Off the top of my head, I have no real solutions.
I think most people acknowledge there is a real problem, and it’s getting worse by the day (unless you’re a corporate fat cat with
millions/billions of bucks stashed in offshore tax shelters). So, what’s the solution? What do we do about it? Most of us jump up and down,
screaming and hollering, pointing fingers all over the place, and then go to the polls and re-elect the same damned political hacks that got us into
this mess in the first place. And, without skipping a beat, the cycle starts all over again. Time after time after time...
With all this screaming and jumping, pointing of fingers, and hiring bad help going on, we seem to think we’ve washed our hands of all
responsibility for this train wreck. It’s not “our” fault we’re sinking in the quicksand, it’s “their” fault. It’s always “their
fault”. It’s those damned Democrats, or those ruthless Republicans making our lives miserable and sucking the life force out of us. After all, we
did our patriotic duty and voted straight party line all the way down. So, it’s obviously those clowns in the other party at fault for this
Meanwhile, the corporate empire and their congressional henchmen go about the business of selling out America, and it’s people, to the highest
bidder. All the while we sit back eating Cheetos and inhaling our favorite reality TV shows. For a lot of us reality is based on Duck Dynasty, Mafia
Wives, Mayberry RFD and MSM news.
IDK, but I’m more convinced every day that until we all take a good, long look in the mirror and place the blame where it’s due, we’re heading
for some very troubled times. As bad as things seem today, it can (and will) get a whole lot worse if we continue down the road we’re on.
Like I said, I have no solutions. All I do know is, we deserve what we ask (vote) for...
