The Rant for April 20th, 2009


Baseball carries me until college football starts and the Indians look like they've returned to 80's form.  Although a 22-4 win against the Yanks in their Billion-dollar stadium was quite nice.

I seen a great post about University of Tennessee football today, after their spring game.  Basically, it said "If we could get Eric Berry to snap the ball to Eric Berry, and he could hand off or throw to Eric Berry, with Eric Berry blocking for him, then we'll have agreat year."  That's short form and not word for word, but it made me laugh on this Monday.


Miss California gets screwed out of the Miss USA pageant because she doesn't believe in gay marriage.  WTH?  Most Americans don't, but when a gay judge asks the question, there's only one correct answer?  She's a major hottie, too.  This whole PC thing is out of control.  What ever happened to standing up for what you believe is right?  Miss North Carolina is pretty darn fine as well.


I agree, Susan Boyle is an amazing singer.  If you haven't heard this woman sing you should.  Living proof of the old addage "Don't judge a book by it's cover."


So this cop in PA gets drunk in a bar, gets loud and annoying and starts talking about this drug dealer he finds dead with a bullet between his eyes.  Some jerk in the bar records it on his phone and posts it on UTOOB, now he's suspended.  Yeah, the cop's a jerk, but the guy was a drug dealer.  No need for him to lose his job for it.  That's PC working for us again!

Advice from the Oney-wan Kinobi

Save a buck.  If you have a mortgage, don't carry any more insurance on your house than what you owe, that's all you're obligated for.  If your house burns down, or gets blown away in a tornado, they're going to write the check with your name and the bank's name as well.   It's a risk, but what are the chances?  They suck you in by playing on your fears.  The insurance companies also like to take the liberty of increasing the value of your policy every year without your consent.  I dropped mine down, and saved over $200 for this year.  Go check your policy every year!

Speaking of mortgages, don't do escrow unless your bad at budgeting.  The bank will keep two months 'cushion' in this account for the life of your loan.  In my case, that's around $300.  For fifteen years!  No interest is earned on that cushion, it's just an interest free loan to the bank.  And in most states, you can't cancel the escrow account.  Learn from my mistakes.
