    to have a movement to remind them they are
    broke.  They know it everytime the go to the store
    or gas station or try to buy a child a pair of shoes.
    That is like saying a large blouse reminds a woman with child that she
    is pregnant.  Jeesh !

      It is very easy for broke people to spend money.

      Credit cards. Home equity loans. Using savings to buy consumer goods. These are the kind of voodoo that our economy has been running on these past 10 years.

      I think you are talking about poor people. You are right, poor people don't need a movement. I'm talking about broke people. People who have purchasing power but really, really, really, need to not be using it.
