Well, here it is, folks. The Debt-Ceiling Crisis. And so, at the hands of all politicians, be it Repugicans or Democrass....the losers are--as always--us. But hey! They've got theirs. What else matters? If you get my point. It occurs to me that we no longer live in a DEMocracy. We live in a PLUtocracy. I remember my mom talking about the "plutocrats" as though they were a disease way back in the 40's when I was a toddler. And, you know what? She was right.
Definition of plutocracy via Wikipedia:
Plutocracy is rule by the wealthy, or power provided by wealth.
And then there's the "corporotacracy." Rule by corporations (who are now individuals, just like you and me according to our crooked Supreme Court)....oh, my. I said it!
See what hot weather does to one?!
Incubates bad feelings! You don't want to think about this too long. It's not good for your health!
Sickening, as it were. And all this White House show of in-good-faith "negotiating..." What theater! An award-winning puppet show, to be sure. Worthy of an Oscar. And do "they" think we don't have a brain? Well, if you think the "news" on Google represents the real concerns and issues of the day, perhaps you need to re-evaluate. Bread and circuses.
For example, tell me you're really waiting breathlessly every evening to learn "what the stock market did" for the day. Are you excited, waiting for the "news" of just how much the bankster profits increased for the day? In your search for reality, you might want to make a stop to visit Dorothy on the Yellow Brick Road:
Some of her friends are still looking for a brain. And where is the Wizard?
OTOH, if you want a little encouragement in overcoming your cynicism, sign up for the online Picks Of The Week from YES! Magazine. It will do your heart good to see that others have wonderful ideas for transforming our sick country back to vibrancy. Worth a look. And if you are motivated by their bright, sparkling ideas (I am!) send them a donation, roll up your sleeves, and begin rebuilding America. And BTW, where are the protest marches? Or are we just too busy...?
