Someone Sure Hasn't Heard About the Revolution

I just read the following bad advice on CNN MONEY.

Wouldn't you know it would come from a law professor? The premise of the argument is faulty. And it smells of left wing political leanings. The article says people are stupid. People won't change. Regular people can't handle or manage money. The government must step in and save the day with regulations.

I say............BALDERDASH.

People are smart, creative, industrious and created by God with great capacity for change. We see it every day. People not only can, but MUST learn to handle money. The Government represents the very worst of money management understanding. The last thing we need is Government meddling any more than they already do in our finances. Their place is to get the heck out of the way and let Free thinking, Free markets, Free people create successful futures for ourselves and our children.

The article just goes to show that having a law degree doesn't grant you good judgment. Brittan and I are classic examples of normal people who learned to manage our money. We're not rich, but we're working on it. It will take a couple of decades, but it's coming. It can for you, too.
