It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Am I the only one ...

Am I the only one out there who believes that we are well into another depression?

Banks failing. Homes being lost. Rampant unemployment.

And people want McCain to help continue this trend?

Borderline symptom of the day: scaredfreaked out

I may be a bit silly, but from where I'm standing (an ocean away), you're not actually in the depression *yet*... It may be foolish optimism, but I think the economy may yet have a chance to recover from the seemingly bottomless pit, given some competent financial control. But if the US falls off the edge entirely, I worry for the world - too many countries are dependent on the US economy...

It looks like a duck, it quacks like a duck, but they want to call it a turkey. I would say more a really nasty recession.

I just hope and pray that the Bush Plan is not continued for another 4 years. I fear it would destroy this country.

I thought we were already in one >:

There are economists out there that argue that the U.S. has been bankrupt for a few years now, and the administration is just hoping that nobody has noticed.

Nah. It's more important they protect the sanctity of marriage so them gays can't desecrate stuff. Also remember the crazy fringe that actually want to bring about the rapture and Palin will be their best shot at that.

Oy. Yeah.

Heaven forbid, we can't have them thar homos marryin'.. that's SO much more important than the economy, the war, personal freedoms...

Meh. Fuckers!

Actually, I think "fuckers" is exactly what these 'publicans aren't; those folks need to get laid!

...except the ones secretly trying to have gay sex in airport bathrooms, I mean.

Well yeah, correct on both points. :D

And yet, ironically, I'm the happiest I've been in quite some time! :)


I've been talking up the need for a NEW New Deal for quite some time now, and saw this coming. Not all of the bubbles have even burst yet. The housing bubble's collapse certainly hasn't finished wreaking its damage, and a "Web 2.0" bubble-let was also well underway before the stock market took its plunge. Have to see how that plays out.

Let's just hope Obama gets in there and pulls an FDR on us (who, lest we forget our history, was actually considered middle-of-the-road and a bit of a lightweight and dilettante during the '32 campaign).
