Stop Whining and Start Visualizing

You know what? I have had it with all the gloomy, depressing talk about the economy. I think it is time for us to stop whining, get off our butts, and do something about this mess we find ourselves in.

There is nothing we can do to change the past. We should not dwell on the fact that George W. Bush has personally ruined our careers, destroyed our hard-earned home equity, and driven us into suffocating credit card debt. Now is not the time for that.

Do we have to spend all of our time looking back at all the unavoidable, unforeseeable, and undeserved wretched things that have destroyed the very fabric of our care-free American life? No, we do not.

So what can we do? How can we put the past behind us and focus our life energy on visualizing a better tomorrow?

The first step of course is to cleanse our minds of all the negativity and general unpleasantness that has been forced upon us by the corporate conglomerates and their political monkey-dogs in DC.

Turn off the news, step away from the internet, brew yourself a cup of organic herbal tea, roll out your yoga mat, have a seat, close your eyes, and just contemplate the oneness of the universe, the chi, and all that stuff for a while.

Do not worry, there is no rush. Take all the time you need. Just space out and let all the bad vibes ooze out at their own pace (you may want to have some tissues handy).

Once you have purified your mind, you will be prepared to take some real action.

Picture in your mind a world without strife and suffering—a world where the only news is good news.

Can you see it?

I can, I can.

Good.

  1. I feel soooo much better today. Were all Obamacrats now.

  2. I so agree with this, totally. Can we get this editorial on the ever-gloomy and depressing (and unimaginative) prime time network news?

  3. Yeah sure… I can hear the whole country singing “We are the world… We are the children…” They should be singing “We are the poor, we are your great grandchildren… We’ll be paying off your debt until we’re dead children… The Republicrats broke it… or was it the Democans? Let’s ship all our production off-shore it’s cheaper… Let’s buy stuff made in China, it’s cheaper… No auto industry? Stupid Americans! The rest of the world is driving small, reliable, efficient cars… it’s just that they’re made ELSEWHERE. We didn’t learn the lesson Volkswagen tried to teach us in the late 60’s… Gas guzzling SUVs… that’s the ticket… only now they’re mostly desired by ppl in oil-rich countries. Trust me… Obama can’t fix it.

  4. Oh yeah… you wanted to “visualize” it. Yeah right… get the two bottles of blackberry wine from Pasek Cellars in Mount Vernon which were mentioned in another story, drink them, and begin to visualize… “Oh look, Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore” – Oh yes you are, just wait for the wine to wear off… lol

  5. It was Willie Clinton that put me in cc debt for like ever! By the statistics over time the 90’s cc debts were the beginning of the end that we are realizing now.

  6. I so agree with this, totally. Can we get this editorial on the ever-gloomy and depressing (and unimaginative) prime time network news?
