My aunt said it all the time. The more things change, the more they stay the same. I guess it was as true then as it is now.
I was thinking about Attorney General Eric Holder and how he was being called on to suffer for a group of people who hate President Barack Obama. It’s the one thing that African Americans have known since the days of slavery. As far as racists are concerned, African Americans are interchangeable.
I wouldn’t begin to try to explain to non-racists how this process works. The mind of a racist defies reason. Obviously, what these people want is a race war. I certainly hope that they will simply wear themselves out.
I’m glad the President has taken a step toward trying to work out our immigration problem. It is unfortunate that the situation has been allowed to grow to such massive proportions. But because a substantial number of congressional leaders have decided that they will not address the nation’s problems, I suppose there is nothing we can do about it.
Actually, what these non-working members of Congress are attempting to do is blackmail the American people. And while they are not doing anything constructive, they have decided to use their time in creating more problems. While our lack of jobs continues to mount, instead of searching for solutions, they are determined to sit the matter out.
I think that while many are suffering from a lack of jobs, it is nothing less than an act of cruelty that their chosen leaders do nothing to comfort them. Members of Congress could at least be seeking ways out of the situation. They could appeal to the millionaires, who are throwing their money into the presidential campaign, to use their money instead to assist the unemployed.
As soon as the election is over, some of us will be getting prepared for slashes in the nation’s budget to pay for the wars. Watching Social Security and Medicare bite the dust and forcing older people to starve and do without medicine will certainly help with population control so that the oil industry can continue to thrive.
Our country is in a terrible shape. The people do not know who to blame. We have a country of millionaires and people in need. The middle class have lost their homes, their retirements and are disappearing, and the politicians have lost their way.
But no, I forgot. I shouldn’t expect those who have grown rich and successful to do anything but enjoy their privileges. It’s not their problem. The poor should have worked harder, or so they say. How about paying their share of taxes; would that help?
Those who survived the Great Depression could have given us some good advice. They would probably have suggested that we work together. Hmm, imagine that.
