There are some things we Americans have no problem talking about.  Our family, for example.  Ask us and we'll be happy to talk about them.  However, there are other topics we'd really rather not discuss.  

When someone asks you about credit card debt, do you break out into a cold sweat? Seems like you're not the only one to feel this way.   A recent survey for found that we really don't like to talk about our credit card debt.  82% of Americans surveyed put credit card debt as the number one topic they don't want to talk about, followed by sex, salary, monthly mortgage or rent payments, health problems, death of a loved one, weight, religious views, political views and age.  Three of the ten taboo topics involve money.    I'm not suprised.  Are you?    Is money a taboo topic for you?
