When was the last time you applied for a mortgage? Why do you feel those with less established credit should not have access to home ownership? Because that is what happened with Dodd-Frank - it severely limited options for home loans to only the major players, you know, the same evil big banks you...Jump to post
As you stated, for $500 that is a perfectly acceptable flight, heck for $1000 it is, but yes, like so many airlines, the hardware is good, but the soft stuff just isn't there yet. There will come a point where these new far east carriers will get it all figured out, then things will get interesting ...Jump to post
BA must have a disadvantage vs competitors if their planes are using 20% for fuel for most flights. Look at the number of paid J seats they have on those flights compared to say DY and their number of paid W seats, then compare costs V revenue. BA's costs may be higher, but their revenue is multipl...Jump to post
Trumps approval rating is above 60%. Are you bloody daft? You cannot poll just the GOP voters and claim that's his approval rating.... with a straight face. His actual approval rating is 40.0% and his disapproval rating is 53.7%. Latest has him around 36%, it won't go much lower than that as that i...Jump to post

I wouldn't trust a Chinese-made car. Probably steel is of lower quality to start with. It is known that the same models made in Argentina or Brazil compared to the same car manufactured in Europe is of lower structural standards.

Well - Europe has even political parties fighting for age of consent like 12. Movement to that has to start somewhere. Before we go to far, it should also be realized that each week in the US 475 underage females marry adult males, really sickening IMHO and something that both major political parti...Jump to post
I wonder if there was a mass shooting where a bunch of babies (under 3 years old) were killed if the GOP would finally, just maybe, at the very least be slightly open to the idea of gun control measures.* They're pro-life right? Oh wait, that's only until they're actually born. Can't wait for the d...Jump to post

It's hard to do vegas in just a few days and get the whole experience. I've been a handful of times and still haven't even done hoover dam yet. I know you're looking for natural scenic stuff but you need to also experience fremont street at night. Fremont is more enjoyable than the strip at night. ...Jump to post

You can check the hotel cameras with enough footage reference points to figure out exactly how many minutes the date stamp is off.

In light of the mass shooting in Las Vegas will we likely see high-rise hotels in Vegas banning high-powered rifles and automatics?
