YOU are entitled to the "fruits" of your labor about as much as WE were!!!
after you get done paying for the politicians salaries, the lobbyists winnings, the payrolll of the federal, state, and local governments, the
teachers, the school board, the bus drivers, the foreign aide to the world, the special interest projects, the business incentives and tax breaks
(still wonder if that was the funding that managed to get so many jobs off shore during the bush administration!), then add the elderly, the
handicapped, the single mothers, the alchoholic fathers, the drug addicts the prisoners, not to mention the kids and the cost of running the snotty
nosed darlings to the doctor to be told they have a cold!!! ohh......and let's not forget about the BAILOUTS!
well, after all that is taken out....you are left with what your are left with....while your tax dollars may be going to a family who, through your
kind help is able to get their kid braces, a decent hud standard home, and more than enough food for them to sell some to buy the booze, well, guess
what....you may find yourself with a sick wife, a sick child in need of the healthcare, with no money for it, your home may have been rejected by hud
as not meeting standards but know it's all you can afford, and well, you may find that $30 of food will have to get you through the week.....
welcome to the world, such as it is...
tell ya what, I'LL lay aside my claim to my social security and other gov't promised benefits when they admit that it was all a scam, that it was
THEY that screwed up, and well, they decide to make across the board cuts down to what their expected (with no cooked books!!) revenues are!!
otherwise, they are gonna just keep on spending above THEIR MEANS, and well, it will just mean that as you kids are struggling to pay more and more
for their insanities, you are also going to find yourselves having to support your elderly family members along with yourselves, with less income
(because believe me, these $100,000+ a year salaries WOULD NOT be near that much if everybody in this society were forced to live within their
income!!! there would be a heck of alot LESS spending forcing the prices down to a level that the people could spend, or the companies would be going
out of business!
we are at the end of the road! they can't tax more, you can't get blood out of a stone, and they can't cut the spending, cause that's the only
money flowing through the system! can't raise interest rates, everyone owes too much!! can't print more money, sell more debt.....the dollar will
just get more worthless and the inflation will just make things oh so much worse!!
may I suggest what was suggested to some of us when we tried to tell people that things were getting out of hand about 4 years ago...
GO TAKE A PROZAC!!! it will make the world seem so much more pleasant!
at least for awhile!!
oh, and go visit china, or india, take a good look at what the companies are doing to their ecology! then, do a little research into what they are
putting into your products...find out the source!! taxes, high wages??? you should add the cost of cleaning up their toxic waste to the list too!!
and then, come back and tell me that you would rather live in one of those cesspools that they are creating in these other country, enjoy you low
taxes and pathetic wages! heck you ipod was probably made with child labor!
ya, your lives would have been so much better if you had started working when you were ten so the rest of your family could have a meal every day
instead of going to school, having clean water to drink and bathe in, and all the other goodies you grew up with!
