Human Experience #11,107: Separation of Corporation and State
I went to another Occupy Orlando assembly last night. I will be attending Occupy Orlando this Saturday October 15th downtown at the Orlando Chamber of Commerce.
I am very upset by the state of affairs in this country. I feel That there are many issues that should be tackled but are not Because policy makers are making money off their situation. I get paid to do my job, but I do not get special kick backs From my company’s competitors to sabotage day to day operations.
Politicians are put in office
BY THE PEOPLE
TO SERVE THE PEOPLE
They are not put in office
BY THE PEOPLE
TO SERVE CORPORATIONS
They should be looking out for our best interest because the day they are OUT OF OFFICE they might be affected by their shitty policies. Stop selling us out for money.
Isn’t gay marriage legal – It is a no brainer! Equal rights for
Everyone! Gay votes tally up the same as straight votes.
The Mormons got together and raised enough money to
Back track proposition 8 in California. THIS IS NOT
IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE PEOPLE, BUT
THE BEST INTEREST OF MORMONS.
Isn’t Marijuana legal – Come on! Every time, every single
Fucking time someone brings up legalization of Marijuana
It is quickly dismissed. Why are cigarettes legal yet the
Government puts millions of dollars towards campaigns
Telling us what assholes we are for smoking in public
And poisoning ourselves as well as anyone near us.
Law Enforcement seizes millions of pounds of marijuana
A year. It is obvious that there is a demand for it, like
cigarettes legalize and tax it. THIS IS NOT IN THE BEST
INTEREST OF THE PEOPLE, BUT IN THE BEST
INTEREST OF BIG TOBACCO.
Isn’t Public Education Extended to College- Lets get everyone
Educated! Instead of bullshitting about the Presidents’ birth
Certificate or wondering if he is a undercover Muslim – how
About we talk about the real problem: schools that are closing.
Children who have to be bussed in to other towns to go and
Attend over crowded schools because there is not enough
Fucking funding for it!!! It is so shameful that we are the
Most “powerful” nation but we can’t even keep schools open.
Not only can we not keep schools open, we haven’t figured
Out how to extend public education to a college level.
Knowledge is power it is in this nation’s best interest to fund
Education. School do not merely teach reading, writing,
And arithmetic. They lay out lessons that follow each of
Us through life. We ask so much from our school system
And provide inadequate support then wonder why other
Countries are succeeding where we are failing. We need
To plant the seeds of our future on fertile soil! There is
No reason why college has to be so expensive, why it is
Impossible to pay rent, insurance, car, food, utilities, and
Have enough for tuition without borrowing money from
Banks who charge exorbitant rates – they know you have
To pay it back it cannot be discharged through bankruptcy.
The banks will have you by the balls. It gets so expensive
To pursue higher education that students have to go to
Foreign countries to get a degree. THIS IS NOT IN THE
BEST INTEREST OF THE PEOPLE, BUT THE BEST
INTEREST OF THE BANKS!
Isn’t there alternative fuel – I know there are electric cars,
Hybrid and E85 powered vehicles. There has to be a way
For vehicles to work without electricity, or fuel!!! We
Should be harnessing the power of the sun that beats down
On me every day. When cars were invented I understand
We didn’t have the means, to think past combustible fuels.
That was in 1906 – it is 2011 I should have a car that flies
Or powered by the Sun or water or something not on oil.
THIS IS NOT IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE PEOPLE,
BUT THE BEST INTEREST OF OIL COMPANIES!
Isn’t the government cracking down on outsourcing – When
I called T-Mobile the call went to India. The answer is simple
They can pay them a fraction of what they would have to
Pay an American employer. These jobs usually give a better
Salary than McD’s. Instead the politicians blame the Hispanics
For taking jobs – what jobs?! You want to go pick oranges
Be my guest! Wait until you see the inadequate support given
To those workers whose hands are ravaged by pesticides and
They have no ground to retaliate. THIS IS NOT IN THE BEST
INTEREST OF THE PEOPLE, BUT THE BEST INTEREST
I don’t know if Occupy Anywhere will get any of this settled
But it is making bleeps on many radars and to me it is worth it.
Pics from last night:
The City of Orlando conveniently turned the fountains on - He just spoke louder!
