Economic Reaction

In my post of September 20, "A Small Proposal," I spoke of my reaction to our current economic crisis. Since then, I’ve come across a wonderful work in verse by Gayle, dealing with the same topic. She has given me permission to have you come by and read her words. I found them quite moving, and I suspect you will do the same. Below is the link to her site. Be well.
Hope you all were able to enjoy this beautiful weekend.

    we are in lots and lots of trouble that is for sure.. there was this lady who called in at a new program.. her idea for a good fix to the problem was this.she said .." according to the US census.. rather than bail them out.. the government could give all of us 750,000.00 that way we all could pay off our morgages  our car loans.. and still have enough money left over to buy some needed "stuff" that way it would help all of our economic mess we find ourselves in.. I tend to agree with her.. but then we are talking about our government.. so that is totaly out of the question.. I mean why help the people when you can help the big companies.. what really pisses me off about all of this. that most of the notes belong to overseas.. like China and Japan..oh yea.. this is going to fun..anyway. hope you have been well..and are enjoying the beautiful weather while its around..hugs

    Hi  Jorge,
    How could everything get so completely messed up in just a few short years?  Thanks for this link.  I took a look.  My concern is that people will continue to vote based on what – things that are totally irrelevant.
    I hope your day is going well.
