Anyone who knows me can vouch for the fact that I'll sometimes point out the obvious, but I also think I see things from a different perspective than others.
Does that make me a "conspiracy theorist"?
Oh, I don't know, but it sure puts me in the realm.
Lsst night I was privileged to see an interview with the President of The People's Republic of China, Hu Jintao, and listened carefully to what he had to say regarding the USA.
Here's the transcript, if you'd care to read it: http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0809/28/fzgps.01.html
There may also be a video link, but only highlights.
He wasn't all that critical of America, but you could read his "concern" that if we bite the big one, it's going to affect the entire planet.
So that made me think (Thank GOD, I can still think clearly enough to form coherent sentences!):
Our infrastructure (all parts of it) is quickly going to hell in a handbasket.
I heard on the news that the national debt had been understimated: 9 trillion, instead of 7 (and some say it's as high as 10T). But what's a few more trills, right?
And just what nation owns most of that?
If you guessed China, you win the kewpie doll!
Communist *cough* China.
Japan runs second at 711.8 B's.
(These figures are from June 2009, by the way. They may have changed a tad since then!
"And that brings us back to....... DOUGH!" (NOT the "deer" kind!)
In my humble opinion, our government is trying to blow rainbows up our asses, as our beloved nation implodes.
It cannot pay its peoples' Social *cough* Security as it ought to, its banks are continuing to fail, it's printing worthless paper backed up by nothing, and now it's trying to fix health care?
The damn thing's over a thousand pages long, and no one even knows what it says!
Wer'e chasing our own damn tail (or we're like the picture of that snake eating itself!)
Our kids are fighting a losing war in Afghanistan and we're re-deploying them and harming their physical and mental health in the process, and for what?
This war is the 21st Century's "Viet Nam", dammit! We can't win it, so let's not repeat that mistake.
Oh really? They're thinking of sending even more over there?
Why am I not surprised?
And while our leaders are bickering back and forth across the aisle with all their attention focused on fighting with each other, who do you think's just "chompin' at the bit" waiting on us to lose our "attention span"?
Can you say "Al-Queda"?
I knew you could.
Okay, I admit I'm a political "junkie" these days.
Didn't used to be, though.
Used to just love takin' care of sick folks and makin' them better, but as the old saying goes "I'm a victim of coicumstance!", and I've been thrust into the arena of fighting for my financial, mental and physical life, so I'm watchin' 'em like a hawk these days.
Can't forget about our four-legged friends though:
They don't understand that we're pulling their world out from under them.
Thanks, as always, for reading!
