Do YOU know that YOUR housing security, YOUR retraining security, YOUR health care access security … YOUR security is dependent upon YOUR access to family wage jobs and or YOUR access to family wealth subsidizes, the lottery, and the kindness of strangers?
YOUR security is Green.
Something I’ve struggled with for the last few years is that the Democratic Party has kind of deliverd the goods a bit, or, protected the goods a bit, on gay marriage, on Plan B, on Lilly Ledbetter – and as a 52 year old white guy, it is easy for me to say – ‘it ain’t enough’.
I’ve voted Dem POTUS in 8 of 9 POTUS elections in my life, and I’ve voted for countless Dems. I have voted to protect unemployment, which I’ve been on several times. I have voted to protect retraining, which I’ve been on twice. I have voted to protect financial aid and student loans, which I’ve used 4? 5? times in my life. I’ve voted to protect public education because it helped me and, now it keeps me employed helping others! I’ve voted to protect food stamps and welfare cuz I was on all of it in the 70’s as a teen! Sheesh – maybe that welfare thing is why those other programs were so important to me!!!
BUT, when the Democratic Party sells us bottom feeders of the bottom 75% and 80%* out to the American Health Insurance somethign (AHIP), Pharma, Wall Street & Geithner & Summers & Bernake & AIG, Rahm & Arne & TFA Kopp – KIPP, what are we fighting FOR?
When the Dems sell us out to the big boyz & kind of “protect” the fraying pretty much shot … ha ha ha …safety net, when they sell us out and throw some bones our way on Plan B or gay marriage – WHERE is this going?
Company Town A – the 1/2% isn’t accountable or responsible, has all the rewards, and our bosses are a bunch of racist, sexist, homophobic 13th century white guy droolers who like to kiss rich guy butt.
Company Town B – the 1/2% isn’t accountable or responsible, has all the rewards, and our bosses are a bunch of non-racist, non-sexist, gay friendly diverse yuppies who like to kiss rich guy butt.
I know that MY housing security, MY retraining security and MY health care access security is dependent upon MY access to family wage jobs, the lottery, and the kindness of strangers, all of which equals good f’king luck.
I’m DONE with Democrats who are offering me Company Town B.
Can we have a The Green Security Party? Make The Community Work Well Party? Leaders who are managing community green for the community instead of the parasites skimming the community? We surely have “leaders” making sure the Green is going in their pockets for their nice houses in their nice hoods!
