Nov 23rd 2010 11:38AM First of all Todd, the Mint and the Federal Reserve are two entirely different organizations. The US Mint is owned by the Federal government and is under the control of Congress. Second, "A nickle has no nickle (the word is spelled NICKEL) in it any more" - BS. The 2010 5c coin is 75% copper, 25% nickel - the same alloy the Mint has used for over 100 years.
Oct 19th 2010 3:01PM You could save even more by living under a bridge and eating out of dumpsters. The point of the article is to stop mindlessly spending money on things that don't add to your life, not to stop having a life.
Oct 11th 2010 1:58PM You seriously need to get a life. The "small minds" you're talking about, for the most part, wouldn't recognize the Old Spice commercials or make the connection with them. Find yourself a worthwhile protest, like a war or somehing.
Sep 29th 2010 10:17AM Tom, go back and read your first paragraph ( the "Sin no more" part).
This person's past should not automatically disqualify her for a teaching position. Her choice to publicly advocate for prostitution as an acceptable career choice does. Read the related articles and you'll find that is exactly what she is doing.

Aug 10th 2010 5:06PM The one guaranteed way to win the lottery? DON"T BUY LOTTERY TICKETS.
State-sponsored lotteries (like the "NC Education Lottery") generally pay out less than 70% of the total lottery ticket sales in prizes. The other 30+% goes to "education". The prizes are also taxable, so the fed and state take back about half of the total "winnings" in taxes. Overall, $100 dollar spent on lottery tickets = $65+ to government, $35 or less returned to the ticket-buying public. The neighborhood bookie gives better odds.
Publisher's Clearinghouse, charity drawings, etc. are a different matter. You either spend nothing (Clearinghouse), or give money to a cause you support.
Jul 13th 2010 1:07PM You're as disgusting as Vincent Jackson. THis is NOT a racial issue; Ben Rothlisberger (white guy last time I checked) is even less of a role model than Jackson. There are lots of respectable and responsible players of all colors in both the NFL and NBA. They just don't get the headlines that the bad apples do.
Jul 13th 2010 10:06AM They're both right.
Jun 10th 2010 10:47AM Another lame attempt at Tebow bashing. The story is about violations at USC. Get a life.
May 14th 2010 1:24PM My wife and I are flying nonstop Charlotte to Hawaii next week on USAir frequent flyer tickets. I have acumulated miles in my USAir account for over 20 years, never had any miles "expire" like with any other FF program. I also have Delta, Northwest, and United cards but they expire before I can accumulate enough miles to cover a decent trip. I had no difficulty booking these tickets on line - wide choice of dates, both ways. THe comment about "50,000 miles for a domestic round trip ticket" - there are options - avoid peak travel days and teh same ticket is 25,000 miles. My Honolulu tickets were 40,000 miles each round trip.
