General Motors, (after getting BILLIONS from the US taxpayers) says most of it’s restructuring will be done outside the USA. It’s JOBS (we paid for) will go to Mexico and China… COME ON? If the American PEOPLE aren’t OUTRAGED, ready for ACTION… NOW… then you don’t DESERVE the Rights and FREEDOMS you’re letting SLIP AWAY!
MY American IDEAL... that the PURPOSE of our government should be based on the theory of NATURAL RIGHTS, held by others such as Jean Jacques Rousseau (the reader would KNOW this if they had checked out the ORIGINAL Cyber Bitch Slap post titled “Art of ANGER”)
“We hold these truths to be SELF-EVIDENT, that ALL men are created EQUAL, that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain UNALIENABLE RIGHTS, that among these are LIFE, LIBERTY and the pursuit of HAPPINESS. That to secure these rights, Government are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the CONSENT of the governed…”
ALL... the American PEOPLE need at THIS time is eloquently stated in the Declaration of Independence:
“When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s GOD entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation… whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and institute new government, laying it’s foundations on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem more likely to affect their safety and happiness.”
If the Concerned Citizens of the USA don’t get TOGETHER before GM bulldozes all it’s manufacturing plants into the dirt like that Texas bank did to unsold homes. The Government needs to seize all the property and assets of these Corporations before they drag us into a Third World like economy. Let the American PEOPLE have a shot at USING THOSE ASSETS for manufacturing our own products, give us the cash stimulus to get our goods/services up and going.
Let me give you an example. Since City Hall in Albuquerque, NM NEGLECTED to warn it’s citizens about the growing auto theft problem… (Yea GROWING, ABQ makes Newark, New Jersey look like Disneyland when it comes to auto theft) Instead the Mayor sent city employees out with flyers telling people to let the city tow off their vehicle to generate income needed for Mayor Chavez’s $177,000 per year security detail and sexy girlfriend.
So that TERRIBLE Sunday morning between 2am and 7am when my AMERICAN made, FORD F-250 truck was stolen by a skilled tow truck operator… I WAS RUINED! (and ALL my plans) This was a truck I had recently put over $3,000 in to make it my dream work truck. (increased hauling power, ladder rack, metal toolboxes, new transmission, new brake system. I had it off the road UNINSURED in my parking lot, because it was only approx. $300 away from being road worthy. So it was a TOTAL LOSS! Not to mention it was filled with $1000’s worth of the tools and materials that complement my skills in building trades and flipping old houses…
If the Fed’s stimulus package included (I’m NOT greedy) let’s say, enough to get back what I lost. I’m sure I COULD PUT AMERICANS TO WORK!
Now multiply my situation by the 40 MILLION American’s struggling BELOW THE POVERTY LEVEL and I can’t help but think the stimulus dollars couldn’t have been put to BETTER USE! Really, giving ALL THOSE BILLIONS to a bunch of greed stricken, multi-national aristocratic expatriates and scandalous financial institutions just doesn’t seem to be working for the American PEOPLE, does it?
I TRYING to UNDERSTAND. I'm giving Obama/Biden and the Progressives in Congress a CHANCE to explain because... WHAT THE #*~/?
If one was to observe what our so-called representatives in government are working on, one might get the impression the USA WASN’T facing economic disaster, 2 WARS and Pakistan ready to EXPLODE!
Example: Rep. Linda Sanchez in CA wants to make Internet expression of ANGER a CRIME! So tell me exactly what this entails Congresswomen Sanchez… I need to get a grasp on what your proposing HERE! nO FIGHT, nO WRITE?
Are you saying Blogs, let’s say, like the CYBER BITCH SLAP series will be yanked from the internet and it’s authors put in prison for 3 years? Because if THAT’S the CASE… I need to contact the Lawyer's Guild, ACLU, Rainbow PUSH Coalition, Progressives of America and Carl Douglas…
