Why Are Working Class Folk Not In The Street?

You know with the news coming out of different places around this country,about local and state governments laying off government workers,cutting their benefits,cutting their pay checks and pretty much screwing them left and right.
What is it about working stiffs that we can't see the collapse of our life styles and in turn our families?
Have we working class folks been so consumed with stuff and image that we can't see the forest for the trees?

Yeah, maybe it's time that we had our very own revolution?

Whenver any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and institute new government.

I live in the state capital of Ohio. It was on this past Thursday and round 2 is on the way.

Who has really taken time to organize the working class or poor people? Where is the leadership that we need at this time?

Who can afford to take a day off to protest? Especially now that gas is higher than Giraffe Pussy?

Because in the west, people are used to being reserved, not rocking the boat and have an attitiude of oh, that won't affect me, and why should I care about that, until it does.

So many things that are not right or proper that people should complain about and they choose to do nothing.

That's why.
