I think it's hitting all of us in one way or another. between gas prices and the rising cost of groceries amongst other things.
I am glad for 2 things.
1. I don't drive. I never thought I would say this but thank God I don't drive. I can't imagine what it would do to us if we had 2 cars to feed.
2. Thank God I live close to most everything. We have to go aways to the mall but since neither of goes to the mall but 3 or 4 times a year before December big wup.
We are going on a vacation this year. I totally understand people who aren't and can't. However it's not what you would call a long (in terms of millage) Vacation. We aren't even leaving the state. And we are staying in a Cabin most of the time and cooking our own food. So it's a bit of a different vacation for us certainly. But I couldn't not go on a vacation. That would make me feel like I am letting the fuckers win.
One other point. Jonathan and I are Obama supporters but I have to say I am a little upset about one thing Obama is proposing. I thought the first round of rebate checks was a finger in the dyke type move that really wouldn't help anything. Obama wants a second round of Rebate checks. I just don't see that helping anything. What I propose would help is a decrease in gas prices of about $2:00 a gallon. Sure Gas would still be higher than it use to be but way cheaper than $4 a gallon. As long as people are losing money to go to work the Economy won't be helped.
Oh and God Bless the Republicans for shooting down the tax on Oil Companies. I actually got an Automated call from Lee Terry my jerkoff...er Congressman wanting me to participate on a over the phone town hall meeting on gas Prices. I hung up. It's a good thing too because he may have taken me literally when I told him to suck my left nut.
