How Is The Economy Affecting You?

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.

The Republicans did block the Jimmy Carter Tribute Act of 2008, the tax on oil company's 'windprofits'. The same idea occured during Carter years and failed badly. Also during great years there was double-digit inflation, double digit interest rates, sky high unemployment. I guess it can be argued that Obama is Jimmy Carter's second term.

Translation: Since I refute anything that poster said with substance and data i'll go to 5th grade-level name-calling.

The 10 people who read this blog will like the comments though.

I am so fucking stupid I posted this twice. Christ I am very stupid. Maybe that's why nobody likes me and people are always kicking my ass.
