Original message I'm getting very afraid. Afraid for our Country.

I wasn't afraid after 911, or the Patriot Act, or the what seems like thousands of other fear tactics the Gov't & media have been pushing for years, but I'm afraid now.

Cities turning their street lights off, destroying cacadam roads and throwing down stones because they can't afford to maintain the paved roads, teachers layed off and the rest reduced to 4 days a week because the municipality can't afford to pay them, police annoucing that they will not respond to any cromes less than murder because they've been cut to such a short staff, brush & weeds not being cut along super highways because there sno money....

Every hour I hear of some other drastic cutback and I hear absolutely NO GOOD NEWS!

I'll be OK unless the Fed Gov't competely falls apart because we're both on SS and although we don't like high on the hog, we're doing fine, but what are the people doing who have not only lost their job but lost their unemployment? How do they eat?

It's not only here in the US either. My son works for an airline and he took his kids on vacation to Italy to visit his brother who lives there. It didn't cost him much becasue he flew free and stayed with my brother. On their way home they were stranded overnight at the airport in Rome because the flight they were hoping to get was full with paying passangers. They met a man there who's house had been taken by the gov't because he couldn't pay the mtg so he was living at the airport in Rome. My son asked him how long he was going to stay there & he said well, until they kick me out I guess. I have no idea how he's getting $$ to eat either.

What's tomorrow, or next month, or the next 6 months going to bring?

I don't mean to be a fear monger, but this whole mess has m very afraid.

Maybe you should ask Fearless Leader??? But I doubt he really cares. Look at how POTUS obviously doesn't care about the average job with his wife running around with her widdle crew all over Spain. A crafty Pol would have more brains than that but then again, we're talking about Obama.

Macadam, but around here we call them tarvy (even if there's no tar involved).

I'm pretty sure the dunce meant "macadam", which makes the statement even more retarded in its redundancy.
