My Political Mini-Rant for the Day

The thing I hate most about events and changes in American society since I graduated from high school is that they have all pushed me further to the left of the political spectrum. I'm not just referring to the fact that the definitions of left and right in this country have shifted; I'm saying that by the commonly understood historical spectrum in this country, I am actually a borderline socialist now. My shift to the left results from seeing the damaged wrought upon America by the massive redistribution of wealth, the consolidation of the corporate media, the destruction of regulations designed to protect society as a whole, the continued whittling away of worker's rights, and the deterioration of our infrastructure -- all of these things have happened since 1990 and not a single one of them have helped the American people or the middle class.

They have, however, helped the very rich and corporate America, and the greedy fuckers still aren't happy with what they have.
