One Aside

On the bailout.

Today is Wednesday. Monday the House rejected a bad bailout bill. Tonight the Senate will pass that same bad bill with some stupid motherfucking tax breaks as so-called "sweeteners."

Listening to NPR this morning was painful. The talking heads and "experts" had come to the conclusion that the popular uprising against this bill on Monday was just us being confused. That the giant WALL STREET drop the next day has shaken and awakened us. That we now support the bill.

WE DO NOT. We are not slowly coming around to the reality you think we should see.


Everyone keeps saying the economy cannot function without easy credit flowing everywhere. That people can't get the loan they want to buy the car they would like to drive.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT people. Maybe, just maybe, you didn't need that car to survive in this world.

Sorry about that.
That people can't get a auto loan is not a reason to do or think anything. Please stop uttering this on or near radios that I may be near. I might just hunt you down.

people who work for businesses that make payroll/overhead expenses utilizing short term loans do have a legitimate concern that their employer will have to cut back or close due to inability to pay the bills. I'm not advocating, I'm just arguing.

I hope everything collapses soon. I can't wait for the post-apocalyptic world so I can say to heck with using credit and car loans, and I'll get to steal my own car from bandits and cover it with giant spikes and horns and run desert mutants and scavengers down just like Mad Max. That shit is cool.
