    Interesting times we are in. Now, I can't help but think what's the average Str8 Joe feel about the mess were are in? I have noticed that some here in our Great Country are not too bright......

    The concepts if cutting back and making due are really foreign to a lot of people, especially ones raised during the excess of the 80's. There are a lot of things in our daily life that you really could live without - cable tv, cell phones, internet, convenience foods, etc. People need to prioritize if they are used to living paycheck to paycheck.

    I agree, but why only do these in lean times? Strikes me that most people would be more healthy financially and physically if they did them all the time.icon_lol.gif

    I only get something IF I really need it....My cell is for business...so is the internet (professional web site and email)...TV....only a few stations and I run naked so who needs a gym membership.....Oh, free sun has a nice tan and not over done!!
    I also eat well, but modest. I do not and will not get a huge plasma TV.
    I still like my cars...lol

    Oh the value of the pink dollar. No-one with it should be suffering.

    Kids free is a big saving.

    I'm still able to put whatever I want in the shopping trolley. No cut backs here. icon_biggrin.gif

    the term pink dollar is such a rubbish marketing term - i honestly dont believe that it really reflects a genuinely large section of the gay community anyway.
