It appears there’s no stopping this runaway train! Our economy is a giant ponzi scheme and the word from the top is “It’s unstoppable, there’s no turning back and we’re gonna ride it to the end.”
This morning I read the following statement in the New York Times:
The Federal Reserve chairman, Ben S. Bernanke, [...]
I hate to say that things haven’t changed much since the Democrats got back in office. We still have Afghanistan, Iraq, GMO’s, the Patriot Act, Guantanamo and mountaintop removal. Oil, Coal, and Big Ag are still heavily subsidized. The small farmers are struggling, the renewable energy sector is hanging on by their fingernails, the middle [...]

What President Obama proposed today is nothing more than outright sustained murder for profit. Seven more years of destruction to bankrupt the common man and profit the war industry!
Out of respect for my many friends who campaigned [...]
Last night I dreamed that Obama came to our neck of the woods. He was seated at a row of tables with a lot of other notables in a large room. Across the room was another row of tables behind which people from around were seated.
I was walking around the room, chit chatting [...]
Like many, I’m breathing easier today. Despite my naturally cynical nature, I’m hopeful that Obama can begin to turn things around. While my rabid liberal side wants an immediate end to war and health care for all, my experience with horse training tells me I need to settle for small steps in the right direction.
