Can't Get No Satisfaction

The US people are unhappy. 72% of us, in fact. Although not necessarily business related, I think the fact that people are unhappy generally stems three things: Iraq, Politics (see Iraq), and their missing houses. Obviously Iraq/Politics are big--everyone wants something different there and that's fine. I've given up worrying about politics. I view politicians (and most lawyers) like this: smart (or rich people) who simply aren't good at anything else. If they were stupid (or poor) they would likely be unemployed simply because they're not good at anything. If they were good at something then they'd be an expert there. Rather than admitting they are not an expert on anything, they get high on their power and blindly rule. This helps no one. I'd rather have Congress "drafted"--send at least a few regular people up there. People who know what it's like to be average. That will help everyone.
