Good article... I didn't realize that Wall Street bought the police. Who are people supposed to call if it's the Wall Street bankers that are doing something illegal? I guess they could call on: ::drum roll:: The Occupy Wall Street Protesters! (Note, they will have to hold a general assembly for each minute decision and will in all likelihood never get organized enough to actually do you any good.) =P

It worked for the plebeians. Especially when they refused to do any thing until they got rights.

Note: If you're going to slam into anything head on in a car, let it be a nice, soft, grassy hill... An hour and a fee later we were back on the road and we just made it home! Also, everyone is fine... medically speaking.

Glad everyone is alright... except maybe the grassy hill. No one ever things about the hills. :(

Only when you visit small children will you be greeted with: "You can bring a birthday cake, if you want." ... No one was having a birthday. <3

Yesterday I tried to do something very silly. I tried to listen to a interview with Republican Mitch Daniels. He's rather popular among Republicans, but don't let that make you think he's anything special or different. No. I was listening to a conversation about economics, so I thought I might be safe since Republicans and I don't get along on social issues. I was wrong. Listening to Mitch Daniels talk about economics is like listening to someone tell you over and over again that they're better than you. He kept talking about 'maintaining upward mobility in this country,' which was his excuse for not raising the taxes on the rich. The thing of it is, I don't see this upward mobility. I hate to use myself as an example, but I was born to a construction worker and an assistant teacher. They managed to send me to college somehow and I got my bachelors, which they never got the chance to do... Do you know where I've been getting interviews for? Wegmans. I like Wegmans, don't get me wrong, but I hardly see it as a step up from my parents' situation. All my life as I was told if I could just avoid getting knocked up and make it to college I'd get a piece of paper and rise above this whole living from hand to mouth thing. But apparently, I'm just not trying hard enough. What hole did Mitch Daniels dig himself out of? Have any politicians had to pull themselves out of being poor? Well maybe not, but at least the Democrats I've listened to aren't telling me over and over again I'm just poor because I'm not good enough.

It's not just Republicans I've found who are ignorant to believe being poor is a self-inflicted predicament. People who have not had to struggle in their life tend to share this perception. People who have even just a small sense of a financial safety net (usually just their parents) tend to be totally oblivious to the situation of not having any support to fall back on. My experience is that their notion of poor is way different than mine.

I understand where these silver spoon in mouth Republicans think they are coming from. It is true that many people don't seek their potential. But it will always be my most dire understanding and belief that no person wants to be poor.
