In a sublime place




Howdy and good evening...this whole financial bailout business is just lovely now isn't it? You have these irresponsible people who run very large corporations whom millions and millions of peoples lives are dependent upon (at least partially). These people have completely and utterly disregarded millions of peoples trust by taking risks because of greed. And now we're supposed to bail them out...and if we don't we face financial ruin. What a quandry eh...well it's got me thinking about the average person and his/her obligation in this society...every person in this country should contribute to the economy in some way, shape or form...some do more than others and some just take away without ever giving back...
We are an over-indulgent nation....we want things we can't afford...we over-spend, over-eat, over-do most things...
Now, I love this country, it's not perfect, but it's better than any other place on this earth. Every person has every opportunity to get a good education and put it to use somewhere...as for those who say there are no jobs here open your mind, we do have a whole planet to roam around on correct? My whole point is you won't get a better chance at life being born any where else on earth, the opportunities are there, but one has to work for it and not many people want to do that. Everyone wants instant gratification...and what an easier way than credit...NOW NOW NOW!!!!
We are in a sad state of affairs and really all of us are to blame, myself included. Americans need to wake up....the time is now....quit blaming everyone else...start paying off your debt if you want to help get this country back on it's feet.....and quit bitching about the government...if you don't like it...get up and do something about it....sitting around and bitching about it does nothing.....*sighs*
That's my thought for the night....I hope this finds you safe and warm but not apathetic...be grateful for what you have and give back to society, it's everyone's obligation to make this country better....quit leaving it up to everyone else!

I totally agree. People need to remember that they voted these people into office.. and every decision made reflects what someone thought was a good idea during the election process.. that is why it is so important to be careful with your decisions.. educate yourselves about the people you plan to send to office.
