Infinite optimism

Greetings good citizen,

It’s hard to tell which is worse, yesterday’s yearning for body armor or today’s howling like a madman over the gross willful ignorance being served up by the Corporate Owned media.

After thirty years of bending over backwards to ‘help’ the stagnant commercial sector of this nation overcome the self-inflicted wound of ‘market saturation’, I find it incredible that the ‘nitwit in chief’ (actually his puppetmasters) think ‘more of the same’ bullshit that put us where we are today will, er, ‘fix’ our rapidly expanding economic desert.

IF you are old enough to remember when all of this started then you remember hearing that the stock markets were stagnant because there wasn’t anywhere to expand, the markets for western goods were completely saturated.

Sort of like today but now that saturation is global.

There’s no more road to kick the can down, but then, like now, you’ll NEVER hear a capitalist admit that!

Instead you’ll get bullshit like this…

“We need to out-innovate, outeducate and outbuild the rest of the world,” he said. “We have to make America the best place on earth to do business. We need to take responsibility for our deficit and reform our government. That’s how our people will prosper.”

Naturally good citizen, there’s something missing from the above statement, a limiting clause if you will because it should be painfully obvious at this point in the game that we are not all going to prosper.

No, the ‘prizes’ will remain the same; drink the kool-aid, keep your mouth shut and do what your told and you get to come back tomorrow and do it again, until they decide they don’t need you anymore.

YOUR job has become THEIR hostage, and THAT should piss you off to no end!

Sort of redefines the term ‘my way or the highway’, doesn’t it?

Here’s the thing:

You become dependent upon ‘a job’ so you can ‘earn’ what you need to survive.

If there are no suitable jobs then it falls to society to keep you alive.

Welcome to hell on Earth.

If there are ‘holes’ in the safety net that society provides, it’s not their problem, it’s yours!

Why should the safety net be any different than an employer’s wages? If you can’t live on ‘em, tough!

While I have brought up the subject of our commercial system being ‘unsustainable' as well as being ‘mismanaged’ I haven’t belabored the by-product of combining those two factors, which, as you can imagine, is sadistic cruelty.

Which really redefines the concept of ‘we can’t make you do it; we can only make you wish the fuck you did!’

Nothing like having your nuts in a vise, is there?

And this good citizen is the reason why you will find humans living in the most inhospitable places this planet has to offer, yes, freedom is THAT dear!

‘Civilization’ was intended to provide the remedy for man’s inhumanity to his fellow man. Unfortunately, the ‘architects’ keep fucking it up by letting the wrong crowd ‘tinker’ with their designs.

If we look back in history there doesn’t appear to be a system of government that can survive generational change. A hundred years is pushing the limit. Our current system is bullet-proof BECAUSE it is over 200 years old. The corruption has become so entrenched that ‘cleansing’ it isn’t possible.

Besides, the ‘founding premise’ was corrupt from the get go. Our system was designed from the beginning to EXCLUDE YOU from the decision making process. You only got to pick WHO made decisions in your name without ever consulting you.

And THAT’S how we got where we are today!

Some of you may have noticed that we have no remedy for a politician who fails to act in our interests AFTER they’ve been elected.


(Which is why I designed a new way!)

But I digress…

No one should be A.) particularly surprised by last night’s SOTU sell-out or B.) roped in by the empty promises of ‘bipartisanship’ that have yet to happen.

Worse is the recent announcement that since turning traitor to the causes that got him elected, the president has (miraculously) come up in the approval poll ratings.

How sad is it that we only have the CO media’s word for this unseemly turn of events. We are once again forced to ponder just who the fuck they polled to arrive at such an unlikely outcome?

Was it Fox News?

Oh, P.S. by the way, after viewing the most trusted source for news (Comedy central) and seeing Jon Stewart’s takedown of Fox News I am amazed there is still a Murdoch owned media outlet still standing.

What does it take, do they need to hit you over the head with a 2X4?

Anyway, part of me wants to scream in outrage and the other part of me thinks it is already too late to act because there’s no way in hell they’re going to keep it together once things start to fall apart.

Which brings us full circle to body armor…if you haven’t got some, get some!

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
