In-your-face stuff from an opinionated
rural north Idaho housewife.
I can't remember who to attribute this to, but consider it properly attributed to the author :These days, “Need” means you want someone else’s money.“Greed” means you want to keep your own.“Compassion” is when a politician arranges the transfer.- Charlie
My understanding is that inflation is low (despite all the "best" efforts of the Illuminati to inspire it) mostly because 'Mericans are spooked about entering into new loans. I think that's the "Consumer Confidence Index" I've heard about. I bought a home in Central FL at the peak of the market and came dangerously close to being part of the foreclosure statistic when I was laid off. Now, in my early 30's, I'm equally afraid of taking on new loans/debt as I am about the future stability of my income-earning potential. Once burned, twice careful, I suppose. And I understand that this is a common sentiment among many so-called "Millennials" and is why renting instead of owning is more popular. The Wall St. Fat Cats shouldn't be too surprised at this, they are the one's who profited from the mess in the first place and now feel sad that no one wants to play ball with them again.
Oh, how I wish I were not " evil ", I would love to take some money and spend it on underwear or a winter coat, maybe a few new sweatshirts, a vacation would be nice. Vacation was ripped from our vocabulary in 08, No, any " extra money " ( what an oxymoron ) will be for the purchase of food , I can not eat any of the above, call me a " hoarder " if you will, I call it common sense.
