American families earning median incomes… How many of the are there?
It seems to me that if everyone could put their petty disputes aside (easier said than done, I have trouble recognizing creationists as human beings) we would have quite a bit of collective barganing power. We would also have a serious budget. It’s too bad these trivial conflicts set us so deeply apart.
Im tired of watching these spineless jellyfish flop around in the streets of NY with signage hoping for revolution. Meanwhile the Execs stare down from their penthouses LAUGHING!
Even a fraction of American families alligning would realize significant purchasing power. Just pick your faction, The LGBT, Christians, Blacks, Pro-lifers, Greenies who ever! We are all facing the same problems in the big picture…RIGHT???
Whether your black, Gay, Athiest, whether you make 50k or 200k, whether your kids are in prep school or public, We still have the same dillema??? Unstable economy, real wage decline, diminished standard of living, no jobs!.. Right?? Or am I delusional??
Im sick and tired of people complaining! People make a living out of complaining! Its getting hard to distinguish between the authentic complaints from oppressed citizens and the tools who have a new found ideology to cater to. WTF is really going on?? I cant possibly be the only one to say this. Seems like a natural first thought to me…
Activists despise this so called corpratocracy, this corporate/fed tag team. They spew these ideals to the media and we watch it on netflix and youtube. The endless documentaries and conspiracies. The market is flooded with this stuff. People have the audacity to complain about big business buying legislation… Ive got news for you, If we weren’t so fuckin busy worrying about gun control, or immigration policy or even foreign policy for that matter. WE COULD BUY LEGISLATION TOO! Yes we could, we the 99% have a nearly unlimited budget and inexhaustable manpower. If we could get our heads out of our ass and think clearly. But we would rather focus on insignificant issues. Issues that in the long run are detrimental to us as a whole, meanwhile they exist only to separate us.
The injustices that are happening here such as environmental problems from big industry or educational neglegence are much, much worse in other countries. When they happen in Guatemala or Lebanon they are much more sinister. As soon as the powers that be extend there bubble of wealth and greed beyond the boundries of the superpowers the their respect for human life plummets. I think the answer must start here. Not to be arrogant, but we are the center of the universe.
