The Whiners

I agree with Phil Gramm that we're a nation of whiners, but not for the same reasons.

We didn't whine enough about stolen presidential elections.
We didn't whine enough about the Patriot Act.
We didn't whine enough about Iraq, the casualties or the cost.
We didn't whine enough about FEMA & Katrina.
We didn't whine enough about flim flam mortgages.
We didn't whine enough about veterans' care.
The list is longer.

But when we have to drive with forethought & efficiency so as not to waste expensive fuel ( the process began a long time ago, Carrie's blog ran a series of alarming posts on it), then we whine loud & long. Put it on the list & prioritize it.

No folks, Gramm was not referring to whining politicians but to us. Gramm was a spy for Repugs while he was still a Democrat, was owned by banks when he was in the Senate, became a bank lobbyist when he left the Senate; he's listening very closely to their whining as John "Savings & Loan" McCain's "economic advisor." With the Repugs, we get banks, oil, & bad religion, the first two screw us while the third tells us not to screw, just the emphasis changes. Don't be fooled by Gramm's academic resume; every university in America has at least one crackpot Ph.D professor in the Economics Dept. but Gramm's the only one that became a sleazy senator from Texas.
