    Save up money to buy things as the credit card with lowest payments, you will find that you pay three times as much for the item. ( $80.00 item on a card costs you $240 with 6% interest with $10.00 payments). If you charge something pay the bill in full to show no interest.

      Better yet, don’t feed the banks by giving them your money. NO CHARGE CARDS AT ALL…NO SAVINGS ACCOUNT, AND ONLY LEAVE ENOUGH MONEY IN YOUR CHECKING ACCOUNT TO PAY YOUR BILLS EACH MONTH…
      A savings account is a joke anymore…any interest accrued is lost through (government induced) inflation and taxes. Credit cards are no more than a legal way for the banks to steal from you. And leaving any excess money in a checking account allows the bank to use your money without compensating you for the profit they make.
      As for an IRA or 401(k), the government will soon be taking that money and replacing it with treasury bonds while they use your money to feed their multi-trillion dollar budgets.
      Take your money, invest it in things of intrinsic value that you can lay your hands on when needed…

    Is there a panel looking at possibly shifting some of the benefits that FGOs and FOGOs receive to supplement enlisted benefits? Perhaps by charging an optional “services fee” based on rank that would provide greater access to enlisted services while limiting access only to those officers who buy in. — AF Major (active duty), Maxwell AFB
