40 Days until the ElectionSo today marks the beginning of a very important 40-day sadhana. . . . as our country chooses its next president, please remember: we get what we deserve--so deserve more! Ask more of yourself and of your country than lies and deceit, ask more of your country than ignorance and attachment to philosophies that are so bankrupt that they require another philosophy to cover their $700 Billion dollar belly-up. . .and still the wolves and the crow cry for 'freer, truer markets'.
The financial markets are man-made systems based on good faith, rolling credit, and trust in a future. . .none of which have anything to do with a 'free market' but instead represent a carefully calculated, managed, and massaged public perception of prosperity. The Republicans have been espousing a dead philosophy for more than 20years of my life. It began with Reagan's trickle-down theory--and why any true, blue-blooded laborer ever fell for that line of crap is beyond me, but that's a different question--and continued with Bush's 'war' economy. How an entire generation has forgotten the benefits of the New Deal and managed economies via Government spending on people and not WAR is beyond me, too. It's like mass amnesia, which they use to fuel mass ignorance and hysteria.
I don't think these banks deserve a bailout but I'm not an idiot. I understand that in some measure the government has to intervene or we'll have a Greater Depression, on an epic, world-scale, because these are not 'American Economies'--they are world economies.
Oh--and if you want your daughter (or yourself) to have the right to choose, and you want to have access to healthcare, and you'd like your son or daughter to come home from Iraq, you might think about those issues too in the coming days.
