Actually, I don’t think I am on board. I really do believe this country and the world will fail if the powers that be don’t understand that they are not the only ones on the planet. It really is a travesty the way that the rich actually believe that they are entitled, but not Joe Doe who was the accountant for thirty-nine years in their company and was downsized just before his vestment was completed. Or plain Jane who had the handicapped child and was fired for too many days at the doctor and is now on welfare and living in substandard housing in an unsafe neighborhood. How about Stan Studley. He was the guy who put in twenty-five years as a non-union dock worker only to be told he wasn’t needed because his performance was down. That was due to the accumalitive joint damage from hard labor all those years. I could make a list of these types and others who have been rendered useless and obsolete by these greedy CEO’s. Now, they can’t get a full time job. The older ones might get on at Wal-Mart but those are limited and usually part-time. I, for one, am tired of seeing good people ground in the dirt by these people, who would divide us. Who would have us calling one another names and questioning one anothers reputation and heritage. And before the left gets too smug, Obamacare will not work, as written. All of these misplaced and displaced people cannot afford to buy insurance nor can they afford the tax they will receive if they don’t buy insurance. These internal problems are the very cracks in our society that the terrorists use to wedge us farther and farther apart with fear. One group hates and fears another group, and vice versa. And it’s gaining momentum. So, we the real people of this country, must unite against these attempts, and some successes, to keep us broken into our splintered parts. We must stand together. We must reach out to our diverse neighbors and be the United States of America, once again.
