Shale I found deep within Mattheissen State Park of Illinois, USA . The shale’s cracks and arrangement struck me as a child denied something he/she desired. I saw a figure enraged, having no consideration of its actions or surroundings, venting frustration possibly at his/her own expense.
For me, a greater association is made between that figure’s reckless actions and the GOP members of US congress – members who strive to obstruct Obama at every turn, cut social programs dead, and deregulate anything consumer and worker related. All to make Obama a one-term president – all during crushing unemployment, suffering middle and lower classes, and turbulent global markets. These individuals refuse to work with Obama on any measure to benefit the struggling and unemployed, saying they have no time for such legislature, when during that same time they reaffirm in God we trust as the US motto, mint commemorative baseball coins, push the E PARASITE Act, and turn around to cry victim to corporate news.
Childish stomping is all I see when GOP congress members pursue their ideology over their country. There’s no innocence in their obstructing the President for such petty reasons – they do so with complete disregard for their constituents, with possibly lasting consequences for us all.
