I posted this on Facebook too..Think someone sent this in an email to Rosie O'Donnell and she sent it on..now I'm doing the same..If you want to take it and pass it along..Goddess bless you.
You Didn't Get Mad We had eight years of Bush and Cheney, 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.
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 600 billion(and counting) on said illegal war.
You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.
You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.
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 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 a 900 billion tax break to the rich.
You didn't get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.
You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping other Americans...oh hell no.

Thank you for posting this, it was what I was trying to say on my blog. I will put this on my facebook and send it out in my email. I was at work one day and one of the guys (I wasn't crazy about him) was saying how Bush was going to go down as one of our BEST presidents. Even though I was out numbered and shorter than everyone, I ripped him a new one and turned around and walked away. I need to slip into the plant and post this on their bulletin board.

I've been mad ever since I reached voting age.

Mom said...

I like it - I was way mad about all of those things.

billy pilgrim said...

Anne Johnson said...

Yeah. How dare that damn government allow my daughter to be on my health plan until she's 26? I was going to send her into the Marines for her health care!

Intense Guy said...

LOL @ Mr. Pilgrim...

Seems about all you can get (or be) is mad at 'em. They've been so awful for so long...

Funny. I've noticed that a lot lately. "Friends" are very vocal about the new administration when they never said shit before. Of course they build rockets so it's just job insecurity, not right or wrong. Now you see why I have no friends. Fuckers.
