“It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into”

Jonathan Swift

"The city is crowded my friends are away and I'm on my own
It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

The greatest thing on the news today was the fact that Michele Bachmann fought for one of the most important things needed in our country - she introduced The Lightbulb Freedom of Choice ACT!

Some things I ponder.

Where are the jobs the rethugs said would be here as long as we don't ask the very wealthy to contribute more to the country's income by minimally raising their taxes? The rethug party leaders say the "job creators" will spend their income creating jobs with their money - and this has gone on since the Bush tax cuts went into effect years ago, and reaffirmed last December and in the recent debt ceiling drama. WHERE ARE THE JOBS?

Why does Standard and Poors have any credibility at all? After rating Enron AAA up to the day it crashed, missing the subprime mortgage fiasco that ruined our economy, keeping Lehman Brothers highly rated until it folded, having a 2 trillion dollar error when figuring the fed rating -I DON'T UNDERSTAND!

Why has it been impossible for decades for a single wage earner , male or female to support his or her family, at least modestly, as it was when I was a kid? Why can't one breadwinner earn a comfortable income that would allow a nice middle income life for the family? WHAT HAPPENED AND WHO IS RESPONSIBLE

Paid Vacation

Wouldn't it be nice if all the millions of unemployed in our country could take a month long, salary paid vacation like the U.S. Congress ins taking in August?
