I hear ya Michael.

I can genuinely sit here with a straight face and say that all
the journalists I grew up with who kept their mouths shut are
now in cushy jobs.

The ones that stood up are predominantly struggling except a rare

That's the way of the world.  Same percentages in the other
industries I'm apart of except a couple of them.

We've allowed this world to fall into a henchman's paradise.
Yes, like those campy henchmen from the old Batman TV show,
we've allowed the reinforcing of that kind of behavior and we're
paying the price for it. Half the people in this country voted
for Bush twice.  That's because they've got interests in
petroleum revenues due to their retirement portfolios.  Same
with the vicious pharmaceutical companies.  Never mind the
damage, just gimme my dividends!

Now look at us. On the brink of a recession and just yesterday
former Federal Reserve guru Alan Greenspan turned the tables on
Bush and the Republicans.

Me, I'm looking at some wonderful cheap real estate yet on the
