The stock market news is making me crazy.
I know that every ten years or so there is a big scandal and the market is rocked. In the 80s, it was Michael Milken and junk bonds. I was using drugs and cheering for the system to come tumbling down. In the 90s, it was Enron. I had no money, didn’t care. But now I have a house. I just got a raise. I have a stake, people!
I keep asking Holly if I should withdrawal all our money from the bank. She says, Do whatever.
But where would we put it? Tomorrow my goal is to stop watching the news. And stock tickers.
Ya know, I think you can lay all of this (I will, anyway) at the feet of one Screen Actor’s Guild president from California and 40th president of the U.S., Ronald W Reagan, and his voodoo economics. There have been 25 years of this bullshit and it’s time the Republican Party took responsibility for their policies. As my father says: “There was a goddamned good reason for regulation when it was enacted years ago.” Amen to that!
