Well, I am sure there are cases where a second income is a necessity, and I don't pretend to know everybody's situation. <br><br>As for college, I wouldn't borrow money for that. There are many companies that offer full tuition reimbursement if your child works while he is in school. State schools or community colleges are also good cash options. I paid cash for my community college locally (when I went, but that's another thread altogether )<br><br>
I would think that those of us here who have children, own homes, care for elderly family members, save for college funds, own businesses and pay for our own health insurance would join me in saying that you, with ME, Inc. priorities, are totally out of whack to what a a huge part of Middle America has to juggle each day. Many of us have reponsibilities beyond ourself, beyond being debt free so we can purchase an eMac without using the plastic. I'd like to believe we can measure a 'booming' economy by the quality of our lives and not the stuff we want and hope to buy. FAMILY, Inc. in the middle income bracket is not feeling the economic recovery anything like the ME, Inc. you know. <br><br><br>

More accurately I meant advertising in general...When companies start hiring people like me en masse to work on new campaigns, then you know those companies have the extra capital to do so, and are presumably turning a nice profit...<br><br>Advertising is always the first to get axed in a downturn.<br><br>[color:red]C'mon...you know me.</font color=red>

I would think advertising would boom. In order to make money, companies advertise more. At least that's what I learned while working at a large printing company one summer. That place loved recessions.<br><br>
