Your Choice

August 20th, 2014 By Bob Rinear

We know the economy is fake, we know our debts too large and we know that some day, one day… the wheels will come off. So what are your choices?

            We’re all familiar with the so-called reality TV shows, which really push the envelope of believability. But the one reality show that never gets mentioned is the reality of just where the US population is when it comes to their financial position.



            On Monday morning one of the first things CNBC was discussing at the 7 am time slot was that a recent poll showed that in the US, 36% of the population had absolutely NO savings for retirement. None. Not a 401K, not a savings account, or even a handful of bonds they got as kids for their birthday.

            One might suggest that those 36% are part of the 77 million that are in some form of credit collection situation. But it isn’t just the dismal savings rate that is a problem for us and you all know that. The problems run deep and wide, and they’re covering them over with paper. Literally folks. They’re printing up paper to jam into stocks, to hide the disgusting reality of the average American’s situation.
