It's Not About The Tea

Do you think politicians miscalculated the people's anger? Even the ignorant have limits on how many times you can fool them.


Americans are getting serious. I think this link puts it all in perspective. It is mostly the lack of jobs that is bringing this about, increased by Internet communication. Take some time and watch that link a couple of times to get a grasp on what has evolved the past two years.

Last time I looked, Nevada wasn't considered a "Southern Redneck State."

The people need a good job.

This could be anywhere in the country right now. Probably 20,000 people have little to do within 20 miles of me in counties with 40,000 or so population.

I have been saying Rome wasn't built in a day and it won't fall in a day. LuAnn says you can dig a big hole fast but you have to get yourself out one shovelful at a time.
This has been evolving for some time. I know how the story ends in the Bible but I don't know how this story ends.

  1. Americans need JOBS? Surely you must jest. Don't you know that the economy is getting better?

    Actually, at my fundraising job, I'm hearing WAY more sad stories now than I did just one year ago. I guess this is the "change" we were promised!

  2. It's tough here Gorges and many, many places. People are hanging on and a little afraid of tomorrow.
