    the Obama administration is that they are continuing to bully, deny equal protection and due process in line with the Bush administration.  In some cases one upping them.  It sickens me.  And sickens me even more that we have no choice in this election but to support Obama.

    Many people in this threat have talked about the societal acceptance of bullying.  It starts and stops at the top.

      what I find frustrating is that austerity put on us from the top is just another way of bullying the population that has had the whole structure of country dismantled.  It has become the wealthy politicians and corporations bullying the citizens.  Just look at Greece and I don't think we are that far behind.  

      This administration just made a free trade deal with Columbia, this will lead to more jobs leaving the country, and they fail to acknowledge that there is a job problem in our country.  All we get is lip service while the top goes on with making sure they protect their wealth while creating more wealth.  In the meantime it is the hell with everyone else.  At times I want to scream from the rooftops and I feel completely helpless against a system that is designed for only a few to succeed.  It has been documented in history many times over that society has accepted bullying when resources are strained and people are frustrated.  To me, it is a sign of how overly competitive we have become in order to survive and put a roof over our heads and food on the table.

      No one at the top is listening and they sure as hell don't understand what is happening in their own country because they are completely isolated from the struggles of normal life.
