Some believe we should keep our money in the bank & live with the problems we have and hope things will get better.
It seems that's the general consensus and it sounds like a smart idea & if we all pray real hard hopefully the government will bail us out of this trouble. But wait isn't the government the same people who help get us in this mess to begin with, and if they were so smart why are we in this mess in the first place.
These are the same people who looked the other way when all these banks & Wall Street giants made up their own rules and when they got caught they simply ask for more money & guess what they got it.
