(this is in reference regarding a story about how Americans aren't saving, that was posted in another thread)

what of the people who had a home, lost their jobs, did the best they could to pay off what they still could on a house that was slowly killing them?

They were trying to do the right thing, yet the system screwed them over by laying them off and sending their jobs over seas.

How does one save then?

Yeah, it's all about our "crazy lifestyles" as Americans.

We hear and see the morons that bought to much house or spend like there is no tomorrow, but for the mass majority of Americans out there, we hold the line, we scrimp, save and live within our means, YET we still get screwed.

The moronic poster jerk for financial irresponcibility is the easy target as the guy who spent to much, but what of wall street? what of the ceo's? what of the corporations that think nothing of their employees and only of the bottom line. What of them?

It so reminds me of what stalin once said, "if a person kills someone; it's murder. If a thousand people are killed; it's a statistic".

So a few citizens that screwed up are paraded out and metaphorically stoned as the 2 minute hate du jour. However, we get ceo's that skate away with golden parachutes, corporations that get slaps on the wrist for stealing our tax money, YET AGIAN, we all do is just shake our head in wonder as to why nothing is done.

Fuck this close-minded stupidity. I will side with the moronic over spender any day than with those life sucking faceless pricks on wallstreet any goddamn day of the week.

Who the fuck are we fighting for, as Democrats, anyway????

Damn it to hell.
