How many Americans with high interest rate credit cards will be willing to stop paying on their card
Looks like a lot will as the CC companies up the screwing ante. Look up "Ann Minch" and debtorsrevoltnow.com
She has gotten a lot of publicity recently -- radio and TV interviews, and YouTube videos.
I think the best way to 'make 'em hurt' is to pay down your cards as fast as possible and close every account. Authors like Dave Ramsey and David Bach have written extensively on how to live a normal and good life without ever using credit cards or needing car loans. Then they can try charging someone else their usurious interest and fees.

Like a gun doesn't kill people just because someone can put a bullet in it and pull the trigger, a credit card doesn't just rack up charges the consumer can't pay for because it happens to be in their wallet.
Who's fault is it that the credit card company has the upper hand? Who put the consumer in a position to have to answer to a creditor?

Why do so many Americans hate America? And if they hate it so much why don't they just leave?One thing that really bothers me is the way some Americans seem to hate everything about America. I'd just like to ask them: "If you hate everything about the country you live in then why are you...
