Who's Helped and Who's Harmed By Debt Deal?
Neither clarifies nor inspires
This piece was kinda what you write when you’ve nothing new to write about. Apart from its grammar and style, my main objection is that this sort of “say it again, Sam” writing is uninspiring. One reads it, looks at the ceiling and says, “Jeez, maybe there’s some another account somewhere that’ll be clear and have meat on its bones.“
And perhaps that’s one of the biggest problems we have. How to arouse our common ire enough to stop taking this greedy redistribution of our nation’s wealth on our collective chin? How to inspire ourselves to rise up to determine our future and standard of living? Our goal: the largest percentage of the nation’s wealth for the majority of its citizens.
We presently elect others to do what we ourselves have neither the will nor the time to bother with. We opt to be led… so what’s the surprise that we’re led by Thomas Nast politicians whose pockets glisten with corporate and Wall Street gold? It seems we prefer to be blind to that which is too painful to admit.
Instead of seeking solutions that provide the most amount of benefit for the largest percentage of the population, we continue to allow a select few a very disproportionate share of our nation’s wealth and influence.
