Kyra's Choice

After the shows yesterday, I asked Kyra which of her interviews she might want to put up on the blog. "George," she immediately said. "We've gotta put up George."

So here it is... Kyra's Choice for Thursday:

    Man that is bad, I hope George gets the help he needs. These people that do these things to vulnerable people like George deserve all they get.

    Thanks to President Obama for the credit card reform, however, the credit card company's still have several months to continue to "stick it to you" before the reform goes into effect. It does not help those that are already in the "hole" from all the fee's and penalties, AND "forcred" higher rate hike's. Who can I pass my higher cost on to just as the credit card and bank companies are doing?

    I don't really buy it....the outpouring I mean. When someone reacts over-the-top to something out of the dark chapters of the human condition, I kind of hark back to Freud and question their sincerity...overcompensating maybe? They have that sixth sense for the politically correct dead ringer and they ride it down 'hero' street. Keep it in check and it'll be more believable. I worked with the mentally handicapped in a state home and I saw firsthand the abuse but there's no solution because it's a revolving door of poverty class uneducated know, the street smart, smoking, hardened, powerball lotto playing, casino truant dive bar patrons. You can't win because then you get typecast as the goody two shoes whistleblower and guess who loses their job due to 'not fitting in'!?! Yep, and then you have to explain to your family...well, ya see, there were these other workers who were sticking the patients outside in the cold snow because they wanted to have a break from listening to them. Yeah, and then your family would say 'just do your job and don't fight with other people! now we have no money!'. See, it all makes for a nice human interest story on CNN but in reality, America sucks. And now because of these poor evangelical whackjobs who voted convocation over vocation in the last 8 years, I have to dip back down into the lower class labor pool and work with the types eluded to when the job applications ask questions like, have you ever stolen money from your employer?...have ever committed a felony? you bring firearms into work? you do drugs? Great.

    George is a symbol of exploitation through violence. Our systems are rife with the use or tolerance of violence to control and diminish populations.
