From the fast and the furious to the slow and placid
Not a whole lot going on but yet another revolution around the sun in our ever continuing saga of how the stomach turns. and for your amusement, or not, we have congress who , with nothing better to do trying to harass our judicial branch. Much like the bullies on the school yard with a lesser opinion of themselves and unable to lead they pick on the lesser. The new Rethuglicons work that way. Is this merely pandering to ignorance? A mild distraction when you know your plan is something that won't work. Sorry guys we've been down this road before it's filled with potholes and lined with abandoned foreclosed houses.
In other useless news we find Hosni Mubarak on deaths' bed. Must ask does that really matter in the grand scheme of things? Yet another distraction in a long line of distractions for those with too much time on their hands. What no more Elvis sightings?
On a tech level Micro Flaccid comes in yet again with it's latest incarnation of a tablet computer. Darn guys haven't you learned anything after that Zune thingy you tried to foist on the tech heads. Nothing like getting lapped by the competition when you showed up to the race 5 minutes late for the start. Don't try to tell me you can do so much more with it when you spend more time trying to fix the damn thing than using it. "Where do you want to crash today?"
Then there's the G (fill in your own number 8..10..20) summit where suited world leaders gather in some far off land to wring their hands about how screwed up things are even though it was them who caused the mess in the first place. All promising to make things better in the future. Better if you're one of the suited elite that is. For the rest of us common folk and lesser of the planet it's the promise of a blue ribbon panel to look into the matter. Maybe that's how they get all those "dressage" metals Mitt was talking about. Blue ribbons don't come cheap ya know.
And on the economy we have few buying much of anything because after all who has the cash? And if you do have the cash you're afraid you might be the one stuck when the music stops and the house of cards falls. Not quite as bad as a certain previous downturn but little bright are the horizons on this journey. More on that later in the week. In the mean time life goes on I guess. Just remember wherever you go there you are.
