The government is renegotiating for a $900 payout for workers, saving about $45 million dollars. Apparently families with the Medicare Plan B thingy will also be getting less money but I couldn't find out how much less. I'm fairly certain they've given up on getting the opposition's support and are instead trying to sway the Greens and the Independant parties.

Being that I`m in japan, I`ll only get 20,000 yen [350 dollars Canadian/american ish.] That won`t last too long, I`ll probably just spend it on food and going out with my friends in Shibuya n` Harajuku, or maybe buy some clothes or something. I like clothes. Mm.. Fashion.

If you spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China.
If you spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs.
If you purchase a computer it will go to India.
If you purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala (unless you buy organic).
If you buy a car it will go to Japan.
If you purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan.

If you pay your credit cards off, it will go to bank management bonuses and they will hide if offshore. Same with stock investment.

Instead, you can keep the money in America by spending it at yard sales, going to a baseball game, or spending it on prostitutes, beer and wine (domestic ONLY), or tattoos.

Good thing I'll be buying locally-made gun parts and building a gun.

Go USA!
