Point of View

Penny Pinchers

UNITED STATES—Money, oh money, it’s something we all strive for.  Some of us are much better at saving money than other people, but is it ever okay to be a penny pincher?  I guess it depends on who you’re talking to.  Some people frown upon those who try to conserve their income compared to those who may spend frivolously. ...

Protecting The Wildlife

UNITED STATES—Have you ever watched Animal Planet?  Most of us haven’t, but for those that have you’ll be surprised at the things that you learn. Just the other day, I stopped on Animal Planet and found myself thoroughly engrossed in a documentary that I was watching about the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.  It was quite fascinating to say...

Skyrocketing Insurance Costs

UNITED STATES—There is an epidemic taking place inAmericaright now.  The cost of insurance is unbearable.  Now just what type of insurance am I referring to? I’m referring to all forms of insurance: car, house, health, life, earthquake, etc.  There is a type of insurance for almost anything that has monetary value. The problem I have with insurance rates is the...

Stupid Decisions

UNITED STATES—No one in the world is perfect, but there are ways to prevent yourself from making stupid decisions that will impact your life forever.  I’m not just speaking from personal experience, but the fact that you surround yourself by those who make poor decisions will influence you more.  Something that so many people consider petty, but it’s a...

Lies, Lies And More Lies

UNITED STATES—We all do it.  Some of us more than others, but who hasn’t told a lie, I know I have. Perhaps a better question is why do we lie to begin with?  Its simple we want to divert the truth.  Hence, the key word divert.  When we lie, for most of us, we want to prevent the truth...

Government Intervention

UNITED STATES—I have a problem with the government.  It seems everyday that our nations politicians are doing everything in their power to control what other people are doing on a daily basis.  You were not elected into office to decide necessary “what you think is best for those you represent” you were elected into office to “do what we...

Taxes Vs. Refunds

UNITED STATES—If you’re like any American citizen who works 1 of 2 things is happening for you right now.  Either you’re in the midst of anticipating that huge refund check or you’re in the midst of having to pay Uncle Sam a hefty tax.  Either way the tax season brings many hassles with it.  For those who are self-employed...

Disrespectful Children

UNITED STATES—I do remember the good ole days. Where adults were seen as authority figures to younger generations and they expected their elders.  Unfortunately, those days are far behind us.  It’s alarming to hear so many teens and young adults are disrespectful to adults and the elderly with the usage of expletives or bad language in front of their...
