I can’t believe some of the stuff going on right now. Sure, the country is in bad straits, and sure, the economy stinks. But the country has been in bad straits for at least six to eight years and our shoveling money into the bottomless pit started when we invaded Iraq. Everybody seems to have forgotten the TARP, so what the hell is happening?
I got two screeds about the health care proposal today, not surprisingly, from conservative friends. Some of them seem to believe anything anybody says, so long as it’s against Obama and the liberals. I looked the stuff up on Snopes and found that the posting used some true and some false information to draw conclusions. Some of it was also down-right lies. Now, being a liberal, I have to wonder who sits around and dreams up this stuff? What’s their agenda?
I’m beginning to think the whole plan is to stir up the country, get everybody excited, and then they’ll steal the gold, so to speak. What I’m seeing is the old ‘watch this hand’ routine. I really think there’s some people who would love to have a coup here in this country. If they can get us all worked up or distracted enough, they’ll try it. Hey, they’ll even sell us the pitchforks and torches to use, just don’t expect them to be out front where the danger is.
Our economy is verging on third world class, I sure hope our politics won’t follow.
