    Glad It's Not True!

    Blimey I'd be dead and buried if money was actually nessasary (sp?) but I'm glad to say I rarely use it. Mind you, getting a dentist when I've no address or money is impossible, there's allsorts of other little exceptions that are a pain to get around too. Prescription...

    Struggling

    So I am really struggling with money at this point. I am a massage therapist and recently quit my job at a big spa that I worked at for almost 3 years. I left because the company was corrupt and wanted to take even more of my money than they already were. I left on a pretty good...

    In society now, everything

    or anything that you want you need money to get it. Without money, people will look down on you. Without money, you will have nothing. You would not be able to afford anything. You can't live anymore because the only way to survive in the rich country is money. I'm just a poor...

    Goodbye Money!!!!

    Money has put so many limitations on our lives and has turned most of humanity into a money hungry, money seeking and money worshiping species. I wish money was never created, that humanity had evolved beyond the need to control and to dominate or be superior to one another. I...

    It's stupid, really. We need money to meet our

    needs, so we have to have a job. The government taxes the money we make, so we have less to survive on. Then there is tax on the stuff we buy that we need to survive, leaving even less for us to survive on. Then, every year we have to file our taxes to see if the government...

    The World Would Be a Better Place Without It!

    There was a time when we did not use money. we must have got on pretty good back then. Why did that change? If we all learned to work together and help one another we could live like that again! If you need food grow it. If you want things work for them. Life could carry on as it...

    Paying For Survival

    There's a price tag on your life, your time. How much do you make an hour? That's exactly how much your time is worth. So, you trade your time in order to make money, so you can buy food and water so you can live. You sell away your life for survival. If you didn't need money to...

    Money Money Money, Ain't It Funny

    If we didn't have to have money, we wouldn't have debt, there wouldn't be taxes, and there wouldn't be so many fights over it.  There would be less crime, less crooked government, and a lot less stress.  Problem is, money has been around long enough we would not know...
