I have not been writing much. Everything I want to
say has been pretty much said by others. The best thing I read in decades was
Putin's rebuke to the United States over its policies in Syria and its claim of
"exceptionalism". I couldn't have said it better myself.
The President of Iran finally wants to negotiate
over nuclear weapons it says it doesn't want and doesn't need. This
administration in Washington is taking a "wait and see" attitude.
What a load of crap that is. The boys in Washington just don't want to piss off
their AIPAC donors.
Ted Cruz is making headlines by trying to filibuster
funding of Obamacare. He's on C-Span making an ass out of himself. Some
Democrats think the Affordable Care and Protection Act is the greatest thing
since sliced bread. In reality, it's a huge compromise to the insurance
companies and a way to get away from single-payer healthcare that most real
progressives wanted in the first place. It's a flawed bill that has more
loopholes than the tax code.
Still, the Republicans want to shut down the
government in order to stop it. This means that people on Social Security, people
in the military and military retirees as well as poor people receiving Medicare
really have to start worrying. These Republicans don't realize that they
represent some of the poorest States in the nation and that their constituents
rely on government services. Let's stop paying politicians if they don't pass
the budget, from the President down. That will wake them up. Let them stop
these payments to people and see how fast they get turned out at the polls.
Speaking of people, I can hardly read Facebook
anymore. If I see one more posting about how good the Democrats are and how rotten
the Republicans are I'm going to need a barf bag. Listen folks, most Democrats
and Republicans suck equally. The Democrats just tell you want to hear and do
the opposite. They all work for their campaign donors and no, not the 5$ and
10$ donors. This country's politics runs on big donor campaign money. That's
the reason we can't get anything done for the average person. We don't have the
money to get them to do our bidding. Simple economics.
Obama wants to fix the World and the poor bastard
can't even fix Detroit. How does he think that makes him look in the eyes of
the World? This is a President that should be on anti-depressants. If I were
Obama I might just go into the Oval Office , close the door and put a shotgun
in my mouth. The World has never seen a bigger loser than Barack Obama. This is
a guy that won the Presidency (twice) and lost his soul.
Most people in this country are working two jobs
with no benefits for slave wages. I saw on the news tonight that many companies
are going to be making products in the US now because wages have gotten too
high in China. We should let these companies build their new factories to
produce here and then go out on strike! That will fix their wagons.
The government talks about cutting everything in
government except for the military. Why do you think that is? There comes a
time when ever-expanding economies just have to contract. That is one of the
premier faults of capitalism. World War II is over, the Cold War is over and
the World has had enough of the United States running roughshod over the rest
of the World (besides spying on everyone). It's time to re-evaluate our
economic system. Seems like the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep
getting poorer. You know the drill.
I'm just here to tell you that you can forget about
the government listening to the will of the people until you get rid of these
Democrats and Republicans. I read today that the disparity between rich and
poor in the United States is worse than it was during the Roman Empire! Keep
hawking for Hillary and rooting for Obama. They'll sell you down the river just
as fast as any Republican.
The American people stopped Obama from launching
another war in the Middle-East. If we all get together again and defend our
common interests we can again cross party lines. There are so many issues that
need to be addressed and the people in Congress and in the Executive Branch are
not going to address them unless you make them. Here is a list of things right
off the top of my head that will change the nation for the better.
1. Institute Public Banking.
2. Medicare for all.
3. Stop Fracking.
4. Stop non-labeled GMO products.
