The will to excess

One of the many things wrong with this country is when you can allow greedy fat fuckers to pay poor Mexican immigrants $6 per hour to perform hard back-breaking manual labor building houses in Franklin, TN that these same corporate fat fucks turn around and sell for $800,000 to White-washed America. People who have grown up with silver spoons in their mouths, and whose kids will, and are growing up with silver spoons in their mouths. White people whose well stocked pantries have more square footage than some people's bedrooms. There is something completely wrong with the fact that these white people have only been fortunate enough to have been born in to the right family.

America is increasingly being filled with the same clone drone identical shops, stores, layouts for strip malls. The exact same cardboard cut out neighborhoods. The same fake roundabouts. The same gigantic houses with the same air conditioners that suck up so much of the city's electricity. The same GMC Yukon's and the same Ford Expedition's parked in the same exact driveways. America is a nation of giants. Gigantic people, gigantic vehicles, gigantic houses. Houses that are sufficient enough for 12 people to dwell in, when in fact there are only 4 people living there. The same rich, whitewashed family of 4. Enough food in these houses to feed an entire village in Africa. Enough food in the trash bins of these houses to feed some villages in Africa. Just one of these gigantic SUV's waste the equivalent amount of fuel to power 4 generators for 8 hours. And the saddest part of it is, this scene is being copied all over the country.

At the end of the day, the Mexicans go home to their apartments. Their small rented houses. They don't get new roads. They don't even have cars. They get to ride in the back of a pickup truck with shovels, hammers, nails, cement. The fat, white corporate fuckers don't even go outside in the 100 degree heat. America has become a place for people to be excessive. There is so much waste in this country it fucking makes me sick. And I am not just ranting about people who are rich. I am ranting about people who waste. Even if you are rich, there is no need for anyone to waste so much space and energy, regardless of whether or not you can afford to pay for it. Thats where the Pro SUV crowd get it wrong every time. It doesn't matter if you are able to pay for it, it matters if you need it or not. Why wastesomeone else's gas?
