    My opinion comes from personal observations in a previous war, and the media, yes. The media isn't always wrong, except Fox News...

    yeah MSNBC and CNN are known for their unbiased presentations

    and ABC is always honest--that's why their NIGHTLINE presentation on BUsh letting the clinton gun ban sunset started out with 4 minutes of footage of LA bankrobbers spraying the city streets with fully automatic illegal AKM machine guns

    LOL, nice act as a liberal instead of being a moderate as you claim. Fox News? My family members weren't on Fox News and I base my observations based upon talking to individuals who were actually there. One in military intelligence stationed in the main Saddam Hussein palace who had access to a quite a bit of confidential information. That of course pales in comparison to your observations so carry on.

No new cars, tho. We still have ample income and more than enough savings in the wife's accounts. BUT, we are done with that for a while, until we NEED a new car.
    Smart people take care of themselves, and their personal economies. We can't take pesonal responsibility for the national economy.
    Same here - I've paid off a good portion of my credit cards, paid off my truck - and I have no intention of getting back into debt once I'm out unless it's extremely important.
    I'm not about to feel bad about beefing up my savings account in the process, either.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Doesn't mean bailing out Bank of America, AIG, or Goldman-Sachs either. Obama has his constituency, and Senate Republicans have theirs, although I hope the tea party has scared them a little now.

    I didn't support the BoA, AIG, or Goldman-Sachs bailout either but they happened. The real problem is the Obama economic policy which just prolonged the job losses and economic malaise all by design.

    Keep at it, I have been nagging our 2 kids about paying down/off their mortgages. The boy can't, not yet, but should be able to make a dent in it if and when he gets promoted to asst. principal. The girl is doing real well, will have hers paid off in a few years if things keep going as they are. She co-owns a website that is part couponing, part affilate marketing, part "how to save money on purchases" forum.
    Neither of them carry any other kind of debt. I threaten them that if they start carrying credit card debt, they will be out of the will the next day. It ain't small change that they will get.

    Last year she made more in one year than I ever did unless there was a lot of overtime involved. This year, she has already surpassed that by quite a bit, and this month is her busy season. It plays well in western mountain states, would be fantastic if she could get more membership in other states. I will PM the name to you...if you want it.
