'Treated like a child'

I'm getting Sick & Tired...

It just Never stops-  the Lies.. the Desperate need by this government and the "presstitutes" as accurate Trends Forecastor Gerald Celente brilliantly and accurately labels the mainstream media, to push 'Recovery'

The markets continue to rise for their own greedy, nefarious purposes.  Prices of gas, food and every other essential go up, up as wages stay flatlined.  Jobs are not being created in any sizable numbers and those that are available are the type of entry-level garbage one should not even need to posses a high school diploma to obtain.

And yet we keep getting the same nonstop, endless propaganda.

The other day I keyworded 'furlough' in Google news search and gave just a small sampling of the dozens of news articles showing how across the US, states, cities and municipalities are forcing furloughs upon workers as a means of trying to get their fiscal houses in order.

Today I keyworded the term 'layoffs'- the following is just a Very small sampling of the recent news articles on this topic...

* ALL of which are simply from today's news, 4/28/11 --

"The loss of state funding will force Cleveland to lay off 400 workers, close fire stations, and scale back police patrols... (Mayor Frank Jackson) did not specify what positions would be eliminated, but said the layoffs amount to about 7% of the city's 5,400-person workforce." (Business Insider)

"Some Houston (TX) municipal workers today will be handed the first pink slips in what is expected to be wide-scale layoffs as City Hall grapples with a shortfall in the current budget and a projected $80 million deficit for Fiscal 2012" (Houston Chronicle)

And On and On and On...

100 layoffs here.. 200 there.. it adds up

When you watch the news and listen to your elected leaders and scum like Fed Chair Ben Bernanke tell you that things are getting better and we're on the right track, you should be Furious...

Not annoyed.. not upset.. FURIOUS --

Because you're being treated patronized & lied to--  like a child..  Daily.

Children play with toys and escape into television, video games and other pop culture diversions when things are rough or scary.. Or when they feel helpless.

Adults do not.
