I think I'll get my 17 year old son a FEW charge cards for his birthday, and then give him a list of things I need and want. EXCELLENT!! -- Kill two birds....
I have been getting more and more nervous by the day as he approaches his 18th birthday.
Here is the article
Thousands of U.S. troops are being barred from overseas duty because they are so deep in debt they are considered security risks. "We are seeing an alarming trend in degrading financial health." The Pentagon contends financial problems can distract personnel from their duties or make them vulnerable to bribery and treason. As a result, those who fall heavily into debt can be stripped of the security clearances they need to go overseas.
While the number of revoked clearances has surged since the beginning of the Iraq war, military officials say there is no evidence that service members are deliberately running up debts to stay out of harm's way.
Can't the government, the powers that be or whomEVER, put a stop to ANYTHING, at any time, particularly out of control spending AND LENDING? ! What's going on?
What goes around, comes around maybe?
I have been doing a lot of reading lately regarding the Federal Reserve, the Federal Income Tax, and I have also been watching Aaron Russo's film Freedom to Fascism
In my opinion, the Federal Reserve is responsible for all that is "evil" on this earth today.
Here are two very informative reads:
All about bankers
John F Kennedy Vs. the Federal Reserve
What sad irony this is.......
