"Recovering from the financial crisis is going to take time, but we'll recover, and in so doing begin a new era of prosperity," he said.For whom? Since most of us weren't included in the last "era of prosperity", why would we think the new one is going to be any different?
Congress seems to be suffering a little doom and gloom. Somehow I just can't bring myself to feel sorry for them. Perhaps if they had been doing their jobs all along they wouldn't be in such a panic now that the reality is finally dawning on them that their constituents are in a world of hurt.
It's that day again. Every year fewer people remember. Or care. 45 years ago today I was complaining because I couldn't find any cartoons on television and didn't understand what was so important about somebody being shot and why everybody was crying and saying "no, no, nooo). Whatever it takes, please, please, don't let it happen again in my lifetime. We have no more innocence to lose and tragedy is not a good way to run a country. The reaction to September 11 should have taught us that.
Strike two. While there are a handful of big stars making big bucks, the rank and file falls into the have not category. Maybe if the production companies didn't waste so much money on repetitive advertising and perks for the people on top, they would have enough money to pay the little guy who does the brunt of the work and still keep a reasonable profit. The Dark Knight has made almost half a billion dollars and if it can't show a profit then maybe the production companies are doing something wrong.
