Did someone say that we chose the wrong people to be in hock to? How about the wrong people to handle our money, uh, credit? Summers and Geithner, buzz, wrong! Bernanke, wrong. Volker may be OK, but no one in the Casa Blanca seems to listen to him.
And that certified monster Kissinger is still a player behind the scene, er, screen.

Stealing a line from the past, "that's not change we can believe in."

The crooks have taken control of everything. Must be time to lean back and sing "la-la-la-luh-la-la-la." See, everything is better.

Ultra-manic entertainment will come into vogue again. Some Great Depression era movies almost make your teeth hurt, Mickey Rooney et al smiling, singing and dancing in manic desperation. IMHO.

Obama is shaping up to be the single greatest disappointment of my political life!

who use all his money to do evil and in the end is left all alone..."

I can't top Bob Zimmerman, that's for certain. "Used all of his money to do evil"-- how bad or maybe, how badly off can you be?

Our Man in the White House. I'm doing my best to hold off my complete cynicism. How long can I keep doing that? Not forever. If we are able to change to publically financed elections we'll erase the damage. Well, some of it. But it's not gonna happen. As the cartoon character Bender the Robot is fond of saying, "We're boned."

When nothing you do changes the way things are in the political zone, you might just want to fuggetaboudit.

You say you want a revolution? Weh-eh-ell you know, and so on. As much as I may believe that we're overdue for one at times... Nowadays Americans are tranquilized by their tv's, or something along that line. The Posse Comitatus law has been trashed(thanks Massa Boosh and unfortunately our current president) and modern weapons chew through protesters nightmarishly. Plutocracy? That's our story. Sadly.

We /they have not yet seen the world that will surly rise out of Corporate rule... When revolution comes it's never a choice, it is a natural necessity...it WILL come!

Fascism and corporate rule were deemed the same by Mussolini. My sincere hope is that our President will accentuate the positive, especially in getting us out of the two wars that we can't afford in so many ways in Asia. May the Nobel Peace Prize spur him into the right course of action!

Additional troops for the Afghan nightmare of our own making. I wonder if it would make a diff if Obama had worn a uniform for a few years? Probably not. Ugh, we're boned.

It looks like the award of the Nobel to our leader on spec was a mistake. Nay say France all you like but they do do some things better than we do. Their government is afraid of the public. We're afraid of our gummint. Wrong end of the stick.

Join the Green Party? Realistically, all you can do is live your life the best way possible. Sobering, that.

So grab a bottle and waste yourself? No, not. BTDT, too many times. Twenty years of sobriety. See, anything is possible!

Ironically, alcohol's illegal here and yet I'd tear someone's arms off to get at a cold beer right now. Mind you, the only thing Jubail has in common with Seattle is proximity to the sea...
