[Rushtalk] Absolutely!

Well, almost no money in savings institutions.  They don't pay enough interest to cover the gas to drive and withdraw it.  Life boat?  Probably isn't one.  If it collapses, it collapses.  Like I say, I refuse to live in fear.  It's pointless.

I am mortgage free.... but are the institutions that have my savings/investments are on the lending side of that risk.   Everybody on the ship has a problem when it sinks.    What is your lifeboat?   Tom

>$135K – wow.  Mortgage debt here is well over $400K.  Homes in our area are now passing the “affordable” point.  Affordable defined as payment is less than total net income.  On the other hand, the train wreck has been predicted for years.  I refuse to live in fear.  My wife and I are fortunate;  we are debt free.  It’s a good feeling, but I am not sure what it buys us.  We have a paid-for house, but we can’t spend it.  We live in a society of instant gratification, and that results in unpayable debt.  We have ads on radio and Tv that boast “don’t let the credit card companies trick you into thinking you have to pay it back.”  Same ads for the IRS.  People go into debt knowing the courts will get them out of it.  Believing they have a “right” to NOT pay what they have spent.  And bragging about it!  I’d like to see that nonsense stopped immediately.

My pre capita share of uncle sugar's $19T is "only" another $63K++, but my school district, city, county,sanitation authority, arena authority, etc.... all have debts that add many tens of thousands per person to the picture.

The most likely explanation is the a  Fed is buying our own short term debt that is coming due in unmanageable numbers.
