It is any wonder that the world has
such a warp sense of who we are.
They take from our television. Some
from shows that they think that is how
life is. But even the news is warped from
how we are.
Right now we have the chicken little of
the sky is falling. And yes, I do believe
that Wall Street is in trouble and it will
not tickle down to us like the economy
does, but it will flow down.. But at what
We have people talking about how it
will be just like the Great Depression.
That people will be without homes,
and without food. There won't be money
for unemployment, because there will
be so many on it.
Yet we read in the paper of how the
courts granted a 4 million dollar suit
that two people will collect for a car
accident. They won over 2 million
from the car driver and the employer
of that driver. And are insisting on
collecting almost 2 million from the
Seattle Police dept. because their
officer was chasing the driver of the
car. Which opens a whole new can
of worms on car chases and lawsuits.
We also have winners of a great deal of
money in one of the lotteries saying this
is too much money for us.. and we plan
on giving some of it away. (that ought to
bring out every person they ever knew and
every charity and etc.)
We have an organization giving away
hundreds of thousands of dollars to two
charities. And Warren Buffet buying
stock in one of the Wall Street Company
at the tune of 5 billion dollars.
Then there are the actors and the athletics
who demand and get millions of dollars...
All of this while we are saying we are
going to be ruined. Which makes some
wonder...just who is getting ruined? There
are stores, restaurants closing their doors
due to the Wall Street mess. How can that
be? Are they fortune tellers? They are on
the West coast and the true mess isn't
quite here. Yes, WaMu is in trouble but
not the people who had their savings and
checking accounts there. It was the stock
holders who lost their money. Were they
the only ones who were going to those
stores? Restaurants? Or were they in
trouble themselves, and Wall Street is a
good reason to bail now?
But as millions are still flowing around the
country with groups still giving it away to
charities, actors and alike still getting theirs,
Lotteries still enticing people to buy the
brass ring for hundreds of million... isn't
that kind of a warped sense of money?
Or is this the mentality of the 30's.
The rich get richer, the poor have more
children? Is the Congress bailing out the
rich? That is suppose to trickle down to
the ones who bought when they knew intheir hearts they couldn't afford?
