The only winner from yesterday’s mid-term election was Capitalism. A fact that will, no doubt, please many who voted Republican.
How sad is someone who desperately needs affordable healthcare, yet votes to deny it?
I read recently of one “tea-party” supporter who said he wanted the healthcare bill repealed as he “thought it would create healthcare rationing.”
Yes, a real shame if someone else got more than you did.
That person either completely failed to recognize it was already rationed – unavailable to those who can’t afford the grossly overpriced insurance policies – or didn’t care, so long as his health was well covered.
It would have been – he was a defense contractor.
The most depressing aspect of yesterday was how easily human beings can be manipulated to act against their own interests. For that, we should thank the US media. It did a great job on behalf of its corporate owners. Lies travel just as easily over airwaves as does truth.
There’s no doubt Barack Obama must be feeling brassed off this morning. I would be, in his position. After all, he’s the one who inherited the economic black hole from George W Bush and the Republicans. He’s the one who’s worked for two years to drag this country, kicking and screaming, back out of the mire.
Frankly, if I were him I’d get the hell out of it, and tell the American people where they can stick their presidency. Fortunately for the American people, I’m not him.
There’s an old saying that states something about “citizens getting the government they deserve”.
Americans are hellbent on proving it.
