Lets face facts here. ( your name is making me hungry ) Star for you!
Ok back to point:
We need a reset. BUT: Not from the gov't.
WE the People, need to stop listening to TV and buying things we don't need.
Your post is spot-on. Houses, cars, clothes, etc.
All to keep up with the latest fad. Set by TV!
So who's the culprit? People, or Media?
Personally, I blame both. But mostly people, because if they would just stop going INTO debt, there wouldn't be this mess. If they would be strong
and turn down fancy luxuries when they can't afford them!
BUT: Then again, I blame corporations too!
The people didn't create "credit" or "credit cards", banks did!
So it all boils down to this. Banks own the nation, and they own us. They tell us, "Yeah go ahead and get into debt to be happy, just borrow from us
and pay it back for the rest of your lives!".
"Then we own you."
Great system. Obviously it worked. WE are indebted forever now.
