Giving Sardonic Comments A Rest

What a day! The sun was shining and the waves at Ventura Point were perfect! Got out on the waves for the first time in ages and picked up a mellow humm from the experience. The world situation has been just a little too bit heavy lately and I needed a break. Usually walking the dogs takes the edge off, but being in the moment with the centering required from riding little three to four footers off the point really cleared my mind and put a grin on this previously worried face. Things are somewhat grim, but so what? I can do what I can do and no more.

Democrats sidestepping morality?

Democrats are so lucky! From what we’ve seen lately, democrats don’t have the added scrutiny of morality to thwart their focus from the prize. Republicans regularly choose to step down from posts of leadership when under fire, while democrats brush off the significance of immoral acts with pseudo eloquent brevity: Could it just be a tip of the iceberg, and therefore relatively insignificant? There is not a level playing field.

The level of corruption seen in the voter fraud activity of ACORN is being downplayed with subtle vengeance, owing to the necessity to keep the true extent under wraps. There is no question one party has benefited from ACORN more than another. A senate subcommittee hearing has NOT been called, and, since the litmus test of Democratic involvement is silence rather than outrage under these circumstances, democrats are obviously benefiting, The American public has a right to know the full extent of the damage funded by tax dollars, but we have a quandary here, since Republicans distance themselves from the sense of entitlement necessary to insist on a subcommittee hearing.

Now is the time to take off the mittens of political correctness the democrats use to trap and stiffle their adversaries!

That sinking feeling...

To pull out of mutual funds into bonds or not? That is the question. Something needed to be done, but 150 billion in pork just to sweeten the deal? And sweeten it for the high level perpetrators???!!! With NumbersUSA I was starting to feel like I had just the slightest effect on my reps in Washington and now this! I used to have some respect for Bush, but it will only be in retrospect what clear choicez would have been appropriate under these impossible circumstances.

My greatest fear is that the dollar will lose it's prominance in world markets. If that were to happen, the cascade of troubles here at home would have a very viscous, syrupy layer of dismay. As long as the dollar remains the standard and our relatively free markets keep the layered flexibility intrinsic to our system we just might be able to stave off disaster! I will try to think of the bailout as a tool to stimulate liquidity and not evidence of a creeping socialism making inroads into our fragile society.

But then, again, there's nothing like a good crisis such as this to possibly rattle the frog savers loose long enough to realize that we can generate massive wealth in this country quickly if we were to dive after our oil here. I would be totally in favor of keeping the massive transfer of wealth here at home instead of it going to OPEC where many want to use our schools for their childrens' educations, suck up as much of our wealth as possible, then kill us! I've heard of save the whale. What happened to save the human from infinite stupidity?
