A Layman’s Perspective..

" And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves.."

Do I understand this right? The disciples of Adam Smith's "invisible hand" now want the biggest handout in history?

The filth that say we can't afford social security, yet now state that it is imperative to bail out the hideous, greedy, speculative thieves that brought upon this economic crisis?

Do I understand this right? That my American dream is shattered by the nightmare brought upon by the reckless, predatory lending practices of these white collar criminals?

Do I understand this right? That I'll possibly spend the rest of my life paying off debt that I never agreed to incur?

I drive a 1987 car, go without health insurance, and rent a modest home that my sister owns. I've worked hard my whole life. I went from middle class, to working class, to working poor. Now in mid life, where I should be harvesting some material success, I'm scrambling for survival - and now I gotta pay off some rich bastard's gambling debt? Are you kidding me?

There is another war America is fighting - it is rooted within the tremendous gap between those few top percent who have nearly all the wealth and those of us struggling to survive. As the middle class erodes further and further, more and more people will join the ranks of the under employed, exploited, cheated, and oppressed. How much does our government think we'll take? How much can we take? The back bone of Amerika is broken..
