Discretionary Income?


On February 26, I posted “American’s Sense Of Entitlement And Envy“-

So from the mouths of our leaders came,”the flow of credit is the lifeblood of our economy” or in the words of George W. Bush after 9/11, “Go shopping, America. Get down to Disney World in Florida,” or something to that effect.

This is Newsweek’s cover this week.

Click on the Newsweek cover above –I Want YOU To Start Spending-to read a short article:

What? Are they actually kidding us?  Even if I had money to spend as I wish, I would not in “…the times that try men’s souls spend because Washington wants my family and me to start taking risks-AGAIN!

  1. HI Liz thanks for the link to the Thomas Paine I will read that later before I go to bed. It looks very interesting. I saw the YouTube video of a Thomas Paine

    though he is really not Thomas Paine I thought it was interesting. This video however is from the summer of 08. I would love hear what he has to say now. Now that things are worse then ever. I am wondering if America will recover or if we just fail and I am trying to figure out what becomes of us. I have cried and gotten mad and made phone calls and prayed. It’s just so frustrating. Thanks for sharing your views with us. Hugs

    If you’ve read my blog recently, you know I’m no Jon Stewart fan. But I am a big John Hodgman fan. If our ever-loving government wants us to spend money, then they need to borrow a page from Hodgman: Emergency Christmas. I’d also like the two weeks of vacation that I get with regular Christmas for however many Emergency Christmases that the government thinks we need.
