It hadn’t rained in awhile, before the other day. Been raining in other ways though. A confluence of forces has been pummeling many good people, and their good intentions. Those who have only wanted to raise their families, live in harmony with life, and leave a positive imprint on this earth before finding their solitary way down the road. The hammer of politics, the social engineering, corporate greed, and the personal ambition of ruthless people have been working together to cripple the lives of the honest, of the innocent. As it has always been, really. As it has always been. But never, in my lifetime, like today. I have not yet been personally, directly affected, with a loss of job or home, or healthcare. I have been fortunate in that way. I do, however, feel the terrible anxiety, the fear even, of others who have been affected, and of those who expect to be, or just don’t know. It has touched me, in that very real sense, but indirectly. Directly, more so by the higher cost of goods and services, reminding me, as it has everyone, that the dollar does not go as far as it once did.
The general climate in our country (world) has been undermining the hope that once existed among ordinary people, who now understand that their ability to even eke out a living is becoming greatly compromised. The well-to-do face, what they consider to be, catastrophic decline of their own. Their 130 million has suddenly become worth about 100 million, and how can one ever expect them to live on that? But hey, they’ll be alright, they are, like the politicians, all connected to each other, and they share the password to the vault among themselves.
What you and I can do is to stop energizing the corruption that landed us in this jungle. Stop relying on incompetent, and corrupt, politicians to fix the mess we’re in. They have squandered our taxes, stolen our hope, and are rapidly creating our dependence on government, a system so corrupt that it can not even sustain itself, let alone us. We all know, and have known, that government is in collusion with the International Corporate Cartels. We all know that deals are made between politicians, mega-companies, foreign governments and the wealthy.
We must find ways to support one another, rather than to support the ‘system’. We must begin to think for ourselves once again, to act independently of the ‘leaders’. We must never trust them for our wellbeing. To do so would be foolish, and reckless. They don’t care about us. They talk out of both sides of their mouths, they rob Peter to pay Paul, and then they come back and rob Paul. They manipulate their own images like a hooker putting on her wig, pumps and makeup before hitting the street. They care about sustaining their careers, and profiting from them however possible.
My God people, Hillary Clinton is our Secretary of State, the person who represents the U.S to other nations around the world, a woman whose husband has lined their off-shore bank accounts with untold millions of dollars from foreign governments, corporations and wealthy individuals. Does that sound like the definition of a Public Servant? I’ll say it again folks, Hillary Clinton is our Secretary of State. She was almost President. Does anybody get that? What is wrong with us? We must say no to government as it exists today. We must no longer participate in this kind of charade. We must turn our backs on them, shun them, let them wallow in their own corruption, and in their own conceit. Let them die on their own vine, of their own vanity and greed.
The audacity of hope? Please! Let the President vet, and scrutinize, his own cabinet appointments, and his motivation for appointing them, and then talk to me of hope.

Is anybody listening?
