Suck it up, pal. Everybody's making sacrifices. Life isn't fair, and it's really not fair this year. The majority of homeowners who didn't default are paying for a large minority who did. Retailers who did little to cause the crisis are getting killed. Collateral damage is everywhere. But guess what? The people who can most afford to make sacrifices, the people who did most to cause the catastrophe, the people who are benefiting most at the expense of taxpayers, are whining the loudest. Quite amazing.
