    Default Obama would have saved Scarecrow from himself...

    Obama to take aim at credit card abuses

    Money quote:

    We need to do things to stop the marketing of credit in ways that addict people to it," Summers said in an interview on the NBC television talk show "Meet the Press."

    Summers, director of the White House National Economic Council, said the administration is concerned about practices that result in consumers being "deceived into paying extraordinarily high rates that they wouldn't have paid if they knew they were getting themselves into."
    Making the assumption there are a lot more folks like idiotboy who don't understand that carrying a balance is bad. Claiming others should take personal responsibility but accept none themselves.

    Yes, there are a lot of people with ADHD and they need help.

    But hey. Our government has been doing it for over 100 years, so it can't be that bad.

    Hey moonbat. I'm not the one who lived beyond his means and maxxed out his credit cards and then went BK. That's your buddy idiotboy.

    Since that is something he actually did it qualifies as reality and NOT a personal attack.

    I doubt your Bizarro World mindset can figure that out.

    Its all part of the ADHD.
    Symptoms:
    • Impulsiveness: acting before thinking of consequences, jumping from one activity to another, disorganization, tendency to interrupt other peoples' conversations.
    • Hyperactivity: restlessness, often characterized by an inability to sit still, fidgeting, squirminess, climbing on things, restless sleep.
    • Inattention: easily distracted, day-dreaming, not finishing work, difficulty listening.

    Here is some info for you as well Adult ADD / ADHD

    And not that is really any of your business, but it was actually diagnosed. At least now that I know the issue, I have managed to control somethings. Although I still struggle with the impulsiveness, but a lesser scale. At least when talking a take a moment to think before I speak.

    I am however flattered that you wold create a thread just about me. Thanks.

    For those who are too lazy or just plain incapable of earning sufficient money for themselves, the easiest way to avoid bankruptcy is to marry someone who's salary places them in the top 5% of income earners.

    I thought you would appreciate it since you've whined incessantly about how you were taken advantage of by those mean and awful credit card companies. How you believe others should take responsibility for their actions but how you ducked yours by going BK.

    No sweat, just trying to help.

    Hey SC, personally I think its time to end personal attacks like this. I realise there are some on here who couldn't carry on any kind of a discussion without name calling and insults, but it certainly does nothing for either side to add to any kind of intelligent or informative discussion. Why don't some of you grow up and put some valid points on the table?

    George, are you paying attention. Moonbat believes you're lazy and incapable of earning sufficient money for yourself.

    BL, I tried that. Moonbat and idiotboy blow them off as not relevant.

    Now I'm just playing with him. Sort of like my generation's version of Bocci.

    Good GOD!!! Are you serious!!! I'm busting a guy laughing at this. Once you have been proven to be wrong you resort to the name calling, it happens every time.

    You know as well as I do, and the Obama administration admits as well, that they are nothing but a bunch of crooks. It is you who constantly harps on the ills of Wall Street and the bankers and how they all need to be owned by the government.

    Unfortunately, the only people who get help from our government are the big corporations and the poor lazy welfare slobs. We need to take our HHS budget and cut it in half. That would be a good start to fixing things. We could follow that with sending the illegals home, and while we are at it, here illegally, no benies for you.

    I've never said they should be owned by the government. I've stated they should be regulated to prevent the mischief we've seen just about every ten years that require billions in bailout funds in order to avoid a collapse of those institutions that causes economic turmoil.

    Big difference.

    You see idiotboy, I don't believe millions should have to suffer the consequences (which they will) when a few exploit the system for their own gain.

    Call me crazy that way.

    Would that include funding for research to find the reason for ADHD and newer meds to control it?

    I think if you actually look at the whole situation that the USA is getting into, the country could well be bankrupt technically in a few years. I am irrevocably against borrowing money from your children and grandchildren to pay for the parents stupidity. Sort of like using your kids college fund to buy a new SUV

    Absolutely, that is why we have drug companies. They research new medications. Doctors do research and come up with new ways to treat diseases. They get their funding from the institution and private donations. It is part of the high cost of health care.

    I'm with you on that. Japan tried this approach in the 1990s and has crippled their economy. Germany did it in the 1920s and it failed there. The theory is that the German economy failed so miserably, followed by the inflation form stimulus spending that the people were unhappy and this gave Hitler the impetus he needed to gain power. We really need a historian in the white house to help our presidents understand history.

    Scared-I think Newt was a history professor at one time; I don't think he was very good though.

    Check with him (@ 576.574.3099)to see if he will help Obama.

    I can understand your fear. One of the groups targeted by the Third Reich was the mentally challenged. You should be very worried.
