"Anxiety Pangs'

                              What a mess it is out there this morning..Around here our low-bidder snow plow guy with his jeep can’t figure out what to do with all the snow. I’m so glad I don’t have to go out. On TV all transportation is stalled and for the most part no one is going anywhere. Trucks are even banned from route 95 in Connecticut. Its really bad and I can just imagine the anxiety pangs of having to have to go to work. I would start like this….Get up an hour earlier. Clean the snow from the car and the windshield. Let the car warm up and then drive in horrific traffic with the other 5.1 million people who have to do exactly the same thing as me. What we have in common is we are probably going to be at a job we don’t really want but can’t leave because we are lucky to have one. We are earning just enough money but not quite enough to keep our heads above water so our families don’t freeze to death because heating oil is so expensive. I can’t find a price per gallon locally. Its so high they won’t say anything. They will give you a bid. The price must be high if you have to bid on it. I remember when 100 gallons cost $80 .…I don’t know what the government takes out of your checks for taxes these days but I can just imagine. I mean someone's got to pay for the Security guards and Charter jets the politicians use these days. We, the minions shell out $3.30 a gallon for gas, so we can drive to work in a blinding snow storm and get caught in a huge traffic jam, while your leaders decide whether to have the maid or nanny who is probably illegal, call the Limo to come and get them. Hey, what can I say? Someone's got to do it…If you do have a job and you do get to work, you stay there for 8 hours, that’s only if where you work still has 8 hour days or you stay till the clock says its time to go home only to take your life in your hands driving in traffic going between 80 and 100 miles per hour. That’s only if you don’t get caught in another traffic jam…..Don’t worry though, your leaders in Washington left early to have the Limo driver take them home so they can dress in that $5000 suit to go to a dinner party to honor the drug company lobbyist who gave them the extra $5 million dollars to get elected. That’s so the drug company's can make a pill that costs less than one tenth of a cent and charge you $12.76 per pill but that’s another story… Hey, that’s the way is in our land, home of the brave….
