This is such a reality. And this topic really touches my heart cuz I have a few colleagues who have lost their jobs as a result of govt cuts...and they are mordified[sp] that they will NOT be abe to do the basics: pay mortgage, utilities, buy food....and then gas for their high profile cars. I mean it's hard for me to feel sorry for them[and I do feel for folks who are not in this particular situation but are suffering nonetheless as a result of not having a job]. The reason I can't feel...

Somebody....anybody.....Koco has said something that I can agree with . I knew there was something that I liked about you . When you are not dillusional with your Obama worship.....you actually make pretty good sense. I'm jus sayin... Once Obama leaves office you will probably be able to get your job back....because your mind should clear up.

Interesting. Just a couple of days ago, I received an email from 'Smiley & West' touting a new, upcoming "membership" program of their radio show ... where they are asking for $39.00/year or $3.99/month ... which would entitle the 'member' to be able to listen to additional discussion (not aired to the non-paying public), a mug, a T-shirt (I think) .... and a portion of the payment would go as a donation to a poverty organization called "Feeding America" ... whose mission it is to feed...

What a crock! In 1975 Sylvia Porter mentioned DEPRECIATION 5 times in the index of her MONEY BOOK and 4 of them were about depreciation of automobiles. In 2007 I checked FIVE of Suze Orman's books and not one of them mentioned depreciation. There have been 200,000,000+ cars in the US since 1995. At $1,500 lost in depreciation per car per year that is $300,000,000,000 every year. That is FOUR TRILLION DOLLARS since 1995! What has Suze Orman or the economics profession said about that? Now...

My take on Suzy Orman is that she really does know what she is talking about when it comes to finance, personal finance, etc., but, I just personally have a problem with her because of the fact that she is so damn rich by now, promoting all her books, etc., and her rounds on the talk show circuit, PBS, finance advice shows, etc., that it would SEEM that a woman who comes from the background she claims to come from (a struggling waitress), would have free information and/or tools on her...

Laziness and "living within your means" are two of the myths that have been repeatedly debunked yet continue to be a major part of commentary no matter where this subject comes up. The idea of living within your means is very attractive to those who stress the need for self responsibility and accountability. The problem is that social economic conditions are just that---social. When we are told to 'live within our means' what is almost always ignored is the declining value of "your means".
