Sorry but I must say the Ornery Bastard does a much better job at blowing off at seam than I ever could. I think his rants are enhanced with copious amounts of beer and Jack Danials. The reason I bring the whole subject up is that I went to the job boards this morning only to get time after time the following message: 'Sorry no jobs found".
The ruling party in Afghanistan live in multi million dollar compounds that we paid for and contune to finance. But actually most of them don't even live there. They rent out these walled and armed guarded villas and aren't even in the country. They don't want us to leave because they know this welfare for the rich will end.
Then there's the billions of dollars pumped into Iraq each month and we know most of it is being skimmed as our military gets charged $100 for a load of laundry. Only to find out that that load was washed in polluted water and needs to be cleaned again. Soldiers drinking and showering with water that's unfit for human consumption.
More bailouts for Wall Street in the form of limp rules that do nothing to change the game. No rule changes for oil, gas and mining companies. I wouldn't expect anything to change until after the midterm elections. Wouldn't want to piss off your donors now would we?
Insurance companies just had or will soon have buckets money thrown at them in the form of new patients or should I say premiums. I'm sure their lawyers are busy looking for all the loopholes in droping all but the most healthy.
All this money going out the door for the wealthy and well connected but nothing for actual jobs for our citizens. We're told we're lazy and we don't want to work. If that were true then what the hell do these guys think that we were doing the last twenty years, sitting on the couch eating bon bons? And I'd like to see one of these over the hill lizzard lipped nerds pick up a jack hammer and bust their ass. I'd bet they wouldn't make it 20 minutes. Yet they expect people that do to do it into their 70s.
Keep your drums upright or for all I care kick them over. It doesn't seem to matter to BP.
