Obama=Benedict Arnold. Obama will betray America. He is already talking about closing Gitmo. In the years to come, Americans will have to make one of two choices: fight to the death for America or burn your flag along with your loyalty.

No matter what the reason, it's always sad to hear about people contemplating suicide.

However, maybe this economic downturn will convince Americans to SAVE MORE and SPEND LESS. I cannot believe more of us weren't prepared for this.

My rules:

1. No credit cards, ever!
2. Keep my overhead low
3. Anytime a new expense is created a luxury has to go (ie I have a 2 year old. I wend back to work last year. Babysitting expenses kicked in. Cellphones had to go.) I did not like it but it had to be done and you know what.....I lived!!!!

You are to be commended for your actions. This is what many of us must do in order to continue to at least be comfortable.
There are, however a lot of americans who are a little more hard pressed than us middle-classers. These people are already living the austere life. For them there are no luxuries to cut back on. These unfortunates are faced with cutting back on necessities. Any kind of slip, any further downturn, work cutback, any blip in their lives and they may find themselves among the homeless and destitute. Once a citizen finds himself among the homeless, he may be lost for good.
