White Hot Anger
So we've been angry. White hot angry about the passage of the "Bankruptcy bill" last week. We've been stunned... not just by the non-coverage, but by the Democrats that jumped ship and voted for it.
Bastards. That's all we can say about them. We're now left with no other conclusion that the folks who say there is little difference between the two 'parties' (some party) are right. There isn't.
Joe Biden? That we get: Delaware. He's the credit card companies' bitch. Good for you Joe. Wanker.
There is just SO much to say about the "Bankruptcy bill" that we just haven't known where to start... the bill does nothing but hurt Working Americans and reward the Credit Card companies and their predatory practices that... well it is overwhelming. Simply stunning in its sheer depth contempt for most Americans when they fall on hard times.
This bill only penalizes the Middle Class. If you're wealthy, you're protected when you declare bankruptcy, if you're the classic "Working American" then you better keep praying to Yahweh/The Sweet Baby Jesus/Allah/Buddah/L. Ron that nothing bad happens to you because you're in trouble.
Plus as an added bonus, the fees to file for bankruptcy now go up too! Hilarious. Insult to Injury.
You know what we also find hilarious? Last week in France they were out in the streets protesting & striking against the raising of the 35 hour work week. It is hard to imagine what would get Americans into the streets anymore... really, we're not kidding, we really have NO idea what it would take.
Anyways, our consolation? Well there really is none, but at least the anger over this will eventually be found in the "red states" because that's where folks declare bankruptcy the most and maybe Orrin "No really, I'm not Gay" Hatch will finally get his since Utah has the highest rate of bankruptcy in the nation.
When will folks start to wake up?
