Had a rough year? Most of us are glad that 2011, a year of unremitting rough times is over. Many of us were and are still unemployed. The rest of us and by us, I mean the bottom 99% are either underemployed or have stagnant salaries that haven't gone up in years or are retired, on a fixed income and praying that the people they elected won't cut their Medicare. Everyone had to deal with the endless speculator driven price increases of life's necessities. I'll bet you thought that this wasn't supposed to happen after you voted for the candidate of “hope and change” in 2008?
They say that the definition of insanity is doing things the same way but expecting different results. In light of that, and with an eye towards starting 2012 out with a clean slate, let's throw out a few stale concepts.
The reason for the Democratic caves to the Republicans is obvious, many of the electeds of BOTH parties answer to the same corporate lobbyists and virtually ignore the average voter. Stay tuned to this website for several petitions that are coming in January that will let them know that we are on to them and put our electeds on notice! Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!
