The New York Times says Timothy Geithner is getting a reputation for tough talk and no action. But I think that’s going easy on the guy. A few weeks ago I read a headline that said “Geithner Opposes Pay Caps In Favor Of Regulation.” Now that’s masterful spin! Who the heck says they’re mutually exclusive? We need pay caps and we need regulation. And lots of it! Let’s be very clear about Geithner. He had his face in the Wall Street trough before he got to the White House and he’ll slam his face right back in that trough the minute he leaves the White House. And the same goes for Larry Summers. When Obama chose Geithner and Summers for his Cabinet, he put the fox in charge of the henhouse. And we Americans are the hens. So, start clucking! As for the French Revolution, in addition to the guillotines, they tied the scoundrels together in pairs and tossed them in river so if one didn’t drown, the other pulled him under. Here’s to Geithner and Summers. They make a perfect pair!

I was just horrified as I packed up the garbage, and saw how many plastic water bottles our two-person household alone was contributing to the plague of plastic. Suddenly, the movie Wall-E flashed into my mind. All I can say is, that when the time comes, thank you very much, I am not getting off that spaceship to try coming back to the huge landfill that we have made of this earth! I will stay strapped in front of my entertainment screen, sipping whatever the heck is in those big plastic cups everyone had. Exercise, and the ability to touch one’s own toes, is overated anyway!
