Amen X, and what's really funny is when Washington says "time for Americans to tighten their belt", meanwhile their spending is completely out of control. WTF ?

They could do us in themselves...consumer confidence is the key to digging out, and we need positive pub now! Even with an idiot in the WH, we can't afford this any longer, we MUST dig out now!
