    That's a real money-saver. I have not had a car payment in nine years, and when I do buy a new one it will be for cash. My husband paid his off four years ago, and he'll buy his new one for cash. As long as we don't have to buy them both at the same time, we're all set! :)

    The last time I paid rent on an apartment it was $615/month. In 1986.

    In all fairness, the house belonged to my grandmother for 40 years before I bought it.

    My house is paid for along with my car. It is great to be debt free. I was thinking about buying a Corvette several months ago and financing about 1/3 of the cost. Glad I did not with the downturn in the stock market. Today my stocks are up around 6%; got a ways to go though.

    Good ‘gut check’, old man. If those stocks are well diversified - you’ll be fine. Now that the American taxpayer gets to cover all that bad real estate paper.

    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    You are an idiot.
