Almost forgot it's Friday

Hard to believe this week has passed but then again it was a short week workwise.

There really is no use for republicans in this country. They touted "death panels" with health care reform then proceeded to cut Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid. They have no use for the working men and women in this country. Must be the blinding light of the all mighty dollar for which most have never work for a day in their lives. Makes one wonder what would happen if a call to police or fire department went unanswered because it was eliminated. No teacher present when they dropped little Johnny off at school. Or maybe they wouldn't mind when the roads weren't plowed of snow or even maintained. That bridge they cross every day that was built in the 50s should stand for another 50 years without maintenance right? What do they think some magical elves come at night and perform these services?

Has any of their ilk landed up in jail for what they've done to this country? Only one or two from what I'm hearing and they were such low hanging fruit that a public defender fresh out of law school could have gained a conviction. No I think we're going to see a turning point here shortly. America is waking up to the fact that the robbers got off Scott free and are coming back for more loot. Only this time it's for YOUR loot or what little you have left. That in itself would be bad enough but they also want your dignity as well. We have become mere dogs to them but even dogs get a few scraps from the dinner table but not with them.

Carry on and keep your drums upright. Bank fails later.

Only one bank failed this week in Il.

I think that both parties have done more than their share of screwing this country up. And I'm pretty damn sure that there is nothing we can do about it.

Based on my view of the big picture out there I think I should take one last road trip this summer, it may be the last trip I'll ever get to take.

Or maybe I should just go hide somewhere.

If you can figure out what makes them tick, let me know. As BBC says though, it took both parties to get us where we are today.

The two party system is our biggest enemy. They only care about their own interest not the people or doing the right thing.

I just told my wife this morning we have got to get rid of Republicans somehow. What they have planned for our America and the lower classes is worse than horrific.

Your a "remover of nasty thing's" according to your profile, and I must say the last 5 posting's were "nasty" as far as the reality of current. So true on all of them ... and frankly Guy ... there are many American's that dont even see this coming or much of it. As a young man year's back ... I frankly never gave a rat's ass myself about much as far as politic's ... but what we are seeing now is like politic's on steroid's ... and the "right" is on a roll, for sure. All I know is it's now a matter of survival and trying to keep what we do have left. We been milked to the max Guy, aint much left to milk, but I do know that they (GOP) are banking on a complete takeover in the 2012 election's, and they will play the SSI as well, because that is a multi billion dollar potential investment ... or ... a gamble. "Privatization" my man, that's why I focused on that so much ... just because government service's fail and go bankrupt or such, dont mean we still dont need them, and that's the "catch" to this, gvmnt institution's failing ... mean potential privatization of those service's, and what dont generate revenue and taking care of the bottom barrel grunt's is where they will bring in faith based and volunteer's. Bank on it.

This mess is precisely why I never get rid of old Crayolas. I'm sure I can fool someone into believing that the gold crayon is made of real gold.

I hope you're right about a turning point coming. It's way overdue.

"There really is no use for Republicans in this country."

The wealthy, well-connected few find Republicans useful. Much of the time that's all that matters, considering how much money the wealthy few have to throw around.

BBC, I recall NAFTA and Obama taking single-payer health care off the table before the bargaining started, and I can't deny it. Sometimes the imperfect alternative is the best you can do.

Macrum, what makes most of them tick is greed, selfishness, resentment and lust for power and control. A few also get off on kicking a stray dog or homeless person. Other than those things, they're just regular folks.
