Been reading the NYTs…and it’s DEPRESSING

August 10, 2009

First, Is Obama Punking Us? The man needs to get something done on Healthcare, and he needs to get the fingers of the effing insurance coporations OUT of that pie – as they are a HUGE part of the problem.  Kthanx…get it done. Think this comes from Jane too…or Fran…can’t remember right now.

Next, Is it a Crime to be poor? Apparently, yes, yes it is.  You know, we just don’t want to see poor people, because it makes us feel bad, and they are shifty, especially if they are minorities!  All the while the economic conditions are making more and more of them! So, let’s do smart shit like arrest HOMELESS people for being HOMELESS. DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUH. Breaks my heart AND pisses me off all at once. h/t to Jane R. of Acts of Hope Fame, via Facebook.

Here is some more food for thought from Krugman on the current economic situation in Averting the Worst.  He’s good for refocusing me, and I thought perhaps he’d be good for you too.

    I take a break from the news every few days. It’s the only way I can maintain any sense of sanity. So much crap is being done to others, usually justified by the Bible, that it makes me want to hurt someone physically. I can’t hurt them intellectually or emotionally as they have no intellect and are so emotionally constipated that neither reason nor love can penetrate. DirecTV Channels 801 – 803 are my great escape.
