The Economy

20061211grays

I talk a lot about the big heady stuff, but relative light speeds and the square’s deceptive nature doesn’t seem to be bringin’ ’em in. I’m not mad, I get it, light never laid you off and the square didn’t take your home.

We live in a climate of no jobs, states so strapped for cash they can’t even afford white-out and then there’s the china-shopping bull that is health care reform. Interestingly, what divides us now is the same business we were fussing over during the Bush years.

The health care battle (when you break it down to it’s lowest common denominator) reduces just like the war opposition did, right down to this basic question: who should die and who shouldn’t? Throw out all of that business about taxes, socialism, oil, terrorism, revenge and you get the same nucleus. We get so riled up about this question because it is the ultimate question. We only KNOW this life. We can only WONDER about what comes next or what came before.

We love the green stuff because it can literally add years to the lives of our loved ones and ourselves insuring that you will never have to answer that question or in other words face the ultimate fear. Money literally buys life, that is the reason we desire it so much. The irony is that whenever we amass a substantial amount we lock ourselves away in gated communities on hills and purchase all sorts of extravagant items to make up for our lack of meaningful social interaction. In other words, the life money buys isn’t really a living.

At the bottom of this post you will find a couple of links to older posts that deal with the big E guy. Please feel free to chime in. I created this blog to get people thinking outside-of-the-box. You don’t have to jibe with what I’m saying. Matter of fact I don’t expect you to, but I know there are a lot of people out there brighter and much more knowledgeable than I who can help shed some light on these pressing issues. All right, I’m out!
