Pinch more than an inch

First, we heard this from Bush's radio address:
"Good morning. American families and small businesses across the country are feeling the pinch from rising gas prices."
Then this from a Bush interview on CNBC:
"I will be talking to our friends to make sure if they pinch the economy too much, it will affect their ability to sell crude oil in the long run," he said.

There you have it. In deference to BushCo, everyone in the media will eventually use the cute euphemism "pinch" to indicate anything from (A) a reminder to turn off lights when leaving the room to (Z) a horrible slide into survivalism.

Nice Blog!!!   I thought I'd tell you about a site that will let give you places where
you can make extra cash! I made over $800 last month. Not bad for not doing much. Just put in your
zip code and up will pop up a list of places that are available. I live in a small area and found quite
a few. MAKE MONEY NOW
