I am a former boy scout, altar boy, baptized and confirmed atheist.
I make around $35,000 a year.
I am a committed social worker and divorced, college graduate.
I work out every day, but really like Popeye’s chicken so sometimes, one step forward, two steps back.
I rent. I have no debt. I own a car. I don’t want a car but I need it for work, oh and I’m kind of a workaholic.
I am a Taoist, and an Anarchist. I dislike the police. I really do, but because of my job I work with the police every day so go figure…ah, life…funny.
I own almost no furniture, but I have a lot of books, and I read them…
Republicans and Democrats…I am hard pressed to think of a politician from either party you could put in front of my car where I wouldn’t speed up…
I would only agree that British Petroleum, TransOcean, Anadarko, Nalco and Halliburton, or any other corporation should be entitled to corporate personhood if we could put them on trial and sentence their person to the death penalty.
My life? Well, it’s pretty good…can’t complain, actually.
I got plenty of money, don’t want for much, am productive, artistic, meditative, and on a really good day, have enough disgust with people and society to melt a piece of glass at one hundred yards…with one eye.
It’s a gift.
Oh, but why am I so angry?
Well, some people, so I understand, want to have children, houses, health care, credit cards, family, labor day picnics, pay for weddings, funerals, even cancer treatment.
Oh, and you know what else?
These people? These entitled people not only want kids, they actually want to have time…yeah, actual time with those actual kids.
I dunno. I don’t get it either.
Oh, and check this out…these people with their kids and their houses and their family get-togethers?
Yeah, they also don’t want to be buried in debt. They don’t want to have to choose between electric bills and tetanus shots, groceries and physical exams, rent and a decent night’s sleep.
These neo-hippies think it would be a good idea to actually have the time to raise their families and I’m sorry, as a member of the the 53%, who feel to demand changes in the way our institutions operate, to demand the ultra-rich make a little less money, maybe pay their share in taxes in hope for a more equitable society, well, me and Eric Erickson, we recognize that for what it is…
These bastards actually want the time to make their marriages work, time with their wives or husbands…and not just time over their bills, at the plasma donation center or out picking up aluminum cans, but times on vacation, maybe an hour in the park, go to a movie, go to church, play a board game…Life, Monopoly, Sorry, Clue…anything.
And that demand for time and equality is nothing more than lazy Socialism.
Look, it’s not that I don’t treasure the family, the house, the two cars, the whatever…it’s just that hell, I am a social worker. I have two college degrees, I have no debt or health problems, and very little chance for unforseen expenses. I have no desire to live outside my means, no desire for kids or furniture, time to myself or groceries for more than one person. I have no desire to work more than 47 hours a week, car insurance beyond what’s legally required, a house of my own or new clothes, dental care and fresh food, or gas…nope.
I don’t need any of those uppity trappings.
And since I don’t…
Why in the hell do you think you should?
Look…the American Dream is a subjective moment of subconscious paralysis, and the quicker you realize this, the happier you will be…
Financial fraud isn’t a crime, it’s simply being creative. As a modern day American, I recognize my patriotic duty as a simple willingness to play host to every financial parasite and politician.
So to the banks, to those who would deregulate, to their political enablers I lie prone and smile.
Have your way with me. I recognize I have no right to complain.
I may be of the 99%, but I am more inclined to be the 53%.
So, I’m yours.
God Bless America.

I suppose it should come as no surprise that Republicans aren’t the only entity Obama and his administration simply rolls over for.
Economist after economist state the people won’t believe in economic recovery until the people who created the recession are brought to justice. And, economist after economist say the banks and Wall Street will not change their ways until people responsible begin to see the walls of jail cells…so, in keeping with these times of paying attentions to studies and experts to seek honest solutions to structural problems, the administration appears poised to let the evildoers of the mortgage fraud scandal off with a fine.
But it’s a really big fine…really big…so there.
And of course, I’m sure…the banks will neither admit to, nor deny wrongdoing…
“State and federal prosecutors are pressing to complete a proposed settlement with the nation’s five largest home loan companies over alleged mortgage abuses, even though they’ve only initiated a limited investigation that hasn’t examined the full extent of the alleged wrongdoing, according to interviews with more than two dozen officials and others familiar with the state and federal probes.
The deal with the mortgage companies would broadly absolve the firms of wrongdoing in exchange for penalties reaching $30 billion and assurances that the firms will adhere to better practices going forward, these sources told The Huffington Post. Negotiators met in Washington last week to hash out the settlement.”
Unless the law is applied equally, the rule of law is dead.
