Corruption in Washington is something most people are aware of. The level of corruption taking place in present day is a whole different ball game. They sure do hide it better then they used to. It seems everyone in Washington or that works for the federal government has their hands out. If a nuclear facility was dumping radioactive material in your drinking water do you think the EPA would not go for a bonus check in lieu of doing his or her job? If you believe they would report that company and not take the money you are really naive. This indeed has happened just recently in Vermont. You realize that this debt deal everyone is talking about is a diversion to get more money and for congress to steal their way to the top. These diversions are what makes this country keep moving. Think of the Casey Anthony trial, in 2008 out of 16 states 180 children were murdered by a parent. The focus on this trial was another diversion. Playing on peoples emotions is something I mentioned earlier, this is one example. People were furious with Casey Anthony, yet this happens more often then people think and it is not televised like this trial was.
Sure the economy is in shambles and since everyone in government has their hands out, it will never be saved. The only answer they have lets print some more money. It is just like a greedy child in a toy store. One toy just is not enough for these guys. Our money is worthless, good paying jobs are a thing of the past, people are going hungry, homeless, and losing families and for what? So those suits in Washington can work as little as possible and steal money. Let us not forget the fact that they get paid when they are out of office (for the rest of their lives).
The US government spent 33 billion dollars in 2007 on foreign aid. Yet 744,000 people were estimated to be homeless that very year. 1 billion of that foreign aid could have went to those 744,000 people to at least feed them and give them some form of shelter. What is this country coming to? People are homeless, hungry, and jobless but lets not help those people we may need Cairo's resources tomorrow that billion should go to them. What is good for our people is good for our country. Of the countries we send money to not all are allies. We can easily get blown to bits by one of the countries we fund.
I have wrote about the government giving to corporations before, but now is not the time. Why on earth would the US government help fund major corporations that net billions themselves? I read the budget deal, it will change how anyone on social security lives in 2012. However, it did increase the pell grants for education which surprised me. Obama got something for himself. The whole thing is upsetting. People you need to pay attention to what is going on. The United States is trying to consume your mind by giving out false information and brainwashing you with gadgets from China.
Now is the time to do something, no one is going to hold your hand. Every American needs to stick together they are screwing everyone. Oh, except for the wealthy and foreign countries. If you want to be proud of your country no time like the present. Either do something or watch Americans get dumbed-down. That is what is happening.
