Ol' George Needs a Makeover
George Washington that is. The dollar is worth pennys. Literally. The solution our government settles upon? Flood the country with fresh bills. Throw some paper at a symptom of the problem. Whose pocket did it end up in? Not the small business owner on a dying Main Street, no. Corporate America, and Corporate japan. All of this, funded by a "loan" from china... A loan of that size implicates a very complex contract of course... What do you think the likelihood is that that contract was properly negotiated to the very last detail? It was a fairly hurried process and I feel that there had to have been some oversight. That loan represented a value HIGHER than our total reserves. We are in debt for more than our money people... More than a Mercedes Benze, or a Lucien Pallet Finet timepiece, or a luxury yacht, or a G6. We are in debt for our country. How do we rebuild? Revolt. Our government is broken and we have to do something about it or we will lose our standard to their greed. Our government is no longer so much of a source of diplomacy and guidance but more of a capitalist oligarchy with a cumulative will to control and possess. We are looking at being slaves to the corporations, who will be controlled by China. They are on their way up, and now they need somebody to make sneakers for next to nothing while they kick back drinking coke and eating some burger king while they watch the game. Basically, they could see us as the next China, and them as the next America. Do you feel this is okay? So how do we fix it right? We have to start by fixing the dollar. We need to make things people new things not just improvements on the past. We have more down time than any other population and it's time we used it. Learn about electronics. Learn about machines and tools. Learn about farming, Learn about things that we have been paying the other countries to do for years and maybe we can start getting their money. That's how you pay off a debt right? Get other people to render services or goods from you and you turn a profit. So once we are producers again, our products get a better reputation as the quality increases. Dont be afraid to hire. The more people there are with money, the more sales there are to be made. Be gracious with your profits, not greedy. The better deal will bring them back. We used to be famous for making the best. Durable, long lasting products. Now we like flimsy plastic? Nuh-uh. Composites are better, and more profitable due to their durability. We need to create a 21st century industrial revolution and the only way that happens is with a push. We have to work together. We have the power to solve all of the problems before us and yet we entrust it to a government that is so entangled in red tape it can't move 5 steps, let alone fix a multi trillion dollar debt before I have to go on medicaid and get denied for insufficient funds. I want access to the medical advancements that are becoming available. But the government can't see that the flaws are too deep to fix with simple revision. Here's what I say. Reinstate the nation our forefathers set before us, in which every man was free to be exactly the man he pleased and every woman just as she please. Nobody is a second class citizen. Nothing of your own discretion is anywhere near legislature. Of course laws are important but when they get to be so many and so intricate it has gone too far. We are a large nation and micromanagement is our biggest enemy. What has the war on drugs achieved? Wasted dollars. What has Operation Iraqi Liberation achieved? Wasted dollars. In Bill Cheneys pocket. Sky high gas prices. Lost heroes. How about the wierd science? It's all worthless. But they just throw the money there like it didn't have a place. Taxes should be devoted to 2 things, government supplies, and social programs. and the "social programs" shouldn't just be a credit card... They should be a program to help people to not need welfare. To get to a point of sustainance and growth. Media has to change too. We need to see more of the things that life is really about. Living happy. With a house, wife, kids, the good stuff. We want the wrong things and we're creating a mess. Do you think any of these girls who get used and thrown out like a condom are going to trust any of us guys who do it to them in 15 or 20 years? No. Certainly not. They're going to tolerate some of us, but only long enough to get their child support payment or drop the kids off. Don't you want something better that what is happening here? Show some love for your country and help me to save it.
