I DARE you to respond

I got to work, and like I usually do, I checked email, and did a quick scan of the news. First thing I noticed was the tax and budget cuts that just passed. Republicans are once again using their power to pass things through which are bad for almost everyone except the rich, and Dems are votign against it, but the reps just sit back and pass what they want because they have the numbers to do it.
The most recent bills passed regarding taxes and budget cut the money to programs like WIC, food stamps, student loans and grants, farm assistance, and other worthy low-income and blue collar worker causes. For instance, something like 14 million families that currently receive food stamps or public assistance are going to lose it. They're even cutting school lunch assistance. So, a bunch of families that had trouble paying for things already now aren't even going to be able to pay for their kids to eat at lunch. Yup, it sure seems like our prez and the reps are looking out for the common American.
Oh, and they cut taxes to oil companies. The Dems proposed a bill which would create more taxes on higher profits for oil companies, and Bush said he'd veto it if it passed. How corrupt is that?!?!?!? Oil companies are making huge profits at the expense of the hard working american. So what does Bush do? He says if we try to get some of this money that his friends are making, he's going to veto it.
Isn't it amazing how W and his little republican cronies are "looking out for the average American"? They give tax cuts to their friends, making millionaires into billionaires, while the hard working guy that provides food to the world, or the guy that works two minimum wage jobs to provide for his family go hungry? How is that fair?
I dare you to respond, either for or against my opinion.

Nice thing is, your Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeldt initiatives for Homeland Defence will ensure that the lowliest Deputy can disappear your ass if you even look sideways at the 'Establishment'.

America is being bum-fucked by it's own electd Govt. and it hasn't even noticed, yet.

The moment any private citizens try to organise themselves, resist passively or repond actively (demoes etc) you will realise exactly what a favour Osama Bin Laden did for the USA's 'Nomenklatura'.

A smart regime knows that you must either cushion your underclass from the desperation that causes agitation, or, you must create processes and structures to repress all agitation. Every communist country eventually failed to keep it's citizens down, but I think the US 'State' is looking for a happy, econimical medium between coddling and cudgelling...

After all, policing, paramilitarism and the defence/security industry is turning into a funky money-spinner for certain lobbies and their pet-politicians...

in my opinion, our "elected officials" don't even run the country anymore...they just do what the major corporations TELL them to do
