Online Trading with First Trade.

The internet has become a tool that is important to many Americans.  It is one of the most used tools for purchasing, for information and for trading stocks and bonds.  Yes, it is a very important tool for those who do Online Trading.

I am one of those people.  I use the internet portal for my Online Broker.  I have one of my IRA Accounts invested and implemented with my internet account.  I have not yet started using Mobile Trading because I have not changed out to a Smart Phone yet.  However, I am looking forward to having that ability in the future. 

I guess the point of giving this information is to give the idea that there is a large amount of Stock Trading that is done online.  It is also to let everyone know that there are great online companies for the purpose of accomplishing this type of trading and activity in a fast, affordable manner.  One of the companies that I have found that seems to be very good in this category is First Trade.  It can be found at

Check it out.

Confused About Amerca's Financing

Life in America struggles with the knowledge that he has and the things that he hears but doesn't understand about what America does with its money. The deficit in America today is at a record $1.42 trillion dollars. That makes me and my children and grand children and great grandchildren all in debt. How can we get over that.

With that great deficit in mind, why oh why do we have headlines like this:

U.S. Aid to Egypt Totals $28 Billion in Three Decades

I am not sure how the math works because I am not sure how many zeros to put in each of those big numbers.   But if you take the $1.42 billion and divided that by $28 billion it appears that if we stopped spending the aid to Egypt that in just a few years the deficit would go away.

And that is just Egypt.  We do this to hundreds of countries that do not need it and who do not like America.  Fix that Mr. President.

Merchant Account Providers

Many people are starting their own line business these days and need help in many areas to get the sight up and running smoothly.  This type of business gives need to the need to a desire to decide when and how the new online site that you have created will receive its money.  What is one to do in this situation.
Well the first thing is to find an online company where you can set up a merchant account that gives you the option to take money through credit card payments, bank transfers through an  ach merchant account, mail or phone payments or maybe even other ways to get your money that you have never thought of. 
There is a great site that I have found that seems to be the place to get your merchant account done in a way that can absolutely get your money flowing in the way you want it to.  That website is  So if you have an online site or even if you have a brick and mortar site, this company can get you the tools that you need to make your business work.
This is my thoughts on that.

Where would Life in America be without a change in Weather.  We hardly ever get snow but today we may have our second snow of 2011.

Problem is that we are not prepared with all of the equipment that we need as a state to get the job done. 

Guess, it will all be ok.  Probably just enough to make it miserable but not stay home from work. 

Here is a picture from our last snow.

Online Freebies

What a great site that I have found that has freebies for just about anything and any way that you might want them.  Yes, this site has just about every  type of free samples that you might imagine.  I got on the site and was so fascinated that I went through every page to see what I could get for free.   I did actually sign up for a few things and they should arrive soon.

So what is it that you can get on this site.  Well, how about free cell phones free food samples, free movie tickets, free coffee and all kinds of other free stuff.  Yes, that is what I found on that site.  Just about everything free that you could think of. Yes, while I was there I found that I could get free mail samples, some free trial offers, many types of online freebies and it was all available to me by using

So, my question is, how can you lose.  If you like to get free stuff or free trials of all kinds of products that are things that you might use daily then you will want to check out this site.  Oh yes.  My last question is did I say it was free.

That is my thoughts on all of this free stuff.  What are you thoughts?

What in America did you see today?

Where has your life in America taken you today. Have you had the opportunity to see the Skyline of New York City.

Have you had the opportunity to see the Golden Gate Bridge.
Have you had the opportunity to be on Martha's Vinyard
Have you had the opportunity to see the Gulf Coast
Have you had the opportunity to see Niagara Falls - Frozen
Have you had the opportunity to see the Grand Canyon
Have you had the opportunity to see Mt Rushmore.

All of these are great but I didn't see any of those today.  I actually have seen only one of those.  Guess Which one.

Life in America on the Little Red River

Always wishing I was on the Little Red River or in the out of doors in Arkansas.  This is one of my favorite places in America.  I saw this picture and it made me think of the fun time I have had there.

A little more about the River:

Little Red River, emerging icy cold from beneath massive dam at Greers Ferry Lake is a premier-class trout stream. Trout were introduced to the Little Red in 1966, some three years after the completion of the lake project. Rainbows, browns and cutthroats are caught for some 35-river miles below the dam. Howard "Rip" Collins caught a 40-pound, four-ounce world record brown on the river in 1992...a mark that still stands. Full service marinas and resorts are available along the upper sections of the Little Red. Both public and resort launch areas are conveniently located on both sides of the river. Attractions in the area include the William Carl Garner/Corps of Engineers Visitor Center, hiking trails overlooking the river, trout hatchery; plus boating, fishing, and resort villages around the lake.

Used Cars in Tampa?

There are times when you need a good used car in America.  Today I would like to talk about getting the best used cars in Tampa.  Why does this sound like a good topic today.  Well it is a good topic because sometimes you just need to know where and how to find the best used cars or used trucks.  

A Site that I have found to give you some of the best information about Tampa or Tampa Bay area used cars or maybe the entire Florida area is  This site has a great choice of used cars available in that area such as the Ford Focus or the Nissan Sentra.   They probably have whatever vehicle you are looking for and can get you to the best used vehicle in Tampa for the best price.

So, if you are in the area of Tampa Bay, Florida or the Florida area in general you need to look at this site.  It can give you the right information and the right links to get you to the right vehicle to serve your purpose.  It says that they can even get you 30 second online credit approval.

This is my thoughts here at Life in America.  Enjoy.

Cam Newton - Auburn

America can rest easy.  Cam Newton with all of his glory has declared for the NFL Draft.  I believe that was apparent when his dad with all of his controversy went against what he had told Auburn.   Yes, the dad who was in serious trouble and was told he could not attend any functions of the University told Auburn he would not be at the National Championship game.

After the game the cameras showed Cam hugging his dad in the fans.  This told me that he was dishonest and all that he had said earlier had no strength.  He lied to the University as if to say, we don't care we will not be here last year.

Auburn - what do you think now.

Cars are fun.   I am always looking at car sites and trying to find out more about the latest and greatest models.  This is fun to do but it also allows me have great information when I decide to buy a new car. 

That is why I like  It gives me this type of information and allows me to learn about such cars as the Hyundai Elantra Sport or maybe the Ford Taurus Sel.  Both are great cars and this site allows me to see the good and the things that I like or dislike about each.   After studying these cars I decided to move on and see how they stack up against other vehicles. 

The next two cars that I looked at were the toyota in general and then the acura.  I like these cars and more particular the acura.  I guess that If I were buying tomorrow that is what I would buy.  This site gave me the opportunity to really make this decision.

So, if you are a car nut or if you are looking to buy a new car you might want to check out this site.  You might also find out that there is even more information than just comparing the vehicles.  Check it out yourself.


Sometimes it seems that life is tougher than it should be.  Today everything has to be politically correct, tiptoed around or just kept quiet when you would like to shout it out and say it like it is.  However, that is not the way it is.

When things are going good the job is easy and sometimes even fun.  When things seem to be not going the way you think it should, with others apparently not holding up their end of the job, then it just seems to stink.

Friends retirement party today seems like a beginning for the friend.  Makes me jealous and more ready for retirement but cant afford it today.

Lung Cancer Stages–Great Info

Lung Cancer is on the minds of my family.  We have had some that have died of it and we have had personal scares thinking that one of the immediate family might have either lung cancer or something wrong in the lungs that could later turn to cancer.  That is why this topic is important to me.

That is also why it is important to find out about lung cancer stages.  Yes, there are various lung cancer stages and knowing something about each of these stages is important to your health if you have any diagnosis or questions about this.  That is where which offers high quality content on all types of information related to health, preventative health and wellness is important.  On their site they have excellent information and their Lung Cancer Stages article is superb in giving the information that is important to read.

So, if you have interest in Lung Cancer for personal or just inquisitive reasons then this is a site that you should check out.

That is my thoughts for now.

TV Tonight

What will you be watching on Television tonight.  The problem that we have is that the National Champion game between Auburn and Oregon is on tonight and we want to watch that.  It should be a good game and many believe that it will be high scoring and that the last team with the ball will win.

The next problem is that one of our favorite shows, Castle, is new tonight.  We have the DVR set to record Castle but that may be watched live if the game is slow about that time. 

What will you watch tonight.  Your choice but many will watch the game.

IRA GOLD or 401K Gold– the Younger the Better.

Early in life every worker should try to start an IRA or a 401k account for retirement savings.  This is a good thing.  If you have done this you might also want to consider making a gold IRA or a gold 401k.  With the way that gold can increase in price this would be a good thing also.

So, just imagine that you have an IRA gold account or a 401k gold account and gold increases rapidly.  All of a sudden your account is worth a lot more money.  Well, how do you get these accounts or manage these accounts.  The only way that I know to do this is to go out to the web and find a company such as  They appear to be a company that can help you manage these accounts and can make that gold IRA transfer if that is what you need to have.

So, to sum it all up, it is imperative that the young people of America start a retirement account as early as they can in their work career so that they can retire as early as possible with enough money to live comfortably.  It also appears to be a good thing to put gold into these retirement accounts with a good management company or a good information company being used to make sure that what you do makes sense and is right rather than just doing what you think with no guidance.

This is my thoughts for now and Life in America is Good.

Lets go Fishing.

All of the fantasy fishing stuff that I am playing makes me want to go fishing.

I am in Arkansas and am taking names of the best places to fish in Arkansas.

Drop by and tell me Where to go fishing and what type of fish can be caught at this time of the year.  It is a little cold outside but I know how to bundle up.

I live only 5 miles from a lock on the Arkansas River.  Is there anything that I can fish for there. 
Can you tell that I am a rookie fisherman.

All that I know is that any day of fishing certainly does beat work.

Superb Servers–Ahead of the Rest

Life in America always has a need and a desire to have the best web hosting  possible for the different sites that are hosted on the web.  I am also finding that it is important to have a managed hosting service that has something that they call colocation

The first thing that I had to find out is what was colocation and why was that important to me in my need for good web hosting.  Well the answer to that was that this is hosting that is backed up and ran from more than one site so that if one of the sites goes down it is immediately reconnected to the second site so that there is little or no down time.  Well, at least that is how I understand it as somewhat of a novice at this hosting thing.

So if you are needing excellent hosting with all of the features of above and more then there is probably a site that you would want to check out as a great possibility.  That site is one that is at this site:

If you check them out you will probably find that they are what you might want if you are serious about your web hosting.

Better Bathrooms with

What can Life in America say about  I can say that it appears to be a website that shows you everything that you need to have to revolve your bathroom from what it is now to what you want it to be.  The next thing that I must say is that it is a site that have a sale for January that has 60% off.  The next thing that I would say is that it gives an English touch to the Bathroom since it is a site that appears to be from that country. 

This site shows you what is available in many things such as bathroom mirrors, whirlpool baths, jacuzzi’s and much, much more.  Yes, this appears to be a site that has what you need in your bathroom suite. 

So if you are in need of things for your bathroom and you have the ability to order or use this site then you must check it out.  You might even want to check out their bathroom cascade waterfall for your bathroom.  That is one of the unique things that I have found there that really intrigued me.

So, if you are intrigued check it out and that would be my thoughts for now on bathrooms.  Check me out later I might discuss kitchens or something more.
