“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Your learning for the day

I was going to cut & paste parts, but the whole thing needs a read. Head over to Peter's spot for a good overview of the financial mess facing us as a society:

The state of the U.S. and world economy

Your test is what happens in the next five year based on the choices we make.

This is part of why I keep saying it...

Know your area. Know your neighbors. Find out who is elderly. Find out who is sick. Find out who is disabled. The government can't keep taking care of them.

We have plenty of money to take care of the infirm. The problem is that the Democrats won't let us cut the other stuff, and when it all comes crashing down because they refuse to cut what needs cutting, the government won't be able to take care of the infirm anymore.

We'll need to do it ourselves.
