McCain says bad economy all in our head. Yes, the fact that people can't afford gas in their cars, the utility bill, and the rising food prices - these things are totally psychological. We only believe it's bad because of the media's bad mouthing "we may or may not, maybe, kinda, but hopefully not, be in a recession" talk. So rework your budgets people! I think I'm going to buy a new calculator that has pictures of pretty flowers in place of numbers.

What the government should really do is prescribe Valium and Prozac for the nation. It's obvious we're in some sort of menopausal delirium. Plus it will help the pharmaceuticals.

My amazon card emailed me today begging me to use it. I'm sure it's lonely, as I paid it off and put it in a drawer somewhere out of sight.

They have this point system where if you buy shit with it they award you so many points. When you hit a certain number they give you $25 to spend at Amazon. But NOW if I sign up, I get 3xs the points !!!OMFG!!!

So I'm guessing I need to spend a few hundred to earn the points to get $25 off my next purchase at Amazon. Then add in the massive interest rate fee.

But I have to admire the marketing scheme in a time of economic desperation. "Please use our card. PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE! AH, COME ON!"
