Worst Year in Politics? Check out These Crazy U.S. Elections

Worst Year in Politics? Check out These Crazy U.S. Elections
Had enough of politics yet? Think this is the most divisive election in U.S. history? It certainly seems like it doesn’t it? Mudslinging, accusations, attack ads, and what seems like two major candidates that nobody likes.Election of 1860Pardon us for pointing out the obvious, but we think the election of 1860 was probably worse. That was the year Abraham Lincoln was elected president. Now, don’t get us wrong, we think it was a very good thing that the man who would go on to become t...

LABOR DAY IS ON ITS WAY

LABOR DAY IS ON ITS WAY
Labor Day is on its way. The first Monday in September always marks the unofficial last holiday of summer, and for many, a return to school. Labor Day is an occasion in which the United States observes those who work blue collar type jobs; from food servers (most of whom – ironically – will be working that day), to factory workers (of which there are precious few left in this country…also ironically). As the unofficial end of summer, Labor Day was originally an unofficial...

HISTORY OF THE LAS VEGAS SKIM
If you’ve seen the various movies about Las Vegas, most of them deal with the history of the town and the events that have peppered its colorful history. Some are just fantasy stories (Ocean’s 11) and some are biographies about important figures in Vegas’ history (Bugsy). One in particular is a mix of fact and fiction called “Casino” (warning: not for the kids) that is an embellished recounting of Vegas’ history of involvement with the mafia.Every wonder why y...

THERE’S A NEW NIGERIAN EMAIL SCAM
OK well, this one has us shaking our heads. We’ve written once or twice about the infamous ‘Nigerian Prince’ E-Mail scam. To recap, this is a scam where the recipient of an e-mail is informed that a prince in an African Country has fallen out of favor with the royal family and needs your help to get to America. Once he arrives on our shores, he will transfer his wealth to American bank accounts and give some of it to you. It’s actually a scam that goes back more than a hu...

WHAT HAPPENS TO A TITLE LOAN IF A CAR IS TOTALED?

WHAT HAPPENS TO A TITLE LOAN IF A CAR IS TOTALED?
It’s one of those things we never like to think about; an auto accident. In fact, apart from safe driving practices, and making sure you obey all laws of the road, it’s probably better not to think about being in a car accident at all, since the vast majority of bad drivers don’t actually experience one on a day to day basis. Annually, less than one percent of American drivers are involved in a fatal car accident, and when you factor in non-injury accidents, that number stays b...
