7 Ways That Prove Politeness Can Guarantee Positive Connections With Others Everyone wants to be liked and cared about, so consider the power of culture For quite a while now we've heard many public figures, like Rush Limbaugh and comedian Bill Maher, express scorn toward people who are politically correct.

How to Deal With An Auto Loan After Divorce Divorce is not only emotionally difficult for you but it is also difficult to your financial condition. How?
