  • 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. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in 1997...in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny thing....rich people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
