Did You Know? President's Day Edition

 It's time again for Did You Know?  On DYK days here at Escheatable, we try provide you with interesting information regarding the unclaimed property laws to amaze your friends and frighten your enemies.


In honor of President's Day, Escheatable is highlighting some of the unclaimed property owed to presidents.  New York, for example, is holding property for George Washington (as well as Bill Clinton and Martin Van Buren).  California is holding property for Abe Lincoln (and George W. Bush and John F. Kennedy).  New Jersey is holding property for its own Woodrow Wilson (he was born in Virginia, but ran for office as a resident of New Jersey).  Nor are only the most well-known presidents entitled to escheated funds.  There are items for Warren HardingRutherford Hayes, James K. Polk, and Grover Cleveland.  Even Sam Houston, the first (and third) President of The Republic of Texas is owed money in his (adopted) home state. 

As we celebrate President's Day today, lets honor those who appear on our money by (among other things) teaching others how to find their own.

  1. If she kept 160 million and gave everything else to charity she could act the way she acts now like the typical entitled rich kid who thinks everything they have is deserved because of what a great person they are Coach Outlet Online Store with all the worst traits in full view. But then again if she wasn such a self centered, arrogant, entitled, narcissistic person then she would already shared more. If you look into her life you see clear signs of what a toxic person she is. Quite amazing that her books aren filled with this toxicity to be honest.

    If you looked into what she is funding you would like her charity even less because a huge portion of it is just paying salaries for the "right people", the parties, the fundraisers, the events. Less than 50% of what she paid probably went to the target demographics.

    Truth is that she won a lottery worth over a billion dollars and counting. She got lucky that big business saw the potential in film rights and merchandising and pusher coach outlet store online her books as marketing tools for that giant industry.

    You could literally take anyone else with similar content and put them official coach factory outlet online in her place at that specific time and you would get the same result. You know it because since Harry Potter she was literally unable to replicate even a fraction of her success.

    But oh my Coach.com god what coach factory website a wonderful person she is.

    FWIW, the "no walls/curtains thing" is changing as places remodel to attract foreigner renters (higher prices) and more middle class Vietnamese fit out their bathrooms in more Western styles.

    Of the 4 places I lived in Vietnam, only 1 had the "shower in the corner" thing. The other three were just like you find in the US. That said, I in Saigon, not Danang, so I wouldn be surprised if Danang is a few years behind the curve on that.

    FWIW, I didn really mind the shower in the corner thing when I had it. It just means the floor is wet sometimes.
