Original message Republicans hand 5,000,000 unemployed their death sentences. Want more TSA scandals instead?
This is what happens when you get snookered into the demagogue's game of bait and switch. We are obfuscating something that will happen to over 5,000,000 people, (starvation, etc) which I think should be the major story.
Yes it is intrusive that some stranger may get inappropriate with one's genital region under the auspice of national security.
Perhaps it's an old joke gone awry...
Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to get frisked?
In any event we need to focus on the soon to be dead at the hands of Republican cruelty. Is this family values? (vs. jewels?) Is this even American to let your neighbors starve to death?
The demagogues are probably going to "sell" the ten billion dollars for the unemployed at the cost of over 700,000,000,000 for the wealthy tax bail out. It is time to gird your loins for their outrageous bullshit to fly. How dare they dangle the prospect of the death of millions so that those who live in times of luxury during times of great hardship for the many can have even more luxury. The bottom line is they don't create jobs anymore. They have had a ten year tax bailout and two bogus wars which should have hidden some of the true unemployment under Bush, yet the jobs are not forthcoming. They don't create jobs or wealth. They simply siphon it to foreign shores and pay miserable wages and export POS products that flood our markets with junk that only lasts a few months, if lucky. I say let them do without their hoarding for at least a decade straight.
