GOP's Solution For America...Privatize It!
The teabaggers and rightwing party want to privatize the whole government! That is exactly what all this hollering about less government is really about. It is not just about cutting taxes for the rich, it's about making the pot sweeter for the future CEO's of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION nicknamed Uncle Sam. This is what their future plans for America are if they get back in power.
Yeah, I know that sounds crazy, huh? Or like another conspiracy theory, huh? But think about it. They want to privatize Social Security and a few other government agencies. Any government agency that is collecting money they want to privatize. Any government agency that is paying out money they want to eliminate it. It's about profits and making money. Good old fashion capitalism and greed...
Back when Healthcare was privatized remember how HMOs which are corporations made the decision who should live and who should die, who could be treated and who would not be treated. They were overriding doctors prescribed medical treatments for patients. In essence the HMOs were making the medical decision instead of licensed Doctors. HMOs did not and would not cover the Doctors prescribed treatment not even in life or death situations.
If they were to privatize Social Security they would be headed by CEOs and the corporations would decide who gets it and who doesn't. It wouldn't matter who paid into it and who didn't. It didn't matter with HMOs who had paid into it when they rejected their claims did it? People lost a lot of money when the economy went bad with those 401K plans too. The CEOs would cut down claims to a bare minimum so that they could get those big bonus payments off the top and if they mismanage Social Security they get an even bigger severance pay check like AIG and the Bankers were giving out.
Why are they so anxious to get their hands on Social Security? Is it really because the funds are running out and because of babyboomers or is it because there is a lot of money to be made? A couple of years ago I tried to tell the people that those Bankers were playing a game and an eye needed to be kept on them. No one paid me any attention, until it came to the light and they almost brought America to its knees. And how big a role does Wall Street play in the game with the up and down scoreboard?
Since all of these corporations are donating millions to the GOP election fund the economy must not be doing too bad. At least it is not doing too bad for the CEOs and those corporations. And yet they want a tax cut while the middleclass and poor are the ones that are really suffering from losing their homes, jobs, etc. I am not an accountant, but looks like to me those millions in donations corporations are making would make decent wages in a paycheck for a few people who are unemployed right about now. I'm just saying.
Corporations have money to burn when it comes to elections when they want a certain party to win, which is like gambling because the money they donate does not guarantee that party will win. However, they are laying off folks left and right who have families to take care of and mouths to feed. Corporations have been known to lay off people when they want to give the CEOs a bonus. How many people did they lay off to donate money in the elections for GOP party?

Questions From A Black Woman's Journey
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
