(10 am. – promoted by ek hornbeck)
This morning to forestall beating my head against the wall, I called Dick’s office:
A nice young lady answered –
X: I can hardly believe it, but this am I heard on the Russian tv station that we may
interfere and well – invade Libya. I can’t believe it. I cannot. Now I know as do
others that Sen. Durbin is a neoliberal who is working behind the scenes to
cut SS and probably Medicare. It is what it is. I’ve given up on him as an
strong Democrat and I hope that the cuts in SS/Medicare will help – how can I put
it – help out our corporate masters in the oil business. Is there gas there?
whatever. Also to help out the masters of the universe mercenary firms. I want
to do my part.
Perhaps I am unhinged. Several wars instituted by your country in an old lady’s
lifetime can do that. Wars that were paid for by her retirement funds. May I make
a bet with you, young lady. In 5, 6, 7 years, this headline is a possibility:
Russian, Iran and China finalize an oil deal with Libya. The United States has
signed another trade deal with Libya causing the loss of 3,450 jobs. Food riots
have broken out in Detroit, Chicago and Dallas.
Well, I will pass your concerns on to Senator Durbin.
X: Oh don’t bother, my dear. He’s not interested in me, or reason for that matter.
X: Thank you for your time – I just had to make a phone call about it. I hope you
I feel as though I am going mad. Am I?
