Same old rant

Thought I had a cold on Wednesday. Turned out to be either a bad cold or minor flu. Didn't go to work yesterday. Had chills and fever. Didn't get out of bed till 1 PM. Phone rings. Been laid off. Not because of calling in, but because its the 'slow' season Made $2B in loans for the company since last summer and they act like they are going under. Heard CFO is building his own golf course. How nice.

I have no clue as to what might happen to me next month, if I can keep a roof over my head, or how long it will take to find another. Eight years of Republican rule have reduced this country to an economic wasteland.

Fifty million Americans without health care, but condos at apartments at Boston's Mandarin Oriental run at $12,000 a month and there are few vacancies. In the New York Times a few weeks back, it mentioned someone who bought TWO condos a the Waldorf Astoria one for $7M and the other (for the children) at $11M. Kanye West once said "George Bush hates Black People". Actually, I think he hates anyone with an income less than $10M.

In the last post, I mentioned the Verizon Spying Law -- and the GOP kept arguing that our security was at risk if it failed to pass -- well it passed yesterday, but without the Corporate Immunity -- and Bush either ahs vetoed it or is planning to -- shows that he is more interested in being cozy to big corporations rather than national security.
