We just refinanced our house again. During the process… side note: A BIG (sarcasm) THANK YOU (more sarcasm) to our friends (you get it by now) in Congress. If you have not gotten a home loan it is much more complicated and a bigger pain. I still don’t understand why we all need a Big Brother telling us what to do. If I want food that tastes good but is bad for me I should be able to have it. If some idiot wants to lend money to another idiot they should be able to. Let’s just have full disclosure and transparency like Obama’s Administration. Oh, wait, that didn’t happen:) So much for that Change:) On another short rant… THANK YOU for also requiring us to buy more expensive light bulbs that don’t fit and have mercury in them. Lastly, THANK YOU for jacking up corn prices so my small engines (lawn mower, blower, weed eater, etc…) can burn up faster thanks to ethanol.
Back on point. I realized that we were… well, to not be to colorful in my description, we were paying WAY too much for insurance. Insurance is one of those necessary evils. I would never go without it but I don’t like it. All I ask is that I not get the shortest straw. It turns out we somehow managed to get the most expensive policy in town when we moved here. Even the agent seems to know it. When I called to give them a fair shake on keeping our business they just said “I’ll email you a new quote.” Oh well, at least I am the best at something.
Upon calling around I was surprised by the range in cost. We might end up saving close to $1000.00 a year! Which is good because the Triplets start Kindergarten in August and they are enrolled in a private Christian school. Did I mention that I don’t work:) I will do my best to resist buying a new gun or gadget with the “savings”.
Anarchism is founded on the observation that since few men are wise enough to rule themselves, even fewer are wise enough to rule others.
Americans have an abiding belief in their ability to control reality by purely material means… airline insurance replaces the fear of death with the comforting prospect of cash.
