More info for those thinking about leasing

Here's an article I found on msn this morning at work. Info to add to the whole lease vs buy topic that's been brought up many times. Don't shoot the messenger. Peace, not war.

Again, to cut to the chase, isn't the strongest argument for leasing that you will get a new car before an installment loan is even paid-off? That you would never keep a car very long?

Here we F****** go again with the deduction of an expense. Like the republican candidate said businesses should be able to write-off an asset in year one. The m****** f****** thing has no book value year 2? WTF does that do to the statement of profits year 1 vs. year 2-12, say on a transit vehicle? I know, I know, not everyone finished high school, so we shouldn't expect them to think much about the value of a dollar.
