...and the screw job is 2/3rds complete with a 100% chance the final third will commence shafting with the stroke of a pen as Bush is certain to approve it.


Wasn't free market capitalism fun, kids? Speaking of which, anybody know a good way to tell two toddlers their economic futures have been sold to the highest bidder?

Who is going to bail out the federal government?

Are they just going to start printing more money? That will drive up inflation and make the dollar devalued against other currencies?

Raising more money through taxes is going to be necessary to fund the government. I feel sorry for the next president. Their going to inherit such a mess.

At least this time that bill giving $20 to bicycle commuters each month they commute was in there. While the world crumbles and we all start calling each other comrade I'll keep staring at that $20 bill I got for riding my bike and repeating "soon enough I'll die, thank god" over and over.

What an awful way to end the week.

Feel sorry for THEM? LOL! Who's going to feel sorry for we the people and we the people's children? Besides, both Obama & McCain were implicitly involved in both creating the original mess and in pushing this screw job "solution" down our throats. I don't feel sorry for them, I loathe them.
