Just Misses the Mark

This podcast just misses mark. It has great info and exposes a lot of issues with the fairness of our lives. It misses the mark, however, when the host sometimes holds such strong reverence in his point of view he is unwilling to consider alternate views to the point of arrogance. It happens rarely enough that it still makes for a great show.

Wah...I don’t want to be a victim

Can’t believe this dribble. It’s one thing to look at something “in a new way”. It’s another thing to skirt your responsibility has a grown adult. Join Credit Karma or something, Mike. Take some responsibility for your own finances and credit identity. You are a victim, wah, even if you don’t want to be. And it’s because you weren’t responsible. Not because someone didn’t “ref” the situation correctly. Take care of yourselves people!!! We do not need government to be are referees.

Excellent

Michael Lewis is a master storyteller. He finds storie that are so interesting, and important-in this case about the erosion of fairness in this country, because of the devolution of the referee in American society at all levels.
