Somebody is Making Too Much Money

The majority of us really don’t think about the real things that affect our lives until it’s on our doorstep. All of a sudden it’s the Teachers, Firefighters, Police, and anybody that just happen to have a job that their paycheck are coming from taxpayer dollars are demonized.

Did the Firefighters who rushed to Ground Zero on 9/11 in the face of collapsing buildings were paid too much?

Does the Police Officers make too much when he or she answer a 911 call rushing to save a rape victim, a murder victim, or any victim who just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time?

Does the Teacher make too much not knowing whether or not little Johnny got a loaded gun in his backpack while he or she’s trying to get him to pay attention to the math?

Does the Postal worker make too much when we as a society are stuck on the phrase, “the mail must get delivered, rain, sleet, or snow?”

Does the NURSES and DOCTORS at veteran hospitals make too much when they do any and everything to make sure our wounded men and women returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan are given everything they deserve; while 97% of Americans sat at home watching the wars on their surround sound TV?

Do the people who protect the Congress members and the Senate get paid too much making sure some crazed person can’t just walk into their office and exercise their right to bear arms anytime they want to? That will be a good question to ask Congresswoman Gifford when she returns.

I could go on and on with this, when did it become KOOL for someone to put their life on the line for minimal wages for someone whose making MILLIONS and BILLIONS just because they’re contributing to your re-election campaign?

I definitely understand the fact that the knowledgeable people are vastly out-numbered by the ignorant. A guy like ‘Joe the Plumber’ proves that to all knowledgeable people every time he’s given a platform to speak. But as a people, we can make a difference by letting the few know that we will not stand idly by and allow our freedom to be trashed by the elite few.

The real problem is that the people who’re being demonized by the real elite, seems to be winning with the outright ignorant people like ‘Joe the Plumber’. It really hurts me to even have to mention a guy like joe the plumber; but hey, we can’t be oblivious to the stupid ones who can inflict damage while being pawns to the elite.
