  • Tax Refunds, Easy Credit Boost Used Car Prices

    The Truth About Cars ^ | 3/10/2014 | Cameron Miquelon
    A combination of income tax refunds issued in January and February with accessible financing have boosted used-car prices overall in the first two months of 2014. Automotive News reports prices rose 1.1 percent year to date, and 0.8 percent over the past month, according to the Manheim Used Vehicle Value Index. Meanwhile, the IRS processed 40.4 million returns in the first two months of the year, refunding $125.8 billion to taxpayers at an average of $3,112, which helped in propping up wholesale used vehicle prices. Easy credit with attractive terms also aided used-vehicle pricing, making the market more profitable than...

    'As soon as the pirates get a blast of Britney, they move on as quickly as they can,' says merchant naval officerIn an excellent case of "here's a sentence you won't read every day", Britney Spears has emerged as an unlikely figurehead in the fight against Somali pirates. According to reports, Britney's hits, including Oops! I Did It Again and Baby One More Time, are being employed by British naval officers in an attempt to scare off pirates along the east coast of Africa. Perhaps nothing else not guns, not harpoons is quite as intimidating as the sound...

  • Specter says Obama ditched him after he voted to pass health law

    Former Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.) writes in a new book that President Obama ditched him in the 2010 election after he helped Obama win the biggest legislative victory of his term by passing healthcare reform. Specter also claims that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) did not uphold his promise to grant him seniority accrued over 28 years of service in the Senate as a Republican. Specter, who rocked Washingtons political establishment and made headlines around the country when he left the Republican Party to join Democrats in April of 2009, has kept quiet about these slights until now. He...

    Townhall ^ | 6/1/11 | Kyle Olson
    Now we know why unionists were fighting so hard for a federal card check law. Organizers can unionize private and public employees, forcing them to pay hundreds in union dues, before they even know anything about it. That's the situation at the Cape Cod Lighthouse Charter School in Orleans, Massachusetts. Last week news broke that the reputable charter school was the second in Massachusetts to be organized by the American Federation of Teachers. (Snip) Several teachers complained that they were never informed about the process and were never asked to vote on the issue.

    american thinker ^ | 5/27/11 | Rick Moran
    President Obama has used recess appointments in the past to get controversial nominees into the positions he chose for them. So the Republicans employed a little used legislative gambit to block the president's expected recess appointment of Elizabeth Warren to head up the new Consumer Finance Protection Board. The Hill: GOP opposition is preventing the Senate from completely adjourning for the Memorial Day recess. Instead, the chamber will come in for three pro-forma sessions over the next 10 days. The cursory sessions are a formality that will ensure President Obama does not make recess appointments, a prospect that was considered...

    Berlin - Chancellor Angela Merkel said Germans had for too long failed to grasp how immigration was changing their country and would have to get used to the sight of more mosques in their cities, according to a newspaper. (Snip) "Our country is going to carry on changing, and integration is also a task for the society taking up the immigrants," Merkel told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung daily. "For years we've been deceiving ourselves about this. Mosques, for example, are going to be a more prominent part of our cities than they were before," she added.

    BELLEVUE, Wash., Officials with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife said they are using day-old Krispy Kreme doughnuts as bait to lure a bear in Bellevue. Jason Capelli, a game warden with the department, said the 1 1/2-year-old bear, estimated to weigh 70 to 80 pounds, has been spotted digging through garbage and birdfeeders in a Bellevue neighborhood and Krispy Kreme donated day-old doughnuts to use as bait, The Seattle Times reported Friday.

    In the process of searching for a used car for my children to use to go to school and get to work (summer jobs), I have made a couple of significant discoveries. Many used cars are selling for way below book value because there is no book value due to the incentives for buying new cars and economic conditions. Few banks will give loans on a used car at this time. Many, many used cars are for sale and remain for sale for quite some time. Cars that should have elevated used values are selling for well below "usual" values....

    Selling damaged vehicles. Breaking rules. Calling cops on customers who complain. A Tucson car lot managed by ex-convicts did all those things and now is under state investigation for unlawful business practices. Regulators are probing reports that the dealership sold a wrecked vehicle that was legally unfit to drive, and that staffers repeatedly put inaccurate vehicle information on state records, violating Arizona law. Wildcat Mitsubishi, 5200 E. Speedway, has been under state scrutiny since the Army banned local soldiers from buying cars there and at Wildcat's sister dealership, Ideal Automotive Group, 645 S. Highway 92 in Sierra Vista. The May...

    US attacks used 'common anthrax' At least five people died in anthrax attacks in 2001 Investigators believe anthrax used in a series of attacks in the US in 2001 was not of military grade as originally thought, a US newspaper reports. The Washington Post paper says the FBI has widened its investigation into the source of the anthrax after finding it was of a more common variety. "There is no significant signature in the powder that points to a domestic source," an expert told the paper. Anthrax powder, sent by mail, killed five people in the US in October 2001....

    UK airport used to fly bombs to Israel By Thomas Harding Defence Correspondent and Anil Dawar (Filed: 26/07/2006) Britain has been used as a staging post for major shipments of bunker-busting bombs from America to Israel. The Israelis want the 5,000lb smart bombs to attack the bunkers being used by Hizbollah leaders in Lebanon. Two chartered Airbus A310 cargo planes filled with GBU 28 laser-guided bombs landed at Prestwick airport, near Glasgow, for refuelling and crew rests after flying across the Atlantic at the weekend, defence sources confirmed. The airport has also been used by the CIA for rendition flights...

    Court Denies Felons Voting Rights ArgumentBy LARRY NEUMEISTER, Associated Press Writer Last update: May 05, 2006 2:23 AM NEW YORK (AP) - A landmark civil rights law cannot be used to argue that barring felons from voting discriminates against minorities because they are imprisoned at a higher rate, a federal court ruled Thursday. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decided the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which removed barriers to black voters, was not an avenue of relief for 21 plaintiffs, which include six current prisoners. The plaintiffs sued the state in November 2000. Judge Jose A. Cabranes, who...
