Watching TV tonight, being bombarded with the usual commercials for drugs for everything from scaled skin repair to getting and keeping a boner, I became really annoyed with the advertisements for new car purchases which cost as low as one hundred twenty five dollars per month. Really? And financed for the next fifteen years too.
Well, you won’t get much of a car for that price, but regardless, even this offer requires a buyer to have no less than stellar credit. Consider that you are also sized up for a potential job according to your credit score in this country. Great. So then, if you have bad credit like me, you are potentially denied the job which will possibly help you rebuild your credit score. Does this sound like a rigged poker game to you too?
American society seems purposefully constructed to beat down, and keep down, the average Joe and Jane. An old Steely Dan song says they got it made for the winners in the world. That isn’t to say that you and I are not winners. I am referring to the people who operate in the shadows and pull the strings that matter. Those truly in charge. Yet we are forced to pay taxes to a government that uses our money for evil deeds.
My credit score does not define me as a human being. My value as a human being is with God. Your true value is not in how much money you have or your credit score. Some have said for many years that television is just one of many tools used by the devil. Is it true? Are we all brainwashed?
Perhaps I am just getting old and cranky. A service guy at the house the other day thought I was ten years older than I am. Thanks. But change and I don’t flow well together these days. And good luck collecting that debt when I’m six foot under. No, no death wish here. Just a rant from an old grouch…
Update – I should have done my homework on employers checking your credit score. This does happen but it’s not the same as the credit score you normally think of. Apologies. Please click this link.
