the murder coming

those who have money, bubbling in the belly of the beast, make it their point to inform the rest of us, that if we haven’t started putting money away for our “retirement,” then we are ****ed--- as if there will ever be a “retirement,” as if there will ever be money to save & we can look at our paychecks every week to see the funds stolen from us to be paid out to “social security”--- yes, we are that lucky, to know that money is taken from us that could be saved as the vultures say, to “help us when we are older,” as if any of us expect to live that long. no, we are waiting for the murder coming, you know, the one when you get sick in america & you don’t have health insurance, so that you cannot get well, pure & simple. whether you believe that approximately tens of thousands of people in america have died in the past few years, due to a lack of healthcare, or whether you believe that 72 americans die each day because this country refuses to provide for its citizens, or whether you believe that it actually comes down to one person dying every twelve minutes the fact remains that “For any doctor... it's completely a no-brainer that people who can't get health care are going to die more from the kinds of things that health care is supposed to prevent”--- so sayeth Dr. Woolhandler. you & i are waiting for the murder coming, living in this empire without the ability to get the services needed, when sickness & death begin to tap dance around us & mr. hope & change is not going to do anything but pour fuel on the fire, by forcing the people of this empire to buy healthcare from the very scum****s that are killing it.
