    I think it applies to Congress/politicians as well now that we know most of those who voted for the Iraq invasion never actaully read the reports on IRaq by the intelligence organizations. And that’s not funny–it’s really, really sad. I can always leave a poorly run company, but leave a poorly run country? Not easily.

    You will also be able to contact specialist advisors directly by email
    and telephone if you have any more questions.
    Start by calling dealerships and asking the finance director if they use a traditional FICO credit score
    to make their lending decision or if they use the FICO Auto Industry Option score.

    Lenders are able to charge a fee after a certain number
    of days past your due date.
