"True politeness must be born of sincerity. It must be the response of the heart otherwise it makes no lasting impressions, for no amount of "posture" and "surface polish" can be substituted for honesty and truthfulness."

You were you,
and I was I;
we were two
before our time.

I was yours
before I knew,
and you have always
been mine too.

Brushed Under the Rug…

<Stepping up onto my SOAPBOX> Entitlement (see definition at end of this post)
Entitlement reform… you mean welfare? Food stamps? Education? Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security? Congress, you all have the ODASITY to call WHAT WE HAVE PAID INTO ALL OUR WORKING LIVES… ENTITLEMENTS when OUR TAXES PAY YOUR OUTRAGIOUS ENTITLEMENTS… So when anyone says “entitlements” You mean Congress’ ENTITLEMENTS right? RIGHT? Because for NOT DOING YOUR JOB, like COMPLETING a budget since… what? since like 1986 or so? Vote YOURSELVES A RAISE way above your average constituents’ income and that doesn’t include your retirement income for life, healthcare for life… I WANT THIS JOB! It also includes other entitlements like… TRAVEL EXPENSES…an office, office staff…. AND… I only ‘sort-of’ have to do my job, as long as I get something done that votes me back in again… When was the last time you thought your congress or senate representatives have done the job they get paid for? So I know exactly what to do about “fixing and reforming” entitlements to help with our domestic budget, start with CONGRESS who make enough money to pay for and into their own healthcare and their own retirement just like everyone else who makes less than CONGRESS… How much will that save us on our domestic budget every year… um… forever? Want this healthcare extravaganza to work right? Make congress get their healthcare through the government and through the healthcare bill they created and voted on… for us… as OUR representatives… speaking FOR US in the HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES… and then wastes how many millions of dollars? Of OUR tax dollars without any… without ANY responsibility… to pay us back!! And those REPRESENTATIVES responsible for the LOSS OF TAXPAYER MONEY… have NO RESPONSIBILITY… none… so I ask you… WHAT THE F^CK? SERIOUSLY… What is that? Just what they wasted… would get how many people out of debt if what the government shutdown cost us silly tax paying working our ass off pawns, was divided evenly by all the tax payers of 2012… Aren’t we owed something in return? Who keeps their jobs and gets paid for holding the very people they work for hostage and make them lose money… WITHOUT RESPONSIBILITY… ugh! Call me the silly girl that I am… but I just don’t understand how this gets pushed under the rug…

Why Ryan? Because Romney doesn&#8217;t have a plan and Ryan has definitive ones&#8230; and a history of it&#8230; notice how Romney just says silly things like whatever Obama is doing&#8230; I&#8217;ll do the opposite&#8230; omg! He doesn&#8217;t take any real stands on anything&#8230; what has he actually said that matters so far? He has no clue, he is too far removed from what it&#8217;s like to live without basic necessities&#8230; without an income&#8230;without healthcare&#8230; and imagine getting no birthcontrol, getting pregnant and adding another mouth to feed when you can&#8217;t feed the children you already have&#8230; or you discover you&#8217;re too ill &#8230; forget about ending the pregnancy&#8230; The Repug party says&#8230; no abortions for any reasons &#8230; Romney says he believes in a few exceptions&#8230; yet the party he represents and backs him believes and passed their declaratory statements on this subject in direct opposition to what Romney says&#8230;Romney/Ryan &#8230; scary&#8230;. we will take another three decades backwards&#8230; Suddenly Obama doesn&#8217;t look so bad&#8230;

He doesn’t take any real stands on anything… what has he actually said that matters so far? He has no clue, he is too far removed from what it’s like to live without basic necessities… without an income…without healthcare… and imagine getting no birthcontrol, getting pregnant and adding another mouth to feed when you can’t feed the children you already have… or you discover you’re too ill … forget about ending the pregnancy… The Repug party says… no abortions for any reasons … Romney says he believes in a few exceptions… yet the party he represents and backs him believes and passed their declaratory statements on this subject in direct opposition to what Romney says…
Romney/Ryan … scary…. we will take another three decades backwards…
Suddenly Obama doesn’t look so bad…

wearethe99percent:


I am a 29 year old male who is raising my one year old daughter by myself. I do not have my other children. I had to give up rights to my son, who is now 4 and I have never met, because I could not afford to pay the child support. I have tried to reach out to get the help I need from every angle possible and to every agency I know of that could help. I have not been helped by any of them. The below is what I have even sent to online help sites to obtain help. I still have not found any help from any of them.
“I really need help. I am a single father with full custody of my nine month old baby girl. I am struggling right now, financially; among other things. I will tell you about what is going on. 


I am fighting for disability due to physical and mental problems. I do receive food stamps of $367 per month, cash assistance of $316 (which will be going to $100 within the next six months) and WIC checks for Savannah. This isn’t enough to obtain housing. I cannot find any housing with the county (Lackawanna County; Scranton, Pennsylvania) or within surrounding counties. I have tried all the agencies that help with such matters. Child Support does not come from the mother as she is on SSI, according to domestics. I have no other income.


I have lived at three addresses since Savannah was born. All three have bedbugs and fleas. I am tired of it. If something happens here, I have no where else to go. I have been forced to lie and say that I am residing somewhere else just to keep my welfare benefits because the other people I lived with and live with now have a high income and it would be counted.

I don’t know what to do. (Barred from jobs due to criminal record, lack of transportation, fainting risks, lack of experience, lack of education; and no other way to pay for our needs. I get so depressed because I am failing as a father. It is my duty to provide for her and yet I can’t. I have gotten so bad that I actually want to die, 90% of the time.

I don’t know what kind of help you can provide, but any help is appreciated.”
Some things have changed since those emails. I now reside in my fourth residence since my daughter was born. I am soon to be going through court again for my 7 year old daughter who I have not had any rights to see this far. I have been denied again for disability and now have given up. I have no education, no way to obtain education, no car, no way to get one, can’t drive anyway, no skills for labor, limitations on my labor abilities, no bank accounts, no inheritances, no trust funds, nothing to speak of except that I am on welfare. I am tired of getting screwed by the government. I am the 99% and I do OCCUPY!
