17. You're damned right I'm worried. I didn't have enough saved for
retirement to begin with, now it's down to pitiable levels. If there was ever a need for sleeping meds, it's now.

Your words really touched my heart. I feel like you, too, that Barack Obama just might be the compassionate intellect he purports to be and will not devolve into a right-leaning pseudo-liberal. He'd got a very tough road 'a hoe. I'm dreading even IF he wins. I've seen so many of the good ones taken down. Out country does not reward out kindest leaders.

I definitely need to read "Dreams of My Father." I could really use some inspiration now.

Sorry, but I don't believe Paulson, Bernanke, Greenspan, and especially GWB know WTF to do to stanch this flow of lost capital. They're probably a hell of a lot more concerned with ensuring that their own personal investments are liquid and getting the hell out of the market themselves.

Screw the underclass.
