What a shameful day for this country And its deluded people…
We are now all diminished in the eyes of morality So eager for bargains as to be willing to kill for them
On crappy merchandise no one needs I like a good deal as much as anyone, but I’m not about to stand outside a Wal-Mart all night And I’m not about to take part in a mob mentality just to save a few hundred dollars
Look close America Don’t you DARE look away This is blood on your hands And feet
Shame on you all Especially you Wal-Mart For planting the seeds of GREED That has now grown to MURDER By a MOB of mentally ill bargain hunters
Yes I said mentally Ill Greed is a sickness It breeds jealousy, hate And Malcontent Americans are infected with it
Trickle down economy? Looks like it has trickled UP to me
And flown right out the window
And now I suppose you want me to pay for it And my children too And my Grandchildren too And my great grand children too... ... ...
I'm sorry Ronald Regan But the curtain has fallen And you have no cloths You never did It was all "backstage wardrobe" You were just a naked old fool.
I'm not really "for" wasteful government However
Handing all of the money over to the richest people, because they presumably know what best to do with it, doesn’t seem to be working.
Seeing that we have a population of over 300,000,000 people In fifty states and a handful of possessions That we have a ten trillion dollar economy We are trying to interface with a number of complex emerging foreign economies And act as the primary defense of the “free” world...
It’s a big county With big problems
Yes I want a big government
Not an inefficient one
But one with the scope and depth, necessary to protect our rights and see to our collective interests.
Let us be clear on this Deregulation, for the most part Has NOT worked.
I’m sorry too, John McCain You were the deregulation maverick guru And now you want to “rein in” the corruption on Wall Street? ROTFLMAOCOPTER! (as my son would say)
I’m asking all, of my fellow Americans To join me In becoming more active in government WE are the people The government is supposed to be Of the people, for the people and by the people U.S. = Us
I am the Accidental Taoist
A child of the sixties who has not forgotten the promise of those days.
But unlike so many people my age - I remember all the stuff that has gone down since then...
I believe in earth first - we have no other place to go.
