This was a Facebook post by a fellow named Joe Madison, so whatever you do, don't give me any credit for it. I found it on a blog that I like called "The Book of Cletis." I do wish that I'd written it though, and I endorse the concept, and the feeling:
"You Didn't Get Mad"
Since Obama's regime, all of a sudden, folks have gotten mad and want to take America Back...BACK TO WHAT/BACK TO WHERE?
After the 8 Years Of The Bush/Cheney Disaster, Now You Get Mad?
You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.
You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq...
"You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.
You didn't get mad when we spent over a trillion dollars (and counting) on said illegal war.
You didn't get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined.
You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq.
You didn't get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.
You didn't get mad when they didn't catch Bin Laden.
You didn't get mad when Bush rang (unintentional deletion)
You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.
You didn't get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.
You didn't get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could spend, the 1%, over a trillion dollars in tax breaks.
You didn't get mad with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.
You didn't get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance.
You didn't get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values.
You finally got mad when a black man was elected President and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick.
Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929 are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick... Oh, Heck No!"
Back to Khun Fred here . . .
I usually steer clear of politics, I'm depressed enough as it is. This caught my eye though, and I thought that it was worth sharing.
