A Note To Congress
TO OUR CONGRESS:
Is there something wrong here:
I don't know about you, but I was brought up to believe that you took care of your own first; and government was formed to take care of its people first. Maybe something has changed; maybe we don't have enough problems? Maybe, the poor; the homeless; the unemployed and the great unwashed are not Americans – especially, to the rich one percent that now seem to rule our government! But, in any case, even they should know that simple fact – since they seem to apply it to themselves so well:
TAKE CARE OF YOUR OWN FIRST!
But then, the idea of the “Welfare State” doesn't apply to the giving away of taxpayers' money to take care of other countries, that can make money for that "one percent", in more stupid wars, where our soldiers can die defending – what? – a bunch of hateful people, killing each other, over hateful “GODS”, they created!
A proposed 58 billion dollars to the Israeli Defense Ministry, over ten years; and now 221 million dollars to the Palestinians? And, God only knows how many other countries, we're funding with our citizens' money?
Has our Federal Government now become the Middle East's welfare fund (!!!!)?
Oh, excuse me, THIS IS NOT THE WELFARE STATE IN ACTION!
This and Wars in the Middle East, destabilizing it, for more wars, is an endless cycle of wars: and now, handouts for even more wars – Please!!
Meanwhile, we have a crisis of people living in cars and on the streets; war zones in our city slums; poverty and hopelessness, all over these United States; the elderly being robbed, right into their graves, to their last cent, for healthcare and medicines; and you guys in Congress are giving our money to other countries to fight more wars????
How dare you squander our money on your Military-Oil-Industial Complex, while you fight about a few dollars for the poor, disenfranchised and the elderly! You guys are the ultimate hypocrites!
Now that we have lost MAJORITY RULE in the USA, is that what our government of billionaires has in store for us! I served this country for what? To have it rob its own citizens, so the FEW could prosper over the ALL, this country supposedly is!
You people are an absolute disgrace! You make me sick!
Maybe, we should work on finding a way for every country's government to have enough to allow it to take care of every one of its citizens – without handouts from other countries – oh, but that might eliminate the “one percent”, as we know it today and the disparity, they delight in!
