    I keep my cards in my leather card wallet, but it’s finally starting to come apart at the seams, and harden and crack, and is needing replaced.

    The problem I have is trying to find anything similar online. Most wallets only hold 12 or so. The ones that hold more only have plastic slots and are rated by purchasers as easily breakable and flimsy.

    I need the wallet to hold:
    (1) Bank card
    (2, 3) Credit cards
    (4) Student ID
    (5) Student discount card
    (6) ILA card
    (7) Library card
    (8) Provisional Licence
    (9, 10, 11, 12) Points/Reward/Loyalty cards
    (13, 14) Store cards
    (15) Further ID
    (16, 17) Medical information
    (18) Train discount card
    (19) Membership card
    (20) National Insurance

    I carry all these cards because if I decide during the day to apply for a course, or to visit a store or travel after 5pm, the trip home to collect individual cards is so long it makes another journey pointless, and it is easier to carry ti all with me.

    I need a wallet small enough to fit in my jeans pocket. I am fine with it being quite chunky when full, but the passport holder sized ones are too lengthy to fit. I prefer black but it doesn’t matter really. I don’t want one that is combined with a phone cover or purse, or one of those aluminium cases. If at all possible, I’d like to pay under £20 for it.

    Been on eBay but can’t see anything that quite fits.

    Please do not spam the question as I report all non answers or abusive remarks. Please include a link if you have one to a wallet (in the UK only) that might fit my needs.

My aunt bought this 37$ t-shirt i designed for the concert and she said shes NOT buying anything else for me, she bought it cuz my parents wouldn’t. My parents wont give me money they said i have to do chores. Now I have

I told them i wanna do 10 chores a day and theyre like “well theres not much to do around here and your not getting paid for everything and when the concerts over your still doing chores and all the money you get you cant spend all of it at the concert cuz i know how you are because if you waste it all youll want more money to go out with friends and im not giving it to you and blah blah blah” I mean its my OWN money i EARNED it so why cant I spend it on WHATEVER i want??? URGHH.. My question is how can i make 200$? I cant go to family members houses and do chores for them cuz they live 3 hours away. My neighbors arnt very friendly and dont like teens because my friend offered to mow their lawn and they basically threw a fit like ALL the neighbors did. I cant babysit because im just not the type that likes lil kids and babies and knows what to do with them and etc.. JUST NO! I try to make friends with my neighbors it doesnt work. Im not throwing up fliers either about like yard work car wash etc. I need to know how i can make 200$ AT HOME?
    I was thinking of doing a mini yard sale but I dont ahve tables to set up outside so i would be sitting on my driveway with a shoebox to collect money BY MYSELF. I have NO siblings and my friends are ALL busy. I would get my cousins to help me out except theyre 3 hours away and theyre 4 and 2 years old. I wanted to sell my bath rug for 20$ and my shower curtain for 30$ my posters for 10$ and some other things and my dads like “no your not selling anything! no-one is gonna buy your sh!t” i said cant you give me a chance and he said “NO UR NOT DOING IT END OF DISCUSION!” How do i convince him??? AND I looked on eBay and you have to have a credit card for the person to pay you back my parents wont give me theirs THATS out of the option. Is their any website you sell your stuff and they send money TO YOUR HOUSE?? I dont know what else to do??? I cant have a lemonade stand because they wont go out and buy lemonade mix and we dont have lemons and we dont have plastic cups either.

    Hi i am packing for a trip and I was wondering about some things…
    How do you prevent over packing?
    How do you prevent under packing? (I usually do one or the other)
    What are things I cant carry in my carry on?

  • Rod says:

    I know that plastic bags are harmful to sea life and our enviroment, and I have started to use more cloth bags. (well i only have one) But listen. I really want to make a difference, but I’d like to know if there’s another way other than simply using cloth bags. I’d really like to know… But this question isn’t just for me. Here it is: How can people start using cloth bags more and how can I help the cause?

  • Abbie says:

    I am a 21 year old student and applied for a Discover Student card and was shocked at how much they gave me. I intend to never go above gas & tuition billing.

    I only have federal student loans and a loan borrowed directly from my university (not federal) on my account. They didn’t even ask for proof of income, although I make $900 a month.

  • Melanie says:

    I’m about to apply for an Amazon Student Visa Card, which will be my first credit card. Here are the reasons why I’m applying:

    **I’m a student in college who is *very* stingy with cash and getting a credit card solely for the convenience (mostly online but somewhat outside too).
    **Due to personal (non-deliquent) circumstances I cannot have a checking and savings account in my name so I cannot get a debit card.
    **I do not want to go through/depend on another person and would not like to disclose my purchases to anyone other than the company.

    Also, if I don’t use my credit card for a month or two will I have to pay some chintzy “administration fee” or something likewise because I chose not to charge anything that month? Answers to my question and credit card tips appreciated.

  • Stan says:

My friend got approved for a Best Buy credit card tonight and his credit isn’t that good. However, I just want a main card(for example: visa, discover) and not a store card. Thanks for any help.

  • Voncile says:

    I want a credit card with a good balance tranfer offer. Six months at 0% will do fine.

    It might be nice for it to be otherwise a good credit card too because I might pay the balance off in about a month and still want to use the credit card.

    I already have a Amazon credit card with Chase so I think I need to use a different bank.

  • Carter says:

    I’ve been thinking about and writing this novel for two years, and I’ve already gone through two drafts of the first few chapters. In short, it’s about an inherently obediant high school valedictorian who longs to be spontaneous and who goes on a whirlwind trip thoruh Europe with a young man who perfectly fits who she wants to be. But then she must settle back into the life that she has to have because of her personality: college student, wife, mother, unextraordinary, while attempting to maintain nothing more than a friendship with the man of her dreams. Anyway, I’ve started re-writing and this is what I’ve come up with:

    If the end justifies the means, I will never understand why people go to such lengths for family. If you ask me, families are more trouble than they’re worth, and I’m sure Machiavelli would have agreed with me. All expectation, imagination, and pretention. A group of people who continually hurt each other, while still dutifully sending birthday cards and putting up with each other’s company. Like estranged friends or divorced couples forced into the same room, who truly have nothing in common but continue with the niceties for tradition’s sake, or for the sake of the children. But children grow up quickly and are more observant than they are given credit for. It does not take long for them to understand that family is nothing more than a charade, no more real than Santa Claus, and they begin to play along like the best of them. A viscious cycle of broken hearts and poker faces through the generations of nostalgic people who hope that if they act well enough, the facade will become real. Far more trouble than it’s worth in this short life, yet every fictional character’s problem, from Jane Eyre to Harry Potter, seems to be their lack of a family, and their ultimate quest is either to find one or make one. It makes me wonder if this is more wishful thinking on the part of the authors, or if some families are really that desirable.
    I suppose the shells of my family look happy enough: two parents with steady jobs who have been married to each other for twenty years, their one almost-grown up daughter who gets straight A’s, a pale green house in a quiet suburban neighborhood in Virginia, a family pew at the church we’ve been attending since I was born, a row of family portraits on the wall showing the three of us in sweaters, our faces and bodies bearing the weight of additional years from frame to frame. Although these seemed to be the prerequisties for a perfectly happy domestic environment, I found my family life incredibly hollow, like a brightly colored plastic egg that a child eagerly picks up on an Easter egg hunt and opens, expecting a coin or jelly bean, only to find it completely and distrubingly empty.
    Families are always made out to be such strong entities, but truly they are quite fragile, like a spider web, easily torn apart by a careless swipe of the hand. The part that my parents could never quite understand is how easily the web of precarious connections could be repaired with the thin, fleeting, strong fiber of natural love. They don’t understand that an apology or an affectionate look can completely re-weave the family. If the structure itself is inherently weak, the builders are only made stronger in their determination to keep it intact. Neither of my parents were willing to take on that labor of love, that constant balancing that goes along with being a family, and so we remained a trio of strangers living under the same roof, each attempting to create our own support systems within ourselves, and never truly succeeding. As any student of biology will tell you, a group of organisms living in the same ecosystem can either cooperate or destroy each other. There is no way for living things to have absolutely no relationship with each other, given their proximity. No matter how hard my parents tried to remain distant, we constantly affected each other, and because they were unwilling to support me, I always knew that our only option was destruction.
    To Amb_writes:

    Thanks so much for the praise! It’s certainly encouraging. I understand what you have to say about going on and on about the one topic of family, but truly, this is one of the critical conflicts throughout the entire novel, and it does eventually lead to more actual plot and dialogue. Also, Caroline (that’s the character’s name) is extremely bitter about her family life and prone to dwell on such issues.

    As for toning down the vocabulary and making it more relatable, I have to admit that my beloved character is not a very relatable person. She is well-read and uses large words and makes obscure allusions. She is not particularly gifted with social skills or with telling stories, and I’m trying to make this novel seem like it takes place inside her mind…as if SHE were telling it directly, not through me, and therefore she will carry on a little and be slightly pretentious. That’s just who she is as a character.

    Thanks so much for the advice and support!

    I’ve bought a nice transparent plastic cover for my passport. It’s got a space for a credit card, and the cover is tight-fitting so I can secure money between the cover and the passport. Would I be able to leave the cover on when going through security/boarding the plane, or do most airports (Heathrow and JFK specifically) require you to present the passport out of a cover? It’s awkward to get on/off, so I’d rather know in advance. Cheers!

    ps anyone telling me to “try Google or look on the website” will be appropriately dealt with…
    Just to clarify for the first commenter, I’m aware that people have to be able to see inside your passport. Hence me saying it’s both transparent and a cover… I’m not a moron, I’m aware that you can’t just flash a closed passport to get through customs.
    Aaand to clarify for the second commenter: thank you for writing such a long, detailed answer. However, it still doesn’t answer my question, which is: are you allowed to have a transparent plastic cover on the spine of the passport? The product in question is http://passportjacket.com/.

    I am going snowboarding soon in Sweden. I have already snowboarded once before for 2 days and today I was indoor for 2 hours. I have some questions though:

    -What protection do you really need? I will absolutely wear a helmet and probably some knee protectors I still have. But, when trying a 50/50 today indoor I fell backwards on my hand and now I have a painfull broosed wrist… I have heard about impact gloves and they sound good but I have a limited budget and I already have good gloves so I would like cheap but good protectors, doesn’t matter which form. Do I have to equip myself with more protection?

    -I have a normal jacket which doesn’t have any ski-jacket functions but it fits nice and is warm and flexible (its a superdry one). But what is a clever and comfortable way to keep my liftpass with me? I can’t take it out of my pocket everytime, that is irritating and cold.

    -Since I fell backwards on my hand, what is a good and safe way to fall backwards? For forward falling I have read that you must make fists and fall on your forarms, is that right?

    -Last question, I turn the way like I saw from snowprofessor. For example a toe turn: front foot pressure on toes, then back foot pressure on toes, then turn your knee in a bit. My friend however told me that is wrong and you should just turn with your hips. I dont really use my hips, I just let them naturally follow the movement.

    Thanks for answering my questions, it would help me a lot. Basic tips are always welcome! :)
    Note; I am a 14 year old girl, weight 55 kg and 1,67 cm long.

    “We didn’t have fast food when I was growing up,” I informed him. “All the food was slow.”

    “C’mon, seriously. Where did you eat?”

    “It was a place called ‘at home,'” I explained. “Grandma cooked every day and when Grandpa got home from work, we sat down together at the dining room table, and if I didn’t like what she put on my plate I was allowed to sit there until I did like it.”

    By this time, the kid was laughing so hard I was afraid he was going to suffer serious internal damage, so I didn’t tell him the part about how I had to have permission to leave the table. But here are some other things I would have told him about my childhood if I figured his system could have handled it:

    Some parents NEVER owned their own house, wore Levis, set foot on a golf course, traveled out of the country or had a credit card. In their later years they had something called a revolving charge card. The card was good only at Sears Roebuck. Or maybe it was Sears AND Roebuck. Either way, there is no Roebuck anymore. Maybe he died.

    My parents never drove me to soccer practice. This was mostly because we never had heard of soccer. I had a bicycle that weighed probably 50 pounds, and only had one speed, (slow). We didn’t have a television in our house until I was 11, but my grandparents had one before that. It was, of course, black and white, but they bought a piece of colored plastic to cover the screen. The top third was blue, like the sky, and the bottom third was green, like grass. The middle third was red. It was perfect for programs that had scenes of fire trucks riding across someone’s lawn on a sunny day. Some people had a lens taped to the front of the TV to make the picture look larger.

    I was 13 before I tasted my first pizza, it was called “pizza pie.” When I bit into it, I burned the roof of my mouth and the cheese slid off, swung down, plastered itself against my chin and burned that, too. It’s still the best pizza I ever had.

    We didn’t have a car until I was 15. Before that, the only car in our family was my grandfather’s Ford. He called it a “machine.”

    I never had a telephone in my room. The only phone in the house was in the living room and it was on a party line. Before you could dial, you had to listen and make sure some people you didn’t know weren’t already using the line.

    Pizzas were not delivered to our home. But milk was.

    All newspapers were delivered by boys and all boys delivered newspapers. I delivered a newspaper, six days a week. It cost 7 cents a paper, of which I got to keep 2 cents. I had to get up at 4 AM every morning. On Saturday, I had to collect the 42 cents from my customers. My favorite customers were the ones who gave me 50 cents and told me to keep the change. My least favorite customers were the ones who seemed to never be home on collection day.

    Movie stars kissed with their mouths shut. At least, they did in the movies. Touching someone else’s tongue with yours was called French kissing and they didn’t do that in movies. I don’t know what they did in French movies. French movies were dirty and we weren’t allowed to see them.

    If you grew up in a generation before there was fast food, you may want to share some of these memories with your children or grandchildren. Just don’t blame me if they bust a gut laughing.

    Growing up isn’t what it used to be, is it?

    MEMORIES from a friend:

    My Dad is cleaning out my grandmother’s house (she died in December) and he brought me an old Royal Crown Cola bottle. In the bottle top was a stopper with a bunch of holes in it. I knew immediately what it was, but my daughter had no idea. She thought they had tried to make it a salt shaker or something. I knew it as the bottle that sat on the end of the ironing board to “sprinkle” clothes with because we didn’t have steam irons. Man, I am old.

    How many do you remember?

    Head lights dimmer switches on the floor.
    Ignition switches on the dashboard.
    Heaters mounted on the inside of the fire wall.
    Real ice boxes.
    Pant leg clips for bicycles without chain guards.
    Soldering irons you heat on a gas burner.
    Using hand signals for cars without turn signals.

  • Scottie says:

    I’ve been thinking about and writing this novel for two years, and I’ve already gone through two drafts of the first few chapters. In short, it’s about an inherently obediant high school valedictorian who longs to be spontaneous and who goes on a whirlwind trip thoruh Europe with a young man who perfectly fits who she wants to be. But then she must settle back into the life that she has to have because of her personality: college student, wife, mother, unextraordinary, while attempting to maintain nothing more than a friendship with the man of her dreams. Anyway, I’ve started re-writing and this is what I’ve come up with:

    If the end justifies the means, I will never understand why people go to such lengths for family. If you ask me, families are more trouble than they’re worth, and I’m sure Machiavelli would have agreed with me. All expectation, imagination, and pretention. A group of people who continually hurt each other, while still dutifully sending birthday cards and putting up with each other’s company. Like estranged friends or divorced couples forced into the same room, who truly have nothing in common but continue with the niceties for tradition’s sake, or for the sake of the children. But children grow up quickly and are more observant than they are given credit for. It does not take long for them to understand that family is nothing more than a charade, no more real than Santa Claus, and they begin to play along like the best of them. A viscious cycle of broken hearts and poker faces through the generations of nostalgic people who hope that if they act well enough, the facade will become real. Far more trouble than it’s worth in this short life, yet every fictional character’s problem, from Jane Eyre to Harry Potter, seems to be their lack of a family, and their ultimate quest is either to find one or make one. It makes me wonder if this is more wishful thinking on the part of the authors, or if some families are really that desirable.
    I suppose the shells of my family look happy enough: two parents with steady jobs who have been married to each other for twenty years, their one almost-grown up daughter who gets straight A’s, a pale green house in a quiet suburban neighborhood in Virginia, a family pew at the church we’ve been attending since I was born, a row of family portraits on the wall showing the three of us in sweaters, our faces and bodies bearing the weight of additional years from frame to frame. Although these seemed to be the prerequisties for a perfectly happy domestic environment, I found my family life incredibly hollow, like a brightly colored plastic egg that a child eagerly picks up on an Easter egg hunt and opens, expecting a coin or jelly bean, only to find it completely and distrubingly empty.
    Families are always made out to be such strong entities, but truly they are quite fragile, like a spider web, easily torn apart by a careless swipe of the hand. The part that my parents could never quite understand is how easily the web of precarious connections could be repaired with the thin, fleeting, strong fiber of natural love. They don’t understand that an apology or an affectionate look can completely re-weave the family. If the structure itself is inherently weak, the builders are only made stronger in their determination to keep it intact. Neither of my parents were willing to take on that labor of love, that constant balancing that goes along with being a family, and so we remained a trio of strangers living under the same roof, each attempting to create our own support systems within ourselves, and never truly succeeding. As any student of biology will tell you, a group of organisms living in the same ecosystem can either cooperate or destroy each other. There is no way for living things to have absolutely no relationship with each other, given their proximity. No matter how hard my parents tried to remain distant, we constantly affected each other, and because they were unwilling to support me, I always knew that our only option was destruction.

  • Jacki says:

    my unit was robbed last night while i was sleeping…
    and they took about 200 – 300 dollars in cash. however, they didnt take any electronics such as laptop, phone, or ipod. is there a reason why they only took cash? maybe because all the electronics were on my bed not like the money that was far from my bed.

    but the funny thing is that they came through my door. and i specifically remember having locked my door and checking before i slept. and when i woke up, i found the door unlocked and half open.
    can robbers unlock doors that easily?
    and there are 2 locks on my door and both of them were unlocked :/

    now, im really scared to sleep and leave the house.
    how can i prevent this from ever happening again?
    and is it likely they will come back?

    p.s i dont have an alarm or a dog…unfortunately.

    thank you :)

    I have found plenty of websites that talk about making them out of plastic bags, but not one of them explains how to do it, or shows pictures or anything. I really don’t understand how a plastic bag is going to stay on a duck. I know about the websites where you can buy them but I don’t have a credit card so that is not an option.

    Just to be clear – these are generally outside ducks, they have a duck house and a pond, but sometimes they want to come inside. I would not leave a diaper on a duck all the time, I just need something temporary for when they do decide to come visit the house.

  • Dusty says:

    ITS ME, THE ONE WHO ASKED THE QUESTION!

    1. I have never done a loan before… That’s why I asked about them

    2. I have a Lense Crafters card to pay off, an old and turned off credit card to pay off, and an old shut off cell phone bill to pay off, with a grand total of $1,241 to pay off… AND my fiance has two old cell phone bills to pay off as well with a total of $600…

    3. I don’t work… I attend college full time

    4. I do however recieve S.S.I… $850 a month

    5. My fiance does work 30-40hrs/a week at McDonalds… and is also in school part time and gets paid every other week $350ish…

    6. My fiance and I live in my mom’s garage… only half the size of the garage is our home… There’s dry wall seperating us from the car parked inside…

    7. We pay $250 to live there

    8. Living here for 6 months so far and staying for another year to pay off things and prepare to live on our own

    9. My mom wants me to be careful with money so she gets my S.S.I… And I get $55 of it every Monday and Friday… NO EXCEPTIONS

    10. That’s $1,900 (sometimes less) a month for rent (once a month), school expense’s, food (every other week), and bare essentials… (when we have enough money)… Not leaving much for those other needs such as a new bed (two people on a twin = Major back problems and constant falling off or one of us sleeping on the floor) or a dresser so that we can finally see the floor (we have a side table as our dresser… two people with a two drawer side table for a dresser… ??)… We don’t even drive! No car! Walking and bus fare for us, which isn’t so bad after a while…

    And no we aren’t too young, He’s 20 and I’m 21…

    Getting the point to my finance problems?

    We need some help on this, fast…

    How does this affect your credit score:
    Using credit card and always paying off balance right away
    Using credit card and paying off balance after you get the statement
    Using the credit card and making the minimum payments after you get the statement

    Note sources or experience please.
    Thank you guys. But can someone clarify the difference between paying before and after you get the statement? A source would really help. I don’t like conflicting info esp without a source.

    I am looking for loose individual plastic sleeves that are not sold in sheets or as wallet “inserts.”

    Specifically, these would be:
    – horizontal in orientation
    – sealed on 3 of 4 sides
    – with an opening on one of the sides (not the top)
    – ones that include a thumb notch, which make it easier to insert and remove cards from the sleeves.
    – large enough to fit a standard size credit card or ID badge.

    Have looked all over the internet without luck – anyone know where I can find these?

    PLEASE HELP!!!

  • Louie says:

    I often hear Christians complain that the secular community is out to destroy faith. Yet when I look at the way public issues surrounding faith are approached by secular people and compare them with the approach of Christians, I see one side as being totally reasonable while the other is not.

    Christians always seem to want affirmations of their faith by the government, where people seek no such affirmation; they seek neutrality.

    Christians argue in favor of “God” on our currency. I’ve never heard a secular person argue that our currency should say “In no God we trust.” The secular people only want a neutral position that favors neither side.

    Christians want “under God” to remain in the Pledge, even though it wasn’t in there originally. No secular person to my knowledge has ever argued that we should pledge as “one nation, under no God.” The secular person seeks neutrality; leave the opinion of both sides out of it.

    Secular people do not run around declaring America as an atheist nation, or a nation that is non-Christian. They argue that we’re simply not a Christian nation, and our Constitution and founding documents make that point very clear! A secular person again adopts a neutral position; we’re neither Christian nor anti-Christian. Very few Christians seem to be willing to acknowledge that fact and continue to put words in the mouths of the Founding Fathers.

    On areas where we actually have reached a neutral position, such as prayer in schools, this is not acceptable to many Christians who see this as a bad thing. No secular person wants kids to be subjected to a denouncement of God in class; they just want their kids to show up to school and learn; pray on your own time or in your own mind. This is a totally neutral position, but if you polled Christians you’d find that most have a problem with it.

    On Gay marriage, the secular people do not want to force churches to recognize or perform gay marriages, yet the Christians don’t want religoiusly neutral Judges to even perform a legal ceremony.

    Why do Christians demand public affirmations of their beliefs while secular people do not? As you can see from the debates on this very site, the opinions run strong on both sides, yet the secular side has long sought nothing more than neutrality on these public issues. The Christian side, on the other hand, refuses to compromise.

    I am not looking for affirmation of my beliefs here. The points go to the Christian who can offer me the best explanation.

    Thanks.
    Jake, we didn’t have God on our currency until the 1950’s. There are zero references to God in the constitutions. The reference to “Nature’s God” in the Declaration of Independence is born of enlightenment theory and natural law philosophy. Jefferson borrowed heavily from Locke’s work. This is not a traditional reference to a biblical God.

    jewess, our founding fathers did not come here for religious freedom. Let’s not confuse the Founders of the nation with the first settlers on the continent. Virginian’s like Jefferson and Washington came here to make money. People like Franklin left the religious areas of New England to go to a more neutral Pennsylvania. Some founders were devout Christians, and some saw it as a pox on mankind. They were a mixed bag, just as we are today.

    James, yes, an absence of God from the public sphere. This is not a renouncement of God; it’s simply silence.

    Buff, our country was founded under a belief in fair taxation. England was religious.
    Thanks, James. I’ve looked for more information on some of what you’ve said.

    The lesbian couple sued because they were denied use of a camp ground that the Church rents out for public events. They were not looking to get married in the church. The law states that you can’t discriminate to whom you rent something. A business can’t deny renting you a car because you’re gay and I think that’s a legitimate law. The church is acting as a business when they rent the campground and therefore need to comply.

    On the person who refused to film the lesbian couple, that case is in appeal and based on what I know I hope they win the appeal.

    I’d love to see a link on anyone who has been arrested for speaking of their faith in a graduation ceremony. The courts have been mixed on student led prayer, and I think we could probably agree that there is a fine line between legitimate expression and proselytizing.

    I’d love to see a link on someone jailed for praying in public.
    I still don’t see the strongest parallel between your examples and having God emblazened on currency, or recited daily by kids in a classroom. You cite isolated examples, some of which I’m asking for some proof, while my examples touch every American every single day of their lives.

    Evolution is the accepted scientific theory on the origin of life. There is no science in religious based theories since they hinge on a supernatural explanation, and there is no room for the supernatural in science; period. I’m sure you realize this. This is not discimination.

    Obama wanted to teach children about inappropriate touching. It was not about the act of intercourse.

    We’re not a Christian nation because Christianity is not endorsed in any part of our founding documents. God is not in the constitution at all and that is the sole legal foundation of the government. I’m not sure how anyone reads a document that is void of God and concludes that the country is founded on God.
    “Year of our lord” was the conventional way of dating anything back then. This is not an endorsement of the divinity of Jesus Christ.

    The founders were a mixed bag, but many of the prominent ones wrote scathing indictments of Christianity. The internet is filled with these quotes, and others that conflict with them. I never suggested we were an anti-Christian nation, and many Christians were founding fathers, as were deists, and Unitarians.

    The whole question of our country being founded on Christian values is puzzling. Which uniquely Christian values were the basis for our founding? I can’t think of one, since the only uniquely Christian values are those that relate to Christ, and he is not mentioned anywhere in those documents.
    Angel, I’m not neutral in the slightest, I only seek neutrality on these subjects.

    Yes, we do have the right to vote, but we are a republic, not a democracy, so I can only vote for my representation, not on actual issues. There will be no referendum on symbolic references to God.

    While all of these issues could be resolved through an act of Congress, they won’t be. No elected official can espouse such a view and survive in this country, and I certainly understand that. And perhaps that ultimately answers my question. Christians do not have to accept neutral positions on these issues because they’re the majority and can get away with it. Why give in if you don’t have to?

    I can’t let your last point pass without comment. The notion that because the money “spends” it doesn’t matter what is printed on it is disingenuous. Christians recoil at the prospect of saying NOTHING on money (about God), and that money would surely spend.
    Anyway, you’re the leader in the clubhouse with “we’re the majority and this is a democracy, so live it.”

    If I’m putting words in your mouth let me know.

    I have one card which was closed by the bank and limit on one other were reduced. I am afraid that this will create a “domino effect” and all other banks will start to close my accounts.

  • Jennefer says:

    I got a new credit card in the mail through an airline. I didn’t know I was applying for a card, I thought I was joining the frequent flyer club.

    I have not activated the card. I thought about keeping it in a drawer for emergencies, but the interest is outrageous, so I want to cancel it. If I call to cancel, will that show up on my report as a closed credit card account, or would it not show up at all because I never activated or used the card?
    Earlier this year, I paid off all of my credit cards and have not had an active card for 5 years. I recently got a new card with ample credit and a decent rate. Because I’m a recovering spend-a-holic. I’m fearful of having too much credit available.
    To answer your question Laissez-Faire Guy, I, too agree that the activation is a scam. When I activated my other card, it was an automated process, then they patch you to a “customer service person” who wants you to buy additional services. It was hilarious b/c he was foreign and reading a script. After I kept saying no, he read the end of his script so fast, he sounded like a disclaimer in a car commercial.

  • Robbie says:

    I currently have a TransUnion score of 570 and Experian score of 569 with no credit cards, 17 accounts in good standing (installment loans), and 5 derogatory accounts. I’m working on improving my credit and have learned that credit utilization (credit card balance/CC limit) accounts for about 30% of the FICO score.

    My questions are:

    1. How is credit utilization factored into the score if there are no credit cards?

    For example, since it counts for 30% of FICO does that mean the highest achievable FICO score is 70% of 850 (highest possible score) if no credit utilization or do the other factors have more weight if no credit utilization? Traditionally, the score is weighted: 35% payment history, 30% credit utilization, 10% credit inquiries, 10% types of credit, and 15% length of credit history.

    2. How much can I expect my credit score to raise in the next couple months if I open a credit card and keep utilization below 20%? Will my score increase 30%?

    3. How much will it raise over the course of a year? Will a see a large jump in the first few months as a result of opening a credit card then the increase will lessen throughout the year?<—for example, jump 50 points in first few months then only raise an additional 10 points throughout the rest of the year.

    Okay, so, we live in Hawaii on a military post… it’s not so wierd to get him a nice pair of sunglasses for xmas. However, his favorite brand is blublockers, but, all they have are plastic frames. I want a pair of sunglasses that have the same tinting (and obviously, do whatever blublockers do to prevent sun, which I think they block the color blue or something like that…), but, metal frames.

  • Noemi says:

    Ok, so this whole situation is really complicated, so I’m just going to summarize it:

    -I’m supposed to live 1/2 time with my mom, and the other 1/2 with my dad… But I mostly live with my dad.

    -My mom is really crazy, and has gotten herself into some legal trouble by breaking into my dad’s apartment and taking his credit cards (among other things) She’s also always been kind of mean to me… And it’s gotten progressively worse (I’m not just joking when I say she’s crazy- She has very serious mental issues.)

    -*Just as some background info on her, she used to beat me, has been chronically unemployed, refuses to get a job, is extremely manipulative, and has bipolar disorder, along with chronic depression. She’s on 6 different medications, is going to be kicked out of her house soon, and just lost her car. She borrowed about $3,000 from me because she refused to work, and will most likely be going to jail for a while because of all of the crimes she committed against my dad.

    -Because she’s mean and kind of hard to be around, I took a little break from her (for about 8 days), and stayed at my dad’s without talking to her.

    Now, my school counselor arranged for me to do a job shadow at a funeral home. The dress code is described as “business attire” (which isn’t an issue), but the only problem is that all of my formal business clothes are at my mom’s house. I went by her house today to pick up some of my things, and she refuses to open the door to me. I even hopped the fence in the back, but the backdoor was locked.

    Now, she’s just being difficult… and whenever she gets like this, it’s like dealing with a bratty little 5 year old. My key to her house doesn’t fit the lock so there’s really no way for me to get in. (She had the locks changed a while ago, and I never got a copy of the new key.)

    I really don’t think I’m that bad of a kid. I don’t do drugs, smoke, drink alcohol, get in trouble, have sex, I get good grades, ect., so I don’t think I deserve to be treated this way. I have always tried so hard to make her happy, and i”ve gotten to a point in my life where I don’t think I should have to take care of her any more.
    So, my question is, could I call the police on her… or do SOMETHING? All I want is my stuff from her house.
    Oh, and by the way, I’m 16.

    Hello everyone,

    Next month I am travelling overseas all by myself. I am only twenty years old and have never been on a plane before, let alone experience going through an airport. At the moment, I am pretty nervous about the ‘airport lifestyle’. What happens, exactly? Would anyone please guide me through a step-by-step process?

    I am from Australia and am going for a trip to America. I am wanting to know exactly what happens in an airport. For example, as soon as I enter the complex, where do I go? What do I provide?

    Another quick question: my plane departs at 11:20AM. What is a good time to arrive at the airport? How early should I be?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated and I’ll definitely provide best answer. Thank you!

    My fiance is currently in Nebraska working with his father… Would it be wrong of me to ask for a different ring. I see one I want online and it’s on sale… My ring has about 50+ tiny diamonds. He said he’d upgrade it later, but later seems to be WAAAYYYY later with him now…well, also… i’ve lost 3 tiny diamonds since it was given to me and it doesn’t fit. I’ve lost 35 pounds since he asked me 2 years ago (B2B 7/11/09) He knows about this, and my feelings about it…. i have to keep a plastic band on it. They are not able to resize it due to how its made. I cannot take it to be repaired as He never insured it.
    I’ve already brought it up… Now that I look again, I’ve lost 4. AND I’m not a gold digger. We’ve been together for 7 years, we both work full time. I do not ask him for anything at all money wise…
    I’m not even looking for a carat engagement ring… Should I keep wearing it and let it continue falling apart or get another? I know not wearing anything will hurt him so that’s why I continue to were it missing stones and all.

  • Jodie says:

    So I really want this nice jacket. Its from a movie and I have been looking for a good replica not a cheap alternative that doesn’t look like the one from the film. I have been looking for a few days and I found one that looks exactly like it! But the picture is the same picture of the exact jacket from the movie that sold for over $20,000. Im really worried they are just showing that picture but then it will be a cheap plastic leather jacket that doesn’t look anything close to the one in the movie. But its just a basic jacket anyone who knows how to make them could.

    Can they do that? Can people selling things online show pictures of high quality items but they give you something crappy?
    thank you guys for the great answers! :-)

    Im a 16 year old girl and going to the UK for the first time in June through a program at my school for 10 days. Its actually my first time being out of the United States so im really excited! We are starting out in Edinburgh and spend a little time in Scotland, but the majority of the trip is spent in London. Since my school has most of the trip structured out I wont have too much free time to go and see whatever I want, but I do get half a day to roam around in London! So ive got a few questions…

    -What should I bring for such a long plane ride? How do I adjust to the time zone changes? What should I bring as far as clothes for the weather in the UK in June? Do I need to buy a plug converter?
    -What are some cool things to do in London (and not just the touristy things)?
    -Are there any stores I should go to or any things I should buy or try (Im getting some AP magazines while im there :)).
    -How do I fit in with the locals?
    -Are the people in London nice to tourists?
    -Should I exchange my money or just get a credit card?

    Im just trying not to look like a stupid american tourist, and have some fun on vacation. Please help!
    Thank You :)

    I have 2 credit cards and they’re not even that much. I’ve been paying every month to reduce the balance but after interest charges, it seems to go straight back up. I recently checked my credit score, and it’s in pretty OK shape. I know if I get another credit card, my credit limit will be enough to cover for both debts. My plan is to just get a new credit card with no interest for one year and pay them off then cancel my other 2 credit cards.
    Is that a safe idea? Will it affect my credit score (negatively) that much to do so?

    Ok, so I leave this coming Friday for France and Spain. I will be in each country 5 days. And right now I have no idea how much I should pack, or what I should bring. And of course I have procrastinated till the last moment to do it. So, here I am asking what I should take.

    In the list could you include the majority of everything I would or could need and should have? Thank you so so much. =]

    Whoever answers this is a complete life saver.
    I am going to be in Paris, Versailles, Toulouse, Carcassone, Barcelona, Zaragoza, and Madrid.

    Weather is supposed to be in the the 60s to 80s. =]

  • Elliott says:

    I’m 26 and this is my first time ever flying. I am going from Cleveland, OH to Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I have some questions and I am hoping someone can answer my questions please.

    1. I have a layover in PA, do I have to get my luggage in PA or will it go to FL?

    2. For a carryon bag – what size is okay?

    3. I bought my ticket through travelocity and I pick my ticket up at the airport. During the layover do I have to get a new ticket – how does that work?

    Any advice for a first time flyer is greatly appreciated. I am nervous. I am traveling alone so I am unsure of what to expect. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help.

  • Mi says:

    A family member suggested I get a secured credit card to help build credit for myself. I figured this was a good idea, however, upon looking USAA also has a student credit card. Which one would be a wiser idea for a 18 YO college student to apply for and use for small purchases (I was thinking of just using it to buy gas or occasional groceries)?

    For reference, here is the student card:

    here is the secured CD card:
    https://www.usaa.com/inet/pages/banking_credit_cards_secured_credit_card

    I should note I have no credit, and haven’t applied to either yet.
    Thanks for the detailed answers, all! Going to go for the secured card, and use it through community college then advance to an unsecured card!

  • Danial says:

    i had a thought of credit, but im unsure if a debit card is a credit card. i used my debit card ( when i had a job ) to withdraw money from my account. i had left $18.34 i wanted to take out $10.00 dollars for a purchas without taking my card with me. but when it asked how much withdraw it only went up to $20 dollar withdraw. so i withdrew 20 and owed my bank 2 dollars. that ended up going up within a few months. my question is does that count as credit? if so i didnt know and i do have a bad credit score…lol thanks and no rude comments please, it was my first time having plastic and didnt have a clue how to use it. i got it cause a friend told me it better to lose plastic than to lose all ur money ( bills ) if i got jumped..

    hey im new to the job world and i got guardian dental insurance and i think its comes with free vsp too. and the guardian insurance worker told me i’d tell them my social security number and tell them i have vsp to qualify or something. im going to go to a private office that accepts vsp. i want to get an eye exam, get 1 pair of prescription glasses and contact lens fitting and contacts. i dont have a credit card yet so i plan to pay with cash but i dont know how much to withdraw out of the bank to bring with me. i live in georgia, near atlanta by the way. or should i just go to lenscrafters or visonworks or something like that? could you give me an estimate of how much each would be when using vsp, if you have it? and if i used the insurance would i have to pay all the amount there and the insurance company would evaluate my claim and send me money back..? i dont know so how would that work too. thanks for your time in advance.

  • Jacquline says:

    Wireless credit card terminals continue to gain popularity among small and large businesses.Historically, mobile credit card terminals have developed hand in hand with all the advances of the cell phones industry.In short, wireless credit card terminals (or virtual credit card terminals) offer the merchants very convenient way to accept debit or credit card payments outside of the office, warehouse or any other place of business. In addition, recent developments and technology made it possible to have the wireless credit card terminals only without any need to install a regular stationary “point of sale”.So the only things a merchant needs are the smart phone and a wireless credit card terminal.

I want it solely for the purpose of having good credit. Thanks.

    Hello, Recently I became interested in getting a credit card. I have no credit and I want to build some. I only have a debit card so trying to decide which credit card I should get is tough. I was hoping to get an amex or mastercard , but any other card would work for me (would prefer not to get a visa). I’m good with money so paying it off wouldn’t be a problem. I wanted a card with a low APR rate, low or no annual fee and benefits. Any suggestions?
