Sigh

I watched a clip from “The Crash” from PBS this morning and have been ruminating about where things are going with this crazy world. I couldn’t agree more with Megan’s post today (and LOVED the videos). There’s no point in worrying about it, we just need to do what we can to take care of ourselves, our own friends and families.

The bailout news everyday makes me sick to my stomach, “The Crash” explains it perfectly, although he takes 30 minutes to do what he could in 5 and is self-important about it, but the bailouts are just so wrong. We are trying to prop up a way of life that was unsustainable on so many levels.

I don’t regret my support of Obama, I guess I felt like if the plane’s going down I wanted the pilot to be calm, a good communicator, intellectually engaged, well-read and open to many options. But in the face of what we’re dealing with, the policies of the left are just as destructive in different ways as the policies of the right, and I get almost as angry and frustrated reading the paper as I did before, but I guess my vote helped pay for that “almost.” I guess we just got to choose which brand of bad choices would lead us down the toilet.

Sorry to be so negative about it–if you are still looking on the sunny side and seeing stocks as nothing but bargains right now, please go read another blog with my blessing. 🙂

Well, at least we can still have our sense of humor about it. I stole this relevant video (also from Megan’s blog), laughed myself silly every time I watched it.

    Hi Valerie! I loved the clip from Conan O’Brien so thanks for passing it along. Oh, and that old bailout thing, well I just figure it was an inevitable outcome considering the nature our government’s reaction to our generation. The blame can be shared by everyone. I hope we can get together some time. In the meantime, I always enjoy your updates.
