Why I love credit cards and debt in general....

1. High interest credit cards model our national economic policy as set by the president. Max out one and apply for another....
2. Debt is a good thing...the more you borrow the better off you are according to our president...who is always correct. Just look at the effect borrowing and spending has had on our economy. Wonderful!!!
3. Spending ...not saving or budgeting ...is the only way for financial success...again following our national model as set forth by our majority political party. Every family should spend more. Christmas is coming and time to apply for more credit cards.
4. Being financially free is a bad thing...only Tea Party folks believe that crap.
5. Remember the words of Barack when he spoke of our then 9 trillion dollar debt in 2007 "taking out a credit card from the bank of china ....is un-American and unpatriotic". Obviously it is much more patriotic to have a 17 trillion debt!!

Yes Credit debt is what makes the world go round!!! Just ask Greece!!!!

I love my credit card. I have only one that I charge thousands of dollars on and I get lots of miles from my airline so that I can fly for free. I pay it off monthly so I never pay interest so their money is free. I get free extended warranties for major purchases. Once a year I receive a companion fly free ticket saving me hundreds of dollars making the annual cost inconsequential. And finally the annual breakdown is good for my accounting. Used wisely a credit card is a must.
