Can somebody make a time machine (besides Stewie Griffin on Family Guy) & we can select the date & time we want to go back to for a better life because right now with rising costs across the boards on everything from gas to food, etc.  and no salary increases to offset it this is not a good time for millions.

Borro loans average 15k to the 'mass affluent'?? If they are affluent, why are they needing to borrow 15k on average and put up there acquired material items as collateral?? Reads like some risky loans to me.

Hey First Opinion, dads take care of children too you know.  Or, maybe you don't know; but you should, because they certainly do.

Wish all these startups well. Hopefully, they cut into big businesses, go make

their IPOs (Initial Public Offers) get some monopoly to do a hostile takeover

and the investors will get richer! Everyone wins - everyone gets richer in their

401Ks and will be able to retire.

The problem with the dog collar GPS idea is dogs can get out of their collars, or if someone steals your dog, they can take off the collar. The app might alert you that the collar is off, but by then the dog will be long gone.

more evidence that people are only willing to spend money on three things, and if what you do doesn't fall into one of these categories, you will be accused of being too expensive no matter what it is that you do.


fashion, vanity and entertainment.


the high end hair care crap,

the cars people get are nothing more than fashion statements.


people will spend thousands on a TV that actually only cost just maybe a few hundred to produce.


wait till the next Iphone goes for sale, how many people who already cry and complain about how expensive things are and they can't afford someone trying to work and earn a living but will take time off from school, work or what ever it is they claim to be worth so much for just so they can be the first to brag to their idiot friends, family and neighbors they got the newest and latest.

but then as they cry and complain about the people willing to provide them with what they need being too expensive, they then wonder why they can get more for what little they actually do.


when people claim everything is too expensive, they need to take a long look in the mirror and think how expensive they are for everyone else, most people are far more expensive for others, than others are for them.

GOOD MORNING FROM NASSAU, BAHAMAS ! 

Opps- I thought this was about my upstarts in Volusia county, Fl. But the creation of small business has been the backbone of every recovery in our history- and just look at what these about have grown into ? Great successes ! 

But now, we're heading out to a couple of shark dives. We've taken some amazing pictures of these incredible animals so far and we'll be back next week. C-YA !

P.S.- Did I hear right that the house is suing the executive branch (WH) ? oh-boy !

Who will pay to close the borders?   How much?  A trillion to build and man?    Then listen to agriculture, chicken plants, construction tell us they can't get labor.

We need a machine that tells people that while the federal debt continues to rise, the budget deficit has been falling in significant amounts for the last six years in a row thanks to lower spending and higher taxes on the wealthy. Oh we have that already? Well then what channels do you watch?
