I am getting really tried hearing about financial reform. Does anyone truly know what financial reform means beyond the big banks and financial institutions? Then again do they? How are we going to create financial reform when the same legislators can’t seem to find the time to read the Arizona immigration bill. Next thing we know Debbie Gibson will be running for President. I love you Debbie and you’ll be great to look at, but seriously?
Whatever happened to due diligence, debate and public opinion. It makes me sick when people suggest to turn on Fox News, CNN or MSNBC to hear debate. Are you serious? When was the last time you were invited to be part of the panel?
When I hear everyday American’s talking about financial reform it makes me want to laugh out loud. Come on, is the everyday person truly going to see any change in the way their banks to do business with them?
Once again the big media outlets have sucked us into the spin that some sort of change is going to take place whether for good or bad. Somehow it’s going to make everyone’s life that much better or worst. Have you asked yourself before getting all hot and heavy about financial reform as to what happened to all the stimulus money? After spending over a trillion dollars with the intention of creating jobs, the unemployment rate continues to go up.
Let’s talk about real financial reform. How about stopping this current legislation from spending taxpayers money without listening to the people. How about if banks stopped charging overdraft fees when you try to use your debt card without having the money in your account. How about getting rid of all the ridiculous fees the banks continue to charge its customers. Or how about getting rid of the incredibly high interest rate credit cards on the market as well as ridding the world of predatory lenders who call themselves “Pay Advance Companies”.
Come on people. Are seriously not going to start to peaceable protest? At least our parents had Woodstock regardless if it was good or bad for the world.
Watching the news is like watching a horror movie. If you don’t believe in the Bible then perhaps a good read would be a book called Revelation. If you are find yourself watching prime time television that only seems to be about blood, gore, death, and destruction these days then I am certain you will love this book.
Then again, do you really care? The real kicker is why did we spend all that money on the cold war when the American people really seem to love communism. However, recent polls suggest there may be real change in November.
If you do care speak out, create a blog, create a peaceful movement, come join me at DemocracyMarch.org, run for office and most importantly don’t take everything at face value. Truly investigate the claims that are being force down our throats whether they are coming out of the mouths of the blue or the red.
When are you going to wake up American and say enough is enough. If not now, then when?
