I don't know shit about the economy, but I know lines going down mean not-nice things are going to probably start happening. The phrases people have been throwing around like "700 billion dollar bailout" and "national debt" seem so abstract that I can't even fathom it. It's almost comedy -- almost. They might as well replace the word "billion" with "jaffillionkrillion." Actually, that might make the situation better. Lobby your congressperson and senatorial-whoeverperson and let's get this done!
I want to see headlines like this:
"Senate Passes Googleplex Jaffilionkrillion® Dollar Superrescue With Helicopters for Economy™."
