quote He cares a lot

Here is social commentary courtesy of James “Big Jim” Martin from FNM (a.k.a. Faith No More). The title is a reference to a song titled We Care a Lot.

“Big-spending politicians and their government employee unions count on taxpayers having short memories to trick them into accepting more tax burden e.g. look at the 1.25% sales tax increase which political elites pushed in 1991 to deal with a budget gap. A half-cent was supposed to be temporary but when it came time to expire, the Legislature, it placed it on the ballot promoting it as necessary for public safety.”

“Jerry Brown squeezes the middle class even more. This is not about fixing roads, we already paid for that many times. Sacramento has lost touch with the voting public.”

“Voters, by then used to paying the higher tax, swallowed the hook and we continue to pay the entire 1.25% increase that was initiated almost twenty-five years ago. The most important thing for voters to remember is if they agree to any temporary tax, it may as well be considered as permanent. Among those is the federal telephone tax established to pay for the Spanish American War, which remained in place for 108 years after the war ended.”

“There is no Perpetual Motion Machine. Therefore, there is no machine that is a Zero Emissions Vehicle.”

“Obamacare never helped improve access, it only makes sure insurance companies and hospitals get paid.

Don’t forget about the insurance companies and the attorneys. They have done much to shape the current climate of mind. It is now good business practice to avoid responsibility.”

“The only way that anything works is because someone believes.”

“The U.S. of A was the glue holding the world together. Because of our currently impotent foreign policies, the U.S. is unceremoniously pushed aside by imperialist Chinese and Russian interests. A line has been drawn, our weakling administration has been told not to cross it.”

“Awful things happen when people go haywire. In this country, they say mass shootings and it could have been prevented. What are they saying about France? Those people have not a chance to defend themselves. They said the police couldn’t find their guns when the comic book killers slaughtered them. This terrorist business has been indulged long enough. Everyone is paying attention. Will you blame a video or a comic book if there is a problem here? Blame your representatives and employees who are ridiculing you everyday.”

“Anyone remember how we were enslaved by plastic? It was a substitute for paper products. It would save trees. We have created a monster, because we have been sold the idea that we can delegate responsibility. That is the lie they are selling you. That is the lie you traded your soul for.”

“The creators of this country had the foresight to guarantee the populace would have the power to eclipse the current administration in the event they fail to act appropriately on the North American continent.”

“Google and snoops are wonderful things, but you have to wonder. Since all your knowledge comes from them, how much propaganda is passing as fact? An entire generation accepts the spin that’s been spun over and over. We all know that Russia, China and every other country are masters of the Internet. They have America as a captive audience. the asset you have is people who lived before all this. Put your phone down. Find someone born before 1965 and talk to them longer than a minute. This Is your last hope. Don’t wait, these people are all beginning to suffer from Alzheimer’s.”

“This country fought for independence at the penalty of death. They risked it all because they didn’t want a big government dictating how they would live and do business. This administration has taught people like you to hate people like that. He’s telling all the unwashed they never had a chance and the risk takers and innovators didn’t do it anyway, someone else did. Then there is time to denigrate a candidate, the negative and divisive rhetoric is central to the message that the current POTUS has for the people, separating himself from the rest of us. He did what he was supposed to do. I can tell you I’ll vote a rock before Hillary.”

“The 2016 U.S. Presidential elections are currently distilled down to a boisterous business man who is not a professional politician, an old socialist in a shabby suit, and a woman in poor health with a blatant disregard for the truth, and with a vested interest in the continued deception of you.”

“Social media plays a part in psychopathy. Every user has a virtual support group ready to justify every self centered revelation, no matter how trivial.”

“Hillary didn’t shatter anything. The country was ready to vote in condoleeza rice way back when, but she didn’t want the job. Hillary’s ruthless capacity to use power in destructive ways may be beyond anything we’ve seen in the Obama White House. Unlike Obama, Hillary won’t let ideology get in the way of her goals. Clinton isn’t a simple politician. She’s a powerful political robot with little if any character beyond the value of deciding what is politically expedient.”

“In California, no amount of gun control will ever be enough.”

“We have several decades now, in the United States, that point to a clear trend: violent crime is much lower than it was decades ago, and there are a lot more armed citizens walking the streets today than ever before. Despite the anti-gun lobby screaming warnings of blood running in the streets, we have seen the exact opposite.”

“Hillary Clinton has been running for President for almost three decades. Now that she’s running again, there is a media frenzy to protect her from the countless scandals which define her career. I’m not convinced she is “evil”, She is as greedy as a suckling pig. She is outside her strengths here; a variety talk show would maximize her talent.”

“The U.S.A. system of organization is based on thousands of years of collective experience. The unsatisfactory results we are churning through are due primarily to career politicians. Fortunately, the people who have been in charge of CA for the last 30 years are so old they are about ready to be forced to give it up. I wonder what people are thinking when they vote for the same unsatisfactory representation over and over again. I wonder what the big picture is for legislation that creates more crime yet does very little to reduce it.”

Donald Trump’s position on 2nd amendment policy would quickly make this country the safest sovereign nation in the known universe. More people die in transportation accidents.”

One can’t help but think that maybe he was thinking about Cliff Burton (who died because of a bus driver who was drinking too much alcohol).
