Tossed Salad Friday

~~~Matt Taibbi in Rolling Stone encapsulates and explain how avarice on lenders’ parts far, far, far exceeded the self-indulgence of home buyers and refinancers who cashed in on the last housing bubble:

~~~As I have frequently detailed my financial woes here and on the Huffington Post, I am not surprised anymore when a friend gives me a bunch of pens after reading www.huffingtonpost.com/lita-smithmines/non-supply-side-economics_b_208025.html, or a gift of a box of tea is dropped off days after http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lita-smithmines/brother-can-you-spare-a-t_b_413552.html was published.  My nice mail carrier even brought me a lovely lunch after reading one of my very public tales of monetary anguish.  However, nothing has ever touched me more than knowing that the lives of quite a few turkeys were saved by others in a year when I couldn’t afford to do it myself.  Thank you so much to those of you who told me they “adopted” in my name, and thanks to those of you who did so in your own name.

~~~There’s still time to save some more lives from a cruel, miserable ending:  http://www.adoptaturkey.org/

~~~I got a lot of reaction after people read my latest Huffington Post on valuing the recipients of charitable gifts http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lita-smithmines/heartless-about-the-homel_b_776505.html?ref=email_share I received quite a few virtual pats on the back or head, and more than a handful of scathing emails.  My favorite contemptuous correspondence read: Liberals like you try your best to get the country off-message by talking about “people.” The problem isn’t really homelessness, as you know deep down.  The problems are sky high taxes and letting everyone into this country—the damn [slur against foreigners deleted] take the jobs, jobs, jobs!!! So I’m guessing (I didn’t respond) that the bell ringers by the kettles for the Salvation Army are trying to get the country off-message, too? Are soup kitchen and food pantries and homeless shelters all engaged in this giant liberal conspiracy to divert focus, too? 

Happy Anniversary, Lisa & Bryan! Have a great weekend!

LET’S GO RANGERS!
