Those closely held secret lesbian desires that you’d never tell a SOUL about.

I think the direction this all goes in will please you.

I have my thoughts as to what I’d like to see happen next, which may or may not be referenced to my secret lesbian desires. But I leave it in your apt hands, for I am sure to be delighted.

I can’t wait for the next chapter. After only 3 chapters it is somewhat addicting. I HAVE to know what happens next!

YOU! This is why I’m such a fan! You really hit the nail on the head again. I REALLY enjoyed this post and our conversation. It helped me examine my feelings more and clarify where I really stand. Thank you =)

I believe that fiscal conservatism is a philosophy that has its merits (though inadequate as a full-on governing principle). But when it’s married to virulent anti-government paranoia and regressive social views, it is utter poison.

I get too worked up about the ignorance and arrogance of the GOP, as a woman, as a lesbian and as a disabled individual. But I saw this post and had to read it. I’m glad that I did. Not just because I agree with you, but because you didn’t mince any words. You told it like it is. And it’s about time America started understanding how much damage the GOP can do. How far back in time they will take this country.

Agree unregulated market is not the solution for reasons you mention. I am not part of the 1% by a long shot but I feel resistance to the idea of just throwing tax money from the rich. I don’t like raising taxes on anyone as a convenient solution. Bailouts were insane but I see why they were necessary. Ugh it’s just a mess.

Ever since the Christian Coalition hitched its wagon to the GOP, this has been the way. Politicians don’t want to lose that vote.

As to the economic side of things, the small government solution is not necessarily the best thing for job growth. Historically, we’ve done best when the government is actually able to regulate (even in these “big government” days, the regulatory arm of the government is nearly inactive). We sort of have the worst of both worlds now: a government that costs too much to run, but that only seems to help out the big guys. So we have the social programs of the Democrats (which need to be made more cost-efficient, though certainly not through privatization), and the proven-failure trickle down policies Reagan loved so much.

I suppose I just don’t think the market is the solution for everything. The market is amoral. Humans may be imperfect, but they can be moral.
