Looming Budget talks suddenly dominated by Climate Change, jobs, pension security for the elderly, and health care

 

Today the president and all the political parties agreed that the looming budget crisis on August 2nd will now focus on assuring the American public that our government will follow the guideless in its “Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States” . This will help us immediately adapt to Climate Change and provide millions of jobs through renewable energy efforts. Then, both the US Senate and the House of Representatives took time out to review Senator Sanders talks on the budget crisis and realized how many American would be hurt if they continued to use the American people as a scapegoat for the wars we have waged, the tax breaks for the rich we keep giving, and the ideologies that don’t include the physics of Climate Change. This change of heart was difficult but all political sides decided to put the health of our environment and our public before political bickering. And, in cooperation with our political leaders our mainstream media followed suit by promising to report news, stop using their income to acquire more news outlets, and pay investigative reporters for real news.

Of course this story above is complete nonsense.

In the real world, it is not the best of all possible worlds. It is the worst, where those who don’t start wars pay for them, where those who save for retirement have to give them away to those who cause the crisis, where millions who need medical care have to give that up, and where the planet warms up and we are completely incapable of addressing it.

It all goes on while mainstream media reports on everything else—because they care about profits and not informing the American public of what they need to know.

How did such a smart species as our come to create such a mean, doomed existence that only favors the few?
