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.

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.

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!

The two big Northeast power blackouts, the consequences, and suggestions for the blackout we are going through right now!

In the summer of 1977 New York City went dark. Yeah, I’m showing My age again. It was a hot summer day and the power went out. This wasn’t the first time this happened. It happened in 1965. It encompassed the entire Northeast coast. It was in November and it was so widespread that people thought the absolute worst had happened. This had never happened before. The connection is that 9 months after these two blackouts occurred there was a baby boom. People found something to do in the dark and it wasn’t watching The Tonight Show. I’m not suggesting we all go and make babies during the coronavirus outbreak, but I am suggesting that there are ways to enjoy life during an emergency. Yesterday, I blogged about the best streaming shows to watch over the next few weeks. My opinions but, what the hell? Everybody’s got them and this is my forum to give them. The other thing I thought about this morning was music can make the soul sing. It puts a smile on your face. It can make you happy… Listening to an old song can make you forget about today and bring you back to yesterday even if it’s just for three short minutes. All those memories! So, I put together a song list of the HAPPIEST songs from each decade, 60s through 2010s. I don’t remember the 50s because I was too young.. the sixties, I remember a lot! Given that most of us have personal assistants all we have to do is say “hey Google”, play ___________________ , and it does. I’m going top 40 here. Consequently, we’re not going to do anything classic. No Beatles no Stones, and no Who… I’m going to leave stuff like that for another day. We’re going happy and poppy. Songs with lyrics that rhyme and put a smile on your face while you’re singing along! Here we go!

1960s

Happy Together, The Turtles, yep, The Turtles! If you’re old like me you remember. You also remember the words.
Imagine me and you, I do I think about you day and night, it’s only right, think about the girl you love and hold her tight, so happy together! Everytime I hear that song it puts a smile on my face! (1967)
https://youtu.be/9ZEURntrQOg

Walk Like a Man, The Four Seasons, it’s hard to get that song out of your head once you hear it.

Oh, how you tried to cut me down to size by telling dirty lies to my friends, but my own father, said give her up, don’t bother, the world isn’t coming to an end!

Every time I hear that song on an oldies station I sing along. It’s catchy, it brings me back to when I was a kid, and it makes me smile (1963)          https://youtu.be/AF4KQbiBrKU


I’ve got to do one more from the 60s. It might be the happiest 60s song of all.
Good Morning Starshine, Oliver,Technically, this was a song from the Broadway show Hair. It was released in 1969 by an English singer who went by his first name only. The words are infectious.

Good Morning starshine the Earth says hello you twinkle above us, we twinkle below Good Morning starshine you lead us along. My love and me as we sing our early morning singing song…(Oliver 1969)

You’ve gotta have a listen…. It will absolutely make you smile https://youtu.be/whmzEXywq40

Now, off to the 70s.. By the way, I could do 60s all day. There are just so many. I picked the first two that came into my head and then I thought of Starshine.. just had to put it in there!

You are the Sunshine of My Life, Stevie Wonder, The thing that makes this song so great is that it stands the test of time. There are very few people that don’t know this song!

You are the Sunshine of my life. That’s why I’ll always be around. You are the apple of my eye. Forever you’ll stay in my heart. (Stevie Wonder 1972) What a great song! Sing along song that always makes me smile. He is so good! https://youtu.be/gZXjFV8nT4E

John Denver, Thank God I’m A Country Boy,Well life on the farm is kinda laid back Ain’t much an old country boy like me can’t hack, it’s early to rise, early in the sack thank God I’m a country boy!!! (John Denver 1975) https://youtu.be/QRuCPS_-_IA

Vahevala, Loggins & Messina. Just a ton of fun. Awesome to listen to awesome to sing! Just so happens it’s one of my top 10 favorite songs of all time. Have a listen!  https://youtu.be/FfV38NOkSHQ

I’m thinking about what I was a sailor, spent my time on the open seas. When we’d stay off the coast of Jamaica, I secretly steal ashore, the natives were waiting for, the boy with the lazy soul. To sing with the Sailor….. This wasn’t a super main street hit but hot damn it is fun. Combination of Rock and Reggae, steel drums and all!.. (Kenny loggins, Jim Messina 1971)
The 1980s, again please remember all these opinions are mine based on what I like and the amount of years that I’ve been on this planet to get to know all of this music. The 1980s was a fun time. I think the best movie comedies ever made were made during the 80s. Anybody remember the name John Hughes? The 1980s was also the decade of some really spectacular music. I’m not talking about that electronic crap either. When anybody asks me to name the best ballad of all time I tell them I can’t because they’re two of them. Paul McCartney wrote a little song back in the 60s called Here There and Everywhere.  https://youtu.be/iELGhAGwBdc

It’s a Beatles song and it’s absolutely beautiful. If you know music and can read music you probably understand this song is extremely unique in it’s structure. 

We’re talking 80s here, and the second song, neither of the two are in any particular order, is  Eternal Flame. It’s a song by The Bangle’s Susanna Hoffs.  (Written by Susanna Hoffs, Billy Steinberg, and Tom Kelly. (1989)
Close your eyes give me your hand, darling do you feel my heart beating do you understand? Do you feel the same am I only dreaming or is this burning an eternal flame?…. Simple lyric, gorgeous melody, beautiful harmony.. https://youtu.be/F9N5R0_wo_Y

Girls Just Want to Have Fun – I come home in the morning light my mother says when you gonna live your life right? Oh Mama dear, we’re not the fortunate ones and girls, they want to have fun!
That’s just one of those songs that make you want to dance! Great memory from the 80s. That’s what it always makes me smile (Cyndi Lauper 1983) https://youtu.be/PIb6AZdTr-A

Take My Breath Away, Berlin – Great song and widely recognized, given that it won both the Golden Globe and the Academy Award for best original song in 1986. Written by Giorgio Moroder, it was one of the big hits to come out of the movie Top Gun…

Watching every motion in my foolish lovers game on this endless ocean finally lovers know no shame.. https://youtu.be/Bx51eegLTY8

I really loved the music of the 80s. I could do 10 more songs from the 80s and 9 of them would be Kenny Loggins movie theme songs. Footloose, I’m All right, Meet Me Halfway and of course Danger Zone from Top Gun. There are plenty more. Perhaps we can do that in our next musical Post.
Into the 90s.. in 1997  Tom Hanks made a small film called That Thing You Do….the film shared its name with the title song and it’s another song with an infectious melody and a really slick lyric…… You, doing that Thing You Do, breaking my heart into a million pieces like you always do! (Adam Schlesinger 1996) another song that’s a whole lot of fun and a great listen, so listen here. https://youtu.be/fzllVlzzeuo

Killing Me Softly, Fugees… The great Roberta Flack’s calling card reimagined  with a reggae and kind of hip hop beat… Strumming my pain with his fingers singing my life with his words, killing me softly with his song killing Me Softly with his song. If you’ve never heard this version you’re gonna to love it… https://youtu.be/H-RBJNqdnoM

I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing, Aerosmith….. From the movie Armageddon!
I could stay awake just to hear you breathing, watch you smile while you are sleeping while you’re far away and dreaming (Aerosmith 1998)I really love this song! https://youtu.be/JkK8g6FMEXE

The 2000s

Poker Face, Lady Gaga. Her first big hit of many….. I want to hold em like they do in Texas, please. Fold em hit me raise a baby stay with me!   (Lady Gaga, 2008) https://youtu.be/40pTk7HMYFw;

 Lady Marmalade, Christina Aguilera, Pink, Maya and Lil Kim. Who cares about the lyric. I don’t speak French and it’s kind of meaningless to me but for some reason this song makes me feel great anyhow. It’s a remake. Patti LaBelle did it in 1975. (2001) https://youtu.be/RQa7SvVCdZk 

Katy Perry, I Kissed a Girl….. I kissed a girl      and I liked it, the taste of her cherry chapstick. I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it it felt so wrong it felt so right! (Katy Perry 2008). https://youtu.be/WR3dBmGEUi4 ;

2010’s

Adele, Someone Like You…. I heard that you’ve settled down that you found a girl and you’re married now, I heard that your dreams came true. (Adele, Dan Wilson 2011) https://youtu.be/hLQl3WQQoQ0 ;                                              

Old Town Road, Little Nas X…… I love this song. It’s a feel-good song. Play it once and it sticks in your head all day!     Yeah oh, I’m going to take my horse to the Old Town road I’m going to ride till I can’t ride no more! (Little Nas X, 2019)  https://youtu.be/amhC8WYgNA4

Shallow, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper… Just couldn’t leave it out. Really popular song and really well done. From the remake of the movie A Star is Born.. tell me something girl, are you happy in this modern world? What do you need more? Is there something else you’re searching for? (Lady Gaga, 2018) https://youtu.be/O8z7q4uPL60

So there you have it. Six decades of feel good music. Watch the videos. Enjoy and to quote a line from a favorite movie of mine that was called What About Bob?, Take a vacation from your problems!

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.

chris cuomo andrew cuomo cnn

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.

chris cuomo andrew cuomo

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. As the country slowly reopens collectors go back to work, and they collect. That’s what they do.

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. The lenders love them because they earn between 200 and 700% interest on most payday loans they extend. Our company, in most cases will be able to lower your interest rate down to zero and get you out of debt in a much shorter amount of time for a whole lot less money. If you need help consolidating your payday loans, please use us! You want to deal with the best payday loan consolidation company out there and remember one thing! We care.

how do payday loans work

How many payday loans do you currently have?.. Have you tried Consolidation?

How many payday loans do you have? That might seem like a strange question but I have a good reason for asking. Payday loans were actually once a good thing. The initial modern day payday loan model was set up by lenders to help out the people who live week by week, when they ran short of cash. I don’t know where or when the model changed. The old model didn’t charge loan shark interest rates. They charged people a moderate about of money to get by until the weekend. People were willing to pay money for that privilege and that’s pretty much real life commerce. You pay for a service. Somewhere along the line the need for greed kicked in and payday lenders became the legal version of the mob. I’ve written articles about this before and if you go a few months back in the blog you can read them.

Did you know? 8 out of 10 payday loans roll over. That’s right. Only 20% of the payday loans that are taken out are paid back on time within the preset guidelines. This is exactly what the payday loan companies want and exactly how their business models have been set up. Repeat customers are their easiest customers to find. Given that 8 out of 10 payday loans are rolled over my question at the top of this post seems very real. It would stand to reason that when a person maxes out their ability to borrow from one lender because they’re busy paying off a loan that has already rolled over, they search for another company and fresh money. It’s an extremely vicious cycle. Eventually, the consumer doesn’t have the ability to pay all these loans back, and they have no alternative but to stop paying, at least on some of them.

That’s when the creditors go to work. There are very few people that walk the earth that have not been deeply in debt at one point in their life, myself included. I remember when I was first married with a baby on the way how short we were of money. I’ve received those phone calls. I remember them. The creditors were no kinder back then. They wanted their money. Collectors are a different breed. Some of them are like rabid animals. Notwithstanding all that, the bottom line is they want their money back and they’re entitled to it. How do consumers pay back loans when their interest rates are running as high as 700% annually? In many cases the answer is they are just not able to pay. At least not all the loans at once. That’s where we come in. We can help you if you let us. Here’s how it works. You fill out the short form on our homepage or just give us a call. We are open, 9 to 9 Monday through Thursday, and 9 to 6 on Fridays. Somebody will pick up the phone during those hours.

Federated Financial an illustrated history of us!

Federated Financial Services incorporated in the state of Florida January of 1998. We’ve come a long way. The world has changed, and almost 23 years of life has gone by. We started small. We were a little debt consolidation agency employing seven people. I never planned for us to grow. Well, not grow that much. I always believed we needed to stay small and controllable. It didn’t work out that way. The problem was unfortunately this country was rife with debt. We had never thought about that. Initially when we started, we advertised in local papers all around the United States. The response was immense. We had no choice. We had to add staff. People we’re calling from all over the country. Then the licensing and bonding process immediately began. It almost put us out of business. These two things were very expensive but we made it through and continued to grow. Six months later we found the Internet. Or actually it found us. I had a website designer come in and tell me that we should be advertising our service because his mother used us and we were great. We bought our first domain. I wanted Federated Financial.com. It was taken. We ended up with ffs – inc.net. Short and sweet and right to the point. Little did I know that my web designer was studying SEO. When the point in time came that he felt his understanding of the process was deep and unique, we decided to create a site and make it SEO friendly. The response was crazy. Our SEO certainly did a good job. We had number one ratings in all the major categories on the one search engine that was relevant at the time. That was AOL which was powered by Excite. We needed more staff. By the year 2000 we employed over 50 people

https://web.archive.org/web/19991104034304/http://ffs-inc.com:80/

We started to grow in and bounds and the industry followed. In 2002 all the creditors we dealt with required us to become certified as an ISO company. I always thought manufacturers were the only companies that had to do this but I realized it was a quality control system, and given that we dealt with large sums of information and money we jumped at the opportunity to become a member of such a prestigious club. And we grew again! In August of 2001 I finally got the domain I was looking for. We were now federatedfinancial.com. Given that people were flocking to us in droves we decided it was time to start from scratch and create a real comprehensive website which said it all. And we did. That site gave us the ability to reach more people and to tell people what we were all about. We were only two and a half years old and we had 30,000 clients. We were also A+ members of the BBB , receiving that distinction in 1999. In addition we were well-established members of the community and of the industry. With an in-house IT staff of six, we felt we were technically the most innovative company of them all.

https://web.archive.org/web/20030419062219/http://federatedfinancial.com/

We needed to change with the times. Business was great and we were doing a hell of a job. We finally knew we had made it. My IT department re wrote our existing software and we prepared for the crunch. We had 50000 clients. As our site became more relevant our position improved on all of the search engines and we literally had hundreds of number 1 positioning online. Only one of the company was doing this at the time. They were good too. That was good for both companies because kept both it staffs on their feet thinking all day long. Everybody wants to be the best. We always considered our clients friends and family. We treated them as though they were our sisters and brothers. That showed in our results. Over 80% of our people completed our program and got out of debt. We still continued to grow and every year the criteria became more stringent for ISO certification. We always passed the inspection. Our quality control department made sure of that. We became very compartmentalized. It felt so corporate. We had 80 employees.

https://web.archive.org/web/20061124142449/http://federatedfinancial.org/

All of a sudden it was 2005 and we were one of the top three companies in the United States. We had over 60,000 clients and a staff of 105. We had an HR department, we had a review department. We had a customer service department. We had every single department you needed to run a big strong credit counseling company and we did. We did it well and we did a great job. We occupied 18000 square feet with a hundred plus employees and the clients just kept coming. We learned firsthand what really was going on here in America. Things weren’t “Rosie”. That’s an understatement. Then came 2008 and 2009. The world came to an end. Our country had a financial meltdown. I thought we’re going to have to throw in the towel. Who would think about paying bills when the markets crashed and the banks were really hurting. The federal government had to bailout General Motors and Chrysler. But, not only did we survive but we thrived. To this day I absolutely believe it was due to the unparalleled customer service that we provided our clients. We always bent over backwards to do the right thing, but in time, everything passes and the country was once again up and running. I liked our website a lot and it served the purpose. It became recognizable. It was almost a symbol of our company and people just knew it! There was no reason to change it cuz it worked. We were a successful company. Nobody complained because we did a great job. Our debt consolidation and payday loan consolidation programs were working and people were relaxed and happy knowing that their bills were getting paid and the creditors were not calling them anymore. We had succeeded in the mission that we started off to accomplish years before. 10 years old and doing our job. I was very proud.

We kept this website in different incarnations for a long time. Probably seven or eight years. Then we switched to the above. This website has been up since 2015 in various incarnations and you’re looking above at the iteration we use today. This website is a vast encyclopedia of knowledge plus information, and we provide that for everybody because there should be no reason people can’t have access to good strong information like this on the Internet.

We are still in business after all these years and we’ve scaled it down a bit. This industry isn’t what it used to be and we don’t have the same volume of clients that we used to, but we’re still quite large and we’re not going anywhere. We have a track record and we have the same ownership now that we had almost 23 years ago.There are more Americans to help and we plan on helping them. The name Federated Financial stands on its own. Everybody knows who we are and I’m proud of that. I created something from scratch and I’m still doing it today. If you need our help and are having payday loan consolidation or debt consolidation problems just please, give us a call. We can help. In most situations we can reduce your payday loan interest from up to 700% annually all the way down to zero. It’s easy if you know what you are doing. After all this time we definitely do. You’ve come to the right page and if you need our help you’ve chosen the right company. Payday loan debt consolidation is our specialty and we can save you lots of money getting you out of debt.

wrestlemania36covid-19

Sunday night, April 5th 2020, WrestleMania 36 at Raymond James Stadium!.. NOT

This is going to be a fun post but I do want to make a large point about corporate greed! Originally WrestleMania 36 was scheduled to be held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. It’s a huge facility and it’s home to the Tampa Bay Bucs. Well, those of you who are wrestling fans know what comes next, and even if you think you do keep reading… you probably don’t. Those of you who don’t watch wrestling, read on too. I think you’ll find this very interesting. I’m going to tell everyone, a whole bunch of stuff that they probably didn’t know. As we all know, the corona virus has rendered all major venues uninhabitable by more than 10 people. Well that’s certainly not enough people to watch a WrestleMania show. They expected 80,000 plus. …….. Government mandate completely pulled the plug on that. But not so fast. The WWE as a publicly traded company and the largest wrestling entertainment company on the planet has their own building right down here in Orlando Florida.


WWE moves WrestleMania 36 to Performance Center amid coronavirus

It’s called the WWE performance center and 1it’s a 20,000 square foot facility used entirely for training purposes. The WWE gave up running big shows in big arenas a couple of weeks ago and instead of closing up shop as many other TV programs have done, The WWE pushes on. They decided that instead of running events in front of 20,000 people in an arena three times a week, they would take it to their performance Center and televise live from there. Of course the problem there is size. Pull out all eight training rings and the facility seats about 200 people. That’s certainly no comparison to the 15 or 20 thousand fans that SmackDown and Raw draw each week… or the five or six thousand fans that NXT brings in… Raw is their flagship show, running 3 hours on Monday nights and Smack Down is televised by Fox on Friday nights.

I relay all this information to let you know just how big this business really is. Right now all three shows are being broadcast from the WWE Performance Center and they certainly would draw 200 fans for each show if they could. The caveat here is that gatherings of 10 or more people are prohibited. That forces the WWE to  broadcast all of its shows every week with no audience. I watched it once. It was really strange. I never saw anything like it in my life. Totally surreal. For the uninformed, wrestling is scripted. Yes, I know I just broke some hearts out there but it’s scripted for sure and that’s really not a secret. These shows from the performance center are being televised live. During a show in a large arena the noise is deafening. Not so much at the performance center. They’re operating with a skeleton crew to protect people and even though wrestling is scripted and the end is predetermined the performers still have the ability to make up the match as they go along. They do this by calling out moves to each other. It’s okay to do that when there are 20000 fans screaming all the way up to the rafters, but on live TV with no noise at all?

https://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news/breaking-update-major-changes-being-made-to-wrestlemania-36

I can tell you this. You can’t hear them speaking but you can sure see them whispering, and most people who don’t understand what they’re doing are just wondering why these people are talking to each other during a match. It’s wrong and it could never look right. It looks forced. Any mistake is magnified and given the physicality of the business there are mistakes made. This is live TV. Surprisingly ratings are pretty stable for the shows and the money is still rolling in. The live shows stink. Half of the show is dedicated to matches that are older, being played back on video, and the two or three live matches in each program are just plain awful. These are performers, and performers work best in front of a live audience. Given that there are no live sports on television now and the ratings are high, Vincent Kennedy McMahon, president of the WWE continues to run his live shows every Monday Wednesday and Friday evening. That’s free Enterprise but at what price?

McMahon is still putting on his WrestleMania show. The grandest event of the year in front of no live audience. The thought of that six months ago would have been impossible to conceive. The audience drives the show. They boo the bad guys and cheer the good guys. The heals get heat and the heroes get love. Now nobody’s getting nothing!!! Given that this is probably an $80 pay-per-view event and there is a WWE Network that’s been waiting for this show for months, the show must go on. But at what cost? Performers have been getting sick at these tapings. Andrade, Daniel Bryan, and Dana Brooke have all dropped out of the show.

They are sick. So have Bobby Lashley and Rey Mysterio. They all have coronavirus. There are others too. There are some performers who have asked the WWE that they remain anonymous. Whoever is paying and watching on April 5th will find out who these anonymous people are. The matches have already been set, and people who are missing will be conspicuously absent. In addition the star of the main event Roman Reigns has dropped out too. As a two-time leukemia survivor this young man has opted out on advice of his doctors. His immune system is compromised and if he catches this thing they fear the worst. This begets the question, in this case why must the show go on? Money!

That was the easiest answer I’ve ever given. Pay-per-view revenue is huge. Yeah, the WWE loses out on the gate and merchandise sales but at least they don’t lose money on the production. Risking young people’s lives, along with production team members just for the almighty buck. In addition, the  fans get a substandard show because the biggest stars won’t be there. For those of you not familiar with this semi sport you must understand that this is the biggest event of the year and every performer dreams about performing in this thing. Those who perform receive enormous paychecks for this particular event. Yet, still more performers are opting out of traveling to the event in Orlando and these are people that will be revealed as the show goes on simply because they will not be there. Sounds like a big mess to me. And who suffers? The performers who get sick and of course the fans.

They’re not getting the best of the best but they’re paying the most of the most. I can tell you one thing for sure. Vincent Kennedy McMahon will not need Advanced loan payday loan consolidation many of you will during these tough times. I wrote this article to be entertaining and perhaps it will take people’s minds off the reality that our planet finds itself in right now. Bills are piling up. Some of us are in way over our heads.

united states stimulus checks

You have some big time money coming in the mail!!! What should you do with it?

Last night, Wednesday March 25th 2020 the Senate passed a two trillion dollar bill, which in theory will aid our country during the rest of this coronavirus outbreak. For both April and May, this bill will pay people who make up to $75,000 a year, $1200.00 Per month. Couples making up to $150,000 a year would receive $2,400. Each child in the household would allow for $500. extra. Some families could receive checks upwards of $3,000 to help them through this crisis. In addition, the people who have lost their jobs and currently collect unemployment, will receive an additional $600 per week, this according to Chuck Schumer (D, NY) This bill was drafted with the intent to insure that laid off workers will receive on average, an amount equal to their full paychecks over the next four months.

THE BILL ALSO INCLUDES ROUGHLY A HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS IN ASSISTANCE FOR HOSPITALS. 350 BILLION DOLLARS IN ASSISTANCE TO SMALL BUSINESSES. 500 BILLION DOLLARS FOR THE  NEEDS OF CORPORATIONS, INCLUDING AIRLINES, AND CRUISE LINES THAT HAVE BEEN HURT BY THIS OUTBREAK….. IN ADDITION, ABOUT A HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS HAS BEEN ALLOTTED FOR STATE AND LOCAL STIMULUS FUNDS.

Senate Approves $2 Trillion Stimulus After Bipartisan Deal photo by https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/25/us/politics/coronavirus-senate-deal.html

This bill was almost derailed numerous times by congressional Democrats, led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. As a Republican Presidential driven bill, Pelosi tried to load a full Democrat agenda into it before it received a thumbs up from congressional Democrats. Based on what I’ve read, there was a lot of give and take and at the end of the day this thing was signed sealed and delivered and ready for a final vote from the House, which is expected to pass the bill today. President Trump has already announced he would sign it immediately. The finished product, although immensely helpful for our nation which is spiraling out of financial control, did have a couple of democratic agenda items put in there before the Democrats would vote to pass it. That includes a 35 million dollar grant to the Kennedy Center. That’s exactly what the country needs during these frightening and uncertain times. Let’s donate 35 million dollars to the arts. These are dollars which could have been way better spent on masks and protective gear for Hospital workers. Nancy Pelosi is a thorn in everyones side. A vile and impotent human being. She should be nominated for Time magazine‘s non person of the year award if they ever make that award available. Shame on her and her agenda. At any rate all taxpayers will be receiving these benefits over the next two months starting around the 10th of April as per Treasury Secretary Mnuchin.

Please Practice Social Distancing, Protection, Prevention of Coronavirus Covid-19

So what do you do with your money? You pay the bills that you select to pay and understand that although the government is paying you it won’t last forever. Put that money in a safe place. If there’s an outstanding judgement pending against you or your spouse, I would strongly recommend AGAINST putting it in the bank. Collectors will stop at no end to collect their MONEY, especially in tough financial times like THIS. They know full well that people are going to be receiving big checks from the government. Hold on to that money. Nobody knows for sure how long this emergency is going to last. Make sure you take care of things using a system of priorities. Food water shelter electricity are all essentials. Keep that in mind. Don’t give in to collection efforts that may or may not end up being illegal during these tough times. As Americans we have weathered many storms before and will survive this one too. Practice social distancing. Don’t go out unless it’s an emergency. Grocery store, pharmacy. There are not many other things I can think of that are more important than that, and certainly not ones that are worth risking your life. Try to limit your visits to the grocery store and try go off hours if you can. Make sure you save yourself from a nasty case of the flu and quite possibly something worse by following the government’s orders and doing the right things for you and your family.
