Ugh… Another ER Visit This Past Weekend…

Ugh… There was another bout with this crappy disease (get it? crappy disease… HA!). Anyway, there was another roughly 10 pound loss over the course of a few days. I will admit, however, that this one wasn’t even close to the last one back in January 2009 (I guess 3 years without an ER visit is alright). With that one, [FLASHBACK: I think I lost something like 15 pounds in…

So… Quick Welfare / Food Stamps / EBT Research…

As you’ve probably seen, I’m doing just fine when it comes to finances (they’re plastered all over this blog). However, I started thinking about all of this government spending and how something like 60% of it is for entitlements. So, I figured I would apply and get some food stamps / EBT to attempt to recoup some of the taxes that I’m paying. I can’t tell you how aggravating it…

Sex Before Marriage… To Each Their Own…

The first thing I noticed on this article was an old-school jam that I didn’t realize I didn’t have on my iPod (David Josias – Mind Blowing). Great song from ‘back in the day’.

My thoughts go out to the family, friends, and the boy himself. However, my issue was with the mother. It seems that she may not have done everything that she could have done to save him.

USAA… Net Worth 09-25-2012

So here’s the latest financial picture (which doesn’t include at least two other positive large accounts (5 figures)). I was able to find a place on Mint.com that actually showed Net Worth over time. Shown below: The HUGE shift in last August / September’s transition was because some accounts weren’t added until later. On another not, sorry, but I had to get away from Yodlee.com (that’s where the original Net…

Become A Former Member of the 99%

I was riding the CTA the other day and saw a poster ad for Crain’s Chicago Business. It was fairly straight-forward, a red background with white letters. It said, “Become A Former Member of the 99%”. I thought it was AWESOME!   It turns out this isn’t the only type of poster (there are 3): Become A Former Member of the 99%. Contains Accelerants. Raising Tax Brackets Since 1978.
