“The United States spends over $87 billion conducting a war in Iraq while the United Nations estimates that for less than half that amount we could provide clean water, adequate diets, sanitations services and basic education to every person on the planet. And we wonder why terrorists attack us.”—
John Perkins, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
This is from a book I just started this morning. I have a feeling I am really going to like this one.
If you are looking for a roommate you should get one with a special skill. For instance, one of my roommates make the BEST banana bread in town and maybe on the whole west coast. Every time she makes it I fall roommate-in-love with her all over again and temporarily forget all the dishes in the sink. It is magic amnesia-inducing bread.
If you can’t find a roommate that bakes banana bread don’t get upset, I will . Look for another skill that’s handy. For instance, I know a ton about benefits and health insurance. In my next roommate situation, I hope to exchange my benefits knowledge for an equal dose of car savvy.
Today Groupon sent me an offer for 50% off a membership to the Frye Art Museum. I am going to go ahead and call this the worst Groupon to date. The Frye is a free museum. Of course they do appreciate donations but here is a news flash, you can give yourself your own discount. Say I want to give the Frye $5, I can easily, instead give the Frye $2.50 without having to print anything or enter my credit card information. Also, essentially the coupon is offering the opportunity of being less generous to a worthy cause. This coupon is so many levels of ridiculous.
For the record, there are a couple benefits of getting a membership. You can get member only tours that come with tea and discounts at the museum store for all your greeting card needs. They do have pretty neat cards.
In conclusion, support the Frye directly and pay full price for handmade greeting cards. Worth it.
