One reason why I started this blog was to be able to call a spade a spade and not have to worry (at least for now) about censorship…this morning as I got going about the business of taking care of the business of the day I did as I usually do…turned on the news, CNN…and was assaulted by the worst fluff I have seen on CNN in a long, long time…’most noteworthy’ (at least according to CNN) was the coverage of the Casey Anthony hearing (took up hours of their time) and then maybe 30 seconds about the fact that Obama is meeting on the debt crisis…then back to Casey again. Sigh…can I have some real news please? I mean, reality isn’t Casey Anthony and it while it certainly extremely sad that a little girl died (I have 5 kids myself and couldn’t imagine loosing one of them) do we have to cover it ad nauseum when the world is collapsing around us? Oh, that’s right, according to ‘the administration’ that governs our great country we are out of the recession (uh huh..yeah, right maybe the uber rich are but the common man isn’t and infact its getting deeper) and the reality is that our country is beyond repaying its debts (but that isn’t true is it? heck, we will just print more money and presto! we will be okay! wink, wink, nod, nod) so the ‘debt crisis’ meeting today on the Hill is really just to figure out how rework our budget and keep the economy going (as the ship sinks and we borrow more money just to pay the interest we owe)…sigh…yep, Casey Anthony wins hands down, much more important to keep us focused on this rather than an inconvient truth that the housing collapse was just the beginning of the decent into economic hell…give them circuses and let them eat cake…and ignore the pile of crap that is just beginning to spray outwards…yep…much more important…and btw, she gets out next Thursday sigh…the next circus…think I will keep the cable off that day and focus on figuring out how I will be getting out of debt myself…
