american dream is dead

It’s gotten so tough that I have to ask our 21 month old daughter to help out around the house. Shorena and I have barely been back 2 or 3 days and we have a half a dozen situations that require our coordinated and concerted efforts including health and insurance issues, booking appointments and case management issues, work and day care, school, housekeeping, taxes, my Florida license, bills and the list goes on. We barely are able to keep up and we’re constantly working with only a few hours at the end of the day to unwind.

Is that the American Dream. 2 weeks in Florida and then slaving away under stress for the rest of the year.

Then in the last day or so I’ve watched (on TV or live in person), riots in the England, borderline violent demonstrations outside of Verizon Stores, listened to the owner of a car service say he us to have 8 drivers and now has 3 (of which he is one), attended a party for a worker at a PR firm who was downsized after 19 years, and more. In Florida, despite the glut of houses that are for sale, mortgages are hard to come by. The banks are perpetuating the housing crisis.

Then I think about all the reality shows on television. With Snookie Polozzi, American Pickers, Storage Wars, Dog the Bounty Hunter, Jerseylicious, Real Housewives, Basketball Wives, Mob Wives, My wife, your wife…… has reality set in yet?

What about the geopolitical situation? Inasmuch as the United States is now engaged in five wars in the Arab World with others possibly planned we have to ask ourselves who is making these decisions and why. There is no doubt that the military industrial complex benefits greatly from such policy. But what about the children of America?

What kind of world are they going to inherit. With the housing market crippled, jobs being shipped overseas at a staggering rate, unemployment far worse than what is being reported, banks reaping record profits and still raising fees – it is understandable why public confidence in our elected officials is at an all time low.

And now the Iowa Straw Poll. Every four years it’s the same rhetoric. As throngs of people flocked to get a glimpse of Barack Obama in public gatherings reminiscent of Hitler in Germany leading up to World War Two and I ask the same question that Ronald Reagan asked…. “Are you better off than you were four years ago?”

Clearly, at least 9 out of 10 of the people I know can passionately state that they aren’t.

Owing to the violation of our laws with regard to warmaking undertaken in pursuit of aims which are not the of the American people but of the Elites without consent from Congress (Libya), is it possible that we will see another American Pearl Harbor which would set more of the globalist initiative in motion.

The run on our national debt – a fraudulent agreement between the bankers and their derivative schemes which the politicians have signed onto to create 600 trillion dollars in artificial debt is akin to the taxes that the patriots in Boston rebelled against.

Can you say Tea Party? Hmmmm….

Can Michelle Bachman do anything? What about Mitt Romney who came in at 3 percent. I would suggest that only Ron Paul, who received 27.5 percent in the Iowa Straw Poll is perhaps the only Politician that is being forthcoming and honest about what has taken place, and has the political guts at the age of 76 to do something about the artificial debt that has been created and the necessity to audit the Federal Reserve and to say no to the Banks who are strangling Americans.

Then there is the warmongering and profiteering that is going on is extra constitutional and perhaps treasonous and yet there is no one in Washington with the will or the guts to stand up for us. Who is going to do it? The necessity to curtail funding of extra-constitutional and extra-legal presidential administrative power has reached a boiling point. We need to combat these violations by every means possible and make these coming 2012 elections about more than mindless rhetoric and empty promises.
