Yeah. I own what I have. I bought on credit, sure. I paid it back at the end of the month too, with the exception of my mortgage. It made sense to mortgage my home and I paid that sob every 2 wks. I paid all my bills and if that meant going hungry and not making it to Disneyland, that's the way it was. Not like today where everyone demands respect and a piece of the pie without paying dues. The whole bailout applies.
Actually it's the American lifestyle. We should not be lowering ourselves to theirs but be the world leaders and the envy of the world. The heck with the rest of the world. They should be striving to achieve our lifestyle not us theirs.
