Compare This to the July 15 Hawk Eye Article

      A. Copy of my paid submission in The Hawk Eye (July 20, 2000).
      B. If you believe the "AFFIDAVIT OF PROBABLE CAUSE" why wasn't I charged with sexual assault? The victim being "I'M THE MAYOR OF BURLINGTON" (Tim Scott)
      C. Ref: My ad…No I’m not trying to play woe as me, but rather just telling you the probability of me beating the 43 year old 6’3” #225 "I'M THE MAYOR OF BURLINGTON" and also being an ex-MP and a reserve police officer. As a general rule, I don’t generally inspire fear, with my imposing stature to anybody~~~the only fight that I ever lost, was the time I slipped and fell; and she caught me.

More continuum from 7-26-06

In an earlier Edward Jones ad (5-17-06 The Hawk Eye) my FRIENDS
Matt and Richard said:


Searching for the highest rates on CDs may be smart, but there’s an even better way to get the most out of CDs.

At Edward Jones, we can show you how to do just that. We’ll work with you to develop a plan for investing in CDs. You’ll enjoy the income you want, without tying all your money up for years at a time.

To learn about a CD strategy that makes sense, call or visit your local investment representative today.

**I don’t know what their strategy is;
is it more than choosing term length and/or maturity dates.
And is it worth up to .40% or more**


 NOTE: My standard disclaimer, I don’t want to be accused of taking something out of context. All partial representations of Edward Jones ads mentioned can be found in The Hawk Eye at dates listed.

Good News/Bad News

Good news, is that the talent of the website (hint it’s not Ron Thornton) now has more time available. I can and may post on other websites occasionally. But, truth be told, I don’t have the expertise to post on my own website; hence the reason for the inactivity.

The bad news is I’m back. Hey! I never claimed to be a comedy writer.

I see my friends at Edward Jones namely Matt Skogen and Richard L. Fruland (said with a truck load of sarcasm) wants some more of your money. For my true feelings click here.

2- yr. 5.45% APY* Min. deposit $ 5,000
