People Are Pissed

Think about all the corporations who did stock buy backs in the last few years to boost their stock prices which made their stock holders richer. For example, American Airlines spent $12 billion on stock buy backs since 2014. Now, American, and other airlines, claim they need a government bailout to survive. Think about the recent tax cuts instituted by the current administration which mainly benefited big business and the rich. There is talk of the government sending $1,000 checks to tax payers. A $1,000 check is not enough to help most people. Tax breaks need to be given to middle and low-income wage earners and raised on corporations and the ultra-wealthy. People are pissed.

I’ve written before about protesting with Act-Up in the 1980s. Silence = Death was used to focus attention on the AIDS crisis. The same slogan could be used today. Make your voice known or the gun laws will never change. The kids will not be silenced. The kids have motivated people to protest. The kids will be voting. Change is coming. Are you marching?
