About the only thing I pay for now is rent, ele, gas in my car. I buy food stamps from people 50cents on the dollar, buy fake kohls coupons on Ebay & get piles of stuff for less than a dollar in there. I am smart with grocery coupons, get free stuff in the mail, buy things like Abreva, hair color, makeup, ect...on Ebay & pay no shipping. I win big on scratch offs constantly. I can't complain with my current situation no matter who's in office. I don't let the recession cramp my lifestyle.

Alas, I will have to pay for much. But I will not get what I paid for - I will pay for OTHER people to get it. Why is it termed robbery when someone ELSE takes money at the point of a gun but "taxes" when Obama takes it at the point of a gun (hint: tax LAWS and police are armed)
