With all this talk of recession and the economy and getting things moving in the right direction again, it seems obvious to me what the solution is. Buy presents.
On behalf of the health of the economy, I will accept any and all presents. I gladly perform this sacrifice to help the nation and everyone in it get back into a healthy, strong, prosperous state. And if you are willing to make the sacrifice as well, let people know by wearing this message on a t-shirt from my shop at CafePress.
