End of credit cards is coming: You can already use your iPhone, Droid or BlackBerry to buy a hot dog at the ballgame, buy your Starbucks latte or give a friend a few bucks. By the end of the year, credit cards may be obsolete.

Cash crunch: Where our money is going: In 2020, 92% of the United States' tax revenue could go to just four things: Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and interest on debt, unless the country makes some big changes. That would leave just 8 cents on each tax dollar to pay for everything else.

Grading Obama on his promises: The president is gearing up for his State of the Union address. We gut check his promises to see which ones he’s kept and which ones still need work.

    Credit cards are here to stay for at least 10 years. Not everyone has an IPhone.

    I prefer flour tortilla over corn tortilla 76% of the time. It goes so well with my beef and Corona.

    I'm sorry CNN, I am not technology savy enough to do this Ipod stuff. Some people have it, and some people don't. Excuse me, time for another cold one.

    If I got to go through all that crap, to use a cell phone to "order" a hot dog at a ball game and charge it to my bank account for $30.00, then you can keep your stupid hot dog, along with your stupid cell phone, and you can even keep your stupid ball game.

    "Total near 137,000 jobs" eh? Since over 150,000 jobs must be created each month just to keep pace with our growing population, that's about 3 weeks worth. Big deal.

    If 25 of the top 100 are creating 700 jobs each that is 17,500 jobs not 137,000 jobs. And people wonder why our education system is failing us? Come your supposed to be professionals, dont you every FACT CHECK your stories? or do you assume we just are to dumb to notice?
