I came home to her crying over this bloody furball wrapped in a towel

I don’t feel loss over the deaths of loved ones, pets, or much else. It seemed like it should be done at the time.

How can we make him see a doctor or psychologist without him realizing it?

I have 4 kids and am trying to encourage them to be expressive with their feelings and such but that’s like having an atheist teach a bible class. I’m doing my best to assure them a relatively normal life.

I’m actually just fine with who I am. I’m confident, employed as a writer, have wife #2 until that is destroyed which it will be eventually. I don’t take any medications unless they are for recreation.

I have hurt people and animals before but not because I enjoyed it

My two biggest emotions are anger and boredom. If I’m extremely bored it used to mean I’d cause trouble but luckily I just play video games and keep to myself.

My friend first brought up that he thought I was a sociopath at age 18 because he was one. The difference is that he is very manipulative. He knew I knew what he was doing and seemed to like showing it off to me. I didn’t care enough to bother with manipulating people but it was impressive how he did it. This gave me a general disdain for the public because most people are so stupid. anon164

I have to agree with anon605. I have no doubt in my mind that I am and have always been a sociopath. Like they said, I don’t go out of my way to harm others but I really don’t care that much about the stupid little issues that plague the city I live in, couldn’t care less about Mrs. X who’s house burns down, etc..

Actually, I usually will help people if they need it and it isn’t an inconvenience to me. I also don’t lie that much. Read More

Unlike in the subprime mortgage crisis, the most predatory brokers aren’t peddling bank loans

Unlike in the subprime mortgage crisis, the most predatory brokers aren’t peddling bank loans

We need common sense regulations to keep the most predatory brokers in check, and here are a few steps that Washingtoncan take right now:First, let’s strengthen federal oversight

The truth is that some brokers actually do help, offering sage counsel to small business owners to help them find the loan that best suits their needs. These respectable brokers typically earn modest fees of 1% to 3%, and that fee is paid by lenders without having any impact on the cost of the loans to borrowers.

But, small business owners are increasingly likely to encounter brokers who are out for themselves. In fact, unscrupulous players have emerged like wolves in sheep’s clothing, and are deliberately building tricks and traps into the loan process to pad their pockets and ensnare borrowers in a cycle of high-cost debt. For example, just last week a small business owner applied for a loan on the Fundera platform and was quoted an interest rate of under 30%. A few days prior that borrower had applied for the same loan product, but had gone through a broker who quoted a rate of 45%. The 15 percentage point difference is what the broker was pocketing for himself as his “finder’s fee”, and would have been passed onto to the unsuspecting borrower entirely unbeknownst to them.
