We are seeing more and more on the news lately that everything is getting better. We see the DOW almost hit 13,000 and they say that things are getting better. While it might be getting better for the rich it shore as hell is not getting better for the over 50% of Americans that are in poverty We hear how jobless claims are falling but how much of that is in the fact that people are just plain giving up when there are no jobs to be had. Sure things are getting better if you live in the bubble that the greedy inconsiderate rich live in. For them everything is hunky dory and they could give a damn what you or I might think or actually have to deal with. So is the economy getting better? That depends on your perspective and your wallet or pocketbook. Read more...(879 words, 1 image, estimated 3:31 mins reading time)
It is amazing in this day and age that we see such dinosaurs running for office. By the way, all these comments are that, comments. They are how I see it on the candidates actions and in no way is to be construed as inflammatory. If they get upset that is their own damned fault for acting the way that they do. The reason I call them dinos is because they seem to think that all of America is as narrow minded and as rich as they are. When you have 10,000 dollar bets going on how in the hell can they have a clue what real people have to deal with day in and day out. So many people with silver spoons seem to think this way and it is just not right or true. Read more...(823 words, 1 image, estimated 3:18 mins reading time)
Electile Dysfunction—The inability to become aroused by any of the candidates in an election
GOP primaries are coming up very soon, and with the way things are going, according to media outlets, it looks like many Republican voters are going to suffer from Electile Dysfunction in choosing someone to run against Obama in November. Of course, it does not help any of them with the fact that the press hangs on to their every word, or their dubious histories. There are actually some without dubious histories, but sadly, these guys are not the squeaky wheels, nor are they holding names that Tea Partiers are familiar with, nor are they “conservative” enough for them. It makes you wonder how conservative these candidates have to be to get on these voters’ good side? Are the Tea Partiers wanting to jump start a holy war to bring in that Second Coming they have been looking forward to for over a thousand years now? Are they wanting the whole world to become a desert just like the areas that the Cradle of Civilization, now one of the most uncivilized places on the planet, has become? Are they wanting to live the life of Mad Max, or anything else like any of those other 1980s post-apocalyptic movies showed us? I can understand the reasons for Electile Dysfunction, guys. Do the logical thing this upcoming primary, and use your left-brain to make your choice. You might find logic will overcome the disorder, and maybe by 2013, we will have some kind of wisdom in Washington.
