There are lots of very complicated conditions and reactions that we could blame for the current state of things in the U.S. I've chosen to narrow it down to a few:

Corporate greed (Exxon posted 40 Billion dollars in profits).

A corrupt and short sighted government.

A society raised to be coddled mindless consumers. (I am the poster child for this one)

I think what we are experiencing is a major financial and enviromental *correction* after generations of neglect and abuse. I believe it will get worse before it gets better....but I do believe it will get better.
It has an awful lot to do with how "we the people" respond to this "warning shot"

These statements are mine and mine alone. This is of course all IMHO. If anyone feels accused, assaulted, afraid, attacked, alarmed, assailed, amused, aghast, put down, put out, put upon, put asunder, put away, disrespected, disregarded, disturbed, disenfranchised, unhappy, unnerved, unloved, untoward, unemployed, unclean, unsavory, or is just plain offended by anything I have said here, I am truly, sorry. I hope that covers it.... wonder I seldom post any more.

Peace Out
