Particularly when it is one of the largest shopping seasons of the year.
Then you're a moron. If you're buying ANYTHING this holiday season without paying CASH you're an idiot.
Don't go into debt for Christmas shopping for stuff that most people can do without. All the smart money is saying that in 2010-2011 you should do everything you can to make sure you don't have any debt.
After all, it's not like most people who celebrate Christmas are actually Christians or celebrate it for what it originally stood for. I would estimate that in well over 90% of American homes, even in those who claim to be Christian, the baby Jesus is hardly mentioned on Christmas Day.
I'm atheist, and I don't celebrate Christmas. To call it a "celebration of family" is hypocritical, especially if you're non Christian.
It amuses me the number of people who claim to be atheist, but then jump all over the Christmas holidays every year.
I'm not really saying Bah Humbug, I'm just saying that if you're a true atheist, then the most hypocritical thing you can do all year is celebrate Christmas, the celebration of the Birth of the Son of God.
I'm also not African-American, but to me, Kwanza makes so much more sense as a celebration of family and friends.

basically we do know whats going to happen and the fact that China is holding up the US this is very plausible basically for a currency to be worth something you need a buyer of it now if your major buyer is offloading in small amounts then when they get their lose to a minimum then announce they will no longer be buying well then yes your dollar will drop.
Then the second thing that gives your currency power is the fact that commodities are priced off your dollar if they change that your currency has lost all it's power and the huge bluff your government has done since WWII after they disclosed they had no more gold and said our dollar is good is all going to backfire and fast.

Wisdom for the ages...
Outside Independence Hall when
the Constitutional Convention of 1787 ended,
Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin,
"Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?"
With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded,
"A republic, if you can keep it."
