    This human slavery is main obstruck this world to be free, without freedom, education and order of law for huminity, this world become hell. As I was child slavery, I know what is slavery and how difficult to compell to life with slavery. Now I am free and feeling what is freedom but thinking freedom is never free when every slaves feel they are free from any kind of bounded slavery.

    These reporters should come to Colombia, South America and take pictures of all the children that are sent to work in the traffic lights all day long for a couple of dimes a day. Worst of all, the government seems not to care.

    Let the TRUTH be KNOWN that 99% of us will work 8-10 hours a day, 5-7 days a week for our entire lives and we will die around 70-80 years old poor and in debt. As such we can now clearly begin to understand that not only are there forces at work driving the direction and lives of the 99% of all of us, but it is safe to now say that 99% of us are indeed slaves. We have some how come to not only realize our very own enslavement, but we have embraced our own enslavement with arms wide open. And to think, many even keep running towards their own enslavement asking for more! I have named this system the U.S.E.S. which stands for, "the United State of Embraced Slavery". It is such a brilliant system of slavery that it transcends race, religion and creed, where it is a system that caters to all races and religions and all the while doesnt even have to be forced upon it slaves. We welcome it, we accept it, and we even come running for more! Quite genius is it not? In fact so genius is this system that I am afraid it is not entirely man-made, rather they've had help from a very powerful force not yet of this worldly nature.

    What is important to note is that we all still seem to have our free will of choice left in tact, at least for the moment. And having become aware of such knowledge as that which has been shared here it is my hope that more and more will share this knowledge so that we may become empowered to make better choices with our free will of choices. It is only a matter of time now before even our free will of choice will be gone. Let's begin to make the right choices now. Please share this far and wide with all whom you may know.

    Love, Light and Power,

    Thanks for the advice on credit repair on this excellent site. Some tips i would tell people should be to give up this mentality that they may buy currently and fork out later. Being a society many of us tend to make this happen for many issues. This includes vacation trips, furniture, along with items we'd like. However, you'll want to separate your current wants out of the needs. If you are working to boost your credit score actually you need some trade-offs. For example you'll be able to shop online to save cash or you can look at second hand merchants instead of high-priced department stores pertaining to clothing.
