Bailout 2008, a poem by David Jeffrey
Like a bloodied warrior,
laying broken and torn.
Like a dying soldier, hopeless and forlorn.
But the blood, it be green,
the color of money.
And the soldier is an economy,
and it is anything but funny.
Broken are it’s people and shattered are their dreams.
Thanks to the ultra rich and their full proof schemes.
It is a tragedy with more pain to come.
Finance will be Hell, and their wills will be done.

After years of depression and then making a decision to change my life I started using positive affirmations. Its taken nearly a year, but one morning I woke up and thought ‘I choose to be happy’ and have been. whenever I am in situation that would have normally caused me to sink into depression, i simply repeat those words and i am able to avoid the depression. Positive statments and affirmations definately work.

When Faith Turns Neurotic
When does reciting scripture become a symptom of neurosis? Or praying the rosary an unhealthy compulsion?
