. He has the devils eyes.
  • i thikn he sold his soule to the devil in one of the movies and hes always back for revenge just like jason voorhies. or freddy kruger.
  • lmfao! thats what ive always wondered....i think he's wearing a bullet proof vest or his skin is made of steel or they are shooting him with air soft bullets
  • US News & World Report releases an annual ranking that usually lists he same good schools. You mentioned the east coast, which usually means the northeast so here are some of the best. In New England, The best public school is the University of Connecticut, it has a phenomenal business school and School of Pharmacy. However, it's engineering programs really separate the school from others. United Technologies is located in Connecticut and they sponsor the school so a lot of graduates go to work for one of their companies such as Pratt & Whitney who are building the engines for the new joint strike fighter for the Navy and Air Force, Otis Elevators, Sikorsky Helicopters which builds Black Hawks, Hamilton which works on materials for astronauts. Other good public schools are further south like the University of North Carolina, University of Virginia, and west are the University of Michigan. The northeast's bread and butter are the private schools. Their are 60 just in the Boston area. The best are MIT, Boston College, Boston University, Tufts, and Babson. You can request information from their websites. Boston College's Caroll School of Business is world-class, and it is in Chestnut Hill an exclusive area of Boston. It has a good balance of academic excellence, social life in Boston, and sports programs. For any engineering program, MIT is the best in the world. Their graduates are recruited into some really excited fields of study. It is amazingly difficult to get into the school but only 40 miles down the Pike is another really good school for engineering, whose graduates have gone on to be part of the wiz generation in Silicon Valley. Check out Worcester Polytechnical Institute (WPI). As far as schools that weigh SAT and AP scores heavily. None of them do anymore. Harvard found a few years ago that one of the worst indicators of a students academic ability is their SAT scores. They found they had a higher dropout and fail out rate and as such they downgraded the weight they lend to the scores. It was published in Businessweek and US News and now most schools are following suit. The best barometer for them is an overall track record, strong GPAs, active in high school through sports and clubs, and essays. US News is currently listing MIT as the best engineering school, where you can receive a doctorate in the country. The next two are both in California; Stanford and UC Berkely. The best schools that arn't Ivies arn't in the east anymore. Take a look at Notre Dame, University of Chicago, and Northwestern in the midwest. Rice and the University of Texas also have excellent reputations now. If you have your set on the east, MIT is the place to be. UConn will get you a great education, and a good balance of social life. Georgia Tech down south has a great engineering program and WPI has a great alumni network. Good luck.
  • Take a look at state colleges. There are many along the East coast. They are less expensive than private colleges and offer great education. New Hampshire (skiing, boating, swimming) but quiet country Massachusetts- home of Carnegie-Mellon and MIT New York - many city and state colleges have agreements with private colleges to access their libraries although housing may be expensive but tuition isn't bad. Work is plentiful. Florida - Don't know much about it but I'm sure there are others who can fill you in about it. I recommend CUNY or SUNY near the city because Wall Street is close and you can get an internship there during your studies. Either way best of luck.
  • If finances are a concern, then you need to apply to some good public colleges in your home state. These will have the lowest overall price tag for you, and can act as a financial backup in case the financial aid at other colleges doesn't turn out as you'd need it to. In addition, the public unis tend to have very strong computer science programs. In addition, you also want to apply to some colleges, public *and* private, where your stats are on the high side for the school. If your SATs and/or GPA are high for a school, that can increase your chances of getting some merit aid - aid based on grades - at that school. It's unlikely that you'd get much aid at a public college that's outside your home state. That's something to keep in mind re: your choice of colleges. Be careful about taking on too much in student loans. When you get into a school, they'll send you a financial aid award letter. Look at that letter carefully. Keep in mind that grants and scholarships, you don't have to pay back; but loans, you do. And you do not want to graduate from college holding excessive student loan debt. For example, if you got into a public school in your home state, the sticker price might be $15k per year. You get a grant for $5k. The amount you'd have to take out in loans is $10k. You get into a private university. The sticker price is $40k per year. You get a scholarship for $15k, and get all excited. Don't be. You'd have to take out $25k in loans every year. That's not okay. You'd graduate with $100k in debt. That's impossible to manage. The public school, even with lower scholarships, is a lot cheaper, and IMO, a far better financial choice.

  • Regarding war? It's because of political agendas and peoples' Ignorance and FEAR. We Americans may say we don't want war but what did we do? We attacked an innocent nation, Iraq and we have killed 900,000 Muslims to date as a result. Imagine if 900,000 people were killed in the US--that's more than the population of San Francisco! Americans would be enraged if 900,000 Americans were killed, but there seems to be little concern on many Americans' part for the welfare of innocent foreigners (Iraqis and Muslims). We Americans have also allowed the deaths of 5,000 of our own beloved soldiers, but we have fed ourselves on the bizarre belief that our soldiers are dying for our US "freedom' ('Freedom' has nothing to do with it--we're in Iraq because of the Bush administration's naive belief that forcing an Arab nation to become a democracy would create a 'domino effect' which would cause all other Middle Eastern nations to want democracy too....and then America would become loved, not hated. Bush should have listened to the experts who said Iraq did not have the necessary characteristics to lend itself to a democracy (high literacy rate, strong middle class, thriving capitalistic market, tolerance of minorities, etc.). Bush goofed Big Time. .....and our recent financial chaos comes down to greed on all levels. Poverty? Well, the US doesn't pay much attention to countries that we can't exploit for their natural resources--for example, the African nations, where ethnic cleansing has killed 100,000s of innocent people but the US and UN have done little to nothing to protect these people. But what's in it for the US, if Africa doesn't have oil for us to exploit? Other countries also have political agendas. Take Russia--their oil flows through Georgia, so of course Russia cares about controlling Georgia. Russia also cares about its image as a 'superpower,' having crumbled during Bush Senior's administration (no, the Berlin wall did not fall during Reagan's administration). The Russian people feel humiliated by their nation's sudden erasure as a great military power and thus they support Russia's invasion of Georgia. As Americans, what can we do to stop the chaos? First, weapons productions is the largest single contributer to the US gross national income, constitute 15% of the GNP. Weapons producers are Big Lobbyists in Congress. The US not only makes weapons for US use, but US companies SELL weapons, old and new, to foreign countries--thus the California chips in land mines used against US soldiers in Gulf One. Thus the fact that Afghanistani tribes are heavily armed with US and Russian weapons (the US and Russia were fighting each other in Afghanistan, a war by proxy. No wonder the Afghans hate both the US and Russia)! If the US wants peace, we have to start by STOPPING being such a mass killer of people in other nations, and a provider of weapons for countries world-wide. Power and Greed rule, not compassion or humanity.
  • Because the world is under the influence of the Creator's chief adversary. He's both very angry & very frantic, & unreasoningly seeks revenge against God, but has been confined to the area around earth.

  • The problem is that most people who say they want these things, are not sincere. Think about it. If you want something, you work towards obtaining that goal right? When is the last time you saw someone claim to want peace or to end world hungry and then actually do something other then continue to complain? Granted there are some people who do work towards these ends, but they are not in the majority.
  • because each person has a different mental image of what "no war and poverty" means. Cultures are different, religions are different, and even though wants may be the same, they are defined differently. For example, the people who admire Osama Bin Laden, are willing to kill, justifying taking innocent lives while doing so, by calling the murders a holy war. I cannot conceive of a godly entity of any name condoning the killing of children, babies, and innocent women. And yet, these "warriors" actually BELIEVE what they do will get them into Heaven!!!
  • No doubt you have wondered why men have been so fruitless in their efforts to bring about world peace. The Bible tells us why. At Revelation 12:12 (NW) it exposes the one responsible for world woes, which exposé shows why men have been helpless to compete with world problems. Note what it says: “Woe for the earth and for the sea [the restless masses of humanity], because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing he has a short period of time.” There is your answer. Satan the Devil, invisible to and mightier than man, is responsible for world chaos, and not God. These woes are bound to increase upon mankind until God brings to an end Satan the Devil and all his wicked supporters in the battle of Armageddon. This he promises he will do shortly. Paul helps us to appreciate this fact by saying: “For his part, the God who gives peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.”—Rom. 16:20, NW. After this takes place, there will be world peace; peace among all families of the earth, peace between man and animals, peace between man and God. And for how long? The psalmist answers: “In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.” (Ps. 72:7)
  • 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA... Please read this abstract first : Israel women trafficking soars Between 3,000 and 5,000 women have been smuggled into Israel in the past four years to work as prostitutes, according to a parliamentary inquiry. The report described how the women are sold at public auctions for as much as $10,000 and forced to work up to 18 hours a day. On average the women receive only three percent of the money they earn from prostitution, the report said. Most of the women are from the former Soviet Union. Many are raped and beaten as they are smuggled into Israel over the Egyptian border, the inquiry found. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/4380067.stm ______________________________________... Okay, so I want to know your thoughts about the sex slavery in the 21st century, which is actually found in a territory called "Israel". ( the israelis are the people who made war on civilians in dec 2008 - Jan 2009). Okay so here are the questions: 1) How do you see the effect of sex slavery run by israelis on other people of the world? 2) Who do you blame for this crime? 3) How can we stop those israelis from dehumanizing people? Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
  • It's not really "Israelis" who have a dirty history with sex-slavery. It's Jews, whether they are Israelis or not. Whether or not the many people throughout the world and in all periods of its history have been antisemites for calling the Jews "corrupters," they were certainly telling the truth. No nation having a Jewish political encystment will avoid trouble for very long. They will seek out and possess all the key positions of power, control, finance, influence, authority... and, once they have them, they will use them to their own good and to the detriment of everyone else. They are nation-wreckers who can be compared to a cancer-causing virus. Sex slavery is one of the activities that Jews have been known for since the days of Ancient Rome. And the only time of which I know for sure that their sex-slavery activities were significantly reversed was during the Nazi advance through Europe during the early 1940s. For a few years, Europe was clean. Alas, the dirt all came back. Names to research: Arie Scher (Israeli diplomat). Georges Schteinberg (Jewish college professor). Lorenzo Chaim (Jewish boys' camp counselor). Seth Bekenstein (member of the tennis club of Walnut Creek, California). Al Goldstein (Jewish magazine publisher). David Kaye (Jewish rabbi). Richard Steve Goldberg (Jewish aerospace engineer). Alan J. Horowitz (Jewish child psychologist). Someone else said that sex slavery should be blamed on the Russian mafia. The "Russian" mafia is a Jewish organized crime syndicate. Yes, it's JEWISH. It employs ethnic Russian criminals as henchmen and muscle-boys, but the leaders are Jews. The same thing can be said for the Bolshevik Revolution and the Communist Party of the former Soviet Union. At the top levels, it was over 80 percent Jewish. The US government won't crack down on Israel with sanctions, or with a military invasion, despite the fact that it merits those actions more than Iran does, more than any Arab country ever has, on the number and egregiousness of its violations of UN resolutions and international laws. Why not? Reach in your wallet and pull out a $1 bill. Do you see those words "Federal Reserve Note" on it? The Jews run the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve is a for-profit corporation of Jewish bankers with some very shady business practices, which includes counterfeiting money -- but doing so with an exclusive license. The Federal Reserve creates money "out of nothing," which means that at no time did they ever do any valuable work or create anything of durable, tangible value. And then they lend that money at usurious interest rates. This lets these Jewish bankers cheat everybody else out of their money, while staying a safe distance away from the workers whom they are cheating. The law that lets the Jews do this to us is the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. It was sneaked through a rump Congress while most of our elected legislators were home on Christmas vacation. If the US government were to crack down on Israel, the Federal Reserve would crack down on the US government by denying it any financing. The US government would go broke and be unable to pay the soldiers or the munitions makers. The Jews also run the media and can determine what the public will hear about any public official. They can make a man famous and popular overnight. And they can ruin the political career of another man who has been righteous and respectable all his life. So the Jews have leverage on the US government both corporately, with the banks, and personally, with the fear of the smear. And that's why Israel just keeps on using European women, kidnapped by the Jewish "Russian" mafia, as sex-slaves.
  • Last year, the United Nations named Israel as one of the main destinations in the world for trafficked women; it has also consistently appeared as an offender in the annual US State Department's Trafficking in Persons (Tip) report. BBC is ""ANTI-SEMITIC"" source ?? LOLOLOL ........... Where do these guys come from? Pluto? Okay, so that's just my own openion: 1- The Israeli government in the first place, they have the power to crack it down, but they don't want to. 2- Israelis and jews who accept the slavery in 21st century. 3- USA must move and help those women who are being sold in public auctions. http://news.bbc.co.uk/ 2/hi/middle_east/ 7070929.stm (remove the spaces before 2 and before 7, for the link to work)
  • 1) No more or less than such crimes done by others throughout the world. 2) I blame the criminals. The criminals here are those who engage in such crimes, which is not ALL Israelis nor Israel the country. 3) Who are the "we" here? It is a crime. According to Israeli law it is a crime. Israel authorities have the responsibility of prosecuting these people. Are you trying to claim they aren't? See the problem here. I think that you actually care very little about this issue. Why? Because the way you present it is in such a manner that is consistent with the "anti Israel talking point". In other words, you are using the issue as something to bash Israel.
  • Its discusting.. the women think there going to get a better life and wind up beaten and abused, im sorry but people from those countries accuse americans and sometimes australias of all kinds of thinks but the way the men of the countries other treat there women is terrible.. i have just read 2 books from an orther who spend years in saudi arabia and befriended a decendent of the royal family its a story that made me cry so many times from the suffering of those women. there called, "princess" and princess saultannas daughters" by jean sasson.
  • In that case, I would probably blame the Russian mafia. I would also blame anyone that bought them and punish them severely. Blaming it on Israel would be idiotic unless you were naive enough to think it doesn't happen in other countries. Arabs still take slaves and commit genocide against blacks. It would be just as silly to blame all Arabs as if they all did it. It is just lame anti-Israeli propaganda when framed as if we need to stop Israelis from dehumanizing people. They are by far the most descent nation in the region when it comes to people being free.
