Feeling the growl again

    I don't even know who you guys are anymore. 

     

    JeffV2 and spanielV2, perhaps?

      Here are some problems we face right now:

      1) The economic crisis caused by the banks and the housing market (among other factors.)

      2) Decreasing social mobility and a shrinking middle class.

      3) The debt.

      4) Big $$ corrupting the democratic process.

      5) Lack of trust in each other, in the government, in America.

      6) Terrorism. (not as big a problem as it used to be, thanks to former and present administrations.)

      7) Increasing concentrations of wealth and power in the hands of the few--plutocracy of career politicians and vested interests.

      8) Crumbling infrastructure.

      9) Outsourcing of jobs.

      10) Global warming.

      11) Rising health care costs.

      12) Unemployment.

      13) Energy.

       

      That's a pretty clear and concise rundown of what we could/should be working on, in my opinion.

        Thought this was a nice little piece; I heard it on the radio on Friday. It's better listened to than read. (Yes, it is NPR.) It's hard to remember sometimes that America that's not captured by the CNN crawl.

         

        "...when we couldn't take the boring highway that unrolled like the crawl on CNN for thousands of dull infinities, we took the smaller roads in the interior of the United States of Amnesia and found many forgotten Americas; some forgotten already one hundred years ago, some forgotten 50 years ago, some forgotten five years ago, some just forgotten. ..."

          Politics are played between the 40s all right, but primaries appear to be all about the red zone.

            just a simple cat

              I think 'promise the moon' is just Gingrich

               

              Running is stupid

                I laughed.

                   One of these days, Alice!

                  Janie, today I quit my job. And then I told my boss to go f*** himself, and then I blackmailed him for almost sixty thousand dollars. Pass the asparagus.
