0% interest rate by Lounge Trekker on 17 December 2008 5:23am
The US Federal Reserve cut it's interest rate to .25 - 0%. Does that make your eyes bug out or what? Now is the time to be happy about having a flexible mortgage whose rate will hopefully go even lower.

Way past the time to start living within our means. Goodbye x-mas (Christmas is all good), good buy new cars every two years, goodbye unnecessary travel. Wow.

If I can't eat it or drink it, I ain't buying it.

It's bitter and twisted here.
Since my husband left us all (oh gawd here we go!)I've come to rely on the interest from the dregs of my marriage.
"Get a job!"
I can't sell my body so I WILL have to write that autobiography, which also has 0% interest rate.

Why can't you sell your body Ginny ? Does the bank own it ?

0% interest ? Thank god I've got my savings with Bernard Madoff, great returns.......oops, he's just Made off with my money !!

Maybe,Ginny,did you pledge your body (which I'm sure is body beautiful) to the bank as collateral in a latter-day faustian pact,to take out/secure a loan to write your autobiography?

Seriously,I'm very sorry indeed to hear your husband walked out on your family:what a rotten dog; you should have thrown his shoes out after him,huh?

(If you need a loan for Christmas,just let me know..)

Sorry again, Ginny.

I daresay you don't want the practical advice - plenty of people will have given you that - I sympathise very much with the INDIGNITY of it all. And the hurt.

Ouch, Ginny...may the wheels of karma run over his dogma sooner than later.
Re: 0% interest rate by tucsonmike on 17 December 2008 9:46pm
Yes, it is time to refinance things...
