I have no idea where this is going. I’m just trying to make sense of all the bad news being thrown at us everywhere you turn. TV, radio, Internet, newspapers and everyone you talk to. The sky’s falling and the country’s going down the toilet. Harley’s cutting jobs. Caterpillar cutting 20,000 jobs. One of my best customers, that until last year had 42 employees and did 1.5 million a year with us, now has 9 employees, and is 120 days past due on $80,000. Small, medium and large companies going under every day. 500,000 jobs being cut every month. Sounds like the Soviet Union before they went ape shit. We have a bunch of people in DC who think they can fix everything. I’m not sure if any of them are economics professors or not, but I’m positive every one of them is a lawyer. And I’m pretty darn sure it’s the same bunch of dumb shits that got us in this to start with. I wouldn’t go drinking any of their kool-aid just yet. I don’t think any of them has a clue. Right now I think all those dummies in DC are running scared. Scared that if they don’t fix their screw-up, there’ll be armed rioters pulling them out of their plush offices, and beating the fucking shit out of them! With half a million jobs being lost a month, and IRA’s and 401K’s getting looted by corporate greed, I wonder just how long it’ll be before roving bands of very armed, very pissed off people start “visiting” corporate and government offices to get their pound of flesh. People are getting really pissed. What’s worse is people are getting scared. And scared people are very unpredictable. It wouldn’t take much for the shit to hit the fan. Just a small incident. Totally insignificant in itself. But enough to push people over the edge. DC would fall pretty quick. The Police and National Guard wouldn’t be able to stop it. Most police are getting screwed over just like everyone else. They might just join in. The National Guard? They did take an oath to protect this country from all enemies, foreign and “domestic”. Care to place a bet on how many citizens are starting to consider most of the DC scumbags domestic enemies? This could happen, it could not happen. Only time will tell. But at the rate that bad shit’s happening right now, shit, I aint got a clue either.
