Why do we always point the finger downward at those "beneath us" when trouble strikes, instead of those above us? Why do we look for a way to blame the guys who mow our lawns when our buildings are struck down? Why do we think it is welfare cheats who cause our financial difficulties, and not those who steal money by the bankful? Why blame the union workers on the assembly line for making $60,000 a year plus benefits while we try to fix our car-manufacturer woes, and not the decisions made by those who fly private jets around the country while leading those companies to ruin?
Too many people I know have a knee-jerk, instinctive reaction to blame those they see on street corners for the troubles we face, and ignore the "masters of the universe" in their glass-encrusted Park Avenue towers, who steal whole entire industries, countries and life-savings. If I get one more email blaming the guys who assemble the Buicks and Chryslers for their "extravagant" salary and benefits packages, and not a SINGLE FREAKIN' email about those who led them into disaster, I'm going to crush the author of that email underneath a ton of Ford F150's!
