I was flipping through the channels on the TV today listening to all the big news stations, and heard of more layoffs, and more money problems in the government, and more of our economy doing a nosediveMoney, the true root of all evil, has kept us from what humanity should be.
Have you ever seen this Garth Brooks video ? Its called " we shall be free " and it has a fantastic message, but the only ones that can see the point Garth was trying to make are those of us here at the bottom of life.Greed has consumed our politicians, and our Government. It has made them corrupt, and has made them lose sight of the people's best interest.
What would be best for our economy, and what would help to bring us together ?
The high cost of food, housing, and transportation keeps some folks that work 40 or more hours a week in poverty, yet we elect senators and congressmen to office that make 6 figures or more a year that could care less about the family of 3 or 4 that use 75 % of their bring home pay just to have a roof over their head
We need to eliminate the greed.
Last night on the No Spin Zone, Mr O'Riley had a story about an old man that died in his home because he had no heat. It seems that the power company had shut his power off in freezing temperatures because he was late on his bill
When the man was found, they found cash paper clipped to his power bill. Bill said it was a disgrace, and said it should never happen. He then said he would make sure it would not happen again, and told his viewers if people had a problem with their power bill, send it to him
That's what our country has forgotten about. A line in that song says " When money talks for the very last time, we shall be free " I believe it.
Watch it again and see how you feel
