A breather.

I think I'm going to take a few days off from the blog. It is just really hard to find funny entertaining things when all I feel is anxiety over this cluster fuck we call a government. I mean seriously. How can I read that Illinois has just completely stopped paying their bills and not feel anything but hopeless?

"Plenty of states face major deficits as the recession continues. They're cutting services or raising taxes or expanding gambling to close the gap. But Illinois is taking the extra step of ignoring bills.

Right now, $4.4 billion worth of bills, some dating back to October, are sitting in the Illinois comptroller's office waiting to be paid someday."


Link here.

All the while the banks have vacuumed all the money out of the economy, while bragging about perfect trading quarters. The government is trying to convince us we just don't pay enough in taxes - while they were padding their offices with Chihuly's.

The banks who said we needed to bail out Greece now confess they don't think Greece can pay the money back.

It just goes on and on. I'm tired, and not feeling very personable.

So, there you have it.

Enjoy your time away. The world will still be falling apart when you return. *headdesk*

Maybe you should try to round up another praying mantis to write about to take your mind off all the crap that's going on. Just sayin'.

Hang in there.

"Duh, tell me 'bout the rabbits, George. Tell me 'bout the rabbits."

If it makes you feel any better, Keyser feels the same way. You seem to be reading the same news.

MizM- Oh! That would be the ideal. If when I came back the world was not falling apart. Some days I feel like I've woken up in a completely unbelievable world.

I don't think the Matis's are out yet. I still have Jeffs egg sacks, and they haven't hatched. I'm starting to think she was sterile. Mr S. has been telling me for months to put them outside. Or we will come home one day and the babies will be everywhere.

Keyser - It sucks. I'm haunted by this blog which points out that the second leg of the Great depression was caused by European defaults. With the euro still caving....

The second wave is more savage. People have already used up their reserves.

As of yet, there is no reason not to believe there will be a second wave. When the bond vigilantes come - and they will come.

Nice Steinbeck reference, Keyser. ;-)
