Budget Mobile. Another Free Phone.

December 8, 2014 1 comment

Here is a comment we thought deserved its own page.
Thanks Matt. That is what this blog is all about. Sharing things too help everyone get through tough times!

Hi Everyone. My name is Matt and I represent another company called Budget Mobile. We also offer a free cell phone, free minutes, and free texts every month to folks who qualify. In California, that means free unlimited talk and text every month! Most other states are limited to 250 minutes and texts each month. To learn more about California LifeLine, visit this link on our website: All other states we serve are listed on the front page of our website. Just click on your state’s name for more information.

Thanks Matt for letting us know of another option to get help in the form of a free phone.


The next time you owe someone, remember Derric Miller.

Derric Miller, a former friend of Kwami Kilpatrick who testified in one of the Kilpatrick trials that he had received kickbacks, was sentenced to pay almost a quarter million dollars in restitution to the IRS.

Here is the catch. After looking at his income, he was given 100 years to pay back the amount in full.

Lol, even if he is just 20 years old right now, he’d be 120 in his last year of payment! Really! He’s actually more like 40!

So just remember that the next time you end up owing the government. I bet we wouldn’t get a deal like that!

Another American Injustice!


P.S. Who was that judge?

Those little cartoons may cost you a bundle.

Those little cartoons may cost you a bundle.

Listen up. There is a new way besides face book and other internet socials that we are giving up to much information to those who want to take advantage of us.

You know those little carton figures that people buy and stick on the rear windows of their cars that depict all the members of their family including their pets.

The figures usually are characters that are dressed in some particular way or might have a certain expression or be a certain size and they usually represent not only who is in your family but what they like to do as well.

They are basically a story of what your family is doing.

I personally like to see the little figures and what each one is wearing or doing. It’s something to do while waiting for traffic to move.

But, now criminals also are taking notice of these stickers and they are learning lots of information about you. Information that may unfortunately lead to a car jacking, you being robbed or a break in at your home.

They learn a lot of information that they no longer have to guess at and stuff that helps them determine what is going on either with your car or your home.

Pictures of kids in sports or cheerleading tell them you will be at many practices and games. Pictures of a man in a suit or a uniform tell them that dad might not be home a lot either. Pictures of little dogs, cats or hamsters tell them you don’t have a bid dog that likes to bit criminals. Depending on the time and day they can usually tell who is using that vehicle, for what purpose and probably guess where it’s going next.

Those little figures are actually cool and I like them, but unfortunately its time to pull them off thanks to some criminals that want to use them to their advantage.

It’s a shame. I know, we could all buy little guns to put in each figures hands! That might work!


Fast food wants your money!

Fast food wants your money!

We as hard working men and women deserve a good lunch in the mid part of our day, to rejuvenate the brain cells and muscles and get us through to quitting time.

Did you notice that I said quitting time! If you didn’t and you don’t consider yourself what I call a working stiff just trying to make a living than you probably do not need to read any farther.

But in the real world the rest of us need to watch the fast food market as they ramp up their push to bad mouth our home made lunches by using negative feelings on us!

You’ve all seen the commercials that have the main group comparing their lunch from somewhere, discussing the value, taste, size, and anything else they can think of. Then they ask their coworker who is sitting alone, what they are eating, and that is where they make you feel like an outcast. Like your lunch is not as good as theirs is.

DON’T FALL FOR THIS TYPE OF ADVERTISING! It’s really not a very reputable way to get someone to try their products in the first place, so don’t fall for it.

There is nothing wrong with bringing your own lunch and saving a ton of money over those who eat out daily.

And some of the food that people do bring in those home made lunches, a lot of times not only tops fast food in taste, but most certainly will top fast food in value, darn near every time. They can’t compete price wise with a home made meal, no how, no way, and they know it.

Just be creative, use thermoses, hot and cold carry jars, along with plenty of reusable plastic bowls and containers and by all means, be creative!

Search the Web for carry lunch ideas, along with ideas of cooking lunch depending on your job.
By all means use anything that your place of employment provides you for lunches, like microwaves, tables, plastic dinnerware, refrigerators, etc. Also, be careful never to contaminate your food, but use tools of the trade as well if you can. Ovens, torches, boilers heaters, chillers, coolers and a.c. units can all be utilized to warm or cool a tasty item so it’s ready at lunch time.

Now do yourself a favor, if you ever afford to buy something that a coworker says they wish they could afford, tell them you could afford it because of the money you saved by bringing your lunch!

Oh just a couple more things, don’t forget the condiments and never forget to pack the silverware! You’d look kinda silly drinking your home made stew or eating chocolate pudding with your finger!

The key to landing a job.

The key to landing a job is that you really have to want it.

If you half heartily go into an interview not really happy with where you are applying or with an attitude that expresses you are not really concerned if they don’t call you, than you can kiss that job goodbye. You may as well not have applied.

The way to land any job even if it isn’t the exact job you want, is to go into the interview with a positive attitude and a real expectation that you are already talking to someone who works where you will be working as soon as they hire you.

Yep, you have to think positive, believe that you are the one they will be calling. Express how the job interests and excites you and that you can’t wait to jump in and get going on your first day. Speaking of which, you must be prepared to stay when you answer the question of when can you start with an enthusiastic how about right now!

You see, its your enthusiasm and you qualifications that shine through to someone conducting an interview. Your answers and actions will stand out above the rest of the applicants and they will see you as a motivated team player who is ready to work.

That’s how you get almost any position you apply for. Now if someone comes across to them as being just a little more motivated or qualified than you, than you might lose that one by just a little but the practice you gain will certainly help you during your next interview.

Now if you are the type that has a hard time talking to new people, just try this.

Pretend that the interviewer is a great old friend that you haven’t seen in years and you are at lunch talking about you and your work, That should help you get over any bad case of nerves you could get.

So now get out there and land that position you always wanted. It’s not only easy, but now you know how!

Kids are losing weight

Kids are losing weight

They say that children in America are doing great at losing weight. Three cheers for the kids and the health administrators pushing it, right?

Do you think the fact that more children in America are going to bed hungry than ever before, may have something to do with it?

It is a fact. More and more middle class American families are falling off the financial cliff, now more than ever before and many of these families need help but don’t know where to get it, or they are too proud to ask for it.

Let those fame seeking health administrators save their weight studies for times of prosperity, not times when the food banks are giving out record numbers of food.

There are many people trying to take credit for the weight loss. Many because they played a role in changing something in school meals.

Anyone who is blind enough to think they deserve credit for the weight loss of our children is hunting for glory at a time of dispare to many.

Thats the people we have running our health care systems in this country. Once again, similar to the lawmakers, a misguided group of individuals each looking to leave their own mark on society.

What a shame!

Please donate to your local food banks if you can afford it. They need the help now more than ever.

And to those out there worrying about our obese society at a difficult time like this, start worrying about solving the real problems that plague Americans or just go home and worry about when you are going to buy your next Cadillac, while people are out here starving!

We learned in sixth grade not to conduct research studies during abnormal times because the results won’t be accurate. You fame seekers must have been absent that day!
