Welcome to reality. What has happened, to many people, not enough work. People who can work don't even if it's only 7.15 an hour. Helps lower unemployment. The way things are going we all will be homeless in the near future. Please bring troops home, those countries will always be at war.

No surprise. Most Americans learned financial responsibility from their government. If the people voted for leadership instead voting for who will give them the most out of the treasury, we wouldn't be where we are today.

This is the first time I had ever applied for a loan. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the staff that answered any of my questions to the application process. Once this had all been completed the money was transferred quickly into my account. I will definitely be recommending 911PDAY .COM ( ) too my friends and family.
