I wonder why we don't teach financial responsability in school? Education that prepares young people for the reality of life. What a concept

Sounds like a good idea, have to wait and see if it works. Maybe that judge should lobby for better laws when divorce rolls around. There are a lot of states that have high bankruptcy rate due to divorce.

This is the first time I had ever applied for a loan. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the staff that answered any of my questions to the application process. Once this had all been completed the money was transferred quickly into my account. I will definitely be recommending 911PDAY .COM ( http://goo.gl/44kQUQ ) too my friends and family.

This judge is right!

The banks years ago pulled this stuff from our schools so they could prey on our children.

We need to return to teaching kids the importance of putting off a purchase until they have the cash, VS. borrowing money and then paying twice as much for it because of the added interest.

This judge should talk to our state politicians too.
They are currently working on the state budget! Welfare, and many other union driven adgendas need to be reduced ... or the state will have to borrow the money to pay for it, and we, the taxpayers will be on the hook to pay the loan with interest!
