Trust me, I work for the Government

Is it hate or are they heroes?



Union, Democrat, Gay, Atheist, or Muslim it doesn’t matter because the start of the hate is always the same. My ideas are the right ones and the only way this world will ever work out is if everyone learns to believe the same as me. If everyone thought and acted and worshipped and looked like me, all of my problems would be solved.

The truth and the hope is that people are too different, too diverse to fit into one way of doing or being.

The bad is that’s where the trouble starts.

That’s when those who destroy the Middle Class in order to make the top one percent even richer blame you for the real pain citizens are suffering. You set a bad example with wages and benefits and they want to make you disappear.

The few who have kept the life that all Americans felt entitled to just a few years ago are now the ones who don’t fit.

Whether Republicans or just a disgusted electorate seeing their jobs leaving, losing hope for the future, and the rich getting richer, they are frustrated by the lack of progress and in what they see as your greed and stupidity for not seeing the wonderfulness of the big ideas like destroying Unions, blaming Muslims for high oil prices or being a Democrat.

Remember they don’t see themselves as wrong or desperate and they see the only logical approach to be cutting off the offending organ. They can’t openly uses guns, knives or the rack so they resort to political pressure and public lies to destroy the ones they see as the cause of their pain.

The press and the talk shows tell their audience that Union employees get benefits, get better wages but like any propaganda or bigotry what they are really trying to say is that we are different.

Once a group has been labeled different you can be labeled greedy, stupid, and thugs, it becomes us against them. Them is a fair target, even an honorable target. Immigrants, Unions, and religions have all been made into non-people, parasites draining the life blood of the public and it’s always open season on them.’

The Government and big corporations didn’t outsource your jobs, it was them. We didn’t demand concessions and wage cuts while paying CEOs millions, it was them. We didn’t take all of the benefit from tax cuts, it was them.

The truly frightening part is that most of the people that want to fire you or ruin your life don’t think of themselves as cruel. Your kids going hungry when you lose your job, or your years of service at a thankless job don’t count. They don’t see the need to keep the promises made when you were hired. In their own minds the trolls of the right wing press, the fee payers that collect Union pay and benefits while trying to destroy Unions see themselves as the Lone Ranger riding on a white horse saving the poor townspeople and making the world a better place, while Tonto gets minimum wage and no benefits.

Even as they attack the very institutions that built America into a great country, as the Fox news hounds demand that they be fired you are no longer a neighbor or a Mainer. You have lost your identity and become THEM, a Union employee. At the same time they are take the food out of your child’s mouth and destroy the dream of an American middle class in their daydreams they are legends in their own minds.

It is ironic that no matter whether the screaming is against Unions, Gay rights, some religion, or demanding that we bind the witch to the stake, or condemning those who do not believe in an endless war, all the words sound the same
