Ok, I'm kinda freaking myself out because I have to say that I agree with PT and CE way more than my too favorite women on this one.
I think it is despicable that Obama voted for the bail out. I have tried to reason it out and justify and everything else, but when it comes down to it, I am
ed. At least 700b worth of bad debt is a ludicrous idea and I really don't care if all those stupid banks go into the toilet. The rich people are the only ones with any money left anyhow. So who cares! 700b could go really, really freaking far towards FREE HEALTH CARE for our whole country.
Or for that fricken matter, why not divide that $700b and give every american adult their equal share. The way I figure it out, it would be more than $3,200,000 for each adult. I'm pretty fricken sure if each of us had that much money we wouldn't have to worry too much about the stupid fucking banks and we could just trade with actual humans and be just fine. Hell, I'm sure people would deposit most of the money after paying off their bills and buying their houses and all that shit. So there you go, the banks get money to lend and we all don't have to pay them for fucking us in the first place.
I did have hope that Barack would help us. I really did. I thought he was a wonderful candidate (after I got over the fact that Kucinich would never get nominated)...but I don't think that voting the same fucking way ole bushie told him to, and saying essentially the same thing about the vote as McCain makes any sense and is not good for our country. The banks are the only ones crying about not having money to lend, at least this is what I see, hear and experience. Most everyone else isn't trying to borrow any more money right now.
I've never been one to just outright say I'm a democrat, though I will admit that the theoretical democratic platform is the one I most closely identify with, but I am not going to just spout off the whole "vote for the lesser of two evils" anymore. I have finally and truly been completely disillusioned. It doesn't matter if we vote or not. And it doesn't matter who's pres or not. We have no "representatives" in government and I now wonder if we ever did. Do you know, in my retarded, backwards ass state where nearly every white person claims to be a republican and a fair bit of the black people claim the same, one of our 4 house reps (and my district's rep), a republican, actually voted FOR the bailout???? No one here wants it. NO ONE. He is NOT voting the way the majority of the people he represents wants in the least fricken bit. Its all a complete bullshit illusion.
I don't want to eat the blue pill. I am tired of pretending this world is different than it really is.
