Unemployment Is Killing People

Post by Guest on Wed May 23, 2012 5:38 pm

Unemployment is deadly. The effects of the capitalist boom-and-bust system seriously damage millions of lives. But with an almost daily bombast of propaganda about terrorism, the populace lives in fear, while wondering how they will make their bills, ground down between anxiety over ghostly terrorists and eviction, or how to put gas in their car, or afford a bus pass. Hopelessness stalks the land, not Al Qaeda. And yet the politicians in D.C. care little or nothing about the suffering their policies cause. Indeed, their pockets are lined with campaign donations from corporations that routinely layoff hundreds of thousands, and ship many thousands more jobs overseas.

When the real number of unemployed is finally unveiled, how will DC act. I have come to the conclusion, nothing will change, no matter how desperate people become, unless the sheer volume of the unemployed starts to scare them and it starts to hurt them financially, then you will see something happen. It hurts to admit that, but I really believe that's the only way they will help people.

I think its killing people too. I am disabled due to poor medical care in my 20s and not having health insurance. Even this week, I had to use a teeny emergency fund [my last 50 bucks] to eat. I think the stress and more is going to give people shorter life spans. I think the war on terror was a hoax and do not fear the "terraists" as much as I do what is going on here and the poverty. When food prices go up, things are going to get scary.

Marilyn, I don't know all the details, but Greg is well known by most of our moderators/admin on this forum. I believe he still has his own website for the 99's Union. I haven't followed it closely, but MaryKay or DesparateinRI can give you more details. One great american guy for sure. He is always speaking out for the 99's in every media he can get an interview with. Some of the Fox guys have really tried to make him look like a flake, or just that he is mis taken with his facts and so forth. He has taken them on courageously.
