Move On . Gemma

I have been sulking and pouting for way too long. I have to shake it off, suck it up, rub some dirt in it and whatever else I was told when I was a young'un and get on with it. Grow up! It's only an election.

You know, the funny thing is, I really don't care for McCain...what I didn't want was more socialism in the world we inhabit. Somehow I thought he might be able to stand firm for Democracy, Capitalism and the American Way! I don't think he would have, at least not where controlling the borders is concerned, or national health care or more welfare to everyone except the worker bees....get out! Without work there is no income and without income there are no taxes....get out! Go to work with you! Hi Ho Hi Ho and so forth and so on.

And so I work while my "betters" the ruling class, the elected for life politicians who care not how they win as long as they do, decide how much more they can drag out of our meager paychecks and whether they are at the point where they are immune from the fear of losing. I think that the whole balance of power thing has become unbalanced and we are living in that so called tipping point... there will be outrageous things happening with no outcry from the masses and it will be clear to the powerful that they have even more power than they thought. Once that becomes abundantly clear...hold on Hannah!

Years ago I joked about the amount the government takes, I said that our entire paycheck should be deposited in the government account and they should just send us what they think we need to live. I think that very idea is percolating in the power seats as I speak.

Yes, ma'am. That's pretty much it. I think I will sulk a while longer. And cling to my religion and my...well you know, and be bitter too, since I'm at it.

I better shut up now. ;)

I feel your pain. I suspect all parties, however, are in the business of sucking it all out of our pockets. Whoever is in power, government seems to get larger and more overbearing. The mechanisms of government cost more, which puts greater strain on taxpayers...the cycle never ends no matter who's in office.

Sigh...I often wonder if this is the price of democracy. Either way, I'm glad you raised the issue so eloquently.
