Most all Americans were against stimulus 1, and We spoke out. However, We are now taxed without representation; that is Our representatives in
Congress are bought, and paid for by special interest lobbies.
Now the next coming solution is gonna be stimulus 2. I am not, and I know most of You are not fooled by this plan. The wool will not be pulled over
Our heads, again.
In the title I wrote,"Doesn't Have To Be This Way", and it truly doesn't. Our govt. is hyjacked by crooks, liars, and thieves. There is
something We can all do; that's keeping Our collective earnings in the local community. I'll give an itemized list of examples:
*Choose to eat at the local Mom, and Pop Restaurants; instead of the mulit national chain eateries. While McDonalds, Pizza Hut, and others cram GMO
food down Your throat, Your local Mom, and Pop will cater to what the local buyer expects; non GMO food.
*Don't go out to buy a new car, lawnmower, or appliance from a multinational chain. Find the local mechanic, possibly even Your neighbor is a
retired Mechanic; pay them to keep Your car, lawnmower, or appliance running in tip top shape. It keeps Your monies local.
*Find Your local Mom, and Pop Produce stand. Buy Your staples local; drive right past the multi national huge box store, and to the local man. The
multinational corporate guys harvest the vegetables early, spray them with crud to make them stay ripe looking. Your local Person will cater to the
local communities wants, or nutritious non GMO foods desired. Farmer's markets are all across the country. Find one, or if there is a void fill it
with Your own organic produce for sale. Buy Your meats from Your local area. Don't buy from the box stores. Most areas have local butchers who in
turn buy from the local rancher. Get Your meats locally. Also, don't forget about Your dairy, and poultry needs.
*Everyone here is working on a computer right now!!! Don't go buy, or have Your computer fixed by the mega box stores!!! Have Andy down the street,
or any neighbor who is skilled with computers fix it. There are several alternatives to buying a brand new hunk of junk; they never have what You
want, and are loaded with junk promotional programs. Buy local, get what You want, and it'll be cheaper.
*Shop at local retail stores. Many times these small Mom, and Pops will carry goods from the local area. As best You can stay away from the huge box
stores.****MAKE SECOND HAND COOL****** Go to Your local thrift store to shop, or local NGO selling thrift goods. Almost perfect, is easily made
*Keep manufacturing, and fabrication local. Instead of running to places like SEARS, JCWHITNEY, or NORTHERN TOOL. Find the local machine shop, local
tannery, the local leather craftsman, or the local furniture maker. I guarantee most communities have these.
*Last, but possibly the most important, is thinking outside of the box. Many People are out of work. It never hurts for them to ask, or for You to
ask them to perform domestic duties.... Not a maid, but other. A cake at a box store costs minimum of 12 bucks. Maybe Your neighbor who is a stay at
home spouse would like to bake You cakes for 8 bucks; don't laugh, all completely honorable. Even bread is now running 4 bucks, how about Your
neighbors fresh bread for 3 bucks. Again think outside the box. Keep Your hard earned monies local every chance.
I know the list I made above can be added to, and by all means please do. Our government has long forgotten about the People; they are in the pockets
of Special Interest Lobbies, or multi national corporations. As long as "We The People" support their system, We will be enslaved. They are
purposely bringing down the proverbial building now.
It doesn't have to be this way, WE ARE CHANGE!!!!!!!!
Read the article, it's talking about even more IOU's, written with Our blood as the future payment of the debt.
Obama is considering "Stimulus" 2. For our trillion dollars, "Stimulus" 1 has resulted in increasing unemployment and increasing debt, yet he
contemplates Son of Stimulus. China owns ever more of America and the U.S. is becoming ever less creditworthy. The amount we have to pay just in
interest, is approaching the total budget for national defense! And federal spending is accelerating?! Will we, not to mention, our children, and
grandchildren, suffer profoundly from our profligacy? Government programs (yes, Republican-initiated programs, for example, the Bush bailouts and the
Iraq War, are equally at fault) are usually terribly inefficient. Think Amtrak, the Postal "Service," the public schools, the nearly bankrupt Social
Security and Medicare, the Bailouts, $75 hammers, the Bridge to Nowhere. Many government programs are actually negative in effect. Consider, for
example, Cash for Clunkers: dangling taxpayer dollars in front of people poor enough to own bad-gas-mileage clunkers so they can go deeply in debt to
buy a new car (80% of which have been foreign, by the way). And of course, dumping all those cars and their toxic components and fluids into landfills
is an environmental disaster. Plus, car dealers are screaming that they have laid out the $4,500 per car to customers and often have not yet been paid
by the government, thereby killing their cash flow, a business's lifeblood. The government can't even write a promised check in a timely manner and
they want to run a "public option" health care system?
Feel the rage! Feel Your blood coursing through Your arteries!!! We are the Power; We are People.
Wake Up, Stand Up,
