I keep wondering what happens to ALL the Lotto, and Casino Money that was supposed to help our schools. It seems we the 'poor' are constantly being asked to pay for 'This or That Tax', most recently tobacco tax, while the politicians make higher and higher salaries. Their mouths constantly spew forth how much of a shortfall we have. We are even double-taxed on our Income taxes. I live in Washington and pay what you all do. There is no 'regulation' in Oregon of these matters.
Do we just keep listening to what the Media wants us to believe?
I really feel 'they', who reside in the top of the pyramid of power, are purposely 'squeezing' alll of us out ! Nothing has changed, in our budgets and expenses, yet we are being made to blame, and pick up the cost. There has to be an end to this madness. Everything I saved on my utilities and more, from the previous winter, got eaten completely up by the recent increases. to the point where even my reserve, saved prior to winter-- bottomed out. Do the companies care what happens to us?
It isnt about us conserving. It is about $$$! We need to question, WHY? Why is How much money we dont have, is always the top of the conversation? I think the Media hypes all of it. Remember there is always an underlying cause or agenda, when it comes to our hard-earned wages. People are poorer. jobless and homeless; yet we are pressured for more-more-more to support the wealthiest! This has to STOP this madness! NONE of these problems were caused by ANYTHING any of us have done or not done.
Better get used to it, because we are going to get dragged to the bottom. As long as people co-operate with this ridiculous chaos, that we call our leaders, it is going to get worse and worse. Wake up people!
