If you are knowledgable, clean and decent an asset and considered by peers to be a good worker in your field, you will be sought after and employment or money will not be a problem, as long as you live a practical lifestyle. There are plenty of jobs out there ... just take the time to become qualified, experienced, learn how to fit in and get along with others. I have seen some real idiots with decent jobs ... they really are not that hard to obtain...just sayin.... as for the topic at hand, take some responsibility, pay people back what you owe and live within your means .. not real complicated.

Why not give each member of Congress, AND,  lets not forget our President---  a copy of this? As Attorneys and Millionaires (for the most part), they all could use a refresher course. All 535 of the thieves.

I have worked hard all my life and I make a good living I wanted to expand my business by two stores this year. Uncertainty is a killer for small business there are 60 people that wont be employed this next year and 30 that are very nervous. Obama is the most dangerous president in history. I'm just saying the way it is.

why would you print this article?  Most everyone in America supports  a government that disregards debt and money accountability?  You think they run their own lives differently?

 

Here's an idea America..........quit being stupid!

Need a job first--there are a lot of workers let go between the ages of 52-62 and can't find work-
people that rises families and were never never unemployed --people that took car of aging parents without gov't assistance and now they find themselves without income, debt they want to pay off and can't and in many cases without hope.
Too many people, jobs overseas, and no jobs for them because the 20+ with the degree takes the prize--

It is this simple. "Stop spending more than you make, save for your retirement, and pay off those you owe". The End!

Brilliant!  Never would of though of any of these on my own.  The best one would probably be:  If you're in the hole with debt, stop digging!
