America In Debt – Broken Down Per Person
Happy Friday fellow Debt Wranglers. As the week has gone by, I have been becoming more and more frustrated with what is going on around me. I have been trying to figure out how to create a better life for myself and my family, but notice that many others are just digging back into their old and crappy habits. I mean, what the hell has to happen before people actually make a change? Really, people?
My blogging buddy, John, from Frugal Rules put together a nice piece on Wednesday describing the definition of insanity. He was ranting about how crazy it is when we all took heed when the economy fell into the toilet, but as we start to move toward the light of recovery, people start spending money they don’t have. He mentioned my post with another interesting infographic regarding our falling savings rate. What is wrong with everyone? Why do we not learn from our mistakes? I am asking questions because I just don’t get it. When did common sense fall apart and now we rely on companies to dictate how we live our lives? Can someone explain it to me?
To go on point with the crazy debt that America has, I decided to post an infographic that breaks down America’s debt. I puts in the perspective of how much the average American has. It is quite eye opening. The funny thing is that the infographic was created by a loan company. Don’t even get me started on how backwards that is, but I liked the infographic. I can’t explain why a loan company, who thrives on people not being able to pay for things, would create an information product about Debt. Can anyone explain this one to me as well?
I apologize for the questions today. I am slowly losing patience for our society. I used to be a part of the bad spending club, but at least I learned from my mistake. I don’t want to be a part of these statistics anymore. I want to be free from the cold embrace of debt. Who’s with me?
