This weeks United States Federal government shutdown is a disgrace. The financial growth of our mighty nation is being undermined by greedy politicians. These politicians fear losing their creamy business models melting away in a new economy of internet based information. The old price gouging tactics of corrupt medical insurance systems that catered to an exclusive client base leaving millions out in the cold, and a global economy that was abused by the wealthy to evade taxes and payment of fair wages to their employee base, has given way to an unmasked display of injustice.
The Average American that is the oil of the economic wheel has seen that there is in fact a better way. President Obama inherited a giant sloth of debt and disfunction. He has opened new doors to a growing equitable system for the middle class. These middle class working Americans are holding up the country. When Obama entered the Presidency the middle class was being ground down losing their marginal livings to corrupt employers. These corrupt employers have gobbled up independent small businesses and returned mass market junk for market consumption. Who wants to buy this junk? Creating built in obsolescence, hoping to inflate consumer purchasing by providing cheap underserving products. Excessive lights, bells and whistles have created a loud noisy environment that is unhealthy and detrimental to all veins of society. Itunes music all begins to sound the same. The actual beauty of the music is drained away for a mundane list of tunes that are not remarkable.
Our food supply is being destroyed with sugars and fillers added for profit, lacking in real nutrition causing disease and mental illness. Poisons added to increase profit by enabling a longer shelf life are despicable practices that Americans have allowed by their very own purchasing habits. The taste of food has turned to cardboard. Food has been contaminated by toxins from our environment. Food storage systems allow for meats and vegetables to be stored for months before they arrive, posted as fresh food at our markets.
Unhealthy foam braziers, shoddy shoes, disposable clothing have created skin ailments and endangers our lungs. Natural products are so expensive that only a select few can afford the real deal. Cancer has become rampant due to all these mounting attacks on our body's defense mechanisms.
An oil based economy has polluted our world environment and made the average American person a carbon hog. All the while those at the top of the business model get richer and less compassionate. Look at these Congressional leaders, fat cat paychecks that pay even when they shuck their constituent responsibily. While the working family goes unpaid for days, weeks, months? Risking housing, food and lifestyle stability. It seems the fool who follows the rules and does the right thing is being trampled by a few greedy leaches at the top. The unfounded response to the prospect of affordable healthcare for ones family shows that silent majority at work. Obama is right Americans need decent healthcare at affordable rates. Americans also need to be educated in real choices. We are being lead to slaughter by corporate greed. Stop buying toxic products and start demanding healthy alternatives. Like what? Reducing our reliance on oil, in food, fertilizers, clothing, and transportation, selecting whole foods for your bodies, and demanding that if we buy something it isn't going to need replacement in a short time. I cite the Iphone, when dropped as often happens to phones they easily shatter. Why would anyone accept this? Why does everyone want to wear the same ten tee shirts or shoes?
I frequently hear commercial jets squealing, whining and rattling over my house on their way to the airports nearby. Instead of tightening up the bolts they are just left to fall apart due to vibration over time. Railways just ride the ancient infrastructures instead of improving by creating sound mufflers, and state of the art railcars. Busses are still spewing large amounts of toxins as they rush by to meet the stressed time schedules.
The blame seems to fall on the individual for driving a car, or buying these mass produced over processed products. Even when an entrepreneur devises a new product that could revolutionize the consumer it gets squashed by big business. Toxic soaps, cosmetics, and baby formula are a common state of American industry.
Education is threadbare to the point of shame. Our youth don't even know that they are being sold a bad batch of goods. This trend has gotten so immeshed in our society even grandparents find themselves out voted when offering common sense. Generations raised on processed foods, toxic personal products and plug in air freshners. Why clean it when you can sell one more toxic product to the ignorant masses, just spray it away. I wish I could just spray away our disfunctional government. Perhaps some well placed rat traps would eliminate the poison that has crept into our American society. What a disgrace we have become to our future. Our children deserve better than this. When will the family leaders wake up and smell the fruit trees? Our government officials should all be fired so we can start over with an honorable group of true grassroots leaders that know their neighborhood.
