Kanye West


How Dare You Compare Yourself to Cops!

1212-chief-david-oliver-ap-2-articleA police chief in Ohio is GOING OFF on Kanye West -- tearing the guy apart for comparing himself to cops and soldiers ... saying Kanye has NO CLUE about the real dangers they face. 

The cop with the beef is Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver ... who says he was listening when Kanye told a media outlet that he puts his life on the line at his rap concerts ... just like cops and soldiers.

Chief Oliver was so angry, he posted an open letter to West on the department's Facebook page ... saying, "You sir, are as misguided as they come."

The majority of the letter is dripping in sarcasm, mocking Kanye for the ridiculous comparison:

"Since you are accustomed to danger, from your life as an international rapper, I am strongly encouraging you immediately abandon you career as a super star and join the military."

"After joining, I would like you to volunteer to be deployed in Afghanistan or one of the numerous other forward locations where our men an women are currently serving. When the Taliban starts shooting at you, perhaps you could stand up and let the words flow."

"I’m sure they would just drop weapons and surrender. You could quite possibly end all wars, just from the enemy being star-struck."

The letter ends, "What I do not get is you EVER comparing what you do for a living to our heroic military members, who are always in harm’s way… and my brother and sister police officers who have to go to work carrying weapons and wearing a bullet-proof vest to protect themselves."

"Check yourself, before you wreck yourself….Chief Oliver."

Hate to say it - okay, no I don't, but this police chief and everyone else is feeding right into what Kanye said. This is exactly what he wanted when he said what he said. He wanted attention and he wanted to shock people. Congrats guys. Kanye wins. He knows what he said is stupid and outrageous. He wants this type of attention. Don't you all get it by now??!

What a pompous a$$ KW is. He is so full of himself he's about to explode! It was hysterical watching his interview on the Ellen DeGeneres Show - you could tell it was taking everything she had to not bust out laughing as this arrogant so-called rapper! And his new video? If that's what you call "music" these days, I'm going back to listening to Elvis and the oldies!

KW will NEVER get one CENT of my money! His wife is about as pathetic as he is, too - not sure what a "Kardashian" is - but I'd rather not wast a minute of my precious life "keeping up with them!" Never watched them, never will.

I LOVE Chief Oliver - find him on Facebook! This guy ROCKS!!!

Police, army, navy, marines and airforce people are heroes they keep this fool free so he can talk sh## in a free coubtry. He is delusional the only danger he faces is Kim K. Please he has no more talent than the rest of Hollywood people !!!! He is a clown only cursing and talking fast?? I don't see the talent he is a fool stop comparing yourself to people who actually work and those who are an example for the youth. I don't think a goof patent would want their kids saying "when I want to grow up, I want to be like K. West"

Monthly lease payments are usually lower than purchase payments, and while this seems attractive, it doesn't always mean you get more bang for the buck. Leasing can actually cost you more in the long run. A car that gets regular maintenance and check-ups can last 10 years or more, while leases generally end in two or three. Therefore, if you continue to lease one car after another, you never break the car payment cycle, as you would when the car you buy is paid in full even if it's financed on a long loan. For example, if you plan on purchasing a mid-range sedan at a monthly lease payment of $200 a month, it means you would pay $7,200 over the course of a three-year contract. The purchasing payment is higher at $255 a month, totaling $15,300 over a five-year loan. However, once the car is paid off, the payments stop, and that car can last up to 10 years with proper care. Leasing all that time at $200 a month will end up costing you $24,000, and you still won't own a car.
And Miles to Go

So you've got that fancy new vehicle and you're ready to show it off on a road trip. Sounds fun, but don't plan on driving that leased car cross-country if you don't have to. With the limited mileage allowed annually in a lease contract, even a long work commute can come back to bite you in additional over-mileage fees and costs when you turn the car in. Dealers often charge for each additional mile over the limit, so be sure to figure out how much you'll be driving that car before you decide to lease.

Many people think they're stuck with a vehicle when they buy a car outright and look to leasing as a viable option. However, most lease contracts contain a penalty for early termination, meaning that if you no longer love that car or are struggling with payments, you could end up with stiff fines for returning the car early. If you return the vehicle at the allotted time, it has to be in great condition, so there could be significant penalties for the dings and dangs that happen to all cars along the way.
Nothing to Call Your Own

Leasing a car is sort of like renting an apartment. You really can't claim ownership of anything, the car really isn't an asset and you can't completely modify it the way you would like. So what it boils down to is you've made monthly payments, but at the end you really don't own anything. Sure, it's great to have a new toy with the latest technology, but at the end of a lease you're only left with the options of either purchasing the car for its retail value or leasing another.
