Bright Lights

 ("Putting Millionaires Before Jobs")

Where is the outrage? Another jobs bill is filibustered into submission by those who have the audacity to pretend that they represent the best interests of this country. Our infrastructure, like our nation, is crumbling in front of our eyes, and yet the $60 billion package  vanished in the blink of an obstructionist's eye.

We see the President and Vice President trying desperately to call us into action. We hear the moral indignity in the words of the pundits on the left. And we read the words of the editorial of the New York Times and other similarly thinking publications.Yet, if we are to believe that the 99% can do good, we have to do better. We have to mobilize today as an army against the endless onslaught of smug Republican moves intended to destroy a President and bring this country to its knees. We have to rise up as one not next November at the polls but today and tomorrow and as many tomorrows as it takes to regain control of our lives. What is happening in the halls of Congress is sickening and it is our duty and our obligation to make certain that there is hell to pay each and every day for those who continue to treat us with such disrespect. Let the bright lights of public scrutiny and scorn look down on those who protect the few at the expense of so many.
