Suck it up

"We are now in the golden age of thieves. And where I come from we put thieves in jail, we don't bail them out." — Rep. Pete Visclosky, Democrat.

At least one Democrat is making sense. We have become a nation where we reward bad behavior and just throw money at any problem to fix it. This is not one of those times right now.

Come on people, suck it up. If you're not already doing it, it's time to take personal measures to save your money in a bank, buy bigger shoes for the kids now to wear next year, junk your SUV and carpool, buy in bulk, etc.

Your dollar today is worth more right now than it will be next year and the next 5-10 years from now. Major inflation is coming when this bailout comes and if you are not prepared you will be scrambling to find flour to make biscuits.

This crisis may be one of the best things to happen to this country in a long time. People are going to have to go back to the basics and live within their means (if they even know how). We have become a fat and lazy nation that lives like there is no tomorrow with our excess's. Giant SUV's, giant TV's, giant hamburgers......living on money we don't have and want to keep borrowing more.

Enough. No bailout. Suck it up.
