Swimming In My Head…

diving in the deep end…

Frustrated

I’m frustrated – really, really frustrated.

As I was driving today, I passed a couple of people who were collecting money for the homeless and for the first time in my brief 35 years on this planet, I faced the fact that I truly don’t have any extra money to give someone else right now.

It made me feel bad because I’m thinking about the fact that in the grand scheme of things, life isn’t so bad for me and there are others far worse off, but I can’t help them right now because I’m in survival mode.

The frustration comes in because I can’t make it logical.  I know the same thing that hopefully every other American knows right now – I’m not helping the economy when I don’t spend.  I know it in theory, but how to fix it…that’s another question.

That’s what’s ‘swimming in my head’ right now – nothing more, nothing less.

Is She For Real?

I know, I know, I’ve got to stop playing ‘Palinolitics’. I just can’t help it. Especially when I see people waving McCain/Palin signs on Dale Mabry, across from the ‘RayJay’ during the middle of rush hour like I did yesterday. What was striking to me was that the people waving the signs, didn’t look particularly well put together. Good ol’ Sarah has made it clear that she’s only fond of a few and they wouldn’t meet the criteria.

Don’t you get it? She doesn’t like you!

So one of her latest snafus is about earmarking money and fruit fly research. I don’t think the average person needs to know about it anyway, but since she brought it up, she’s very ill-informed to think that this kind of research is not valuable.

It seems that fruit fly research is and will be the basis for some advances in treatment or cure for humans from things like cancer, autism and other diseases and viruses. All information available on the internet if she’d just taken the time to look it up.

I suspect she’d rather be out thanking people for calling her a redneck. What a joke. And can someone please tell me why they think she’ll be better in 2012?

Watch her face when she’s talking about it. She really thinks she’s driving the point home hard…Sarah Palin – codename ID.10.T
