"How did it come to this?" Is it the fault of the media? What will we do about it?

I got this email from a friend, was hoping for some comments to send him...

How did it come to this?

In case you haven't been paying attention- American Politics has been exposed as a total load of crap. Clearly the Aristocrats- politicians, bankers, 1%ers- have no respect for the public as they foist one absurd lie after another upon us, then have their media mouthpieces tell us to accept that 2+2 is 5. They tell us that yes, we know it used equal 4, but that's all changed since 9/11- it's 5 now and don't question it or you'll aid the terrorists.

Absurd Bullshit from our "leaders"

It is absurd that they Launched 2 wars while declaring tax cuts for the rich at the same time had no effect on the deficit.

Cheney on the tax cuts: "Reagan proved that deficits don't matter, We won the mid-term elections, this is our due."

Bush doubled the National Debt from $5 to $10 trillion, Republicans voted to up the debt ceiling 19 times during the Bush Regime, yet this has nothing to due with the current debt.

It is un-*#%!-believable that 'Democratic Leaders' are unable to point out these facts on national tv.

It is absurd that Rumsfeld said the Iraq war would pay for itself, now we've spent over a $Trillion in Iraq and not one Democrat ever said, "Hey, that guy was a liar- Nobody would have voted for the war if we'd known it would cost a trillion dollars."

Why do the democrats always conveniently forget the BS the other team spouted to get their way? Because the Demopublicans and Republicrats are on the same team, they all work for the 1%.

It is absurd that millions refuse to accept a truth so obvious.

Billions have been "lost" in Iraq due to corruption, yet there was NO investigation. Meanwhile, politicians agree we can NEVER cut the military budget, but we can cut services for the poor.

There are 47 million Americans on foodstamps, nearly double the 27 million in 2007, and according to the media, these citizens are all lazy moochers that want 'entitlement' handouts. These Americans are responsible for the debt. This is f#$%ing bullsh!t and the all those pigs in the media that spout this crap ought to be #$%! @#$* !%^&#% Antoinette $%@% $@#* rolling!
