Found via Rachel Lucas, a nice glimpse at the future from Virginia Congressman Jim Moran:

For the last seven years we have had the highest corporate profit ever in American history. . . But it hasn't been shared, and that's the problem, because we have been guided by a Republican Administration who believes in the simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitled to keep it. They have an antipathy toward the means of redistributing wealth. And they may be able to sustain that for a while, but it doesn't work in the long run.

Is it time to be scared yet?

It's past time to be scared. Get ready to spread the wealth. I think I might just quit my job, why should I work if the government is going to pay me anyway?

Siplistic notion that what people earn they keep?

Guess I should be glad I don't have a lot of money. I'm with Jennifer...why work?

Hubby is about to get promoted. Already announced. I fully intend to quit my job after the new year. Not sure yet whether I'll go looking for a new one; we'll see.

Oh be afraid. Be very afraid. I had to spend dinner with a bunch of people who no longer think we need a Dept. of Homeland Security because "Bush is the biggest terrorist of all"

What. Ever.
