Breaking News Sat. Jan. 22, 2011

Since the weekends are kind of slow as far as news goes, I thought it would be nice to put up a couple documentaries over the weekend to go with the news and give us something to watch. I found this one last night and, although it was made in 2005-2006, it really is kind of creepy to watch. There is a lot of good information in it about debt and the underhanded methods used to trap people. The last part is very interesting. About the bill that got passed just in time to keep people from being able to declare bankruptcy and get out from under their debt. Really makes it look like they knew what was coming and wanted to make sure they still got as much money as possible.
Oh, an interesting thing someone said in the film, that  poor people were the most likely to pay their bills. LOL
That was cool.
Anyway, enjoy the film!
