      What makes me saddest of all things in the world is this: In the vast majority of situations, the right thing to do morally is the right thing to do in terms of broad self-interest, and yet we don’t believe that and we do the wrong thing, thinking we must, or thinking that we’re making […]

I got your tone right here for ya

I’m so glad I don’t have cable.  The last thing I want to see today is a bunch of civility bullies taking to the fainting couches because the demographics are swinging against the nitwit religious right who were duped for 30 years into selling our birthright for a mess of social issue pottage.

Oh, so now we’re not supposed to raise our voices as the forces of meanness, inequality and exploitation double down on the “compromise” and “bipartisanship” crap.  Hey, I don’t know if you guys know what it’s like to be formerly middle class, a college graduate in a highly technical field with years of experience who can’t find a job without taking a steep pay cut but that would include everyone I know.  Frankly, I’m fed up with the lies about how the wealthy just can’t find good help anymore and if you guys think I’m going to let the decades of surplus social security payroll taxes I PREPAID go without a fight, you’ve got another thing coming to you.

We’re not going to quietly and obediently eat our poisoned mushrooms just because we are getting in the way of the job exploiters’ desires to be free of any responsibility to behave like decent Americans and human beings.  We’re going to ask loud and clear:

“Why do the rich hate America?”

People who tut-tut us about our “tone” might find their asses defenestrated.
