Grumblings from both ends

Filed under: Odds 'n ends — totallygroovygirlfriday @ 12:35 pm

gg has noticed an increase in the grumblings from the left and the right. The left, most recently, with the Swartz suicide (see gg’s Martin Luther King Day post) and Manning still in jail. And the right, represented here with one of gg’s favorite farming sites. The gun issue, of course, igniting the most recent debate. And paying higher taxes brings out the grumblings of everyone in between.

These grumblings have one thing in common: unhappiness with government getting into people’s business, regardless of whether that “business” falls on the liberal or conservative side of the line.

One day there is going to be an issue that unites these two ends of the spectrum. gg really thought the taxpayer bailout of a corrupt banking and financial system would do it, but not-so-much.

  1. I thought that too but isnt it amazing the power of lame stream media being able to manipulate the masses to support the bailout of the super rich and dump the loses on them and future generations? Simply amazing. Edward Bernay would be proud…
