The Rise and Fall of the US Dollar of A

New Political Tactics Procrastination and Delay
The world is saved, President Obama celebrates, politicians around the world utter a sigh of relief, and citizens are totally disgusted by the appalling lack of directly tackling the real problem.

The republicans and democrats are thinking, great now we can all get back to our everyday routine of doing nothing to solve the now non-existent 17 trillion dollars scam that was created and abused by presidents of the USA over the years.

Meanwhile, government services continue to decline while creating ridiculous logic in areas of immigration, health, and social services, China proposes a global currency, the EU is headless and clueless in the decision process, and the world simply spins out of control.

What ridiculous logic?  How about:
An American married to a foreigner attains a green card for his spouse along with a social security number and the spouse is not allowed to have a bank account in the USA while at the same time some foreigner with a work visa is.

Try calling an American embassy and find yourself on hold for two (2) hours or being disconnected even after going through the automated push buttons.  It is almost impossible to speak to someone there and even if you want to simply go to the embassy, you are told to make an appointment, go figure!

A veteran friend of mine from WWII, yes that’s World War #2, who is 90 years of age has stopped receiving his military retirement pay.  After numerous attempts to contact via email and telephone to offices in Washington, he is still using his savings to survive.  Even though he survived freezing cold, bad food, and his life while fighting the Nazis, the sad part is that bureaucracy will probably kill him.

An American married to a foreigner decides to travel to the USA.  The spouse has a green card and has a minor accident to which they go to a public hospital.  At the hospital they are told that the spouse cannot be treated without paying.  The American in his tells the hospital staff that if his spouse came into the USA illegally that she would not have been declined.  The hospital staff agrees and advises them to go to a private hospital.

Sadly, the list goes on and on but no one in the government appears to be listening.

The US government continues to send money to countries around the world in the name of “improving relationships” while cutting money from one real source of intellect – education while criticizing Americans as being uncreative, unimaginative, and without lazy.

If other countries aren’t feeling warm and cozy by having America as a business partner then they never will.

I remember the song by Steppenwolf, Monster that was popular during the 70’s and especially during the Vietnam War as it described the government.

Here are some verses from the lyrics:

The spirit was freedom and justice
And it's keepers seem friendly and kind
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind

'Cause the people got fat and grew lazy
Now their vote is like a meaningless joke
You know they talk about law, about order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told

America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster


The monster to me currently being greed, corruption, bad education, pacification, and allowing criminal of the financial sector to buy justice.

Monster Lyrics by Steppenwolf
