America has been stolen from us by our own filthy rich. My grasp of the dismal science of economics is simple and unsophisticated but I’ve spent far too much time among thieves not to know theft when I see it. In what is by far the biggest robbery in history, the ‘haves and have mores’ have taken not only all that we have, but all that we’ll ever have. They have stolen the very future from our children and grandchildren. If we continue to take it lying down, we deserve what we get.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way in America.

“When the American people, facing a foreclosure crisis and struggling economy, turned to this administration for help, the answer was no,” Clinton said in a statement. “Now, the administration is turning to the American people for help, to rescue the credit markets and take on hundreds of billions in debt and financial obligations as a consequence of that same foreclosure crisis. The truth is, Main Street came to Washington and got little. Now Washington is coming to Main Street and asking for a lot.”
Thank you for the quote Hillary. It’s a good one…but what I want to know is when will the political establishment, and especially the Democrats, finally ‘get it’ and stop supporting this madness and get serious about drastic reform – not just of the economy but the entire government as well? When are we going to finally end the corruption? When are we going to finally act to ensure the rule of law? When is any one of our leaders going to stand up and take bold action in the interests of the American people?
A good place to start it seems to me is by making sure that the American people are the ones who get bailed out here – not the idiot asshole gazillionaires at the top who caused the problem to begin with in their greed-besotted zeal to rip the rest of us off.
Now they want US to bail THEM out. That is just one more royal screwing on top of the mighty mountain of royal screwings we have taken as a people.
Let us do what is prudent and wise, but let’s ensure that the American people are the one’s who get bailed out here – not the greedy bandits responsible for the crisis. They should be brought to justice just like the bandits in the White House.
It is time to take our country back. It is time for a return to sanity.
It is time to return America to the American people.
Thank you Woody Guthrie.
