79. Yes
people want and convince themselves they deserve what their neighbor/brother/dad/friend has. It's like an arms race of who can have the most expensive useless junk. People in the United States are just not practical in alot of ways and it shows in their shopping habits. I think most of us don't understand finances or taxes or the concept of a budget. People have to have what they want and they will put it on a credit card if they have to. Any dipstick can get credit - especially if they can't pay.

Myself, I don't have alot of cool stuff, but I don't have a cent of debt either.
