Greed Is Good?

The headline in the New York Times says it all

Wal-Mart Employee Trampled to Death

What a shameful day for this country
And its deluded people…

We are now all diminished in the eyes of morality
So eager for bargains as to be willing to kill for them

On crappy merchandise no one needs
I like a good deal as much as anyone, but I’m not about to stand outside a Wal-Mart all night
And I’m not about to take part in a mob mentality just to save a few hundred dollars

Look close America
Don’t you DARE look away
This is blood on your hands
And feet

Shame on you all
Especially you Wal-Mart
For planting the seeds of GREED
That has now grown to MURDER
By a MOB of mentally ill bargain hunters

Yes I said mentally Ill
Greed is a sickness
It breeds jealousy, hate
And Malcontent
Americans are infected with it

And I fear it may be terminal

The Sky Is Falling

Someone give me
Twenty Billion Dollars
To make America strong!

Thank You

Thank you America
For having the nerve
To believe in hope
Once again
And electing Barak Obama
To the presidency


Thank You

Just askin

Did anyone else
Feel embarassed...
For this country
Just a little
When Sara Palin *winked* at the camera
Almost as if she were inviting
The husbands of America
To cheat on thier wives

Maverick

Trickle down economy?
Looks like it has trickled UP to me

And flown right out the window

And now I suppose you want me to pay for it
And my children too
And my Grandchildren too
And my great grand children too...
...
...

I'm sorry Ronald Regan
But the curtain has fallen
And you have no cloths
You never did
It was all "backstage wardrobe"
You were just a naked old fool.

I'm not really "for" wasteful government
However

Handing all of the money over to the richest people, because they presumably know what best to do with it, doesn’t seem to be working.

So yes

Seeing that we have a population of over 300,000,000 people
In fifty states and a handful of possessions
That we have a ten trillion dollar economy
We are trying to interface with a number of complex emerging foreign economies
And act as the primary defense of the “free” world...

It’s a big county
With big problems

Yes
I want a big government

Not an inefficient one

But one with the scope and depth, necessary to protect our rights and see to our collective interests.

Let us be clear on this
Deregulation, for the most part
Has NOT worked.

I’m sorry too, John McCain
You were the deregulation maverick guru
And now you want to “rein in” the corruption on Wall Street?
ROTFLMAOCOPTER!
(as my son would say)

I’m asking all, of my fellow Americans
To join me In becoming more active in government
WE are the people
The government is supposed to be
Of the people, for the people and by the people
U.S. = Us

“Decisions are made By those who show up”

The Cost

Greed
It’s all about greed
Over need

Us and them
Me and you
Have you any clue

What the actual cost
Of your lifestyle
Is, in human terms?

I bring it up at parties
And people get very uncomfortable

Question

Spotted Owls
Elephants
Eagles
Polar Bears

I'm no longer a follower of any religion anymore.

Oddly enough, the more distance I have put between myself and organized religion, the more spiritual I have become.

That being said, I would like to ask the Christian followers, especially the hard core fundamentalists just one question:

If it doesn't matter, and life on Earth other than man is expendable, inconsequential... manifest destiny if you will

Then just what was the purpose of NOAH and THE ARK?

I am Noah
So are you
As are we all

The stewardship of the Earth/Ark has been passed down to us
Please let us not screw it up

If you can believe in Noah
Then believe that God has a plan for the Polar Bears
