The new poor in America
The new poor: Baby boomers in the jobless crisis | Need to Know
I hope it "ain't" true, but the reality seems to indicate that the Republican party will win big in this coming election year. At the same time, I am tired of both parties not having the guts to do what is right because of fear from the crazy "Tea-baggers." When did such a small number of crazy-fearmongering-apocalyptic-worshiping-lunatic hijacked truth and reason? Yes, I can understand the anger if the anger was directed at both the Republicans and Democrats for pandering to the big, powerful, and rich Americans, the top 5 percent. If this so-called grassroots movement were electing truly a third party candidates - and Tea-bagger candidates aren't truly third party - then I can see the appeal. But that isn't the case, the Tea-baggers are merely electing the same old Republican agenda which has never been truly implemented - even during Regan's time, there was great tax hike and during W. Bush's time, we had the greatest increase in government bureaucracy. In all honesty, neither of these parties, Republicans nor Democrats, care for the middle class or the poor. But then, the real stupid person is not the person selling us the same old agenda. Nope, the real stupid person is all of us who buy into their message of fear and terror. The Palins and the Becks and the Foxs are the one who hold our country back with their crazy and stupidity narrative. They sell us fear. They sell us hopelessness. They sell us barbarism. Thus, in the end, the real stupid person is us the people for buying into the fearmongering-apocalyptic-lunatic narratives that plague our country. At this rate, I don't want what the so-called "people" want because what they want is irrational-lunatic-racist-divisive-destructive policies. Currently, the so-called "people" are lunatic-bullies. I don't agree with Bill Maher, but he is right to call us, the American people, bullies. Wake-up America! I think don't agree much with Maher's rhetoric but in this case I can't stop saying, "Amen, brother Bill."
