The world is crazier than most people know. But I know. I was a clinical social worker for forty years. I am a witness. I retired from social work to write about the sad, the mad, and the savage; with whom I have spent most of my life. I have decided to translate these stories into fiction, because, as a co-worker once said, "You couldn't make this sh*t up. No one would believe you."

ONE BOOMER'S VIEW OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE...UH...DUH...

The problem with America is not the politicians, or even MegaCorpoCash. It’s not the rich. It’s the American people.

We are stupid. If we work at it just a little more, we might just become not only the stupidest people in the world but the biggest idiots in history. They might even invent a new Nobel Prize for us, The Nobel Prize for Advanced Brain Death.

We are in Great Depression II, The Sequel. How did we get here? 
Presidents and politicians bought and paid for by MegaCorpoCash saw to it that financial regulations put in place after Great Depression I were repealed. Surprise! Cowboy CEO’s went wild, made zillions, and CRASH! here we are.

But….shame on us. We elected a different regime, we wanted “change.”  Oh no! This could jeopardize our standings in the World Dumb*ss Finals! Thankfully, the new regime could not fix the mess in a year and a half so we’re about to vote in the greedy bast*rds again. Hallelujah! Our position in the world is redeemed!

Now we can safely reassert our position as retards of account. We can sleep soundly, knowing that we have brought back the architects of our misery, who will follow the orders of their masters, MegaCorpoCash, and rip us off until there’s nothing left! And we don’t even have to worry about becoming a third world nation….the pols fronting for MegaCorpoCash passed No Child Left Behind, which is making schools so impotent they’re turning out peasants-to-be by the thousands!

  1. That's about it, Janey. And the MegaCorpoMedia sucks from the MegaCorpoCashCow taking the Dumb*sses seriously, like they did tonight on the Lehrer News Hour with Time Mag and the NYT discussing seriously the idiot Beck rally of Dumb*sses!
