You didn’t get mad!

After The 8 Years Of The Bush/Cheney Disaster, Now You Get Mad?

You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed  a President.

You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate  Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq.

You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.  You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to  us.

You didn’t get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal  war.

You didn’t get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the  previous 42 Presidents combined.

You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars in  cash just disappeared in  Iraq.

You didn’t get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn’t get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that  shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.

You didn’t get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn’t get mad when we didn’t catch Bin Laden.

You didn’t get mad when Bush rang up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and  current account deficits.

You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn’t get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could spend,  the filthy rich, over a trillion dollars in tax breaks.

You didn’t get mad with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.

You didn’t get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because  they  had no health insurance.

You didn’t get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush  Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments,  retirement, and home values.

You finally got mad when a black man was elected President and decided that  people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick.

Yes,  illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing  your tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since  1929 are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick.

Oh, Hell  No!!

  1. Right-wingers only get mad about things they’re told to get mad about, even if those things aren’t based on reality. They’re mad that “Obama is anti-business,” even though it’s Republican policies that are hurting job creation. Businesses are scared to death that Republican obstructionism is going to send our economy into another depression. And right-wingers don’t seem to have a problem that most of our manufacturing jobs have gone to communist China. You would think that with all the anti-socialism rhetoric out there, they’d be angry about that, but they’re not told to be, so they’re not.

    • One young man told me that “socialism” is definitely a description of what our country is since we have social programs like Social Security, Social Welfare, etc. I agree that most people do little research about most subjects they object to. People need to wake up and smell their own coffee.
