    I can't imagine making 60K. I would have so many things paid off...

    They're the SUCKAS living the "American Dream." Too bad the American Economy actually depends on and therefore encourages living and spending beyond your means. "It keeps the economy goin' y'all!" As usual, I blame Bush.

    ^I blame Greenspan too. He kept those interest rates too low for years.

    I blame the people who were so hell bent on having houses and cars to impress others and took on mortgages they could not afford and lived on credit cards. And well, I blame Bush too since I need to blame him for everything

    Me neither. I could afford a vacation every other month with that kind of dough.

    Don't forget that the credit industry allowed them to get the credit and money to buy those things. It used to be that if you couldn't afford credit, you weren't given any.
