The final feeling I'm left with .. after reviewing everything I wrote .. is the thing that most OFFENDS my sense of morality.
The one that stands out in a long line of shady characters.
You see ..
It seems our government has teamed with Wall Street (comprising the Unholy Tag-Team) to devise a system that siphons a mind-blowing amount of money from our children's future and funnels it to a relatively small number of greedy adults .. who already have way more than they could ever possibly need.
I know there are an inifinite number of decisions involved in getting from point A to point B, but this siphoning of our children's future is the end result .. after all other variables cancel out. And nobody is stopping it.
People shouldnt have to set up camp all around the country before you get the message. This should've never happened in the first place. In other words, you're way behind schedule. So get busy.
I can assure you that today's youth do not give a rat's ass about your childish excuses. All that matters is the end result. And the RESULT is » ever day that passes plunges their generation deeper in debt and makes their future increasingly precarious. That's right » every day. Every minute of every day.
The Moral Macro Perspective
It's what I call the Moral-Macro perspective .. the moral results of U.S. Economic policy. On a macro level. Shouldnt need a degree in Ethics to realize it's wrong.
Pisses me off. You cant imagine. Good thing I have no lightning bolts flashing forth from my hands. Surely you can sense the depth of authenticity in my disgust.
If people feel anything like I do, then I'm not surprised they've taken to the streets. Are you?
News bulletin! This just in. Babies coast-to-coast have had their Trillion-Dollar Suckers stolen. We have recieved more than a dozen reports, nationwide. So be on the look out.
Stay tuned. An artist's composite rendering of the culprit will be posted soon as it becomes available.
Anybody with a lick of sense knows this is exactly what's happening and that it aint right. Downright indefensible. (You guys suk.)
So fix it. (While you still can.)
Answer » they cant.
If there's one thing you learn in JAIL .. it's that they dont take kindly to people who hurt little kids (.. cuz that's the reason underlying why many of them ended up there).
"Yes, you in the back. Stand up, please. Correct-a-mundo! Because we're having an election in November." [ And kids cant vote. ]
So it appears that our DEBT problem is tied to our politicians or the political process. You decide which is appropriate.
At the heart of this dysfunction, you'll find a dialogue that goes something like this » "You and your friends can have a lick of the kid's lolly, but only if you let me and my friends have a taste, first."
Pretty soon » no more lollies left.
Two final questions.
- If your parents went on a long vacation the entire time while you were in high school, and left you with an unbelievably huge tab to pay on the day you graduated, would it be wrong if you refused to work the rest of your life to pay their bills?
- What kind of parents would do something like that?
