I've already had my peter finch moment.
Now In fact i've moved on being damn angry, at this point i'm just despondent.
On Obama Sucks and Here Is Why
I'm sick and tired of:
-An increasing amount of American children receiving a sub standard education
-Over criminalization and incarnation of the poor
-The impoverishment of the American worker
-The billionaire class growing ever more powerful while they try to strip the safety net from the majority of American citizens
-Republican lite Democrats that don't give a damn about those that live in poverty, the working poor. They don't give a damn about the ever dwindling middle class, please don't pretend that they do.
I would say that Obama was an utter and dismal failure except for one thing- the eradication of pre existing conditions- aside from that he has failed us all.
Did the President campaign (the first time) on raising the minimum wage? Did the minimum wage rise under Bush? The .01% are worth trillions of dollars combined. A few thousand people have increased their collective net-worth by trillions during Obama's term.
Were taxes raised substantially on the billionaire class, to offset those new trillions?
Was the social safety net cut drastically to trim the deficit during sequestration?
I've heard all the excuses, Obama can't get the R's to pass anything. Well didn't they get Republican support to renew the patriot act. Did the Republicans just support fast track? Do you think maybe, he could have strengthened the ACA or increased the minimum wage in tandem with fast track?
When the majority of Republicans vote to give emperor Obama exactly what he wants with fast track do you think maybe we are going to get the short end of the stick in these negotiations?
How much power will corporations gain under the TPP? The ability to incarcerate even more Americans for copyright, IPP and whistle blowing infractions?
Obama isn't just a neutral force against the average worker, he is an adversary.
When The Obama administration wrote a brief that came out against workers vs. amazon at the supreme court that felt like a betrayal. Obama was in favor of forcing workers to queue on security lines at work and against compensation for that lost time!
The supreme court ruled unanimously against the american worker vs corporations, Obama did not have to express his opinion on the matter, but i am glad that he did as it showed his true allegiances.
Apologies for the long and messy post, i'm not mad, just incredibly frustrated.
