Bush World

John Steinbeck's cash strapped hometown is closing all of it's public libraries this upcoming spring. CLICK HERE

On the other hand . . . it's bonus time on wall street! . . . " The client insisted on seeing more apartments that day, but now she wanted to look in the $6 million range. Her husband, a banker at Goldman Sachs in his late 30's, had just received his year-end bonus. "

It's all about priorities, my brothers and sister PTS'ers. What kind of America we want for our kids. It amazes me that Republicans and conservatives want to go back to the good 'ol days. That being lower wages, low or NO benefits for employees, and a HUGE gap between the haves and have nots. NEED PROOF? CLICK HERE

You see, Bush republicans see poverty as a moral failing. It's your fault you are poor. Or maybe God has ordained us to be loaded with $$! (Yes, I actually heard that when I waited tables)

1. So what if there are no high paying jobs! Should have gone to (or back to) school!

2. So what if you cannot afford health care and your kid has a chronic health prob, you should be rich. . . like us! SEE #1 above

3. So what if you subsidize our tax cuts by paying more yourself. You should have worked harder! Like us! (Who inherited a name/money/position in your dad's company) SEE #2 above

Excuse the rant, but teachers, firemen, our folks serving in uniform . . . they ARE working hard!
They ARE educated! They ARE our neighbors, brothers and sisters worthy of respect. They CHOOSE to serve us.

Republicans are, RIGHT NOW, fighting not to repect you and those mentioned above, but to create an permanent underclass of folks trapped in a cycle of poverty.

Who has the moral failing now? God, I hate Republicans.
