It doesn't fucking work

Posted on Mon, Jan 9, 2012 at 9:49 AM

I'm fucking cranky, this goddamn free market bullshit is clearly not working. When you have CEO's making millions and then asking for fucking bailouts from the taxpayers, something is seriously fucked up here. Insurance companies raping people on premiums because the government makes insurance manditory. Utility "boards" that are solely looking out for the interests of big business and shareholders, and continually putting the shaft to the people. Governments that have lost sight of the reason that they're elected. Isn't the mantra "government by the people, for the people"? It's not happening. Fuck, $40 for a 24 for christ sake! Same beer in Maine, $12.

I'm sure it looks good on Bay Street, but does anyone else see the problem with shipping raw resources south of the border only to have them sold back to us at an exorbant rate? We're shipping raw logs to the states for processing into lumber, while we're shutting down saw mills here. They want to send oil to the US for processing, won't fucking do it here. Selling the whole fucking country to foreign investors, while our own people are satisfied with low wage, no future work. This country needs a huge wake up call, it's fucking pathetic the way we just do nothing while the government fucks us out of our future, energy security, etc. How does the gov't not see this shit? —Fuck
