It sounds like some weird paranoia sci fi movie of the Cold War. We've fallen asleep and have awakened into the reality of a Twilight Zone episode where our rights and freedoms have become obsolete due to companies needing to show profit. BUT it is reality, and we are made to believe that people trying to warn us are the crazy ones. The true insanity is sitting down and not doing shit. We have been brainwashed to believe that social services and our infrastructure must suffer in order to "balance the budget", meanwhile we are paying banks and collection agencies to collect student loans and taxes from people that can't afford to pay. So we throw them in jails OWNED by the banks that own the collection agencies. The world has truly gone mad. Our once great country is becoming a joke where the very rich can get away with whatever they want while everyone else is pitted against each other to fight for the scraps. People used to own land because it had value and that value throughout history never went down... now surprise that land is worthless (or so we are told) and the only way to get any money for it is to sell rights to the frackers who pollute our waters and air with their fracking materials. People sit and remain silent but they can call and vote for the latest American Idol. Look at the Occupy movement and compare it to the Right Winged homogeneous Tea Party... we can sit by and watch Occupiers get peppered sprayed and be represented by ALL RACES, RELIGIONS, SEXES AND SEXUAL ORIENTATIONS, BUT the Tea Partiers are never harassed by the police, the press or the government because if you look at them, they are vastly white, middle class, Right Winged Christians, who sold their religion out for 30 pieces of silver and a pipe dream that THEY were the selected few. They can forget the whole "love thy neighbor..." and "Give unto Caesar that which is Caesar's" but they will wave flags and demand a bigger war effort to wipe out innocent Muslims in a country half way around the world that costs more in 1 week than EVERY SOCIAL PROGRAM COMBINED COSTS IN A YEAR. They will bitch about education, they had THEIR FREE education and CHEAP student loans, WHY SHOULD THEY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PASSING IT ON... WHY THAT JUST ISN'T CHRISTIAN.. THAT THAR'S COMMUNISM AND SOCIALISM. THESE PEOPLE DON'T EVEN KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM. Why am I upset? Because the very people that are losing everything are the ones that are willing to give up their freedoms and everyone else's so that they can believe in a make believe world that they can keep what they have, while they are losing it all... but they can blame everyone else that doesn't agree with them. The people that are wanting to keep freedom and wanting pass on a better life to their children not at best keep a status quo or as reality shows LOSE what we have. I am no Bible scholar, but WHERE IN THE BIBLE DOES IT SAY TURN YOUR BACK ON THE WEAK AND INFIRMED AND BITCH ABOUT SOMEONE IN NEED GETTING A LITTLE BIT FROM THE GOVERNMENT? You can bail out Wall Street and Auto companies, but you are going to bitch and moan about investing into the people by giving universal healthcare and programs to help people become better educated and thus more productive?????? The companies and banking industries are too "BIG TO FAIL"? But the people that pay taxes and work hard to try to better their lives, it's ok for them to fail????? WTF? This is ok with you? Some laugh thinking "oh it's just a tirade and I have mine who cares if others don't have theirs.... don't even try to touch mine." Eventually, when the poor have nothing left to give and become "burdens" and you imprison them all... who do you think the masters will come after next?????
