Lets Be Realistic...

With the run up to midterm elections, it appears that absolute pandemonium is breaking loose on Capital Hill.

First up, Republicans delaying a vote on one of the most historically progressive anti-discrimination bills. Why? Apparently because it's too discriminatory. You know, things like requiring ballots in languages other than English, or supposedly focusing on states in the south. I'm sorry, I didn't catch that one...a country without a specified national language limiting access to non-English-speaking citizen voters and complaining about a law that focused on a geographic region still known today to discriminate on the basis of race, lifestyle choice, and national origin? Stop the presses! Aren't these guys getting a pay raise? So they make $165,200 per year? Maybe I should run for Congress.

As an aside, lets all take a moment to consider the practical effect of those Flag Desecration statutes.

Second, if you need any more proof that the economy is broken, or at least getting to an irreparable state, consider this. Congress just rejected an increase to the nationally imposed minimum wage. Realistically, this isn't helping anyone. I guess Walmart will get to continue to relegate its employees to abject poverty. If I were a democrat vying for a contended midterm seat, I think I might start pandering to all of those immigrants the Republicans are so keen to let cross our borders. Sure, you can come into our country, but don't expect to make more than $5.15 per hour. There was a time where this wasn't that bad of a salary. But that was before inflation caused by a national debt of $8 Trillion. This kind of drastic increase in the national debt, consequently devaluing the dollar. The lower the value of the dollar, the more regular items cost. To some degree, the deficit drives inflation. The fiscally irresponsible Congress is walking us down the road to ruin, and low interest rates won't keep the economic raft afloat much longer.

So, what we need to see is pragmatic spending and legislation from the Hill, anything less does a fundamental disservice to the citizens of this country.

One final note for anyone who is a customer of AT&T. Your information no longer belongs to you. If there were ever a time where that pragmatic legislation could really benefit the publis, be it through net neutrality, or controlling the over zealous authoritarian executive branch, now would be it.

Hello Donnybrook and all,

You may not initially agree with everything I reveal, but please be a little patient with my long-winded presentation of what I have waited a very long time to be able to say. I promise to amaze and enlighten.

Now for the worst part of this horrendous equation.

Pay close attention, profundity knocks at the door, listen for the key. Be Aware! Scoffing causes blindness...

Bush, Cheney, and the NeoCons are Vatican operatives hell-bent on impoverishing and indebting the USA. Looks like their plans have worked like a charm while the brain-dead American public remains duped, deluded, and addicted to money, religion, and politics. Who says you can't fool most of the people, most of the time...

Humanity has long been deceived and deluded into thinking that money is a positive means to manage life, societies and civilizations. Chapter 2 of Revelations from the Apocalypse, Volume 1: Here is Wisdom thoroughly exposes the foundational deceptions associated with the concept of money and how it is actually a severe hardship on every aspect of life and every endeavor that must bear the burden of its unnecessary overhead and resulting stifling complexity. Money severely impedes the quality of life, society, and civilization by spawning myriad horrendous side effects (poverty, crime, wars, pollution, waste, greed, stress, etc.) which are all traced directly to its presence, purposeful shortage, and imposed requirement.

Here's a real hot potato! Eat it up, digest it, and then feed it's bones to the hungry...

Money was conceived millennia ago by the priesthood of ancient Babylon to subvert the resources and energies of entire populations for the benefit of a rich and powerful few. Chapter 2 further pierces the ages-old smoke and mirrors surrounding the scourge of money, banking and credit (usury) by exposing their core logic and common denominator math. It exposes the purposeful and well-sculpted math and logic trap imposed upon humanity by the Vatican, its ancient predecessors, and their secret-society cohorts.

It is abundantly clear that imposing money upon the entire world and then forcing people to participate in usury, pay taxes, compounding interest on national debts, and then to struggle their lives away for the sake of money, is extortion and great injustice on a grand scale. To cause suffering and despair for profit on such a grand scale can only be described as abominably evil. The time has finally arrived to demand a full accounting from the Papacy, Vatican, and all of their cohorts and chief supporters. They have no right to cause such overwhelming despair and suffering for millennia. They have no right to deceive practically everyone on such a grand scale. Why do our national leaders conspire with them and participate in such great evil while pretending to serve the Creator? Why do people still have blind faith in such obvious deceivers and their deceptions while they continue perpetrating such widespread and horrendous evil and abominations?

The time has come to wake-up and prove to these duplicitous scoundrels that you are only temporary marks and dupes.
