It’s been such a boring day.
I got up around 10:00.
I made coffee.
I watched some TV.
I talked to my mom.
I grabbed a Diet Coke and went to the subway.
I rode the A train down to 14th street.
Got my new glasses readjusted so they fit my face better.
Bought some new underwear.
Bought a calendar.
Picked up my old glasses that I’d had prescription sunglass lenses put in.
Watched True Blood. (that’s another post in and of itself. Hot men. Vampires. Hot sex. What more could you want)
My bank went belly up.
I watched Project Run…
What the fuck.
My bank was taken over by the FDIC in the biggest bank failure in the history of the U.S. I hope my roommate cashes the rent check soon because the money may not be there by Monday. I don’t usually talk politics on here because I’m usually talking about me, which is a much more fun topic to discuss. As they say in the south, “Enough about me, let’s talk about my dress.”
But really? How much more fucked up can things get. The entire financial market is ruins. The Republican’s are more interested in winning the presidential election than actually trying to save the economy. I don’t know how to break it to them, but if we are all living in cardboard boxes down on the piers, ain’t no way anybody’s voting for them. Do we really want to shell out 700,000,000,000 (my calculator won’t even go that high) to the people who’ve spent all their own money and not want some sort of regulatory guidelines in place. Really? If the companies knew how to manage money we wouldn’t be in this mess in the first place. And do we really want to bail out companies whose executives make trillions of dollars a year but not give a break to the little people who are losing their homes. I know, I know, they shouldn’t have borrowed the money if the first place if they couldn’t afford to pay it back. But “The Man” shouldn’t have loaned the money if they knew the people they were loaning it to in the first place couldn’t pay it back. There’s a reason I don’t loan my relatives money. I give, they take. I never see it again. They should know better. They are paid to know better. And that’s just the economy.
The homeless man I pass on the way to work everyday would make a better vice president than she would. At least he understands the economy and how it effects the little people.
My roommate pointed out that the verdict is still out on whether she’s stupid or ignorant.
And I’m at a loss of words
You live next to Russia and you have foreign policy experience. I’ve been to Europe five times and I lived 30 minutes from Mexico and I live in a Dominican neighborhood and I see more foriegn people in ten minutes on the subway than Ms. Palin has seen in her whole life. So clearly I must have enough foriegn policy experience experience to be VP. And don’t forget I was employee of the month in January. That should count for something. And I have only attended four universities (she attended five) but I have two more degrees than she does so I’m definitely better educated. I am gay so that might be a problem but I was also baptized Southern Baptist and went to a Southern Baptist college so that might offset the gay thing. I’ve never had a news conference, but wait, neither has she. I wasn’t president of the PTA but I was the social secretary of my fraternity and president of the drama club so together I think that compares. I’ve never been a governor but from what I’ve seen on the news and in the four questions she actually took from reporters today, that might be an asset. Besides I met the governor of Kentucky before and that’s the same as being governor. Fuck, I met Jimmy Carter in 1983 so I’ve damn near be president all ready.
All kidding aside.
There are people who think she’s a good choice. I can understand people who support McCain. I don’t agree with them, but I can at least understand it.
But Sarah Palin?
She might be a MILF but I don’t think she should fuck the country. And from what the National Enquirer has to say she hasn’t been exactly faithful to her husband either.
And we haven’t even discussed every other fucked up thing that’s going on right now.
Now that my head hurts and I’m out of wind I think I’ll go to bed.
God Help Us.
