I keep hearing shit talk about Roosevelt from assholes
lets talk about life previous to the great depression, the roaring twenties
the roaring twenties had several causes
world war 1 killed 50 thousand young men
and The Spanish Influenza killed millions of young people
if you look anywhere in history, after a huge plague there is an economic boom
And the invention of the tractor created a boom in food production which created a rise in population
but it wasn't that roaring
black people still lived in shit
the whites in the south were living in shit tenant farming
rural people all over didn't have electricity
there were no real interstates
capitalism is completely unregulated
there was no minimum wage
there was no social security
when you got too old to work, the world told you to die
So the depression hits after the dust bowl
Roosevelt takes over a failed system of shit
puts some of the people back to work
gives social security
gives a minimum wage
gives us an infrastructure
and what people do not recognize is that similar situations took place all over the world and they either led to fascism or violent revolution, both making for countries without democracy and without habeas corpus
So today I'm watching Anderson Cooper, who is supposed to be a nice person. Anderson Cooper is talking about the first project of the stimulus package which is an unsafe bridge in Missouri. The bridge is in horrible shape and falling apart, and it will create or maintain 240 jobs to build a new bridge. The citizens of that area are happy.
What does Anderson Cooper do and our media. They scour the area for one Republican economist from a local university to spout shit about FDR being a fuckhead.
Maybe I'm bias, i mean, because my grandpa worked for the Triple Cs and sent money back to his family instead of starving to death, and bernice's grandfather worked for the Triple Cs instead of starving to death, I've enjoyed highways and electricity, instead dirt roads and candles, millions of people get energy and water from the hoover dam, fuck that, that's stupid,
the fact the media even bothers to speak to republicans anymore disgusts me
speak to a green person, an independent, a socialist, anybody but a fucking republican.
i feel like vomiting
my bowels tighten in pain suffocating my shit turning it into diarrhea.
