MY cultural dissidence!
11-7-12 | Me

Posted on 11/07/2012 4:42:42 AM PST by SMARTY

In protest:

• I will NOT be spending any money which I absolutely DO NOT have to. Let this ass hat turn the economy around WITHOUT MY money and largesse

• I have no confidence in him or his abilities, so I will sit on any plans I had to make large and unnecessary expenditures… Example: No remodeling in the kitchen, etc.

• I will be the turtle who is going to crawl into my shell and wait out the storm.

• I will carry on and increase, if possible, my ‘cultural dissidence’ by withholding MY disposable dollars… I will NOT subsidize ANY Hollywood or media product (NO movies, NO magazines, etc), I will not patronize ANY organization or business which supports this adm!


TOPICS: Business/Economy; Chit/Chat; Government; Politics
KEYWORDS: economy; reelection
Maybe this will work, because I am not optimistic about the Conservative leadership in Congress, up to this point.

I feel that they tolerated TOO much from Liberals and especially they tolerated way TOO much from this President.

I feel betrayed, abandoned and on my own. What other suggestions do you have?

You’re right. It’s time to just hunker down. Time to keep your own. I don’t feel like I can even trust the bank... (I should I have ever?). I mean, things are hard enough as it is for my family right now, but I have to make even harder choices. I have never felt so adrift in my life, and I’ve been homeless and jobless.

I’m in Ohio,and trust me when I say that in the rural areas we voted solid Romney.The sewers of Cleveland,Columbus,and Cincinnati just killed us.
Now Obastard will begin the process of rewarding his friends and punishing his enemies.Get ready for an interesting life.

I like the idea of doing without entertainment fluff but you should invest in yourself as much as you can. Don’t be a martyr for the cause because we need everyone to be 100% shape to get through this

I will pay as little tax as possible that enables freeloaders. Hunker down. Watch the 401k and IRA’s very closely. Help your family members who will lose jobs with the huge cuts coming in January.

We lie in SC. We were going to spend $150,000 of our savings to build a cabin in VA. That plan is effectively scrapped. Too risky to spend money now since he will continue printing it until its worthless.

Sorry, VA. You made your choice.

We will never buy another vehicle made by the UAW. Hyundais are better and less expensive anyway.

Starve the beast. The more you spend, the better off Oboma and his minions will be. The freeloaders, who receive $60,000 per year worth of benefits per welfare "family", will only get more.

Get yourself out of debt. Use your money on YOU. During the last great depression, those who had no debt were fine. Those who had debt lost everything.

You don't need to buy any more junk. Pay off your debts, or you'll always be captive to your debtor.

We cancelled cable three months ago. I refuse to support the MSM and Hollywood with $1,000/year (and we’re not poor; we have One million in savings and a combined retirement of over $100,00/year).I just am not going to support those who contribute to our undoing.

(And we have learned that you CAN get by without TV)

Boycott ALL ‘blue state’ products wherever possible. Your post sums it up nicely...decent people should get their children out of public schools, as well. That’s where liberals are created...

Amen to that. I proudly boycott UAW made vehicles and thanks to factories in Kentucky and Tennessee it’s an easy choice to make.

Obomacare gives the government free access to your personal bank accounts. They can legally remove funds from your account without your permission. They don't even have to notify you.

Use your money to pay off your debts, or keep your cash in a safe. If you don't, you re going to lose it. Obomacare is going to cost 2 or 3 times as much as they said it would. They're going to need more cash. They're going to just take it, because people aren't going to voluntarily pay thousands more just so the freeloaders can live a more comfortable life.

Right!

I cleared off ALL debt by 2010, expecting the worst... like NOW.

Also, ‘100% ship shape’ is a given. I have been in moral fighting form all my life.

Conservatism for me EMBODIES the moral high ground and that is where I have always wanted to be.

However, it would have been nice if Conservative leadership had respected the sacrifices we made in order to continue our support of the cause!!

The North East can suck a fat one.

Every hurricane, every blizzard that knocks them on their ass will be fun entertainment for me. I will want to help the children, but the “adults” are just f*cked.

Yep. Every one of them sold the country out for the promise of more free stuff. Let Oboma and his lover Christie deal with it.

Right, GET IT FROM HIM, because he has certainly GOT IT FROM US!!! and we can’t be expected to give and give non-stop!

If the gov. thinks they can spend MY money better and more efficiently than I can, then let them..... but don’t come back for MORE and MORE when you squander what you took inthe first place!

I will NOT purchase ANYTHING from businesses that support Obama. I also will NOT help people who voted for him. If you’re on the side of the road with a flat tire and you have an Obama sticker, I will keep driving!

I agree 100%

I will finish paying off all of mt debt. I only have four more credit cards with relatively low amounts on them. I will not buy anything on credit because the depression we are in will get much, much worst. We will only pay cash for everything the next four years. I was going to finance a second car, but no........I will only buy a cash car.
America has screwed herself royally! The magical negro will finish off our economy, and we all need to be prepared for the deeper misery that is coming. If enough people would not vote after 4 years of what we have been through, then they deserve what they get. The Godless Communist are solidified in power.
Maybe someone will want to talk about the birth certificate now!
We can beat him at the ballot box...........NOT!

I guess we can't ask the government to ‘retrench and cut back’ if we don't do the same ourselves! :)

If we BOYCOTT the adm. so to speak, he'll have to stand and deliver has he promised for so long to so many!

At the end of the campaigning, I saw him spout some positively incredible BS about how things have been turned around by him. Fine, he won't need more from ME

He better NOT come to me for MORE, I am skinned as it is!

I will take care of myself and THAT will be ONE LESS person the gov. will have to support!

I live in Stark Co. Ohio.

There is a lot of Union thuggery here. This place is full of people with very short memories who are conditioned to believe that ‘the rich’ GOT rich by stealing it from everyone else.

Duhhh...How could anyone over about 12 years of age believe such one-dimensional and groundless BS like that!?

KEEP PREPPING. Stop spending and helping Oboma. Now is the time to prepare for yourself and your family. It's about time conservatives took care of themselves and invested in their own interests and needs. The freeloaders have gotten decades more than they deserve already. It's time to hoard cash, and stock up on self sustainable goods.
From now on, it's got to be only about you and your families basic needs. Things are going to get rough no matter what. You're going to need everything you have. Don't waste it on the scrounges. Let them scam someone else instead.

I’m no economic expert, but I think you would be better off to put that cash into a cabin, rather than sit on the cash that will evaporate in value. I think O is determined to destroy the dollar’s value.

In my opinion, Oboma is trying to finish the job his muslim brothers failed to do on 9/11. I think this because he's put all his presidential power into strengthening and enriching the muslims in the middle east, all the while doing what he could to bankrupt the U.S, deplete our military, destroy our form of government, and set up Israel for destruction.

January 2013, which would have been a horrible month had Romney been elected, but one at least offering a chance for recovery, is now going to be a disaster the likes of which we haven’t seen since 1929.

I strongly recommend taking cash money out of the banks and financial institutions ASAP, because our entire economic system may seize up. Virtual money on computer, controlled by others, may become unavailable. A million dollars in the bank and you can’t spend a penny of it.

Most retail may demand cash only, refusing credit, debit, checks, and any other virtual token. Cash is legal tender however, so it must be accepted once a sale has been made.

Already, money boxes and small safes are a hot item, selling like guns. It would be very wise to have at least a few thousand dollars cash at home in a safe place, where only you have absolute control over it.

If there is overnight inflation, or even hyperinflation, you can still spend it quickly. If there is deflation, you will still be able to spend or save “on a dime”.
