Sinking Like A Stone

For now is the operative phrase since this is probably the tip of the iceberg.  More banks are going to fail, we're already starting to print more money and the crew without a clue has bailed out everyone except the little people who were encouraged to buy the homes they couldn't afford and those who had their money in the failing banks.  Begging is about to become an honorable profession.

Disgusting.  And for fifty years.  Wow, remind me to never go to Zanesville, Ohio.   The city can appeal all they want, but when a white neighbor has running water with a hot tub and his black neighbors have to buy water from a treatment plant and have it delivered or collect rainwater to do laundry even though they live next to the municipal water pipes, that's discrimination.  By anyone's standards.  Or at least normal people's standards.

You don't say.
"It's a pain in the neck, and significantly interferes with my travel arrangements," said Robinson, the head of the Justice Department's criminal division during the Clinton administration. He believes his name matches that of someone who was put on the list in early 2005, and is routinely delayed while flying — despite having his own government top-secret security clearances renewed last year. "I suppose if I were convinced that America is a safer place because I get hassled at the airport, I might put up with it," Robinson said. "But I doubt it."

He added: "I expect my story is similar to hundreds of thousands of people who are on this list who find themselves inconvenienced."
Bush could be flat-lined and the Demowienies would still roll over and play dead.

The United States is lagging behind in science graduates.  Gee, I wonder why.  Could it be because after many years of rigorous schooling they discover that they will earn less today than they did yesterday?  Bush and the magic veto pen strike again.  Pretty soon even the rich won't want to be doctors, they won't be able to adjust to a lower class of living.  Besides the hassle of trying to learn science while school districts start teaching the not-so-intelligent design theory and refusing to allow independent thought, there are very few models that have both fame and fortune.  Geeks are popular today, but that doesn't mean that everyone wants to be one.



  1. Apparently some of the lenders didn't end up so great either. There's an article in today's HuffPo about a mansion that was owned by Countrywide and it's being sold off. The punch line? The company used to use it for sex parties.

    Poor dears, whatever will they do?

  2. Every day the news gets worse. I'm beginning to understand why people are burrowing into their own little world and trying to pretend like nothing will change.

    We are so screwed.
