35. K&R and bookmarked for easy reference.

Since I've always followed the financial news whether I had $ or not, I knew this damned housing bubble would burst sooner than later, and I'd been preparing for the fallout a long, long time. That's why I'm comparatively comfortable from a frugal standpoint, but even that would never have been possible w/o President Obama, and don't think I don't know it. He helped save my bacon (and everyone else's) and that's the main reason I owe him such a huge debt of gratitude, too much ever to repay. It's also why I consider it a joyful duty to defend him.

Most people in rural areas are poor, and it's not because they're the lazy parasites their beloved overlords have called them. I remember Harry Truman saying something about how long would it take for a man being whacked over the head with a 2x4 until he figured out exactly who was on the other end of it? When and if that happens, Katy bar the door.

The people around here are nowhere near figuring it out yet. But I wonder if a few, even the worst off, have at least a slight inkling when they see that even with my very modest means I've managed to live pretty well by comparison, and that w/o debt. It seems to mystify as well as anger some, and w/o just cause they've poured their bile out over my head on many an occasion. I can only hope one day they'll realize the wisdom of Dr. Howard Dean's assertion that only a fool lets the Republicans handle the nation's $. Truer words never spoken.
