It was with some interest that I finally got around to seeing Michael Moore's latest offering "Capitalism, A Love Story."
I didn't realize that my own private little unemployment and mortgage hell had been translated to the big screen.
So much for that book deal and movie options.
Say what you will about Mr. Moore, but I can tell you with absolute clarity that I'm living a vast majority of that story right now.
On it's face that may seem depressing, but there are a number of things that let me know I wasn't the only one to notice that things were amiss.
Mr. Moore also called attention to those who foresaw the subprime mortgage fallout. He also pointed out that the TARP bailout was passed on the second go round despite the fact it was voted down the first time.
Make no mistake friends---This whole TARP thing sounded extra bootleg the minute it was announced.
It's nice to know I'm not crazy. I wasn't being paranoid.
So the question remains---what's next?
What happens when people's severance or savings disappears and they find out that the safety net that was so generously extended for corporate America isn't large enough for "average" American?
Ladies and gentlemen if you didn't read it when I wrote it the first time, understand it now: We're screwed.
I'm just curious about the course of action the rest of my fellow Americans are going to take when they wake up and smell the coffee.
This may not be pretty.
