Well today is a good day, since I finally made my last payment on my car loan!
Now, according to Murphy's Law I fully expect the engine to either blow up or the car to get totaled somehow...
It's definitely nice to have that debt paid off. However, now that money is really just going to be spread around to pay off the various other financial institutions who still hold me in indentured servitude.
People who go on whining about losing our imaginary freedoms & other such nonsense are wasting their breath as long as something like a loan or credit card exists.
