My bank failed  
I have to say it is interesting to be part of the largest bank failure in U.S. history (so far). Thank Goddess for FDIC, that's all I can say. :)

It's fascinating to watch the melt down of our economy and the frantic efforts to save it while not being able to de-politicize the rescue efforts. The McCain theater was just pathetic. Meanwhile the Palin interviews with Katie Couric are just plain scary at times. Palin continues to insist that being close to Russia has conferred some special wisdom and then goes on to mention Putin invading their air space. Really? Have you been reading too much cold war fiction or something?

I hope McCain ends up bitterly regretting this hasty, political choice for V.P. It seems her favorables are dropping and her unfavorables are rising as people finally get a look into the bubble surrounding her and are worried about what they hear.

These days I'm too busy watching the spectacle that this election season provides to write much about it. You can't make this stuff up--no editor would buy it as fiction! I mean, Palin being protected from witchcraft? Wow! (Too bad, I was thinking of a spell...)

Protected from witchcraft?? ROFLMAO I missed that one somewhere along the way.

Yeah this minister from Africa who drove a village woman away by accusing her of witchcraft came and prayed over Palin while laying hands on her, to save her from witchcraft in Jesus' name.

I'm fairly sure counteracting Muthee would be easy... let me see...

Two teaspoons of tiger spunk, a dollop of pureed fundie Christian eyeballs, a few drops of extra virgin menstrual blood, simmer and stir under the full moon until it turns black. Add a homeless man's toenails, shake vigorously and strain though some of Kevin Carlyon's hair while doing the Greater Ritual of the Belligerent Muffin Men.

On a more serious note: sounds to me like you're better off hiding your money under your mattress...

All the accounts were sold off to JP Morgan Chase and everything is working seamlessly with the same ATM card and so on. After the great depression laws were changed so that the government guarantees deposits up to 100K.

People who have taken money out of banks have had it ripped off or burned up with their homes, so I'm not a proponent of the mattress bank philosophy. :)

People can always buy gold and store it in a safety deposit box.

Or store the cash in a safety deposit box.

"I mean, Palin being protected from witchcraft? Wow! (Too bad, I was thinking of a spell...)"

Actually, I wasn't thinking of any spells beforehand, but seeing that video made me want to try. You know, just to test how strong that "protection" was. And then I started thinking about how many people you could coordinate in a mass ritual . . .

But I actually think there's too much religion in politics right now; and there's so many things that Palin is already doing to herself, I don't know if I have the heart to wish much worse on the woman.
