Liberty


 I’ve always wanted to visit the Statue of Liberty.  Unfortunately, I’ve never even got this close.


I have visited New York several times, but most of the trips were fairly quick with little time for sightseeing.  The only visit, where there was enough time, was in 1985.  My daughter and I saw a number of tourist spots including a visit to the top of the Empire State building and a carriage ride in Central Park.  Unfortunately,  this was during the statue’s restoration period, so we couldn’t even ferry to the island and had to settle for viewing it from a distance through a lot of staging.  As a lover of personal and national freedom, I found it a bit ironic that we were unable to visit this symbol of our liberty, even though I appreciated its restoration. 

Who likes to be told what they can and can’t do?  People, who have tried to get a loan, can appreciate that.  There can be a lot of paperwork and a lot of hoops to jump through and all that hoop-jumping may still lead to a denial, particularly if they lack a credit history or have experienced credit problems.

I think that’s one of the reasons that people are obtaining titleloans in Santa Barbara, CA, New York City and everywhere in between. With a title loan, the value of their car, rather than their credit rating, secures the loan and owners can keep driving their cars.  Loans may range from as little as five-hundred dollars to highs of fifteen-thousand dollars.  While an outstanding balance on the vehicle will lower the amount of the loan, some folks may be able to obtain a title loan, even if their vehicle isn’t totally paid off.  The application process is streamlined and cash is available quickly. These loans are also attractive, because they can be used for any purpose from paying bills to financing a college education. A title loan can even be used to take a vacation.  Personally, I wouldn’t do that, but the option is there for those who want it.  That’s a lot of freedom!
