I'm sick of waiting, I want eventually to be NOW, lol. How great it would be for the masses to drag these robber barrons and their corrupt government lapdogs that have destroyed our countries into the streets and put their severed heads on pikes on Wall St. Anybody here who has dealt with pretty much ANY financial institution or business knows that they will GLADLY take your last dollar and let your children starve, while the CEO wipes his arse with it.

What if our minds have been deluded and preoccupied with material things that our ‘opinions’ and ‘belief systems’ have no literal relevance to anything other than the meaningless products that we buy?
Are we free because we have our own homes as opposed to being locked behind bars?
Perhaps, but let me ask you: what good is a ‘home’ if you’re never there? Being shackled to a 30 year mortgage that’s been refinanced twice equates to working sun up to sun down. That leaves little or no energy left to enjoy it or your family.
Are we free because we can vote?
