Mother of 5 on a Mission: I want to save the teetering economy from the gluttonous mortgage companies, credit-card companies, loan officers, auto financers, Tax refund lenders, and the “not for profit” get-out-of-debt industry. People need to live within their means a take responsibility for their debt, but there is a seductive heavily funded industry out there taking advantage of the poor and middle-class’s American Dream. It use to be only the poor that got taken advantage of, and humanity didn’t care, but now there’s the new poor middle-class. They are heavily in debt, and using the equity in their houses to take vacations, finance cars...banks never use to allow such things now they promote it. I know there will always be fringe economy, but we are the ones who sign on the line and make the gluttonous mortgage companies, credit-card companies, loan officers, auto financers, Tax refund lenders, and the “not for profit” get-out-of-debt industry richer and richer while we get poorer and poorer—hey but that new 54” HDTV was worth it right?
is my motto, I found it on a card. It is easy to be good, it means doing the minimum of what is expected of you in society. I don’t spit in public, swear where it will offend others, steal, cheat, lie, start fights...much. However that’s not good enough for me, I need to do more I expect more of myself.
It is a quote I heard from Erma Bombeck , but I am not sure how it goes. Something about when she is done with this life and is standing before God, and he/she asks her if she used up everthing that was given to her, she could say "yes I used it all there is nothing left." I take it to mean I should not hide my love, caring, compassion, creativity, honesty anything I have inside of me I need to use, but maybe hide sometimes. I wish I could find the exact quote I heard it at the end of a PBS special on her.
