Legendary Pushback

Fighting back is something that is happening every day now. We've seen the banks and Wall Street steal our money, we've seen the mortgage companies do the same with regard to Wall Street, and we've seen lawmakers who are bought by the wealthy and corporations literally passing legislation that squeezes the middle and lower class even more, in order to give more tax breaks to the "job creators."

Of course people are pissed. We've been pissed for a while but now that we've seen Congress in gridlock simply because the Republicans want to see President Obama fail, we realize his jobs act won't ever pass. We also realize that state governments are corrupt and passing legislation almost daily that sticks it up the collective ass of the middle class (no rhyme intended but hey!)--in particular making it hard or impossible for likely democrats to vote at all. Those state houses are influenced by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), which is (surprise surprise) funded by the GOP-friendly Koch Brothers and corporations like State Farm.

So yeah, people are freaking pissed and are getting more and more ornery by the day. That's why there are huge swells of occupation in cities across the country; it's why folks are taking their money out of banks; and it's why folks like me are planning to switch from State Farm to a more progressive (hint hint) insurance company. If we can't get them to change policies, we'll get them where it matters even more--in their motherf--king wallets.

The change is happening, people. Look around, get involved, and together we can take back what is rightfully ours.
