Desperate and Thankful

"Desperate Housewives," is there anyone who is not watching it? Hugely addicting, probably because of the sin and the shock value. Add me to the addicted. WOW. Talk about escapist. I heard it referred to as a "water-cooler" show and that it is. Workplace escapism run rampant.

Thankful to have Thanksgiving, and not to travel for it. Home, cooking, day of rest. That's my perfect day. Would wish the same for the world.

Flu shots again...

Once more, are we a third world nation? Now 94 year olds are being told to "come to the clinic" and wait in line for flu shots, which could take hours, and maybe the vaccine will run out before it is their turn?! I guess this is thinning out the population through indirect methods, and let it be a warning for all ages.

Elections over...now to get on with it

The elections are over, and now the politicos have to deal with the issues. That will mean a shift in their view from the incessant campaigning. Our ears are tired. I have nothing to say on that topic today, and am in fact, in a slump blogging-wise again. Until I am inspired, I say no more.

A world in chaos

Tomorrow is the presidential election. The world is in quite a bad way just now, and the outcome of the election may not make a difference in the general upheaval of malediction surrounding us. Can the president of the United States really affect the multi-national corporate stranglehold on the global economy, which is probably the real enemy of the working class everywhere. Outsourcing American jobs because slave labor can be had abroad chops at the foundation of America. No one seems to care about long term solid industrial capacity leaving this country by the ton each year. In fact, we have become a "service" nation, but surely that cannot prevail. Whom shall we serve in the long run? Each other? That seems like a pyramid scheme, just as ready to fall.
