Sunday, unexpectedly, we lost one of our own.  After a sudden diagnosis of liver cancer just two days before, our very own mama Breeze lost her battle with this disease and passed away on Sunday afternoon.   She passed peacefully surrounded by her family.
 
We know that many of you will be as devastated as we are to learn of this, and we know that you will share in our grief.  We will be in the Feedback forum with you, sharing our memories and our tears.  We encourage you to join us there.
 
We started on this journey fifteen years ago - breeze, Pam, LKH, and radi8.  Through everything that has transpired over the past fifteen years, we have always remained family - and Mama breeze was an integral part of that family.  We will be posting additional information here, as much as we can while still respecting her desire for privacy and anonymity.  For now, while we process our grief, we will close this notice with Godspeed, Mama.  We miss you so much already.

I don't see anything that is proposed that is worthy of outrage.  If someone is stupid enough to pay for something like gap without having done their due diligence, then that is on them.  Nobody twists their arm and forced it upon them. 

 

At what point is an individual going to actually be held responsible and accountable for their own fiscal missteps?  It seems that some, like Howard, want to keep a perpetual nanny state approach.  That benefits NOBODY, least of all the very victim class that people like him claim to want to 'protect.'

That has to be THE most moronic comment I have ever read on CB.

 

The issue, Einstein, isn't individual accountability, due diligence, intelligence, protected class or even the nanny state concept.  The MLA benefits YOU.

 

Let's ignore for a fact that you have young naive teenagers who aren't prepared to enter the world of high finance.  Let's ignore that the realities of military service place one in civilian situations that the average citizen is never placed in.  The issue is whether we want a "stupid" member of our armed forces focused on his job during a time of conflict or whether we want him to be too worried about his family's finances that his focus is impaired while trying to protect YOU -- not that an asshat like you is even worth of protecting.

 

To dumb it down for you: We go out of the way to make this "stupid" soldier from having to focus on extraneous crap and instead focus on killing the person trying to kill you.
