Save the Self-Storage Stalls for Senators


We shopped for so much stuff on credit that our homes burst at the brim and another American industry was born and is now bankrupt. Seedy self-storage stalls still litter the landscape to remind us of the decadent decade that almost destroyed our country.

Our problem went from the corporations and banks lending us too much money to buy things we didn't need, to these same corporations and banks buying our elections and bribing our politicians with the bailout we provided.

What if we transformed these self-storage barracks into sanctuaries for senators bird-dogged by special interests? Imagine the transformation when thick satin finish paint covers the walls, and polished wooden floors are sprinkled with wool rugs, a comfortable bed, a porcelain basin filled with lavender water and all the sustenance needed to win an election and govern.

True self-storage could become possible for the people we elect to solve our collective problems. With only the company of soft light and even softer music our leaders could with clear conscience re-connect to their values and the values of their community. These refurbished enclaves would offer soul-storage for the weary who are hunted by day for votes by well-heeled dogs, and who must hunt each night to fill their war chests.

The battle of the campaign is brutal. Greed and extremists are fierce enemies. Our den, though small, will nourish and strengthen. Government of, by and for the People will abide there.

There sure are too many self storage units out there. We have such a pretty planet, and all of this land is being turned into boxes and crates to hold things most people forget about anyway. At least make them attractive like Amazing Spaces, that self storage facility in Houston. People need space to store their things sure, but people need organization and better discipline to separate what they really want to keep, and what they keep just because.

Many customers choose to store at our Motorhome Storage area for many reasons...

I like the approach you took with this topic. It is not every day that you find a subject so to the point and enlightening.
