A Zombulation Nation That Refuses To Think
Right now we have tens of millions of Americans out of work, getting kicked out of their homes, and potentially going hungry because they or a family member lost their job or income due to their employer or business running out of cash flow and unable to pay them.
At the same time we have tens of millions of Americans still getting paychecks from Wall Street banks and government while their employer has also run out of cash flow......but their employer has access to a seemingly endless line of credit and borrowed money. In the banks and government's case, we are talking about trillions of dollars of credit per year being extended with little prospect of the money ever being paid back.
Aside from access to credit, government and Wall Street would be insolvent and the employees would be in a similar position as the millions who have been fired or seen substantial wage reductions in the private sector.
Never in American history have we treated private sector employees so differently than Federal or Wall Street.....and without any legal or moral justification.
It appears the citizens are becoming more and more aware of the injustice.....and the tension is clearly rising. We are now heading in one of the most dangerous directions our nation has ever travelled down and could tear us apart at the seams.
The pancake eaters still can't see the chasm forming......nor can they feel the tremors......but soon, this puppy will erupt........and the outcome will not likely be pleasant.....unless we all wake up and start to deal with this issue......AND DEAL WITH IT NOW AND NOT WASTE TIME INSTALLING FLAT SCREEN TVs or contemplating spending more money on health care that we don't have.
I am still amazed how we bailed out the Wall Street bankers and gave them billions in bonuses even though they were INSOLVENT and directly culpable for the current financial mess......AND SO FEW RAISED A VOICE. But if you worked for the Federal government, maybe a deal was worked out, you bonus us and bail us out.....than we will allow you to keep your jobs......who gives a damn about the rest of the nation.
As conditionss start to really break down as more and more are zombulated......soon we will ALL give a damn.....1.01.10. Just reflect upon the kids of the Salvation Army Sgt. who was shot and killed in front of his family in a robbery attempt yesterday. Desperation and frustration are rising to unprecedented levels around the nation....and we are not socially structured to deal with it.
If you really step back and think about it....how we allowed insolvent bankers and insolvent government workers to still get paychecks and bonuses YET cut off insolvent private citizens/businesses from a livlihood or money is truly a sad commentary on how our moral and legal structure has degraded.
We have always been a society based on innovation, ingenuity, and implementation cemented by fairness and equal justice for all......that has been the backbone on a nation founded on the principal of no taxation without representation and justice is blind.
What is even more amazing.....is how few Americans even think about it and prefer installing flat screens and eating pancakes while the moral and legal capital of our nation evaporates. Without "full faith and credit", our currency has little or no value......no matter how many flatscreens you may have.
