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.

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.

*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!

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. 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 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. You will speak to a certified counselor who has been well-schooled in how to handle your payday debt. You will be given the parameters and if you agree with them you will give us permission to help you out. The first thing we do is tell you exactly how, and how much we can reduce your monthly payments. Much of that reduction comes in the form of having your interest rates lowered to 0%, in most cases. That’s the place that the large monthly savings begins. We have pre-arranged agreements with your lenders that allows you to make your payment through us and save money. We have been in business for 23 years and that longevity along with our A+ BBB rating gives us the credibility to work with your lenders and help you. They know if we tell them that they’re going to get paid in most cases they will. You make your first payment. All the paperwork goes out to your creditors.

At this point the phone calls stop. As you go along and make your payments you’ll notice that the balances are dramatically dropping. This is what you want to see. The bottom line is that we can get you out of debt in a shorter amount of time that you could do so yourself and at a greatly reduced interest rate which helps to lower your monthly payments. Our country is getting closer to reopening. Payday loan consolidation companies are more essential now that they’ve been before. There are more people in debt now than there have ever been. Good payday loan consolidation companies do their job well and really can help you. What do you look for when trying to find good payday loan consolidation companies? You’re looking for longevity. Longevity equates to a good strong solid track record.That’s the type of payday loan consolidation company that you need when trying to dig out of this debt. You’ve come to this site for a reason. As we all start our new normal over the next few months it’s time for all of us to reassess our finances and use payday loan consolidation to get out of debt.

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/https://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/https://new.federatedfinancial.net/

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/https://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.

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 SmackDown 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. AndradeDaniel 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 the 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.

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 everyone’s 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.

So back to you. What should you do with this money when you receive your first stimulus check? We’ll get it to that in a moment but first, I would like to emphasize what you shouldn’t do with it. Lay low, and hang back on paying your bills. Pick up the telephone. Call the company that finances your automobile. Some automobile finance companies are granting consumers 2, 3, and 4-month payment amnesties given that they’re out of work. See if you can negotiate something that’s good for you. Pay for the essentials. Food, shelter, and electricity reign supreme. If you have payday loans. Advance loan payday loan debt consolidation is available to you. How do you consolidate your payday loans? Where do you consolidate your payday loans? Can you consolidate your payday loans and what companies will you use to consolidate your advance loans? Consolidating your advance payday loans may be an essential thing to do now. That way, when you start making payments you can make them at an interest rate that in most cases would run you about 0% as opposed to the 500, 600 or 700% annually that you’re paying right now. Go to the top of our homepage fill out our form and submit right now. If you prefer, pick up the phone and call our office. Payday loan advance loan debt consolidation really does work.

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.

This post today is very different. Today it is personal. This is the correspondence between me and a local television reporter over this past weekend. I think you’ll find it interesting. Corporate greed at the cost of human safety reigns supreme and IMHO our elected officials continually stuff their pockets with corporate money to look the other way…You decide!

Dear xxxxxxxx

As a 44 year resident of this state and the  area I have always felt as though all the local television reporters were old friends. You guys are in my home every day and always instill a calm and steadying influence on me and my family during the toughest times. I go way back with WPLG. Back to the Gxxx Rixxxxx, Axx Bxxxxx and Wxxx Cxxxxxx days. Back in 2001 a new test came out and I suppose out of curiosity Dxxxxx Lxxxxxxxxx tried it and reported on it. It was a Calcium Heart Score test and it was because of Dxxxxx that I decided to try it too. I found my experience at this facility, which was using a fledgling technology to be considerably less pleasant then Dxxxxx`s I wrote to him about it, and to my complete surprise I answered my phone about a week later and heard that deep resonating voice that I knew so well on the other end. He was kind enough to look into my story and backtrack a bit on the story that he reported. I was also lucky enough to do some work about 20 years ago to help raise money for Dxxxx Mxxxxx`s, Mxxxxxx force. I only mention these interactions to emphasize the point that I genuinely believe that Channel xx cares.

I just finished reading the article you penned with Lxxxx Axxxxxx regarding manditory closures in our area. I want to digress for a moment and tell you that my son is a manager at a local Auto Nation Dealership. I’m writing to you instead of him, because this email would cost him his job and Auto Nation Pays their managers well. The managers and sales personnel at all of these stores are being put in grave danger by our (local?) Government. During the last week I have been hoping that a publically traded Company like Auto Nation would do the right thing and lock their doors when the governor was asking businesses to close. That never happened. When I read that manditory closings would be instituted, I was confident that an auto dealership wouldn’t be considered an essential business. After reading your article I was completely blown away. How in Gods name can the moron who decreed that the sales centers that are adjacent to every dealership’s showroom are one and the same with the dealer? Of course I am aware that service and sales are owned by the same company and that ARGUABLY mechanics are an essential fixture during a global pandemic. Although I don’t believe they are, who is this person who believes that car sales must go on? Obviously it’s a ranking government official who drafted this edict. My next question to you is why? Why are car dealerships staying open and facilitating the spread of this virus? When you take your car for service you pay in the service department. Someone made a mistake or is getting paid off big time. My son has told me that there have been rumors spreading in management that there have been two cases of the virus reported at the Mercedes of Miami, AutoNation Store. I don’t know if this is true but if it isn’t, it will be soon. The concept of big business screwing it’s employees is certainly not new. We all know that. I can tell you that every person in every AutoNation showroom including all managers are commission people, consequently AutoNation pays nothing to keep these showrooms open. I was hoping as a follow up to your article, and that given AutoNation’s home office is right here in Ft. Lauderdale you might follow up with a phone call or two and find out what’s going on there before someone actually dies.Thats usually the way it works. Someone has to die to get something done. I greatly appreciate you reading this. If you decide to do a quick follow up please don’t mention my name. My son and I share the same last name. It would be easy for him just to quit but he can’t. He and my daughter in law make really good money and own a beautiful home. The American Dream? He’s really caught in a catch 22, and so are the men and woman who work with him. Please get back with me if you possibly can.

Sxxxx Mxxxxx

PS. FWIW, I can tell you exactly how the governor could shut down all Native American gaming in the state in ten minutes . …IF HE REALLY WANTED TO. I really know the answer. Just another greed driven situation. I have no problem with casinos. I am an avid Poker Player. I just have a problem with what these giant petri dishes are doing to our communities and the people who live here right now.   FOLLOW UP TO THIS ARTICAL( The Governor closed all casino’s yesterday. )

AND SHE REPLIED

Hi Sxxxx,Thanks for the heads up….As it happens, I met an auto salesman picking up his dry cleaning Thursday, who seems torn between showing up for work as a responsible employee – and staying home in response to the common good.  I put a clip of that interview in my report that night. We are getting a lot of emails from people seeing nonessential businesses still open.We’re on it- Thanks, Gxxxxx

AND I REPLIED

Hi Gxxxxx, I thought I’d do a little research…..food for thought…..more then ever our governor needs to answer this question. Why?…. in one of the articles I read their reasoning for wanting to stay open. I read that a prolonged closing of their dealerships would put them out of business. For God’s sake everybody’s out of business right now. What raises these automobile companies to deity status? Does money always supersede life?… This is the world we live in today. By the way, I wanted to tell you that I was looking for that piece you did where you put in a (blurb) about that automobile salesperson, and I tripped over that horrible story about that person who pointed a gun at you. My God what a horrible experience.  I could never begin to imagine how frightened you must have felt. So very glad you’re OK. Keep yourself safe. As a former New Yorker, and it’s been a long time, I learned early on to always have eyes in the back of my head. I’ll not bother you with this anymore I’ll let you do your job. Just take care and be safe. Sxxxx Mxxxxx

AND SHE REPLIED

Thanks, Sxxxx – I’ll try to find some answers for you …

To all who are reading this here is the question. When does life and good health begin to take precedence over money. You have a huge greedy Corporation and elected officials who obviously are knuckling-under to the Auto Dealer lobby. Crisis really brings out the best in people. Yeah right!

So my final thoughts. Government sucks. Plain and simple. Our whole system is awful. The reason I posted those screenshots, and those are the shots that I sent to this reporter who incidentally is a lovely human being and ….through the years, every reporter I’ve had interaction with at this station has been just great. If you live in the south Florida area this is the station to watch and I’ll say it’s WPLG. I just redacted names, that’s all. We are in a crisis right now. People are scrambling to eat. These are dangerous times and they’re going to get worse before they get better.
