Wake Up America!
I have to admit that I'm really pissed off. It's no longer just being angry about the situation in Washington; it's about what's happening to America. This country is failing. People are unemployed,and we are neglecting the poor and homeless. What's happening here? Where is the government when it comes to protecting the welfare of the people? Why are so many crazies in the House and Senate? 

I have to admit that I'm really pissed off. It's no longer just being angry about the situation in talking about my Senators;   Jim DeMint and Bang-Bang Lindsey Graham who used to be sane. The South Carolina Senators do not represent me. I talk to a lot of people who used to be Republicans. They are ashamed of their party. Don't count on South Carolina voters to vote for another crazy Republican.

They won't vote for Democrats either. Most people are sick to death of all partisan crap that comes out of Washington. The federal government doesn't understand what's happening in this country they only care about who feeds them. Both parties are supported by corporate contributions. The days of representative democracy are over in America. We the people who don't live in the upper 10% of the income bracket don't stand a chance. We have nobody who really can do anything in Washington when most of the legislators are wards of the corporate world.

Voting in America is a bad joke. Maybe local elections are legit, but Federal elections are a set-up sham to put in the best person that can provide corporate income. A corporation is not a person and does not deserve person-hood. If you examine the corporate model of any large corporation, most could be diagnosed as sociopaths, with interest not in community or the people working for them (except those at the top), with no other interest but the bottom line. That is no way to run a country. Some of these despicable psychopathic Defense Industries would love to have a big war with Russia or China? WTF?

Sorry about the language but I'm extremely irate right now. I think that the mess in this country is coming to a head. There are so many people that are confused and angry in this country as they watch the wealthiest 10% make windfall profits while the middle class lost an average of $2,000 a year in wages.

States are trying to bust up unions like that shark Walker who is a puppy hound of the Koch Brothers. The Postal Service is defying its Union and attempting to lay off 35,000 workers. Sorry, but they won't beat that union. This too could get ugly. Remember the phrase "Going Postal"? Just watch the fireworks from that union. They won't surrender quietly; you can take that to the bank.

Where is the media coverage of the Wall Street protest? That in itself shows that the mass media is government controlled. Wait until October 6th, a million or more people will be there and they will have to cover the event. I'll be there to take video for Op-Ed News, Dandelion Salad and The Real News Network. I'll ask Rob Kall for a press pass. Watch me get arrested, press pass or not. This is just a screed, but I really feel that this country is ready to blow. There are so many issues that need addressing. We need to stop all of these wars. We really need to stop killing people in other (Muslim) countries. We need to stop executing people on bogus evidence that was engineered by the District Attorney that paid people to testify against Troy Davis who was executed in Georgia.

Not only executions, but incarceration has gone from 87,369 to 129,336 from 2000 to 2009. That's incredible. The private corporate prison system is making big bucks on inmates. We have more of our population incarcerated than any other country on Earth!

Rank      Country/Entity Prisoners per   100,000

1                United States   743        

2                Russia 577        

3                U.S. Virgin Islands           561        

4                Saint Kitts and Nevis      551        

5                Rwanda               545        

6                Georgia               537        

7                Palau    478
