I inhabit a nation in which those who only make a few million dollars constantly complain about the injustice of living in a world in which their secretaries do not pay sufficient taxes. It must be painful to ONLY make a million, it must be insulting that your secretary only pays ten percent more than you in taxes. After all, she gets paid at least $10 an hour!So, why any surprise at the news from Turkey. An adviser to Prime Minister Recep Erdogan was with his boss in the town of Soma where over 200 miners have died due to lack of safety measures. Yusef Yerka, watched some mine families DARE to protest at these deaths. Didn’t they know that mine accidents were part of the job of being a miner?? Anyway, one of these men was crying out his pain when Yusef finally had enough. He gave this ungrateful man three kicks. And, it was all caught on social media.
Well, here is the bad news. Yusef is now terribly in pain. As a result of this man allowing himself to get kicked, poor Yusef was hurt. He is now in pain, a pain, we might add, that is considerably more severe than anyone would get from a few kicks to his body. Yusef has been diagnosed with issue trauma and has to take sick leave. Oh, Yusef does not see any reason why he should apologize to the man kicked. It was his knee that got damaged!!
I urge Yusef to bring this matter to the attention of Mitt Romney, there is a man who understands the pain suffered by the wealthy!
