The American public is like a dog
a: The American public ~
b: a dog
What: "The American public is like a dog that's been kicked one too many times. The cascade of failures, the massive job loss, and the huge declines in home equity, have altered sentiment, psychology and actual behavior. Each time there's a new trauma - a month in which there is no jobs growth brinksmanship that almost results in default, a downgrade by Standard & Poor's, a damaging hurricane - Americans suffer flashbacks."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
