The Economy - We're all in this together. But, are we?

[sorry about the late posting, it was accidentally set for tomorrow and I only now noticed it]

Saturday was the long-awaited "Rally To Restore Sanity And/Or Fear" in Washington D.C., and around the nation with smaller ones in various cities. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert brought to bare all the sanity and humor they could muster and it sounds like everyone had a pretty fun and interesting time.

I've been watching all this noise about the Tea Party, the Big Party parties, as well as all the complaining, grumblings and ramblings that have been going on for some time now.

And the funny signs from the Rally to Restore Sanity.

One said, "We're all in this together." But, area we? Don't you kind of get the feeling that this is just not the case?

You should really check out some of the signs people brought to the rally. Some are very funny. Some are funny but if you really think about it, very sad, for us. Some, just very thought provoking and do indicate, we need a change, need to grow up, get along, help out, think America and not only about ourselves. We do need to keep taxes to a minium, but what is that? We need to pay taxes, I'm pretty damn sure they are not high enough as we are living on a credit lifestyle; our teachers are paid dirt, our infrastructure is suffereing, and it goes on and on.

Do I want to pay more taxes? No, Will I? Yes, if it can help fix things, and get us out of debt. Do I want bigger government? No. And we may not need bigger government.

But we do need to fix things, get along, help one another, and just get the damn thing done!

I'd like to think it was. But we now have so many diverse interests, so many opposite wants and agendas. How, in the world, can we make it all work?

I have to say, I think Jon and Colbert, are on to something.
