Response to Original message
176. thank you for sharing your epiphany with us
for we haven't heard that kind of hard-nosed advice about being able to transcend reality since our last multi-level marketing rally.

Thanks to your rant I have charged up my credit card to have some bumper stickers printed up with "If you can believe it, you can dream it!", an inspirational saying I made up just now using my very own grit and determination. When they tear down the (former GM/Delphi) factory that is 3 blocks from my house this month (most of the former jobs having been shipped to Mexico) I plan on making a killing selling my inspirational bumper stickers to the demolition workers.

It will of course take some time to digest the startling, new information: "Certainly retail sales may be suffering, but internet sales are booming." So far as I know, only one other person has had to vision to point out how we can all save ourselves by selling our shit online. That person, of course, none other than our dear vice president: Thats a source that didnt even exist 10 years ago, Cheney told an audience in Cincinnati on Thursday. Four hundred thousand people make some money trading on eBay. If only we had taken his words to heart at the time, but thanks to you for the opportunity to revisit them.
