The statement of someone that doesn't understand how to leverage credit.
If I can make 1-1.5% on all purchases on a CC, I'm going to put it on a CC. Then you pay off that balance each month so you aren't paying interest.
Same goes for home loans and auto loans. If you can get an Auto loan that is below 3% you're making money. Say you dump $20k into a new/used car. You now are $20K poorer. You don't gain any interest on that money sitting in an investment now. It's been spent on a depreciating asset. Now since you have good credit, no money down on your 3% auto loan and $20K in an investment making 5% a year. Do the math and you will realize you are going to come out ahead by going into debt on the auto loan.
Dave Ramsey can continue to tell people to live debt free and how liberating it is, but he's in a financial place to do that as he is a millionaire. Pretty easy to tell others to live debt free and that it's easier said than done when you have millions in the bank (55 according to Celebrity Net Worth)

Don’t worry, when Iran get’s all nuked up, Obama will just blame it on Bush, no problem.

HAHAHAHAHAHA, The DOJ cited the 14th Amendment, I thought they tore up, stomped on, and burned that stupid piece of parchment when Obama got “Elected”.

“We need to change our traditions and our history, Moochele Obama”, why? You can’t CHANGE history you can only LIE about it. Geez. If your plan is so good why do you have to lie and cheat so much??? Just tell us your PLAN!!!

Hey catty, Did you get the “Proglodyte” tattoo on your forehead yet? It might keep you safe when the DHS comes to “Train” in your town.

Our student protesters want to become a commie crap hole, can we have a student exchange program.

What about conservatives do they have a place in the 21st century? I’m sure the little biotch is worried about someone who disagrees with her.
That depends. Will Conservatives be on the right or wrong side of history when it comes to gay rights?
@sosorryforyou. That depends on which side is right or wrong. I prefer Darwin's side. Homosexuality is an evolutionary dead end. His words not mine. I'll gladly let homosexuals be democrats. After 1 generation no more brain dead democrats! Conservative homosexuals will have a much easier time surving then!
Homosexuality has never been an evolutionary dead end. Heterosexuals and homosexuals will continue to give birth and raise homosexuals until humans no longer exist. Also, when Darwin lived, gay adoption was not legal. Not only can gays adopt now and raise their children with liberal views, they can and always have been able to have biological children of their own, and raise them with liberal ideals if they wish.
Sosorry. Are you saying that homosexuals make homosexuals? Happy people have the same rights as others are you saying that perverts should have special rights?
Staycalm - of course homosexuals can create and birth homosexuals. And they create and birth heterosexuals, too. They do it the same way heterosexuals create and birth homosexuals and heterosexuals. And, what special rights are gays asking for?

Which is why I love the guy, I’m so sick and tired of the establishment commies in BOTH party’s that I’m about to go crazy, no one left to just obey the Constitution except Ted and a few others, why do they want to destroy America and the last bastion of freedom? Because that’s how commies roll, wait until they find out how REAL American’s roll. F.U. Peter King and all you traitors.

Sorry guys, You’ve been taken in by more Proglodyte lies, the real reason they don’t want to legalize pot is it would be too hard to tax, the pot they grow now is no more potent than it was then, I remember the opiated Ti- stick, the Acapulco gold, the Maui -Wowi and the original sensamian from Humbolt Co. California, all better **** than the crappy weed they sell today. DON’T listen to Proglodytes, all they care about is taking your money.

Hey Chuckie, How about the terrorist in The White House that’s trying to shut down the power grid. These people are truly amazing, they make war on energy then tell us how much we depend on it, drives me crazy.

@ Kupo, Nabuq is a total nut when it comes to weed, it’s like a virgin explaining about sex. And no you can’t OD on weed, might make you sleepy, mostly makes you laugh, and turns you eyes red.
February 16, 2014 at 4:13pm
@ PencilNeck. Once again you show your ignorance, Carbon credits are a total scam, they give polluters permission to pollute by paying off the Government thugs. And oil company’s don’t receive subsidies, another Poglodyte lie meant to fool you stupid robots. A tax break for exploration costs and purchasing equipment, just like ALL company’s get is not the same as getting a check from the taxpayers. Oil and gas company’s pay BILLIONS in taxes, try again foolish robot.

I’ll bet it was laced with something a little more potent than weed, irregular heartbeat, sounds more like coke or meth. Shoot, if a little weed did that to you I would’a croaked in high school.
Don't know how old you are geeman but the weed that is grown and processed today is 10-20x as powerful as the stuff I smoked occasionally in high school and college during the late 60s and early 70s. And despite all of the claims from the pro-legalization crowd I have plenty of old pot smoking acquaintances whose futures were dimmed by that era's weed.
Raptor, exactly what I was going to post.
Your right Raptor, in the middle 70's I tried it a few times and it just made me goofy, I tried it once again after I retired in 09, and my friend had just returned from visiting the CA pot shops, and this time it made me extremely paranoid for 6 0r 7 hours.
Sorry guys, You've been taken in by more Proglodyte lies, the real reason they don't want to legalize pot is it would be too hard to tax, the pot they grow now is no more potent than it was then, I remember the opiated Ti- stick, the Acapulco gold, the Maui -Wowi and the original sensamian from Humbolt Co.

The University of Mississippi's Potency Monitoring Project (UMPMC) tested seized marijuana from all 50 states to determine the percentage of THC, the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.
The average potency of all marijuana in the US, according to the UMPMC's Dec. 2008 – Mar. 2009 quarterly report, was 8.52% (5.62% domestic and 9.57% nondomestic).
The highest tested sample had 22.04% THC (domestic) and 27.30% THC (nondomestic). The highest tested sample ever tested between 1975 and 2009 had 33.12% THC (domestic) and 37.20% THC (nondomestic).
For comparison, the national average of marijuana's THC content in 1978 was 1.37%, in 1988 it was 3.59%, in 1998 4.43%, and in 2008 8.49%.
Although average potencies have increased, the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) reported in the June 4, 2002 Washington Post article "The Real Dope: Tried the 'Today's Pot Is Stronger' Claim With Your Kids? Your Cover Is Blown" that "joint sizes have dropped over the years from half a gram to about a quarter of a gram." In addition, pipes, water pipes, and vaporizers typically require less marijuana per use than joints and these items have become increasingly popular over the last 30 years. Some medical marijuana advocates contend that more potent marijuana means less marijuana is needed to achieve the desired medical benefit.
ProCon.org compiled a table of marijuana potency from 1975-2003. The data was tabulated from the Annual Reports of Mahmoud A. ElSohly, PhD

That’s all you’ve got? Geez Blaze, wait till you have a STORY!
The Blaze just keeps getting worse. Wall-to-wall ads, coupled with shoddy reporting and tabloid stories. Then there are the rampant third grade grammar mistakes, and let's not forget the moderators who instantly delete any post they don't agree with.
Hehe! And, the story is filed under "education"...it should have been filed in the obituaries...
FishingWithKitten, you expressed my sentiments. I have become increasingly disappointed with the site. It should be so much better.
Why the hell is this news??????
I really get disappointed in a world with so many adult things to tackle and not many are willing toStay Focused. Satan must think we are the easiest creatures to distract & fool.
If it's gonna be fluff stories.....At least funny or happy ones please!!!
The censorship here is pretty bad.
It's an AP story with no byline.
Smart move, I wouldn't want to take credit for this story either.
here is a story:Slovenian hackers claimed they managed to break into the Federal Bureau of Investigation and uploaded email addresses and personal data relating to the director to online storage website called Pastebin.
The Slovenian branch of Anonymous confirmed they had posted the FBI domain email addresses and passwords for about 70 agents, while adding that the collected log-in details were “not all ours”.
Anonymous also uploaded a short profile on FBI director James Comey.
The data included his date of birth, his wife’s name, the date they got married, his education and the geographical coordinates of his residence.
In addition, a couple of internal FBI portals are also included in the post – the agency’s Virtual Academy site from its training division, and the Agents Association.
It was revealed that 2 of the FBI’s domain name servers for www.fbi.gov were affected, and the hackers stole data from 7 open ports on the servers.
The Pastebin link was posted by Anonymous Slovenia on their Facebook Page, with a comment “Laughing at your security”.
The famous hacking collective has been out of the headlines lately due to infighting amongst its members.
Anonymous had developed a reputation for being script kiddies arranging DDoS attacks. However, the recent news suggests that there are still good hackers in the outfit who keep working despite of the group’s shortcomings.
FishingWithKittens ...My thoughts too...I refer you to my "‘The Formation of Love’: Here’s What Facebook Sees As You Enter Into a Relationship" 11:53 post...
Twice as many college students die every year than the about 350 people shot dead each year in self defense.
Since theblaze has a featured the self defense stories each day, does this mean a new series has started and we will be seeing 2 student death stories every day?
I knew there would be an astute observation in here somewhere.
succinct, yet refined.

@ Junk, Like you said, the Clinton’s have NO class, they destroyed the tradition of not commenting on sitting Presidents. So Woody has a point, it’s time to take off the kid gloves, and fight fire with fire. All Obama really does is fly around giving hate speeches, I’d like for SOMEONE to call him on it. And JORDAN, who’s the “Holier than thou dipshlt”? YOU! I’d bet just about everyone on this site, besides the trolls, went out, held their nose and voted for Romney, he didn’t win because of widespread CHEATING. If you listened to talk radio you’d know they did call out Bush on many issues you dumass, so GFYS.

@ PencilNeck, Look at all your Proglodyte “Solutions” that you nutjobs have to change the climate, they all include some way of digging in our wallets, the very fact that you think you CAN, tells me you’re a nut, and a brainwashed Robamatron.
