7. I want to say "thank you" for your support.
Friday, I wrote a fist-pounding screed railing against the troubled economic times in which we live. Specific to the situation is my inability to find a job that utilizes my education, expertise and peripheral experience. Relative to my own situation are those haunting friends and acquaintences who find themselves in a similar pickle. We have also read parallel human interest stories in the news so much in the past few years.

Bush's economic lies evoke the most viceral rage and disgust. Trickle-down economic theory did not work in 1924. It did not work in 1980. It certainly does not work today. Anyone on the front lines of the Bush economic miracle knows what a mess we are in. Like the aftermath of the dot-com bust, too many people profiting from tragedy are those who are either left standing or stand to profit from cleaning up messes. Ah! What a mess, indeed.

Though I author this thread each morning, I do not feel that this permits me to be autobiographical whenever I feel like it. So I say "thank you" for for making room for me to express these sentiments. The outpouring of moral support on this thread warmed my heart. Thank you all for your uncommon kindness.
