Pitchforks, anyone? (Main Street)
Where are the citizens of America? Doesn't anybody notice that our government is just as corrupt as that in Afghanistan? They caught a Afghan politician sneaking across the border with $32 Million dollars IN CASH. (Can you even imagine the extra charges for suitcases to hold it all?) He could give no reason for having it, AND THEY LET HIM KEEP IT. $32 Million dollars of U.S. investments into a country which will NEVER stand on its own. A money pit. As corrupt as Iraq and bleeding us dry. We are borrowing money from China to pad the pockets of thieves in the MidEast.
And now, right here at home, the Republican Party is taking a PUBLIC stance, holding the suffering unemployed hostage (refusing to extend unemployment benefits) unless Congress gives the wealthy the Bush tax cuts -- a mere 700 Billion dollar knife to our throats. And a President who plays ball with these rapists rather than take on the corruption and fight for America. We are hopelessly lost to politicans who think that negotiation means finding the loophole to blackmail each other into actions that will pad their pockets with extraordinary wealth.
I HAVE HAD IT. It is time that we take to the streets, pitchforks and burning torches. Frankenstein's monster, American Greed, has been loosed and we need to kill it in order to protect ourselves and our children from the total destruction of the finest country on earth. I am disheartened beyond belief. The first President I've believed in, since Kennedy, has turned out to be a pantywaist, a pawn for the rich and corrupt politicans who have been running D.C. for over a decade. Our first African American President who promised Democratic CHANGE and has done watered down versions with the excuse that this is how Washington works.
Well, I'm becoming an Independent before the next election. I will NOT support either party, Obama, or this philosophy. Give me back Howard Dean. Nancy Pelosi. Give me a Liberal, a Progressive, an adult who is unafraid.
Goddammit, give me a pitchfork.
