There's a $1.00 bookstore in Abilene? I might have to check that out. Might come up there to check in with my taxidermist on some stuff.

Sure about that? Dave Ramsey is still cashing in on just that.

And in this day and age thats an absolutely insane amount of people!

Someone needs to market a whole life plan. We will call it the "Life Makeover" we'll just remind people about holding down a job, working hard, not lying, cheating or stealing. Being responsible and taking care of their family and being good neighbors. Will make millions! Oh wait a minute that won't necessarily make anyone rich. Back to the drawing board.

Well good for you, guess you didn't need it...bu you don't know anybody who'd pay a dollar for some common sense financial advice? I guess that's why so many Americans aren't on foodstamps and welfare. roflmao

Please read what I wrote slowly. My concerns have zero to do with his wealth. I don't even know the guy except to know he uses the church as an inroad to build a secular business. And (as with many with charisma and the gift of gab) that his followers are devoted. Which is apparent.

I stand by my statements about the man's reply. Red flags everywhere in it. The smart ones know their bible like the back of their hand and wield it well for their gain. And are always defensive/ready to tell you how persecuted they are. It's a familiar pattern.



No anger at all here. And no need to read slowly. I'm not as dull as you'd like to make me out to be.

You claim to not know the guy yet you make the statements you do. Which are made out of context, since you don't know him, you know? If you knew him, you would know that his business isn't secular. If you knew him, the statement above would make more sense as he's not to a guy to wear all his church service accomplishments on his shoulder for all to see as bragging rights.

But even if you did know him, you'd still see what you wanted to see.

Yes sir, THE BOOK. Sad to say many of them are sitting under a pile of dust and holding newspaper clippings.

Don't know how many people carry a balance on their CC's, but it's supposed to be a pretty fair sized % of the populace. Which is a pretty solid indictment on the population.

Ramsey wouldn't have approved of my investment strategy. But it's worked well for me.

And I think most people today would benefit from following his low debt load advice. It's worked well for him.

Lot of stone throwers here... When Dave is on his death bed he can look back on his life and see how many people he helped out of slavery/debt, plus all the good his church has done.

For the record, I have not had a credit card for 17 years and have never had my debit card compromised. I also enjoy the same benefits a credit card Company gives you.

after about 11 years found my self much further in debt than I would have ever imagined, 50-60,000 sat the wife down explained we was going to work it out. basically used his plan, not to the letter at all but basic idea. im about 5k away from being where I need to be only took 3-4 years. aside from the concept I don't watch or listen to him much.

I never got that either. Dude reminds me of a used car salesman that snuck into a lot of churches to exploit their generosity with his approach and is now pulling a Rick James, "I'm Rich..." on everybody.

Really? Lots of folks on here go out of their way to say they are good Christians! confused2

Ed Slott and Suzy Orman are who we've listened too, and followed. Straight forward advice on investing, saving, building wealth and no preaching or using the religion card. Credit cards aren't bad. Just like guns aren't bad. It's the person behind them.

Dave Ramsey is great at getting you back to zero, or being broke. Which is to say he points the way to getting one out of negative numbers. What one does after that to capitalize on being out from under debt is what's really going to matter. Everyone's individual opportunities, motivations and situations are different.

Just my opinion.

I invested in creditcard companies.
I barely use creditcards, just enough to keep my creditscore at par (which is another big joke, pushing people to spend so they retain a sexy creditscore)

I credit Dave and his teachings for getting my head out of my azz (financially) and get truly committed to paying off our home (which we did 2x...) 20 years ahead of the amortization schedule. I credit him at every opportunity in financial discussions with folks that can't get ahead. I think I spent $15 on his book and listened to 500 hours of his shows via podcast.

And we only use a credit card for car rentals/hotels/link to my PayPal account. It's a game changer not having to send money to the credit card company every month. Debit card/cash hurts as it leaves your account and you spend less.


Always interested in Marlins. Let me know what you have for sale!

I don't make NP or Sniper kinda money and don't know who Dave Ramsey is, but I got the wedding paid for so I am happy and drinking a shiner by the fire.


Cyber hug fellas and call a truce. In the end, we got more in common than we don't. cheers
