Cost of the War in Iraq
WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment.

Wenchie's Bleeding Heart!!!
OK, if my last entry tonight exhausted you in a good way, this one shouldn't.
Here is a quizzy thing I got over at Chaosdaily's tonight... she's a libertarian. I would be if I didn't think that people are idiots who do things against their own best interests and thus end up begging on the streets full of oozing pus after they've blown their retirement funds on gambling, or that CEO's of private retirement funds will pocket salaries large enough to feed an army of aging alzheimer victims (who have children who have squandered their health and money on the aforementioned gambling, half in vegas and half on Enron stocks). Yeah, I am afeared of a society without medicare, welfare, and social security. People falling through the cracks is bad enough. With no floor, it will look like Calcutta. Do you know how annoying it is to have every public space littered with pustulent starving beggars? Four year olds toting around babies begging from tourists? Not a pretty site. And that was just in Spain. I never been to Calcutta. But Barcelona train station, let me tell ya. Call me a bleeding heart, but I'd rather pay my taxes though I bitch about them, and have them swindle us by a couple hundred thou (which by the way they spent in advertising agencies... hahaha, imagine, it was graphic artists getting rich for once instead of oil company CEOs laying off people! yay!) than deal with the social fallout of no social services and have the CEO's spend it on private jets to cheap phillipine prostitutes. I'm all heart eh!
3 People have left cute, callous or caring comments on the wench's wordiness!!
