    Can you believe this man????
    Bono, the rock star and campaigner against Third World debt, is asking governments around the world to contribute more tax dollars to relieve African countries’ debts. However, he’s reducing his own tax payments that could help fund that aid.

    A familiar paradox about celebrities is that their embrace of progressivism almost never includes an embrace of progressive taxation, i.e., the principle that the richer you get, the larger the percentage of your income you ought to pay in taxes.

    Bono’s band, U2, has transferred the rights to its music catalogue and the rights to U2 merchandise to a tax-exempt company in the Netherlands. So, when Bono performs in New York, London or Sydney, where people actually pay tax, a significant portion of the box office and all the merchandise revenue goes tax free to the Netherlands’ company for licensing the music for the performance, the CDs and the T-shirts.

    “Faith and begorrah! The trut’ is out!” said a surprised Bono when asked about his tax scam. “Dat’s nawful. Divil take de wanker who tol’ you! I’ll bate and mangle ‘im.”

    “Like eh, I need da doh … for me privat’ jit … ta git ta Afr’ca, ‘a course. We got ta git rid a tird whirl dit, so I got ta save me doh ta do t’at. Nah f*ck off!”

    I have $40,000 in credit card debt. I can put my student loans in forbearance for 3 years. Should I do this to pay off my credit card debt?

  • Leo says:

    I’m 23 years old, a student, and physically becoming ill due to the amount of stress I have between school and work, in which I still struggle to pay my credit card bills. What is the step by step legal way of settling my credit card debt? I understand the ramifications that my credit report will suffer, but my debt to income ratio is already too high to get any loans or credit anyway (student loans). What is the worst that can happen? Are there any companies that help students in my situation? Thank you.

    What is the best solution for credit card debt?
    I am way in over my head, I have 6 credit cards and I’m over $40,000 in debt. I have tried to take out a loan at the bank to consolidate but i got turned down. I need HELP!

  • Corey says:

    I have some credit card debt, it’s not to much compared to other people. Like, i would say, a couple thousand. I wanted to know if there were organizations out there that would help me negotiate with collections to lower my debt. That way i could just pay it off in full.

  • Erin says:

    I have a credit card debt of about 7 hundred dollars. I have money saved of about 5 thousand. I am wondering if I should pay it off from the money saved or just continue to pay it from my paychecks. I am afriad that by touching the money saved to pay it I will be tempted to continue spending this money. I also thought about restoring the money that I spend from the saved if I do use it. Is it easy to restore saved money?

  • Toney says:

    I currently have around 10,000.00 dollars of credit card debt on three different cards. I am paying 29.99% on two of them, and 22.99% on the other one.

    I have tried to get a card with a better rate to transfer my balances to, but the issuers won’t give me one because I am using so much of my available credit now. I have not had any late payments on my credit accounts, tho.

    Should I try to get a home equity loan to pay off the cards, or is that a bad idea, too?

    I know that I got myself in this situation, and I am wholly responsible. I do not feel right about declaring bankruptcy, but really want to get out of debt somehow.

    If I am unable to get a lower rate, then I don’t see a way to rid myself of the debt. Any advice?

  • Margarite says:

    I have about 25K in credit card debt. I am planning to buy a 540K house. Currently I have great credit, is it possible to add my credit card debt into the home loan in order to make it a single monthly payment. What is the loan program called? I am shooting for 5 yr. ARM. Me and my wife plan to live there for about 3-4 yrs.
    To add I mean to pay off my credit cards with the home loan.

  • Nick says:

    I am in search of a company or method that will allow me to settle or consolidate my credit card debt. I have researched some companys but I am not sure what is real or a scam. Fidelity debt solutions is one of them. Has anyone had any luck with any of the debt consolidation programs or debt settling programs? Let me know. I need help.

  • Kip says:

    I’m 26 years old, I make about 50k a year and I want to start thinking about buying a house. What should I do with this nagging credit card debt? Aside from car payments, the only other debt I have is $5,000 on one of my credit cards. Can I think about saving for a house, or should I pay it off before I even consider it? Thanks.

  • Gavin says:

    France sent +7,000 ground troops in addition money and a fleet of warships (which were decisive at blocking British from sending reinforcements at Chesapeake). In addition, unofficial French participants such as Lafayette joined the American army. France is never given its fair credit…we talk about France “owing” us for WW2 (they didnt surrender by the way- combined British and French soldiers lost the northern part, while the government was in a civil war and one group decided it was better to ally with Germany..the total armed forces were never mobilized)…so i think we ought to show some respect and honor them just as they do EVERY D DAY (France still awards Americans for bravery- and thanks America publicly and through diplomatic channels – look it up yourself).

  • Kareem says:

    I got 2 credit cards and owe about $7,000 for both of them. It doesn’t seem like much but I was young and stupid when I signed up for these cards and the interest rates for them are super high! I’m paying l;ike close to $100 in interest monthly for both of them. Even if I pay the monthly payments the balance still wont go down! I want to get a loan to pay off my credit card debt. In the long run, I’ll save money, any ideas where I get get such a loan?

  • Louise says:

    Does it hurt your credit score if you have credit cards with no balance on them?
    I have 1 credit card from 2005 and 1 from 2006 which have never been used, and I just must have forgotten about them, so the accounts are still open. Does that help or hurt me?

    Also, I got my free credit report from Equifax, but they want me to pay $7 just to view my credit score. Is there anyway I can view my credit score for free?

    I heard that debt consolidation loans are better because they help your credit as you’re paying them off: is that true? and what legit company could I go to for that?

    (if you are able to, can you please provide legit sources of information, I prefer not having these serious questions answered by guesses or assumptions. I appreciate it.)
    I’d like to emphasize a part of a question… a couple answers said that those credit cards that have never been used are not helping my credit… Well, are they hurting it? Or are they just doing nothing.

    And to be honest, I couldn’t use my credit cards if I wanted to now… They’re technically closed, however the companies haven’t released them to debt collectors. But every company is looking for me to pay either $80 per month or settle by paying a large amount but not the full amount. I have 5 cards totalling $5000 (could be worse… yay for being jobless for 5 months and denied unemployment!). I just don’t know what to do. I tried a consolidation agency but they wanted $130/month… If I couldn’t make my card payments, what makes these people think I can pay that each month. The only thing keeping my credit afloat is my car payment, because I need to car to get to work.

  • Michel says:

    I’m 24 and desperatley need to start paying of my credit card debt. I have tried to consolidate my cards though had no luck as my debt is to big on each card for me to merge them together.

    Basically my debt is as follows:

    St George Mastercard – Owe $5,600
    Bank West Mastercard – Owe $5,800
    Citibank Visa Card – Owe $9,230
    NAB Visa Card – Owe $8,960
    Myer Store Card – Owe $1,300

    There all 95%-98%maxed out.

    Although i also pay $2200 a month in rent, (and my income per month is only $2600). I have a total of another $600 that is charged on my cards every month for contracts that i cant get out of (such as furniture rentals etc).

    The interest + insurance on each card is around $130-$180 per month per card so again its around another $450 per month just to meet the insurance and debt.

    I paid almost $2000 as a whole to my cards last month, and its already gone right back down again, so i’m currently thinking either declaring bankruptcy or just letting my cards run down to $0 to force the banks to stop charging interest.

    Is there any company who can buy your debt of you? as i dont want to pay the banks back, they have already charge me enough in usless insurance, late payment fees and interest to get any favours from me.
