The article by Konagod was on the money.
by: Father TymeWhy do they "need" all the money they can stuff down their throats or up their asses? Probaly the same reason the nearly extinct middle class and disappearing upper middle class needed to keep up with the Joneses, thanks in large part to businesses who play people against each other.
I understand why you get upset. Something else bugs me right now, although I'd be hard pressed to find a period these last 10 years when there was any time I wasn't bugged. But I digress.
If someone on the net or in print or on TV (Righteous Right excluded, of course) makes mouth noises about taking matters into his or her own hands and doling out physical punishment however severe or terminal, that person is investigated, ostracized, ridiculed and many times arrested and sent by wealthy judges for "evaluation." We all know that's a no-no. You can't go around suggesting out loud that someone should be removed from this plane of existence. No sir. You don't do that in a civilized, democratic nation.
However, it's ok for some (you can guess who they are) to quite openly, in the media, suggest that healthcare, food (food stamps), assistance for heating in the winter and the like be taken from these people knowing full well they WILL die if that kind of funding is removed. There must be a difference between the two, but I guess it must not be very important, at least to those who think they still have a chance at the American illusion.
Only when the latter is considered insane, stupid, un-American will we start returning to the way things should be.
We have too many well-to-dos, too many Republican wannabes, too many "good Christians" making decisions of life and death for others...but not themselves or their kind. Until those who aren't allowed to respond in kind start doing in actuality what those in power can say without fear, we will continue as things are until only those in power are left.
But won't that be sweet? Once there are no more of "us", the next class war will start. Too bad for those of you making up to a million a year. You'll be the next middle class "those who watch and control" must effectively remove. It should be a hoot. Especially if many of those are bible-thumping, gun-toting nationalists who won't for the life of them understand what they did to deserve the disdain and contempt of the new order of the "upper classes."
Maybe some of us WILL survive long enough to enjoy their new, deserved misery.
Oh and the single comment to Kona's article was priceless! Couldn't have been written better!
