Barack Obama, economy, GOP, John McCain, Tim Geithner, Wall Street
Okay, so call me naive, stupid, or wildly lost in the clouds. But this shit is starting to get really scary. And worse yet, I’m not feeling very secure that anybody knows what is going on or what to do about it.
The President’s financial guru, Tim Geithner, reputed to be the answer to everyone’s prayers, laid a big fat egg yesterday according to just about everyone.
Sadly, the President seems to talk more of fear than hope. Even I have to admit that.
The Republicans whom you might have thought would be cowering in the corner, hoping people would not remember that for the past bazillion years, minus two they have been in firm charge of the economy, and would thus nod furiously at any bill the Democrats put forth, and vote for it, are strutting around like shit don’t land on them.
Trek around the insane world of public online forums, and people who have zero expertise on anything and even less than zero on matters economic, claim the whole thing is the evil machinations of Barney Franks, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid. Worse, they claim that the dearly departed big brain Bush warned that this would happen “years” ago but nobody listened.
Rush Limbaugh is now the king of Republican land, where his every twitch is listened to with bated breath by his followers who are all on a smoke break from their highly intellectual jobs as insurance adjusters.
I think I’ve fallen into a black hole and am doomed to listen to John Boehner for all eternity. Obama has got this all wrong, has he never heard of tax breaks for the rich? That’s what is needed. And jobs, not work you fool. Don’t you know the difference? McCain rants on, though where he gets the nerve, I don’t know, and Lindsay Graham continues to peek out of John’s ass with his sign, “You should have voted for him!”
It’s all too much to bear, so after spending forty-five minutes reading one depressing post after another, I’ve come to realize that I’m in a loop that can only be broken from utter frivolity. So do yourself a favor and stop reading this crap, and visit all these wonderful sites:

Go visit Randal’s blog. Because, he’s smarter than I am by a mile. I seldom understand his posts. I enjoy them anyway, and so will you.
Or go over and get some inspiration at Five String Guitar. You know you need it, and I promise you’ll feel better after you read David’s thoughts.
That should keep ya busy for a while, and keep your mind off the ugly news. If you run across my earth planet anywhere, let me know. This black hole is stretching my brain to the max and I don’t see a truffle in sight!
