Vice President Joe Biden, in a Yahoo interview, was asked what the long term unemployed need to do. To which he responded, “Hang in there.” He also added that we should stop smoking and eat healthier and exercise in order to bring down health care costs. Joe Biden does not live on the same planet as the 99ers.
Three days until the first of February and not one single piece of legislation to help the unemployed in any way has even been introduced in the Congress. In fact the very word job is being said less and less in the mainstream propaganda. Meanwhile the filthy rich continue to steal our resources hand over fist.
I know that every politician has at one time or another said that jobs are the number one issue and that that problem desperately needs to be dealt with. But has anyone heard any of them say exactly when they are going to tackle the number one issue in America? The fact is Congress continues to convene every day and not a damn thing is being done except for the rich’s pursuit of more wealth through deregulation, corporate tax breaks, and the austerity measures they intend to invoke on the rest of us to pay for it.
It is becoming impossible to maintain hope as the blatant theft is not only not stopping but is escalating. Hell, they are not even trying to hide it anymore. The people of this country continue to puzzle me. We outnumber our oppressors 500 to 1, yet we cower before them. Mark my words; this shit is not going to stop until we stop it.
Look at countries around the world wherein their peoples have stepped up and said, “No more.” Other countries are toppling entire governments with minimal casualties and they are not even using guns. And why not? Because they have the overwhelming numbers to annihilate their opposition with or without guns.
We have the overwhelming numbers necessary to reestablish our Constitution and Republic. And every one of us are sitting on our asses and waiting for the government, which has basically flipped us the bird, to just do the right thing. In short we are listening to Joe Biden. Take a good look at that filthy rich son of a bitch and then look around at what he and his fellow rich have done to you, and see if you can convince yourself that all you need to do is just “Hang in there.”
What Biden was saying in his smug manner, as for the unemployed, let them eat cake.
