The Ten Commandments of Spending Money

Thou shalt spend money on things because it brings happiness, for a while.

Thou shalt shop till thou hast dropped, because ye only live once.

Thou shalt spend money rather than save it.

Ye shall have no other priorities with thine money than to spend it on material things.

Remember the Sabbath, and every other day and night, to goest out shopping.

Honor thy credit card.

Spend money, even if thou doest not actually have any.

Take control of thy life, and spend money on some products and that will improve the quality of thy life, even if ye already have that product.

Thou shalt solve financial troubles by spending money on one of the many credit card low rate solutions available.

Forsake spending on problems like public health care and poverty, and let 99% of thine spending be on products and services that benefit oneself and the economic engine.

They don't call it the almighty dollar for nothing.

Feeling a little under its spell eh? No worries - money buys beer.

The dollar the Almighty is appropriate, but I can't help but think what if society worshipped spending on things like health care & poverty, as much as it does on material and frivolous things. There is a certain amount of charity giving each year, but me thinks in general society can do more.
... especially for those who cannot afford beer:)
