– A high income job
– Bonus + benefits
– I’ve eliminated unnecessary expenses
– I rarely go out
– My friends and I cook and share meals
– I supplement my income from swing trading
– I make royalties from one of my own products annually
– I have no dependents
– I don’t even date

I am the machine you loath and mistakenly blame for all of your financial problems. I am he that continues to collect your money when you’re distracted and busy blaming someone or something for the world’s problems. Your irresponsibility is my profit and my gain. While you gorge on food, drink and entertainment, I am scooping up your opportunities and keeping them for myself.

These Western lifestyle habits will never change and thus my financial security is practically guaranteed.

We don’t do loans which “feed the beast”. We get only what we need and buy only quality stuff, fix things when they break, buy local, don’t trust State or Federal government and it’s mainstream spokespeople. We aren’t going to change for Bernanke/BushObama/Goldman Sachs/US congress and Company. We save money, live and eat simply and well, don’t watch TV, and all that unpatriotic stuff. Debt-free too. We love barter, taking care of our neighborhoods, and growing our own food. I guess we’re just lousy Americans. There are thousands of we lousy Americans and more every day.We know a hustle when we see it, and the US government, the Federal Reserve, The US senate and house, State legislatures, and big banks have been hustling the people for years, and they just don’t dare change their ways now. They have a tiger by the tail and can’t let go. When a critical mass of the American people wake up, which they are slowly doing, it’ll be something to behold. Whee-hah !!

What a stupid statement. How can you blame someone else for your own greed and ignorance? At least down here in our “3rd world” country our economic policy makers had enough foresight to see this coming. We had acts and legislature put in place more than 2 years ago to prevent ordinary people from becoming over-indebted.

Yet, truth is… looking at China, western companies have moved to here and have taught Chinese to produce and sell all that is asked for. USA has taught the world to buy and buy… on credit. The hidden side of the coin, people in this world learn fast, taking over. It is like the wealth built over generations in west is given away. West is too expensive, people not willing to work so much, then… what will west produce and have in the end???

Sounds about in the world we inhabit today…

If you have a mortgage you can sustain,pay it on time, checked facts and never carried an huge debt burden … if you’ve always invested in energy-efficient cars, appliancesand insulated your home … if you haven’t striven to get as muchas you can in the short-term, tried to save so your kids could havea better life, tried to make sure they’re educated instead ofsimply trained, can think instead of sit like idiots in front ofsome passive entertainment … in short, if you have tried to bea responsible, civilized human being, then …You lose, bucko. The government has to save all of the self-indulgentmorons, the greedy bankers, the corrupt management, unions,and the short-sighted “investors” from feeling any pain fortheir actions. The government has to save them all with theonly actual source of *real* revenue it has: you, and your kids,and your kid’s kids to the nth will end up as slaves to pay offthe debt incurred by the federal government and the self-centeredtwits that kept voting them in.So much for America.
