Today it seems that now, more than ever, people are willing to follow words more than action. The actions of the democratic congress and Obama are more revealing than words he speaks. My hardcore democratic relatives, believe every word out of Obama's mouth. They think that the evil rich have gotten away with not paying taxes, that George Bush is to blame for everything. They don't understand that the evil rich are mostly small business and the people that they work for. The old saying goes, try to job from a poor person and see how that works out for you.
They never even realize that the last two years of Bush, that the democrats controlled congress. They have no idea that the housing bust was part and parcel to the democrats push to empower previously unqualified home buyers to qualify for a loan. Freddie and Fanny was run by democrat cronies and regulations fought off by Barney Frank and Cris Dodd.
I tried to talk to them about it, and I might as well been talking to my pet poodle. They either didn't believe me, or made every excuse in the world why it was George Bush to blame. I even had one tell me that he believed that the 9-11 attack was done just to take us to war. I gave up at that point. Some people will only believe what they want to, no matter what facts stand in their way.
I guess that just the way it is. I wrote a short poem to express that. If you want to read it, you can find it at the following link.
