I Used To Like Mitt Romney

I really did. I must have been thrown by his charm. He's against the auto bailout and therefore against America. If I get laid off because the automakers stop buying TV ads, I will be writing to Mitt and explaining. I will also write to all those people focused on private jets.
 
Although -- begging for money after getting off a private jet was a stupid idea.
 
Still, I watched a story on CNN explaining people in Detroit can't afford funerals. Bodies are stacking up at the morgue. That's today. People will be found frozen to death in their homes this winter if General Motors runs out of money.
 
I really don't get it. I don't understand how people can use rhetoric to deny help. Someone at my job told me Californians are against helping Detroit because they want a punishment for the lack of fuel efficient cars. Leave it to rich people (who think they're so socially aware and progressive) to boil it down to a slap on the wrist. I'm disappointed in my government and in my new home state.
 
Other than that, things are going well. I have a birthday party in Vegas this weekend. It's not for me, but you know how I love birthdays. We move when I get back -- or as soon as we get a bed. I have a lot to do before I leave, so I better get to it.
