Reflection From A Couple Of Weeks Ago

Probably one of the most surreal moments from my football trip a couple of weeks ago occurred at Bryant-Denny Stadium, home of the Alabama Crimson Tide. Twenty minutes before the game, the loud speakers actually fired up Lynard Skynard's "Sweet Home Alabama". It was a heck of an experience to hear 80,000 people sing "Well, I hope Neil Young will remember, a southern man don't need him around anyhow." I don't think there were many Democrats in the crowd.

Sounds wonderful to me!

Alabama is red, red, red! Right now all those singing the song don't know what is coming. We are a nation of debtors. Trade concessions to China, India, Japan, Saudia Arabia, Korea are keeping interest rates low. The countries are financing the credit cards for those at the football game. The football fans are so far in debt, they will never get out. And where are their jobs going?

What happens when the USA can no longer give trade concessions for low interest rate debt?

What happens when more jobs go offshore?

But for now, their only concerns are keeping gays from being married and over-turning Roe Vs. Wade...but some are getting concerned about too many immigrants coming over the borders!

As long as the credit cards keep the red states in beer, football tickets, NASCAR tickets you will not find many Democrata in the South!

And when the crash comes, they won't understand what happened!

anon 8:47 - you may be overly concerned about "exporting" jobs but at least you recognize the sorry financial state of many individuals and the US government. You also can articulate a serious subject - in contrast to poor Condi whose head is pure fluff.

Even though I am not Condi, I will take up for her in a corny lame way. If she is a fluff head, then you must be too. Because it takes one to know one. And the people of the Untied States wouldn't be in debt if they would get smart and not over charge their dang credit cards. I think the whole world is mest up because of newer technology like the credit card. If you just spent cash, you couldn't over spend becuase you would only have that much money on hand instead of having a few thousand dlloars on the credit card. Therefore making you over spend because you think you have a bunch of money in the account. So you keep spending and spending....mostly things that you don't need.

Yet if you are talking about the United States debt, that is a different story.

Yet how did this blog get turned into a debt issue?

"It takes one to know one" what a simplistic manner of discussion. Your logic (or sever lack of it) makes meaningful discourse impossible.

I think economics crept in when 7:41 indicated the narrow thinking and economically under-educated Red staters may have their life priorities misplaced.

Just about everything I buy I put on credit cards (GM or Discover), and then pay it off at the end of the month. This includes my light bill, phone bill, doctor bill, car insurance you name it. I bought a new truck last year and took $2500 off from what I made on my GM card and got a check from Discover at the end of the year. All in all I made $4,000 off of credit cards last year. I haven’t paid a penny in interest on credit cards in ten years. If I don't have the money I don't buy it.

Anon @ 12:04...if you're going to insult someone's intelligence...use spellcheck. Dictionary.com is a great tool as well. I'm an educated red-stater who thinks Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" rocks...every time. And life's more fun with credit cards.

7:41 It's nice to live in the moment every once in awhile. You assume that they don't know what's coming? Generalizing isn't nice! I think you have just been looking for an opportunity to get on your soap box, keep it up and someone might knock you off, maybe a football loving, nascar racing redneck, the way I see it YOU are outnumbered in these here parts of the country.

9:05 This is a liberal blog. So we can get on our soap box.

It may be nice to live in the moment, but since I'm NOT in debt I will probably survive very well when interest rates go up. It will be more money on my savings!

Congress passed new bankruptcy laws before interest rates go up on credit card debt.

At least China, Korea or Saudia Arabia is not funding my "in the moment" lifestyle choices.

Think about it!

6:54, I don't own a credit card & my rural home with acreage is paid for , so why do you assume, that I am in debt.I know a few people who are over extended but not as many as you would like to believe. Let it go...it's not your problem, or are you overextended? Is that the reason for the anger?

I love "Sweet Home Alabama" I also like "Gimme Three Steps."

I love music at games. Everyone is pumped and the crowd ROCKS.

Life is too short to be worried or angry or sad all the time.

I may be a a fluff head but at least I am not a miserable, mean spirited, bitter fluff head
