A message for congress
Sorry for the light posting but life has a way of interfering with such things.
To those who proport to make our laws (or not) I must wonder exactly what drugs they have been taking. They vote against any decent thing while protecting the very top of the heap. At this rate we'll be a third world country in short order. Estimates have it that 8000 more will be hitting the unemployment lines in the state come January. And once again we hear not one peep from the Tea Party. This Christmas gift to the wealthy is after all borrowed money. But here's the truly scary part of it. When the bill starts coming due who do you think gets stuck with it? Keep your eyes pealed as to what rethuglicans do come January when they take the reigns. Raygoon was known as the slasher because he cut many of the safety nets. You ain't seen nothing yet. With a 2% shortfall to Social Security the difference will have to be made up somewhere. Cuts to retirees? Or just kick a few more disabled to the curb because after all they're not really people.
If I could sell my place and head somewhere else I'd be out of here in a New York minute but with yet another foreclosure in the neighborhood and I'm sensing one more after that making a total of 5 when all is said and done, the likelihood of that is slim to none.
Bank fails later as usual.
So to congress I say hang up the bong, extinguish the joint and for God's sake dump the white powder. Sober up and get busy doing the right thing for once.
