I knew I would lose my faith... I really did. I just didn't expect it to happen so.... quickly. I didn't have such high hopes: I wasn't asking for a pollution-free, war-free world, or equality, or even universal health care in the next eight years. I just wanted an honest attempt to clean up the financial sector, at a time when you would think that given the revelation of the filthy depth they have dragged us, there would be a real momentum for things to... change.
I should have just stuck to that realization that I had come to so long long ago... you can't fight the man.
It's 3am in the morning, but I'm either too pissed or too frightened to sleep. I've put an update of what's going on w/ Fannie and Freddie at Momocrats. I impore you read this. I implore you tell everyone you know to read this. It is something we all need to understand, so that when the shit starts rolling down the mountain towards us, at full speed, we aren't blindsided.
No blame, no solutions, but we need to keep our politicians honest about this one. It's too big to just sit idly by, not understanding.
