I ran across a very disturbing article. Sorry if it's been posted before.
The disturbing part is this graph
Apparently only 36% of polled Americans have enough in savings to handle an unexpected $1,000 expense.
I'd like to state for the record that if you don't have a grand in savings you can tap then your NOT in the
frickin middle or upper class of society. Sorry. You Fail. Try again. I don't care if you have a Porsche in the
driveway. If you don't have any liquidity then you are at the mercy of external events and that is what being
poor IS and the poor are 64% of the U.S.
What really sucks is this party is only just getting started. We ain't seen nuthin yet.
