Stay on course

When did “Big Business”, an employer of a great many people and a driving force to many local and state economies (Wal-Mart, Citi Bank, etc.), become the devilish force behind such events as the current economic crisis while avoiding the fact that they could potentially be the salvation of the unemployed?

What leap of judgment equated “Health Care” with “Unemployment”, and how did such a leap become policy?

Why is it immediately assumed that if a cop gets off on a lighter sentence than the body public is salivating over, it is some conspiracy, thus requiring a response that includes “…people looting stores, smashing car windows, throwing powerful fireworks at police and lighting fires in trash cans”?

How can someone that has lived a bit more than a handful of years not realize that there will indeed be another event that will stir you, another cause that will flashpan and you will identify with it, another shocking occurrence that will hit you in the head with it’s intensity, causing you to want to rise up in rage and anger….

-And that when these events finally wind down in their intensity, when the attention span of the people has been exhausted on that event or cause that you championed, your participation in such a thing will, in the end, be only a foot note in history (if that)?



About Old Iron
I'm just a guy that works overseas alot and likes to play just as hard as I work. Been to a FEW countries, know a shitload of people all over, and generally have a good time wherever I go. -Oh, and I am currently in between girlfriends, and strangely enough and perfectly happy with that status. In the long run hookers are cheaper. Take my word on that.

    in the eye of the liberal, “big business” is the enemy, one can’t have successful big business and co-exist in a socialist state, just ask Jeremiah Wright and his disciple, Mr Obama

    No, they don’t have anything better to do. I watched some of the unedited video. Probably 80 percent (or more) of the people there were just there to see if something interesting happened. A small percentage are professional troublemakers (anarchists, community activists). Probably a slightly larger number are vultures, looking for chances to rob, loot and steal in the chaos.

    This was manufactured outrage, for the benefit of the manufacturers. Next to no one gave a damn about Oscar Grant.
