Original message You think its painful now? You ain't seen nuthin' yet.
Wait until they start with the cuts. Wait until more jobs are lost. Wait until schools start to crumble. Wait until cops get laid off. Wait until we cut back on air traffic controllers and lock operations on the country's waterways.
Wait until bridges fall into increasing disrepair. Wait until harbors stop being dredged. Wait until the wait to speak to someone at the local social security office is measured in weeks. Wait until the USDA stops funding the farmers markets around the country and more small farms become just so much more agribiz acreage.
Wait until we can't afford meter maids to enforce illegal parking in your neighborhoods. Wait until the hunting license office is closed. Wait until your favorite trout stream is lost to overfishing. Wait until your school cuts both G&T and SpEd.
Wait until people die in the streets because hospitals can't take them and start to lock their doors. Wait until it becomes more or less like garbage collection when they remove the dead frozen bodies from unheated houses in northern cities, even as the extremes of winter go crazy due to climate change.
Wait until despair is so common that gangs roam just outside the high security gated communities where "they" live. Wait until mobs set upon anyone who admits to supporting this shit.
But not impossible.
Too crazy? Hey, it's the DUmp.
