What's Wrong With This Picture

I'm not a rocket scientist, but I see some ugly evidence of what continues to drive our country into poverty.

Why are we bailing out financial institutions who have outsourced all their customer service jobs abroad? Bank of AMERICA and many of the other larger conglomerats have sent thousandss and thousands of job overseas, denying all those here without jobs a fair opportuniy for employment, yet we're worried about them succeeding? Ever wonder why when you call for help you can't understand the person on the other end? It's because you're probably speaking to someone in India or Pakistan. Great isn't it? What kind of government continues to allow this?

And which industry continues to be pounded by the failing economy. Think about it..everytime a business, big or small, closes their doors, moves abroad, or falls to bankruptcy, who takes a hit along with them? Truckers. Who got scalped the most when fuel prices soared. Truckers again. Which of course is ridiculous because diesel is a gasoline by-product and has always been cheaper. But all those trucks you curse on the freeway are the very people who deliver the goods you need everyday. From toothpaste to toilet paper to food, and all those things your order on-line. Each time they lose a contract, they are forced to raise their prices in order to stay in business, which in turn raises the price of the goods they deliver. In the end, we take a pounding along with them.

Just somethings I thought of when I couldn't sleep tonight. That and the Female Senator who took $300 million dollars to vote for Obamacare. When will the corruption, greed, and stupidty end?

Or will it ever?

What really galled me was Mary Landrieu GLOATED about getting the $300 million...that we all gave to the government! She's STEALING from the rest of us and gloated about it, just to get her vote on the Senate floor? What has this world come to? As for the greedy industries...I'd love it if competition drove them out of business. The problem is there are too many businesses doing the SAME thing.

Trucking...you're so right. They've really been pounded and no one's bailing them out.

Obama's paying people for votes...that's what I see...and should be illegal, along with so many other things that are going on right now.

I am there...I am feeling it...Both parties have had their chance to make things right...NOT GOING TO HAPPEN...Our country no longer runs on... truth...honesty...or God...Both parties talk the talk but their actions tell the tale...

Let us put our faith in God not our nations leaders...Neither Party is worthy of our trust...

WARNING: I support the office of the President, not the person currently holding it!
