Historically speaking lawyers are paid problem starters that are great at creating tons of documentation while accumulating a crap load of billable hours. More often than not, many of them aren’t usually really very good at creating problems rather than solutions. Bankers on the other hand love taking huge risk while play with other peoples money and have already more than prove to have no problem relegating people lives to nothing more than line items on a spread sheet which was proven after the mortgage crisis of 2007/8. Thanks to their lawyer buddies they seem to have created the perfect tag team they gamed the system in their favor that green lite their efforts to destroy peoples lives while making a crap load of money by doing so as they have more than proven to be untouchable. Never having to worry about being held accountable for their mistakes even when they break the law.
Now, don’t get me wrong, people who traditionally come from these two backgrounds can be quite brilliant and they are clearly not all bad. But, all it takes is a handful of these twisted psychopaths to really mess shit up for us all! Especially when most of them spend their entire careers trying interpreting laws and speculating trends for the favor their uber rich clients who represent such a small percentage of the worlds population, do you really think its a good idea to let these people dictate public policy? Has anyone ever even stop to wonder why the richest get richer in the stock market, while all those other investors seem to take a bath?
Regardless of the great divide these people create what has and always will make our nation great is the vast diversity and multitude of different perspectives derived from the many different backgrounds of the people who make up this great nation. Unfortunately, both the US Congress and Senate clearly do not represent that diversity of our nation which is why we’ve been driving in the wrong direction for the past few decades… A good example of what I mean is an image taken from an article I found on the Washington Post.
And, this is not just new trend!
The sad reality is more that more than half of the US Congress and Senate are lawyers and bankers and lawyers for quite some time which has clearly proven to be a recipe for disaster. Gee… I wonder why both the Congress and Senate have a long-lasting love affair with creating monstrous laws packed with thousands of pages of documentation that seem to always protect big biz and big banks while do nothing to stop the destruction of our global economy. ANYONE SURPRISED HERE! American didn’t start out that way and it certainly will not survive if this trend continues on unchanged.
The sad part is our nation was founded by writers, shop keepers, physicians, philosopher, farmers and tradesmen. Granted many of them did have legal expertise back them but you have to keep in mind, in that day and age people lives did not revolve around one singular specialize profession like they do now. Quit often we were the masters of many different trades. It’s pretty amazing what you can accomplish when you life doesn’t revolve around the limitless distraction of provided by TV and celebrity gossip…lol
Yet, these seemingly wide array of different people from many different backgrounds crafted the foundation for one of the most powerful and liberating nations on the planet. Granted, our nation was founded on the backs of slaves and the genocide of millions of people who live in America first. But sadly, those really were the methods used to create pretty much every country/kingdom for thousands of years prior to the early 1800’s. What is true is that these great men dreamed and looked forward to eventually break the trend of thousands of years of primitive practices. That is why the drafted our constitution the way they did, they knew that things eventually need to change even though their current state of the world was not ready…they had a better vision of what the future held. So they helped lay the foundation to create a world better than the ones they were apart of. That is what made America so great! So suck it all those none believers…lol
Now, tragically we seem to be slipping back to the the world they aspired to help us one day over come…
Ironically, these founding fathers envisioned a nation that opposed leaving it under siege/control of a bunch of lawyers and especially bankers.
With lawyers and bankers at the helm for many decades, America has taken a tragic ideological U-Turn back to same mentality that ruled the early 1700’s which was ironically what inspired us to break away from England’s rule to begin with. Taxation without representation still happens to this day as we have somehow forgotten the importance of keeping a close eye let our leaders. We’ve become a nation the reveres career politicians when the whole point of elections was to make sure that these positions of power were not intended to be as such. They tell use they are here to create prosperity and peace for all, yet their actions promote/support war, genocide, drug trafficking, chemical dependance and have been responsible for the death, destruction and injuries to billions of innocent people around the world. Gee… no wonder everyone fricken hate us! We’ve lost our place as the beacon of hope the world once revered and become a shadow of who were once were.
Of which is tragically ironic seeing as so many people in today America claim that we are more evolved than we ever were. Yet racial, religion and ethnic inequality are at an all time high and our freedoms are disappearing at a rapid rate and on a larger scale than ever before in our history. The best example I could possibly give is the fact that the last time I checked, not to long ago, we were a nation at war with the very idea communism and pretty much made it our mission crushed it. Then, for some reason we magically decided that is was actually a great idea to suddenly support it? Seriously… What the hell just happened? Why did no one raised a stink? Well, because we got lawyer-ed by a bunch of big banks who saw that they could profit from another countries acts of slavery. Wow… Just WOW! How is it that one of the most enduring historical events in our nations history is the fact hat it almost got destroyed by the very notion of slavery, yet no one see’s the irony? Hey, as long as we get a bunch of cheap shit, who care right! The reality is, that was when our nation started to go down the tubes…
Although these problems may seem to big to take on, I will post many possible ideas while trying to get to the route cause of our nations woes. If you want to follow me as I write about many topics in my future blog posts that will help shine the light on the the cause of these problems while looking at some cool ideas on how to eliminate the obstacles that are holding our great nation backs.

And yes, some of them I’ve mentioned in other blog posts but the need to be repeated so you get the point at how important they are. Besides, I can’t come up with all the ideas people and I still need to save a few for my other blog post…lol What the hell would I be able to write about if I just dumped them all on one post…lol
- Don’t elect anymore lawyers/bankers as we must learn to look beyond a resume and the candidates ability to raise funds! Try to elect people with a “REALISTIC” plans, who exhibit the passion and ability to be honest with the voters regardless of whether you agree with them on all the issues.
- Get involve and promote candidates who can show you a plan to accomplish their campaign promises and who do more than just tell you what you want to hear and promote them on social media. Create new ways to discuss why you think a candidate is a good pick rather than just their cleverly crafted talking points.
- Most importantly! Stop re-electing leaders who have voted on issue you are against and accept the reality that voting for a candidate who is of the same political party simply doesn’t work anymore. You really need to snap out of this fantasy world that just because someone says that “they are on your side” as a Democrat or Republican doesn’t make them an ally or enemy. Bad people have relied on this deceitful illusion since the beginning of time in order to trick people into trusting them. DON’T BE THAT GUY/GAL!
