For me there is no longer a right or a left in government. There is only pro human/humane and anti human/humane. With the latter in the majority.
The oppressiveness of the climate today is astounding to me.
Keep our country divided. Keep people fighting for individual interest by attacking one another. Keep our people in debt. Let us have the following:
The privileged vs. the not so privileged.
Majority vs. Minority
Religion vs. Religion vs. Non-religion
People are fighting the minimum wage increase, instead of fighting for it across the board. How ironic. One cannot live on minimum wage, so go get an education they say. So we got an education to get more than a minimum wage job. Now we have a mortgage size student loan at an interest rate higher than a bank. We are brainwashed in this country to believe we are lucky to have a minimum wage job…or two, because no one can live on one. Be thankful you at least have that, they say. The minimum wage today does not keep up with inflation. Up to 1996 the minimum wage was equal to inflation with $4.75 equaling $4.75 and todays $7.25 equaling $4.82 (http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0774473.html). The minimum wage average has decreased in value 12.1% from 1967 to 2011(http://stateofworkingamerica.org/chart/swa-wages-table-4-39-minimum-wage-1960-2011/).
So the government needs its money, so let us have the sheeple fight each other. Then we can continue to pull the wool over their eyes.
