I feel I have a lot.. but it depends on how deep you take the question, and where. Some days.. well most days when i'm going to work.. I feel that I have no control.. but I would have more control if I was more moderate with everything and continue to get better with my money. Some might say they have little to no control because they were born with a number to identify them (ssn) and they are also born into a place where they are paying money (taxes) to fulfill a powerful few that doesn't guarantee to benefit them. Though if you care not about that above and look at the little things you might have or use everyday and appreciate it... then I guess you have all the control? ?
