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.
