Scrolling through Facebook this morning, there's all kinds of ads for these quit quick schemes.  Years ago there were these get rich quick schemes.  Anything to spark the greediness of society.  Whatever happened to the days of hard work, commitment and intestinal fortitude (I love that word).  As you remember those get rich quick schemes didn't last very long and were the biggest ripoff in history.  They have so many new things on the market now with these strips that you put on your tongue, drops and concoctions that you are supposed to mix.
