National Root Beer Float Day: Recession Style

As America continues to experience severe downturns in every single market the inevitable impact is certain to reach the wallets of us commoners. With the recession in full swing (as indicated by record high unemployment, falling values of homes, and the flat affect of the general population) this year's National Root Beer Float Day could justifiably be dismissed. As gasoline is costing at or above $4 per gallon..... luxuries like root beer floats seem a bit selfish. However, I would encourage Americans throughout the country to find some inspiration of a brighter future by maintaining our countries most solemn traditions.... like drinking root beer floats this day and all summer long!!!!! Yes in times like these when every cent spent must be well thought out and used very wisely it may be too much to ask to celebrate this national day of root beer bliss??? But what if we could do it for less than $3?

Yes for less than $3 you can grab a half gallon of generic ice cream and a 2 liter of store brand brew and proclaim that we are stronger than this recession!!! We will get through these tough times but it is in these times when it is most important to hold on to those things that will sustain us which include reminders of what makes our country great!!!!!

I found my float ingredients for just under $3 at my local Wal-Mart.....

Happy Root Beer Float Day!!!!!

Now your making me feel bad for using Sprecher and Haegen-Dazs Vanilla Bean. Just my one float alone cost about $5, and I made for the family.
