Change you can bereave in

By

I know, I know. He’s only been on the job for two months. Give him a chance, give him a chance.

I’ve seen enough. Actually I had seen enough halfway through the campaign, but that’s another story.

We are hemmhoraging jobs like a suicidal hemophiliac with a razor blade in an empty room.

Reuters is reporting that US job losses in March totaled 742 thousand.

If that’s not bad enough, they also report that February job losses have been revised to total 706 thousand jobs, up from the original 697 thousand functioning members of society – and the economy.

That’s one and one half million jobs that your friends and neighbors – or perhaps even you – can no longer rely on. I myself just took a pay cut of about a thousand dollars a year. Coupled with the predictable increase in health benefits, which I never use and cost me more than six thousand dollars per year, I’ve lost thirteen hundred dollars in income this year.

I won’t include January’s job losses so I don’t have to hear that two thirds of the losses occured on “Bush’s watch”.

Don’t laugh – you know it’s true.

And we wonder why folks can’t pay their mortgages.

    Hi Griff,

    Maybe there’s a silver lining in this unfolding mega crisis. As more and more folks lose their jobs and unemployment extensions dry up, then in time, just maybe millions will converge on D.C. and their statebased Congressional reps’ offices and demand serious change and justice. Then maybe we’ll finally have blood in the streets along with a constructive outcome in terms of these smug crimpol fat cats realizing who’s the boss.

    I admire the Brit rioters who were roughing up these smug assh*les at the G20 meeting. The meeting looked like a real “lovefest” or one of their typical “balloon and cookie” parties to me and all at the expense of their respective national taxslaves.

    They’re also rioting in Ireland due to the summary closure of Ford plant facilities. They went from having some of the first financial success in generations, now back to square one. Hopefully some regional Ford managers along with their government shills et. al. just might get their heads busted as a function of old time shillelagh justice.

    America has been in bad straights for quite some time now, but no one seems to protest en masse anymore. Possibly its been the mass dispensation of anti-depressant drugs during the past twenty years rendering people docile for the most part or its fluoride in the water, whatever, it seems Americans no longer have any fire in the belly to shakeup these smug crimpols that are now running not only our government, but world governments in general. Supposedly in excess of 80 million Americans are on Prozac type drugs or its modern analogs.

    Obviously the voting booth doesn’t cut it anymore. The process of voting has been reduced to a feelgood excercize totally controlled by the MSM and rigged primaries as to who the power elites want to run for office; ie. those that have evidently been groomed to perform as “judas goats” to facilitate their ever-encroaching NWO agenda.

    “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants…” Thomas Jefferson 1770

    Then again, maybe the concept of freedom is passe’ too. Shopping until you drop with money you haven’t earned is what it’s all about in our times…no?!

    Pretty much. I encounter many people not only in my work but in my personal life, and they all seem to be clueless as to what to do. Most have the basic understanding that things are certainly rotten, and at the same time feel that they’re powerless to do anything but trudge through their daily existence and hope for the best.

    Escapism is the name of the game. Life too rough for ya? Take this pill and vedge out in front of the tube. Soak in all that propaganda.

    A main side effect for an anti-depressant is, well, depression!

    Now go vote!

    Funny you should mention Prozac, considering its active ingredient (fluoxetine) is a fluoride derivative. It’s amazing what the rearranging of a few molecules can do for ya.

    Always impressed with your lucidity, your voting for Obama not withstanding. Ha – couldn’t resist.

    Just wait until that inflation hits. It’ll make your $1300 loss seem like peanuts.

    China and Russia suggest replacing the dollar as the reserve currency and Mr. Dumass aka Tim Geithner says he is “open to the idea.”

    Ding dong ding dong. The bell tolls for the dollar.

    I say tell China, Russia and the rest of them to forget about importing anything to the US including OIL.

    We can make washing machines, clothing, cars, tools etc. and anything else we need.We got to where we are at by outsourcing, time for some serious change in trade policy to the point of stopping it altogether and returning to our self sufficient manufacturing base.

    I’m positive we’ve gotten into this mess because we have chosen the easy and cheap instead of the hard and challenging. Time to buck up and shut the f%ck up or become third world paupers.

    We cannot lead and we cannot survive if we depend on others to bolster our lives by doing our work for us.

    As for the wars, again, f%ck em, let them fight it out, we are tired of the expenditure of our youth and prosperity to protect those that hate and want to destroy what they don’t have the guts to die for and that is personal LIBERTY.

    We can defend ourselves economically and militarily as we have proven down through the ages so it’s time to get off the merry-go-round of failed foreign policy, pull back ,regain our strength and let them sort out their own problems.

    We can’t afford their bullshit and the wise among us know that no dividend has ever come from trampling our own to help others. HACK!

    Mr McClellan:

    ABSOLUTELY RIGHT ON TARGET!!

    I couldn’t agree more. Now if we can just get THAT ball rolling, then MAYBE we stand a chance of becoming the country that the founders envisioned to begin with.

    Here’s (raises a glass of O.J.) to real change for and by the real power…the People.
