Are we really victims in all of this; aren't we all complicit in the grand scheme? We all want the same things those billionaires have and isn't
that why we allowed ourselves to get fat and lazy here in America? I mean that literally and figuratively. We divide into parties easily because we
all want to protect what we have so we join a "gang" to protect us.
We must have been in a trance to sign those ARMs; we were proud of our credit scores and our credit limits, and a car for him and one for her....maybe
one for the kid too. We wanted bigger and better, faster, easier, and on and on. We complain about being too busy to have done anything about it all
these years, yet WE 40, 50, 60 somethings knew deep, deep down something was wrong. It was the Kennedy assassination, it was Kent State, it was the
Viet Nam war...and we buried those things because we were "too busy" to do anything about it. Of course we were, we needed stuff.
It wasn't always a damn recession in my lifetime...there was boom not long ago! What did you do with the money? Who did you hire? Did you chase the
American Dream, or did you get stuff?
Im not sure if it's a grand design or gross mis-management. One thing that was born in America is a lack of respect for elders, and thus, for
experience. Our grandfathers knew what work was, how to save, how to spare, and about discipline. The Great Depression taught them much about life
which the post- war era quickly discarded in the fifties an sixties. By 1970...we were flying solo. Screw you mom and dad.
We want so badly to sound like victims, but instead we sound pathetic, like a failed child blaming the principal for squandering the opportunity of an
WE are the government, WE are the business, WE are the politics, WE are the People of this Nation in good and bad, boom to bust....Hey, lets blame the
government. Dammit Who Broke my Couuntry?
I wish I could say what I really wanted to say, but time is up.
There never was a WAR...there were a multitude of small battles no one ever showed up to fight...busy, watching TV. I'll watch it on TV and we'll
complain about together at work tomorow. Gee, I hope my gang leader does something about it, forgetting that He, like you and I, was just a man, one
WE all failed...United...sorry if you don't think so.
Hopefully you can still hear your grandparents wisdom; you're gonna need it.
So you really think people are gonna show up for the revolution??????
FAT CHANCE....I mean that literally and figuratively.
