If the dominoes fall the right way, the economy should bottom out and start growing again in small steps by July, according to the December survey of 50 professional forecasters by Blue Chip Economic Indicators. Investors seemed to be in a similarly optimistic mood on Friday, bidding up stocks by about 3 percent.If is an awfully big word to have only two letters. Or as my ex used to say, "if my aunt had balls she'd be my uncle." Or as the rest of us put it, "if I only had a job I could pay my bills (on time even!), keep my house and be able to send my children to a good college." Oh well, they have those professional degrees and they've been right so far, haven't they? Plus, is there a domino competition we don't know about?
Why is this being allowed to continue? The Middle East will never settle down, certain parties in all countries are making sure of that. Why is it that the US invaded a sovereign state, deposed its ruler for crimes against humanity (since there weren't any WMDs) and yet continues to ignore tragedies such as Darfur (is it because we got our butts kicked in Somalia?) and the innocent people of Gaza. Could it be that the truth is unimportant in the grand scheme of things?
Bushisms over the years. If they weren't so stupid they would be even harder to read. No wonder Gerald Ford (and not his Chevy Chase impressionist) thought that Bush was on the wrong track.

Yup, as Americans go, we just don't get it.
