I hereby dub this “The Pizza Revolution.” Out of basements all across America, the people come together to demand jobs and freedom and to snarf up the donated za.
Seriously though, the sociologists among us ought to get on this new metric – judging revolutions by pizza orders.

Jubilee time! You long-haired, bond-holding aristocraps!
I was able to wrest my mortgage from the zombie hands of Bank of America and get it set up in my credit union about a year ago. I had to pay a sizable amount (by my standards) to get a low interest rate and a shorter term even as I had really stellar credit to offer.
I hope the Obama admin does manage to arrange for lower rates for struggling homeowners. I’ll consider my cash contribution to Fannie Mae a refund to the government for the interest deduction I got on the old loan. Fair enough for me.
The government worker to contractor scenario is familiar. It’s what George “pre-Macaca” Allen did as governor of Virginia to the state department of transportation. He fired a bunch of state employees and hired some of them back at higher salaries plus middleman fees for contracting companies.
So where exactly is Obama getting his ideas from?
