Hit 'em where it hurts...

Disgusted at all the money being spent on the war in Iraq, and there are still many units facing danger without sufficient protection? How about the money being spent on Dubya's inauguration celebration to placate all of the big contributors to his campaign?

There's a movement circulating on the internet called "Not One Damn Dime Day" that hopes to send a message about all of this unnecessary spending. It's easy to participate, all you have to do is not spend money on January 20 (Inauguration Day). If this creates a dip in the economy temporarily, it may finally get someone's attention. And it should have no permanent effect on anyone's livelihood, since the money will be spent either before or after the 20th anyway.

So get out your credit cards, consumers, and put them away for the day. This type of "slacktivism" is something everyone can do, and it won't cost you any time or money. Now that's my kind of protest!
