  • The Money Conversation
    I would have to say a Pet Rock(yes I am dating myself)
  • Dumbest Purchase
    Tix to see Glee- they lip synced!
  • Dumbest Purchase
    My dumbest purchase is the $50 I spend on a yearly basis to enter a fantasy football league with a group of men that know WAY more about football than I do. I think what is more perplexing is that I continue to participate year after year....
  • dumbest purchase
    lottery tickets
  • Alohhhhhhhhhhhhhh-HA!
    The "pineapple train" on the island of Maui that went around pineapple plants (and other Hawaiian flora) that were planted in the "infield" of an oval track that the train went on. Lots of ukelele music and silly Hawaiian "lore", for about $30 each person.
  • dumbest purchase
    A gym membership that I used approximately 3 times in one entire year. Definitely a waste of money!
  • dumbest purchase
    parachute pants
  • A Treadmill
    In theory, it sounded like a good idea at the time, but if you just use it for throwing your clothes on at the end of the day..... well, let's just say my kids enjoy it now.
  • Conseco Stock
    It was at $0.04/share when I bought it, went up to $0.06/share before being completely delisted and devalued to ZERO.
  • Dumbest
    Blockbuster account/rentals.
  • dumbest
    Gotta have clothes/shoes my teenager wanted and never wore!
  • Dumbest purchase
    There was this bowl I saw one night on qvc (couldnt sleep). It's a big plastic bowl with hollowed sections between the inner and outer surfaces. You are supposed to put stuff in the sections like green m&ms for St. Patricks party or black and orange for Halloween party

  • Custom Fit Bowling Ball
    I never used the @*#* thing as suddenly both of my thumbs (I'm ambidextrous) were arthritic ending a mediocre career in bowling.
  • Dumbest thing to spend $ on
    Catholic school tuition, my daughter is now an atheist.
  • Dumb and Dumber
    A pure bred beagle for my mother.
  • "I am out"
    Referee slacks when the next month, these were deemed ineligible to wear! Timing!!!
  • I was vulnerable
    One of those hand lotion kits that the guys at the mall hassle you about trying and buying!
  • iPOD
    I purchased an iPOD for my son and he lost it two weeks later.
  • Bread Machine
    Takes all the fun out of "home made" bread.
  • Groupons and Kiosk Zombies
    I too was vulnerable and bought one of those hand lotion kits and sadly more from the kiosk zombies at the mall. But, my most expensive and idiotic purchases would have to be for Groupons. I bought too much all at once and never had the time to use them.
  • dumbest thing ever spent money on
    mexican jumping beans
  • Bought or donated
    The money I gave as a kid to a religious fringe group.
  • Insurance loan
    Many years ago I took out a small loan on my life insurance policy. Dumb me didn't pay attention to it and interest has increased the loan 8-fold. If I don't want the amount deducted from the proceeds, I got to pay it off now. Dumb me.
  • Stupid Payment
    We paid a fee up front to sell a timeshare week. Of course, no luck. Dumb move years ago.
  • Dumb (with a Capital B)
    A Pet Rock (fortunately a LONG time ago)
  • tickets
    food that I had a coupon for, which never got eatten because it had rotted
  • dumb purchase
    I can think of a few - since the gym membership has already been stated - I will confess I bought an Oreck vacuum

    freelance writer
  • Dumbest Thing
    Sue, I'll go you one better. The bread mixes I bought after we got rid of our bread making machine. Sheesh......

  1. Liberals do not understand that marriage is not about a law or a right ... it is a rite of religous faith. Liberals want "legal" recognition of their homosexual relationship ... which is OK by me ... but it will never be classified as a marriage because marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman. You can gain / obtain legal recognition / status ... but most people will not acknowledge that 2 people of the same sex are married. It's not really possible as long as marriage is defined as one man and one woman.

  2. That second phrase, "...nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens..." is the one. If you can't understand that you lack a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and I can't help you. You're blind with prejudice.

  3. Why do you conservatives always go to the marrying father/daughter, man/animal thing? And why should I keep my sexuality to myself? I see straights kissy facing in public all the time.

  4. I just read the XIV Amendment ... I read where no State shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property ... nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens ... I didn't see anything in it regarding the re-definition of marriage.

  5. I worked for Community Health Network and the reason that senior leadership left is because they were not in agreement with the way the hospital was being ran, how employees were being treated, and most of all how the focus on patient care was nothing more than a poster to stand behind. Hiring these analyst to come out and tell people who have done the job for years that it is all being done wrong now...hint, hint, get rid of employees by calling it "restructuring" is a cheap and easy way out of taking ownership. Indiana is an "at-will" state, so there doesn't have to be a "reason" for dismissal of employment. I have seen former employees that went through this process lose their homes, cars, faith...it is very disturbing. The patient's as well have seen less than disireable care. It all comes full circle.
