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?

About Me “Be Not Simply Good...Be Good For Something”

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.

Wild Fact About Me I was pregnant for over 4 years! I think every person need 2 legal vices--mine are coffee and swearing. Coffee is interchangable with Vodka right?
My Philosophy
What Gives Me Hope My husband will be out of the Army soon, and then I can really let my hair down.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Change the lending laws, have guidlines for alternative transportation, take better care of our elderly. Stomp out the selfish money grabbers.
What/who changed my life and why Having children, watching my husband go off to war 3 almost killed me.
Quotation 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.
