THE UNITED STATES IS A POVERTY STATE

In Uncategorized on November 19, 2010 at 10:48 AM

It seems as though the U.S. is one of the very few industrial or developed nations where poverty is allowed to exist as a part of federal budget strategy.  You won’t find this policy in Japan, Western Europe and even China is closing their poverty gap. 

However, lawmakers in the U.S. see poverty as just another byproduct of capitalism or democracy.  Almost as if these incompetent dolts are saying… if the free market can’t save you, you cannot be saved… what a load of crap.  Unfortunately we have the best government money can buy and when that is allowed to happen apathy for the constituents  they claim to represent will propagate like mold on Gorgonzola. 

Unbelievably the United States Congress is considering the halting of unemployment insurance extensions.  They have zero sympathy for those American’s whose world has been turned upside down by home values plummeting, banks failing, while their jobs are leaving the country for cheaper labor in third world Mother Earth, and the capper is – it was all caused by their ridiculous handling of the government!  Even one of their “buddah like” economic geniuses Milton Friedman had this to say about unemployment:

“The Great Depression, like most other periods of severe unemployment, was produced by government mismanagement rather than by any inherent instability of the private economy”

It’s time we stood up for our rights (unemployment is not an entitlement it is insurance in case these bozo’s screw us) and tell the Congress “STOP BLAMING THE CITIZENRY AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN FISCAL MESS!”

We can only do that by contacting them directly.  They will listen because hey if they don’t get your vote they won’t be able to continue milking the Corporate gravy train that IS the government.
