Credit scores are made up of a complex algorithm that can, at times, seem inexplicable. Often things that seem financially responsible can in fact lower your credit score. Answer the few questions below to test your credit IQ — the answers may surprise you.
“If corporations are people too, and should have religious rights, how come the Bible has never spoke of a corporation making it to heaven in the form of a holy spirit. It’s an insult to all those who believe and makes their prayers seem cheap.”
Every Sunday morning we showcase a classic comic cover, complete with compelling commentary, for your cordial contemplation. It’s the Classic Comic Cover Corner!
Nearly a year ago, I hosted the first Downtown Development Summit at the Mesa Arts Center. We invited developers and financiers from Arizona and around the country to come see what downtown Mesa had to offer. We highlighted development opportunities and showcased available properties through downtown and along the light rail corridor.
“Biden, Kerry and Obama had it right in 2006. It would be foolish to invoke the nuclear option in the Senate. I guess Obama’s greed for power has overtaken his intelligence. That’s okay, everyone now should know his true goal is to be king, not president. History will remove the upper case and remember him as ‘president.’”
It’s been a great year for the Chandler business community, and for our city as a whole.
“Reid and Obama just guaranteed another shut down by invoking the nuclear option. Only this one may be longer and nastier than any in history. Hold on to your hats, the man that claimed he would unite America has driven a stake in any hope of that goal.”
“People were complaining when they answered their phones because ‘Harry Mitchell’ popped up on the caller ID and it was Schweikert’s office. They were blaming Schweikert but they can really only blame their own stupidity. It popped up because they still have the name loaded in their phones under Harry Mitchell’s name. Delete the number from your phone and it will be fixed. Typical of Democrats, no personal responsibility.”
I had the conversation in my aunt’s car on a South Dakota road. I’m talking about starting that conversation about your family’s heart history.
In 2006, I came up against a holiday deadline crunch, so I turned my column over to Turpy, the beloved 8-year-old golden retriever/chow mix who had turned up at our doorstep as a puppy.
Does anyone even care that 6,000 cases of reported neglect and abuse went un-investigated by Child Protective Services Special Welfare Assessment Team at the Arizona Department of Economic Security?
“Rod is up to his old tricks, only telling half the story. But he admitted he didn’t know anything about the fair tax so he looked it up. No doubt on one of his extreme left leaning websites. (Hey, like the commercial says ‘it’s on the internet so it has to be true’). One of the many ‘small’ details he fails to mention is you would not pay payroll, or federal income taxes anymore. For the first time you would keep what you earn. There are many other benefits and everyone would pay their fair share. ... But wait ... where have I heard that before?”
“I wonder just how thick the lefts rose colored glasses have to be before they can finally see just how deceitful this administration is?”
“I was glad to see Dems in the Senate use the nuclear option. Republicans had used obstruction tactics to the point it had evolved into torment of American people.”
Eddie Basha loved St. Vincent de Paul, and he especially loved Turkey Tuesday.
Maybe it’s the relaxed attitude or the wide-open spaces. Whatever the cause, Westerners are the most likely people in the country to enjoy their neighbors (72 percent in the West, compared to 67 percent nationally) — despite being the worst about knowing their names.
Half a century ago, Sid Davis was the first journalist to learn John Kennedy had died. Instead of breaking the biggest the biggest news story in the world, he waited because he wanted to make sure he was right. It is hard to image a journalist making the same choice nowadays amid our modern cacophony of inaccurate reporting, but perhaps Davis has something to teach us.
“Why do some people think that human rights and civil rights are the same thing? Everyone has human rights, just by being human. Civil rights are the rights of a person who has legal citizenship to a specific country. If you are not a citizen, then you do not have the privileges of these civil rights. Civil rights activists should be backing the rights of citizens not the illegal immigrants, who have only human rights.”
“The unfortunate thing about the Tea Party is not their constant attacks on the anything that the President may propose; it is their desire to bring down the federal government. This is a betrayal of not only the voters who elected them but the whole country. It is also a betrayal of their oath to defend the Constitution. These people don’t about how much suffering they may cause; the important thing is they accomplish their goal.”
I am always dismayed by articles such as Mike McClellan’s commentary on public prayer.
“Another reason for low health care sign-up numbers: We’re a nation of procrastinators. How many of us turn in anything early? We are a country that sees a deadline and thinks: I bet I can turn it in a little late.”
Advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (English translation: amnesty) like to point out that immigrants in the past have flocked to America and made important contributions to our nation. That’s true, but the America of 1913 was different from 2013 in ways that greatly affect the probability that immigrants will become contributing citizens.
If you were born anywhere from 1982 to 2001, or within a few years of this range, you are considered a “Millennial.” As a member of this group, you share many things — cultural references, familiarity with technology, attitudes toward work and family — with others your age. And if you’re one of the “older” Millennials, you and your peers have something else in common — specifically, you have a good opportunity to launch investment strategies to help you save for the future.
“I believe I write and speak for all veterans when I send a big ‘thank you’ to all of the restaurateurs who served free meals to veterans on Monday. I know, that at the place my wife and I dined, we received the finest of service. Again, thanks a lot, really appreciated your service.”
Sheesh, what did they expect?
