Lemme Ask You

Say the country you live in is in an economic slump. No telling how long it will last--all the Republican chickens (spending billions overseas and nothing at home, deregulating our financial system, etc.) are coming home to roost.

Sour grapes and the determination to keep doing the wrong thing until it works have various stimulus and bailout plans roadblocked.

Say the company you work for has just announced yet another pay cut - and this one puts you in danger of having to choose between, say, gasoline & paying your car insurance and eating on a regular basis.

What would you do?

Weep?

At least.

Things would be flung, as well.

I'll admit that flinging had not occurred to me.

I think the first thing I would do is stop pretending it's those evil Republicans. Democrats didn't stand up. Over and over. Both parties have betrayed the American people.

Anglachel says it all. People need to pay attention.

If you've done much reading about Republican tactics and Bush/Cheney strategies over the last eight years, you might feel that there was very little a minority congressional party could do.

But maybe they could have tried harder? No, Martha, Democrats didn't stand up. It's a pity this country doesn't have a liberal party, that's all.
