Plenty Of Nothing


In the throes of the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, the Dow jumped up over 900 points today. What's it all mean? I have no idea. I don't even look at my 401K since I can't touch it anyway until I'm too old to get any enjoyment out of it!
I am no economics expert, but here in NYC, the restaurants are emptier than Sarah Palin's soul and there seem to be less turista's too. A friend of mine in the service industry says that her bar was pretty barren this weekend.

There are definite signs of massive corporate lay-offs in the next few weeks (just in time for the holidays, Ebenezer).

I guess it was a really good time for me to stop drinking! Those $6 pints sure add up.

We're not recovering from this anytime soon, fellow travelers.

I was poor, am poor, & will be poor, so I don't really give a fuck about the economy & the Stock Market loosing $50,000,000. I'm going to fiddle while Rome burns. If I wasn't a vegetarian, I'd bring marshmallows.

Your word verification says "icklfugl"

"emptier than Sarah Palin's soul"??? You have no credibility when you say stuff like that.

If you really had a clue, you'd know the financial crisis is due to the most liberal of Democrats. People like Sarah Palin are our best hope.

I'm frightened to death. My job is in serious trouble. I have some reassurance that I won't be completely unemployed as I am a union delegate and because of that the hotel must keep me employed somehow. Of course, I could be making beds this time next year. Not that it is not honorable, it's just not what I want to do.
