I just don't know what to say....There is just so much going on right now that fills me with so much rage, it leaves me practically speechless.
Am I the only one? I worry so much about all of the power that these big companies have. The level of greed just astounds me. Why aren't these stories the first thing we hear on the news in the morning? Aren't these the stories we should care about? We are ALL going to be effected (if we haven't been already) even if we aren't "invisible" illegal aliens. It has already happened for my white, midwest, Christian, conservative, middle-class parents: Two weeks ago, my father got a letter in the mail that informed him that his health insurance would be discontinued as of January 1st. My father retired about 12 years ago from Inland Steel and his retirement package/contract included health insurance. With the recent purchase of Inland by another company, and with the blessings of our legal system, the new owners apparently do not have to honor those obligations. All retirees from Inland Steel no longer will have health insurance as of January 1st. MY PARENTS ARE 68 YEARS OLD AND MY MOTHER HAS ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE!!!!!!!! Everyone can be a victim now. It doesn't matter if you were born in this country or not, if you have worked your whole life and paid taxes and done everything right. I know this might appear off-topic to some and I know it is a rant. But I just feel like I can't take anymore of this "corporation-as-god" bullshit!
What is happening in this nation is an outrage! When is the revolution????!!!!!!!!!!!
