What Happened to America?

Does anybody know what they're doing anymore?

I mean, come on.. look around.

These past couple of months have exposed Wall St. and America for what they really are... greedy pigs.

I'm not saying all Americans are greedy, clearly, but this mess we are in now just shows how little judgement and intuition the people running our economy possess.

With banks running out of money and Wall St. folding, more and more money is being 'borrowed' to help 'fix' the problem. Or just patch it up so it will hold long enough for Bush to scurry out of office in a few months and leave the burden to whoever takes his place. You can't put a band-aid on a broken leg.

One trillion dollars to get things in order they think. Think about that number for a minute before you continue reading. 1,000,000,000,000. In a country that is dishing out 10 billion/month on a war in Iraq. Think about all of this money and what good it could actually do. No one is thinking long-term anymore.

I just think about these suits, these fat and greedy pigs walking up and down Wall St. thinking about their bonuses. All of these money hungry animals that have nothing else on the mind. People straight out of the movie, 'Boiler Room.'

People like Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, an ex-CEO of Goldman Sachs.

Who knows if we'll even get out of this mess.

John McCain suspends his campaign with just over a month left to go? What is he going to do? His presence won't fix this problem. He is way too out of touch to know how to fix a problem of this magnitude anyway.

He needs to be in Mississippi tonight to debate Barack Obama. He is just scared. He knows he can't go up against someone who has real values and decency. Someone who doesn't lie through his teeth constantly and someone who will act responsibly as our president. Obama will mop the floor with McCain at the debate... that is if McCain decides to grow a pair and shows up.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
