I wish I could afford j crew. There will really be no chance when the dems decide to take another 5% percent of my money for their brillaint government sponsored '401k' which I will have no say in whatsoever. I will have to use any extra money to do my own investing for retirement so no cute clothes for me. The big question is whether or not they will take my current 401k balance and transfer that amount. Will I have a say in that? That will be interesting.'Cause that is like, you know, taking my property. Would people get pissed off about that? Or are people not even aware that a sub committee was called to investigate different ideas to save the American people from the stock market. Gosh darn it, I had no idea that putting my money in 401k had some risk in it. I wish it was only about being 'cute'. All your furniture is pretty rocking! Really it is.

Obviously Anonymous is not an Obama supporter. I always thought J. Crew was the quality affordable brand. True it’s no Mossimo Giannulli from Target but it sure isn’t Piazza Sempione found in Saks. If you have a 401K and can invest, chances are you can and will be able to afford J. Crew no matter who’s in office.

Michelle is very cute.

la chic- man, I tried. I really did. Honest to goodness I want to be an Obama supporter. I just can't. But actually my comment has more to do so with the ones controlling Congress and the Senate. I just really encourage everyone to take a look as to what was discussed. An additional percentage will be taken out of your paychecks on top on Social Security. 401ks as we know them will be dead. No matching from your employer. No tax savings, nada. The government is eyeing all that pre tax money! The government likes to say they are going to invest it for you but it would only go up for inflation. The governmet would decide when you actually retired and received this money. The government would decide how much money you got every month. And the great thing is when you died the government wouldn't give the balance in your account to your family. It would be absorbed back into the government coffers. I thought we already had a Social Security program? And again I mention the possibilty of the government taking your current 401k balance. Something you have no choice in. Argentina did this and their stock market tanked one week after the government took control of private 401ks. and the really cool thing is since you won't be able to deposit money into your 401k pre tax your taxes are essentially going up. Wait, I thought I was promised that everyone making under 250,000 wouldn't see a tax increase. Wait, they changed it to 200,000. Wait wait, Biden slipped up and said it was 150,000. But can I just say that thank the sweet heavens j crew stopped doing those stupid twill pants with whales on them that were so prominant several seasons ago?

from one anonymous to another:

isn't it funny how the term democrat has come to mean "greedy communist" to all you right wing folks?

the government is always going to take your money, regardless of which side of the aisle is running it. don't fret, the muslim african terrorist isn't going to turn our country into 1930s russia.

Happy anniversary!

Nope, sorry- I am not a right winger. I just vote on the issues, man. I don't believe for one second Obama is a African terroist. Never said that and don't believe it. Never said democrats were greedy communists. Those were your words. That was a low blow. I had really high hopes for him. I am a firm believer in a divided government because both sides seem to screw things up when they have complete control. Just please everyone keep your eye out on the Congress and the Senate. That is all I am saying. And yes, I am aware the government will always take my money but you are missing the point. I just never thought the day would come would they were actually talking about possibly taking actual money out of a 401k account. That is part of the plan. I was just trying to point some of the stuff that is going on with just a little bit of good humored snarkiness- I never became hateful. So please don't make assumptions about me and I won't make assumptions about you. But really, take a look at the transcripts. But hey, love all around. And anon, I bet we could actually have some stuff in common. I adore all of my lefty friends but do love bringing up things that make them support their views and they do the same for me (even though I smack in the middle of the issues and will give props to both sides- aren't I so open minded?). We need every bit of love and understanding we can get- however it turns out on Nov 5. or nov 6..or nov 7....yikes. And I still hate the stupid whale twill pants. Now those are something a right winger would wear. I would never be caught in those things. Come on anon- you are with me on that, aren't you? Please?

Can't wait to see more pics of your vacation! Please tell me you wore sunscreen.

Wow Jamie, who knew "Michelle in Jcrew and Brian in your hat" would cause such an in depth political debate? I'm sure that was your intention when you posted the two photos! Love your puppy! VA
