Well I got just got back from my morning chores and errands. One of them involved hitting the bank - during the great Covid Terror, Justin Turdo and his compassionate gubbimint gave away free Turdo Bucks to help those being financially ruined by their fake plague. I lost my crappy retireMINT job and basically have been taking time off ever since. I took Turdo's money and threw it in the bank and forgot about it.
Aaaaaand of course, now that the mighty Canadian Nation is one step away from war with Russia - Turdo is racking up the credit cards again! And the coffers are pretty much empty except for the IOU notes left by liberal financial fuckery.
I'm sure it's just a total coincidink that I got a note in the mail that said basically - "We gave you too much money during the Covid
Scam Pandemic - and now we want it back! Give us $1000.00 or else...", Whatever - I just went down to the bank, and the chink teller debited my account and credited theirs in minutes. Done like dinner. Behind him, the gay pride flags were everywhere up on the LCD screen to remind everyone the CIBC was gay too. Whatever.... I just wonder how much money it cost me to take the money and give it back? This is the way of things with socialist gov'ts I suppose... and it is only going to get worse for us as time goes on and Turdo isn't removed.
Thankfully we tried to be smart with our money and banked the way we did - or this would have been a crippling financial hit. When we were kids just starting out... it would have meant a couple months of financial hardship. Thank goodness for grandmas - mine taught us everything we needed to know about handling money. She grew up during the depression and could make a buck stretch enough to make it squeal, HAR HAR HAR!!! When I got my first real job, my friend and mentor, Lesiure Suit Larry - insisted that I set up a savings plan. I knew good advice when I heard it and made it so.
Most of us take common sense money management for granted but for kids and certain individuals... sound financials are a foreign concept and the principles may not be intuitively obvious.
I love these two. They maintain that you (yes, YOU) can eliminate all your debts (yes, including your mortgage) - in 7 years. They are living proof that it can be done. When America's economy crashed in about '08 - these two lost EVERYTHING. Businesses, rental properties, jobs, and the lady had horrible health problems. I have watched them recover since... and it is an eye opener. Their motto is 'Live simple, live free' and by the grace of God - they are doing so. They didn't suffer, they were always thankful, and worked to be cheerful and upbeat.
If you have young adults that are struggling - these two can set them straight and on a path toward recovery, freedom and simplicity.
As I was rudely reminded today - the best one to rely on in times of trouble is YOU. If you leave it up to the gov't... you will be at their tender mercy ... and you will deserve it!
Have a great Humpday, you guys! I gotta go... my lawn is menacing me and rain is inbound.
