I’m very disappointed, so disappointed that I am taking a break from politics. I’m almost to the point where I am about to give up. Nothing makes sense anymore and I see the fruitless efforts of people out there – including myself - who campaign, sign petitions, call Congress, go to protests and still nothing changes.
It really doesn’t matter how right your cause is, how many people support it and how beneficial it will be for the country. Whatever it is, it’s useless unless the fat bureaucrats in Congress and their masters – Wall Street, the Koch Brothers, Big oil, etc. – happen to agree with whatever you are fighting for. The chances that your causes are in synchronicity with theirs are basically non-existent.
Government is corrupt and they are not serving the people of this country. It seems that they are diligently working at crushing the middle class, oppressing the working class and if they could, if it was possible, they would eliminate the poor once and for all who they see as nothing but maggots, parasites that do not deserve to be alive to begin with.
I am fed up with what’s transpiring against women in every state of this nation. This unreasonable obsession with vaginas and controlling women’s right to decide for herself what’s best for her own life. I’m sickened about a handful of retrogrades, covering their actions under false religiosity, taken over the politics of this nation; they have crept into our lives, disrupting and destroying everything that we have fought so hard for such a long time.
I am repulse at the fact that if a woman or a man gets caught stealing a pack of meat to feed their children, they will be apprehended and possibly do time, even if it is a couple of days and, of course, will have a criminal record and pay a fine. However, those in Wall Street, the ones that crushed our economy and screwed everyone in the process not only are not going to jail, the government gave them money. No criminal record, no jail time and no fine to pay! They’re still going about their business and we have to hear them complaining about too much regulation! If the government is to be fair they either have to forgive those stealing money or food to survive, hand them some money so they can get back to their feet and let them be or, everyone gets the same treatment… everyone, especially those son of bitches that had all they could ever dream of having and still stole from those that were trying to survive… but no, no one touches big money.
I can’t believe that the airports got de-sequestered, that shouldn’t be and the President shouldn’t have allowed it. The whole country, those that need it the most are suffering the consequences of the sequester… but they have to endure it because a bunch of narcissists, filthy rich, son of bitches in Congress do not want to put an end to the sequester, only to the part of the sequester that affects them personally, the rest of us can go to hell.
The President, in order to end the sequester, placed the seniors and the poor under the bus when he agreed to make cuts to “entitlements” such as social security, which by the way, it is not part of the budget or the economy or an entitlement. The government has placed not one single penny in the social security fund; all of us have paid into it and many presidents – Democrats and Republicans alike – have taken money out of it to balance the books but none of them ever paid back the money they used. We keep increasing the defense budget to numbers many countries wish they had as their GDP, an obscene amount but they are claiming that social security is going broke and cannot be sustained, perhaps if they stop increasing the damn defense budget and return the money with interest back to the social security fund it would not be in the mess it is now.
So, let’s applaud the rich. Let’s continue giving them incentives to create jobs that never get created, at least not in these shores. They want to drill and contaminate our environment? Let them! Let’s give them a hand when they find themselves in deep shit because of their abuses and recklessness. Let’s throw anyone and everyone that doesn’t have an income above $100,000 under the bus, after all… we are not the ones filling their pockets with money, the rich is and Congress has sold their soul to them a long time ago and nothing we can say or do will ever change it.
