honestly I don't know where my brain is.
my mind is so scattered, I've been buried in a book and surfacing is hard.
so here's a couple of talking points I heard on the news.
That missing Malaysian airplane with over 200 passengers and crew.
It's my opinion that plane has been hijacked.
Here's why...its communications and radar systems were turned off. It deliberately flew off course before vanishing. Some of the passengers are now known to be flying with falsified passports.
If there had been a crash, something should have shown up by now in the searches currently underway.
So I think it has purposely flown somewhere it shouldn't have and the people at that destination are hiding it and the passengers.
I want to know why and I want to know why all passports were not thoroughly checked before boarding was allowed.
You've all heard about the new credit card laws coming into effect?
Not paying off your cards, missing a payment, or making late payments (more than 5 days late), will now earn you a black mark against your financial history and that will stay there for two years.
So, make a payment on your card statement more than five days late, forget about it, then eighteen months or two years later suddenly find you can't get a loan because there is a black mark against you.
How's that for sneaky?
"they" are saying this will be to help people get on top of their credit card debts, will help people to budget....well, it might not help everybody. I heard one woman interviewed on the news who stated that she used a credit card to pay her bills. It would seem she has credit going around and around on her cards with none of it ever actually getting paid off. If she always pays on time, this might not be so bad, but if she misses a payment.....
Well, there it is, a couple of things to think about and I'll dive back into my book.
