I haven't posted in a while. There has been plenty going on in the world, but I have had more personal things to concern myself with. Like how I am going to pay my rent next month. When you are a single person who has been unemployed for over two years, with no regular source of income and family and friends who do not have the financial resources to help you, life can be pretty stressful. No kidding.
So the GOP has been in charge in the House for about 3 months and I have yet to hear of any bills introduced by them to create jobs. I heard they may have talked about it once. I would guess Boehner has probably cried about it. Apparently defunding NPR and making the IRS into the abortion police is a more pressing need in this country. Well the IRS might as well have something to do seeing as how they have no taxes to collect from all those wealthy people. Collecting large sums of money can keep you pretty busy. Repossessing an unemployed person's car takes much less time.
And those cheeky state GOPers, aren't they a gas? I hear the Minnesota GOP wants to make it a crime for a person getting public assistance to carry more than $20 in cash. Makes sense, I mean we wouldn't want them to get mugged right? Because that is taxpayer money they are getting beat up over. And then there is Wisconsin, the state with all the ungodly wealthy teachers, firefighters and police officers. Got to put a stop to that. Those corporate CEOs can't be upstaged, that would be a travesty. Wait, corporate CEO's make much more than $40,000 a year? Well who would have thunk it.
To be fair, the President hasn't been much help either. Apparently bombing Libya takes precedence over keeping people in America from losing their homes and starving. Don't get me wrong, I voted for the guy and all seeing how he was much better than the alternative. I mean who really wanted Clueless Barbie a heartbeat (literally in McCain's case) away from the Presidency. But he could, you know, mention the jobless crisis once in a while, just so everyone doesn't forget there are 15 million people with no jobs in this country. At least for those who care anyway. And those who but for the grace of God are not in my shoes. It can happen in a split second, let me tell you, and last for a very very long time.
Well it doesn't matter anyway. Glenn Beck says it is the end of the world. So why worry? Gee I feel so much better now.
