MONEY: Live debt free

People demanded change and it’s coming

The time of politicians listening to the will of the people has long passed. They are no longer our servants, they are our masters. Masters who demand we continue down the same road that has failed us for years.

What are we going to do about it?

As for me, I have decided to take hold of my future by preparing for very uncertain times. I live debt free. I live within my means. I don’t have the biggest house in town. But I sleep well and know that when they screw things up even worse than they already have, I can pay my bills because I don’t invest in their nonsense. I own land, gold, cash and a very small amount of stock.

I suggest you do the same.

I fully intend to expose and vote against everyone who voted for this foolish bill. Any member of Congress who voted for this bill should never be re-elected. They have blatantly disregarded the cries of the constituents who gave them their jobs. They may have ignored us once without a consequence but not twice.

Shame on whom this time?

Seems like a good plan to me.

It goes hand in hand with my first element of my “Success for your generation” that is “(1) ruthless financial discipline — no bad debt;”

Maybe Dave Ramsey IS right!

GUNS: O pulls pilot’s guns “silently”!

Obama secretly ends program that lets pilots carry guns
– The Washington Times

*** begin quote ***

After the September 11 attacks, commercial airline pilots were allowed to carry guns if they completed a federal safety program. No longer would unarmed pilots be defenseless as remorseless hijackers seized control of aircraft and rammed them into buildings. Now President Obama is quietly ending the federal firearms program, risking public safety on airlines in the name of an anti gun ideology.

So much for “openness” and “trasparency”!
