The bigger problem is that there isn’t ENOUGH anger. People in this country should be as outraged at what has taken place as people around the globe have been, but we don’t pay attention here. Most people in the civilized world fear the USA a lot more than Bin Laden. As good Americans, we like to believe that we live in the best country on earth so it’s hard to see the coup that’s taken place for what it is.
We now live in a country that’s governed by corporate and banking interests from around the globe and it makes little difference if we vote for either party. The most I hope for when I vote is gridlock.
I can’t speak for other companies, but we remove people immediately in my company. Sure, we use mailing lists to solicit subscriptions, but without subscribers, we wouldn’t be in business. We do not target all of America, just those who might possibly be interested in our publications.
If not, they let us know, and we quit mailing to them. Also, we NEVER do cold calling of people (thank goodness, I’ve done that and I hated it); we only talk to subscribers whose subscriptions are up for renewal.
I, personally, would rather get a piece of mail that I can throw away, than get somebody on the phone trying to sell me something I don’t need or want.
By the way, we have thousands of subscribers, so “NO ONE” doesn’t apply here.
And as long as you quoting (sort of) the Bible, what about, “In every thing give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
I have a great job, one that I enjoy and one that I’m thankful for. I make no apologies for it. I got it through a temporary/staffing agency. I was hired on a trial basis for 90 days and they liked my work and my attitude well enough to keep me. I don’t plan on being in this job forever, for the time being, I’m very happy with it.
My problem in the last few days is that there HAS NOT been any information about getting out of debt or dealing with the vile debt collectors.
Being underemployed and have someone come on this list to say, “I have a good paying job but I’m still in debt” or “I have a good paying job and I’ve gotten out of debt” is useless to me. If I had a good paying job, the problem would be solved and I’d be gone.
So let’s make a deal, I’ll stop complaining about the woes of the world if people stop sending trite remarks as I’ve indicated above.
I think it’s great that people are getting out of debt. So what how much they make. They are making steps like we all are. Once i pay off my debt you bet i’ll come on here and let the whole world know 🙂 Here is the article – http://www.sptimes.com/2006/07/08/Opinion/Stop_abusive_debt_col.shtml
