I am going Galt until this passes...
Going Galt = Cold Civil War
so, this is your farewell opus?
What a brilliant idea, never before posted as a riveting vanity presentation.
Look on the bright side: at least it wasn’t spelled “Gault.”
To each his own..........................
While I get what you are doing and support it, it is not nearly “gong Galt”. That means shutting down all financial contribution to the government. You must shut down your business completely to even start towards that.
Let’s don’t start diluting our own terms.
Yeah, giving up DD coffee and cable tv would be extreme...and honestly, no other way to fight back at the moment?
Yes, there is, but it would entail sacrifice and some risk. Beyond even those creature comforts.
Good point. That always makes me think of Lance LeGault, who played the recurring baddie in “The A-Team.”
No more talk radio..................//.............. there is no other way to fight back at the moment.
Does not compute, does not compute, does not compute ............
Why not just add a “Me, too!” on one of the previous hundred or so “Going Galt” vanities? Maybe FR could add a “Galt Forum” and an “Expatriate Forum,” until everyone gets it out of their systems.
When I click on “General/Chat,” I want to see celebrity gossip and Animal Kingdom Weirdness!
Good on you. There’s no reason to continue feeding the beast that is devouring the world.
LOL. Good luck with that.
Excellent idea. Cutting out expensive coffee is going to send a powerful message!
You need to re-read Atlas Shrugged. “Going Galt” means closing the doors on your business and walking away. By not hiring more employees, I suspect that you are just going to keep piling more work on the employees you currently have. That isn’t noble. That’s just using the election to exploit your workers.
I like the idea of stopping donations. Let them petition the govt they supported for funds.
I see the ‘eat their own’ friendliness out in force here. Where a little sympathy would be nice, the sophisticated kick you while you are down.
We are all hurting - any little thing we can do to take back some of our dollars will help. Unfortunately not all of us are in a position to FULLY disengage from the economic cesspool we are in - but that doesn’t mean that baby steps wont help.
or . . Willie Gault with da Bears in the 80’s
I Googled him ... he’s quite handsome. In a bit of trouble with the Feds for investment finagles, though.
Newsflash: This is NOT going to pass. It is now our reality. It’s not gonna just ‘go away’.
We can become passive slaves (what a legacy to pass on to our children) or we fight all the more.
