|Coming Sooner or Later (movie poster treatment by Kat Garcia)|
What is the point of writing anything, since the waves are crashing and the tide is turning and the ship is sinking and we are all DOOMED!?!
The New York Times was reporting that all the congress people are going to "huddle" with Obama but five minutes later the huddle fest was apparently off. Wall Street is bearing down on Pennsylvania Avenue. Ouch! Sounds like some real contractions in the economy, what with the GDP shrinkage and all. The Senators are yakking it up over Catfood Commission Two, which from all indications will be the fifth branch of government empowered to pass bills/cut "entitlements" in secret, without debate and best of all, without C-Span, once some unknown trigger is pulled. It is all quite mysterious and something we won't know for sure until it's a done deal done in a back room. But we're not going to like it.
In case you were wondering, the fourth branch of government is Standard & Poors, that reputable credit rating agency that gave the big A-OK to toxic subprime mortgage-backed securities. S&P is vowing to lower the national credit score unless old people are forced to stop selfishly eating and seeking medical attention. Oh no! Another subprime interest rate mess. Wall Street is now dancing on Pennsylvania Avenue's butt.
I have had enough. I am going to cheer myself up now and watch my "Grapes of Wrath" DVD from Netflix.
Update 10:45 p.m. The huddle cuddle muddle is back on at the White House. Dear Leader O told all the senators to wind it down for the night, so everybody go to bed while they negotiate in secret. And that goes for you, peasants!
