For my next trick..
..I'm going to pull a rabbit outta my ass!
I'm sure by now,that all of you are aware of the embarrassing debacle that occurred yesterday in the House O' Representatives,and no doubt,you're all asking yourselves the same question...
'Holy crap!..How is this congressional clusterfuck gonna affect Sling?'
I share your concern.
There were a few things that chapped my hide about the so-called Bailout Bill.
- Clearly,it smacked of Socialism..If I wanted the government to take possession of private enterprise,I'd move to one of those countries in the world where they do that sort of thing,whose name I can't think of right now,..and,
- Wait a minute!..Where the hell is MY bailout??..I mean,my co-workers and I put out a fine product,at a reasonable price.We worked hard to produce something that was beautiful,as well as functional,and now through no fault of our own we're spending our days watching internet porn,and waiting for the mailman to bring us our unemployment check!
Ultimately,I just wasn't satisfied that the bill,as it stood,properly addressed these issues.
In the end,I'm glad it failed to pass.
That's not to say that I'm of a mind that things will be all rainbows and Unicorns if we just let the shit continue to roll happily downhill.
My hopes are that a thoughtfully revised version of the bill will hit the hallowed halls of Congress come Thursday next.
Give us some reassurance that our investment stands some kind of chance of being recouped,and even profitable!
I'm pretty sure it's called 'Capitalism'..
Free up lines of credit so that small business,..you know,..the freakin' backbone of our economy,can access the raw materials it takes to continue to provide goods and services,meet their payrolls,and put me the fuck back to work!
And if it's at all possible,maybe a few Federal indictments for criminal assholed-ness on the part of the greedy bastards that wiped their asses with our national financial security would be in order..just sayin'.
I for one,will be closely monitoring the situation.
