Not sure what to make of it….

Gentle reader, perhaps you can help:

I’m not sure what to make of it…

The continued kleptomania of the Federal Government, the ever downward spiral of the fiat currency that we use…the very fact that we in fact DO use unbacked paper promissory currency…

I don’t know what to make of the idea that the President elect is strongly populating his first cabinet with people that are essentially creatures of the Clinton camp, with their undoubted loyalty being to the afore named couple…

If the dead should talk

Silence!
The grave beckons
Eternal ubiquitous intelligence beatified in utter quietude
Is the dead really asleep or helplessly awake
A comfortable summation for the finite mind
Or a glaring opposite of the dead´s greatest wish.

Abode in godlike eternity, how they exist baffles me
All the dead of centuries past
At peace after mundane squabbles or engaged in wars unpublished?
Angry at discarded ancient adoration?
Vengeful at businesses unresolved?
Exciting mystery, death show thyself without me.

A Grecian gift pregnant with Eden´s forbidden fruit
Though choice, my choice wasn´t even solicited
Chorus decision, Cromwellian prison, chains and the stake
Silence, deathly silence hid my rage

The big three stooges

What are we to think of the Big Three automakers plea to Congress (and each of us) for a $25 billion bailout, euphemistically known as a bridge loan or rescue package?

During the disastrous trip to Washington by the auto companies’ three CEOs (stupidly arriving on private luxury jets), the three men were unable to say exactly how much they need and how it would be spent, provide assurance they wouldn’t be back in a few months demanding more money and, finally, explain why Americans won’t buy their products.

You don’t give your last tourniquet to a dead man, said one lawmaker. What is at the end of the bridge, another demanded. Why are Toyota’s U.S. operations able to sell its cars, and you can’t sell yours, another congressman asked.
