    pretty funny!

  2. I originally saw this while my wife and I were going through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University. It’s really a gem! And so true.

    Just saw this video myself a couple weeks back. Excerpts are included in the documentary, I.O.U.S.A., which is an interesting bit of information itself.

  4. Patrick says:

    That is a funny video. I actually remember seeing that on SNL a while back. Just as you point on Jim, it really hits on the point that Americans including politicians buy stuff they can’t afford. I love the part at the end where he says can he put it on his credit card.

    Send it to Paulson he needs to understand a few basics.
    Loved Steve Martin’s gooberish facial expressions.
    Thanks for the laugh.
