so, might not take bad credit too lightly if you want a decent job overall.
Sometimes # happens and you gotta just deal with having bad credit...but if your simply not paying out of spite or whatever, well, then your a bit of a loser (not the ops...just a general statement)...if you buy something then have the ability to pay for it but refuse to..then that makes you a thief, not a rebel...just a thief.
Your points are valid, it is just we should be at the point where we don't care what anyone thinks about us. Your view on society is based on many years of brainwashing. I feel bad for people with similar views as yours.
It is a revolution of the entire system altogether. Soon enough, the system will crumble, and many of those people that worked so hard their entire lives to obtain wealth, will be the next group to come out swinging and joining our ranks.
Even if we do this by choice now, the FED and the entire US economic system is a much bigger thief then we could ever be.
Tit for tat.. Payback is a bitch.
STAND UP, and do not be afraid. Credit will become something we laugh about in the future, like the rotary telephone.

But this was MY DEBT! I signed a contract that explained this IN FULL! This is on me, regardless of what asshats I think they are for not screwing me over due to a 1 day late payment. These companies WANT you to pay late. They are praying that you do. Only way to really give them the finger, is never give them your business again. I just don't get the "omg these are evil companies and don't deserve my money!" angle. You signed something that covered everything, you bought the stuff, you defaulted, the onus is on you to fix it.

... Now while I dont think your the problem with society, i do take a grim view of people who borrow borrow borrow, then when they are expected to pay, just ignore it because they are broke.

Last year the company I work for was down to a four day week for management. With pay cut. Our manufacturing arm, a 24/7 operation, was cut to 40 hours with requisite lay offs. As of Sept. 2009, I myself received a 16% raise and 10% bonus. Across the board raises for management at 10%. We brought back our laid off employees and are hiring. Labor recieved a 6% raise which I was happy to sign off. I myself need to hire a new controller and clerk. So basically I can tell everybody their hard work was for naught and we should pack it in and go home. I am sorry but I cannot embrace your nihilism. Stock up the canned goods and shotguns if you must but I have work to do.
