Twice A Year Rant- Comin' Atcha, Right Friggin' Now..

I try to limit this to twice a year... Lately that has been difficult. I will list the things pissing me off lately, by number (Boy Howdy! There's a guy on the edge..)
1. Laws. Do you how many laws we have? Do you know how many they (Congress,Senate,Etc.) put in place every year? We don't need more laws, we need people to behave to other people. Period.
2. Do you know how many people make money off this system? You have politicians, lawyers, prosecutors, clerks, substance abuse counselors, judges, baliffs, etc. Do you see what I'm saying? It's a friggin' industry- and tax payers are paying the bills..
3. We have gotten away from producing products in this country- we now have service industries taking the major role, rather than "serving" the people that make things. This is not self-sustaining.
4. If tax-payers, fine payers, and people who-do-not-have a choice payers stop paying, this system is defunct.
5.Americans have been kidding themselves for far too long- War is not a functioning economy, and giving money to other nations in need with borrowed money doesn't work either..
6. Oil is our new currency, and we don't have much.. Our weak dollar is killing our economy, driven by high oil, and products not being shipped from other countries we need to function profitably- really.
7. Hard reality will land here shortly- the media is soft peddling how bad things really are. When houses and cars aren't selling, we are not livin' in High Cotton.
Sorry kids, I just had to say this... I feel better, but I'm sorry that you don't! Look out for yourself and your loved ones- The Govment ain'ta gonna!

Someone had to say it. I have been saying it for months. Rose colored glasses only shield the harsh truth for so long before the color wears off. When it hits, the shit is going to splatter. Be forewarned and prepared.

Good Morning. Agreed. Have you read the book..The Fair Tax Book? by Neal Boortz, John Linder.

As a business owner the gov takes over 30% of what I earn.

Sure they are! Just ask any Obama supporter!!

Finn said...

Most people have no idea who is really in charge -- big industry who can afford lobbists and big political contributions. Money talks, and the American public have none.

claudia- Fore-warned is forearmed. Taxpayers have to see the truth and quickly!
deb- The fair tax concept works like mad for taxpayers. The sponges still would get a cut of the action!
dana- I'm a little more radical in my politics- I wish this country would start listening to people who are literate, can read The Constitution, and are not funded by the Republicans- or Democrats!
Finn- So right you are. Corporations will run the world's countries completely- In less than fifty years. And the people will vote it into law.... Because they listen to the daily news and they believe it as written...

John McCain he's the answer.....buahhahahahha, muargharghargh....LOL

republicans ran this economy to the ground in the last 8 years -

war is not the answer

this administration screwed up so bad with Katrina they tore that page out of its history and are hiding it under their pillows

Mortgage lenders _______ fill in the blank

I read the other day that they want to make homebirths illegal.....

Akelamalu said...

It's the same here! :(

Maddy said...

Only twice a year! I have a good old moan every day. [You're a closet optimistic in that case]
Cheers

pinknest said...

sounds like a t-shirt to me!

Amy said...

Amen and hallelujah! I think most of the working class already knows this. It's the fat cats that are still in denial and trying to pack away all of their "hard earned" cash...(expletive deleted)

Michelle Ann said...

What can I say...I live in the state that is the center of all evil. All of it is true.

G-Man said...

You hit the nail on the head with #6. The weak dollar is killing our economy!!!
I agree with you on ALL points...G

snowelf said...

I could not agree more. When I even think about life in the future compared to how things were in the past, and the ruin that has occurred, even in the past 5 years, I feel absolutely hopeless. We as a country are drowning.

You know, they always say that even just one person can make a positive difference, so how come it never seems to be the person with the most power behind them doing it?

TentCamper said...

I copletely agree. I am glad that you think and post about that stuff cuz I HATE to think about it. So depressing...and with me being so unstable and all..

Insane Mama said...

I'm with Claudia, someone had to say it why not you?!!

buffalodickdy said...

DogB- I guess what bothers me about law making in this country are the laws regarding personal choices. Too many laws on the books dictate morals. You make some good points too!
Ake- Alot of our law structure came from Jolly Old England!
maddy- I bitch everyday- I only try to write about it twice a year!
Pink- It would have to be long sleeved to get all my rantings on it!
Amy- I think of hard working single moms like you and what you earn vs. Corporate bonuses that equal your lifetime wages...
michelle- California is like a breakfast cereal- You're either a fruit, a nut, or a flake... Just kiddin- again!
G-man- The weak dollar is definitely affecting alot of us common folk- sometimes without us even realizing it.
Snow- Under our current system, well meaning newly elected polititans find out they have to trade favors to get anything done. In a few years, they have become the problem, instead of the solution..
deb- I have served in various organizations- key word "served". I believe the ancient saying "Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely"..
tenter- Don't go Postal on me!
insaneM- Does me good to write it down every now and again... It's like a primal scream without all the noise..

Odat said...

I don't like reality!

Peace

Queenie said...

Have you had a look whats happening over here recently????

buffalodickdy said...

odat- I used to work for a guy that said (waaay too often!) "Perception is Reality".. He actually was right, but he was still a dick....
Queenie- I know you Brits over there are also political, but you seem to go on- just like us! Doesn't make you less peeved- just like us!

'That Girl' said...

Good rant. Good points. #5 is my favorite. Ever watch the pbs show about the navy ship? That's pretty much their opinion too..

(Love the reference to High Cotton)

HAR said...

You very rarely rant- let it out.

I don't see the next 4 years going any better no matter who wins the election. More of the same BS.
