Our Readers Respond: Paying Debts
By Our Readers
Mar 3, 2008
You may want to check your facts and read the transcript of what John actually said and not twist it and add to it!!!
This article had me cracking up. Rather than giving me serious advice I’d been seeking on dealing with my increasing amount of bills and decreasing lack of funds I found instead something that helped almost just as much, but by lightening the matter and giving me a reason to stop stressing for 2.5 seconds while I read the article (okay so maybe it took me a little longer to read than that) And unfortunately I can understand the authors frustrations over his seemingly impending divorce. “Want to finalize that divorce, Katya? Too bad – your husband doesn’t exist anymore!” hehehe. Ah, too bad I can’t torture my recent ex-husband like that. Sigh. Well anyhow, keep it going, it’s good.
Kristina, In debt but chuckling.
They are robots. Aren’t they? How else do they stand up in front of so many, promise the world, and barely deliver a pizza. Read my lips…”No new pepperoni.” What amazes me is the amount of people cheering fervently, seemingly hanging on each word when so much of it seems to be pure lip service. Instead of “give the people what they want”, we have “tell the people what we think they want to hear.” Occasionally, a well meaning family member, such as a Chelsea Clinton, strays from this approach. Regardless, I’d hazard a guess that a very small percentage of what is promised during campaigning is accomplished after election. I never listen except to try to hear how composed these people are under pressure. I like a little squirming. It makes candidates seem human. Anyone who is too slick (perhaps Mr. C.) is creepy. Lastly, Hillary doesn’t need her daughter to create negativity. She does it all on her own.
