    WOW to you. Youuuu nutbag

      1. Ayank says:

        Why do you have to have it by Monday? Is there a reason you can’t cnatoct the company who holds your loan and pay it back when you actually have the money so you don’t have to borrow anything?If you take out a cash advance many times there are fees and no grace period on the interest. You need to talk all of that into account before you take it out.

    1. Nurma says:

      Avoid credit card debt like the plugae. If you know that you are going to pay off the balance the next month, then it’s not a problem. You won’t accrue interest.

    2. Affix says:

      Rob, forgive me, but you are an idiot. Wootton Bassett is the itnestg for a respectful and solemn return of the war dead, often attended by the families of those who have died. These young people sent to die went to try to make a difference. It is NOT the place for angry protests and demonstration. Would the Stop the War Coalition have suggested similar activity in Wootton Bassett? no, they would have shown respect. The tradition of free speech is one of the greatest achievements of this country, but it should be viewed as a privilege not be be abused. They can march in central London should they choose. Permission to march in Wootton Bassett MUST be denied on public order grounds.

Plus I need to know how long you have kept track of the record I see on the website.The gentleman that referred me I would trust with my wife so you can thank him for the sale.But I would still like to know more about you no later than Tuesday or Wednesday.Thank you JD

As a result of exploring throughout the the web and meeting tricks which are not beneficial, I thought my life was well over. Existing minus the answers to the difficulties you have sorted out through your entire blog post is a critical case, and ones which might have badly damaged my entire career if I hadn’t encountered your blog post. Your main know-how and kindness in maneuvering every aspect was precious. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a point like this. It’s possible to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for this specialized and result oriented help. I won’t think twice to recommend the website to anybody who should receive support about this situation.

      Believe me dude, any government can be much worse than one can igmniae. When I travel to Asia, only thing I get to hear is how much they respect American citizens for our work culture or rights to women and all, but they clearly say that they don’t trust our government and won’t ever respect. I think we should start accepting that our government can be wrong. I’m one of those Smart Americans who can readily stand against the wrong policies of our government not just praise anything

    2. Sonia says:

      Taking a cash advance is a rorhible thing to do. Mainly because most credit cards charge higher interest on cash withdraws. I honestly can’t think of a good reason to do something like that. The higher rate so isn’t worth the cash you would get.

  8. the crux of the biscuit says:

    It’s called ‘plate tectonics’. Read about it sometime. Oh that’s right, your religious, also a Republican no dount. You folks don’t believe in education therefore reading science (geology) books isn’t an option for you. Then for you, yes, the boogy-man is coming, be afraid, be very very afraid…….

  9. uncalled says:

    why 9-9-2011? what’s so significant on that particular day anyway?

  10. We one of the people says:

    is or are the people in New Orleans/flood victims and other US victims still important and shouldn’t we us them be doing more here and less sending over seas financial aid beings we are so many dollars in the hole why are we always so willing to helping others and not us(United States)

    1. Auth says:

      If you’ve found a loophole that works, more power to you.But, you’re still brorowing money and will be paying interest if you hold onto it for any length of time. You’ll be better off figuring out how to live within your means.

  11. N says:

    That’s not a very accurate claim. If you think about it, no one knows when the end is ever really going to come except God. And there’s a theory out there that is quite popularized–I believe made in the 60s that the world is fixing itself and if you look at the data it presents, it’s actually quite convincing. But, as a counterargument, this theory–like ANY other, will present data that fits to their theories and hypothoses. Look it up and educate yourself before you make belligerent comments.

    1. Sarah says:

      It is very refreshing to see someone make a logical and educational comment! Most people see what they want to see, as long as it will conform to their ideas and opinions. I can’t stand it when people refuse to see all spectrums, that’s just ignorant to me.

      1. Ali says:

        If you were my employee I would say yes but it deenpds on the business and the reason you are traveling. If it is for training then that could make a difference on the petty cash, reimbursement is more common in that case.

  12. N says:

    Why do people insist on being so rude and relentless, and make stupid unnecessary comments, or make irrelevant jokes about this? People died, do you not realize that? You can always sit here and joke about it, or make uneducated, snide remarks about these things because the U.S. didn’t get anything like this, or have been hit to this extent, but if the rest of the world saw your comments and they assumed we’re all that inconsiderate and heartless, how would they respond to a traumatic natural disaster if it ever hit us? You can sit there and mock me or make rude comebacks about what I say, but in the end–think about it, you know that what is said has a lot of weight and truth to it. Think about friends, or people you know that have come from different countries–especially all over Asia, and ask them what there first impressions of Americans were, they were usually surprising and somewhat upsetting.

    1. Sarah says:

      Another excellent post. I can’t wrap my head around how people are able to be rude and relentless about situations like this. I am a pretty sarcastic person, but even I can find zero humor in any of this. I know that when a devestating event occurs here – it would hurt very much to see people who don’t even know me, ridicule and make light of the situation… and I can’t for the life of me, figure out why others would stoop so low.

    2. Eray says:

      Wow some relaly different opinions here. I’ve read everyone’s thoughts and it’s difficult to find flaws in the reasoning on both sides. On balance, I think my own feelings are more in line with James Lovelock’s- if you look at the nuclear industry and the worst disasters that have occurred, these are localised events. The continued use of fossil fuels is a worldwide catastrophe we need to find alternative energy sources now. If this is a greater reliance on nuclear energy, then the longer term aim must be to find safer alternatives. But we do have a pressing need right now to stop producing carbon I think that takes precedence over the potential issues with nuclear power.

  13. Sarah Smith says:

    I was born an raised in Bemidji, MN and lived in Minami Sanriku, Miyagi for 3 years. That town is now gone. You may have no connection or understanding of that place but I do. People I loved and cared about have died. Please show some compassion and respect. I am being as polite as possible.

    1. Sarah says:

      I am very sorry to hear this and my heart goes out to you, as well as those devestated by the earthquake, tsunami, and following aftershocks… among the other things they get slammed with. I pray frequently for those in the affected region and will continue to do so.

    Here in Italy some deep efforts have been done to ucrese historical data to evaluate magnitude etc about earthquakes since the Roman Age. The same could be done in countries with even more ancient civilization lioke China, Japan etc.Scientific research can do a lot where no written reports are present from the past, looking at gelogical evidences (Pacific coast area is a good example). The results could be a reevaluation, more firmly based, of earthquake/tsunami risks.The point is (surely in my country !) : are our politicians so good to plan rules and regulations for buildings, industrial plants, powerplants (nuclear !), and public works to prepare their people to face an event they probably will never see, being in the middle/far future ? In the past centuries, colossal works were done to regulate rivers etc to defend the nations from floods, but there were different ruling class/politicians !Now, the problem of our economic and politics ruling class is to win the next polls, or to cash the next quarter bonuses. Future is for dummies or ordinary people, the think nothing will be so great to hit their power or crash their wealth.Steve
