Absolutely no one denies the reality of their greivances. No one whatsoever. But that should never even have to be the issue."We are mostly business owners and employees that are losing our income and denied our right to provide for our families. We have come together to demand action from their elected officials".
All the foolish blustering aside, I understand that basic point of view. We can't inflect catastrophic financial damage on people and expect them to simply accept it. No one should be the least bit surprised by this. These folks have been sacrificed as a necessary casualty for the greater good. They don't like it, and that's not only understandable but perfectly acceptable.
Why aren't there available resources to support such people when the health and safety of all people--not just "me" or "you"--actually require them to make this sacrifice?
Why can't we support them when this is abolutely, unmistakably required? Why does a large segment of our population swear to their deaths taht the needs of 100 or so billionaires and corporate entities, at any time and every time, are always vastly more important than the health, safety, and success of the actual humans in the country? Why is that where we are right now? Why did this happen? Is it not obvious that this is a fucking horrible way to run things, when shit really hits the fan?
That's the real issue. We can absolutely do that. We have that ability. People like to think we are the best nation anywhere, but those same people don't seem interested in taking responsibility, or actually being, what that actually means in the world today. We have the resources. It is something we can do. There is absolutely no wy around that.
Why don't we make that happen? What is stopping us from being an actual first world nation?
