You have got to be kidding me! I am just outraged that our government would allow banks, Bank of America for now to issue credit cards and loans to illegal immigrants with no social security #'s. Many US citizens can't get a credit card but a illegal immigrant can.
Just when I think it can't get worse, another insult and slap in the face of the hard working, tax paying U.S. citizen.
A down right sell out.

All you need to do is step foot on a college campus and you've already qualified for endless credit cards. It's in the best interest of credit card companies to lure both the responsible and irresponsible; those that pay keep the company operating, and those that don't get it up the bum, if you catch my drift.

Nea - many work full time and attend college.

He' again is nitpicking.

Some don't have the luxuries of just sitting home, depending on mom and dad for everything.

Amval - you are correct. I see many College kids racking up credit card bills.

Sammie,

I would appreciate you not attacking me on a personal level, I try my best to be respectful of all others on the forums, I would like the same respect back.

Sorry if you feel I was attacking you, by saying Nitpicking

I actually was not attacking you.

Nea - thats one of the problems with some college kids. I think the CC companies make it too easy for some to get them.

On top of tuitions, they're up to debt with CC cards.
