DESTROYING DEMOCRACY III
While we are debating health care reform, we are mostly oblivious to the goings on in the rest of the world that foretell our own path, probably. We get our news form comedians, from Jon Stewart or Al Franken, from Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck, just who ever we thin agrees with our own point of view, that is if we even do pay attention to the news at all. Look again, the unrest in France, in Greece, in England, in Moscow, in Iceland, due to the "conservative" (what does that ever mean?) policies and the financial fiasco of the recent past. Could we not just get lucky? Are we not immune?
As I said after the markets fell in 2000, that the poor will have to work hard to make up the difference in the market values lost. We today face the same problem, only in 2000 the market value lost was in just trillions, now it is hundreds of trillions and some one has to make up the difference. If you have your eyes open you are seeing it happen, the budget cuts, and tax increases that you see today at the local and the state levels are about to hit the national, federal budgets with decreases in social security, medicare, medicaid, education all but the defense, intelligence and tax collections.
As the conservatives saying it is all Obama, and millions looking for someone to blame their misery on, it is easy to point fingers at the top chair. But we have all been a party to our own demise, we should have known it was coming, and should have been prepared, I had been warning before Obama ever took the seat.
LIFE IS A GAME OF CONNECT THE DOTS, IF YOU DON'T CONNECT ALL THE DOTS OR DON'T CONNECT THEM IN THE RIGHT ORDER YOU NEVER GET THE PICTURE
