Bob, do you see how the banks control us? Even without the recent debacle of handing over yet another way to strangle us. Banks include Wall St. in my book.
If it is all about money, and I think it is, then it matters not who you vote for. Not much anyway. Sure, you can argue that global warming might be better calmed under Obama’s reign, or that the unemployed might get a better break with Obama. But overall, Obama is subservient to the bankers.
I am sure even Bush walked into his Presidency and the first thing he said was “What the fuck?” He knew he was not as powerful as he thought he might be. Or perhaps his father, whose real power is in money, taught him that before little Bush took over. Do you see how continuted warmaking fits the desires of the bankers?
I am sure Obama is saying WTF too. He does what he thinks the Republicans want and not a single one of those shitheads even smiled during the speech. Have you ever seen a meaner bunch of angry white men in your life. If that is who you choose to pal around with, it’s your call. I wouldn’t be caught dead in a horse stall with any of them.
I am beginning to wonder if the whole meltdown thing is a conspiracy. And you know me, I hate conspiracy theories. But please tell me how the banks can now say they don’t need the money and why almost noone has had a mortgage rework the way it was enfivioned?
But why do we waste our time talking about it? Does it make you feel better to do so? What good comes from discussing the banks since you will certainly oppose what I think anyway?
You want to talk about the dull stuff. You fear the collapse of capitalism. That tells me there is something going on in your life that makes you fear it. What is that? I’ll tell you why I fear it. nate is moving to Florida because he can’t find a job that pays more than $10 an hour here. He came off a job where he was earning $70,000 a year ago. Little Katy, who graduated in 2008 and who has her mother’s resourcefulness and persistence, was recently “let go” and is collecting unemployment. She, too, cannot find a job. Her boyfriend, a very intelligent and resourceful fellow, lost his job a couple of years ago as an airplane mechanic. He also cannot find a job. Noah and Chrissie’s incomes have declined significantly in the restaurant field.
And you blame Obama for their job hunting problems? Gimme a break.
I’d rather talk about the book you are reading about Andrew Jackson. His home life was quite interesting. Especially his relationship with his wife.
