Mayday Mayday Mayday!

General world wide strike called for today. "No work, no school... don't bank, don't buy" is the order of the day. Well then that's an average day for me anymore. There's no work. I don't attend school (have all the education and certifications I can handle). I only bank once a week usually Friday or Saturday. And I only go to the store once every week or two for food. Gas I get once a month. Got to slow down on the beans. So we shall see what the day brings.

What is the protest for? What do you have? A brief list.
The gradual lack of buying power. The increase in fees for just about everything. The lack of jobs. The lack of health care. Home foreclosures. Being underwater in a home. Illegal evictions. Banks that aren't prosecuted for the fraud. Politicians that don't give a crap. Tax evading billionaires. Pollution. Unnecessary invasive medical procedures. Funding cuts. Tuition increases. Corporations that think workers can work for next to nothing. Corporations that don't pay any taxes. That irritating call center that doesn't know anything about the product. Calling information when it's located out of state and doesn't know a thing about your area. And lastly that woman that keeps bringing her dog to crap on my lawn.

There is that enough or should I continue? How about you what's your beef because today is the day to get it off your chest?

Beef? I knew this post was a secret advert for the USDA. I've no beefs, uh, we had a slight weapons malfunction, but uh, everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?

Good list, Demeur. I'll add that godawful citibank credit card/American Airlines commercial that comes on MSNBC every evening with volume four times louder than the program. That's agains the law now, but if it's the financial industry, anything goes.
