I realize that some say I am a "ranter". I am somewhat proud of this label. To me it is because I am not AFRAID to speak out when I see injustice. Perhaps evoke in others a little thought. I am not afraid to say; "Hay, this (whatever) may not personally effect ME, but (whatever) IS NOT RIGHT. I really go off when I AM personally effected. I assume other persons that think of me, are saying in negative effect; that I do a lot of "Bitching", and thus, do not have a valid point.
I find this very unfortunate. Entire points of valuable facts of importance are lost to an ignorant stereotypical label and further then, diversion, through digression from the real original issue at hand. It seems that people are still too comfy in their day to day, too scared to speak, too caught up in the selfish illusions placed as "important" that they have not been hit broad side with a 2x4 yet. The term "Dumbed down American" has come about for a reason.
That the art form of rational thinking for oneself and taking time to research issues is becoming lost to the convenient opinions placed in a bias "news media", a brainwashing tube making people believe there is a "choice" (their choice, of course, which is an illusion, with either "choice" to the same end). Or some uninformed, head-in-the-sand, fluffy do-goody saying "what you think is what is reality" (tell that to the starving in Africa, you dumb-ass), or by some religious zealot that thinks "God" has only ONE bigoted way. Maybe others are just plain LAZY and want someone else to "fix" the problem. Only to have that "someone else" only looking to benefit themselves. I can not comprehend that if something is terribly wrong, why most are not willing to RANT too, or maybe do something.
Following is a column from fellow "ranter" that has a quite a few more people listening to him than I have listening to me. I believe he makes a good point that deserves to be shared with ANYONE you can possibly get to wake up from the trivial bull shit that has been made to encompass "First world life" (like America and the UK) and any who will listen to logic. I believe, like it or not, a 2x4 is headed your way.
Because I care enough, NOT to shut up,
How Congress Voted
Here is the list of those Congressional representatives who surrendered your economic future. A "Y" means a "Yes" vote (in favor of the financial bailout legislation).
A list of those who have betrayed the People by conspiring to instigate acts of economic warfare against We the People. Look for the "Y" ones that represent your area and vote them OUT OF OFFICE.
Then spread this message to all you know and encourage them to do the same. This is the only thing, short of a revolution, that we have left to do. Surveys have proven the majority of the American people did not want a bail out for the wealthy and flooded congress with messages telling them so.
MAKE THEM JOBLESS TO SEE THE CONSEQUENCES OF WHAT THEY HAVE DONE.
("N" means they voted No. "Y" means they voted Yes.")
