Coming Up For Air
Article from the CS Monitor about doing something different this Black Friday, nothing, at least buying nothing. Americans are drowning in debt, we collectively owe $800 billion in credit card debt, 1/3 of households have over $10,000 in credit card debt1, health care costs are soaring, job insecurity is a major concern, the hosing market isn't looking too hot, etc etc, essentially we have less and less money and more and money worries, so maybe this isn't the best time to go out and buy electronics, we should save our money, for ourselves, for our children, pay bills, pay debt, put it away, anything is better then throwing it away on plasma TVs or PS3's, we don't need this stuff, and whats more we cant afford it, don't get bilked this year.
