Been there, done that in 2000 with the whole internet mess...still singing the same song because I was prepared financially...and it wasnt easy.

So you have no thoughts on what I propose as being a huge cause of the problem and how to avoid it. You would rather just tell me that Im being opportunist for my personal situation?

Net-net, it does not seem that high tax rates and social benefits is a necessarily bad


I cant agree with trying to use my personal pay check as a charity fund for everyone...I do my fair share of donating money and/or other things...I dont need the government doing it on my behalf with my money.

I will however tell you that in my opinion the biggest problem is that we put almost zero effort into teaching kids in school anything in terms of personal and basic finance. Half the problems that people face when it comes to debt, being under or not at all insured, saving money, and responsible spending could all be addressed in the public school system...but instead we do nothing and continue to wonder why people waste money, have huge personal debt, and dont know how to make even the most basic investment decisions so that they can secure their own financial well being down the road instead of depending on some government hand out that they have zero control over.

When I was in HS I had the option of exactly ONE class like this. It was taught by a very smart guy who made the class fun and interesting, and the class had a big impact on my approach to how I take care of my personal finances. Imagine if we had a program where from K-12 you had even just one class a year...just one...imagine how much better off people would be regardless of their salary, rising interest rates and gas prices, and being able to do some thinking before getting into a mortgage that they cant afford. Education and self-empowerment is the answer...not a hand out.

Absolutely not, I change my mind based on who the candidate is. For McCain to say it, it instantly becomes acceptable.

I feel the need to say it again, I dislike McCain ALMOST as much as I dislike Obama.

I dont "get talking points" from anywhere...especially not Fox. My point here is that nationalized health care and trying to force big companies to "pay back" the community are socialist ideas. Does that mean Obama = Socialist? No? Does that mean that his ideas lean too far towards Socialist ideas for my taste? Yes.

I think that there are too many instances where things are taken in black and white terms and if someone is a Republican/Democrat/Socialist...or whatever label you want to use, then there is no possible way they could be anything else. For example...the common thought process lately that all republicans = GWB and therefore = bad....all because of a label for what the party supposedly stands for.

So when I say Obama's policies are "socialist enough for me" I am not saying he is 100% socialist, but I am saying that the ideas he has presented so far lean too far towards that ideology for me to be comfortable with.

Ok, so let me try this without personal attacks and being totally 100% serious in my line of questioning.

Fingerprints from my perspective are similar to other "personal information" that I want to protect at all costs such as my SSN. Besides the fact that I just find it an invasion of privacy, dont you have any concern at all that either government or private industry will misuse or mishandle the data that they have collected? I mean, how frequently do you read about lost, stolen, or illegally accessed files of personal info...I'd prefer not to add my fingerprints to that scenario.

Also, I find it hard to buy that fingerprints are the way to stop financial crimes. Arent most of these crimes able to be tracked or uncovered through means like phone records, email chains, account numbers and transfers, and IP addresses? I cant see fingerprinting doing much at all to protect anyone.


No response from anyone on this? I'd like to know why people would be in support of something like this from their candidate based on the questions I posed here.

Wow, you really nailed me.

You respond to one part of my post and don't realize the hypocrisy of your own post. Par for the course. Keep fighting for Ron Paul brother! I think he's really got a chance this year!


Yep...I think its OK to compare some of Obama's supporters to the followers of David Koresh. People cant get past the "charisma" and really understand what the man stands for.

And for the record, you and others are the ones who keep bringing up a certain candidate. Im not foolish enough to think he is going to win anything, but I am hopeful enough to think that some of his ideas and thoughts might rub off on the general public and some other candidates.

Curse/names? Which word was that - "idiot"? Ok, because i thought it was you who compared to Obama to David Koresh - or was that someone else with the very descriptive moniker of "anonymous"? Do you find it acceptable to refer to a potential president as the leader of a doomsday cult? Right, I've read a ton of your posts and you like to shade the facts so they suit your needs. Got it. But lets respond to the rest of your post shall we?

Un-American, now please tell me, what does that mean? Does that mean approving warrantless wiretaps of Americans? Or does that mean water boarding them?

There happens to be a ton of rampant fraud in the mortgage industry, so what exactly is your objection to having a database of fingerprints for people who work in that industry? What is unamerican about protecting people who want to achieve the...what's that phrase.... oh yes, the "American Dream"?

The reason you're an "idiot" (which apparently is a curse word, i wasn't aware) is because you post links to the conservative Heritage Foundation as if it were a respectable publication that we ought to listen to. It's a blog post from a writer on that website and it doesn't list any of the other 18 people on that bipartisan committee who supported the measure. Who were the 2 people who voted AGAINST the measure?

Sorry if you don't like being challenged but when you post ad hominem attacks on people with no factual backing, someone needs to take issue with that.

So sorry that offends you. Please accept my most humble apology!

This is a bi-partisan committee (1/2 dem, 1/2 repub, if you don't know what that means) that voted 19-2 to pass a measure that fingerprints people who work in the mortgage origination industry. This is already present in any number of industries such as the securities industry.

Okay, so do bad guys break into just about any cars? Or do they choose more expensive cars? I drive a Honda civic, and I just don't see how anyone can benefit from breaking into my car. Should I still be concerned? Or unless I have a more expensive car, I won't have to worry about it? Since it's an old and cheap car, I'm not afraid of the cost to fix it. But I just hate to have the inconvenience.

But removing a fuse sounds like a great idea. Does anyone else do that?

Atsushi


Just look around the neighborhood and take note of what cars are the most "modified" etc. I see an awful LOT of Honda Civics. They are A-Cheap, B-Easy to get parts, C-easy to "ghetto mod"


The "ghetto-ness" (if thats a word) has nothing to do with it. Also among the other most frequently stolen youwill find the Accord, and Camry because so many are on the road that there is a market for parts.

But again, this thread is more about being broken into and not stolen...so I dont think the car itself has much to do with it. Personally I put a tint on my windows for this and a few other reasons, I figure if its hard to see in, they are less likely to smash a window and want to come up empty handed, plus it helps if I happen to forget that I've left something in the car. But be forewarned windown tinting in NJ is not 100% legal, there are some limits.

My heart says go with Obama, my mind says go with McCain.

Not that it matters - Obama will take NJ, anyway.


I would say old vs. young only applies to some also...I know plenty of "younger" voters who really dislike Obama and what he stands for.

I am so fed up with both McCain and Obama that I couldnt vote for either and feel good about it.

I never said McCain had a better plan, however his health care plan is better, which impacts the economy.

When it comes to the economy its a battle of who is less worse...and Obama is far from winning that one.

Obama and the Dems want to nationalize hurricane and disaster insurance, kill the dividend and capital gains tax breaks, levy a "windfall profits tax" on the oil companies, and nationalize health care. That doesnt sound like anything that makes financial sence to me.

McCain is just kind of clueless, but Im keeping my fingers crossed that he will have a good advisor. Either way though I cant justify voting for either candidate.

Yeah, because the job of President/Commander-in-chief is the same thing as that of a Senator. Riiiiiiight.

And yes, get your facts right. I'm not a huge fan of his, but Lautenberg is not 91 years old, nor is he the one whose finger is on the button.

Plenty of Senators, for good or for ill, have served well past Lautenberg's age. By contrast, John McCain, if elected, would be the oldest person to ever be elected to the presidency.


My bad...91 by the end of his term, 84 now...hardly a difference.

The man is not a viable public servant.

Anyone know where they are coming from, who is using them, what they are used for? I saw one again this morning on second street.

Just wondering?


Not sure why they are being left around, but you should call the store and talk to the manager. Not only are those carts expensive to replace, but they also represent a huge insurance liability if a car or the light rail hits them and/or someone is injured.

Most stores are usually very concerned about their carts being left around like this because of the possible financial issues.
