Unlike Clara

Just a quick note - a question actually. I saw a few minutes ago the CEO of GM was asked to resign by the White House. And what about all those Wall Street Exec's? I also saw the White House wanted to make veterans pay for their health care. The same folks who are now sending thousands more troops into Afghanistan. First Oprah and then David Letterman. Huh? WTF?? I am disgusted! Are you?

A Mixed Bag

First: Glad you are back Clara... I hope your well deserved time away was fantastic.

Second: I really really wish that the so called forth estate would actually do critical reporting, rather than regurgitate more idiotic, inflammatory rhetoric disguised as information.

Senator Chuck Grassley from Iowa has been in the Senate since 1980, and he wants people to commit suicide. Think about that for a second. He has been around since before this mess even got started. He was a relatively senior guy when our SEC truly got in bed with corporations and did nothing. During his oversight the fecal matter hit the oscillating blades, during his oversight Martha Stewart was thrown in jail for a $50,000 stock sale. He has the nerve to suggest suicide for people rather than actually calmly lay out the facts of the situation. Maybe it shouldn't have happened that AIG delivered bonuses. However, I bet they knew before they did it, that it would result in negative press, and I bet they care. So maybe it needed to be done. There are pretty good arguments for that case.

I am embarrassed for his constituents. I am disappointed in our fourth estate, and actually I think Jon Stewart may have said it best in his discussion with Jim Cramer. Please, Please do your flipping job.

A New Post

Geesh! Has it really been a month since either Keith or I posted anything? What kind of blog is this? Aren't we delinquent! Sorry folks but life sometimes calls and too many other things take precedence. I've also been on a wonderful vacation, wandered around new places, enjoyed warm weather, sunny beaches, and. . . . best of all . . .I relaxed! What a concept! WooHoo, I loved it!

I have many new experiences to write about. Several posts are floating around in my head, clamoring to be written, however, once again life calls and I find myself challenged to find time to put them into words. Some time soon I will have a new story up, but for the meantime, I simply wanted to say "hello" and let you know I was thinking of you!
