payday loan consolidation

Some more random thoughts from a real PDL consolidation company!

Broward Dade and Palm Beach county beaches are opening tomorrow. Now that’s important, not!! At least the powers-that-be were smart enough not to open them today. They would have been inundated with people but for the fact that we are having monsoon rains and nobody would have come out anyway. Restaurants are opening up. They’re putting as many tables outside as they can because they’re allowed to have diners outside. Inside is another story. I believe they’re only allowed to open up 50%. In addition they need to follow complete social distancing rules, and consequently have everybody seated the requisite distance apart. I’ve seen videos of restaurants installing partitions in between booths. I’ve also been reading that in some of the smaller restaurants the ventilation systems are not new and consequently will not filter the virus but spread it around the room if somebody were to sneeze or cough. To me that looks like a disaster waiting to happen but I’m not an expert. Thank God! Look where the experts got us. Beauty salons and barber shops are opening up tomorrow in South Florida.

That’s exciting. Not!! I need a haircut. Everybody I know needs a haircut. 90% of the women I know need to take the gray out. My question would have to be, is my hair worth my life? I already know the answer. Think about it, these places will be filled to 50% capacity. 6-foot social distancing, and a hairdresser wearing a mask standing in front of you. She is leaning into you while she’s cutting your hair. Now I’m one of those people that wears a cloth mask that ties in the back twice. In addition there is a pouch of the mask for a HEPA filter which I use. I feel extremely protected. What about the people who are wearing paper masks. Somebody’s going to sneeze. Somebody’s going to cough. We’re human beings it’s what we do. The CDC says that 35% of coronavirus cases can be asymptomatic. If that truly is the case everybody is susceptible to catching it and all the thermometers taking temperatures and all the precautions and the assertions that people make about not being sick are all useless. Nobody has a clue as to as to whether they’re sick or not if they feel fine. I’ve also read that a good number of swab tests, those tests where they stick a footlong Q-Tip up your nose have been coming back false negative. Some people do not have as much virus inside of them as others do and consequently the swab does not pick up enough of the virus to register positive. This massive reopening is not a wonderful thing. I don’t care what any politician says, red or blue. The bottom line is if there’s no way to take a test that gives you an accurate result there’s no way we can all go back to work. It’s really very simple. In addition, if this whole thing blows up and I hope it doesn’t, the country will be shuttered again. That could very well be the end of the economy as we know it for the next 20 years. That’s a disaster in the making.

On a more pleasant note Major League owners, and the MLB players association will be sending figures back and forth to each other regarding the percentage of pay that each player will make this year. It looks like they’re going to play ball! Even in an empty Stadium it would be a welcome relief. A strand of normalcy in this crazy world we live in. they need to resolve their issues this week because spring-training number two would have to start the following week and hopefully by the third week of June the schedule will be redone and will have baseball back. at this point both the players and owners realize that Major League Baseball attendance has been down every year over the last seven years and the last thing they want to do is take a year off and let people forget how much they love the game. I could never forget, but the casual watcher can. They’re going to make it exciting. Half a season. Sprint to the finish. And they’re talking 10-team playoffs. Sounds like fun. Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York has officially stated that it’s time to play ball in New York and he’s offered any team having a virus problem in their home state to relocate in New York for this training. New York and New Jersey have three large ball parks. Yankee Stadium, Citi Field, and Giants stadium right across the river in Jersey. In addition Minor League Baseball thrives in upstate New York. Syracuse, Binghamton and many other small towns are home to minor league teams and have first class facilities. This is an ongoing story but it is a step in the right direction and hopefully it all works out. I don’t know how they will keep everybody healthy but they have a list of protocols that could fill a phone book. Fingers crossed on this one.

Finally, on the financial front, leaders in both the house and the Senate from red and blue States all agree that stimulus checks should be sacrosanct. in other words they are in the process of putting together and passing a bill right now that’s going to protect the stimulus check that you’ve either received or are going to receive very soon, from any claim a creditor may lay on it. In other words these checks are like Social Security checks or retirement accounts. Uncollectible! I think it’s the right thing to do and many states have instituted non collection mandates. It’ll soon be law. What about payday loans. Many payday loan companies are run by native American tribes. They work on sovereign Indian land and are exempt from collection laws. If you need real PDL consolidation help you need us. You have borrowed through the years and many folks have run up some serious PDL debt. Rolling one high-interest loan into another is not the way to do it. You need payday loan consolidation from a real PDL consolidation company. I keep calling us real because we do the job we promised to do. We’re a 23 year-old company with an A+ rating with the BBB. We have impeccable credibility and great relations with your creditors. They work with us and they work with our program. We have integrity, and will they know when we tell them you’re working with us more than likely they’re going to get paid.

corona virus threat

Up-to-the-minute results of our country reopening!

As of this morning there have been more than 1.4 million coronavirus cases in our country. That’s based on the Johns Hopkins University estimate. Approximately 89000 people have passed away in the United States. Major automakers, Chrysler Fiat Jeep, Ford and General Motors are slowly beginning to reopen for business. The stock market was up almost a thousand points today. The market has reason to be hopeful. The reason for this optimism is that pharmaceutical company Moderna, has reported that their first clinical trial has shown that out of 45 people injected with the new vaccine, all 45 developed antibodies that normally only occur in people who have already had the virus. That is incredibly promising news. They’re 45 for 45 independent of the size of the dosage which varied by person. A big start, and phase 3 will start in July. They are optimistically hoping for a year-end vaccine. That’s probably the biggest news of all. Moderna is an United States based company out of Massachusetts. It would be great finding the cure here in the United States. That would reaffirm our greatness in the field of science and make sure that Americans, especially our healthcare workers in America would be inoculated first. So for every positive there’s a negative. isn’t it amazing how good news brings the morons out? The number of vaccinations administered to children in Michigan has dropped by as much as 22% during this pandemic. This report was released today by the CDC. The CDC happened to use Michigan as a case study but it has no bearing on other states in this nation. Why are people not getting their children vaccinated? The answer is pretty simple. It’s not Financial because I know that most states have programs to inoculate children regardless of their parents ability to pay. It has nothing to do with socioeconomic circumstance or the almighty dollar. This is all about the ridiculous anti vaccination groups keep popping up all over the world. I don’t get it. In this case science completely rules. When I was a kid I had to take a polio vaccine. They don’t give those anymore. No more measles or mumps shots either. Why not? Because these diseases have been eradicated from the planet. Is it magic? Did David Blaine make them disappear? Course not. Vaccinations rule. Why do people believe that their children should not be vaccinated? In this case you could lay odds that all these non vaccinators blame the inoculations that people have received throughout the years as the cause of the continuing covid virus. How ridiculous is that?

In other news Georgia has been open for more than 2 weeks now and as yet, there has not been a spike in Corona cases. There are probably two reasons for that and I hope I’m wrong about this. Reason number one could simply be that there’s always a lag between infection and symptoms. Especially symptoms that are bad enough to require seeing a doctor or going to a hospital or taking a test. Now fingers crossed, I’ll say  the other possible reason could possibly be the new way that we’re learning to live. I’m referring to social distancing and no physical touching as in handshakes. This very well could be keeping covid-19 at bay in the state of Georgia. I’m sure we’re going to find out really soon especially as more and more states begin to reopen.

How about restaurants? Is it safe to go out and eat. There are many new rules in place for going out to eat. Hand washing and employees wearing cloth face coverings are both essentials. The CDC recommends that all restaurants intensify sanitation disinfection and cleaning. Create social distancing by spacing tables and continuing to recommend curbside pickup. Restaurants are required to develop a system to check for signs and symptoms of covid-19 in their employees. So now, will the people come back? That’s an unknown. We do know that restaurant capacity is going to be greatly cut given the rules about separating tables and total people allowed in each establishment. It’s tough for the restaurants to begin with. The situation we are in makes it much tougher. Think about it, we go out to eat to relax. Maybe we go out with our kids on a Sunday. Our adult kids and sit in a sports bar watching the game and eating wings. Well there are no games and there are rules for the customers too. Face masks are required. The only time they can be removed is when you are eating. Your server will be wearing a face mask and gloves. Now I see this in Publix when I go shopping and I have to admit that I am feeling a certain level of discomfort when I’m walking in a grocery store. But, grocery shopping isn’t supposed to be relaxing. It’s a necessity. I can’t imagine not having that same feeling in a restaurant where everybody is masked and if you just sit and try and forget about the world around you you’re reminded every time you open your eyes if you are sitting in a covid-19 world restaurant. I’ve got to tell you. There’s nothing relaxing about that in my opinion. Although I support this country and certainly small business, I’m going to choose to sit those restaurants out for a while. I don’t mind making my own food sitting in front of my own big screen television set that broadcasts in 4k, and not worrying about somebody walking by, or serving me and sneezing while I’m not wearing a mask. It’s really that simple. I think the restaurants have a big tall ladder to climb and it’s going to take a long time before people are comfortable again. I won’t be comfortable until I’m able to get a vaccination. We go to the grocery stores because we have to. Nobody forces us to go to a restaurant. I am not anti restaurant. I am anti covid-19. Now I feel the same way about gyms. This one I don’t get and I am a workout person. Now full confession, I have a full gym in my house and I’ve always used it. I don’t need to use a public gym but I’ll occasionally drop by one of the gyms in my community perhaps a few times a month because of the social aspect involved. I’m glad I don’t have to do that now. How many times have we been in gyms, I mean real gyms and have had the person in front of us not clean off a bench that they sweat on, or a machine? In my mind gyms are already Petri dishes for disease. why would we put ourselves in Jeopardy doing something that we specifically do to be healthy. There are plenty of household items you can use to have a really good workout. The elliptical can be replaced by brisk walking and the same benefits will be reaped without the risk of catching covid-19. I don’t believe that one person in our government ever thought what would happen if everything reopened and nobody came. The jury is out on all this right now. There ought to be a verdict in the next month or so. Once again I really hope that I am wrong.

The lone Star State has reopened. Yes Texas is open for business. The only problem in Texas is that this weekend, and Saturday specifically Texas had the biggest single day jump in covid-19 cases since the pandemic began. 1801 new cases were diagnosed on Saturday. Texas Governor Abbott, laid the blame on the City of Amarillo noting that there were 700 new cases in Amarillo alone on Saturday. Is that really an important point? Amarillo is a hotspot. We all have cars. We go places. I don’t believe it’s safe there. I wouldn’t feel safe doing anything in Texas right now yet against all the original criteria for reopening including a 14-day downslope in new cases Texas has reopened.

These are some of the things that I noticed today in the news. Our world is still crazy. It seems like the craziness will never end. I genuinely hope like all of us do, that there will be a vaccine and it’ll happen sooner than later. I hope the people wise up and stick out their arms to accept the needle gratefully. Everyday is a day to watch. Day to keep our fingers crossed and Hope that we’ve finally crossed the bridge and we’re going to be able to continue to work and keep this country open..  Most importantly keep all that horrible death away.

The country goes back to work at the cost of human life!

Incendiary headline? Perhaps. Truth? No doubt. So here’s the thing. It’s basically a lose-lose situation. Models predict that the death rate per day in the United States will spike up to 3,000 people by June. If we don’t go back to work some people will be financially destroyed. Already payday lenders are flourishing and payday loan consolidation companies are fighting to keep up with them. New clients are flocking in. If we don’t go back to work, mental health will continue to suffer. What I mean by that is that during this lockdown people have been getting depressed. Especially seniors who live alone. The suicide rates have been going up. Domestic violence calls have been rising greatly. People are literally going stir-crazy. This is a complete no-win situation. I would hate to be a President right now. Every call is the wrong call except for one thing. Our president had the choice to roll this out slowly or straight out open it up like a bull in a China closet. That would be the opening he’s chosen which in many states is in direct contravention to CDC guidelines and his own guidelines too. He released those guidelines just a week or so ago and the one that sticks out in my mind is a state must have a 14-day contiguous decline in virus before re opening. In his reopening plan that decline has not been complied with. He just can’t comply with his own rules. He has zero patience. At this point in time this should not be about politics. As President George W Bush so eloquently put it the other day, and I’m paraphrasing a bit, this virus doesn’t play favorites between the one party or another. We need to put politics aside here and just do the right thing. Governor Andrew Cuomo during his press conference just this morning asked The $64,000 question. How much is a human life worth? Very complex question given the circumstances. His answer was “human life is priceless”. He would add, that his reopening plan has a circuit breaker. As soon as the levels of the virus go up the State closes again because human lives matter. So where am I going with this? As I said in the beginning I wouldn’t want to be the President.What happens in the next month will define his legacy. It will cement his place in history till the end of time. What price has he put on human life.That question might not be difficult to answer. The answer goes something like this.. the models were predicting around a hundred thousand deaths by August as recently as 10 days ago. Some models are now predicting more than twice that. 3000 deaths a day. If that were to happen it would be like having 9/11 every single day. Not everybody is like Governor Cuomo. There’s a big election coming up in November, exactly six months away. I believe the answer lies somewhere in between the quandry questions and is based solely on politics. The president believes, based on his actions, that 100,000 extra deaths are acceptable to keep the country economically afloat. Personally I don’t agree but it’s not my decision to make, and Donald Trump has an election to win. What to do? It seems to me this is a decision that can’t be made by a man but has to be dictated by the universe. I agree with Governor Cuomo. Every single human life is priceless. If you don’t believe that talk to the next of kin of the last person who died of Corona.

The financial problems we’re having here in the USA are real. So many people are still out of work and many of them have gone back work this week or will be going back next week. They’ll be a price to pay for that. The alternative is not feeding your family. There are certain things that we here can help you with during this very very strenuous time.

The “Spit” is starting to hit the fan! What happened to the money?

I think I’d like to start here by saying that I hope that Steven Mnuchin is right, and all the people out there are going to get that $1,200 stimulus in the next couple of days. I know that everybody needs it and if you’re on this site I know that you folks need it too.you wouldn’t be looking for payday loan consolidation companies if you weren’t in debt.I still have hope for that program and I believe that it’s going to happen. I hope for the sake of all who need it I’m right.

There’s something else that I’d like to talk about here and it’s a classic government screw up at best and hopefully it doesn’t turn into who put their hand in the cookie jar. My politics don’t matter although I do lean a bit to the right. At this moment the White House has egg not just on its face but all over the building. What happened to small business covid-19 loans? The following information is as of this morning April 13th 2020 at 9 a.m. Based on polls the government has sent out 2.5% of the payroll protection loans that have been applied for. Shame on them. Shame on them for not setting up the system better. But it gets worse. Out of those 2.5% the 20 million dollar Max load just doesn’t exist. The average speed from application to approval is 5.7 days.

The median company size that’s being helped has 14 employees and the median load size is $79,000. Large Banks like JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo to name a few are non players. 88% of these loans have been given out by small regional Banks. The government issued a statement along the lines and I paraphrase that the initial plan was overwhelmed with large requests and there would never have been enough money to satisfy all the companies in need. Well, I got to call BS on that one. They’re bad players in every game. If the government would have taken the time to set parameters and had a concrete way of enforcing them things would have been different. It is in times like these that the good in most people come out but unfortunately there’s evil out there too and some people were trying to take advantage of the system. Now, it still gets worse.

The bipartisan bill that was passed in Congress provided for loads up to 20 million dollars per business based on revenue and employees.How long did they say the money was going to last and where are they going to find more money in Washington to further subsidize these programs? Their solution is despicable. Just to summarize it the maximum loan isn’t 20 million dollars anymore. It’s not 10 million or even one. It’s $25,000. This is a akin to you winning the lottery, saving your family and their home and just sitting waiting for the check to do it. Instead of the $100,000 that you won they said you a hundred bucks and say sorry we ran out of money. I got to call BS on that too. If you look at the accompanying chart you’ll see the amount of employees and the amount of money that’s been lent to these companies.

Keep in mind two things. These charts AR not scientific they are based on polls.as I scan the charts the first thing that hits my eye is the proportion of the amount of money that was asked for by the business as opposed to their gross dollar intake. A lot of it seems disproportionate to me.in other words these companies are asking for too much money but the flip side is is their owners are guaranteeing the money with good credit. If these companies are not getting the money where is the money going? Remember, only two and a half percent of these loan applications have actually been funded. Right next to that chart is the received EIDL GRANTS. This stupidity guaranteed advances on every single PPP loan requested at a minimum of $10,000. That part it itself reaches the outer limits of absurdity.

To guarantee loan applicants $10,000 before their credit was checked and their loans were approved could be construed as negligence by the law makers that conceptualized this program. Based on a small sampling even this incredible screw up didn’t work the way it was promised. The average payment speed of these grants what’s 14 days so far. The median company size is seven employees and the median Grant size is $7,000. This is something I saw coming all along. I’m talking about the EIDL GRANTS. I never saw the PPP system screwing up but it did. So now you have hundreds and thousands of people, perhaps billions sitting and waiting for their Grant. Yet it’s never going to happen and the worst part about this is that there is a clause in this bill that the president signed that guarantees the advances within 3 days. The administrators of this program at the SBA have broken the law. I could play this game all day long and take it on a long road of finger-pointing forever. As more time passes more information will come out. What incredible gross negligence. 

And by the way. One half of 1% of the people that requested a grant have received one. All of this makes me wonder. Where exactly did the disconnect start? Are lawmakers living such an incredibly protected existence since the day their daddies bought them through college that they don’t understand how money and business works? Or, in the alternative, are they just too freaking stupid to understand, or are they just playing politics and don’t really give a spit? Where is all this allocated money going? We are talking about 350 billion dollars out of a 3 trillion-dollar total allotment of government funds put out there there to save and bolster the economy during this incredibly tough time.

Is this just a case of gross malfeasance or is it a case of fingers in the cookie jar. Nobody knows that, YET! There are a couple of things that I know for sure. There haven’t been enough mainstream complaints for the government to have to come out and make a statement about this.YET! It really doesn’t matter at this point if this is stupidity or something a whole lot worse.YET! You can rest assured that no matter what’s caused this problem that neither our president or any member of his cabinet, or any Democrat or Republican on the hill has any urge or inclination to discuss this. This is our government working for us. So let’s get back to basics for a moment here.

All about Payday Loan Consolidation!

*Can you put payday loans into debt consolidation?

Of course you can. There are companies like Federated Financial that only specialize in payday loan consolidation. Old established companies like Federated have great working relationships with your creditors. in most cases your creditors will reduce your interest rate down to 0% consequently getting you out of debt in a much shorter period of time. This is the reason that people consolidate their payday loans.

*Is payday loan consolidation legit?

That’s kind of an offshoot of the first question we received. We receive many questions, every day about what we do. Payday loan consolidation is legit. It’s been going on for years. Payday lenders will almost always work with our company because they know we’re reliable. Federated Financial is 23 years old with an A+ rating from the BBB. Unfortunately they’re always bad actors out there. They’re not legit and that doesn’t help you get out of payday loan debt. When consolidating your payday loan you need a company that’s old and established like Federated Financial. We’re honest, we’re respected in the industry, and we really care about our clients!

*How do I get out of payday loan debt? 

That seems to be the question we’re asked the most. When you’re deep in Payday loan debt, sometimes it’s hard to conceive of getting out of the trap. Interest rates can run you up to 700% annually and you feel like you’re financially buried. Sometimes it’s hard to think rationally when you have financial difficulty. Here’s how you get out of payday loan debt. You’re on the right site, right now! Federated Financial‘s payday loan consolidation program works!

payday loan consolidation

Consolidate your payday loans and start living your new life today!

*Will payday loan consolidation hurt my credit?

In most cases, payday loan consolidation won’t hurt your credit, but it won’t help your credit either. Payday loan lenders usually don’t report payday loans to a credit bureau except if they’re delinquent. The only things that happen when consolidating your payday loans all work for you. Your interest rates are reduced enormously. Payday loan interest rates customarily run between 200% and 700% annually. Payday loan consolidation can in most cases lower your interest rates down to 0%. This keeps you from remaining in the cycle of constantly rolling up one payday loan into another. Paying off payday loans certainly doesn’t hurt your credit. It helps you to maintain whatever credit you have.

*Can you add payday loans to debt consolidation?

Of course you can! Debt consolidation is simply taking all your debt and rolling it up into one monthly payment which is dispersed to your creditors at a reduced interest rate. Anything unsecured is almost always accepted into a payday loan consolidation program. Given the state of our economy, especially now in the time of coronavirus, many people are running into payday loan problems and needing to consolidate their payday loan debt. Federated Financial is a 23 year-old A+ rated BBB company. We have a tried & true formula that can help you get out of debt at a greatly reduced cost, over a shorter amount of time than you could negotiate for yourself. Debt consolidation of your payday loans works!

*Should you consolidate your payday loan with a personal loan?

That is a subjective question. Everybody has their own opinion. I’m going to tell you why consolidating your payday loans with another loan makes very little sense. You wake up one day and you decide you want to consolidate your payday loan. If your credit is still good you might very well be eligible for a debt consolidation loan which in turn will consolidate your payday loan. My question is, why consolidate one high interest loan with another? Instead, just consolidate your payday loan with a debt consolidation program. That way in most cases, you’ll be replacing your high interest loan with a no interest debt consolidation plan. We’d love the opportunity to explain it all to you! Please feel free to call us anytime, and we can show you a quicker and less expensive way to get out of payday debt then borrowing more money!

Movie theaters in the United States are not coming back!

Everything I write here I truly believe. Seriously. In my opinion the movie theater business will never come back for quite a few reasons. A little over a month ago when they started to shut down there was no place to see new releases. Then the studios did a curious thing. They started releasing smaller movies, or off-season filler to the two major streaming services Amazon Prime and Netflix. Amazon Prime costs $120 a year and Netflix is $15 a month or $180 a year. Along with Fox news and CNN, AND your local stations that’s all the TV anybody needs. Cut the cord! That’s a post for next week! So the studios have released these movies to streaming services. They’re not big movies but they’re fun movies and they are brand new releases. Amazon charges $19.99 to rent a brand new theatrical release for 24 hours. It makes sense. Think about it. Dinner for two, $50. Beverages in the movie theater $20. Your tickets $30. When did Movie theater night become a $100 deal. Stay at home, pay twenty bucks and have your own bathroom, your own food, your own pause button and if you get tired in the middle turn it off and finish it in the morning. In addition you’re not sitting next to a total stranger who is screwing around with his phone during the movie, chomping down on his food and making a racket, and refusing to discipline his unruly child. Is this experience worth $100? Not to me. Now the movie theater business has been married to the studios for over a hundred years. The antiquated business model still remains. I don’t entirely blame the theaters for charging a ton of money at their concession stands. When the studios release a blockbuster, the theaters don’t make any real money until that movie is out four or five weeks. It works on a sliding scale.after the first few weeks, depending on the cost of the movie the theaters make more and the studios make less. Again, it make sense. Some of these big movies have budgets of well over two hundred million dollars. Somebody has to pay for them. Consumers pay when we’re paying at least $15 a ticket and the theater pays all of it to the studio in the beginning. The only way theaters can make money is at the concession stand. Their problem not mine. Change the model. Now let’s talk about big movies that will not be released on their release date. I’m talking about the new James Bond film. I’m talking about the Top Gun sequel, Maverick. Marvel films Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson and the one I’m looking forward to the most, West Side Story, due out at Christmas time. Does anybody really believe that we will be back in the movies at Christmas time? And the next question would be is that what the studios want? Think about it. if anybody believes that coronavirus will be completely eradicated by this coming Christmas they’re wrong. This country and the rest of the world will not be well until there is a vaccine that prevents this disease, and we’re looking 18 months down the road. Studios have laid out billions of dollars to create movies. They’re going to want their money back. Who wants to walk into a movie theater where everybody is masked, people are sitting 6 feet apart and everybody worries if somebody sneezes or coughs? We go to the movies to relax and to get lost in a 2-hour fantasy. The scenario I mentioned is not conducive to relaxing. I am not going!!!!!!  Worst case scenario is that I see it streaming 3 months later but is that what’s really going to happen? What happens if they reopen the theaters and people don’t come back the way they used to? The studios have an out. The streaming services that rent their movies 3 months down the road would be glad to take the new release and stream it from day one. Even if they charge $35 for a rental it’s still cheaper than taking your wife or your family to the movies. Imagine watching Black Widow at home! To me it’s a blessing. I don’t like movie theaters. I can’t control my environment. I’m talking about the people that are sitting next to me and the noise they make. Human beings are inherently afraid of disease because of our survival instincts. Six months from now people are not going to be going to the movies. This problem is not going to be indigenous to the United States. Take China. Chinese people love American Cinema. Box office numbers bear that out. Having said that and after seeing how the coronavirus ravaged their own country, I’m sure that the Chinese people would more than likely prefer to sit at home like I do and watch my movies there. In addition, studios make a fortune all over the world with their total take . Every country in the world streams video these days. Why is there still a middleman and I’m referring to the movie theaters? It’s really not necessary. Movie theaters as we know them have become completely obsolete! We live in a world where 50-inch television sets cost $300 and they are 4K television. Arguably a better picture than you see on the screen.

Somebody out there please tell me the advantage of going to the movies? Even if people wanted to go would they be able to go given that the coronavirus will come back in full force in the fall or winter. It has to. We are opening up too soon. We are trading human life for money. It will be interesting seeing this play out but I can’t see any reason whatsoever why Netflix and Amazon can’t start advertising the latest James Bond film in October for release during Christmas week on their streaming Networks. It’s time to close the theaters. Do the studio’s really want to bank on movie theaters being open in December and do they want a bank on people coming back even if they are? If they do their gambling billions of dollars Just a bunch of stuff to think about. I believe I’m right.

And now we move on. The country is reopening bit by bit starting with Georgia yesterday and by the 1st of May many states will be following suit. People are going back to work and that means two things. Paychecks, and collectors trying to get their hands on them. If you’re on this site you’ve been thinking about payday loan debt consolidation.

stop politicizing covid19

Catch the Chris and Andy show, 9 p.m. CNN

I must confess. I don’t watch CNN very often. Lately I don’t watch Fox either. This whole situation is way too politicized to get a fair and unbiased report on anything that goes on. There is one piece of absolutely compelling television that’s on two or three nights every single week. Chris Cuomo does his show weeknights at 9 p.m. Chris has also been down for the last two and a half weeks with coronavirus. To his credit he still does his show from his basement every single night. It has been obvious that he has been sick. What he’s doing is extremely comforting and inspirational to others who have this virus too. He’s upfront about all the symptoms. I mean everything. That would include depression, and even hallucinations.

In his position, talking about these things in front of millions of people is very brave. He has developed personal relationships and friendships with other coronavirus patients, and speaks with them on the phone during the day. He humbly says that it helps him as much as it helps them. I believe that. He’s frightened and he admits it. Thankfully he is slowly recovering. He also has a very interesting guest that joins him a couple of nights a week for long and informative interviews. His brother. Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York. Critics say that Chris Cuomo pulls punches when asking his brother questions. I don’t see that at all.

The governor answers each question in a very deliberate fashion, and I’ve noticed a couple of things. It’s clear that he’s not looking to pick a fight with the President at this point in time. That’s not always been the case and these two go way back. It’s still interesting television. He’s been extremely deferential to the President and to the federal government. Of course, the love between the two brothers is really obvious and fun to watch. These guys know each other so well. Of course they do, they’re Brothers. As of today Chris still has a touch of the virus. He said to Andrew last night,” bro, I’m still sweating”. Without missing a beat, the governor of New York replies “it’s called a fever Chris. “the back-and-forth repartee and  barbs, and banter are hilarious. It’s the best TV out there right now.

New topic. I just finished watching the President’s press conference. All three phases of his Reopen America plan. I am not a purveyor of doom and gloom  and I know there’s a lot of mixed opinion about this, but I fear he’s opening up a Pandora’s Box. I hope I’m wrong. Regardless, if you’re reading this post on this site you’re here for a reason. You’ve been thinking, how do I consolidate my payday loans? It’s time to think about that.

Leave it to our country’s leaders to politicize the biggest tragedy in 102 years…

Read this. It affects you. President Trump has his mind set that this country needs to reopen by the 1st of May. People get it. They understand why. Or, at least they understand why he feels that way, but it might not necessarily be right. In the case of coronavirus the cure is in the process of destroying the patient.

Our economy has seen a nice bounce-back over the last week and a half but, it’s certainly not time to put people back to work in many places. The President has come out and said that the final decision rests with him which is in direct contravention to the Constitution. The 10th amendment specifies this fact. Governor Cuomo of New York was very specific about this. “Earlier Tuesday the governor told NBC‘s “Today” that the power to reopen state economies clearly sat with their governors as defined by the 10th Amendment to the Constitution, which states that powers not clearly designated to the federal government fall instead to the states.” If you have your nose to the news, many constitutional attorneys have come out and agreed with Andrew Cuomo, who is an attorney himself. At the governor’s briefing today he was very specific about not wanting to politicize this problem but wanting to protect the people first. A coalition of East coast governors including Republican Governor Charlie Baker from the state of Massachusetts have formed kind of a coalition coming forth to say that the decision is ultimately there’s as to whether or not their state gets reopened, and they will do what’s best for the people of the states they govern. Donald Trump came out this morning on Twitter calling these governors mutineers. Not very Presidential. Shame on him for that. He’s a bright man who does know better.

Governor Cuomo went on to say at his briefing this morning, and I paraphrase, that the President has been extremely responsive to him and the state of New York and the last thing he wants to do is go to war with Washington. He wants to leave politics out of this discussion and concentrate on the people only. He went on to say that he has no axe to grind with the President and would only oppose him if President Trump were to try and override his decision as to whether or not to reopen New York to business. It’s an interesting situation that bears watching. I will say that after all I have watched and read about this, all these governors have an open and shut case. The 10th amendment clearly gives the power to local government. When our founding fathers wrote the Constitution they had come from a Monarchy and had no desire to create another one. There was never supposed to be a king in America and there never has been. So will some areas start to reopen and go back to work? If they do your payday loans will become a problem. You will need help consolidating your payday loans.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. You’ve come to the right place. if you need help consolidating your payday loans we are the company to use. We’ve been in business for 23 years and we’re highly rated at a plus by the BBB. Payday loans are a tricky thing.

consolidate my payday loans

Is it time to Consolidate My Payday Loans?

I had someone email me the other day and ask that question. She wrote, “please tell me why is it time to consolidate my payday loans“? She goes on to write that she didn’t understand that during this crisis when cash is short, why would she be giving money to a payday loan lender.

This is what I told her. I reminded her first and foremost that she borrowed the money. I reminded her that she has a legal obligation to pay it back and also reminded her that her lenders could sue her. Clueing her in to the fact that I’m not an attorney, I explained to her if they were to sue her and win, her life could be made miserable. I explained to her that when creditors obtain a judgment they can go after many things that belong to her as long as they are unencumbered by a pre-existing note, or state law.

Furthermore, I went on to say, if she were to be sued, one of two things would happen. She’d either not appear and her creditor would receive a default judgement against her, or she would appear and based on payday loan lender paperwork that I’ve seen it would probably be open and shut. She would lose and could be responsible for lenders attorneys fees as well as hers. The flip side there is that a good attorney might just be able to find the hole in the paperwork. Did the Payday Loan company charge her too much money in fees based on her state’s law? Were they licensed to do business in her state? There is no perfect contract. In many cases there are holes.

I went on to say that despite all that, at the end of the day depending on the amount of money that was owed, it might just be less expensive to pay it off and be done with it. And that goes back to her question of why now? Well why not now? At the rate of interest that payday loan companies charge which is up to and including 700% APR every day she waits costs her money. But, here is the kicker. Using a good payday loan debt consolidation company would show you why the time could be now to get to work and fix the problem. Let’s take a really good company that’s extremely well respected with 23 years of experience and and an A plus BBB rating. A company like ours. Given our years of experience we know how to do it. In almost all cases we are able to have your creditor reduce your interest rates down to 0% putting you in a position to be able to pay off those payday loans in a much shorter period of time.

In other words we can get you out of debt quicker. I’d venture to guess that in many cases the interest on your payday loans has exceeded the actual cash balance that you originally borrowed. That’s insanity. The country is going to slowly come back online over the next month or two. That’s why consolidating your payday loans now should be done to avoid falling further behind. It’s time to start thinking rationally about the reality of your debt.So for everybody that’s reading this post I would say, ask yourself why would I want to consolidate my payday loans? ….. and consolidate my payday loans now? The answer is very simple. Each day you wait makes it harder and more expensive to get out of debt. Is there any better reason than that?
