When we bought my wife's last Lincoln they offered to pay the first
month's payment if we financed. Naturally we financed - and wrote a
check for the balance just before our first payment was due.
 
And 0% interest is better than having to cash in investments. I don't
know how to bargain but our sons do.

> One thing I was shocked by is how many people apparently finance weekend fun/sports cars. You would think if someone is buying a little sporty car(that isnt going to be their primary car) they don't finance it....the dealership wanted to run my credit and I said "no"(since I'm buying a house and don't want to see that credit check on there and have to explain it hehe), and so they had to verify funds in acct and I had to sign someone that said I was planning to pay with funds in acct. But that was a strange concept to me- if you have to finance a weekend car, you probably shouldn't buy it....
 
To a lot of people it's all about lifestyle. They're paying for their
fun on the installment plan, along with everything else.

If it's a '68 or '69 with at least a 340 in it, it is a great car.

It's big. It probably is but I have not converted to metric.

Drinking alcohol suppresses the immune system (in my anecdotal experience). When I was 19 I had a cold for over a month because I drank nearly every night.

Maybe you went past the medicinal level? :) When I was drinking that
stuff we used to buy it by the half gallon.

I think liberals were allowed to remain because they can't do math (at
least not according the the deficit over the past 8 years).

You must admit that the math where lowering taxes while spending more reduces the federal debt is really tricky.

the problem I've heard with early decision is that i wonder if it reduces your scholarship/non-loan based financial aid you can get from that school.
 
I hate to see kids take out big loans(or have their parents pay 20k more per year or whatever) to go to their 'top' choice over another school. I see that all the time. After graduation it isn't likely to matter all that much....so if money is an issue(and for most of it is) at all, I'd think about this.
 
I don't have kids, but if I did have a kid I'd have trouble paying an extra 20k per year for them to go to an undergraduate school they like more than another perfectly good undergraduate school.

Our 3 and 4 grandsons applied to a slew of schools - and visited most
of them from Dallas to Duke. Most, not all, the schools offered
$50,000 scholarships. I'm not sure UTX offers more than acceptance in
the business school but room and board costs $50,000 per year. He
won't have debt when he graduates - but our son may now have to work
as long as I did.
 
I think an industrious, capable student can learn as much at Cow U. as
he can at Harvard - he just gets a lower starting job. What matters
more is what you can pay for. To me the best choice for college is to
like the school you can (almost) afford. Let her help with the
finances and planning.
 
And it's not a sin to work every other semester to help pay the way.
One young man from here has a free ride at Bama but worked 2 summers
for a marine biology company. He will be employed by them and they
will pay for his Masters and PhD while he works.

>Wait, I thot we had the best healthcare in the world EXCEPT for government, now you are saying our doctors and healthcare providers are not to be trusted and they only care about money. I'm so cornfused.
 
I can't speak for doctors but I'm sure there are mercenaries in every
profession.
 
We probably do have the best health care in the world. But, based on
what doctors tell me, they are reducing hours and becoming more
selective about patients over the last few years - not adding new ones
for example. And there are a slew of almost doctors lesser patients
are being sent to.
 
I think doctors exercise more caution since the courts allow frivilous
suits with large payouts and liability insurance is sky high (mia
probably agrees). If some Socialist Democrat wants to call that lack
of trust and greed it's his right. But he probably would not want his
doctor to know he said that.
 
I remember when most doctors took patients on a first come, first
serve basis except for emergencies. But that was back when almost
everyone deserved consideration.

Ok, I added that last bit, but isn't it sort of implied? And I challenge anyone to put a dollar value on diversity of thought and opinion. If you can't, it has no value!
