Mr President,

Close your eyes and turn a circle-- walk to a map of America--place your finger down-- open them-- no matter where your finger is pointing on that map we are hurting in ways you will never have to know.


Walk in front of that camera and explain to me why some asshole that ran a bank into the ground got a 18 million dollar bonus from my tax dollars. explain it slow. Apparently I'm an idiot. I've been working hard trying not to screw up. I didn't get a bonus. I got a punch to the groin watching CNN as they announced that banks got bailouts and we get a stimulus? Maybe I will get a chance to put weather stripping on houses. Things are looking up already.

Please tell me in a way that will move my walk thru a day why I should care anymore.

frustrated - an American?
