I’m sorry, this is all my fault. This never would have happened if I had not fallen asleep for that exact 20 minutes. If I hadn’t drank that exact whole bottle of beer.
This last year have been a shitty one, to say the least. Not only are the banks still failing, now entire governments are on the watch list. The bankruptsy of Dubai World threatens to damage the economy of at least a few European governments. Some of them are already bankrupt. The United States will not be far behind as long as we keep fighting that foolish war in Afganistan. It didn’t work for the Soviets or the British, why would we do any better after 8 years? America is trying to police a decades long tribal war. We have won in Iraq, but only by default after a long brutal civil war and ethnic cleansing.
The economy is still showing no signs of recovery, but at least it may have finally stabilized. The top 1% richest people in America right now have more wealth than the combined 99%. Wall Street continues to dispense multimillion bonuses to the liars and thieves that are investment bankers.
