Affirmative Action. Just the name seems to anger some people. The idea that action needed to be taken by our government which had to pass a law to get people to act fair. OK, so if they know that we are human, greedy and will hoard wealth if we can says that THEY KNOW REGULATION IS NECESSARY. They are just too lazy to do their job. If they can cut themselves out of our lives by repeating "BIG GOVERNMENT" stupidly, redundantly, and brainwashing the people who listen to anything that has an Elephant on it (which by the way, represents a large stupid animal which is very strong but has no sense of direction on it's own) then they should be able to realise that those people are SHEEP WHO NEED TO BE LED, but that most of us with a brain aren't like that.
I was in the line at the Bus Terminal downtown the other day when some guy, and I won't say what race he is, but all I have to say is, he cut in line and tried to act like he didn't understand the concept of why there is a line or as if by him being a different race, he shouldn't have to wait in line like everyone else. It was obvious by his appearance where he was from and I get the feeling from the other people whom I have seen in public from that same country that the idea of them having to obey laws is a new thing to them. It seems every time I go out in public one of these people is either taking too long in line or trying to cut in line in front of you. Some other nationalities hate them for that one aspect. They talk too loud and they let their children run around unattended like they don't care if the child is injured or killed. But they are real good about screaming when they get caught neglecting their child and it gets hurt as if that makes up for it. I live in the desert where we have many swimming pools. Every year another family, and it always seems it is this same kind of people, one of their children is found floating face down in the pool. They always make a big pretense of crying and acting SOOOOO sad about it in front of the news cameras. I was in the home improvement store when one of them fell from a cart and landed on her head. They were more concerned with who saw them than they were about the child. They attended to her, after looking about to see who saw it and then making excuses. A lady in the store finally said, "CHECK YOUR CHILD, IS THE CHILD OKAY?" They acted defensive as if she had accused them of something. They were acting guiltly as sin. They quickly left the store. Courtesy and decency towards their fellow citizens is hard for them to grasp because they come from a country that is corrupt. They always try to say, "But, our people, they are such wonderful people where we come from." I have to remind you that they either burrowed out or floated over here in a tin can to get away from "Their People" that they rave about. The excuse that it is only the government who is corrupt. The didn't hire from outside of their country so it is still their people who started acting that way as soon as they got two nickels to rub together. They didn't come here to work, they came here to suck every resource we have to offer dry and take advantage of us. Sorry for ranting, I get tire of it, anyway...
He watched and as the policeman who was keeping some semblance of order in the line looked the other way and was busy talking to someone else, he bolted from the back of the line to the window. It almost made me wonder why anyone even tries to keep order. The policeman evidently caught him before this and saw him standing behind someone who was already at the window. The policeman said, "HEY, you know better than that." It occurred to me that he did although he kept lying and saying he didn't realise there was a line. What did he think he was standing in for twenty minutes previous to that? I was standing in line behind him in the line for about ten minutes. The more excuses he made, the more he proved he was a dishonest bungler. This guy needed a chaperone to follow him around all day and make him do the right thing, because he was obviously corrupt. The fact that any adult human being needs a policeman to stand and make him or her act right, even about petty things like standing in line, is pathetic, in my opinion.
And to make a point this situation wasn't that big of a deal. And if someone can act like that over a place in line, then, how are they going to act over a career? The society we live in has it set up to where we have to fight with each other in order to be treated fairly. The laws they put in place to make things more fair actually make things worse. The employers and the people who work as human resources specialists set it up so that we have to lie and fight with each other over a lousy job. I mean that literally. They get paid to sift it out so they want as much controversy as possible. And we stupidly fight over a lousy job. The idiots that say no one else wants to do manual labor have never met me. I have really had to jump through certain hoops to get a good job and was denied access anyway because some Aristocrat hired their cousin, instead. And then people wonder why working class people are tired of waiting in line for their turn.
Recently we came into a gift for the working class in the form of a president. He is an extremely new form of United States President because instead of talking about being working class, he is not only a person who came from a working class background, but he came from a hard working mentallity (not just some rich guy who says he is working class because he owns a ranch), and he is also our first "minority" president. A few years ago, the McCain camp decided to go after the rich arristocratic families (special interest groups) that own most of the larger corporate structures and who controlled our government through soft money contributions. In other words, non-political action committee money donations that were basically a legal bribe, because after the election, any of these funds that weren't spent went in his pocket. No one had to save them in a fund, no one could redistribute them to tax payers or the people who donated them, they went in his pocket. These contributions had been in action for years and he knew it was something that was wrong. I did an interview with his information laison at the time that this was in the works for a college essay and was told, "He said he is never going to run for office, he doesn't want the job, he has been saying that for twenty years." One of the statements made at the time was that as long as special interests are concerned, if they are in charge, there will never be a minority or female president.
It seems ironic that during this last election a female and a minority candidates were in the lead. John McCain wanted to run against Hillary, he knw with her husband's baggage, the right wing conservatives would never let her get elected. No one counted on the voters. No one counted on the REAL "Joe the Plumber" (the working class people of the United States) stepping up to the plate and delivering 25 dollars each to make this happen. We almost put a female candidate in the office. She would have had to listen to the same rhetoric about how she was only elected because she was female, just like our president has to listen to how he was only elected because he was black. Rich people are beginning to just start to grasp that we can't survive without each other. The Elite don't run the world, just their mouths. When we stop letting them run our country, that type of person is going to fight back. The unemployment rate is the highest ever. Most of that is the, "If you don't play by my rules I am taking my dollies and running home right now." mentality that I have seen so prevalent in the well-t- do. Share the wealth? No, the elite are going to hang on to everything they have until we have learned a lesson. I suggest we hold on until that type of person changes. You can bet they can go without us until it starts hurting their pocketbooks. The question is, how long can we survive?
Right now I can't see the end of the tunnel. You know that there is a deadline. We might start dying before aristocrats do the right thing. It isn't a new concept. It isn't a tired old thing. It is the idea that fair is fair and some people are like baron robbers get away with what they do because they ARE the law of the land. But only in their own little world. When we go home at night and know these people aren't the answer to the problem but are the cause, we have already won. If everyone who is hurting decided to forma company and each of them was part owner, it would be a landslide for the working class. The conservative people who are by definition of being conservative: * Conservative:
conservative - 8 dictionary results

I highlighted the first three definitions to say for a fact that the core of conservatism is to be "...disposed to preserve existing conditions, institutions, etc. or to restore traditional ones, and to limit change." I want you to pay close attention to the last four words of that definition. And to limit change doesn't sound progressive to me. They can holler all they want to, for as far as I am concerned, they would love to see nothing progress. You can't have progress without change. Some people are never going to allow change if they can help it. Affirmative action means allowing everyone who can to get a chance. Some people are never going to imaganie that it can ever happen. I begin to wonder if they even can grasp the concept of change. I call them selfish and self centered and they find that insulting. What else can I say about someone that can't attribute the whole world as being responsible for their success. That means that they believe that their own efforts and none of the workers who made their products and produced their good and services, nor any of the millions of customers matter at all in their minds. To them being selfish is a way of life and a self centered capability of ignoring everyone else so that they have made it into an artform. In America we need a renaisance that won't happen until the selfishness stops. In the movie with Will Smith called "Independence Day" everyone pulled together to help each other. I am afraid that in reality, in America, narcissm is so prevalent that we would have to see most of us die. The kind of governing body that finds it necessary to lie to the public in order to do what they consider is the right thing has to come to grips with the fact that if you are lying about it, you are trying to hide something, and if you are trying to hide something, then obviously you are trying to hide something because you know that it is wrong. Period. Trying to ignore everyone else on earth is what caused the 9/11 attacks. Trying to think no one else matters is what causes terrroism. It unfortunately seems the only way to get our attention, so it is like the child who is ignored until they end up killing their whole family to get attention.
Now that the election is over we see all the dirt on John McCain and Sarah Palin. Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, the media whore who staged the whole fake interview in hopes of trying to throw the election McCain's way, is an example of the type of people who can't except change. "HEY JOE! Lying is not the right way to start a relatationship with the public!"
Does John Q. Public like liars? Some of us do as long as we don't have to admit to ourselves that that's who they are. We lie to ourselves to allow us to believe in people who are completely scandalous. Wurzelbacher is trying to run for some form of public office now. He thinks that being a liar in a smear campaign is a good introduction for a politician. Maybe he is right. I want that to change. We will see if it actually can.
