Homeowner Susie Salazar Loses Insurance Policy Over Pit Bull

Mar 24th 2013 10:16AM Insurance company's can be so paranoid they actualy cheat themselves. Here are some reasons I've been canceled or refuse to renew policy. When I was 26 years old my grandmother died. I inherited her home = they canceled claiming I was too young to own a home. There had never been any claim what so ever. ....My auto company I had been with for bout 9 years refused to renew my policy. Their reason = At 31 years old I had never had a claim and they thought the odds were I was due for one and it would be substantial. Note: I only carry liabilty and I only had one tiket for a tail light out 12 prior. Some years back Home owners sent letter of cancelation. Letter said due to wild animals roaming at large. Lions, and tigers, and bears, OH MY. ???? Up on investigation I discovered it was my 7 chikens were not penned. I live on a acerage they had never been penned in 34 years.

1 in 4 Spend More Than Half of Income on Housing, Study Says

Mar 7th 2012 9:46AM For those who rent, let me explain why you spend so much for rent and where that money goes to. The landlord probably is not getting rich. The first and largest portion goes to the mortgage. Yes most rental properties have a mortgage of some kind.Next comes property tax. As a income property they call it, they pay pretty high tax scale with no exeptions. And then there's Insurance. After those any repairs a landlord can afford requires sales tax on materials. Rental inspections have fees. And at the end of the year, if the landlord made any money, he pays income tax on the profit. Now if he decides to quit the investment, and makes anything on the sale of the home, he will pay capitol gains tax on the amount he made. So who really made money???

11 Outrageous Taxes

Feb 18th 2011 11:02PM Ummmm. I think I was in about 3rd grade when My school started teaching about why our country became independent from England. Wasn't it something to do with the outragouse taxing England was bestowing upon us. Don't I remember something about a Boston Tea Party. Something to do with throwing a bunch of Tea in the ocean in protest to a tax on tea. Don't I remember something in the constitution about Taxation with out Representaion. Now I know some would say we are represented. Maybe our constitution needs to read reasonable representation.

The Top 10 Things Couples Argue About, According to For-Real Research

Jan 30th 2011 12:35AM Oh and by the way ladies, I don't leave the toilet seat up. I close both the seat and the lid. Been a habit for 30 years now since my kids were small. So they didn't drop nothing in it. But I did once hear an interesting senario on this complaint. "We now live in a world of equal rights. We guys put the seat up, you gals quit complaining, you have the right to put it back down.

The Top 10 Things Couples Argue About, According to For-Real Research

Jan 30th 2011 12:21AM Wow. I read thier list. Married for 21 years the first time at 20 years old and she was younger. She met a new guy. And now living with the second gal for near 10 years now. Never once can I remember aruging over any of the things on thier list. I don't even control the T-V remote. She does in both of the relationships. I'd have to wonder in what world does this writer live in.

Would You Choose Your Pet Over Your Partner?

Jan 27th 2011 10:27AM I been raising animals all my life. And I have yet to fully understand some peoples logic. Both cats and dogs are animals. As is chickens. hogs, and cattle.Do you also believe a cow has the capability to love you??? The cow comes to you because he has associated you with feeding. He'll also lie down with you if he associates you with warmth. Some say a pet doesn't stray, but my expierance is if you let the pet outside, it does stray. They often return to feed. Neglect to feed the cat or dog for awhile and it won't return. The same as your husband or wife also won't return if they feel they have been neglected long enough. Pets have very few expectations of you. A spouse has more expectations. It would appear to me that someone who would choose a pet instead of a spouse simply doesn't want to put out the effort to have a successful relationship with a spouse. Maybe it's the pet lover with that attitude who would not make the best spouse.

SmartMoney: 10 Things Facebook Won't Say

Jan 13th 2011 9:32AM I use Facebook some. Pretty much everyday. It alows me to see whats up with my kids and grandkids.Some of them live far away. And through the day, they and I are all busiy with life, work and kids. But folks have a little common sense. Anything on the internet is vulnerable. Facebook, just like this comment section is public.Don't say anything you wouldn't stand on the court house steps and yell out to the public. The same as using your credit card online. The bank say's our sight is perfectly secure. My response is yea, but my computer might not be. Can anybody remember wells fargo's anoucement bout having account numbers stolen. Or any of the several others. It's the internet folks. It's public news.

W. Virginia Bill Would Yank Your Driver's License if Your Kid Misses Too Much School

Jan 11th 2011 8:16AM Ok I was a rotten kid. Now I'm 50, my kids are raised. I tried to be a better parent than I was a kid. Truth is dad wasn't around and at 15 or 16 mom had little control over me. She went to work, I was bigger than her and I just did as I pleased. Including school. As a minor the law was a joke to me. What were they going to do. Nothing I cared about. So your telling me my mom was to loose her liscense and as a result probably her job and soon after our home because I was a dumb and irresponsible 15 year old. What about my younger brothers wellfare now that there's no income and the home is being forclosed on?????

Home Heating: Stop Making These 10 Mistakes!

Jan 10th 2011 2:22AM Hey I'm game for about any suggestions,but I've tried most I can think of and they all cost. Got a wood burner, now the insurance company charges me outragouse cause of posibility of fire. No cost savings there. Used kerosean. Yes it does give of carbon dioxide. They all do. Has to exhaust somewhere. Please folks, don't go to bed leaving them on. Chance of fire and carbon dioxide. People die every year of it. Save on the heat company, spend the differance on kerosean. Around $5.00 per gallon here this year. Then there's electric. I've heard electric is the highest cost form of heat. Save on gas, spend on electric. Best I know of is insulate. But do it yourself cause a company gets big money to hire it done. Plastic on windows cost as much for the kits as you'll save unless you can find some super cheap plastic. I'm game for any ideas you folks can offer. E-mail me.

Peer-to-Peer Rentals--Own Less Stuff, Make Cash With What You Do Own

Jan 10th 2011 1:42AM Maybe it's just me, but I wouldn't dream of renting out my things. I got some pretty expensive equipment, [ Back hoe, tow trks., Bob cat, and such] People have asked many times to borrow them or rent them. The answer is always the same. NO. I'm also a landlord and have rental house's, so I'm pretty expieranced at how other people take care of my things. Or thier expectations of how my things should work and prform. And as already mentioned, the liabilty, the up keep, and the theft. Especialy something as delicate as an electronic devise. Sounds like trouble to me. And as before, the answer would be no, not for me.
