Don't be so sure... No Job is secure
Yeah my friend at Honeywell was just told her Dept was being relocated to Mexicali. Therefore, she essentially was laid off like many INTEL
employees here. Things are really getting tough and for IBM to say crap like that, I mean who do they think they are kidding.
Then I turn on the TV and I have to sit through some stupid news program about how these poor poor rich bastards are suffering because "stupid tax
payers" can't understand that the Bonus's they took out of the bailout was money they were depending on.
In every country where they are doing this bailout idea I keep seeing the same thing. Hearings of that country or the PTB grilling Bankers asking
what were they thinking and the bankers invariably say,,
"mistakes were made”.
Mistakes? Mistakes MY BUTT!
They knew damn well they could take that money and that Government does nothing about it. Why would they when it is the same thing our elected
officials keep saying but do anyway. They have completely blown 80 Billion of the recovery package and said "mistakes were made" yet no one knows
what happened or who to blame. They have been talking about how Americans are suffering but have voted themselves a $9,500 dollar raise and just in
time to get it passed before the Presidents freeze on salaries for these same "good for nothing but what they can steal from us", clowns in
"This time we ill be installing more oversight more oversight more oversight. How about WE start doing our OWN oversight and say we have had it
with these rich fat cats who piss all over us and VOTE every single one of them OUT of office. People like TED Kennedy! GET OUT RETIRE for Pete’s
sake! He is near brain dead walking around with a brain tumor having seizures but does he step down?
As for Obama, jeez if I have to hear about how he inherited this problem from the past eight years one more time I am going to throw up.
Ya knew what you were getting when you were running for the office you did not have the experience to qualify for in the first place. You knew when
you were taking hundreds of thousands in campaign funds from Fannie and Freddie in exchange for favors to shut down any bill to tighten them up along
with your finance manager Franklin Raines and Global Economy Crusher with a crush on young boys Barney Frank.
You wanted to be where the buck stops but that doesn't mean where the money is supposed to end up. It means where the blame should go.
That means whether the congress that holds the purse strings or not can maneuver an 11 billion dollar surplus while Newt Gingrich hits the gavel to
the table cutting Government spending; it is BILL Clinton who ends up getting the credit. Whether the Pelosi brags about not passing any more
legislation for another 78 Billion for Iraq and they renege, it is Bush who gets the blame but Bush is gone now and you knew about this crap before
you were elected Mr. Obama.
All I have seen is another long winded speech about how Americans are suffering AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND they are expecting our help, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAND How
Nov 4th the people have spoken AAAAAAAAAAAAAND they asked for change, Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand we have to deliver. How about we deliver yet another message
brought about by voter rage and THIS time it not be the media who tells us whose vas defrens they swing from or which party we sweep in next because
it isn't the party or the rich media moguls like Oprah, who ultimately can make changes to this country and the kind we keep getting this piss poor a
result from our elected officials.
It is US!
We can vote every single last incumbent OUT office and we can show the same resolve for getting the vote out as acorn without all the Mickey Mouse
voters. We can purge the entire house and senate clean of every one of you Washington insiders talking out both sides of your damn mouths and send a
completely new breed of rookies with no lobbyists or good ole boys to tell them how it "really is" or whom they "really work for".
They will not have anyone left there to ask how this is done or that is decided. All they will have is each other like the blind leading the blind
but no less effective than we have now where the rich and powerful lead the greedy and corrupt and we are left blind and in the dark.
We don't want to hear this garbage about Obama is mad now he is shifting into campaign mode as if giving that redundant speech from his playbook is
going to get the job done.
We do not want to HEAR about accountability Mr. Obama,
We WANT TO SEE IT!
We want to see HEADS ROLL!
WE want to see people GO TO JAIL!
We want to see CHANGE we can believe in, NOT change so incompetent we can't believe it but more than that Mr. Obama,,, WE WANT TO SEE IMPROVEMENT!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND if you and the boys in the house and senate can't do that and you don't have the honesty, guts and integrity to step
down thinking you have done nothing wrong like Bush, Barney, and Blago,
Then WE will come back to the polls and do something we have never done before.
We will come UNITED not as an Obama hypnotized Zombie's muttering the mantra "yes we can" yes we can" or some neo con nin com poop saying "stay
the course, stay the course".
We will come as a nation of the people who have had ENOUGH! A nation of people who won't vote for our man or woman, Republican or Democrat ut an
Nation of people to VOTE AGAINST anyone who IS currently in office as a man or a woman posing as a Republican or a Democrat because it really doesn't
matter anymore and oh By the way,,,
Yes We Can and Yes We Will!
If we don't see you clowns getting your act together NOW, you will see us come enmasse, UNITED in purpose and in deed so full of voter outrage it
won't matter WHO Fox or CNN says is their sweetheart. We will vote as a Nation by the people and FOR the people with an axe to grind for those who
continue to insult our intelligence, finance their flights of fancy by stealing our grand children’s future. You will ALL be gone, ASTA la Vista!
Babay! An all new house and senate without the deep and entrenched constituency accepting bribes that are legal as long as they are called
No, these rookies would have no bad examples to follow and the only Job Policy manual they will have to find out how this country works and what they
are supposed to do, won't be other corrupted congressmen and woman but what they SHOULD be using and using by the book all along.
The United States Consitution.
You might think it won't happen, that we won't fire every single last one of you, but that is what they said about Americans ever voting a Black
Person in as President of the United States.
YOU ain't seen NOTHIN yet if you think we are going to allow the Government and the rest of you bums in office, to continue to think,
this is a Nation about you people,
taking from all of us people
to bail out the rich people,
You're dead wrong
