I listen to this guy sometimes to get me thru work. unfortunately there is not much else on. Ramsey repeats the same cr%p, regurgitates the same talking points and stories and he laughs at his own joke. When I heard the nutjob say that having a conversation with Jesus was his greatest moment in life, I knew I was listening to a freaking religious nut case or a fraud to bring in the evangelical . This guy can not be too bright to believe in external influences. My guess is that he does not. I think his religion cr&p is a front, because he gets his business from churches. Hes the 'financial' version of Ted Haggard or Pat Robertson. Religion is a card he plays to bring in the gullible WIZARD IN THE SKY believers.

Well if he is so stupid, then do the opposite of what he says and report back to us on your findings.

At $38.00 a ticket Dave should able to invest well.

Did you ever look at the cost of renting the Van? I looked into it a couple years ago for a fund raising concert.
Pages of union demands...It's all on line and unless you are a big name and sell out the entire arena good luck breaking even.$38.00 doesn't seem all that expensive... considering....

The rich man goes to the dance while the poor (poor in Spirit (stupid) that is) man pays the band. To follow him is a denial of Christ. If you are stupid enough to give this heritic $38, you deserve to be broke. Same old stuff, new package, different color. The churches that are inviting him will suffer in the long run. These "so-called Christians" claim to know Jesus and they wouldn't recognize him if he were standing there talking with them face to face. They have focused on debt, on money on Dave and foregone the Spirit. They just want "a king" to tell them what to do. Dave is pointing out the corruption in those church buildings. He never should be allowed to bring his business into one. They can do that s%&t outside of the church.

Anyone that professes that god helped make decisions for them is a nutjob. Like when a hurricane hits . I am sure that many say it did not hit them because of god. What about those that did all the praying crap and the hurricane hit them anyway and maybe killed their child or whatever. It is all a bunch of crap. The prayer freaks always make excuses . If prayer comes to a favorable thing happening they say it was the prayer that god heard; It it does not , their gods ego is spared and they say IT WASN'T MEANT TO BE . Your god has it both ways. It must be nice lmao.

He makes money and has all these followers, when all his plan consists of is just plain old common sense. Are we all that stupid that we need to be told to not spend more than you make?
I realize how old this post is, and I doubt its author is here to read this but, I can't help but wonder what this same person thinks of their statement today. OF COURSE WE'RE TOO STUPID to not spend more than we make. An entire generation was force-fed the "You deserve everything you've ever dreamed of. Just go buy it and worry about paying for it later; or, don't worry about paying for it at all" propaganda... And they bought every second of it....

3 years after the thread died one person sparked it back up, and here you are still; sounding even more bitter and unfulfilled. Perhaps some sound financial decisions, and a bit of faith-inspired perspective would've been a good decision for you back then... Lol

I have no debt, paid house and plenty of jack in the bank. Not bitter , just honest. Dave goes around talking about being like NO ONE ELSE, yet is just like every other sheep and believes in invisible men in the sky. Sorry, a logical thinking person like myself does not buy that crap. Religious people think their religion is right and everyone elses is wrong. It is an insult to my intelligence. THis Dave Ramsey laughs at his on jokes on the radio. He sounds like he should be put in an insane asylum.

Dave Ramsey is a buffoon. Keen sense of the obvious. His program appeals to complete idiots. He's always warning against other people's scams and then turns around and promotes his own. If you listen to his program, listen carefully to the commercials in between his segments - he's always hawking various products and scams from companies that pay him to endorse their thievery. The guy is a total charlatan, and the worst thing is that he perpetrates his scams by exploiting people's Christianity in order to make a profit for himself. Jesus warned against the "money-changers in the temple," and Dave Ramsey is one of the worst. Professional scam artist.

people like you make me laugh.... you stand in such firm defense of the fact that you do not believe in a higher power at all, yet you clearly get bent out of shape at the thought that others might...

do you get this angry when you hear children talking about Santa Claus? I would say that I highly doubt it, but given the tone of your various post;, I bet you do.

if you are that convinced that God is not real, you should probably just get a nice little laugh out of all of us idiots that do ... But, no, you get angry. that tells me that you are not a real atheist at all.

You're a joke, and somewhere DEEP inside you know the truth in that which you try to convince the world you don't believe in. Your intelligence is insulted? Lol. the truth is that you probably do believe in some higher power; you're just mad that your life is empty, so you respond in anger....

and that anger multiplies when you consider the fact that you will probably face eternity in pain and anguish.

" the greatest obstacle to enlightenment is not ignorance but, rather, the illusion of knowledge."

keep telling yourself you are an atheist, you might eventually convince yourself that you really believe it. oh, and tell a soul again how wonderful your life sans spirituality is.... the bitter and hollow tone in your post CLEARLY proves otherwise.

why don't you take a moment to read your own post; then tell again how intelligent you are... when you can piece together a few sentences that don't bastardize our rules of grammar and syntax, then come back here and tell if how much mortar you are then the rest of us "sheep."

when the most basic constructs of our language are beyond you, you make it very difficult to believe that you are capable of such "enlightened" metaphysical, logical thought.

you are mad because you are a joke and you are fully aware that you are nowhere near as important, successful, or brilliant as you have deluded yourself into believing; and THAT is what you're so angry about, isn't it a little guy?

LMAO LMAO LMAO
Your god is so insecure that if I do everything right I go to hell ? What a joke. All sheep think there god is the right one. SOrry I am an intelligent person . Religion is a big scam based on fear that is created by elitists to control masses. Who the hell is anyone else to tell me I have no morals because I do not believe in their god. Religion is what is wrong with the world. It is hatred and division and greed. OH what about those clergymen that molest boys and the religion buries it. Sorry , religion is a joke . I am glad I do not waste my time or money on that crap. I still believe that Ramsey uses religion to get the uneducated redneck base. At least I do not laugh at my own jokes. Between his religious crap and the laughing at own jokes , the man sounds like he he belongs in an insane asylum. By the way, WORRY ABOUT YOUR OWN AFTERLIFE. Other then a marriage proposal , I will never degrade myself by kneeling to anything. I am glad it pisses you off I do not believe in your god. Just like it pisses off every other religion. They are all a joke and create the most hatred.

You're the one to talk. You do not even start sentences with capital letter's. That is 1ST Grade English
