If Romney had won, I’d have gone down and gotten a new (used) truck. Now? Forget it. I’ll stay with the one I have till it falls apart. It’s long paid for and runs like a top.
Excellent thread sir! :D
Excellent thread sir! :D
#1 Cancel your cable. You’d only be supporting the MSM that lied and defended Obama to the tooth and help secure his re-election. I cancelled my cable and saved $1000 from going to Hollywood and the MSM.
#2 Get some business card printed up that say “Obama’s government has taken all of my money and I am unable to leave you a tip. You might try calling the White House at: (phone number) and ask Obama for your tip.” Leave this on the table whenever you go out to eat at restaurants or places where tips are customarily given.
#3 Before hiring anyone to do work on: your car, lawn, house,etc. Ask them who they voted for if they either won’t tell youor say Obama, tell them “Sorry I cannot trust your jugdment when it comes toimportant matters, how could i trust your judgement when it comes to my car...”
I already do some of those things out of necessity. I do however savor my conscious decision to boycott UAW made vehicles and with one exception, I have done so for the last 20 years.
The whole union industry can circle the drain as far as I’m concerned. F’m.

Disagree. If you go out to eat, proudly spout off about how Obama is a disaster for the nation, etc. THEN tip like 50 percent.
I promise you that whenever you go out, you WILL make an impression.
Go Alinsky before Galt. Obama is a wounded lame duck. The Congressional Republicans paid no price for opposing him. The subpoenas ought to fly thick and fast.10 million who voted for him in ‘08 didn’t this time. Isolate, freeze and destroy Jarrett (”it’s our time...We’ll pay back after the election.”)and Holder. MSNBC celebrated the deaths and destruction of Sandy so that their demi-god could gain a few votes based not on his governing style but a one time only photo-op. The first item in Boehner’s sequestration negotiation has to be with-holding all funds for the implementation of Obama care. Romney couldn’t fight that battle over Obamacare, now is the time to fight it.
Buy local - support mom and pop, family owned businesses when you can. Hopefully owned by conservatives. Avoid chain stores, restaurants unless you have no other option. Big business will become an extension of government in some cases, requiring registration. If you use a credit or debit card, somewhere your purchases are being put into a database.
Categorize your purchases. Is the purchase a want or is it a need?
Will it help keep you alive when the SHTF? Will the purchase cut your dependence on the system in case the system fails? Remember to keep it simple. If you plan on complex systems for heating, cooling, water supply, food; can you keep them running without spare parts or technical knowledge?
I agree with this sentiment and posted it before this article was written — including the Cloward-Piven angle. I claim no ownership of this idea, but I have been pondering it for some time now.
The article is too complicated. “Going Galt” will not be understood. How about we just call it what it is, economic boycott.
Save money, you’re going to need it anyway. Reduce your expenditures across the board and increase your savings.
‘Order out’ your stocks, bonds, gold, silver. Do not let it get hypothicated. It’s safer in your hands then the brokerage firm. Even your safe deposit box may not be safe enough.
Buy as much of your food as possible at local markets and from local livestock growers to avoid paying taxes.
good stuff, thanks.
This is just wrong. If you can afford to go out for dinner you can afford a tip. Your waitperson is working, just like you, they have a job and are doing it.
You want to punish the Liberal elite, stop going to movies, Buy Ford instead of GM or Chrysler, don't contribute to PBS and NPR. But don't take it out on someone that is working.
screw 'em all - they made it personal when they attacked my childrens future -
I have a 22 and 23 yr old - both with 4 yr degrees and they live in the room they grew up in....neither can find sustainable work. My wife has a Masters and makes $12.50/ an hour.
eff them all - theyve made it very personal, and I'll starve every last one of the bastards....
I especially like the comment that suggested asking contractors who they voted for as a condition of getting the job
weve grown complacent, fat and spoiled - time to toughen up...
MOST IMPORTANTLY - TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF - GET HEALTHY - IT IS THE BEST DEFENSE !
Select out Democrats when doing business. Pay other conservatives in cash when at all possible.
We need word of mouth, off the books, by invitation only co-ops.
The problem with hastening our demise is,With Obama at the Helm in a Collapse what form do you think he will remake our Government? Fact is, there have been MANY people over the past few Years who have written that Collapse of the United States Of America as we Know it,IS Obamas Goal. I agree a Collapse, not a Pleasant experience we are going to face,but if we had A Leader who Believed in the Constitution the Rebuilding would at least give the country a Chance.
With Obama, when it comes in the near future with Folks like Valerie Jarrett,Bill Ayers and the Rest of the Marxist Hourde,we are I am Afraid in for It BIG TIME,First act Obama will Declare Himself President for Life according to any Number of Executive Orders he has already Penned. The Internet will be shut down,we will all Probably end up in Camps somewhere. So Good Luck and God Bless
One thing I am also doing is lowering my electronic profile. I'm not posting on Facebook, except stuff that is docile. I was pretty vocal before the election. However, I do not want my activity to be reported...and I think we are coming to a time in which it will be. This electronic lowering includes my time here on FR. I'll lurk...but posting is going to become a thing of the past. This might be it outside of the gardening thread.
Re #2: I disagree with stiffing the waitress and waiters. Many, i.e. my daughter, are college graduates and cannot find jobs other than waiting tables and the like. Some, perhaps many, I don’t know, are conservative. My daughter certainly is. She has been a freeper since the early 2000s and is on the front lines of the pro-life movement. She is suffering enough under the regime’s policies. Please don’t punish her. But you can still tip off the grid. Tip in cash!
Republicans......."LEAVE ME ALONE, I CAN DO THIS BY MYSELF"!!
I used to like doing the NYT crosswords - used to be the only reason left to buy the newspaper.
Now I print them off http://puzzles.about.com/od/beginnersxwords/a/tuenytxwords.htm
You can also try the local library - they might be willing to give you yesterday’s paper free.
All great ideas - I am feeling better today when I can read articles like this that have actual suggestions to take my mind off feeling helpless to do anything - that is the worst.
Don’t forget the library - Excellent source of free materials!! Reading, CD’s. everything.
Also I agree about buying local completely. Unfortunately a lot of the “organic” type small farmers market produce people around here are “greenie” liberal Obama fans. It is possible to find good old fashioned conservative farms - you just have to be aware.
Maybe about a million of us should move to Ohio and go Galt there.
Some credit where credit is due? ;-)
bookmarked/emailed to family. thank you.
Go to Amazon and buy the 1000-puzzle NYT books—daily & Sunday. They’re not spiral-bound, so tear out the pages to do the even-numbered sides. Take them with you. They’re great for waiting in lines.
I do alterations and clothing repairs. I’m going to charge obamabots more! LOL
Screw that. Ford is UAW. Buy a non-union Nissan or Toyota made in America, and actually have it last twice as long.
Ford did not take ANY bailout money, and Toyota is now a GM partnership.
I couldn’t disagree w/ you more on #2. If you’re going to “feed the beast” by patronizing a restaurant, why punish the help? My advise would be to not step in a restaurant at all...and to avoid drive-through food, too.
We are now living in fear. Big Brother is so powerful that we are afraid to express an opinion.
This is the definition of a totalitarian state.
We might as well not have a First Amendment if we are so fearful of exercising it that we choose not to.
It would be interesting to see the results if your daughter told people how she voted. Prob Dems would probably chastise her then totally stiff her.
It's a tough call. Revolution has to start somewhere. Perhaps a server who DID vote for Obama would get the message if enough of us left such a card and change can begin.
I will be composing a short paragraph which I will be reading to any 'please give' calls to my house. Something along the lines of "now that Obama will have 4 more years, we can no longer give beyond what will be already taken from our paychecks...." i don't know yet the final speech...but I will be doing it!
Thanks for the tip - I also buy the pocket-sized Sudoko books. Part of my “quiet time” while I have my morning coffee.
I also thought last night that I will start selling my accumulated stuff. Convert the cash into more useful stuff while we still can and while the prices are reasonable.
Craig’s list better than ebay, cash only, no trace.
How about a barter thread here on Freerepublic?
#2 Get some business card printed up that say Obamas government has taken all of my money and I am unable to leave you a tip. You might try calling the White House at: (phone number) and ask Obama for your tip. Leave this on the table whenever you go out to eat at restaurants or places where tips are customarily given.
YOUR A GENIUS! I am usually a good tipper, but you have given me other ideas!
Flea markets and yard sales are an excellent source of stuff if you're patient. Prices are generally negotiable and sellers rarely feed sales tax revenue back into the system (even though they are generally required to do so). If they do, the pay in only enough to keep the tax nazis off their backs.
Used CDs and DVDs are available in abundance.
Auctions are a great source for household items. Fact is, a lot of the stuff that eventually shows up at flea markets was purchased at auctions. If you keep your wits about you, you can get some real bargains that way. You will have to pay sales tax there, however.
Only get new Macbook, iPad, and iPhone from Rush Limbaugh’s closet, otherwise buy used.
Ping to you hon...didn’t want you to miss this one.
What about Hondas? Are they union made?
Plus the Ford profits stay in the States. The other automakers profits leave the country. And not all jobs connected with Ford are union.
“they are NOT bound to follow illegal orders...”
Niether is the man in the street, by the way...
Dump Google. I’ve been pointing people to this search engine. They do not record your history.
“The World’s most Private Search Engine”
Free is good -thanks!
Although the print versions were handy during the extended power outage - kept me sane and gave me an excuse to unwind a bit.
1. Obama will ease up only slightly on taxes in order to avoid sequestrian and avoid a major battle right after the election.
2. He will next go after, not so much income, but accumulated wealth,
3. Just like his admin cancelled oil leases, he’ll look at all the corporate cash that’s not being used to hire, and come up with one or more means to steal it, either through some kind of special tax or other means.
4. Those in or nearing retirement with a lifetime of savings will see higher taxes on their savings in some form, and also on their withdrawals, requiring them to postpone their retirement or go back to work of some fashion to support those who don’t work, or must watch their retirement funds get depleted.
5. Contracts with the people, observed by generations, will be violated by the administration, because “there just isn’t enough money.”
6.There will likely be a new war on guns, and/or ammunition.
7. Michelle will continue going on her lavish vacations, because after all, she now has a mandate to do so.
8. Prosecutions by the justice department, and resultant sentencing will increasingly be based on race or ethnic background, with favored minorities being treated less harshly and excuses made for them..
9. Confrontation with the US Supreme Court seems inevitable, with the administration ignoring rulings, because the only enforcement mechanism is Congress - and they will do nothing that is effective, as they’re in the tank for Obama.
10. Because white Anglo-Saxon Protestants took the bait years ago and began limiting their family sizes, their numbers will continue to dwindle, while other groups continue to increase in size. But don’t look for any protections to be applied to them as minorities.
11. These are just the starting points. We’ve lost our country as we knew it.
What does hypothecated mean?
