Comment How Car Insurance REALLY works (Score 1) 231

Okay ladies and gents, here's the scoop. Auto insurance companies are HIGHLY regulated. They are, by law, only able to make a small amount of profit off premium. Usually about 80% of premium made goes immediately out the door back to the policyholders. The other 20% goes to running the business. Money is made off of global market investments. So yes, it is likely that your rates will go down. Unless of the course the sensors on the cars are so expensive that if they were to get damaged in, say, a flood or hail storm, they would be crazy expensive to fix. There are lots of ways a car can get damaged other than accidents.

M-16? An AK-47? A 100 round clip? There is simply NO reason for military weapons to be in civilian hands.

I'd take the time to point out all the things that are wrong with those two sentences but I've found that gun grabbers who don't actually know anything guns (like you) hate facts and use emotion, only emotion, to advance their I won't bother.

NO! That is an outright lie and you know it. Every time I hear someone make a racial issue out of something that is clearly not a racial issue, I want to puke. You are piece of human trash for perpetuating this B.S.

Yes, it's a knee-jerk reaction. However, our government agencies have done this to themselves. Most of the outrage is probably coming from people who saw "FBI" and "website" in the same sentence and just assumed they did something bad. I can't say I really blame them all that much.

YOU HYPOCRITES! The hypocrisy in half of these posts is incredible. You all freak out when you hear the government is spying on you or some other techy right is being violated, but as soon you hear these people are...GASP...Christians, then it's "I don't give a crap that they purchased the right to use the space, screw their first amendment rights and the horse they rode in on!!!!!!!!!!" Stop cherry-picking when it comes to certain groups' right to assemble and speak. It makes you all look like a bunch of ignorant d-bags.

Stellar rays prove fibbing never pays. Embezzlement is another matter.
