Everyone on the earth is here to make "their" lives more comfortable.

It's like the Queen ant and the workers.
The workers scurry around ready to give their lives for the safety of the queen.

We were so busy with our little lives that we didn't see "them" holding back
our salaries and promotions so they could divert the money to their own
bank accounts.

For 30 years we've been getting screwed and now it's too late for us to recoup our losses.

But the GOP is dying out and the masses will bring our country back into balance.

The Republican'ts may never win another election and after we get the gerrymandered districts back into
balance we will slowly evolve into a country that is better for everyone.

"We used to be able to get things done in this country, like Social Security and Medicare. What happened?"

I miss Teddy.
