With all this ‘stimulus’ package talk – have you noticed how it has already wheedled it’s way into corporate brainwashing (advertising) – how come I never feel stimulated? I get the feeling that I (and folks like I) are the stimulaTORS and not the stimulaTEES.
So…….what’s in all this horseshit for me?
Not much. A continued sense that every single person…without exception…working in federal, state and local government will say and do anything to get (re) elected regardless of the impact to their ‘constituency’ (and boy did Lautenberg and Holt really sell out for NJ…might as well bring Florio back).
A growing sense that it’s every person for themselves, brought on by corporate greedheads and the empty-headed (animal food trough wiper)government officials that support them, at a time when everyone should be pulling together. To quote Pete Townshend from one of his more overlooked solo efforts… “What happened to all that lovely hippie shit?”
I’ve been thinking…(always a bad sign)…what would happen if everyone in the US decided not to pay their taxes? OK, so I know 100% compliance to that would never happen…but let’s say 50% of every eligible taxpayer said “You know what? Screw you, DC. You continually waste my money that I bust my ass for an you’re not going to get another friggin’ penny until some fiscal responsibility starts wafting through those hallowed halls.” There are around 300 million people in the US…what are they going to do…suddenly throw 150 million people in jail? You want me to take personal responsibility? Fine…I’ll take 100% personal responsibility for my life…you (DC) stay the hell out of my pockets, off my back and out of my life.
Hmmm…don’t know why I’m lashing out like that. Guess I just needed a good tirade, and government is such an easy target.
And here comes another Monday…Happy Happy Joy Joy
