In 1994, the we went on our first vacation and we videoed the entire thing. The chips were so small, that we just couldn’t help videoing them.
At one point at the beginning of the video I make a comment something like “Gas is $1.20 a gallon. This is getting ridiculous!”
And the chips never fail to tease me about this whenever we pass a gas station.
Gas was $2.80 yesterday and it excited me. How sad that $2.80 a gallon of gas is exciting, but it is. You see even though falling gas prices are hurting the global economy and the national economy, it is really helping my personal economy. That is why it is exciting me.
A friend of mine found a wonderful interesting, common sense, article with no hype about the economy and the stock market. If you’d like to read it, you can find it here.
I was having an interesting discussion with someone and she asked “What would happen in our society if there was no credit for any purchases other than for a mortgage, all purchases regardless of amount had to be cash only? You could use a debit card or check, but no credit whatsoever.”
So I am asking you the same question. Also, not only what would happen to society, but what would happen to your family personally. How would no credit, not having a credit card, not even being able to secure a loan for a car…how would that affect you personally?
Friendly warning. Keep this discussion polite. This isn’t a political debate. I WILL delete any post that isn’t polite.
