I just voted!

Just came back from voting. I think it’s imperative that we all vote especially this year. It doesn’t matter who you vote for but we’ve all got to care. We’re in this together. This might be the toughest time in our country’s history. Everyday something else seems to fall apart and now covid is back full bore and ready to start murdering people this winter. Sad situation. I know people think voting can be a real pain. I was one of those people but from the time that I was given the privilege, I always used it. I’m a child of the sixties and early seventies and we were the original protest generation. The thought of not exercising my right to vote was not an option. Technology and good judgment have finally made it one of the easiest things in the world you can do. Many people are doing what I do now. For the last 20 years, I’ve been voting while sitting my butt on this couch. Let me tell you how I do it so next time we have an election it’s not the pain in the ass you think it is and you’ll get out there and vote this way. I get my ballot through the mail. Once I receive that ballot it will never go through the mail again. It’s very simple. Go online to the supervisor of the election site in your area and just request a mail-in Ballot. I received mine 6 weeks before the elections. It affords me a lot of privilege. Convenience is really down on the bottom of my list but it certainly is a consideration. Most importantly, I’m able to sit here with my tablet in one hand and my ballots in the other and research each candidate. I never was one to vote party only. I try and vote for the person who best represents the people and who will have integrity and intelligence while doing their job. I research every candidate and make what I feel is the right decision for myself. Now like many, especially in these times I don’t trust the USPS. Not for any particular reason except that with all this BS floating around about election tampering I want to be the one who touches that ballot last before it goes in the Box. You can find out more on our Educational Resources page.

The system seems to have been set up perfectly to have all those things happen. I finished voting at about 2:00 today and drove down to my local polling place. Parking was easy. I had to walk about a hundred yards …no big deal. I didn’t stand in that long line of people. I held up my mail-in ballot and a gentleman who worked there pointed me to a door that didn’t have anyone in front of it. Nobody was lined up for that door. I walked in turned left and two feet in front of me was a poll worker who asked me if she could see my sealed ballot. She looked at it, said thank you, and told me to put it in this gigantic steel safe with a mail hole on the top. I did that, she handed me one of those I voted stickers and said it gets picked up three times a day. From there on I trust the system. I believe that there are checks and balances and in addition in two or three days, I can go to the supervisor’s site and make sure the ballot was received and counted. On top of that, I left my phone number on the front of the ballot in the space that was provided, and they will call you if there’s a problem with the signature or something like that. That’s how easy it is to vote. I was home in 20 minutes round trip. We live in a great country. My dad’s generation, which is considered the greatest generation of all time fought for this country. They fought for our right to be free. They fought for our right to be a democracy which gives us the right to vote. My father flew airplanes in the United States Army Air Corps. Every day he went up in one of those B-17s, which became B-24’s as the technology progressed, he and everyone else who flew risked their lives. Those airplanes were called flying coffins. I avail myself of my right every time that I can. I do it because I want to . I do it because I believe that we all need to, and I do it because I respect the people that fought to put us in a position where we have a say in who rules this country. You see my point. That’s my post for the day. Everybody stay safe and please wear a mask. It doesn’t make you less than, it makes you a hero. It makes you a patriot.

You have visited Federated Financial’s payday loan consolidation site. We are the kind of company that takes your outstanding Advance loan debt and in most cases is able to get your creditors to reduce your interest rates from a high of 700% APR all the way down to zero. Just get you out of debt and a quicker time than you could do so yourself …..with a much lower monthly payment. Those postdated check loans are financially dangerous. The business model that your lenders use is geared to keep you in debt for many years paying unnecessary fees and ridiculous interest rates. We can definitely help. 23 years in business with an A+ rating with the BBB says we are the best. And We Care.

What really is the state of the union today?

News flash! Straight from the White House! The President announces Dr. Fauci and the experts are idiots, and Dr. Fauci is a disaster. This latest proclamation from wannabe King Trump confirms what he’s known all along. There’s a card missing from that deck of 52 he deals from. That’s an amazing statement coming from a man that grabbed a short video of this doc and without his consent inserted him in a campaign advertisement. I think his Royal Highness needs to make up his mind here. Now, it seems like he did. The Monarch went on to say on Monday that he has no problem with the doctor and actually likes him. He continued by adding, I think he’s a terrific guy. Then he flipped again. He went on to say that every time he goes on television there’s always a bomb. But, there’s a bigger bomb if you fire him. Well, his Royal Highness certainly has that one right. Right now Anthony Fauci is leading the polls as one of the most popular people in this country. We already know the state of King Trump’s popularity. Quite frankly it sucks. It ought to suck. He has blood on his hands. And, by the way, Trump has no power or authority to fire the doctor. All he can do is remove him from the coronavirus task force but I think Dr. Fauci has done that for himself already. More rhetoric and Bullshit from a royal despot who’s losing control.

 

I pose this question? What is wrong with wearing a mask? The idiots who the King refers to are the top infectious disease docs in the world. They say simply wearing a mask and social distancing can save hundreds of thousands of lives this winter. What’s wrong with that? You would think that a man who just was discharged from the hospital a scant two weeks ago would have been humbled by his experience. Perhaps, humbled enough to say he was wrong. Might he have said, Please wear the masks! Protect your brothers and sisters in these United States. Not only didn’t he do that but upon returning to the White House that night he took the mask off and defiantly looked out into the evening air from his portico and took the photo op. I believe his recovery was a good thing. I wish bad on no living creature on this planet. This man couldn’t keep his wife and son healthy. He allowed this disease into the White House by defying the opinions of true experts in the field of infectious diseases. The super spreader event, AKA the introduction of Amy Coney Barrett which is another story itself led to the direct infection of 32 people that we know about. That’s leadership at its best. As the King of America said, I had it, I know what it’s like to have it and I understand. I recovered. Yeah, he recovered. He received the finest medical care in the world and the finest drugs that haven’t been released to the public yet. Drugs that you and I would never see if God forbid we were infected.

 

The King speaks about rebuilding the economy and the fantastic job he’s done. All he’s done is throw Band-Aids onto the wounds, instead of going to the source and fixing the core problem. All hail the King!

Unemployment requests jump and some people just don’t seem to care!

Job reports came out this morning and the numbers don’t look good. Almost 900,000 people applied for unemployment last week. The nation has been hovering around 800,000 new claims each week and it took a jump today. People not only aren’t going back to work, but more are losing their jobs. Where are our leaders? In the last couple of weeks both governors, Ron DeSantis of Florida and Governor Greg Abbott in Texas have allowed stadiums to open to full capacity. I watched the Texas A&M Florida game last weekend and I was shocked at how many maskless people there were in a crowd of 40,000. Florida comes home and announces that they’ll have a full house this coming Saturday. 80,000 people in the Swamp? Thanks, Governor DeSantis. Another spectacular job you’ve done there. It doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. Fate dealt with these poor kids who play football and totally rely on their coaches who are their mentors to protect them a horrible blow. 19 of those kids came down with coronavirus this week. That’s 19 boys because let’s are real here. 18 and 19 and 20-year-olds aren’t fully grown men between the years yet especially in a protected college setting. They were let down by the people they trusted the most, their coaches and state government. It doesn’t look like Florida’s playing anything this weekend but the quarantine game. It’s really sad. These kids don’t get paid yet they can get sick. Numbers are spiking all over the country, yet these two governors say take off the masks and let’s play some football..

 

And now I digress for a moment. Why are there 900,000 unemployment claims this week? These are new unemployment claims. That’s because companies are going out of business for good given that some of our elected officials don’t recognize that there is an absolute pandemic still alive and well and growing in this country. These college kids are just pawns in the game of life to these universities and are just money-making machines for their school. That would be not for themselves but for their school. Truth be told, our leaders don’t seem to give a s*** and it looks like the plan here is to achieve herd immunity. We saw how that worked out in Sweden. NOT!! I throw my hands up in the air when I see stuff like this and I want to stand on top of the Empire State Building in New York with the biggest microphone on the planet and scream “get out there and vote vote vote!!!!”

Make a change start today! Reboot your Financial life!

As I write this the world is changing before us. More people are going back to work because they have to. The unemployment stimulus has run out and right now today it doesn’t look like any new help is in sight. Now, hopefully, people in this country start earning a living again and begin to dig out of their financial mess. This pandemic has hurt all of us in many ways. Many Americans have gotten into a specific kind of problem that can seem insurmountable at times. Each year 12 million folks take out payday loans. 12 million people taking out payday loans at interest rates that can run anywhere from 200 to 700% annually. During the last five or six months, businesses were closed.

Consequently, the collectors weren’t working and most of the collection lawyers weren’t working either. Now that people are back to work everybody is doing what they do. The problem is so are the collectors. Many fell way behind on these loans with no one to show them an easier way out. It’s ridiculous to think that some Americans who might be making minimum wage or a bit more are responsible for thousands of dollars that they truly intended to pay back when they took these loans out. And then came Covid19. There is no way anybody who has been through this pandemic without enough savings can pay these loans off in the time frame that the creditors want, and in a way that won’t cost up to 700% interest.

Fortunately, companies like Federated Financial exist and are able to help you out. Federated is a 23-year-old A plus BBB rated company.

Staying healthy in the time of covid-19 and keep paying your bills!

It’s been an interesting weekend in America. I’m going to be nice. Before I’m nice I will say that I am a lifelong registered Republican. So, most of America is back to work. We all want to stay healthy. We want to take care of our lives. We want to earn a living, take care of our families, and stay away from COVID-19. We do not want it to make us sick. We’re living in a world that’s different. They call it the new normal and it might be the new forever. Perhaps it’s a better way to live than we had before. We will find out as time goes by. We need the vaccine but not until it’s safe. Vaccines work! If anybody doesn’t believe it, Google the word polio. Google the word measles. Google the words whooping cough. I could go on and on. My generation. The people who were born after 1955 never see those diseases again. They were eradicated from this planet with vaccines. Vaccines work! In order to stay healthy during this pandemic, when the vaccines become available to common folks like us we must take them and trust. My parents and all the parents who had children back in the 50s made sure we the children were vaccinated. Until the time comes when there is a safe COVID-19 virus wearing masks, social distancing, and quarantining ourselves if we get sick or suspect that we could get sick is an absolute must. I honestly don’t know anyone who has gotten sick wearing a decent mask and I’m not talking about the paper crap or the cloth. I’m talking about a decent respirator mask that can be purchased for pennies more than a dollar right now.

 

Unfortunately this weekend many were given a message that just isn’t true. Here’s where I’m going to be nice. We won’t mention names. We need to be afraid of COVID-19. It’s killed over 200,000 Americans. That’s something to be afraid of. It’s real. A certain VIP was diagnosed, allegedly last Friday, but it could have been last Monday because nobody’s telling. Fast forward and he’s out of the hospital on Monday night. He’s still positive but he’s going to quarantine at home and do his work from there. The problem is he tweets too much. He tells the public, do not be afraid of COVID-19. He tells the public that masks aren’t particularly necessary, see Any Coney Barrett’s introduction 2 weeks ago, and you’ll see what I mean. Including this particular person, 19 people are sick from that event. How sick, who will recover and who won’t is still up in the air! We do not know. Nobody social distanced, nobody wore masks. People need to be told what to do and the person who has the most power to do that is not telling the truth. So my message here is very simple and three-fold. Wear the damn mask. That should be a mandate. Social distance. Maintain at least 6 ft between you and whoever you’re speaking with. And, then you can go to work every day, feed your family and not worry about money. At that point, you can pay your bills. It’s a nice feeling to be able to take care of yourself. If you’ve run into problems with your payday loans Federated Financial can help. Federated can consolidate them in most cases at a 0% interest rate. We’ve been in business for 23 years and are rated A plus with the BBB. Just a thought because you’re on this site. Check out our videos for more information about our company.

 

Last thought. Don’t believe everything you hear or see on TV. Especially when it comes from a house that’s white. The man who lives in that house, that house that is white has a heart that’s black. He cares little for anybody at all except himself. Note, when someone gets out of the hospital and still tests positive they wear their mask when they walk inside their home. The man in the beautiful old historic house that’s white, can’t even protect the ones he loves by doing that one simple thing.
