Do you like Google?

December 14, 2015 Leave a comment

With Google watching our every move, no one any longer has the privacy that they expect, at the times they should.

Forget the time old worry that people used to have, about the government implanting microchips in everyone so we all are numbered and tracked.

The government has outsmarted us. We all have a number, voluntarily and we are all tracked by satellite wherever we go,  all thanks to our New government agency, Google!

Smart phones are that chip that we all carry with us voluntarily. Hell, we not only gladly pay for them, but we even pay monthly fees for their daily use and the upkeep of the systems they use.

If that isn’t one of the best take offs of the old proverbial Trojan Horse, than I don’t know what is.

We also buy and get apps for them and blindly click accept to their user terms, without reading the rights they want us to give them.

Those rights you give to Google or the apps owner, include most anything you could imagine that would not only tell someone all about your life and what you are doing,  but also let them know everywhere you go and anywhere you have been!

So stop worrying about implanted chips, because you already have a pocket or a purse full of them, along with a phone number to go with them, and Google and our government gladly thank you for your gullibility! Suckers!





T’s UP to Mark Levin and Down to Sean Hannity

Thumbs Up, Mark Levin is an American guy with an agenda of clearing out and bringing light to the corrupt B.S. that takes place in this great country daily. He is the guy who is on the line for the regular American Citizen and not trying to sell a bunch of crap to get rich.

Oh sure he has a book to sell or maybe a few of them, I’m not sure. But one thing is different from the way Sean Hannity does it, he actually cares about what is going on in America and doesn’t give a rats ass if he walks away with a dime while doing it.

In my further oppinion, Sean Hannity on the other hand is one of those guys who is charging for Sign-Up on his site and selling what he can to line his wallet. He says he cares about America but when you go to his site to see what his spiel is all about they want you to register and pay $5.95 a month before you can hear any of his archived radio broadcasts.

Now either he is making millions from people wanting to hear his shows for $5.95 a month or he is just set on trying to make a buck. I doubt it’s millions so he would probably do better to drop the $5.95 charge per month and to make his material free. Then I may want to buy his book. NOT. By charging, he’s got as much of a chance to get rich as old Uncle Jed did while hunting for food. It isn’t likely to happen!

So listen up to Mark Levin, because he is the guy who is doing it for us for FREE and trying to make America a better place for all and for generations to come!

VISIT THE MARK LEVIN SHOW NOW! Check out his archived radio shows and his Web Site for FREE and see what he is all about!


Warning: The Loan Sharks are Coming!

February 13, 2010 Leave a comment

Hurry, Get Out Of The Credit Pool!! Here come the Sharks.

Loan sharks are people who loan money at extremely high interest rates. They are usually unscrupulous individuals who loan money to needy individuals and expect usually 25% to 50% interest or more.

You must pay it all back, including the interest by a certain date or the interest increases. Failure to repay the debt usually results in property damage or physical harm to you or one of your loved ones.

Well a bank called the First Premier Bank has stepped into the class of being a loan shark. Led by Miles Beacom, CEO of Premier Bankcard and a South Dakota credit card marketer, the bank has decided to offer credit cards to high risk individuals with a $300 credit limit.

They are offering an extremely high interest rate of 59.9 to 79.9 percent annual percentage rate (APR) on these cards.

People, the highest any bank has charged any high risk individuals, is around 25%. They are charging more than three times that rate.

If you were to charge just $100 on the card you would then owe them $80 dollars on top of the hundred you charged and for each hundred that you charge. That is almost double the money you charge. That is more than most unscrupulous loan sharks would charge you and the banks are supposed to be licensed to do a fair business in this country.


Where the hell are all the citizen or consumer watchdog groups or consumer protection agencies in this country when we need them? What about the government stepping in to squash this unfair business dealing. This isn’t right America!

The sad part is that they have sent the offers around to people who are bad at managing credit and probably don’t understand what the term amounts actually mean to them and they said that the return from the offer was almost double over the return they get from their lower interest offers to less risky customers.

I’d say they are definitely sharks taking advantage of a group of consumers, who are definitely ill advised as to whether to accept an offer like that or not.

You know, things are really getting out of hand in the banking world and I sure hope some organization can stop these sharks from feeding on more of the poor people they are targeting with their get rich scheme, that is intended to make high rates like this look normal to everyone, so that more banks can jump their rates to the moon just like they did.

There has to be some kind of consumer law against a business doing something like this to the hard working people in America.  There has to be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, or God help us because the next depression will definitely end up being a recession! (That is if we don’t pull out of this one first.)

If your credit isn’t that good, you are better off getting a secured credit card and using that to build up your credit rating.

I don’t know if anyone else has experienced this lately, but it seems as if construction zones at least in Wayne County Michigan are being left up well after the construction is finished.

So do you think it is fair to get a speeding ticket if the signs remain up, even thought the barrels are now moved way off the road, the lights are no longer blinking, no one has worked at the site for months and only a couple pieces of rusting equipment remain as eyesores a safe distance from the road.

I bet that this is being used as a new form of revenue for the cities and counties that are issuing the tickets. Maybe the county doesn’t have the manpower to remove them, but they had the manpower to put them up when they wanted, didn’t they.

Sounds like a new style of money-making machine for the hard times many cities are experiencing during this recession. They need more money to balance their budgets and that’s how they are getting some extra funds.

They surely had the manpower to put up the 10 or 12 signs marking the construction and I bet they are easier to take down. So why do they still remain. No workers for almost two months and tickets are still being written.

I think that a good lawyer could fight those tickets and get them all thrown out, because in order to have a construction zone,  it seems there should have to be construction that is at least taking place and with legitimate intervals between construction phases, not months. A one month maximum stoppage of work should be the legal time frame for having to remove them or the counties should be ticketed by the state or federal government for Impeding Traffic!

When the road crews do this, they do not realize it but they actually create much more of a hazard for everyone, including their own families as well. Many of the motorists who decide to disobey the construction speed limit, get angry when they come up on someone who is and they start to tail gait you, almost pushing you and then decide to pass you unsafely, while flipping you their I.Q. level. If you have obeyed the law then you definitely have experienced this more than once in a vacant construction zone.

Someday, some innocent person or people are going to get killed by one of those jug-heads during one of these construction sleep overs and then the highway department will have to face the music for involuntarily injuring or killing a motorist!

Yet this continues to go on regularly. Maybe they have imposed a new law that allows for tickets anywhere construction has taken place. That must be it.

So watch your speed in those dead and deadly construction zones, or you might not notice who is getting ready to watch you open your purse or wallet. And don’t argue with the police officer about it, that may get you a bigger fine, if not thrown in jail, even if it is the highway department that they should be ticketing, not you.


Money Scams. Got Change for a Twenty?

September 17, 2009 Leave a comment

As old as the hills but coming back with vengeance, is the old quick change routine to make a fast buck.

These guys who practice these scams are nothing more than perfectionists at a lost art of scamming people out of money.

What they do is put something up on the counter and pay for it. Then they start this long process of getting change for a bigger bill and in the process they try to screw up the cashier to the point of giving them more than they deserve to get.

Times are getting tough for this scam to come back, so look out if someone asks you if you can break a twenty.


This video sorta reminded me of the money scam, but only with math and not bills.

Good or Bad, Find out what others say about it.

No matter what company or product it is that you are wondering about, check out the Ripoff Report.

The Ripoff Report is a site that many people use to vent their frustrations or problems they have had with a company or what they sell. It has thousands of reports to view.

The posts about the companies or items are in the words of the user, so that makes it very helpful to tell just what the person thought.

It’s a very popular site and I have used it to search many different companies that have offered jobs, only to find out that someone else had already been offered the job before me and got ripped off by them.

So any time you are in doubt to whether or not something is bogus, just click the following link below to find out just what others have already found out .


Watch your lottery tickets!

More and more people have heard of this and if it’s true you better watch out.

What’s happening is a scam by the sales clerks who are handed a lottery ticket and then asked to check to see if it is a winner.

What is going around, is that the clerk checks the ticket and throws it in the garbage while telling you it was not a winner, when in fact it actually is a winner. Then after you leave they turn it in and collect your winnings.

Do not do this. Simply ask for a printout of the winning numbers for that day, then take them home and see if you won. If you are unable to do this for yourself, then only have a close trusted friend or family member check or buy your tickets for you.

Remember you can get the winning numbers in all these places so you can check them for yourself if you are able.

  1. The TV. News. Usually that night or the next morning.
  2. The Newspapers. Usually the next day.
  3. The News Radio stations. Usually that night or the next day, once an hour.
  4. The Internet Lottery sites. Couple hours after a draw time, most have archives.
  5. Printed out from any lottery retailer. From the draw time, with archives.
  6. Your close friend or family members can get them for you.

So have fun and good luck . If you hit, I will ride shotgun when you go to collect.
