[quote]Never use a debit card online[/quote]
Or anywhere else to buy anything ever.
The only safe and limited use for a debit card is to get cash from an ATM located INSIDE the physical premises of a bank. Not the drive up ATM outside your local branch, not your bank's ATM or another nationa...

Mark Steyn had some good ones. "After America" I think was the one I read recently. It will leave you scared and is a sober picture of how broke we are historically, with lots of economic data behind its conclusions.
Representative Paul Ryan had very good videos on YouTube about our current an...

Be sure to include in your pro forma the cost of the inevitable uncovered auto liability claim and your subsequent bankruptcy when you get into an accident.
Your auto insurer will rightfully void your insurance and deny all coverage for operating a personal vehicle as a taxi/livery service. Yo...

Disability coverage, to replace your income if you cannot work.
Why not just get a mortgage and buy the place now if you like it / if it's a good deal?
There are too many variables over too long a horizon the way the seller is structuring the deal. Good luck predicting interest rates in 5 yea...

When you're not there to deal with the water heater with the busted drain pan in the attic that floods your entire house, then sits untouched for 3 months growing mold, or the rodents that you don't see when you're not there eat through your wires and your house burns down, tell your insurer you wer...

It's already here, Loyola University laid off 1/3 of their staff in late 2013, after their freshmen class size dropped 30%. (I'm not sure why they didn't plan for layoffs immediately in May when everyone sent in deposits.)

Add a Roth 401k to your plan ($17,500 salary deferral plus $34,500 in employer match) as your primary vehicle for your small business income and end your ongoing partnership with the feds. Plus you can still contribute to a Roth IRA independent of any 401k plan...

didn't Swilling win the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1991... maybe 1992?

Tracking down the contractor is not really an option, as the contractor never responded to my dispute in 2007, filed this bogus claim instead, then sold the debt to a law firm for collections, who dropped pursuing the sum in 2010.
The case history shows they tried to serve the petition at my pare...

I never received service of process and the court clerk gave me the history of the file in the small claims system. She told me any lawyer would be able to look at the history of the file and would know how to vacate it, but she couldn't give me further legal advice as an employee of the court.

I'm about to begin the process of refinancing a rental condo I bought & renovated in 2006. I just discovered an outstanding but expired judgment from a contractor who did some of the renovation work, filed in 2007. I never got notice/service of the claim and the judgement was entered by default.

My wife and I own a house near the playground (Old Metairie townhomes, behind Hurwitz Mintz) and recently refinanced, and we're also building in the Maple Ridge neighborhood one light down.
Wife's family are homebuilders, my family runs the largest locally owned savings & loan in Louisiana.

[quote] what you can legally charge for an early termination[/quote]
In most leases, the tenant is responsible for the remaining balance of the lease term, in this case 22 months of rent. It would be foolish for a landlord to negotiate away what is a pretty standard lease provision from a boiler...
