I hear that! Wouldn't that be great? A switch that could be flipped and everyone would just 'get it'... Maybe we can talk Romney into asking his
friend at Staples to tell us who made the 'Easy' button for them! haha.
It is sad and I had been holding out hope for a turn-around soon, but it looks hopeless in that regard. I used to tell a friend, who recently passed
away, that things can go no where but up from here - that was 3 years ago and I was wrong, but he wasn't. He would always say that things will get
even worse and we will probably never see USA at heights enjoyed pre-2000.
I love technology, but it is a major source for our woes. Everyone, everywhere has their face buried into a tech device during the majority of waking
hours. A lot of families make sure everyone has the tech devices they want and those devices become obsolete as soon as you can figure out how to use
After a few months, or less in some cases, the devices are old news and a new version is available. Of course, everyone has to have the latest and
greatest tech toy, so hundreds to thousands of dollars are spent every 4-6 months to stay on the cutting edge of social and personal media devices.
The old tech gets trashed for the most part and most is not recycled. So we are sending all our money to these tech companies and not recouping any of
it when we upgrade to new gadgets. The tech companies are amassing incredible wealth, while the average consumer is becoming less and less financially
Anyway, sorry for bouncing off-topic here. I really just meant to say that people are like zombies, programmed with corporate and federal government
propaganda from the devices that rule their world. Those who used to be aware have fallen asleep, but are the ones who are most likely to snap out of
it and see what's been happening around them during their tech slumber.
The kids may never become awake and aware, since they do not know any different way of life, there are not enough people awake to bring them to their
senses, and their parents are, in-large, just as absorbed as they are..
If knowing the Obama administration hid crucial information, just long enough to complete his campaign and election process, doesn't punch people in
the nose with smelling salts, nothing will.
Surely even the most die-hard supporters can see what he and his administration just did to all of us. This should make every single USA citizen sick
to their stomach and should make us all feel like we have been victimized by a con-artist.
Imagine I came to your house to estimate installation of hardwood floors and asnwer your questions. You tell me you want the floors installed in 10
days (election day), then you ask me if my hardwood has any issues (anything other than Benghazi we should know about?) and I say, 'No' (Benghazi
was isolated and the same mistakes won't be made again and a promise of transparency) .
A couple days pass and I notice a nasty strain of mold has infected my hardwood stock (the drone strike occurs), but, instead of telling you, I just
stay quiet. I install the floors and collect payment (re-elected POTUS). A couple days later you learn that I knew about a terrible mold problem in my
shop and in the hardwood that is now nailed to your floors (the drone strike is revealed).
To make matters worse, your family has awesomely terrible allergies (benghazi) and this mold (drone strike) could literally kill you or your families
(it could sway your vote).
Would you be upset at me for treating you this way? After-all, it is your money that keeps my business open (your taxes)
