I have a right to my anger, and I don't want anybody telling me I shouldn't be, that it's not nice to be, and that something's wrong with me because I get angry.
Alan Grayson gave some brilliant suggestions for what the mega wealthy can spend their tax breaks on; Nicholas Kristof wrote an editorial about the US’ new status as a “Hedgefund Republic”; we were made privy of the massive profits made by health insurance company’s this year; while new Congressman Andy Harris wanted to know why he had to wait so long for his government sponsored health care to kick in! All the while 50 million people in the US have no insurance at all, unemployment remains at 9.6%, and the gap between the rich and poor is the greatest it has ever been in this country where the richest 1% possess more net worth than the bottom 90% (see Kristof’s article here).
And then there are the TSA scanners.
Enough said. We deserve a little outrage, bluster, and protest!
With Jupiter’s recent station, and the Sun about to join Mercury and Mars in the sign of Sagittarius, everyone is going to have an opinion... everyone is brimming over, having had it up to here, with apparent injustice, unethical practices and immoral behavior. So joining the hero, Mars in Sagittarius, Mercury, and now the Sun (entering Sagittarius on the 22nd) have come to help him to carry the banner for truth and justice, revealing hypocrisy and exposing lies everywhere.
What we all have to watch out for is getting carried away with ourselves. Things are nerve wracking.. the pace is quick, and words will flow out without caution or thought for the consequences over the next week. Beware. This is a great time to negotiate, to debate, to broadcast... yet you first have to make sure that you are all speaking the same language, and not impulsively saying whatever it is that’s in your head, without carefully thinking it through first.
We can use the ensuing energy to be the Knight in Shining armor fighting for ideals, or Joan of Arc leading us on to glorious victory. We can be the hero flying in to save the day, such as Alan Grayson, or even Ron Paul exasperated with the X-rated x-ray machines. Or we can also be a source of agitation, getting everyone pissed off with our arrogance, audacity and hubris, such as Andy Harris did, when he complained about not getting his health insurance, after running on a platform to repeal Health Care Reform.... or like the Republicans did this week when they voted unanimously not to extend Unemployment Insurance for the unemployed, while pushing to extend the tax cuts for the mega-wealthy!
Is it time to be outraged? You bet it is!
