    Fuck it...

    Fuck it all... nothing makes sense any more. None of it... UPS downgrading earnings, Bernake saying he wants to taper, but wait, no he doesn't.... these signals... our lifetimes....

    It matters. How do you process it?

    These inept people seem to hold a very strong grip on all of our lives... how do you handle it?

    Do you care? Do you know how "they" affect you?

    Strange times indeed...

    I don't worry about things I have no control over.

    But isn't that the point?

    You are told you have a voice, when you don't... is what we're left with a choice of who to kneel to?

    That's fucked.

    This America. I have the opportunity everyday to be as successful as I want to be. No one else controls that unless you let them.

    i can't think about it. i think we passed a tipping point a while ago and now it's every man for himself.

    OP reminds me of Lazlo from the GTA video game radio.

    No. Didn't you play GTA Vice City, San Andreas or IV?

    Freedoms are taken away from us right from under our feet and the media messages that we're polluted with is misinformation and distractions from the real issues.

    They're trying to legislate a new glass steagall act but it will probably stall in the house.

    Another problem is citizens united.

    As long as money runs Washington, we're doomed.

    What amazes me is that you seem to feel protected from all of it... why?

    I don't feel protected from it. I just got to work everyday so I can feed my family and I figure that's what I'm gonna do until I can't do it anymore.

    The only way to judge the current state of our economy, anymore, is to watch how well the railroad and walmart are doing. Its time for you to finally decide whether to commit suicide or stock supplies and start shooting the colords and mexicans
