Republican Governor of Maine, Paul Lepage, is spearheading the latest assault on the victims of the 2008 toxic mortgage meltdown, more commonly known as the depression. You see Lepage wants the 100 million unemployed to get off their lazy asses and get a job, and to help them do so he wants to end unemployment benefits, food stamps, and SSI.
In attacking those on Social Security Supplemental Insurance, he indicated that many long term unemployed were seeking out this benefit rather than going back to work. The standard for receiving SSI says a person must be debilitated to the extent that he or she cannot be employed in his or her field in the current job market.
I guess if we wanted to look at this realistically there are 86 million to 100 million unemployed who fit into this category as they cannot be employed because there is no job for them in the job market, thus their disability would come down to being unemployed in a jobs market with no jobs.
These sleazy elitist neo-cons, after having protected and refused to prosecute the perpetrators of the greatest international theft to ever occur on this planet, are now vehemently attacking those whose lives have been destroyed through the actions of their cohorts. They are now asking the question, “What is the matter with these unemployed people? Why are they refusing to accept a slave wage for their labor?”
These arrogant bastards are spitting in the faces of 100 million Americans that they have out and out stolen from. And what sits at the heart of their latest effort? A further extension of the Bush era tax cut for the top 1%, another $2 trillion of stolen wealth that they will get to keep over the next ten years. You see they do not quite feel secure yet with the record profits they have been maintaining while our middle class is being destroyed.
They are the job creators who create no jobs except for those in the other countries they have moved our industry to. They are the entrepreneurs who create no new businesses except in the countries where they have moved our industry to. They are the industrialists whose only goal is to steal more of our natural raw resources to be manufactured in their plants and factories in other countries.
We know who these people are. They are up and in our faces 24/7 on the idiot box. The only question is how they continue to walk our streets unmolested. It sure as hell is not because they are courageous, as we pay for the Gestapo that stands between us and them.
When we take back our Republic we must punish these despicable parasites with brutality. Until then we must speak out on the internet and let these cowards know that they are going to face justice for the crimes they have committed against us.
God bless this Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.
