As I sit here watching CNN with the rest of America and the debacle of this financial disaster I cannot help but pour myself a double. Dismal. There is no deal.
This situation has me so incredibly heavy hearted and FURIOUS!! If I, as a small business owner were to make multiple, egregious mistakes I would be out of business. My failure would not affect the economy as a whole, but you see my point. We are damned if we do, damned if we don't. I don't want to see Americans lose their homes, our investments and the future of our children lost; I also don't want to see these guys walk away with bonuses intact and a blank check written at our expense with no oversight.
Tell me this. Is the religious right so incredibly afraid of equal rights for gays and lesbians that they are willing to support the financial meltdown of our economy? Most supporters of extreme religious organizations like Focus on the Family or Americans for Truth have a combined income of less than 50K/year with children. They are not the financial benefactors of this Administration or it's policies. Yet, they are willing to go along with the financial fallout that is upon us because they are so incredibly afraid of equality? Really?? They continue to support all of this because of that? I can't imagine.
On the other hand our business here at Merge is growing. We are negotiating bigger contracts with more clients than ever before. After 5 years of "preaching to the choir" I think we are finally being heard. With times such as these brands have to look somewhere for someone to buy their product and here we are, where we have always been. So, is this the big "Uh-huh I told you so moment"........nope. I am just not that kind of girl.
Democracy, equality and compassion are the American way.
