As much of a joke as this appears to be, it is the reality of it is essentially a travesty constantly being foisted on the American people.
I do not particularly care about the financial problems the rest of the world is having and I am overwhelmingly not alone in this feeling.
I am sick and tired of bailing out countries that constantly usurp our “good will” and in return spit in our faces.
I am tired of China not having a fair-trade agreement with US while every time we buy something made in China they laugh at us.
I am tired of the idiocy that the alleged candidates for the next presidency exhibit when they are on TV telling each other about how great they are and how evil the opposition is.
I am tired of greedy companies that constantly outsource jobs to societies that continue to grow rich while they laugh in our faces.
I am tired of bailing out the rich under the guise of preventing financial collapse.
I am tired of looking at the Dow everyday and seeing alleged immense growth in our country's economy while there are thousands of people living in refrigerator cartons.
I am tired of hearing the plaints of money mongers who continually try to coerce the general population into donating more money to their causes so they can send food to countries with starving children that never gets to them.
I am tired of pharmaceutical companies that go out of their way to hide the fact that they have indeed already figured out the cure for horrible diseases that are readily heal-able but continue to rip off Americans by pricing the "almost there" drugs beyond the means of most.
I am tired of a governmental nonsense protocol that refuses to give the legitimately needy the health care they need and deserve while throwing away money on foreign soil for whatever reasons they deem appropriate.
I am tired of the Asian world suggesting that they are the progenitors of the martial arts and that anything that comes after them is not the “real thing.”
I am tired of reading bogus versions of wisdom 101 books that proliferate the market.
I can go on and on, but I have to go to work and provide for myself...unless anyone out there wants to give me a handout.
