  •  Ugh, aides to Republicans. (8+ / 0-)

    In my experience, extremely privileged young adults who have never had to deal with any sort of hard reality.

    I very much enjoyed telling one of them, one day, to pass along my thanks to his boss for fucking ordinary people over. He got upset and hung up on me. I know, it's petty and unproductive and blah blah blah, but getting under his skin made me feel good.

    •  when I went (7+ / 0-)

      to Peter Roskam's office (Fascist, IL-6), his aides tried to throw us out because one of the developmentally disabled men I brought with to talk about health care refused to shake his (Roskam's) hand.  They screamed, "This is a United States congressman!  Show some respect!" - it was like being in feudal Europe and dealing with a Lord of the manor.  Roskam supported the aides, by the way.

    •  I so wanted to blow up (2+ / 0-)

      but I wanted to get my points across more.  I did acknowledge that I was aware that Democrats and Republicans alike were in on the pain administration.  My main point was the unfairness of the system requiring us to get benefits from working while work is allowed to exempt from providing benefits with various loopholes.  What exactly do they want us to do I asked?  Of course no answer and not even a few platitudes.  I also wrote scathing letters to both stating in closing that as they sit on their cushy clouds of security we, the working Americans, are being screwed and we know it so prepare for the next election with a suit of armor because we are coming after them.  I only hope those words are not hollow wishes.
