Today we really want to know — how are you? Are you sad this season? Why? What are you doing to combat your blues?
How am I? I'm pissed! I'm pretty damn disgusted with the whole mess!
How about it, Politicians? How about helping the middle class become re-employed? Maybe then we can have HAPPY HOLIDAYS, too! How about helping more than just the wealthy to have a Happy Holiday?!? How about doing something about the U-6 Unemployed, you know, the number that includes those of us who are not drawing unemployment, who are under-employed or unemployed and growing more discouraged by the hour? How about it, Salem? How about it Washington, DC?
I'm tempted to just say "SCREW CHRISTMAS AND ALL THE HORSE HOCKEY THAT GOES WITH IT!" But I'm sure some Pollyanna will try to convince me to cheer up. Pretty damn hard to cheer up when one has been unemployed and looking without any luck for 32 months. Pretty damn hard to be cheerful when the whole holiday season reminds one of the death of a loved one! (Especially one's mother.)
You know what?
