  1. If you remember, and wish to check the record, you will see that I began talking about direct payments to people even before Senator Romney first made his $1000 per person proposal. I’m not that much brighter than this bunch of fools; they could have easily seen how this will play out. We have been screwed, on purpose, by Congress. Both parties are to blame.

  2. You’re right again … on several counts. Direct payments and the “same same-edness” of the primary parties.

    But, you’re probably brighter than the bunch of fools.

  3. Once again the the great song by Steelers Wheels “Stuck in the Middle” comes up: “Clowns to the left of me, and jokers to the right, hear I am, stuck in the middle.”

  4. Yup!

    But would it not be a revelation if we could get those jokers and clowns to come to the middle to focus on identifying the problem and finding a resolution that would benefit everyone?

  5. That’s doubtful, as government leaders and politicians did in 1918, so do government leaders and politicians do the same thing today — They lie and deny.
