This week, so far, has been filled with assorted messes and disappointments. It's killing my enthusiasm and I can't sleep very well despite being tired and I've lost my appetite, too. I've spent all day dealing with bureaucrats and trying to muster some energy to no avail. This, of course, made a very cranky Wednesday but I'll spare you the details. I'm not much fun today.
* Obama is maintaining the status quo as near as I can tell and there is no end to war for our military in sight. We will continue to lose our children and that's a crime. Does anyone besides me recall that we never found any 'weapons of mass destruction' and that no Iraqis were caught after 9/11? I said my piece on Afghanistan earlier this week and still haven't changed my mind.
* Does anybody but me find all the hype about "Cap and Trade" confusing? I thought so. I have good news!!!! I visited my friend, Lilalia, over at Yum Yum Cafe and she posted an excellent, good old plain-speaking video about it -- just click on the link. And yeah, it's a scam that will make the greedy modern day robber barons richer and probably a bunch of Congress critters, too. Just say NO!
* Judy of Imagine . . . has some great photos of the Christmas floral arrangements she did for the Governor's Mansion in North Carolina. I guarantee that they will take your breath away and she promises more to come.
* From my "When What Freezes Over?" Department: Bank of America is going to repay the 45 billion bucks it received in TARP funds in the bank bailouts earlier this year. When do you think the other banks we bailed out will follow suit? I applaud Bank of America for their action.
On that mind-bending note I'm going to get outta here and hopefully get a decent night's sleep. Tomorrow means more phone calls to more bureaucracy and all the 'fun' that goes with it.
