Stop the presses! The economy is tanking!


Tell me this. In running your household, do you not anticipate future expenses relative to income? Do you not calculate risks? Do you not try to mitigate impending crises? Do you have a clue about economics? Do you read the newspapers? Do you listen to radio? Do you watch television? Do you realize how soon the shit will hit the fan?

If you answer yes to any of these questions you are more qualified than the idiot to lead this once great nation.
Seemingly out of the blue, the Bush Administration and the Congress are talking about some sort of tax relief or tax rebates. The words you hear are "urgent," "immediate," "quickly," and so on. Congress has to act "immediately" to get out this money to taxpayers "quickly." Here's my question: did no one in Washington see this coming, say, a month ago, or three months ago, so that they could have acted in a considered fashion, rather than acting like a sudden emergency has developed? For sure there are tens of millions of people outside of Washington who could have told them that.

Qualified people in debt also know that when times are good you need to spend more money to pay off what you owe. The Republican response to crisis is "tax cut!", and the Republican response to times of plenty is "tax cut!". Qualified people might wonder at the logic of that.

Ah, but we aren't qualified people. We're just fucking peons.
