This Is Getting Ugly….

http://money.cnn.com/2008/09/29/markets/markets_newyork/index.htm?cnn=yes

777 point plunge in the Dow???

$1.2 trillion in market value lost in one afternoon…

Bottom line, this is not even the time for me to bash the GOP for enabling this situation to unfold…

It’s really more of a time to freak the fuck out…

All I have been hearing is, “Don’t worry, the bailout will get done…” or “It has to get done, if not, our credit system will collapse…”

Well it didnt, and yes, now shit has fit the fan…

Not that I’m some huge fan of paying for Wall Street’s mistakes, but if this is the consequence? We need to make a compromise…

The common man doesn’t give a fuck about partisan disparities within the Senate…they want to know why the value of their home, their only substantial asset is plummeting or why they have lost thousands of dollars in their 401k in the past few months…

So here are some of my initial thoughts…

I don’t have time to sit here and analyze big business vs. government regulated businesses, to me it’s passed that point…

I’m more interested in, where does this leave me?

Did I actually make a mistake by going to college???

Because I know there’s a handful of motherfuckers form my senior high school class who decided to skip college and get trades like plumbing or painting…

And that shit was funny at the time, but now they have the stability i desire…

Ain’t that some shit!

Meanwhile, I’m stuck overworked, underpaid, bitter, and in debt…

Booooooooo

When they said, “It will get worse before it gets better…”, apparently they weren’t lying…

The real devastating reality of this general economic uncertainty is that while the media will report on the stock broker who lost a few million in a weekend or the billion dollar corporation whose shares fell 15%…they don’t emphasize the family of 5 who just went from a dual income to struggling to survive on one paycheck while putting their kids through college…

Or the single mother who can’t keep up with the recent increase in the simple things needed to survive like food and gas…

I mean really, that stockbroker may be crying but those tears are a lot richer than the factory worker who just lost their job and now has to consider selling his house below value just to survive, while the other guy has a Rembrandt hanging in his living room….

Gimme a fuckin’ break…

If this doesn’t get resolved by Wednesday, Mike James and myself are taking this operation to Mexico…

Fuck it…call this shit And This Is My Mexico?

Sand…Sun…and muchas tetas y cervezas!!!
