A Bureaucrat's Aside

I'm trying to decide if the Treasury Department's move today to purchase an additional $800 billion in loans is akin to (1) robbing Peter to pay Paul, (2) cutting off your nose to spite your face, or (3) building a castle in the middle of a swamp, having it sink into the swamp, only to build another castle that will burn down, fall over, THEN sink into the swamp.

If #3, we can only hope that someone comes to rescue us in their own particular...uh...idiom.

No singing!

This may sound bad but, I quit keeping up with all that. I'm just disgusted with how all that is being handled. On another note, how many times did the castle sink into the swamp?lol I just love anyone who quotes the holy grail. :o)

Hope you have a happy thanksgiving.
