Sadie and Pyper Vance, Ages 9 And 7, Protest Gas Prices After Losing Cable TV: Cable TV was one of the family's budget-cutting casualties, leaving Sadie, 9, and her 7-year-old sister without their favorite cartoons and shows. "Gas prices are too high," Sadie said. "I just decided to come and protest so they'd go down." The girls marched through downtown Monday chanting and carrying signs. "All of my mom's money goes to the gas tank!" Pyper's sign read. Sadie carried a sign asking drivers to honk to lower gas prices — adding that her mom had to cut "cabel."

They are 9 and 7. When I was that age, cable was all I had to entertain myself so if that was gone, I thought the world would end and I would legit die of boredom. They are not spoiled, they are cute littel girl that just noticed a staple was taken from them. You guys are too old to realized how kids are these day. Kids in the suburbs at 7 don't know about poverty and such so quit being so snooty

Kids survived before cable and even TV before cable. Maybe they will pick up a book (check the local library for books and activities) or get some exercise. Their 'protest' march got them out of the house! Beter no cable than no food. Even without the outrageous gas prices this mom did her girls a big favor.

In my apartment building if you don't have cable, you don't have reception - these days, that pretty much is living in the dark ages for kids. I think it's good that it turned into a civics lesson for them, at least it killed one boring afternoon.

Kids today better start learning to lower their standards of living because pretty soon they'll be drinking from a toilet.

This is pathetic. Some parents are having trouble buying food for their children and these kids complain about losing their cable? Suck it up, whiny brats. Maybe you could, oh I dunno, play outside, read a book or study for the spelling bee?

Er...well, I like it that they're learning to protest so young :D but it IS a bit depressing that, like popgoestheworld said, they only noticed when they lost their favorite channels.

What's sad is that children have to worry about this stuff in the first place. Their mom got rid of cable to save money(well not save, to free up money to put in the gas tank). With the ever rising price of gas, what will be next for this family?
