We Need A U-Haul Movement

What the heck is wrong with President Obama?  Has someone kidnapped the Barack Obama that ran for President and replaced him with a clone?  Because it looks like to me he is more interesting in winning the approval of the wingnuts than he is the people who put him in office.

I've been trying to hold my peace, but enough is enough!  Heat is a mandatory basic need for people to survive.  Well...Mr. President I sure hope you got a big enough refrigerator in the White House because the poor might have to come live with you until the cold weather ends.  I'm just saying. 

If he adds cuts to the energy program to the budget, he won't have to worry about anyone coming out to vote, especially seniors and poor people because they'll all be froze like popsicles.  With people out of jobs and losing their homes, many of the what used to be the middleclass will be in the same shape.

Does the president  realize that the weather has been extremely cold in the United States?  Oh I forgot, the White House has nice big fireplaces all thoughout the White House and the electric bill is paid by the taxpayers.  Heat is the last worry for the President and Congress because Capitol Hill and the White House is warm and cozy, not to mention AirForce One, and those Presidential Limousines while chilling and drinking wine.

What we need is a "U-Haul Truck Movement" where all the poor people and senior citizens rent a U-Haul truck and not march, but ride to the White House, and move in. 

Why would politicians think that it is wise to cut energy program when the price of heat and electricity have tripled. Senior haven't had a cost of living raise for the last couple of years.  I don't know what report those folks up on Capitol Hill are reading, but it must be the one from the 1920s because it sure isn't the one for 2011. Matter of fact, all of those reports must be for the 1920s. 

What other big ideas do our politicians have in store for us?  I mean should we go back to horse and buggy too since the price of gas is rising.  Should we go back to the old fashion splitting logs for heat?

Politicians have no ideas.  The only solution they come up with every time is cuts for the poor.  Yet, they can come up with billions for a war that the American people did not want or ask for and money for elections. Cuts for the poor is not any well thought out solution, it just the same old repetitious suggestion that has been used so much until it is like a broke record and the poor know it by heart.  The name of the song is Its Gone Be Painful." That's always the clue to poor people that the politicians are getting ready to snatch away what little crumbs they have.

For once I wish politicians up on Capitol Hill would come up with an idea and I'm talking about a fresh, real idea, good idea, instead of the same mentally lazy, stale ideas over and over. Nothings changed!  It's the same playbook and outdated manual that's been used all throughout history by every single politicians.

Why do politicians hate seniors, poor people and fatherless children?  Looks like they are not too fond of the middleclass either.  Well...what used to be the middleclass that is.

We live in a youth-oriented society. It's always been that way. Hence seniors are seen as out of date people, old and not useful.

In a capitalistic society the poor will always get the short end of the stick. They command no influence or power financially or politically in a system that punishes and destroys the weak and rewards the strong. We are living in recessionary times where the people at the bottom will suffer the most.

Don't blame Obama for being part of the system. Who were you expecting, a bm who ACTUALLY cared about his people? I haven't seen that kind of a person since MLK and Malcolm X. In case you didn't know it, both MLK and Malcolm are dead.

I noticed Malcom and Martin are both dead. They are dead because they honestly cared about people. The only thing I can say is maybe President Obama doesn't want to end up like them.

I agree with you Granny! WTH is going on! They're squeezing the life out of us!

Love your cartoon! That's just how I feel too! It's been very unseasonably cold here also. Right now the winds are raging outside and my fingers are actually numbing.

I am dealing with a flu that has been lingering for the past few weeks, and it has been extremely cold to me too, which doesn't help. That's partially the reason why I haven't been posting too much.

Redeye:

You're probably right. I was thinking that same thing.

Capitalism is something else isn't it. It's more poor than it is any other status. If all of them were to wake up and unite, we might have a revolution for real. Nevertheless, I plan to do my part and speak up for them because they need a voice too and many of them vote too in spite of what people may think, and seniors definitely vote.

Redeye, That was hilarious about the: "I noticed Malcom and Martin are both dead. They are dead because they honestly cared about people. The only thing I can say is maybe President Obama doesn't want to end up like them."
You damn right!!!
