Journal Entry 4: Stimulus Checks
Feb. 4, 2021 My House, USA 74
Again, I am surprised that I am not writing anything about English skills. You see, I am preparing my next book, Set-Up to Journal, boldly. decisively, with integrity for publication.
I need to do what I preach in that book: write what’s on my mind as if I am having a conversation with myself, for myself and written by myself.
Finally, I realize that we, the American working class, are being played. I think psychological warfare is being done with us as the enemy. This on-again, off-again game of when the stimulus checks are going to be approved is crazy making.
I have no idea why we who keep this country, the USA, going, who have always kept this country going, should be so hated.
The actions of the Congress feel like hatred to me.
I have long suspected that the Democrats and the Republicans got together behind closed doors and decided stimulus checks would not be sent. I can hear the outcome of this meeting: “Republicans, you block it first; we Democrats will do so second. Then we will take turns blocking.”
Take a look. Isn’t this what appears to be happening?
Last Fall, I became disgusted enough with the Congress that refused to keep the promise it made early summer 2020 about sending a second stimulus check that I am now a supporter of the Democratic Socialists.
Yes. I take seriously the Oath of Office I made years ago that said I will protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic . Yes, I am a supporter of representative democracy which is the definition of a republic which is what the USA really is.
However, I am over an economic system that does not serve all the people, that somehow allows certain groups to destroy the environment and the people.
And yes. Let’s admit it. Many of us suspect that these groups were the financial supporters of the Insurrection that occurred Jan. 6, 2021 in the US Capitol.
Government System vs Economic System
It’s very difficult to do, but it is possible to realize that a government system is not an economic system. This is difficult because these systems are so intertwined.
The problem with intertwining them is that the government system is used to protect and grow an economic system that is anything but equitable and democractic.
Even a brief examination of recent decades will show that this is so.
Strong Working Class
The truth is working class people should be so strong that stimulus checks aren’t needed.
However, change for working class people won’t happen until working class people change.
Yes. I know. This isn’t fair. The system should change, but this is now things come about: the people change and then the system changes.
Working class people have to figure out what to change so that it isn’t targets for psychological warfare and a Congress that is clearly in the pockets of capitalists..
Think About This.
I suspect that many our minds have been hijacked by politicians concerning stimulus checks, hijacked elections, the Chinese did it, and other concerns.
Brandy X. Lee says that the way to reclaim our minds is to pursue great mental health and to avoid anything or anyone who destroys that health.
So. Something else we have to understand and do: we have to know what great mental health is and then achieve it.
I’m willing to do this. Are you?
Be relaxed. Have fun. Learn lots.
