Good Morning!

I watched George Soros on Bill Moyer this morning. He explains what must be done to deal with the financial mess. It is the end of an era. We have been consuming more than we produce. We can't predict the future because the future depends on how we react to what is happening now. We need a government that responds. We need a social contract. We can do three things. 1. Reduce foreclosures. 2. Recapitalize the banks. 3. Work on a better world order.

The only ideology that is not false is to recognize that human constructs have a flaw. We need oversight.

Kathleen Hall Jamiesen was also on the show. She said about McPain that "to inpugn the integrity of someone running for president is unacceptable. These charges are out of bounds."

Bill Moyers said we should check our local listings for two shows coming up. One is Soldiers of Conscience, which presents eight soldiers, four on each side of the issue of war, and the other is Torturing Democracy, about what the Bush administration has done as to authorizing and encouraging torture. It looks brutal to watch and we must view what we allowed to be done with our tax dollars and in our name.

Also, I thought Frank Rich said it well this morning. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/12/opinion/12rich.html?th&emc=th
