    "Obamacare" had one true purpose, and that was to instigate a nationwide call for "Single Payer Healthcare", which is actually worse than what we are dealing with now over the long run as the Government will have total and unencumbered control over any and all aspects of Health Care in this country.

    The powers that be cannot disclose their true goal and while the path to the end game is painful to most involved, the true end game will result in truly despicable and deplorable conditions concerning "health care" that will be unbelievably "destitute" (as far as health care is concerned), for the overwhelming majority of Americans and our country will not recover from such devastation for several generations from this atrocity, IMO.

    Low Information Voters giving the power to those who are bound and determined to destroy basic prosperity's in this country are just as culpable as the low life "politicians" who pander to those who vote for yet more "freebies".

    More and more, I am convinced that another Civil War must take place in this country in order to set things right for the long run if this country is going to survive such absurdities.

    I've read of several Islamic terrorist acts in China over the last several years, but they are taking an approach, to this point, that is relentless and brutal.

    I'm no fan of Communist China by any means, but I cannot fault their approach at combating the “insurgents” so far. They have little choice, and it falls in line with their overall strategy when dealing with dissidents that they deem “undesirable”, so this is neither shocking nor unexpected considering the tactics they employ in such “circumstances”, and although it may be effective in their totalitarian society, it would likely never be tolerated nor considered as an effective tactic in “Western Society”, nor even considered given our appeasing mindset.

    I'm not stating that their way is “better’ or even more “effective”, but “Western society” does not allow such tactics to be employed for “self-destructive” reasons.

    I've had my CC replaced recently due to the multiple large scale CC information breaches, and I've never had any real issue with scams as I was contacted by the bank the few times my account was determined to be vulnerable to suspicious transactions.

    That being said, I only use a true CC for online purchases, and refuse to use my Debit card for any online transaction in order to safeguard my checking account. I also use my debit card as a CC in most circumstances in order to keep my checking account as secure as reasonably possible.

    Over the last several years this card has been my only CC I've used, and it is currently under %8 APR, variable, but with interest rates so low it was better than my fixed rate %10 card that finally ended up getting canceled due to inactivity.

    I will eventually regret that when interest rates finally climb again, but I will have to simply make sure to keep no revolving balance on the card I use and scout around for another low fixed interest rate card to use in times that I need to carry a short term balance.

    Many years ago I had over $15K of CC debt and was wasting enormous sums of cash monthly to service that debt, but I finally wised up and payed it off as fast as I could manage and learned the hard way how to manage my finances in the best manner for personal prosperity in the modern age.

    My bank probably isn't fond of my fiscal prudence, but they have millions of other customers who more than make up for the lack of steady income they no longer receive from my account.

    I use my BOA CC in the exact same manner, and pay it off every month after using it for bills and such.

    On occasion, such as December when I decided to take an expensive vacation to Florida to treat my youngest Daughter and Son in law along with my Grandchildren to a rather costly Christmas trip to Disney World, I did not pay it all off at the normal monthly payment but let it roll over for 2 months and payed it off in installments along with a nominal interest fee (final payoff is next weekend per my schedule).

    If you can manage your finances within reason, having this convenience is very useful, IMO.

    We’re updating our credit card systems so we can better serve you. You can continue to use your credit card, and your payments and transactions, including recurring charges, will continue processing. You can view your credit card balance, but it may not be current at times. In addition, some credit card services are currently not accessible.

Although the tri-states were destroyed, I do appreciate what Badger did to the POTUS.

    Due to the “type” of sport we’re dealing with here, a “prolonged” playoff is neither warranted nor practical, IMO. This format is likely the best available due to the “extreme” nature of the “sport” and the “extreme” nature of the violent contact involved.

    Consider that reality before demanding an imposition of even more match ups to decide a “true” national champion.

    If I'm not mistaken, the TCU and Baylor “strength of schedule” ratings, or whatever it is called, were lower than that of OSU, and if that is true, then there is really a very weak argument being presented in this post, IMO.

    I have a biased opinion as I am a lifelong Buckeye fan as I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, so my opinion may not be useful, but I am of the opinion that TCU would have met the same fate as Oregon when faced with a Championship match up versus OSU. TCU did not have a defense that could have stopped the Buckeyes, same as Oregon.

I did not expect that with the loss of their two primary QB’s that they would have any hope to win any of their “postseason” matches, but I am guilty of underestimating their talent and more importantly, their desire.

    Watching the matchup I was “hoping” for tonight, and although I am unfortunately of the opinion that Alabama will prevail, I still am of the belief that OSU matches up well against any SEC team, and I would be much more optimistic if OSU had their first or even second string QB, and that they had an OC that had some balls along with a DC that had some smarts, I don't want to detract from the obvious fact that Alabama is an outstanding team that has gotten to this point in the season with a well deserved group of talented individuals along with an exceptional coaching staff.

    The game is a good one so far, and although I doubt my team will have a chance to prevail, I am proud of the fact that despite all of the negatives surrounding their program due to injuries and coaching weakness, I still am of the belief that they match up well with any SEC team, regardless of the outcome of this game.
