  • Wall Street Breakfast: Argentina Looks To Swap Debt For New Notes [View article]
    BO,

    There is going to be a real estate buying opportunity in Ferguson.

    No one is going to want a Ferguson address and prices will collapse.

    I will now be completely politically incorrect by using the stock phrase, "buy when there is blood in the streets". Sorry but violence, looting and fire bombing your community does not help your community.

    I agree with gggl, we can not tolerate robbing a convenience store and attacking a police office as being OK with a portion of our society.

    Overanalytical,

    I have bought a few over the years. I live in a deed state.

    Due diligence is the key. In Florida they are handled by each county and the rules change depending on what county you are buying in. it used to be that you could get double digit interest but those days are long gone.

    In Florida a tax lien does not come with any ownership rights. Many people think it gives you ownership after a certain number of year but it doesn't. It just pays you interest on your investment.

    If the taxes are never paid by the owner then you or one of the other lien holders will need to force a sale to get your money back. That's where it gets a little more complicated because of Homestead laws and the possibility that the property may not sell for the amount of taxes due. You also may end up owning a piece of swamp land that you will then have to pay taxes on. ;)

    Sprint has launched family share plans? I thought they already had it with their Framily promotion?

    Which by the way IMOA I absolutely hate those commercials. A talking gerbil that is the head of a dysfunctional family? Really?

  • Why Millennials Should Try Their Luck In Mexico [View article]
    I have a friend that would drive down into Mexico to visit his family once or twice a year. After each visit he became more concerned with his safety and the increasing violence. On his last visit he was robbed by the police who stole his pass port, all ID and money. He then spent a week in a Mexican jail trying to contact the American embassy.

    Another friend moved to Mexico and retired in a "secure" gated development several years ago. She just moved back to Florida because of the violence and corruption. She was threatened with murder over a repair bill.

    If you choose to go to countries like Mexico, North Korea, Iraq, Libya, etc fine but don't ask the US government to help when you get thrown in jail or kidnapped.

    Trev,

    Wild seals are often maimed by Killer Whales who then play with them and toss them in the air prior to devouring them whole and sometimes still alive.

    Gene,

    I respect your right to spend your money on what ever you want. I live in central Florida and have never been to Sea World, I don't really like theme parks, they are just to crowded.

    I think it's important that we keep things in perspective and realize that the animals at Sea World are treated much better than the animals that we consume for food.

    Deercreek,

    They will not stop with Sea World.

    Their goal is to ban all zoo's, all hunting and all meat production. This is a classic Cass Sunstein "Nudge Push Shove" technique.

    There is a US Marine being held in prison in Mexico for over 3 months because he made a wrong turn!

    The police are as corrupt as the drug cartels. Many of the prisons are actually controlled by the drug cartels.

    The Mexican government facilitates the invasion of illegal immigrants into this country and the drugs that they bring with them!

    Anyone who goes to Mexico without squad of armed guards is a fool!

    Deercreek,

    The animals in the wild don't have a particularly great life. Between trying to survive predators, a hostile environment and hunting for food it's a pretty brutal existence.

    "I am not a fan of caging animals or keeping them in tanks"

    I might suggest that you look into where your chicken, pork, beef and fish comes from.

    Sea World is another victim of blacklisting or boycotting.

    It used to be the consumer who decided if they approved of a companies products through purchasing their products or services. Now it's small groups or wealthy individuals who organize and finance these attacks.

    It's a dangerous trend that is used by all political agendas. Gay rights, gun rights, religious rights, environmentalists.

    We already have a divided country politically and it looks like we are headed towards a divided economy too. Restaurants, banks, clothing stores, etc that cater to only one political view. They may start segregating into two different areas of a community.

    There is already an App for your phone that you can use to find out a companies political views before making a purchase.
