Someone sent this to me. Since this place is troll town, the reactions should be interesting.
TEA BAGGERS, Republican "Conservatives" and Other Angry People....
It is truly amazing to realize that:
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.
You didn't get mad when a covert CIA agent got outed by Cheney's office.
You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.
You didn't get mad when our government deceived us about "weapons of mass destruction" and spent billions to attack Iraq, a country that posed no threat to us, instead of finishing the job of getting rid of the real terrorists in Afghanistan
You didn't get mad when $500 billion a year was borrowed to pursue that war.
You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.
You didn't get mad when you saw the Abu Grahib photos.
You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.
You didn't get mad when the previous President inherited a budget surplus, then ran up the national debt up to $10.024 trillion.
You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans and the President lied about it.
You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden in Tora Bora.
You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible treatment of combat veterans at Walter Reed.
You didn't get mad when FEMA failed in New Orleans.(Heck of a job Brownie).
You finally got mad when????
When the government decided that people in America deserved the right to health care if they are sick.
When some regulation of irresponsible financial institutions is enacted. When stimulus programs are enacted to help repair our aging infrastructure and create new technologies and jobs.
When we try to salvage something worthwhile from the previously botched war in Afghanistan.
How is it possible that Illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, tax cuts to make the rich richer while running up huge deficits are all ok with you, but helping lower and middle income Americans makes you mad?
Of course. All of the above will be rationalized.
