My apologies well in advance but I just have to vent.
The other day I mentioned that I gave up on reading the news online or in the paper simply because I found it too depressing. Well as I said before I cheat which sucks because the news are still depressing but what the hell. I am annoyed by two things
1. The fact that our chancellor and every other leader of the free world seems to think next year is going to be terrible. Which is probably true but hell what a way to motivate folks.
2. The eejit-like behaviour of some governments who bail out banks that offered credit to the credit-unworthy. And now the very same banks can go on to lend money to people that should in no way be offered any more credit in order to boost the economy.
Sometimes I wonder if the world is schizophrenic. First there is a call out that people should not worry and spend money to help the economy and when that is done they then conjure up the apocalypse. No wonder consumers are frightened when they hear the horrible outlook for next years. It’s as if they can’t make up their mind. Sometimes I am expecting the government to call on folks to stock up on drinking water and canned food they make it look so grim. That’s when I just want to scream “we’re all doomed” and hide myself in the basement.
Please excuse me while I breathe into this brown paper bag. I think we’re all well aware that the economy is in the shitter right now. And without a doubt there will be tough times ahead but this is not a time to panic and certainly not the only time things have been or ever will be in the shitter. So media and government grow a pair, get your fucking act together and act like responsible grown-ups.
I am done ranting now. This is exhausting!
