If you are starting to slip in your journey, here is the cure!

April 6th, 2008 at 12:11 am

Just watch the documentary "Maxed Out"!

It is available for free online, and that is where I just finished watching it:

I had read the book last year, but the film was even more potent. If I had any doubts whatsoever that getting out of debt was the right thing to do (especially credit cards), then this definitely pulled me back to reality.

I twas a little heavy on the anti-republican, pro-democrat agenda there toward the end, but not so much to make me stop watching or doubt the underlying truths the film is exposing. It is a crying shame that people/corporations can not treat each other better as one human being to another.

    I watched it recently on a different site. DH and I got so involved in it, we stayed up until after midnight watching it!

    I'd love to find similar things online to watch. Oh heck, I just like to watch documentaries! Smile

    Many people do not know that in the history of corporations our forefathers(1700's) and the laws they made required that corporations be for the public good. If it was shown that they were not than they would be unincorporated. They believed in personal responsibility and that corporations not be allowed to be irresponsible. That changed in the shambles left behind by the end of the Civil War and the assasination of President Lincoln. The laws were changed and reflect the corporations of today. Don't get me wrong I am probusiness, but I don't believe in irresponsibility.

    Wow... I really want to thank you for posting this.

    I had seen this documentary talked about before on this site and others, but had not mustered up the motivation to go rent it at the library yet. Having the link provided to a free online version was wonderful, I just watched the whole thing.

    I've heard so much about this video, but never gotten around to it until now.

    Thanks for sharing. It definitely did not disappoint.

    Thanks for the link, I have heard so much about this documentary. Interesting...there should be a high scool requirement about debt and responsibility

    Amber, Funny you should say that. Over on the Debt Proof Living boards that same sentiment was posted (about this film being required viewing for all high school students) and I put in my hearty approval of that idea! I think it would make a real difference to our teens & the future of this country when it comes to financial responsibility.

    I wish they had a class for me in high school (more than one)
