And is it a mystery why whites are leaving Broward.It could be the economy here.Oops, the Sun doesn't accept comments on that story. But the shooting death of an old white guy, by another old white guy, in a road rage inceident, at a post office the other day could be because of the costs of living here. oops again. No comments allowed there either.
RighT!! Isn't it funny how all the comments on that story were claiming it was a hispanic or black--and it turned out to be a WHITE DUDE!! And guess what-- the Customs agent was on duty WITH HIS DAUGHTER IN THE CAR!?!?!

Tell me that isn't a typical slacker LEO using our tax dollars to run his personal errands!!

Thanks Bush for fooking up the economy for your stinking oil... my business went down the drain due to medicare cuts (DRE cutbacks) and now my family has left me. MY LIFE IS RUINED!!!!!
Oil went from $64 to $150 a barrel from 2006 to when the Dems took over Congress to last month. oil is coming down with bush and the Repubs demanding the right to drill. Nancy Pelosi is the wealthiest member in the House and is worth around $50 million to 120 million. She is blocking any drilling because she is a stooge for the Saudis.

Again, another pea-brain. People lose their jobs, meatball! Have you tried to find a job in this economy????? It's the WORST I have ever seen in my entire life (58 years old).
There's jobs out there-- if you can't get a job its because you're not adjusting your standards for the times. I was flying high at $150k per year during the internet boom-- then I dropped as low as $65k in the dot-com bust-- just to make ends meet. I've slowly and gradually worked my self back up-- but never spent more than I had.

And your previous post about late fees, interest, etc? None of that would have happened had you spent ONLY what you had instead of relying on credit.

Which is the greater problem with America-- everything is on credit, even our gov't-- and now, now it is time to pay up!

I guess you never saved for a rainy day. maybe you spent to much time down at the Hard Rock Casino. Obama will cut your social security and other benefits and send it to Africa and for reparaations.

You're vastly mistaken. What makes you think your vision of reality IS reality? I'll tell you what drove me to Chapter 13. INTEREST CHARGES, LATE CHARGES, OVERLIMIT CHARGES, BANK FEES, etc. Once you fall a little behind, FORGET it! Credit card companies, etc. will sell your debt to a collection agency who will garnishee ones paycheck and take ALL your money with BOGUS fees & interest payments. Oh, I don't drive an expensive car, don't have an expensive car, as well.
So if you were living within your means, why do you have interest expenses? Hopefully you will learn that if you can't pay cash, you can't afford it. Yes, I practice what I preach. I may not have a lot, but I also have no debt.

I just wanted to say that it is very difficult to find a job right now. Adjust your standards or not, change careers or not, go to college or not, it is a tough time to find a job.
