Frequently asked questions about bad credit loan florida

  • I attended a "semester" at a private college in Florida about 5 years ago, then stopped when I realized I could not transfer my financial aid and didn't have the budget to continue going. Consequently, I owe a balance of about $1,050 to that school. I hadn't been working due to some private family matters, but now that I am ready to go back to a public school and work, I wonder if I can get the load deferred for a couple months to start working in order to pay it back, but get my financial aid (that I am eligible for) released at the same time. The financial aid is available for the beginning of the next school term, but won't be released without my squaring away this loan one way or another. So can someone please advise? And yes, I know it's best to take care of these matters ahead of time, but there are extenuating circumstances.
  • The short answer is No. If the loan is that old, it is very unlikely the school will allow you to NOT pay it off to release you to go back to school and get fin aid. You have a proven history of long term non-payment... they aren't likely going to work with you to continue this. Your best bet is to start a payment plan with them, pay reasonable and consistent payments every month over a period time (6 mo- a year) and approach them then. The worse thing they can say is no... (very, very likely). It is only then, after you have shown a desire to repay with they even THINK about working with you. Be aware that some schools turn in defaults and outstanding balances over to collection agencies... who therefore turn your info over to put black marks on your credit report. Once that happens, you can be sued and they can garnish paychecks, even seize state and federal income tax returns.
  • I started off majoring in accounting. At first I was doing pretty good but then as I progressed I started to really have a hard time earning good grades. Its like the more I tried the more I failed and I am the type of person who doesn't like to quit so ended up ruining my already borderline gpa. Well, I eventually changed my major to marketing but now I really want to go to grad school. My job is willing to pay for up the five thousand a semester for six credit hours but it has to be a florida public university and I refuse to take out more student loans but I am afraid that I will not be accepted into grad school with my low gpa. What am I to do? The only schools I find that will definitly accept me are private and really expensive.
  • Take time and work. After 5 or 6 years, your college career will be of no consequence to an MBA program- your work experience will be much more important. Take notes on projects you work on and build your resume.
  • So my grades have been at it's worse this year, it was so bad I had 2.8 GPA last 9 weeks. I'm working on getting them up, chemistry is the worse, I had a 28% , so far I have raised it up to a 53 and my last test was a 78 instead of a 32%. Next year I'm taking ap English (counts as a college credit) also statistics( another college credit with math) also geometry, also a regular world cultures, with a dance class and another technology class. I am not a strong test taker, but I'm definitely am going to put more effort into them, i even gotten a tutor that I see once a week for chem, also my second year into a language. I am making an effort, but it always seems as if it's never enough. My goal is to go to a college by or on the beach for something with medical(I know, I've got my hands full with a thought like that) but none of my family went to college except my mom who had me at 16 who is now a nurse and went to community college, but I want bigger and better, i want to make a yearly salary of 100,000 and support myself on my own when I'm older, I was thinking maybe dermatology? Some colleges I'm looking into are mostly in Florida until I saw UCLA, and fell in love, I want to be in a sorority and do the full out college deal. If I keep up my efforts and try to get a GPA of 3.6-3.8, will I have a chance to get in? Also, any suggestions for me? Any colleges? I NEED to get out of the cold and snow, I want hot and beachy, everyone tells me that's where I belong since I talk about it so much :) Oh and SAT/ACT suggestions since I am taking them next year? Thanks!
  • 1. I think you are a bit all over the place. You do have a vivid imagination – and I think it is very charming. 2. You have to keep in mind that to go to an out of state university will be very costly. UCLA will cost you $50,000 per year plus $2000 or more to get back home twice a year during the holidays. 3. Medical school would take at least 12 years, and if you want to be a dermatologist, it can be up to 14 (if you want to do a fellowship in the ermatopathology) – and you might as well go to an undergrad University in your state to save money, because medical school will be very expensive and you don't want to take a huge amount of loan on top of the undergrad degree at UCLA. Here is a link about going to medical school, and in this case, at UCLA. https://www.eeb.ucla.edu/images/EEBprepr...Best wishes
  • I wasn't at home but my roommates told me that a police officer came looking for me to arrest me or something the officer told my roommates that if i didnt pay for this old debt i have i would go to jail. he left this paper with a court date and the info of the party that is suing which is WAMU this account was closed back in 06 or 07 and attached is a copy of a statement fresh from 08? what? this debt appears on my credit as written off as of this year idk what to do should i go to court or pay anything i don't have the money to pay it all of course the debt was originally 1,523 but they are claiming an additional 962 of interest up to this year plus 228 of attorneys fees will i go to jail if i just ignore it?
  • so if i go to court what can i expect? what should i say or shouldn't say? all assets i have is my old 01 car which i don't want to loose so should i say i don't have any assets? i earn like 150 a week with my part time job and nothing else i support my daughter do you think they will order a garnishment?
  • First of all you WILL NOT GO TO JAIL, EVEN IF YOU FAIL TO SHOW UP FOR THE COURT DATE!!!!!! First thing is look for the court address, the docket number, and the date of the hearing. If none of this appears on the summons, then it could be fake. If it does appear call the court and verify that it is legitimate. If legitimate, then be sure to show up. At present four U.S. states —North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and Pennsylvania do not allow wage garnishment at all except for debts related to taxes, child support, federally guaranteed student loans, and court-ordered fines or restitution for a crime the debtor committed. Several other states observe maximum thresholds that are lower than the 25 percent maximum provided by federal law. States may also prohibit garnishment altogether in certain circumstances. For example, in Florida the wages of a person who provides more than half the support for a child or other dependent are exempt from garnishment altogether (though this exemption is subject to waiver). Loans and negotiations with creditors can also help debtors to avoid wage garnishment. So worst case scenario they may be awarded a judgment. Hope this helps answer your question EDIT::::::: The FDCPA does not apply to the original creditor and the officer did not violate any laws, the use of threat of arrest must come from a third party collection agency or any one hired to collect the debt. I have provided a link to a source you can download and read regarding the FDCPA to back my answer.
  • I don't know what country your in and if it's the U.S. then I am saddened. If your in the U.S. I would get a lawyer right away you cannot be threatened like that in a summons. A summons is to go to court and it is to be delivered and nothing else, believe me whoever said those things to your room mates screwed up big time. You will not pay a dime upfront unless the court finds that you owe and allows a garnishment and if so then you still have thirty days to organize before it starts. Appear in court, (and really if you don't go then the judge will award the prosecution by default) but potentially you could sue everyone involved in the summons for threatening and harassing you. Namely the idiot who brought the summons if not the entire Sheriff's dept. (if in the U.S) Get a lawyer right away and make sure your room mates will testify to this. File for a chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy if you have other debts and start over if necessary. No you won't go to jail and can't go to jail for an old debt or any debt for that matter but the idiots behind this ignorance probably will if you go the distance. No one can threaten or harass you in this manner, ever, at any time. Calm your nerves and know you have the upper hand. Man I would nail those bastards to the wall for that.
  • Actually, the officer broke the law by stating that you would go to jail of you didn't pay the debt. Under The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (aka FDCPA), 15 U.S.C. § 1692 Threatening arrest or legal action that is either not permitted or not actually contemplated is prohibited. In the United States, there are no debtor prisons. You can NOT be sent to jail for not paying a debt. What the police officer came by for was to give you a summons to appear in court. And yes, you need to show up in court and give your side of the argument. If you actually do owe the debt, then the judge will render a judgement and tell you to pay the debt. Then if you don't pay it, they can go back to court and have them garnish your wages.
  • You will not go to jail over a debt -- this person was fibbing Second, you will not get into trouble if you do not show up to court, BUT, the creditor suing you will get a default judgment, meaning since you couldn't show up to defend yourself, they get what they are asking for. Third, after they get a judgment, they can garnish your wages or bank account for 25% of your earnings.
  • Tell the judge you can only afford to pay 2.00 dollars a week if that is the case and see if he/she will rule in your favor. PS. One dollar is legal tender for all debts public and private so paying one dollar will be meeting the criteria of meeting your financial obligation. It's just my opinion anyway. Others may have a better solution. Good luck!!!
  • You can never go to jail over defaulted credit card debt. Is there a confirmed court case docket number on this notice?
  • in America, no one goes to jail for a debt. they could, however, garnish your wages. did you attempt to pay it off or get an installment plan?
  • Worst case scenario you could be in contempt of court if you do not show up...which could result in jail time...but highly unlikely. Most likely if you do not show up, there will be a default judgement and you will lose the case and be ordered to pay whatever they are asking. For your own benefit, it is best to go to court and try to defend yourself in front of the judge as to why you do not owe whatever it is they say you do.
  • Well about 5 years ago i really like this girl! Her parents loved me and always welcomed me to sunday dinners to their house. She wasn't really into me but i would still come around trying to ask her out on a date, i had one date with her and that's pretty much it! She was on love with another guy i found out! I stopped coming over after she told me she wanted to be with him which was fine! They ended up getting married and had two kids. Well things got bad because she came home from work one day and caught him in bed with another woman in their apartment. He lost his job as a bus driver turning into a total bar drunk and ended up moving to florida to be with another girl which he currently has pregnant. He has a total of 5 kids, (two from a previous marriage) and one on the way. This girl i liked for some reason called me up today asking what i was up to? She told me on the phone she always thought i was handsome (which i don't believe from her) and wanted to give me a shot now? I was like what shot? She said of us dating? I was like no thank you! I found out her is getting kicked out her apt because now she doesn't have a job. She then called back and started crying about how she doesn't have nowhere to go and have kids she needs help with?? I'm like ok, why the hell are you asking me! She is asking if it's ok to for her to move in with me and the kids? Are women seriously this dumb to think a guy who she made second choice and know she's damage good is going to take care of them! I told her to go to a shelter and don't call back! She keeps calling back and mentioning she is coming over with these kids i never seen before because she has nowhere to go. How is this my problem? How can i stop her, i dont want to be the sucker/nice guy anymore to women.
  • Oh, wow! This sounds ridiculous… You do not want all of this drama and it’s not yours to deal with. Be straightforward and tell her NO. Ask her what makes her think that she can just barge into your life and house like that. Tell her that you “kind of liked her” years ago. But let her know that you have no feelings for her whatsoever in the present moment. And even if you did – you are not an idiot to take her with 2 kids after a thing like that. Tell her that you feel sorry for her problems, but not enough to let her ruin your life. Tell her she has no place in your home and neither do her kids. Offer her advice - to go and seek her parents’ or siblings’ help. And if she can’t get it, she should take out a loan from a friend, use her savings/credit cards, search for a new job, etc. She could then file to receive child support from her ex-husband. Be firm and serious. After you do this, hang up if she refuses to understand and accept your friendly advice. And never pick up again. If she shows up at your place, call the cops. Whatever you do - do NOT let her stay at your place - not even for a night! It will be impossible to evict "an unemployed single mother with 2 children" after that. And you will have a lot of problem with her. Avoid letting her (and her kids) over at your place - at all costs. Hope this helps. Good luck!
  • You could say: Look, I'm really sorry for what you've been through. But I just don't have the place or the resources to help you and your kids. I'm sorry, but I don't have the room for you and I just can't "make it" just like that.So...Goodbye. I made that sound a lot easier than it is doing it, but wow. She has some issues. It is NOT your problem. Or, you could try this: I don't want you around here with your kids because you are not my responsibility. I've already told you to go (to a shelter) and get help, but you keep coming back and this is making me feel real uncomfortable. You and your children are not my problem. I think that she thinks you'll take her back, but honestly, you don't need her adding more trouble to your plate. I hope this works and that things get better. :)
  • exciting situation. sounds like she could turn to family individuals (mothers and fathers, siblings) at a time like this. Having somebody stay with you isn't hardship-free adequate in stable situations. She have been given plenty guts coming at you like this. She isn't questioning quickly. As a mom, how can she only so willingly desire to stay with yet another guy and demonstrate her young ones to this. the youngsters only misplaced a dad (however if he grow to be fairly ****). i do no longer blame you on your decision. besides the incontrovertible fact that, even nevertheless you won't be in a position to have her stay with you, do no longer forget that she is going via a no longer hardship-free time. human beings do make undesirable possibilities and he or she has made hers, yet attempt to no longer be to heartless and kick her greater whilst she is down.
  • Tell her if she calls back you are going to call the police.
  • Hi, I am having issues with indecisiveness regarding where I want to live. I was born in St. Louis, MO, but have lived in Central Florida ever simce I was 6mos old. I am 30yrs old. I used to think I would never want to move out of FL, but after moving in w/ my biological mother back in 2003, I decided that I hated FL and I wanted to move to the Midwest. I have serious issues w/ my mom b/c she was a heroine junkie when I was born and was nonexistant as a parent. I believe that having to live w/ her the past few years has left me really messed up. I finally got to move to a small town in SE MO last October. I didn't get upset when I left FL. But, after I was up there for a couple of weeks, I decided I wanted to come back. When I came back in late Nov, I was very upset and didn't want to leave MO. I have been stranded in FL ever since. About 2 weeks ago, I started having issues deciding between St. L or a smaller town. Now, I'm having problems deciding if I even want to go at all. I am really stressed out b/c my aunt is wanting me to "hurry up and make up my mind" and get rid of my furniture b/c she found out that she will be having to move too. She is very bad about putting me and my dad's side of the family down and telling me everything I do wrong. Her comments have the ability to leave me depressed for the rest of the day. My mom, OTOH, dosn't put me down and supports my ideas, but is like a 5yr old. She will make a mess and not clean it up. I feel like between the two of them, I would be trading the fire for the frying pan. I have been waiting to get out of FL for so long and I think I nearly had a nervous breakdown when I came back, so I don't understand why I'm upset about going back to MO all of the sudden? I was excited about it up until about 2 wks ago. Do you think I have developed Stockholm down here or something??? Another issue is that I own a house in FL w/ my mom and I can't get out of it b/c the lender won't allow her to buy me out b/c her credit score is terrible. I keep thinking of the financial reprecussions in my future if this goes into forclosure b/c she didn't make the payments after I move to MO. It would ruine my credit too since my name is on the loan also. I had also taken a $50K lean against this house when I moved that I'm making payments on. I don't know if I'm coming or going.
  • Help your mother, pay off the house, get rid of the lien. You can then charge your mother a reasonable rent (if and when she can pay it) and let her live at ease.
  • There are several infestations all happening at once! Many citrus trees, including lime trees, as well as plumeria trees, are dying off from severe insect (mite and scale) infestations which are being spread by a species of ants. Mites & scale insects usually feed on the underside of leaves and on young, developing tissues. These infestations become a significant problem under hot, dry conditions, and with global warming, island conditions have been hotter & drier, so these infestations have been worsened! This problem is usually easily identified by the crowds of bugs on the undersides of leaves. The bottoms of leaves will appear speckled with bugs, something like this: http://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profiles080...The ants farm the mite & scale on trees. Scale & mite insects suck sap from their host plant to survive. They also produce a sweet, sticky substance called ‘honeydew’, which is a food source for many common ant species. Ants attracted by honeydew will farm scale & mites and often interfere with their predators; they may even move scale & mite eggs to new sites.These ants are becoming more resistant to pesticides. Also, a recent economic recession in Hawaii is causing many tree owners to neglect their land & trees, allowing these insects and diseases to spread! Citrus of all types also came under attack from the one-sixteenth-inch-long citrus blackfly in 1996 when the first infestation was discovered on Oahu, a department statement said. This fly spread to Maui and the Big Island within a month. Kauai held out until this year. Although the blackfly really is black, it belongs to a group of insects called whiteflies which can seriously damage citrus trees by sucking nutrients from their leaves. For more info on this pest, see this link: http://starbulletin.com/2000/07/13/news/...Making matters worse, this is happening at the same time as an invading foreign citrus tree disease called citrus canker. Citrus canker (CC) is caused by the bacterial pathogen Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri. To see if this is the problem you are having, see this link: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/PP116This disease is suspected to have come in via Japan or via Florida somehow, possibly by Japanese tourists, FL tourists, or Japanese people or Floridians who moved to Hawaii and smuggled in some contaminated citrus (or other trifoliate host plants) with them. Since 1996, hundreds of thousands of homeowners in Miami, Florida have lost their backyard citrus trees because of this disease. Thanks to the difficulties with selling homes, as well as with getting loans & credit in Hawaii over the last year or so, a lot of folks here don't have the money to properly treat these diseases when the symptoms are mild, so epidemics are occurring. :( If you take a sample of your diseased tree foliage to a Hawaii agricultural extension service or a larger nursery, they can help identify your particular problem for you. Hope this helps!

  • Sorry...I had to say it... Lyme disease?
  • Im a 18 year old who graduated in 2010. I didnt do the greatest in school but i made a complete change in the last two years of high school. But i still ended up with a pretty weak GPA and i got SAT scores that werent that impressive. My family has very little money, and i just graduated in Florida but i moved in with my mom in ohio to go to college out there. Ok that was the overview and here is what i want. I Have a list of colleges i want to go to. Most of them are universitys and one is a community college. I want to stay near my family and mom because its good for support while im in college. Here are my problems: I have no money to really pay for college or even a university. But i can get student loans and the FAFSA will help. I did bad in high school at first and i probably wont get into any of the universitys i want to go to. But its fine because i can start at the community college and work my way up to a university of my choice. I might be considered an out of state student due to me graduating in Florida even though i lived in Ohio for about 13 years and my mom lives in ohio. But as long as im in the college i want to go then im happy. Here is the real problem: my mom wants me to go to a college 2 hours away and its a college that I dont even want to go to. I read student reviews on it and the college doesnt look good at all. They told my mom they would consider me an in state student and that their tuition is really low so it will cost much less than a university. But students say tht thier credits dont transfer well into other universitys. But my mom turned in the application and is saying trust me im your mom i know whats best for you. But i mean, this is something i will be doing for a long time. Shouldnt i choose where i want to go? Even if the cost is greater, isnt it supposed to be what makes me happy? Family around and a good college that i want. How can i let my mom know any clearer? Shes not moved at all, and at any rate i may need to find a family member to move in with. Please give me some guidance.
  • Go to the college you want to go to. Believe me, you'll feel alot happier doing so. My mom told me the same thing and I listened to her. Now I'm at a college doing something I'm only content with, feeling miserable and unfulfilled. Going to community and working your way up to a University is actually a very smart thing. It can transfer to any school and you can at least get you Associates in the field you want for a lower price than a univesity. Also if your grades are good enough they may give you a scholarship. Your mom will always be your mom and they always say they know best but thats not always true. You are your best doing something that makes you happy career and goal wise. No offense to your mom but in this matter the only person that knows best is you.
  • properly first i would not confront your mom. once you're an person teach her how mature you're by applying speaking to her approximately your educational and profession objectives. permit her communicate her concerns and what not besides. whilst she mentions all the negatives, develop all the positives. in the top, permit her know it incredibly is quite your determination, yet you will somewhat pass after your dream together with her blessing. no count what, it incredibly is possibly to be confusing to permit you pass, yet till she's quite has some subjects, even she knows which you are going to depart the nest...or maybe nevertheless your waiting for it, possibly she's merely hasn't come to words with it yet; that's extremely authentic once you are the toddler or an basically baby.
  • You're 18 she can't stop you so go for it.
  • My parents have joint custody but i live with my mom and my dad pays child support. My dad has already tried to get custody of my brother and i because he doesnt like my stepdad hitting us. And my mom doesnt do anything about it becuase she's afraid. I would stay for my brother but i just cant. My dad lost the custody battle. That was when i was 16. I am about to turn 18 in 3 months. I was supposed to go to University at Buffalo for nursing, like i had already registered for classes and everything. Then my mom says that she cant pay for it and we cant get a loan. We cant get a loan because im too young (not 18 yet) so i need a cosigner and my mom has too many credit cards and crap so she cant qualify, my grandma is undergoing identity fraud (if thats how you say it) and my dad doesnt have good credit either he doesnt make much money. So now i am forced to go to community colleege and my mom cant even pay that. Its last minute so its too late to enroll in the payment plan so i have to pay the whole thing at once and my mom says she cant help me right now. Like she didnt even buy me anything for school. My grandma was going to buy me a laptop for school next week but now i have asked her to help me pay my tuition instead of getting the laptop. So i have to use the money from my summer job and money from my grandma to pay my tuition for the semester. And i have no clue how i am going to get books. It frustrates me that my mom goes on trips every year to like the bahamas and florida...she actuallyjust got a new car, because the previous one was stolen, and her insurance company didnt pay for it she is making the payments!! ..this is crazy i was so naive but now im learning that trips and fun isnt everything, i have to do whats best for my education, even if it means moving out of the good neighborhood and with my dad to the bad one. I'm sorry if im just venting, its been a war between the too familys and ive always chose my mom because i was materialistic. she actually used my puppy as her advantage to keep me with her. Anyway, i was wondering what i needed to do to move out and if the process would be as complicated as last time.
  • No once you reach eighteen you can pack your stuff and go where ever you want, as you no longer have any 'Guardians', you are classed in legal law as an adult and no one has any claim over you, only the government.
  • Wait until you are 18 and move out. You can live with whoever you want by that point. Once you are out, contact social services to report that your brother is being beaten by your step dad. Once you have filed that complaint then have your dad go back to court to fight for custody of your brother. Your complaint to social services and your personal testimony will help prove that your brother is living in a dangerous environment and would be better off with your dad. Or next time your step dad raises a hand to your brother, he should either call the police to report it or tell a counselor at school so they can report it. The more reports you have against your step dad the better chance your dad has to gain custody of your brother
  • When you turn 18 you are considered an adult by law. You have the choice of leaving no one can make u stay with ur mom. Once u are 18 neither of Ur parents cab clam u on taxes or anything like that. In my opinion i would go with my dad if a step dad was hitting me. You n your father should go to judge or a lawyer and let them know that your step dad hits you in your brother maybe your dad could end up getting custody of your brother
  • Well I used to be going to fortunately inform you sure until I learn the top it kind of feels because he isn't the organic father he are not able to simply overtly take you however what can occur is you'll be able to have him and say your grandmother or another elder blood relative that trumpet your mum or dad repute akin to uncle take your mom to court docket and turn out those faults of parenting and win a sole custody of your brother now you your self can decide on to reside with who you desire. At a distinct age the court docket believes the youngster is good minded ample to decide on which mum or dad to be with whilst proved and in spite of everything is finished your grandmother presents the doorstep dad sole custody of you and your brother. a tip is to have forged evidence to keep up in court docket so it may not drag out akin to transparent audio video bruising and your brother to agree one hundred% motive so much circumstances the youngest quickly after does not wish the mummy long gone and It ruins the case but when all you stated is correct you've got a definite win
  • Ok I have 2 kids. They are 12 and 9. I have been a single mom for a little over 9 years. I live in a different state than my children's father. Right now they are with him spending their summer break spending time with him. Here is the story. I lost my job in May. I was able to find another but, it pays very little. As of right now it's not even paying my rent every week. I have had to take out of my bank account to cover my bills. I am down to very little in the bank. About $250. I am also a full time student. So obviously i need a better job. I have been looking, but trying to find a job that will eventually work with the schedule around the kids and school has been impossible. So I"ve decided to not go back to school in August. (which kills me because Im 30 and want this over already). And I'm also contemplating keeping my kids in florida w/ their dad till I get back on my feet. That's the part I'm having a hard time with. I feel as if I'm failing as a mother not being able to support my kids. And no I don't receive child support. That has been an ongoing battle for 3 years now. But I don't know what else to do. I have borrowed a lot of money already from family. I can't do that anymore. My credit isn't good enough to get a loan. I live very modest. I don't pay a lot in rent. I own my car. I don't have cable. Only reason I have internet was for school. I receive government assistance for food already, but make too much for anything else. Which I don't understand. Am I a bad mother for not keeping my kids. I already hate being away from them during the summer. I have always had custody of my children. But I feel as if I don't have a choice right now. I could get 2 jobs to catch up, and bring them back home when everything is smoothed out.
  • Wow I could really feel your pain in that question. I think you're a great Mom. You're doing the best that you can do witha difficult situation, sometimes life is way harder than we ever imagined it could be. Just know that all of your decisions so far have been putting your children first and that's really important and you can feel proud of that. If they have to stay with their Dad for a bit, that's ok too, you shouldn't feel ashamed. They know you love them and you'll get them back soon, don't give up, stay strong like you have been. You're doing the right thing. xox
  • You could take a year off of school, that gives you time to find a better job and when a year comes around just be a part time student so you'll have plenty of time to work and you won't be paying all of these school bills. As far as where your children should stay, I think only you can decide that. You know what would be best for them.
  • You could tell your children's father that if he's not willing to give you the child support he owes you either in a lump sum or something EVERY WEEK, that he will have to support them by keeping them with him for a bit longer than the holidays, remind him of what this will involve, getting them into a new school, buying the things they need, getting them up and ready each morning, getting them to and from school each day, You are not a failure as a mother, your only a failure if your only concern is for yourself, and it obviously isn't. It shows that you care about your children so much, it's unfair of their father to expect you to do everything on your own, nobody can do everything on their own. Tell him that even HE knows that he's being unfair and unreasonable in forcing you to have to make this choice.i really hope you manage to get things smoothed out.good luck.
  • I really don't have any great advice here. I really wish I did. Would it be possible to maybe move in with a family member? Or maybe get a friend to move in with you to help make ends meet? I don't think you are a terrible mother at all. I hope everything works out for you and soon. Another option that I thought about is looking for a job in other states? Maybe one in FL where you can get back on your feet but still be able to see your children while you are doing that? My daughter is in FL visiting with her grandparents for a month and it is making me nuts wanting her home. I hope you don't have to be away from your kids anymore than you absolutely have to. Best of luck to you! PS I don't know where you are living but I know a LOT of places in order to save money are posting jobs on craigslist rather than than monster or career builder since those cost them some money to post. You and your family will be in my prayers!
  • It should not be your full responsibility to try and support you and your children.. That is what their father is for even if you are not together! You are not a bad mom to have them spend time with their father while you get on your feet. If they were my children, (if i was the father), then I would want them to be with me! I would really be looking into child support if I were you.
  • you know wat, im 18 i have no clue about marriage and having babies and then looking after them. but all i want to say miss is that i think your an extremely strong woman. and your family will be strong the day you are strong. so if i were you i would go to school and get a better job and then support my babies rather than having them hang around with their father in between. and are u kidding me?! u think you've failed as a mother?!! i respect women like you. u have so much courage. remember, the day ur kids will grow up and know how you took care of them, you'll know wat an amazing mumma you've been. i love my mum. mothers who really care for their babies can never EVER be a failure or "bad". best of luck.
  • opt for the NYC vacation, you are able to continually get yet another interest, yet you'll under no circumstances have a chance at this style of oportunity again, perhaps yet another vacation to NYC will come again, yet this chance in it truly is self received't. I say take a chance and opt for a buddy and convey contained in the recent three hundred and sixty 5 days with 1000's, you'll experience alive.
  • keep them in fla. you need to get on your feet. you dont want your kids to come back to you and you have to explain to them why the lights wont turn on or water wont run. get to your feet find that job and make your money.
  • i think that being a good mother for your kids is doing whats best for thim and i think that you should do what you think is best for them
  • I recently lost a civil lawsuit. The court awarded me to pay out $15,000 to the plaintiff. I was trying to negotiate payment terms with their lawyer to avoid recording the judgment against me. They wanted $500 per month and I was offering around $200-$215. The plaintiff never agreed, and now the judgment is entered against me. I’m 21 and just graduated from college. I work part time for my friend’s company and make $600 to $1000 per month. My only asset is my car, for which I still own $9000 in loan. I am now asked to submit the fact information sheet (from 1.977) about my income and assets to the court. Questions: 1. How and who will determine how much I can pay monthly on the judgment? 2. Can my car be taken away from me? ( fyi, i live in Florida) 3. What is going to happen to me if I can’t pay as much as the court orders me? 4. Can the judgment be taken off my public record if I offer higher payments to the plaintiff in the future (when I find a good job)? 5. How bad will this affect my credit? Thank you for any advice or comment!
  • I am not an attorney, but I believe the information is needed to determine how much you can pay a month. The judge or court will determine how much you must pay. From the sound of it, you may not have to pay more than you have offered. You will not lose your car. Make sure you include rent, food, gas, bills, etc. on the sheet.
  • The court will make a determination as to how much per month you must pay. They will base it on your income...and you might just have to find an additional part time job to make it. Generally, a car is considered a necessary piece of personal property (unless the car is the reason for the judgment) so the court is not likely to take it away...although if your vehicle is paid for, you might want to consider selling it and start taking the bus. Its cheaper anyway. You will pay what the court orders...so get used to that idea. You will have to adjust your lifestyle to make this possible. If you do not make your scheduled payments, you can be held in contempt of court. Once a judgment is entered into the public record, it will remain at least until the debt has been paid. Your credit will be toast for a period of at least seven years or until the judgment is paid and removed from your credit report.
  • The judgement against you on your cutting-edge state could be achieved in yet another state. meaning a judgment won in Nebraska could be enforced in California. So, as quickly as you accrue components, or get a job (finding on the judgment), the judgment holder can connect your components as they accrue. judgements do expire after 10 years, yet they're quite undemanding to restore. regardless of in case you have been to bypass in a foreign country and accrue components, maximum international locations are events to a treaty permitting human beings to honor judgments from the U.S.
  • Here is the letter well see for your self and let me know if you agree By Patrick J. Buchanan Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America .. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.. This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these: First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American. Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ' 60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks -- with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks. We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude??? Barack talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for blacks. Let him go to Altoona and Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for 'deserving' white kids. Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America ? Is it really white America 's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent? Is that the fault of white America, or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself? As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time? Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse? We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena . And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing. Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago. We are a Christian Nation even if Mr. Obama says we are not.
  • Yes we do need to have a conversation. We need to recognize that racism exist. We need to recognize that minorities are as racist as those they point fingers at. We need to recognize that because one white man is racist doesn't make the entire race racist. We need to recognize that I have to watch my language and be subject at anytime to a racist related comment even though i am not racist just because i am white and i may say or do something that can be INTERPRETED as racist. We need to separate facts from fiction and call a cat a cat in racism cases. We need to tell minorities that if they have had incidents in their lives it doesn't mean that anytime someone give them a side look they are racist.(white people have bad day too) We need to understand that white people are living the oppression the minorities supposedly suffer from as well ... if you don't believe me move you and your family to Harlem or East LA or South Florida ... see how well you will be seen, accepted and treated. And finally minorities need to understand that the more they cry "wolves" the more there will be resentment towards them and the less respect they will get ... educated professor or not. JOEY: We have successful black athletes, journalists, politicians, doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, actors, personalities, owners, entertainers, pilots, generals, professors, deans, researchers, scientists etc .... etc ... you mean to tell me that ALL of them were "lucky"? had a "white" man help them get the job? were rich at birth? They are probably all ashamed to see and hear about the excuses and cries everyday for those who failed and blame others for their failures. I respect those black successful people more than anybody else in this nation because they had the courage to say ... I will not take the easy path to demanding respect or cry racism and foul every time i fall ... i will EARN respect and make a name for myself ... ON MY OWN! You take it from a minority here who will never blame the white man for not making it. You either want to or you don't. Blame your parents for letting you rot in hell with 10 siblings but don't blame the system if they were to lousy to work or earn a living or hold off the "sleeping bag". I am proud of the black community who made it but i can't stand those who refuse to fight.
  • Yes, it is time. Race is intertwined with every aspect of our lives, and is a big issue. However, to truly talk about race, both sides must educate themselves first. Both sides will have to reconstruct society and their place in it. The first step is education. Education for whites (who typically know little about the problems of race for people of color) and education for minorities (who must be able to listen and well as teach). I have compiled a list of useful links. Some may be difficult to read, but all are necessary before anyone can have a productive dialogue about race. I encourage all to research and do outside reading. It is absolutely essential to do this when talking about race issues.
  • As long as the racism comes from Black and White, Brown and Yellow people it will never go away. I'm sorry but NO ONE deserves respect from another race when they feel that their race itself is superior. So I'm white, big deal, who cares but nothing gets on my nerves more that a black person who complains that they are discriminated against while all the while "talking ****" about white people. You have to give a little to get a little. Also is it Ironic that Obama's polls are slipping, even amongst DEMS yet 95% of black people in the country still support him?
  • So, a person who kicks me onto the floor but then helps me back up, i should thank them right? I might forgive them, but most likely i won't thank them. I do not agree with this. I do think that there needs to be a conversation about race because racism and discrimination still exists....on both sides. Why people can;t accept that there is a bad apple in every tree and just move on instead of fueling the fire, i will never know. It's a vicous cycle. Racist people of all colors feed off eachother.
  • No I disagree. I believe black people need to get over themselves and quit bring race into every issue. Think of yourselves as Americans not African Americans
  • What you fail to take into account, at least haven't mentioned at all, is the history of racism toward blacks in America and how the opportunities that were afforded white people were never there for blacks (heck, they weren't even considered to be a full human being at one point). We white people thrived and succeeded off white privilege and on the backs of black people, thus the need for the government to step in with civil rights and programs to give them a leg up. To twist this into victimhood or a 'oh poor me' attitude toward white people is simply wrong and short sighted at best. EDIT: Don't think I'm the pathetic one here, bubba. Get yourself an education then come back and talk.
  • Yes. And here it is. We used to have slavery. Now we don't. If we never did and your ancestors were not brought here, where would you be? How would your life be? Would it be better than it is now? If not, stop whining or go back. Conversation over. Oh yeah, stop sassing police officers. Their job is hard enough without you running your mouths when they are forced to detain you.
  • I agree-it is long overdue and the racial divide in this country is caused mainly by the programs and assistance given to blacks. If everyone was treated equally (as they should be) we would lessen these divides. racism will always exist to a point unfortunately but in today's society it is the black community creating these divides in my opinion.
  • You may currently only have a discussion about race if you take the politically correct viewpoints.
  • Politicians keep saying that. "We need to have a conversation about race in America!" What exactly does that mean? It seems like we've been talking about race for decades. Maybe, instead, it's time to stop giving "race" such importance. How about we STOP talking about it and make it a non-issue.
  • *They cannot get on social services. THEY ARE ILLEGAL! You are contradicting yourself. It's like asking why do cats enjoy barking. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AlQNC72EUUeti7UG1erGp7umDH1G;_ylv=3?qid=20120224164559AAFtEQP Florida illegals did not get this memo..... On June 14, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd announced that a 14-month investigation had culminated in the arrest of 33 suspected drug traffickers. The alleged head of the operation is Pablo Borgen, an illegal alien from the Dominican Republic. According to police, Borgen was getting at least a pound of heroin every month from New York. Most of those taken into custody have long criminal records. Most interestingly, several of those arrested, including the group’s ringleader were receiving food stamps and other government assistance. Borgen was reportedly receiving $900 a month from the government, on top of the estimated $70,000 a month he was raking in from illegal drug sales. Sheriff Judd told reporters: “You, the hard working taxpayer of this state, were paying him for this.” Borgen has been charged with three counts of trafficking heroin and conspiracy. He is currently being held on an ICE detainer.

Clearly they can..Why are supporters in denial and indicate, no illegals in U.S. have ever received food stamps,welfare, at any time,because they cannot get on social services ?
  • No where does it say if he has US citizen children. That is usually the way most illegals receive benefits. On behalf of their US citizen children. ..Wonder if these activists actually know what document fraud means ? State and local officials, upset that federal officials simply released an illegal immigrant who had allegedly committed welfare fraud, joined together Monday morning to voice their displeasure. State Rep. Doyle Heffley, R-122, said he and the other local officials are not happy with the way Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials handled the arrest of a man stopped last week by Beaver Meadows police for speeding and found to be an illegal alien. "I am very proud of the work of (Beaver Meadows Police) Chief (Mike) Morresi, and very disappointed in the federal government and how ICE handled the situation," Heffley said. "Chief Morresi had apprehended an individual who bad been an illegal alien for five or six years who had two ACCESS cards from two different states." Heffley was joined by fellow state Rep. Tarah Toohil, R-116; Carbon County Commissioner Wayne Nothstein, Packer Township Supervisor Tom Gerhard; Beaver Meadows Mayor William Hines, Beaver Meadows Councilman Jim Leonard, and former Carbon Commissioner Tom C. Gerhard. Heffley said $1.7 million worth of welfare fraud per year is being committed in Pennsylvania. "This situation goes to the heart of the problem of illegal immigration," Heffley said. "Illegal immigrants are stealing welfare benefits. It's an epidemic across the state." http://standardspeaker.com/news/official...Because they cannot. How are you going to apply for food stamps with no social security number, state ID, utility bills, etc.? Explain how illegals who steal a child's ss# manage to get credit cards,bank loans, buy houses, buy cars, obtain employment with use of fraud, get tax refunds, get medicare, Medicaid, drivers licenses, why do you think they call it fraud. When illegals turn to lying and stealing, you find Illegals who use document fraud excels at deception and should never be underestimated in their capacity to deceive.
  • I swear people in here are so damn stupid and dont know the difference between an illegal, a foreigner, an immigrant and a migrant worker...I use to work for welfare and this is not how it works...the media just slaps the word illegals in there without explaining how it really goes here in the US. The only way people whom are not US citizens can get benefits of food stamps its if they are immigrant workers with a temporary visa in the US. Illegals can not get benefits because they can be deported, they have no social security and no papers to proof they are temporary immigrant US workers. Illegals dont pay taxes and some immigrant workers do pay taxes under certain restrictions. The welfare does not approve any case unless at least one person in the household its working or receiving income from some source. If you say you dont have an income and have zero money coming in...you will be denied benefits. Why is this? because they know your lying...if you dont get anything then how do you survive...therefore by showing evidence of pay stubs and some sort of income coming in the household will actually say "hey, I work and pay taxes but my income its still low", yes most people do lie about their income and some dont...this dominican drug lord was getting benefits because he probably was given altered false identification to qualify for benefits...the guy is a gangsta and he has connections...the government its not too far from corruption and they feed from drug money as well. People think drugs are really controlled by authority...no...they are run by it in the underworld. People are so ignorant about this issues its shocking to me.
  • Have you seen a welfare application, lmao. Yes I have and they have a loophole that says migrant worker. If they check this box, nothing is required!! This is how our schools also have illegals who get free lunches listed as. They are no more migrant workers than a man in the moon. They manipulate and lie to receive free benefits, education and pity!!
  • Because they cannot. How are you going to apply for food stamps with no social security number, state ID, utility bills, etc.? In fact, most LEGAL aliens cannot get on food stamps or welfare. I am a US citizen. My husband is a permanent resident. We make $500 a month for a family of 4. He does not qualify for ANY assistance, because he is a foreigner. Pretty basic knowledge. Have you even SEEN a social services application? Impossible to even apply if you are a foreigner.
  • No where does it say if he has US citizen children. That is usually the way most illegals receive benefits. On behalf of their US citizen children. >> The US citizen children DO have social security numbers. The alien, legal or not, can get basic things like electricity and utilities in their name. Permanent residents (those with green cards) CAN apply for benefits once they have lived in the US for 5 years.
  • I hate illegals. Deport them or shoot them, it doesn't matter. Just get rid of them.
  • Please! I see them in the grocery store buying food all the time.
  • Why U Phoenix? Why not UC Berkeley, Harvard, Cornell, UMass, U Florida, U Texas, Berklee College of Music, Boston U, or the 1000's of other colleges that teach online but don't have TV commercials about it? Your local state college and local community college probably teach online too. What's really sad is that most of those I list above will cost you less than those 'as seen on TV' colleges too. It's not 1981 - in the 21st century colleges and universities teach online. It's not special or magic or even a big secret. Most employers do their training online these days too. It's just another method of delivery of education among many possibilities. Employers don't care so much about online vs classroom -- they care a lot about which college. Some colleges just don't have a very good reputation whether you attend there in the seat or online. Some others are mediocre and some are truly outstanding. Employers also don't care about the organizational structure of your university - they just don't. It could be non-profit, public, for-profit, ecclesiastic, etc... they just don't care. They care about 1) is the school regionally accredited 2) what's their reputation compared to other schools. Most people who tell you that the for-profit colleges are "bad" can't explain to you the difference between the different organizational structures - they're just repeating what they've heard from the traditionalists. Who, of course, would like for no new colleges to compete with them. US News and World Reports tells us that U. Phoenix isn't ranked at all. Their online college isn't ranked. Their classroom college isn't ranked. They are simply considered (by many people) to be the bottom of the barrel when it comes to regionally accredited colleges. Is there a better one? Roughly 4000 better ones in the US alone. Is there an easier one to get into? Not as long as you have a credit card and are breathing. (which is much of the controversy over the for-profits, they're too easy to get into.) Then again, your local community college (public, non-profit organization) is also open admission and lets in anyone - but they're ok. Want to see some real online education with a solid reputation? * Harvard University - http://www.extension.harvard.edu/Distanc...* UC Berkeley - http://extension.berkeley.edu/online/* Berklee College of Music - http://www.berkleemusic.com/* U Mass - http://www.umassonline.net/ * Boston University - http://www.bu.edu/online/ * University of Florida - http://www.distancelearning.ufl.edu/ * Cornell University - http://www.ecornell.com/ (continuing and professional education) [note: just because they teach online doesn't mean that they'll let just anyone in or that anyone that gets in will pass. These are real college courses with real academic expectations.] and, of course, how about the online courses at your local or state community college? They're probably cheap enough that you can pay for them with no scholarships or loans needed. Again, it's 2010. Everyone is online now.
  • I would advise against it. Those colleges are "for profit", meaning all they care about is your money. They are often not taken seriously by employers, and I've heard many horror stories of people being completely gouged by an online school only to end up with no better chance at a higher paying job than when they started. You should look into local community colleges. Many offer daycare at a low or free cost, and can work around your schedule as a parent. You can take classes at a slow and steady pace, some online, and have the opportunity to get financial aid and scholarships to cover the costs. I've known several people with families to take care of who have gone back to school and successfully gotten their degrees. It's definitely possible to do, you just have to figure out what your options are. Best of luck (:
  • First of all, let's sift through the incorrect information listed here. A long time ago, online schools were not taken seriously because they were a new concept. Now, not only are they taken seriously but many campus-based colleges and universities offer online classes. Some are part online and part campus, others are all online. You may want to check with your local community college or university to see what they offer. For-profit schools are more costly but the education is the just the same as any other online school. One thing you have to consider is that places like Phoenix cornered the market on online schooling. They are 100% online and since they have been doing it the longest, they are the best suited for the experience. A phone call puts everything you need right in front of you. Even if your local college offers online classes, it may not be completely online or if you have problems, you may be required to go to the campus. If this happens and you can't attend on campus, you are going to have to drop out or reduce your classes which may in turn cause you to lose your financial aid. Like I said, ten years ago online degrees were not taken seriously, but nowadays many people obtain online degrees. I received a bachelor's degree from Phoenix U two years ago. The degree made me eligible for a promotion, which I recieved just three months later. Recently I started new and I am supervising roughly 40 suboordinates. Both my current and former employer took my degree and my grades very seriously, so anyone who tells you that they are a joke or a scam is just plain wrong. I have also read online a bunch of problems that people had with their counselors or teachers. I had none of these problems in the four years I was in attendance. I believe you get out what you put in. If you aren't studying and you don't put in the effort, then of course you aren't going to have a good college experience! Online school is entirely self-motivated. No one is going to be there making you log in or looking in your face telling you to do your work. You are responsible for your own level of committment. The only thing that I would have changed is the amount of money I spent on tuition. I had plenty of grants and scholarships, and had I attended a different school I would not have had to take out loans at all, but at the time Phoenix was the only accredited online school. So do your shopping before making a decision.
  • A lot of employers don't like online degrees - or at least, not those offered by schools that are famous for being online, such as U of P. They also don't tend to like degrees given by for-profit schools like U of P, Devry, etc. - they prefer traditional, not-for-profit schools. Based on all that, and on your desire to get this degree to help re: employment, I'd instead have you look at the online degrees offered by reputable, traditional universities - and there are a lot of those. Examples include UMass Amherst, Northeastern U, Florida State, U Denver, Drexel U, Regis U, U Mass Lowell, Worcester Polytechnic, Southern New Hampshire U, Tiffin U, etc. In fact, look first at the community colleges and public unis in your home state. Some of those may offer online degrees now, and because you're in-state, you get the lower, in-state rate on tuition. Some of the reputable schools with online degrees even offer the accelerated schedules like U of P does. Southern NH U, for example - each class takes maybe 5-9 weeks, rather than the 13-16 required by a traditional college program. But because the class is shorter, you do more in less time. It's still 16 weeks worth of work! So you want to be aware of that, going in. But the trade off is that you may be able to finish the degree more quickly.
  • This Site Might Help You. RE: Do employers take on line colleges seriously? I've been laid off for awhile and i was thinking of going back to school. the only way i could do that is on line because of watching my kids. I was thinking of University of Phoenix. Or is there a better one?

  • Are Online Degrees Taken Seriously
  • Employers prefer on-campus degrees, especially for new hires, (though they may tolerate online degrees for promotion box-checking). Online students know about this preference — the best evidence being the great fear they have of being outed as online students. Often, online students want assurance that their transcript and sheepskin will not mention the dreaded word "online". Getting an online degree from University of Phoenix is a double humiliation.
  • 155
  • No way. Those schools are scams. Those schools are for profit which means that the people in charge only care for your money. Also the tuition is twice as much as in state schools and up to three times of community college. You think that they are going to give you scholarships? No the only thing that it will do to you is give you a 30 thousand dollar debt. Go to community college but never go to one of those career colleges.
  • When the religious fanatics took over the Republican party in the 1980s and slowly drove all their centrists or moderates out (Lincoln Chafee, Tom Ridge, Colin Powell being three prominent examples), I was nearly frantic trying to alert people (voters) to the dangers of the Reaganomics (pro-corporate interests; loss of social safety nets; upside-down or top-heavy trickle-on-down economics, massive deregulation, outsourcing of our jobs to Third World countries, huge deficits due to the ill-advised tax cuts for the wealthiest few that placed undue burden on an ever-shrinking middle-class---and then the collapse of our savings and loan industry). President Clinton came into office, leaving with a surplus, 2.2 million new jobs created, and a paid-down deficit (Flynt, 2004), all of which was undone by the GOP during their absolute-power (totalitarian) years from 2001 through to 2007, when they were in control of all three branches of government and spent like double-drunken sailors, outsourcing all of our jobs, destroying our middle-class and our manufacturing base, deregulating every greed-driven corporation in sight (which meant no oversight, no consumer or environmental protections, no valid safety inspections--BP, etc.). The result: fudged figures, derivatives betting, price-gouging on gas, illegal war in Iraq which borrowing from Communist China by the GOP funded, collapse of our credit and housing markets that began in 2004 (according to National Public Radio's "All Things Considered," keeping war costs off the books, and then the ultimate MELTDOWN of our entire FINANCIAL SYSTEM---all due to failed, corrupt, greed-driven Republican policies. We now have a president who is doing what Bill Clinton did to save us the LAST time Republicans caused our economy to slip into severe recession. President Obama has succeeded in his less than two years in office in REVERSING the failed supply-side ("trickle on down to the little people masses") and using the "from the ground up" DEMAND SIDE economic policies that saved us during the Clinton years. We are headed in a more positive direction both domestically and internationally. President Obama's strong push for a green energies technologies initiative has resulted in NEW manufacturing plants in states like Michigan, Ohio, Colorado, Florida, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, etc....plants that will restore our GOP-destroyed MANUFACTURING JOBS by making hybrid car batteries, wind-powered or solar-powered products, etc....and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has coordinated efforts with the White House to get our current trade deficits with China (and other nations) under control and to have these foreign markets OPEN more to earth-friendly imports. Don't be conned into believing that socialism is "bad" and capitalism is "good"---the United States has always functioned BEST when a yin-yang balance of the two is in place. Examples of socialism upon which the American people rely include our military, the VA medical system, the U.S. Post Office, mass or public transit, our highways and roadways, police and firefighters, national parks, public schools and colleges, Social Security, consumer protection provisions and agencies (i.e., OSHA, FDA, FAA, etc.), Medicare and Medicaid, and so on. Without socialism, we have now seen what happens thanks to the really bad leadership of the corporate-catering GOP: UNBRIDLED and BOTTOMLESS-PIT GREED and Bernie Madoff/Abramhoff CORRUPTION because of this GREED! On the other side of the coin, without the balance of rational-moderation capitalism, all socialism can cause STAGNATION. Our future in the hands of Democrats right now is on a very good path toward prosperity, rebuilt manufacturing base (check out Wixom, Michigan for an example), lowering of our deficit (paid down by 8% with the repayment of $181 billion from 14 of the 400 Bush-bailed-out welfare/TARP-funded banks after DEMOCRATS and President Obama put LIMITS on their multi-million-dollar-self-awarded salaries and bonuses unless and until they paid us taxpayers back in FULL and WITH INTEREST (the poor executives had to "make do" with $500,000 in an annual salary and only INVESTOR-APPROVED shares of preferred stock for bonus, so the 14 fatcats HURRIED to pay us back a few years EARLY, i.e., by last December). Keep an open mind and peek at the many many achievements on behalf of this nation and the American people at whitehouse.gov (click Issues) or monitor how the first half of the $787 "stimulus" (Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) has been applied in each of the 50 states to get our SHRIVELED economy up and running again.
  • specific, I genuinely do. via fact of President Obama we've prevented a significant melancholy interior the US. we are ultimately concentrated on Afghanistan, the place the Taliban has consistently been, no longer Iraq. Wall street has won returned its losses, and we ultimately have some style of well being care reform. those and quite a number of different different constructive issues have befell even with the Republican blockade. For the Republicans to have voted NO on each and every suggestion positioned forth by skill of the Democrats is irresponsible via fact they are no longer vote casting on the reward of the invoice, yet entirely looking in direction of their destiny electability. and due to the Republicans irresponsibility we now could be subjected to the "Tea occasion" and the likes of Christine O'Donnell, who's familiar with no longer something approximately our shape. Why are we paying the Republicans interior the abode and Senate, while they have performed NO artwork via fact Obama took workplace? they only take place and vote NO. And for that they are paid thousands and thousands of greenbacks. a minimum of the Democrats are attempting to earn their pay.
  • Socialism? We've had a welfare state for 75 years. So, we've always had some aspect of it. We're headed towards a crossroads of finally facing that mounting debt. Can't ignore the elephant in the room forever.
  • Socialism? No. Dictatorship? Yes. If the neo-cons spin their way into power, kiss American ideals goodbye.
  • Lol. No, but heck at least everyone would be poor. No celebrities getting paid millions for running around naked.
  • Yes, just as fast as the libbies can get us there. November is coming vote them out
  • want to get message through to all involved in std or kancer to tell all involved
  • I'm currently an 11th grader in high school. However, this is my first year in a very expensive private school (transferred from public). The only reason my parents transferred me to private school was because they felt I would have a better chance at getting into better colleges from here, rather than my local public school. The problem is, I just want to go to a state school (I don't really want to go to an expensive top tier private school). It's like a paradox, my parents are paying more now, just to pay more later (for a private college). Lastly, I just took my SATs and got a very good score. Also, my grades aren't too bad. Pretty much, as of right now I already have a good chance at getting into the state school. Should I just stop trying so hard from now till senior yr and just go to the state school after? My parents get mad every time I "aim too low" so I don't feel comfortable mentioning it to them too often.
  • My husband's parents did the exact same thing your parents are doing. We met at a major state university - so he didn't exactly follow the program. Does your private school offer AP courses? Take advantage of them to bank some free college credits before you even start college (depending on your interests/scores/ and both schools policies). Use this to show your parents how serious you are about college, and 'pick your battles' for going to the school you want to go to instead of lower their expectations and trigger the "aiming too low" accusation. Research the programs/fields you're interested in at the school you want to go to. If the state school has a strong program, your parents will probably be more willing to see you at the state school. And your private school background will be a bit more ammo getting you into your dream program. Not knowing where you live, and what schools you're thinking about, remember that there are plenty of state schools that are 'Public Ivy's - and are quite prestigious. Schools like the University of Michigan and U of Florida are quite selective and have world class programs. Maybe your desired school is on the list? Even if it doesn't, all schools have strong points that often beat out 'top tier' private schools. I've included links you can use to find info regarding the 'value' of tuition at both private and public schools. Also, if your parents aren't paying for everything outright during college, loans will be taken in both your parents and your own names - you can use that as a bargaining chip if they want to avoid saddling you with huge college debt. Just remember to remind your parents that you understand and appreciate that they want the best for your future. Let them know you're not selling yourself short - you're just not interested in overpaying for your achievements.
  • At a selective private college you will have a better chance of finding space in the classes you want to take, have a better chance of being taught by a tenured professor, rather than a graduate student instructor, and be able meet students from a higher social class whose friendship will be very helpful when you look for a job. If you really don't like the private school, you can transfer to a state school. If you let your grades fall, you may find yourself going to a community college. How will you deal with your parents if that happens?
  • It's no surprise that Bush would support McCain. Why hasn't McCain even mentioned Bush's name for the last four months? I guess it's an unlucky name. Hypocrisy seems to be the rightwings way. Rush Limbaugh bascially says off the drug users menawhile he's practically shooting up on the streets of Florida. Then there are the Republican anti gay gays. Now there are the Republicans who say that everything that is happening during Bush's time in office are not a result of Bush's management. I don't get it. I guess the fact that the US government is going to buys airforce planes from abroad is a result of the Democrats too. Just all Republican hypocrisy.
  • The economy was going well until the housing mess. And President Bush had nothing to do with the housing mess. It was Bill Clinton that allowed the government to enter the subrime business. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?...http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?..." President Bush Didn't Force People To Buy Homes, Then Why are people blaming him for economic problems.? Every economist knows the credit crunch caused by the housing problem is hurting the economy. The economy was going well until the housing problems started. Federal tax revenues was up. (Tax revenue growth is a good sign of how the economy is performing.) To SPMOSHER: Guess you don't know Greenspan said there is little that can be done to fix the mortgage problem. He said to leave the interest rates alone and try not to artificially boost home prices. (Changing interest rates is a double edge sword. It helps some problems but it creates inflation through a weaker dollar. And just recently, interest rates were dropped but that didn't stop interest rates for mortgages to increase this week.) To Buttercu..: Good points, but overbuilding caused the problem. Like Greenspan said, there is an over supply of homes. It was overbuilding caused home prices to fall in the south which caused a complex chain reaction that has spread globally. Even Germany is suffering now from decreasing real esate values. It was illegal labor that motivated homebuilders to build millions of new homes which resulted in "supply outstripping demand". Builders were making huge untaxed profits on each home they were building. Most new homes and condos selling for $500,000 cost less $100,000 to make just because they hired illegal immigrants. To Buddy: Also good points, but the Federal Reserve (not President Bush) determines when to issue loans to help ailing banks. Also, under the constitution, the federal government has no say in lending interest rates. The limit for interest rates is determine by states. (Banks often move their banking operations to the states that have no limits.) The Supreme Court has acknowledge that lending interest rates is a states rights issue. And for the U.S. government to take over bad loans only puts more pressure on ailing GSE's (Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac). That would put GSE's in greater risk of financial collapse, and it would go against badly needed GSE reform that was proposed several years ago. To Navymom: It was President Bush that reversed Bill Clinton's disasterous decision in 2002. But the damage was done. Bill Clinton basically told the industry subprime loans are a good thing. ""Freddie Mac will no longer invest in subprime mortgages with prepayment penalty terms that exceed three years, effective for all subprime mortgages originated on or after October 1, 2002."" http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?...
  • President Bush endorsed the Republican candidate for president, why is this a surprise to you? Did you expect him to endorse a Democrat? Other than the endorsment, Mr. McCain has nothing to do with Bush.
  • I think he was looking for a photo op...and nothing else! Unless of course you think cameras some how exchange the brains of those in the picture.
  • When I sold my house I also took a shot with the new happy owners in front of the house.
  • Sounds like the Dumbocraps in a losing cause, are trying to pick a fight with the Republicans.
  • McCain is now Bush's right hand man. More of the same!
  • You can bet your life on it that it will be "Bush! The Nightmare Part 2"
  • I think it's customary, nothing more. It certainly doesn't mean they're carbon copies of each other. They're not.
  • Sounds good to me!
