The American debtors' revolt
Does this video mark the start of a debtors' revolt in the USA? The young woman who made it obviously hopes so and is asking all and sundry to pass it around. This blog does not get many American readers, madam, but we are pleased to do what we can:
The video maker tells us that she was quite happy to service her credit card until the interest rate was jacked up to a whopping thirty percent, and as she points out, the neighbourhood loan sharks offer better deals than that.
What she wants Americans to do is join her in giving the American version of the old two fingered salute to these wretched spivs who run the banks, and if enough people join her campaign then they can force them to lower their rates. Either that or they will bring the system crashing down.
We await the outcome with interest. In the meantime, please post the video up wherever you can and let's get this rather sexy lady's message out.
Cheers: Martin Meenagh.
