OOPS! When will our personal debt include our per capita share of monetized promises and obligations made by the United States Federal Government, issued by the US Treasury and partially purchased by the Federal Reserve, the private banking cartel which is not Federal and has no Reserves? Who really believes the trillion$ and trillion$ of debt issued in our name will not soon be called on to be paid by US? Per capita total debt has greatly increased recently and this appears to be a continuing trend for the foreseeable future.

Radio news last week revealed citizens are unloading debt during this economic crisis that which was created by the NEW RINO party that first entered the scene in 1980 which brought on Reaganomics/Wreckanomics that which has cost the nation 15-20 million USA jobs.

This is the problem

  1. The Reagan/ Bush Home Loan Scandal = lost jobs,lost retirement and lost medical insurance not to mention loss of homes! And a Wreckanomic economy.

"JasonM (Anonymous) says… Liars."

Who is lying about what? I'm certainly not lying. I carry no debt right now. I certainly could if I wanted, but I choose to spend within my means and invest right now. This doesn't mean I recycle my toilet paper like Richard - I live comfortably, just intelligently.

I have no personal debt. I am responsible for myself!

I do not depend on the govt to bail me out, send me food stamps, pay my health care, my mortgage or rent, or any other hand out!

Be responsible!

My debt increased over the past year because I purchased a different car and now have a car loan I didn't have last year. But I hope it lasts me well past my last car payment and that the money for the car payment can be set aside for future auto-related expenses.

My debt has reduced . . . thank you, Dave Ramsey!!

Ditched all my credit cards and paid most of them off. Will get rid of my Capital One debt by year's end. And then I'll be completely, utterly debt-free... bliss

Way to go, Ernest! We are doing the same. I wonder if the whole credit rating game will fall apart if enough of us dump the habit.
