Fraud Alert: Fake Checks Used for a Variety of Costly Scams
Mon Aug 7, 2017
I was selling a stove on a web site. A scammer wanted the stove and offered to pay much more for it and told me to pay the extra to the people who would come pick it up. I knew what was happening so of course I agreed. I was express mailed a large check, and reported back to the scammer that I got i …
Bob Dylan Wins the Nobel Prize in Literature

I think Al Gore also won an Oscar and a Nobel Prize. Oh yes, and a Grammy.
Couple's Lawsuit Seeks $5 Million from Apple Over 'Wi-Fi Assist' Feature
Fri Oct 23, 2015
Within 10 seconds after this feature appeared, the internet exploded with warnings to turn it off so you didn't get data charges. Everyone in my plan turned it off; it's an unnecessary feature. Frivolous lawsuit.
Will Congress finally act on gun reform?
Sun Oct 4, 2015
The logo no longer says Up with Steve Kornacki. It just says Up. This is not good. Hey MSNBC....enough is enough. You are on in my office all day every day. But not for much longer.
VW's Stock Plunges After Diesel Recall, With More Woes to Come
Mon Sep 21, 2015
The outcry for this, and not for the slap on the hand for GM and the ignition switch deaths is nuts. People DIED because GM hid details. Why will VW face billions in fines and potential jail time when GM gets away with practically nothing.
Consumers Have Scant Choices When It Comes to Set-Top Pay TV Boxes
Tue Aug 11, 2015
We live in a semi-rural area. FIOS cable was installed more than five years ago (right through my front yard) but we can't use it because our town has an exclusive agreement with Cablevision. Choice has been taken away, service is terrible, and costs are ridiculous. We need good internet for work, c …
Road to Retirement Can Be Tough for Many Americans
Mon Mar 23, 2015
My pension (after 12 years) was too small for the company to keep, so it got turned over to me and I bought stock, which during the downturn I had to sell to live. Bankruptcy, food stamps, etc., have followed. Retirement? I'm old enough, but it's not going to happen for me unless the lottery fairy h …
Class in America: Why Your Status Depends on Where You Live
Thu Mar 19, 2015
I moved from Westchester County 10 years ago. Started the trek north and looked at 65 houses before finding one in Dutchess County that seemed reasonable. Today that house is no longer reasonable and taxes (while half of Westchester's) are ridiculous. Looking to move to the greater Seattle area. I'm …
American Dream Home: What's the Middle Class Without a House?
Tue Mar 17, 2015
Our house is a nice prison. Just about everything we make goes to the mortgage, taxes and insurance. And oil/electric. But we can't sell easily, since a sale would barely cover the mortgage, and we'd end up with nothing. Ten years ago we put 20 percent down and then lost all the equity in the crash. …
Are You Ready to Retire? That Depends
Thu Mar 5, 2015
I am 59 this year and would love to even think of retiring or doing something different. I have worked for myself for 25 years. But I can't afford it and at this rate, will never be able to retire. Maybe someday...especially once I get out of New York!
