As far as I'm concerned, that should be recorded by every american and submitted as official evidence when criminal trials begin. No way can these thuugs break our backs any further with this elitism-invoked slavery and servitude. This is the final straw---They have declared war upon the people.

Based on how I feel, what I am seeing on here, what I am hearing on the tv, and what I am reading on other sites... this is going to bring on something historical. Weather its the crash of the US, a revolution, or whatever the case.. The people are pretty much standing together on this one.

Here's what I'll be doing as my very own "quiet riot:"
I have single-handedly passed a bill in my OWN house (it's a dictatorship, sorry) which mandates the following: from now on, we will not spend money on any @8#damned thing that we don't absolutely NEED. Here's what made it into the bill:
beer (husband insisted this be added...as a benevolent dictator, I agreed)
foot massages (will train husband as concession for beer)
EVERYTHING else currently in the household budget goes out the window...no ifs, ands, or buts.
We're a two-income household; since I'm not gonna be keeping up with the Joneses anymore, I think I just might quit my job (thus lowering income taxes). I hate my job anyway!! I've always felt that I'd be much happier and peaceful as a full-time homemaker, but always felt the need to bring home a lil' bacon to spend on absolutely worthless, disposable crap...not anymore.
If we all stopped spending, you'd better believe Wall Street would feel it, and so would the House, Senate, & President.
