Apr 26th 2011 3:58PM If I were a woman and spent that much for something so ridiculous I'd be afraid of going to Hell for being so selfish. When that money could have gone to feeding hungry children, etc...
Same goes for the designers who peddle this crap. Make something for $20 cost of materials then sell it to some fool for thousands of dollars??!! Why not take some of those obscene profits and give 90% of it to charity and do the world some good, instead of build another beach house in the Hamptons.

Nov 5th 2009 1:01PM True, it still may be price gouging. But do you seriously think someone who's buying a BMW will quibble over a couple hundred bucks? Not to mention the price of all BMWs is much higher than it needs to be. Beemers are good quality automobiles, but not that much better to justify the cost. But BMW can get that price as long as people keep ponying up the big bucks to maintain their image of being wealthy (whether or not they actually are LOL).
Nov 5th 2009 12:40PM Obviously you've never subscribed to satellite radio. If you had, you would have a different opinion of it and most likely you wouldn't be able to live without it. But nonetheless, myself and over 18 million satellite radio subscribers would beg to differ with your opinion.
Nov 5th 2009 12:42AM I'm a conservative republican but people like you give us a bad name. Not ALL people who are broke are losers. All it takes is to be working one day earning 6 figures, then get the dreaded pink slip. Your 6 figure expenses are still there even though you no longer have any income. Just be thankful if you are gainfully employed. Most people, regardless of current income are just a short distance from living in a cardboard box under a bridge somewhere. All it takes is to become disabled, lose your job, etc., etc. And if you're 50 years old or older, you can forget about replacing your old job of 6 figures if you lose it. At 50 or 50+, employers see you as a temp at best ... with your most productive years already gone, so of little value to them. They would rather invest their resources in some young whipper snapper with a lot of spring still left in their step.
Oct 6th 2009 11:20PM People complain about the fees but almost all airlines fly people for less than what it actually cost them. That's why very few airlines are profitable. Why is it that banks and insurance companies can be profitable but heaven forbid an airline ever make a dime? I say charge everyone the same. $2000 a round trip ticket or whatever it really costs the airlines to fly a passenger. I can't believe that people bitch if they have to pay more than $300 for a roundtrip ticket of 3000 total miles or more. Try driving a car for 10 cents a mile. It can't be done when you factor in fuel, wear and tear on the tires, brakes, engine, etc., etc.. And not to mention your time wasted behind the wheel. Isn't your time worth something to you? My time is worth $60/hr to me so if I can save 5 hours by flying vs driving that's the same as instantly deducting $300 from the total cost of the trip.
Jun 4th 2009 3:31AM Big banks like Discover, Chase, Citi, etc., suck. For proof of who the biggest rip-offs are, just go into any big city and look at the tallest skyscrapers. Most of them are banks, and those that aren’t banks are insurance companies (another pet peeve of mine). Those huge monuments are built with “your” money folks.
They can rape and pillage the consumer, and/or mismanage their businesses … yet, when they falter Uncle Sam via “your” tax dollars is there to bail their sorry arses out. But unfortunately, us small fry (peons) don’t garner that same type of respect.
All we can do is to boycott them as much as possible. Pull money out of bank accounts and keep it under your mattress or buried somewhere. Why give it to them at 1 ½ % when they loan it back to you at 10 to 20 times that? They add extra floors to their skyscrapers on the spread. Buy only homes, college education, and maybe new cars on credit.
Convert “whole life” insurance policies to “term life” policies, and “invest” elsewhere. Cancel full coverage auto insurance policies (unless you’re forced to carry it by a lender) and replace it with liability only coverage. Buy auto, home and health insurance policies with the highest deductibles that your insurance company offers (lowest premiums). Keep a credit card on hand for the sole purpose of paying major insurance claim deductibles in the relatively rare event they happen.
Never purchase extended warranties on electronics and appliances. Retailers are eager to shove them down your throat because the insurance company pays them a commission equal to a nice chunk of the premium. It’s the most overpriced insurance that a consumer can buy.
Cash saved over a lifetime by not overspending on insurance will allow a person to pay in full most calamities that arise … and still have money left over. Think about it, there’d be no such thing as insurance companies if they knew the odds were stacked against them and in favor of us. They prey on our fear. We all fear major catastrophes, but the majority of us will never be involved in one. If we all were, all insurance companies would be broke, and that's not the case.
