I was slightly annoyed last night when my regular TV viewing was interrupted with the “special report” in which Bush chose to outline the reasons our economy is in trouble. I will remind you, this is the same guy that in February said we weren’t in a recession we were in a “slowdown.”
Maybe I don’t understand the difference in those two terms or how you go to a “slowdown” to a 700 billion dollar bailout in 8 months?
Maybe the bigger question is where the fuck has he been living the past two years? I don’t know anyone without financial woes and shrinking paychecks. People are out of work, juggling bills, letting some go to feed their kids. I already downsized my house and I still struggle every pay day. I volunteer at my church once a month to feed the homeless. At the beginning of the year, there were maybe 25 people. This last weekend they served over 120. Before you continue to have a vision of the homeless as simply drugged up and lazy, I will tell you that there are former military and women with children in there everytime. Regular people that look no different than you and I. It is a tragedy what is happening in what used to be the greatest nation on the planet.
AND NOW we can’t get through a bill funding soldiers pay AND we are reassigning troops to work at home to scare the shit out of civilians but its perfectly acceptable to bail out rich gamblers who shot their wad on Wall Street and you and I have to clean up the streets?
Fuck that. If another Republican wins this election cycle, I am moving out of the country. I am embarrassed to see the priorities the Administration feels are important and watching regularly ordinary people collapse under the weight of what is happening to them.
NOTE TO THE WORLD: All Americans are not as stupid as the ones running our country. Just half of them are.
Don’t blame me, I vote a straight Democratic ticket every fucking time
Oh yeah, let’s not forget Too-Many-Houses-McCain can’t show up for a debate because he is now suddenly overcome with the plight of people like me.
If you believe that, I have some property to sell you in Arizona.
