What are you dealing with right now? : I mainly have angst.
My story: What do i have to do to get all these people to just do what I say?
Pour it all out. Everything. You may even feel better for it...
It's not as though I am asking a lot. A little bit of austerity here, some unemployment there... A generation or two of penury for the odd spendthrift nation. Maybe the occasional bout of oppression of the masses. It's not as if they don't deserve it. And, it's not as if the poor have had it all that good over the centuries, so just a little bit less in their bellies each day isn't going to be noticed all that much, is it?
A good dose of misery will help a country to see that the world looks pretty awful from the bottom of a well. I just want to help people to help themselves. If they are stupid enough to fall down that well (and let's face it, some of these Southern European slackers jumped down that well of their own free will) then they can't expect me to just throw them a rope without at least wanting a credit card imprint first, can they? It's not as if I'm about to send in the troops or take over their country or anything.
Why can't these people see that I only want to do what is best for them. Nobody likes taking their medicine but we all know that you are better of if you do, so I'm just asking the people who have failed financially to come up with more money. What's so demanding about that?
What really irks are the complaints from the whining dogs in my own country, who can't see that I'm the best poker player on the planet. Why would you vote for anyone else? Why would anyone in Germany complain, when I've managed to keep the entire world's financial system on the brink of disaster for years - to the point that those foreign suckers are actually PAYING Germany to keep their cash! Huh! I'd like to see how many of my opposition could do that and continue to look as upright and indignant as I do.
AND I've managed to keep a few ailing industries in business. Mind you, it has cost more to allow those voters to keep their jobs than it would have to provide them all with a guaranteed income for the rest of their lives. The things I have had to do to keep people happy. And the incompetents still don't love me!
Shit, I'm the most powerful woman in the world. What do I have to do to-just-be-loved?
How often are you gripped with angst, despair or most horribly, both? Daily
