I have been unemployed since 2007 when I had to leave my job due to addiction. Prior to that I incurred two felonies. Apparently, one has to be rich to get a second chance. Can you figure out what is wrong with that last sentence? It’s no one’s fault but my own.
However, I am trying to get by working for cash (yes, I know that’s not politically correct), most recently securing a job with Uber as an Independent Contractor and qualifying for a car loan. Now I am in receipt of a Summons for Jury Service. I understand that is my obligation as a citizen, but I am not your average citizen.
I live in a garage. I have been classified as homeless by the Department of Public Social Services. For the past ten years I have applied for jobs with no response. I finally secure a job that fits my schedule and has enough flexibility to accommodate my multiple health issues and now the Superior Court of California County of Los Angeles does not recognize my struggle as a legitimate excuse, compelling me to serve.
I work to live. I don’t have the luxury of being paid for my jury time. As things stand now, I will incur penalties because every penny I make goes back out to my job in gas, car washes, toilet expenses, living expenses, etc. My point is that I am trying to improve my situation, yet our government wants to keep me down. I am tempted to ignore the Superior Court because I anticipate losing my car, which will result in me losing my job and you can’t get blood ($1500.00 fine) out of a turnip.
People question my disrespect of our government, which will now include sitting for the national anthem a la Kapernick until there is a flat tax for every single American, rich or poor; non citizens are not eligible for benefits, ALL communication in the USA are conducted in English; and term limits are imposed for congress and the house.
I don’t know what you can do for me and I am highly doubtful that you even care, but I would love to see your response, which will be posted on my blog for all to see.
And then the creative side of me took over and here is the first of the marketing collateral…ha ha ha ha ha!
Note the difference in type. If this concept ever takes off, that first political service announcement on behalf of this political ideology will be a collectors’ item…ha ha ha ha ha!
Purple because it is a combination of red (republicans) and blue (democrats), integrating both parties of average citizenry into larger group that might realize the power they have to change and improve government to cater to the people’s needs.
Flamingo: Flock mentality symbolizing unity and sameness of species; promoting Social Democracy versus Capital Democracy.
Okay…need more inspiration…gonna go watch more Pee-Wee’s Playhouse…ha ha ha ha ha!
I have never been a huge fan of politics or how our government is so biased to the more fortunate. A Social Democracy versus a Capital Democracy always seemed more fair to me in school. Bernie Sanders has reignited my interest in the United States government.
I have always thought that our congressional representatives should be subject to term limits, as well as, the President of the United States, and which should not exceeded presidential term limits. Of my own accord, I began to compare the constant clogging of the legislature due to bipartisanship to a failing human heart in a body that would not survive the same..quick nod to the Anonymous program.
I also have a history of a sense of renewal on Easter Sunday, of all days. Well, there is where my mind went…
While my compassion level is low for the Middle East, I am not a monster and appreciate the need for refugees (any race, any creed) to find a safe place to live and my heart goes out to them.
However, Barack’s stance on this issue really pisses me off! Apparently, he – like the rest of the government has forgotten that the United States was founded on the principle that it be governed by the people, which means to me that YOU work for me, Barack!
I DON’T WANT ANY REFUGEES, especially:
- from a war-torn country, where helpful Americans are viewed as enemies and invaders
- when the United States can’t even help it’s own citizens before sending money, aid, food to other countries
- because refugees get assistance and benefits when they are not even citizens, while we have Americans – like me – that can’t even find a job and are (technically and according to the Department of Public Social Services) homeless
Barack, instead of “demanding” your stance on refugees is correct, you should be “asking” American citizens how they feel about this and then bow to the majority vote.
As for voting, with the technological advances we have made, why isn’t there a mechanism where everyone with a phone can vote? People can opt-in to a mailing list and be advised via text which opinion is being solicited via text and would better represent our country as a whole. DOH! This solution would also eliminate the need for crony senators and representatives, who sit in the house for life! Even the president’s term is limited!
Ultimately, why aren’t those countries taking care of business themselves? Just look at the background of the accompanying images: dirt, rocks, more dirt, more rocks. Let them all kill themselves and then we won’t have to deal with them anymore.
