Credit Cards Will Keep You Going Backwards Instead of Forward

RogerCaldwell 200By Roger Caldwell
I am not a financial expert, an accountant or a bookkeeper, but most people in America are in debt. Many owe on a home and a number of other bills each month, and this week the focus of the article is credit card debt. Credit cards are a way that America is able to buy items and things that they don't have cash for.

Debt is a reality in 2022, and younger Americans are taught at an early age to charge things when they have no cash. When they are hungry they charge food, when they want some new clothes they charge it. The majority of this stuff, they do not need but they are consumers, and it feels good.

For The Love of Wanting Love

marie holmesWritten By James T. DeShay
I woke up this morning seeing one of the saddest stories I have seen in awhile. It is truly sad for a number of reasons, and I will try to explain several of them. We all waste money from time to time; however, when we waste money, it normally does not make national news for others to state their opinions of it.

Snailby Lawrence A. Robinson
I earned my bachelor's degree with a major in biology and minor in general science. While in college, I hung around with people who shared my intellect, you know, egg heads. On some Saturdays during my sophomore year, my friends and I would get together and solve puzzles.

Church Group Says, "Let's Shop Local"

 The United Fellowship of Community Churches, Intl. supports the efforts of local merchants to continue to be viable businesses. Black retail and service businesses are suffering at a higher, unfair level because of the slow economy and minimal or negative support from government agencies. Black churches are failing financially because the congregation members are underemployed or unemployed and therefore their giving to the ministry is minimal if at all. Again, this could be attributed to the lack of support from local elected officials and leaders who are not able to attract those businesses to Black neighborhoods that pay a fair and livable wage.
