Why I don't watch Main Stream Media.

Wow.... so, yah October's long gone and soon so is 2011.

I probably should write more.

But, I have a little bit of content today. So I've been doing my best to ignore the news media this month, mostly because everytime someone opens their mouth about politics I want to stomp the offending face in. This is not a healthy reaction to the body politic, so I stay away from it. :)

I hear a lot of stupid these days and I get my daily quota of stupid at work, most days. I'm not going to preach. I'm just going to quote (to the best of my ability, I unfortunately didn't get the woman's name, I was too busy eating a burger) someone I heard on CNN today while eating at the fine fast dining establishment who's corporation owns my company.

"Well, you see the banks are willing to loan us more money right now at *really* low rates. So what we need to do is *backload* the debt. Put it off for ten, or fifteen years and give the economy time to recover. (And just for fun, this woman was identified, if I recall correctly, as a conservative...)

^Thinking like that, is how we got where we are today.

This is why, we can't wait. It's going to hurt. A *LOT* but if we don't do it now, we're going to get to a point where its impossible. Or if not impossible, impossible *not* to do something, and it'll hurt a lot worse then. And then we'll be where Greece will be in less then five years.

It won't be pretty.

My two cents.
