Yelling that out the window, at myself and others.

Like participating in the republic is a hand out. Like if you just go to work, and ignore what is happening, it all just takes care of itself...

Wtf?

No, it you esnt. It takes people being active. It takes more than 20 people going to the school board meeting. It takes more than 20 people going to any meeting, to get anything done.

Ignore the state, and focus on work, and this is what you get: Wages are down, yet productivity is up. Receipts are down, and spending is up. Congressional wages are up, and accountability is down. Corporatism is on the rise, capitalism and socialism are becoming a distant memory.

Chemicals in your corn. Shit in your water.

Bombs overseas and less books over here.

It goes on and on and on and on.... "Get a Job"... usually yelled by some freak who is probably feeding their kids McDonalds because theres no time to cook.

I'm on your page...plus I have a job making a wage that is ok for what I do and compared to the going rate but that's just it in comparison to the cost of living it's still a struggle. Not only has it not gone up in 15 years, it has gone down and been deflated due to increased competition and lack of jobs. On to of the stagflation of my wages, those same few monopolies that are siphening my paycheck while they rise higher and hugher demanding more of my wages each year and causing my paycheck massive deflation are big oil, power companies, industrial farms, healthcare, (ha they even get to cut out the middleman and have it before I ever even see it) insurance,car prices and thanks to Wallstreet getting in the housing "business" inflated roof over my head, interest to banks, education, communications, and let's not forget higher taxes to bail them all out, and provide those who are laid off with subsidies to afford he jacked up commodities that refuse to come down (theywould rather have half the population starve) and instead of regulating them the government has us pool our funds so all the unemployed can still meet their price... amounts to if all these commodities would fall to meet wage suppression, then we would't be working just to keep them profiting to the moon, maybe Americans would have savings instead of 6 jobs. Are we all just stupid or too frigging tired to stop letting ourselves toil for a few monopolies that have fixed all the markets and simultaneously cut all our jobs and deflated our wages?

Are you poor forlorn and hungry

Are there lots of things you lack

Are your clothes all torn and tattered

are you living in a shack

would you have your trobles scattered

Than dump the bosses off your back

Are you almost split assunder

loaded like a one ear jack

Boob why don't you act like thunder and dump the bosses off your back

All the agonies you suffer you could end with one good whack

Stiffin up you angry duffer and dump the bosses off your back.
