  • Suze Orman Recommends Bankrupting Retiree – Without The Benefits

    [article text deleted by moderator due to copyright concerns. Google "Suze Orman Recommends Bankruptcy Retiree" to find the article.]

    Mods please move this thread since it apparently can't be linked up. (why does that happen?) anyway...sorry!


    personally for me, my elderly dad (96) and myself fight about this orman lady. i think she really has given very poor advise to many. but he absolutely LOVES her. i guess, to each their own.

    TB,

    For years I have been saying that this lady is an idiot. ("Student loans are never dischargeable" - come on - she apparently does not know how to read or think). One of the most irresponsible "celebrities" ever and it is such a shame that organizations like PBS give her a voice. She makes millions off of selling her books and seminars and, that, to me, is nothing more than running a “legal” con-game.

    Someone should forward this link to her so that she can see what we really think. . . not that it matters since she is making a mint off of the ignorance of others.

      des,

      hopefully she has seen it! maybe she will stop pushing information which is far from true. i understand she has a large following, however, if that following is indicated by the likes of my father then i understand it somewhat better. you know that saying their is an butt for every seat, but this lady is off the wall.

      once i was listening to show when i was visiting my parents the advise she was giving a young couple was so off the wall and unrealistic. impossible goals, but she gets away with it.

        TB,

        One of the issues we face with parents (depending upon their age and mental capacity) is that typically the older one gets the more conservative one's beliefs. I see it with my quite elderly folks. Coming from an extremely liberal background it is tough for me when I hear the ultra right rhetoric from them today. Due to their age I understand why they have turned so far away from what I grew up with (tolerance and understanding for all) but it is tough nonetheless. Orman’s “teachings” (I liken her to someone running a “cult”) play into the conservative voice that we hear more and more about but that, in my opinion, does not mimic the voiceless majority around us. I do not mind the conservative approach (tolerance) but I just wish those with the loudest voice would get their facts right before they try to sway the public.

          Tobee,

          If the link was to the bklawnetwork-apparently there is some sort of isue between that site and this one and you can't transport the link here.
          A shame because they have some really good articles from time to time that are worth sharing.

            des,

            i think your point is right on the "money" here. get your facts straight before you put them out there for millions to be mislead. i too, liken her to a cult like attitude, and very much agree that many, as they get older do become more conservative. we too grew up in dangerously well educated liberal household, ( i only say that because political discussion were extremely hot and heavy as well as social issues) all though i do recall when one of my parent broke party lines for a presidential election i recall them not speaking to one another for weeks LOL! social issues were quite important to them in those days, and frankly, i was surprised to hear my parents view on this lady. orman and rush, between them both, i can see the new show hitting the airwaves, those two could put the word conservative into one of the ten commandments.
