  1. I love this board. You may not get the answer you want but it is always astute information. Always. If people are looking for a quick fix, this is not the place. But if you are really willing to put in the time and effort to LEARN the right way to handle credit issues you will go far and be successful over the long term.
  2. Instead of drilling and piling it on, maybe it's best to understand the fact that everybody has their own frame of reference, and respect that. No one is right or wrong on this argument, and no amount of "drilling" will change that. Wow, late pot stirrer. Nobody piled on BW to scar her for life. She didn't have much insight into racing as a sport, and now she does. She asked for other people's opinions and she got a boatload of them, GF style. Now she's happily fluttering around other thread, motorcycle-enlightened, and you're still here trying to insitgate stuff. It takes a few or ten pages of cramming, oops I meant "drilling" to help people see the light. Carry on...

  4. I'm not saying it was right or wrong, but I can understand them wanting to get the word out to Peter's FB fans, knowing rumors were probably growing already. Also, it's possible the family had someone else posting for them. Yeah, I know it sounds lame. We are not meant to bury our children. I can only imagine what the parents must have been going through. But with that said, Facebook is not something most parents would have even thought about. And I'm coming from the perspective of a parent. Not the parent of a famous child, not a parent seeing my child die doing what he loved, simply...I parent that just lost a child.

  6. I honestly don't understand why people can't disagree here without the vitriol that seems to follow.
  7. As parents we desire and encourage our children to be the best at what they want to do in life. With that said, some parents do take that to the extreme (and there are plenty of reality shows as proof). Recent Studies show that the brain does not mature until mid to late 20s, so until this time, it is our job as parents to weigh risks and make decisions/suggestions that will help/guide the child to fully understand the consequences of his or her actions. Just like the Hippocratic oath doctors take: First, do no harm. Finally.... I do NOT think the parents of this child expected him to die nor do I think they were negligent. He had a talent which was being supported but unfortunately, this looks more like a tragic accident.
  8. Too bad he couldn't afford cocaine. Lighter sentence from the jump and a slap on the wrist.
  9. He was non-white. The sentencing discrepancies are enormous. Had he had lighter skin he'd have gotten 30 days + probation. Welcome to America. I couldn't agree more, but I will add that socio-economic disparity is where the rubber meets the road. Since a large majority those who "have not" have darker skin it's a fair correlation, however I still maintain that this is a "have" and "have not" issue more than skin color.
  10. I agree with Lab. Glad he is free now. Kinda explains CA's over populated prisons if this is the type of punishment handled down. I just hope being in that environment didn't turn him into a real animal. Let's face it...NO rehabilitation is happening in CA prisons. If you aren't an animal when you enter, it's highly likely you will be when you're released. It's almost a necessity just to survive.
  11. I honestly don't know what I'd do without this place.
  12. i just got my notice today so I really need to know if it reports a limit b/c I JUST took advantage of a BT offer. I'm calling them TODAY to keep my old card.
  13. Thank you!!! I think I will do a 15 and keep it. One question....will I be able to purchase a new home if I have this one? The reason I am asking is because my son will live in this home and I will get a new one. He is just starting out but is very responsible. He is planning to move into an apartment for $800/month but he asked if he could rent this home if I decided to move closer to work. Thanks again for your help!
  14. Here is my current situation. I have been living in my existing FHA financed home for 11 years at 7% fixed interest. I plan to stay in my home and keep it for my son who is 24. Should I do a FHA streamline loan? I owe 100K and the home is appraised at 140K The other thing I might do is sell within 3 years. Would it still be worth it?
