Not One Damn Dime!

There seems to be a grassroots idea movement afoot in the USA. I have now received over 20 emails in less than 2 hours about this.

Not One Damn Dime! asks that people to participate in a 24-hour national boycott of all forms of consumer spending on January 20th. It wants to bring the retail economy to a standstill for one day - to let big business know that it does not want its dollars spent on war.

What makes this even more interesting is that this is Inauguration Day for the US President....who apparently is spending over 40 million dollars on his inauguration festivities.

From what I've read, Not One Damn Dime! Day is a boycott against Political America's involvement in creating and perpetuating the war in Iraq and their investment of dollars into war instead of their own economic and social infrastructures.

So, if you're headed to the USA, the question will be: Are you going to spend any money on January 20th?
