Please forgive the crude headline. Our focus as a people is on the wrong things. We pay too much attention to things that tickle us emotionally while bankers toss a trillion here and a trillion there like someone scattering fertilizer. Maybe that’s what the paper money is going to end up being worth. Maybe that’s what we should do instead of burning the bills when they’ve become too tattered and messed over to stay in circulation.
Really, the birther issue is like a zombie horse that won’t lay back down and now there is talk of the President’s adoption papers from his time in Indonesia. Those are the “adopters” and since they showed up on the newsy scene after the birthers I’m calling them AFTERBIRTHERS…the zombie horse’s arse that also won’t lay back down.
