Does anyone know of a legit cash advance or payday advance company online or in the state of North Carolina. I need about $200 fast, like today?
President Bush and many Republicans have been telling us how great the economy is since they enacted tax cuts for the wealthy and gave big business carte blanche. Now the housing market is falling apart, the stock market is tumbling, loan sharks disguised as “payday lenders” are legally robbing poor people who don’t know any better, and oil prices (and profits) are at record highs, as is the national deficit.
But they have a plan to fix all of that – More tax cuts!
From Yahoo! News: “By MARTIN CRUTSINGER, AP Economics Writer – WASHINGTON – The Bush administration, faced with a deteriorating economy and a big jump in unemployment, said Friday it was considering an economic stimulus package that might include tax cuts to ward off a recession…”
Albert Einstein said the definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results.”
Are more tax cuts for the wealthy really the way to help our nation, all Americans, and our crumbling economy?
Yes, the deficit is getting smaller. Still a deficit, and still far from the Budget Surplus we had under Clinton, yes, but smaller. The national debt already run up by Bush’s policies (and Republican backing) however, remains absurdly high.
We can cut the deficit by cutting funding for education and health care, by cutting funds designated to help the the mentally and physically challenged, by cutting (or vetoing) health care for children, and of course for helping the poor and needy. But I don’t think that doing so, while giving multi-million dollar tax cuts to wealthy individuals is the way that a Moral Nation should be cutting its deficits.
Great answers, Crabby, Iceman and Ty (and others). Laissez faire (no government regulation of corporations)is the direct cause of things like:
> Our crumbling infrastructure
> Ken Lay, Enron and Arthur Anderson
> Predatory lending
> Use of foreign sweatshops
> Exporting jobs and supporting illegal immigration to replace Americans’ jobs (yours and mine) with cheap labor
> Insurance companies scamming billions and “sheltering” it overseas
> Hundreds-million dollar “bonuses” even for failed executives who destroy corporations and, more importantly, the lives of employees and their families
I agree – government that is TOO big is not good for the people, and the same can be said for corporations.
Allowing corporations to control the government, dictate our laws (including tax laws) and set the foreign and economic policies of our nation will not hurt the wealthy, but will reduce the middle class to slavery and ultimately destroy our nation.
I think someone has stolen my husband’s identity. He had an attempt to use his credit card last week and yesterday we had a message on our landline to ring back some loan company regarding his online application – of course he never made one. When we phoned them back they said they couldn’t give us any information unless we gave them his national insurance number!! The company in question were called “Pounds til payday”.
We also received a letter addressed to some unknown person at our address, again it was a loan company. I rang them and they said according to their records that person’s account had not been used since last year, maybe they had moved since then. I’ve lived here 7 years! I told her that something dodgy was going on and she just said she wouldn’t send anymore correspondance to my address and if I was concerned then phone the police. I WAS concerned so I DID phone the police and all I was given was a reference number!
What else can we do?
I know now we have logged it with the police and they’re aware of it if anything else happens it should be nothing to worry about as they should deal with it but we feel violated, it’s almost like someone’s broken into my house and I don’t trust anyone anymore.
Surely there is more that we can do but to sit back and wait for the next attempt to fraudulently gain money under my husband’s name?
They bank have already cancelled his card and we are waiting for a new one.
I am more concerned about people getting other credit in his name rather than using his existing accounts, the bank have been really good as it was them that alerted us to it in the first place.
