Are Democrats and Republicans really parties of the people? No, they are actually slumber parties. Both staying up all night talking, not getting anything done.
We're all in this together, aren't we?
The world is changing at such a rapid pace, innovation is everywhere, so why not in the government? We're running around in circles. Everybody is down on the government, and that's a good thing. Because we clearly need a new system for how to live together on this planet. I really see something dramatically different in our future. How about a system based on love for one another? Why not? It's really age (the one we live in now) appropriate.
The seesaw is way off on one side. The extremes of poverty and wealth are more extreme than ever. The world is owned by corporations! So is the media. It's so hard to find out what the truth is and make an informed decision about anything these days. Infomation has been replaced by agendas.
Celebrity judges deciding small claims cases make millions of dollars a year, way, way, way more than our Supreme Court judges who make major decisions that affect the course of our nation. (Judge Judy 25 million per year, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court $223,500 per year.)
I don't qualify for a traditional small business loan because, well the not so funny but true answer is that I can't afford it. This follows the same wierd logic that makes poor people pay higher interest rates, and keeps many people from being able to buy a house just because they don't have a large down payment. These same people work just as hard as anybody else, and make monthly rent payments in the same amount as mortgage payments!
What would have happened if all that money given for corporate bail outs was given to citizens!
Bail us out of credit card debt, college loans, fuel bills, etc. Give me a bonus for being a good parent and citizen.
I wish the government had done nothing and let the whole economy crash, land on it's face then get up again, wipe off the giant nose bleed, and start from scratch, minus the swagger.
Something major has got to shift. The answers may be simplistic, but as an artist I know that the simpler the design, generally speaking, the better quality. When things are simple there is nothing to hide behind or within.
So simply put, if each person recognized the FACT of our interconnectedness, and internalized the concept of the oneness of humankind we would at least be pointing ourselves in a forward facing direction. This whole us against them gridlock in the world is really getting old. Wake up and smell today's coffee!
