The Taking Of America 1 2 3

THE GIFT OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY IS FOR PEOPLE NOT CORPORATIONS. 

We have all heard a story that begins like this: “When they came for the Jews, I stood silent, When they came for the Gypsy’s, I said nothing, Now their coming for me; who will stand up for me?”

In very few words this historical reminder of Germany’s greatest failure, reminds us of a similar experience and one of the reasons our founding fathers formed America. Our nation was to be a cohesive nation made strong, not weak, by our differences! We would respect the minorities and treat them as equals. We chose to do this for selfish reasons as well as idealistic ones. One of these selfish being our own protection, as the German story reminds us. Of course we, in our great experiment with democracy, have learned of many more reasons to be diverse.

In the poem, “I hear America Singing,” by Walt Whitman, we discover some of the magic that professional diversity affords us. Each industrious worker is seen doing his job. As Americans we should remember the different nations that joined us each bringing their unique skill. This is the key to our longevity and what has made us greater than any other nation on Earth!

Since I was a little kid, I heard stories of the Mohawks who helped build skyscrapers. In 1886, a Canadian company, building a bridge over the St. Lawrence river discovered the Mohawk’s fearless nature, when they hired them to help build the bridge. The Mohawks climbed steel like it was second nature. When a span collapsed killing 30 of their tribesmen, they came in greater numbers seeing it as a challenge not a failure.

About half of the 19th century Italian immigrants were laborers, compared to 1/3 of the Irish and Germans. Contracted out by professional labor brokers known as “Padrones” they dug tunnels, built bridges, laid tracks and helped build skyscrapers. In Chicago over 90% of the steel workers were Italians.

Each nation brought its skills and the blessings of its unique gene pool and culture. The Jews became lawyers, doctors and business owners. The Irish made our cities safe as, policemen, firemen and other city workers. The list goes on and on…

But back to the story of “When they came for the Jews…” President Eisenhower warned us to beware of the “Military Industrial Complex.” He was warning us of the dangerous political influence that corporate America had discovered was within its grasp. He was warning us that we needed to stay true to our principles by keeping the values of our founding fathers, our Judeo-Christian values.

Now nearly a quarter of a century back, corporate America was noting that it could not balance its books, when it kept its contractual obligations to its employees. For example, GM had promised to be the healthcare “god” to its workers and this expenditure was now causing them to pass along too much of this financial burden to car buyers. Many corporations were guilty of this as well, as in promising retirement plans they could not afford later. Our Government was one of the very worst of those in promising both to its employees and then passing along this unearned expense to taxpayers.

In the Clinton era, an unholy alliance was forming. Corporate money for elections, if you take the burden off the corporate books and put it on the taxpayers! Hillary could now smell election victory as the first female president; all she needed was healthcare reform.

Government should be about doing the right thing for the people but, it has become about getting re-elected and serving whatever master has the most money. This it turns out, is the corporate alliance that Ike warned us about. As a result, the medical profession, then made of loosely knit organizations of individual entrepreneurs became their target. The real issues of health care reform and efficiency were never tackled because it dealt with death and dying. Death and dying means dealing with religious values as well as philosophical ones, which are hard to face and too easy to skirt. A huge majority of healthcare expenses comes from what we call “heroic” efforts to keep the sick, dying, very old alive. This effort often ends in their suffering a degrading death at the hands of too many technicians and doctors. Witness to this is in the form of the ever growing number of Living Wills, Do Not Resuscitate Agreements and Health Care Proxys.

The doctors of America were the ideal target for corporate savings; they were small business owners and had no unions to defend them.. Over the next quarter century doctors were then bled into bankruptcy. As a result, individual doctors, practicing privately, are now a rarity. Doctor’s incomes have dropped so significantly, thanks to corporate run managed care, that the majority of doctors are part time mom’s or foreigners from impoverished nations such as India (not to say the Indians are not excellent doctors).

In every song we need a refrain that repeats, so here it comes again. “When they came for the Jews…” Are you beginning to see that pattern of history?

The corporations next discovered that they could make more money if they hired foreigners from third world nations and yet still claimed to be American companies. They claimed to be American companies to keep all the benefits of your paying for their defense with your life should they be threatened. Of course your life would not matter as they fired you and hired the workers overseas. Oh yes, they would bribe you with the short sighted benefit of low cost Chinese products,  until your bank account ran out. Soon you and your neighbors lost their jobs and were forced into low paying service jobs at Home Depot or Walmart to sell the foreign products that were putting you out of work.

More recently the government has decided that the taxpayers should pay for corporate failures by being obligated to pay for corporate financial losses and fraud.

Lets try the refrain again with a little update, “When they came for the Doctors, I stood silent, When they came for the blue collar workers, I said nothing, Now they are coming for me; who will stand up for me?”

When you laugh at the disorganized rag tag protestors of “Wall Street.” Remember you are part of America and their concerns are in many ways yours. If you are an aging Hippy or a proud Viet Nam era vet note that you are not dead yet. America is not dead yet. America gains its power from diversity not homogeneity. Before they take America, take it back! Overcome the illusions of disagreement and remember that we are all in this together and for Each Other. Corporations and Governments are soul-less institutions that have taken over the rights of God’s children.  Trump promised to bring business back to America to employ Americans and he promised to keep the influence of government for the people, by the people and of the people (not corporate bribes to congressmen).  Let’s see that Trump keeps his promises and not let the media divide Americans.

I believe our founding fathers would organize against the corporatocracy that has taken over America, what about you?  Hold Trump to his promises and stay united for all.

Saving American Democracy From Corporations

The Supreme Court’s decision to unfetter corporate money-bag-400301_640political contributions needs to be reversed by local action!

Bernie Sanders had a point  in his quest for the reversal of Citizens United in 2012 but not the method to attack it. Bernie wanted a constitutional Amendment to reverse Citizens United; however using a sledgehammer to kill ants is not logical as it consequent side effects are too widespread. Bernie’s approach was just as illogical even though his goal was good for America.

Giving corporations the rights of human beings, specifically freedom of speech but defined in cash, makes no sense to most Americans.  In fact it is odious!  The citizens of America have forever fought the battle of efforts by the corporate wealthy to establish a corporatocracy and before corporation’s existed by those who wished for a Plutocracy.

Five years of the resultant legislative action and reaction (after Citizens United) is hard to reverse, just as will be the failed attempt at national healthcare by  those who legislated for ObamaCare. ObamaCare may be changed in name and in structure but its roots like that of many invasive plants will never be fully removed.

corruptionIn the case of Citizens United, a grassroots effort to chip away at its foundations accross America may be our best bet.  There is clear precedent for this approach when you consider the results of efforts to maintain the Right To Bear Arms and those of the movement to allow for Gay Marriage. Here is a story much on this point from The Atlantic…..

7 Foods Experts Won’t Eat

1. GMO FOODS (Any of them)

The Expert: Jeffrey Smith, author of Seeds of Deception and founder of Institute for Responsible Technology

The Situation: GMO foods encourage the massive spraying of herbicides on our topsoils, polluting the ground, waterways, animals and humans. Scientific studies have shown the RoundUp Ready genes in GMO foods to transfer to our intestinal flora and the pesticide producing genes, called Bt-toxins, to be present in both unborn fetuses and their mothers. In short, GMO foods pollute our environment and our bodies. No long term health studies of GMO foods have been performed on humans. In addition to polluting our bodies with mutant DNA, eating RoundUp Ready GMO foods insures a hefty dose of herbicide given that GMO crops are even more heavily sprayed than conventional non-organic crops. The environmental, political, economic, and social damage by GMO foods is staggering. GMO foods include corn, soybeans, sugar beets, potatoes, alfalfa, canola, potato, papaya, rice, honey, squash, rapeseed, tomatoes, sweet corn, tobacco, peas, and more.

The Solution: Check that all the food you purchase is non-GMO. Demand a halt to GMO foods any chance you get. Support mandatory labeling of GMO foods. Buy ORGANIC. Plant a garden

2. CANNED TOMATOES

The Expert: Fredrick vom Saal, PhD, an endocrinologist at the University of Missouri who studies bisphenol-A.

The Situation: The resin linings of tin cans contain bisphenol-A, a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to ailments ranging from reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Unfortunately, acidity (a prominent characteristic of tomatoes) causes BPA to leach into your food. Studies show that the BPA in most people’s body exceeds the amount that suppresses sperm production or causes chromosomal damage to the eggs of animals. “You can get 50 mcg of BPA per liter out of a tomato can, and that’s a level that is going to impact people, particularly the young,” says vom Saal. “I won’t go near canned tomatoes.”

The Solution: Choose tomatoes in glass bottles (which do not need resin linings), such as the brands Bionaturae and Coluccio. You can also get several types in Tetra Pak boxes, like Trader Joe’s and Pomi.

 3. CORN-FED BEEF

The Expert: Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farms and author of half a dozen books on sustainable farming.

The Situation: Cattle evolved to eat grass, not grains. But farmers today feed their animals corn and soybeans, which fatten up the animals faster for slaughter. More money for cattle farmers (and lower prices at the grocery store) means a lot less nutrition for us. A recent comprehensive study conducted by the USDA and researchers from Clemson University found that compared with corn-fed beef, grass-fed beef is higher in beta-carotene, vitamin E, omega-3s, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), calcium, magnesium, and potassium; lower in inflammatory omega-6s; and lower in saturated fats that have been linked to heart disease. “We need to respect the fact that cows are herbivores, and that does not mean feeding them corn and chicken manure,” says Salatin.

The Solution: Buy grass-fed beef, which can be found at specialty grocers, farmers’ markets, and nationally at Whole Foods. It’s usually labeled because it demands a premium, but if you don’t see it, ask your butcher.

 4. MICROWAVE POPCORN

The Expert: Olga Naidenko, PhD, a senior scientist for the Environmental Working Group.

The Situation: Chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), in the lining of the bag, are part of a class of compounds that may be linked to infertility in humans, according to a recent study from UCLA. In animal testing, the chemicals cause liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancer. Studies show that microwaving causes the chemicals to vaporize—and migrate into your popcorn. “They stay in your body for years and accumulate there,” says Naidenko, which is why researchers worry that levels in humans could approach the amounts causing cancers in laboratory animals. DuPont and other manufacturers have promised to phase out PFOA by 2015 under a voluntary EPA plan, but millions of bags of popcorn will be sold between now and then.

The Solution: Pop natural kernels the old-fashioned way: in a skillet. For flavorings, you can add real butter or dried seasonings, such as dillweed, vegetable flakes, or soup mix.

5. FARMED SALMON

The Expert: David Carpenter, MD, director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany and publisher of a major study in the journal Science on contamination in fish.

The Situation: Nature didn’t intend for salmon to be crammed into pens and fed soy, poultry litter, and hydrolyzed chicken feathers. As a result, farmed salmon is lower in vitamin D and higher in contaminants, including carcinogens, PCBs, brominated flame retardants, and pesticides such as dioxin and DDT. According to Carpenter, the most contaminated fish come from Northern Europe, which can be found on American menus. “You can only safely eat one of these salmon dinners every 5 months without increasing your risk of cancer,” says Carpenter, whose 2004 fish contamination study got broad media attention. “It’s that bad.” Preliminary science has also linked DDT to diabetes and obesity, but some nutritionists believe the benefits of omega-3s outweigh the risks. There is also concern about the high level of antibiotics and pesticides used to treat these fish. When you eat farmed salmon, you get dosed with the same drugs and chemicals.

The Solution: Switch to wild-caught Alaska salmon. If the package says fresh Atlantic, it’s farmed. There are no commercial fisheries left for wild Atlantic salmon.

6. MILK PRODUCED WITH ARTIFICIAL HORMONES

The Expert: Rick North, project director of the Campaign for Safe Food at the Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility and former CEO of the Oregon division of the American Cancer Society.

The Situation: Milk producers treat their dairy cattle with recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH or rBST, as it is also known) to boost milk production. But rBGH also increases udder infections and even pus in the milk. It also leads to higher levels of a hormone called insulin-like growth factor in milk. In people, high levels of IGF-1 may contribute to breast, prostate, and colon cancers. “When the government approved rBGH, it was thought that IGF-1 from milk would be broken down in the human digestive tract,” says North. As it turns out, the casein in milk protects most of it, according to several independent studies. “There’s not 100% proof that this is increasing cancer in humans,” admits North. “However, it’s banned in most industrialized countries.”

The Solution: Check labels for rBGH-free, rBST-free, produced without artificial hormones, or organic milk. These phrases indicate rBGH-free products.

7. CONVENTIONAL APPLES

The Expert: Mark Kastel, former executive for agribusiness and co-director of the Cornucopia Institute, a farm-policy research group that supports organic foods

The Situation: If fall fruits held a “most doused in pesticides contest,” apples would win. Why? They are individually grafted (descended from a single tree) so that each variety maintains its distinctive flavor. As such, apples don’t develop resistance to pests and are sprayed frequently. The industry maintains that these residues are not harmful. But Kastel counters that it’s just common sense to minimize exposure by avoiding the most doused produce, like apples. “Farm workers have higher rates of many cancers,” he says. And increasing numbers of studies are starting to link a higher body burden of pesticides (from all sources) with Parkinson’s disease.

The Solution: Buy organic apples. If you can’t afford organic, be sure to wash and peel them first.

Defund Hollywood! (and the U.N.)

Rosie O’donnel, an Elitist celebrity egotists who thinks you and I are drooling idiots continues to use the spotlight of Hollywood to try to overthrow American free choice and American values (none of which she could ever represent).

rosieodonnel-google-free-for-reuse

Elitist Rosie O’Donnel

This elitist snob who considers the voice of middle America and those Americans who have suffered financial ruin for the last 20 years,  meaningless drivel!

She does so by using her wealth and access to media to call for martial law to prevent Trumps inauguration!  Its another way of saying this to America.   “Middle America, American urban slum dwellers,  disenfranchised blue collar workers of Detroit,  you have no value!  You have no meaning!  You have no vote! You have no mind I respect!”

 

It’s time to DEFUND HOLLYWOOD and all those who have been made absurdly wealthy by the people they have no respect for, you and  I!

Meryl Streep used the money middle America paid at the theater to diss Middle America meryl_streep_google-lable-for-resuseand anyone who is not in her west coast wealthy snob circle.

Meryl knows what we don’t,  she like Rosie is just smarter and wiser than all of us average Americans.

She, Rosie and her colleagues picture you as lying drunk in front of a TV watching sports events and getting fat on beer and pizza.

She doesn’t think that you can think because you are not a hollywood star!

It’s the same situation in the United Nations, where incredibly wealthy Islamic nations have used their financial power to turn the U.N. into an anti-Israeli club to try to  destroy the only true Democracy in the middle east.

This is nothing more than an effort to decrease American power in the

george-soros-google-labled-for-reuse

George Soros (Billionaire)

middle east and fulfill Obama and Kerry’s vision of a One World Order. I for one will not let them dismantle America without a fight!

I do not give up the nation my father  fought for in WW II  and its allies like Israel, I will not give our nation to those like George Soros who funds his one world order dream with his huge wealth and overblown ego.

Actors whose greatest skill is being someone other than who they are (in other words a professional liar) do not now nor have they ever represented mainstream American values!  Their wealth keeps them fully out of touch
with what matters to Americans other than on the coast where their vested financial interest ally against the rest of us.

Actors are just another example of the unequal distribution of wealth that has given the power of the media to people who don’t represent us!  We need to tell.them to shut up by
taking away their
financial power.

An Entertainment Tax on Entertainers!

I suggest an entertainment Tax on all actors, shakedown-1340048_640sports…public entertainers on stage or screen of 90%.

I am sure they would  support this knowing that this tax be used to support their favorite charity, the poor and disenfranchised Americans they always publicly cry for when arriving in their personal jets.

Make All America Great Again!

libertystatueI hear America singing,” by Walt Whitman,  reminds us of the teamwork of many professions who, free to dream and earn the rewards of their work, made America not only great but possible!

The sovereignty of America’s people, not government, is the living body of our Nation!

Religious freedom for all, is not a restriction, it is the foundation of our ethics!

We build borders that welcome new brothers, but protect our national vision!

Diversity, not homogeneity, is the pillar of our strength!

Positive Thinking, not fear should be our motivation!

To make America “great again” requires keeping these dreams alive, it is not to dream the impossible dream but to live the possible dream, one so big that it draws people to us from every nation, one so big that it seems impossible.

The foundation our civilization is the acceptance of the diversity of those who choose to share our common values and ethics.  Every time we give away a piece of of our values we become more like where  people have come running from not where they want to go to! Compromise never feels just, it is just the way to go. The sovereignty of our people is not a flowing river to divert, it is a castle with walls to be defended!

Attributed to our Lady of the Harbor is the  quote from Emma Lazarus’ sonnet, New Colossus: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” Let’s make America great again, by being the American’s John F. Kennedy inspired, those who landed on the moon nearly 50 years ago.  Lets make it a nation of sovereign people, and take it back from the Corporatocracy,  Eisenhower warned us about!

I doubt any of us was thrilled with Trump or Hillary, but Trump held the molotov cocktails to throw at The Corporatocracy that is dominating America, at the Wall Street, who stole your retirement and paid no penalty and at those who would change our values to please a radical Islam, rather than welcome our Islamic brothers who choose to become Americans.

Make America Great Again, by not giving up our sovereignty!

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN FREEDOM’ DREAM? NOT LATELY? LET ME SHARE IT WITH YOU!

spaceshuttleatlantis-launch-01What was it in the distance; hard to see on this overcast day? It looked like a cigar with a pencil strapped to it; but, it was in fact the result of millions of years of mankind’s dreams, America’s unified pride and the results of individual freedom to achieve our dreams! As the sun came up from behind the clouds and lit the landscape the view shifted.

Joe stood near the water’s edge and observed this now gleaming pencil like object, pointing skyward, a half mile away across the intercostal. At that distant point in Canaveral it was T minus 30 seconds and the tension was building in the crowd of thousands. These people, like Joe, stood in the now hot florida sun, several deep from the road, waiting the experience of a lifetime. Hand held transistor radios reported from every direction weather and launch status in a cacophony much like standing in flock of excited seagulls.

Joe watched intently as the distant gantry rolled back and misty plumes of gas flared skyward from the dangling hoses. T Minus 5 seconds and crowd began to cheer! Then Zero hour and the flames erupted like a newborn sun beneath the ship. The very Earth below Joe’s feet began to vibrate but it was hard to tell if it was the thundering giant a half mile away or the crowds screaming, cheering and jumping up and down with excitement. Joe was sure it was both.

The niagara like cascade of water, cooling the launch pad, created clouds of steam so huge as to engulf and rise above, the now snail like ascent, of our dreams creation in its caressing arms. Then as if on cue, the huge rocket accelerated skyward to the awe of Joe and millions lost in their screams of joy and visions of America’s future. ……………. It was then we Knew America Was Great!

It was before the corruption of congress, the executive office and bribes from Industry, sucked the spirit, dreams, hope and financial strength out of Americans.  It was before the creation of the corporate cronyism that now rules America.

Freedom entails risks!  I for one will vote For Change! We cannot afford to go on with the corruption that Hillary is financed by!

Religion Is What Keeps The Poor From Murdering The Rich

Napoleon Bonaparte said “Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.”  Is that so today? Why did Napoleon believe this? Perhaps it was because he was thinking that the church was wealthy and the people poor?  This was indeed so back then and is pretty much true now.  The creation of disproportionate wealth was also true for  kings and other dictators then and now. Was his statement based on his historical understanding of the tenuous position that ruthless, selfish rulers had historically often created for themselves?

He certainly knew that the poor vastly outnumbered the rich and if they truly became aware of  their potential power, they could  possibly  take from the rich whatever they wanted.

I wonder if Napoleon would be surprised at the events of today?   Would it surprise him to see that madmen,  blinded by religious fervor and the rhetoric of power hungry clerics, use the power of  our modern day and ancient weapons to slaughter the common and innocent (not the wealthy)  in the name of what they call try to call “god.”

Would it amaze him to hear empowered leaders of nation states deny the very history their fathers had experienced? Liars are a common lot in history. But revisionists, daring to deny the history of their very fathers generation, in an era of instant communications, takes the art of lying to a new height.

I wish it was only the words of  Ahmadinejad  that made fools of his country and his fellow citizens in denying the holocaust, in recent history.  The videos of the Nuremberg trials and the newsreels  they showed,  during testimony,  are still fresh in the minds of free men (perhaps not the Millennials who appear to have missed a lot in their history classes). Unfortunately lying to your people is not just an Iranian phenomena.  Clinton, of course,  did not “have sex” in the oval office.  Nixon had his view of the story.  Bush may have intentionally exaggerated the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Those average people who live in North Korea, believe they have the best quality of life in the world, I am told. The mind police make sure this is so.

Perhaps, today we must try to assess the size of the lie and seek comfort in this distinction, though I find this personally unsatisfactory.  Possibly,  this may  have meaning for some.  Man is not perfect and when confronted with the public evisceration of  his ego, it is likely politicians, whose self esteem are buoyed up on the seas of opinion, will seek to lie (and for lots less than ego disembowelment).

Clinton may have lied about his sex life,  for which we would not seek to have him executed. Ahmadinejad however lied about the history of the most brutal destruction of 12 million people, that the main perpetrators themselves do not deny!  Well…. the Japanese have trouble with admitting to their mass rape stations they happily called “comfort stations.”   The Iranian people don’t have it so bad economically and so don’t want to lose what they have!  They have the profits of oil.  To rise up and take back their nation which is now controlled  by liars and religious fanatics however requires need and belief in what you can achieve.  I think the need is lacking, from their perspective, and perhaps we have “fallen from grace” as a role model to follow.  Just look at the pathetic quality of the candidates we have to vote for in the upcoming election! There are some really good liars here too.

Perhaps it is Iranian religion or the fear of  others who they do not know at their mosque,  that terrorists-feeforuse-googlekeeps the people from removing  their dictatorial and  fanatical  leadership.  Communist Russians feared expression when they did not know who they were talking to, so they learned double speak or did not speak out at all.  On the other hand, what model would Iranians seek if they did rise up and remove their leadership?  When we vanquished the iron fisted terror and torture of Saddam Hussein did that lead to a better land? Did these vastly different religious groups decide to work together or did the power vacuum create chaos?

Is our current national evolution and today’s American leadership a model,  something that everyone worldwide should be striving for?  In my experience of 70 years, we have certainly lost much of what made America great!  Because of hope and greater freedom,  I for one would not choose to live anywhere else; however, for people unaccustomed to more free choices and dreams of success, it might lead to chaos as we have seen in Iraq and elsewhere. I recall going to college 50 years ago and seeing this first hand. The first year sorted out who would stay. Children from homes where parents ruled with an iron fist and a leather strap, went crazy without that discipline. They were out drunk,  having sex, without thought of consequences, and rarely studying with any regularity, many failed and dropped out quickly.  Those who came from liberal homes, where parents let them learn self discipline (learn from their own mistakes) were no different at college than at home, for the most part they did just fine.  They did not require an authoritarian parent watching over them!

So back to the original question. What keeps the poor from murdering the rich?  I don’t see that religion is the answer, though it may play a part in it.  I think a good part of  it is the belief  that the poor have that they don’t have it so bad,  the belief that it could be worse in the hands of other leaders and the belief in whatever history they choose to believe in to support their chosen stagnation.  A great example of this is what Al Capone said after his conviction:  When convicted of heinous crimes, Al Capone said,  “All I did was try to provide the lighter pleasures for my countrymen and for that I live the life of a hunted man!”  He believed this, because it supported his ego, his belief that he was the “good guy.”  I think we accept pathetic leadership because we don’t believe we can do better and neither do they.  We all deceive ourselves, at least today, because that is how we gratify our egos!

One of the biggest problems today is the same that existed in the past, despite the power of hank-paulson-labeledforreuseinstant communication.  People don’t believe they know the truth,  they just pick what truth they want to believe. With that kind of truth and little self belief in empowerment powerful people can do anything they wish and get away with it.  They can even make us think that this is as it has been and how it should be.  If we want to keep the little we have carefully hidden under our mattress we don’t want change!  After all If  AIG and Goldman Sachs are still the financial “hereos” on Wall St. any lie will do if well presented. Hank Paulson helped our country fall into hundreds of billions of dollars of debt and yet he is still a free man.  I don’t think religion is protecting the wealthy or the corporate cronyism of our corrupt congress and corporations,  it is more like disinformation (the quick version of revisionism) and a fear of losing the last grains of wheat in our grimy clutching hands.

Even more powerful than disinformation, there is the modern version of “Let them eat cake.”

SONY DSC

This version is meant to be literally true as its power was early on recognized by Shakespeare, “Caesar: Let me have men about me that are fat, Sleek-headed men and such as sleep a-nights. Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look, He thinks too much; such men are dangerous.”  There is nothing like a welfare check to keep the “masses” in control.  Religious conviction is the hope of reward but reward is the hope in today’s deceitful politicians.

How To Choose The Next President!

TheDevilThe Devil you know or the Black Door?  

There is a story of an executioner who offered his condemned prisoners a special option! He was required, by law, to feed a condemned man a great breakfast after giving him a comfortable night on a good bed, the day before he was to die.

After breakfast the man was taken to a room where the executioner sat behind a large formidable desk as the man stood in front of him. On left side of the desk was an open door through which the condemned man could clearly see the armed soldiers ready to shoot him dead.  On the right side was a black door with a heavy metal bolt.

bolted.door.jpgThe executioner told the man that he had two choices. One was to stand before the firing squad and die quickly or two to go through the black door which would be bolted behind him and never opened again for him, no matter what.

All the condemned men chose to die at the hands of the firing squad.  In reality, behind the bolted door was the street and total freedom, that none ever lived to see!  However, people would always choose the devil they did know rather than the future they were unsure of.

In the coming election there are two real candidates, as Bernie is too old and too socialistic to make it,  even though he likely means well.

Between Hillary and Trump stand the two doors.  Hillary is obviously a Washington insider who has played and knows the ropes.  Hillary is a corrupt as the rest of our congressmen. Hillary has been paid huge sums by corporate America to speak for them and is in their pocket financially.  This is the same for all the wealthy politicians who are equally on the “take.”  Hillary has a record of disrespect for the law, as do many lawyers who feel it is only for us commoners. Hillary is a power broker who has connections and the inevitable entanglements it requires. Hillary is the known outcome we are familiar with. She has the power to get things done in a way we expect (but do we still want the same?).

Trump is an unknown.  Trump will obviously shake up the establishment.  He promises change and potentially freedom from an era of the Corporatocracy, that has taken over America.  He promises term limits that scares the hell out of congressmen, who have never had another job.  He promises change that we cannot predict and his style itself is unpredictable.

Hillary is the known evil we fear, but think we can live with. Trump is the black door that is so unknown it scares people who want a predictable life, even if it means their death.  Trump freedomdoes not scare me, Hillary does!

If you are a communist,  you want someone to “take care of you” from cradle to grave. If you are an American with pride, you are willing to take a challenge and overcome obstacles that an exciting future might offer!   Why chose death over life?  It’s taking a challenge that made America Great! We can do it again!
