Pretty much how i meant it... How did you think I meant it ???

I'll put it this way... those without financial morals and ruthless about their finances will stay afloat much better than those with morals in the future. I already know too many people that have taken advantage of the system and have walked away from everything and have suffered not one consequence for their actions. Only support ! And these people are fairing much better than those I know who stayed the course !
