You don't have a job because....
politicians of both parties sold you out for corporate money.

You don't have healthcare because the Pentagon needs new war toys to beat up militaries 1/100,000,000th their size.

Your meager pension makes millionaires out of those that control it and the working-poor out of those who collect them.

2. Many of us do not have jobs because of 30 years of trickle down
bullshit reaching its apotheosis in the form of the highest levels of concentrated wealth this country has seen since the late 1920s.

4. The Pentagon and the military are employment programs. Period.
They are treated as such because there is no will in this nation or anywhere else in the world to find constructive work which would benefit mankind. It's so much easier to fight over resources than it is to share and build.

6. What is a pension?
I think one of the main problems is politicians have the power to make themselves rich.

Practically anyone in any profession would do the same given the chance.

10. And if we dare complain about any of it
What do we get? A lecture from their mouthpieces telling us we don't work hard enough or we'd be up there in the 1% strata too. Horseshit!!

I'll not be lectured to by the powdered and pampered aristocracy. :grr:
