My friends kid recently went into the Marines. Everyone proud of him he is growing up so fast. Seems like just yesterday I was walking down to park to watch him play little league. Amazing a young person goes from crying over losing at baseball to being a marine in 8 years.

So he is a man now makes his own decisions. He showed up with a brand new full sized chevy pickup and my buddy was like why did you buy this you had a decent truck. he wanted it and they sold it to him of course. But the interest was total crap and he put almost nothing down. It's BS the way the govt lures young people into a mountain of debt for student loans, cars, housing. If its some plan to help the banks it really is a crime IMO.
