The politicians of both US political parties pay no attention to anyone but the richest 0.1% of the population who fund their campaigns. The behaviour of government including:
- Absurdly high military spending and endless pointless wars.
- longer hours and lower wages.
- collapse of manufacturing.
- Health care that costs three times what people in other countries pay.
- Spying on everyone.
- No taxes for the rich. Heavy taxes for everyone else.
- Bailouts for corporations, but no help for people in hurricanes, floods etc.
- Heavy pollution.
- Nothing done about climate change.
are exactly the way these wealthy people want it. They are the greediest, most selfish, uncaring, short-sighted bastards on the planet. They are the last people who should be running things.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
