Is Everything Always For Sale?

By Scorpion Sting, published on May 7, 2013

Have you ever wondered that? Can you put a price on the things you own? Is there always someone who wants your things more than you? Are the things in your life for sale if the price is right even if you haven't thought of it being for sale in the first place? Does money really talk. Is money really the defining answer to all questions? I thought that I was a rare breed since I am usually the one who sees something someone else owns and try to purchase or trade something for it. Not everyone operates like this I understand, but it has been my way of doing business for quite sometime now. Recently... (more)

Dear Ely,

I’m drowning in bills. Every month they come in tsunami-sized waves: mortgage, car payment, phone, cable, electric, water, and credit cards. If I don’t find a way to spend less money, I’m going to have to get another job just to keep my head above water. Do you have any tips for saving money?

How to Invest Your Money

By Ely North, published on Feb 17, 2013

Dear Ely,

I work hard for my money, and I think it’s about damn time my money starts working for me. Right now it just sits in a bank account, earning hardly any interest. Lazy-ass money. I want to start investing it. The problem is, I know jack-shit about investing. Stocks, bonds, portfolios – I don’t even know what the hell those words mean. Make it easy for me. Tell me where to put my money so that it’ll make me even more money.

Sincerely,

Lester the Investor

Dear Lester the Investor,

11 Things Observed In The Betrayal Of My Friend

By D. Sager, published on Jan 7, 2013

...things. The friend will never have a bad thing to say to my face. I know that I am not perfect so if my friend is always eager to give praise and never criticism, it offers a cover for subterfuge. The friend will use my resources with abandon. Having no concern over the economy of my money and supplies they will waste and spend without thought. Strategic placement of needs. It seems the friend is always short on resources every time I'm around them. There are in “need” all the time and in short order they will let me know that “need”, subtly mentioning it and... (more)

Things Are Temporary

By Randy Mitchell, published on Jan 3, 2013

...I know now that the thrill and fun of doing that would only last so long; giving credit to the idea that the newness of material possessions always wears off.

Every time I see a Ferrari driving by, I think of that night. But, when I ask myself if I’d actually buy one if I had the money, the answer is always questionable. Fancy cars, homes, jewelry, whatever else you may crave may be fun for a while, but ask yourself sometime, what else could you do with money that would be more satisfying? What would provide a much greater sense of happiness and joy making you emotionally... (more)

My Tax Dollars...Your Burden

By DKIdea, published on Nov 12, 2012

...pay for my salary, so essentially, I‘m paying myself. I’m my own boss...but I already knew this. I get a kick out of people that brandish the fiery fist of power fueled by their tax dollars. In fact, I get a kick out of the very idea that they think they have any ownership at all over the money that is confiscated from them by our government. Yes...confiscated, because it is taken from you wether you want to give it or not.

Let me lay this out for you. You’re money is in your pocket, under your mattress or in your bank account. That money that was in your check before Uncle... (more)

Drug Detective? Well I see more than the police

By Jennifer Stone, published on Jul 2, 2012

I hit the streets today to find clues on the drug network. How it works, where to help and how to stop it at it's roots.

It had been a brisk day here in Sydney, out I went. The radio song I noted was she's all dressed up and knocking on your door. That was describing me, I was going out to knock on the doors where maybe the police hadn't been.

Well if they didn't know about it they don't look. They seem to be behind, the front line.

Out and about just walking around I was talking to the people on the ground. They would notice my scorpion. I was getting to be known... (more)

... last sighting of Juanita Nielsen a reporter for the NOW newspaper, an Heiress to the fortune yet today is a plague on the footpath acknowledgement of what was once.

By Jennifer Stone, published on May 1, 2012

...around Kings Cross and the people are buzzing yet the drugged affects are everywhere. Who is the King of the Drugs?

Putting a new business together today in Kings Cross and adjoining suburbs the self professed King of the Cross has been busy doing yet when you dig about the business the money behind is not that person, yet he rules the Golden Mile. The other people in the business deny this King of the Cross is in the business? Why deny? Why hide?

By Jennifer Stone, published on Apr 30, 2012

...

Allegedly 2009 Hells Angels USA were thinking to disowning Sydney Chapter of Hells Angels due to the links to criminal behaviour. This Criminal behaviour didn't stop, it just went underground.
