The Unbalanced Equation

We've got an economic problem that isn't going away. We have an interesting dilemma and you politicians want to get dramatic and have theatre. See, here's the real deal. We the people have not felt the so-called "economic recovery." Jobs are still elusive. Houses are still losing value and owners. Groceries and gasoline continue to go up. And now you're telling us, the government is as broke as the citizens. But all your guys said it was getting better! Okay, so now that you Congressmen realize the government is as broke as your constituents, what are you going to do about it? Now, here's the kicker to the deal. You Congressmen are still raking in your salaries and benefits. The residents of the White House are still enjoying their wealth and elite standing and big business has been reporting profits. Now, since you government folks assured us the bail out has been repaid, then you've squandered that too? I don't understand how the big business corporations continue to do so well, while we are facing yet another melt down. I realize the government is a non profit organization, well, more like a parasite, I guess, but the big corporate guys need to remember, if nobody can afford to buy anything, their profits will begin to fall. And whether any of you politicians want to claim this or not, everyone in office is ultimately facing re-election . . . some sooner than others. Mr. Congressman, your main priority should not be making sure President Obama is a one-termer. Your main priority should be "we the people." Senators, do your job and quit looking for the next big corporate lobbyist to take you out to lunch or on vacation. You work for us, not them. Mr. President, you've done a lousy job and keeping your promises. I'm not surprised, but I'm telling you, you've got no idea what real people deal with on a day to day basis. You didn't grow up black in America in the 60's. Even though your mom was from Kansas, you didn't grow up in the Midwest. Even though you are bi-racial, you didn't experience the unrest of civil rights. I could care less where you were born, you didn't grown up in America, well, except for the time in Hawaii, which is hardly mainstream Americana; and once you landed here, you've had it pretty cushy! Community organizer is the longest "job" you've held without using one office as a stepping stone for another. So, Mr. President, I'm not sure where you obtained your basic mathematical knowledge, but I'm telling you, things just aren't adding up to any sort of balanced budget. You spend money like it isn't yours for a very good reason, it isn't yours. It's time to pay the fiddler, and you've been the only one with all the amenities. Let's get this figured out and then seriously, stop spending money we don't have!
I've thought of ancient Egypt since 2009 and Mr. President, I compared our last administration to the Roman Empire, frequently referring to President GW Bush as Emperor. Well, President Obama, I'm no happier with a Pharaoh than I was with an Emperor and you have brought this nation to a very serious similarity. Scripture tells us that ancient Egypt drown in the Red Sea and current headlines tell me, this modern Egypt is drowning in Red INK! Without a doubt, we are definitely in over our heads.
And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them. Torah of Holy Scripture
