Why would any poor person…

Published June 23, 2022 by Nan Mykel

Why would any poor or middle class person and/or those who love democracy want gun – toting money – grubbing liars bent on power who buy elections?….Huh?  Tell me that,  — who carry guns without a permit, bent on cuts to social security, medicaid, medicare, Obamacare, and get paranoid about science (not recognizing technology as science)….Who create a teacher shortage,  castrate public education, arm teachers whose anxiety level is already high and target those who aren’t mirror images of ourselves?  Manipulation is the word of the day, but few call attention to it meanwhile…

….who automate jobs to avoid paying better salaries while incarcerating women who choose not to bring more innocents into this crazy, overpopulated world.  (They say Amazon has several stores without living employees, and that WalMart has automated floor scrubber/waxers, in addition to self-checkouts.  When will restaurant hostesses become robots?)  More babies, fewer jobs.  That road leads to using surplus humans for wartime gun fodder.  They should bring back  Soylent Green on screen.

Ever wonder  why federal prisons are more like hotels and more state prisons are privatized?  Would  some of our errant politicians misbehave so boldly if they feared incarceration in a state prison?  A number of evangelicals have given  religion a questionable reputation and daily life is flooded with manipulative phone calls.  Many of us avoid answering the telephone these days.  (I pick up the phone but don’t say a word.  They somewhat quickly hang up, possibly afraid of being recorded.)  Alas, transparency appears to be a thing of the past.  And I haven’t heard from fact check recently.  Has it been bought out along with the social networks?   Or have we come to expect that everyone lies these days? Maybe they’ve begun charging too much. And Fox network continues snarling, or so I’m told.  I have to throw away most of my mail due to bleeding good causes that are making me bleed.  It’s also rumored that we’re not going to prepare ourselves for an expected visitation by a more deadly and contagious virus in the future.  I suspect the filibuster has not turned out to be a good idea for democracy, and castrates our best hopes.  I won’t breathe a word about the Supreme Court.  Apoplexy is not on my menu today.  Won’t mention selling Mother Earth to the highest bidder, either.

I swear off blowing my top like this and then the downright nastiness afoot in our country creeps up again and I’m ashamed of myself for letting off  so much steam.  But hey, it’s better than packing a pistol this very day.  In Ohio they’ve rduced the training required for teachers who want to carry their gun at schoolpack at which Ohio law permits me to do.  Mea culpa.  I was going to apologize for name-calling, but let’s see…money grubbing? Liars? gun toting?  How else can one say it?
