Are We 'Depressed' or 'Depressed'?
Professor Hanson weighs in here, noting that just about everyone these days seems extremely depressed. As well we should be; our government, at all levels, is being run by chimpanzees (go ahead and sue me or accuse me of racism. Screw political correctness -- I'm one of the depressed-and-extremely-pissed-off folks the Prof. is talking about!). Wait, that's too generous. Chimpanzees are smarter than Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Rangel, Dodd, Frank, Kerry, Schumer, Clinton, Waters, Waxman, et. al., and by comparison, paragons of civilized and virtuous behavior. Even if chimps do throw feces at one another.
At least when a chimp throws a turd at another chimp, it's genuine crap. Not the manufactured kind like Congress turns out over bonuses to bailed out company execs that they knew about for several months and engineered legislation in order to protect, but which can no longer be defended since it's a political liability.
Anyways, while the Prof is right, I also like this take on things from Powerline.
