what is weird is that money is spent on "studies" to figure out something that is oh so obvious to the rest of us

a big source of stress for me is that my paycheck has shrunk to less than half of what I was making 3 years ago and as a result credit cards that I planned on paying off within 5 months I have been able to only put a dent on the balances, people are having a hard time so what do the banks do? make it harder on people, every last one of my credit cards, (except Discover, thank you for that Discover) have more than doubled their interest charges and in one case ( F--k you Capital One) they tripled them even though I have never missed or been late with a payment.
And yes, the thought of just saying to hell with it and offing myself has crossed my mind but there's no way I could do that to my family

I truly wish it were that easy.

The economy isn't just causing suicides. Just pick up the paper or, God forbid, read HufPo. There appears to be a huge increase in violent crimes of all types: people shooting up large gatherings, mothers killing their children, men killing their families. People can jump off bridges or in front of cars, shoot themselves, or whatever but what is prompting people to kill their families first?

Presidents don't have any real power. They're just puppets. You want to fix something, fix Congress.

Many people also live beyond their means and in my own community, I see those that are deep in debt, and it is debt they chose to take on. I also have seen those that complain about their debt, but when the weekend comes, they are out partying and again, instead of cutting back, they just keep on spending money that would best be put to bills. These people then want others to bail them out and the people they want to help bail them out, have their own bills, and know how to live within their means. Many of the younger generation also believe that they ae entitled, and don't want to work and take on their own responsibilitys. America has been living far beyond it's means for generations and we kept kicking the can down the road, and now that can can't be kicked down the road, the bills are due.

I took on some debt but at the time I was making great money and thought I'd be able to pay off within a few months, 4 - 6 but then in 2009 it came crashing down, now I don't have the money for the little perks, just enough to keep the wolves from the door and man, it's hard to maintain a positive outlook when I see the unfair interest rates that bank are charging, don't get me wrong, I realize that banks are a business in business to make money but damn! how do they justify doubling or trippling interest rates on someone that has never missed or been late on a payment?
But a lot of people are taking our government's approach to debt, spend more, a LOT more, weird huh?

What a demoralizing, disgraceful **** hole we all live in and are made to suffer in. Those at the very top who destroyed this place are not suffering one bit nor are they being made to pay for what they did to us. But, on the other hand, the people who had nothing to do with destroying the economy (regular Americans) and everyone's lives are paying dearly for this and not a soul seems to give a ****. No slack, no understanding or economic accommodation made, nothing but constant harassment, berating, punishments, incarcerations, fines, fees and shut offs--all because people no longer have the money to fulfill their obligations. I cannot fathom how rotten our country is. The government has done nothing to help all the newly dislocated and destroyed people. They've simply paid banks off and then still allowed them to get paid twice on their government paid off loans by throwing Americans in the streets and selling off their homes. What a total **** hole this place is. Rotten. I can completely understand why someone would contemplate killing themselves. I certainly have. This place is a ******* hell hole and it should be ******* destroyed.

People aren't as grateful as they used to be. The very fact that we are alive is a miracle. I see men coming home from the war without limbs and they smile run and play with their artificial limbs and have more guts than anybody. Sure the economy is in the toilet but what the heck it's been bad before. Just wait tell after we get a new president and we get rid of Pelosi Reid Holder and the rest of those who are trying to destroy America things will markedly improve...
