Based on everything I've read, the United States of America will inevitably default on it's enormous financial obligations some day. Forgive us for being human, but Dave and I are really hoping that day isn't Monday. We have just under $13,000 in personal debt left after cars, student loans, and credit cards, and - all things being equal - I'd rather face the catastrophic economic downturn with no debt at all. But I guess we're better prepared than most.
All the same, I'd rather eek out another year . . .
I keep posting this trailer, but it is an excellent documentary. If they raise the debt ceiling again, all that will buy us is time. Use it wisely.
