I am not my brother’s keeper
Is the hymn of the capitalist
The system only works
If no one gives a damn
About anyone but themselves
God forbid
If we try and get health care
To those who can’t afford it
If we give a man a fish
We feed him for a day
If we teach him how to fish
Oh screw it
He has to teach himself
Insider trading is only illegal
If you are not a congressman
It’s time again

For the same old tricks
Tell everyone how much you hate abortions
But you are also against birth control
And tell them that “they” want their guns

This will be enough to distract them
From the unemployment rate
From the soup kitchens and tent cities
Everyone cries the haves need more
So the crumbs can trickle down to the poor


Every time election time comes around I am amazed how we keep putting in the same old politicians who have been screwing us all the time back into office. We let them distract us with things that don’t really matter but somehow tug on our emotions. And the really sad thing is we will do it again. It seems like we never learn. I plan on putting a version of this in the local newspaper in the editorials. Wish me luck lol. I hope you don’t mind my rants.

Thanks for everything

Randy

I don't know what put the burr under your saddle but its about time. Amen to all of this brother. There are going to be a lot of surprised so called Christians who are going to meet their maker and be told, just before they are sent to Hell, "Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did not do for me." ~ Matthew 25-40

Well we tried not picking any of them, but that just means the few get to choose who gets in there anyway. ;)

Good luck!
Although I am not sure that majority of American people are able to understand that they are brain-washed and manipulated by politicians (who simply represent the guys who run America and the whole world in reality). Of course, similar situation is everywhere. Neither capitalism nor socialism is bad by itself.
