Credit Card Debt

How do I pay off my debt?

Credit Card Debt“How do I pay off all this debt?” “How the hell did I get here?” These questions have been asked since the dawn of time, since the first time one man lent another man money. It seems like a simple enough thing for us to wrap our heads around – if you have a debt, you pay it off. Simple, right? Yes, but that doesn’t mean that it is easy. If it were easy, there wouldn’t be so many people still in debt. Let me tell you a story.

Phil’s fight with debt

Years ago, there was a guy I knew named Phil. When he was nineteen, Phil worked in a furniture warehouse making OK money and doing fairly well for himself. He received a pre-approved credit card application in the mail one day. He didn’t really think anything of it. He just threw it away with all the other junk mail he got. Soon Phil started getting more and more of these applications. They were

Where do you want to go?

Where are you? Where do you want to go? And how the heck do you get there?

Today I wanted to help you get an assessment of your current situation. Whether good or bad. And also where you want to go, where you want to be. It doesn’t matter how good you are with direction, how disciplined you are, your perseverance, whatever. If you don’t know where you are, you will never get to where you want to be.

The ship

Clipper Sailing ShipThis reminds me of an analogy I heard on The Survival Podcast by Jack Spirko. I’ll add my own details, but you’ll get the point. So before a ship even leaves its port, the ship’s captain plots a course for its destination port. To do that, the captain must know where he is currently. And for the purpose of this analogy, the ship does not have any GPS navigation equipment.   Back to the story. The captain knows that if he is in Norfolk, Virginia and he wants to go to the port in Dover, England, he must plot a northeast course across the Atlantic and go through the English Canal before arriving in Dover. He only knows that because he knows where he is to begin with. If he were actually leaving a port in Argentina, but thought he was leaving Norfolk, he would plot that same course. He thinks he’s in Norfolk. Except this time, he would really be confused

The Debt System – Personal Debt II

Personal Debt

In my last post I started into the personal debt side of the debt system.   If you did not read that post, you may want to go back and read that here. I started into it, but I got a little sidetracked going into my own failings. That’s fine because I also want you to know where I’m coming from. So now I’d like to actually get into the meat of the matter.

The debt system is a system of control. It is set up to keep as many people under control as possible. Under who’s control? Many have their hands in this system – the government, the banks, the education system, corporations and of course, the credit card companies.   Name an entity that deals with money on a grander scale than you and I and you can bet they have a hand in there somewhere.

Credit Card Debt

First up, the credit card companies

The credit card companies have done more damage to the American Family than Planned Parenthood or the welfare system ever could ever dream. And yes, the welfare system IS destructive to the family unit, but we’ll get into that later. One of the leading causes for divorce in

The Debt System – Personal Debt

Personal Debt

So I thought I would start with the debt system. There are really two debt systems, personal debt, which we will be talking about here, and then there is national debt which kind of falls under the Financial and Banking System. We’ll being exploring that in the near future. Personal debt is everything like unsecured credit card debt on up to student loans and home mortgages. This may be one of the most insidious of all the systems of control.

Get ’em when they’re young!

The moment that many of our children reach the age of eighteen, credit card companies begin sending out pre-approved credit card applications to them   All they need to do is fill out a tiny bit of information about themselves and they, too, can get one these nice shiny pieces of plastic. It’s as simple as that.   Unless they have someone that has taught the dangers and ramifications of this, many of them will sign the dotted line. Especially in this “I want it now”
