The More You Earn, The More You Spend

December 10th, 2009 at 04:49 am

Alot of civilians take contractor jobs over here in Iraq becuase of the U.S. economy and they make alot of money which is partially tax free. Well, I was talking to one of my contractor friends here last night and we were talking about how one of his friends was getting deeper in debt over here. That's hard to believe because like I said if you ask most people why they volunteered to come to a war zone, they say to get out of debt was their main goal.

I guess the friend came over with about $78K in debt, now he has over $150K and he's been here 5 years. What in the world?? You mean to tell me, he's making 6 figures for 5 years and you can't get out of $78K of debt. That means over 1 million dollars has slipped through his fingers. This just goes to show that no matter how much money you make, if you don't change your mindset, or if you're married and your spouse isn't on the same sheet of music as you, then you probably will always be drowning in debt.
