October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Isn’t that freaking ironic?


This country is not going to improve until we elect politicians who support increasing revenue. That we as a nation continue to protect the interests of the wealthiest 2% of Americans at the expense of everyone else is not only misguided, but borderline sociopathic.

I also think the relatively TINY amount spent for domestic violence compared to millions (billions?) “loaned” to politically connected people’s companies, which then goes belly up and the money goes “poof” [email protected] and I suspect someone walks away with their pockets full, whistling a merry tune….while there can’t be found money to prosecute a person who is guilty of domestic violence.

Shame! SHAME !!!!! on anyone who would go along with this corruption. Oops, I forgot, psychopaths and narcissistic politicians don’t have any SHAME! My bad!



Throw in many religious leaders who disingenuously focus on trivial “moral” issues such as gay rights and abortion and completely ignore the destruction of families at the hands of corporate white collar criminals.
