Oh yeah. Make the people think they are getting more money in each paycheck, only to get hit owing in April (six months before the election). That should work.

What else are you going to do in a small town when your family income is limited and there aren't a lot of competing stores nearby? After all, a 12-pack of Coke is the same product no matter w...
