Greetings good citizen,

I marveled at first that this particular article is the second most e-mailed from the NY Times but here I am blogging about it so I expect it is attracting attention for the same reason it attracted mine.

What can Mr. ‘Flat Earth’ possibly have to contribute on the US employment picture?

The answer, unsurprisingly, is nothing useful

Whatever you may be thinking when you apply for a job today, you can be sure the employer is asking this: Can this person add value every hour, every day — more than a worker in India, a robot or a computer? Can he or she help my company adapt by not only doing the job today but also reinventing the job for tomorrow? And can he or she adapt with all the change, so my company can adapt and export more into the fastest-growing global markets? In today’s hyperconnected world, more and more companies cannot and will not hire people who don’t fulfill those criteria.

But you would never know that from listening to the debate in Washington, where some Democrats still tend to talk about job creation as if it’s the 1960s and some Republicans as if it’s the 1980s. But this is not your parents’ job market.

Left to our imagination is how we’re supposed to survive here in the economic desert that globalization (championed by Mr. Flat-Earth hisself!) has created for us?

Perhaps more importantly is how long the oppressed people of a desperately over-crowded continent are going to remain complacent in the face of a decidedly ‘raw deal’?

The ‘race to the bottom’ is over good citizen and the over-populated Asian subcontinent won!

The ONLY way to crank out additional value now is to screw these already oppressed workers into the woodwork.

Because at the end of the day good citizen there is NO SUCH PLACE as the ‘cheaper there’.

Wonder why the global economy is so out of whack?

It’s because the ‘fucking bankers’ invented the cheaper there through currency manipulation!

They too will pay the price for their ‘malfeasance’, likely at the end of a sturdy rope.

This leads us to another troubling topic that has been gnawing at me for the past couple of day…and don’t all of the articles disappear just when I’m ready to address the topic.

And the topic is not ‘new’.

I’m sure you’ve seen all of the headlines in the corporate owned media heralding the ‘end of the NASA era…

And I’m sure most of you have asked yourself just what the fuck they mean by that?

Is our bought and paid for media telling us that our race is run, that it is all over but the shouting, that ‘the world’ has moved to China?

I even saw a political cartoon in the local rag yesterday that pretty much said nobody from the US was going back to the moon for a ‘long time’ (with ‘if ever’ being implied!)

Um, the part that should gall each and every one of you is these dirtbags have used the worst of Western civilization to destroy Western civilization (both here and in Europe) BUT they expect to be protected from prosecution by the laws of Western civilization!

Well, they’ve cooked their own goose when it comes to legal protection. Since it is widely accepted that they ‘own’ the courts, they won’t be given the, er, benefit of a trial!

Nor will one of their bought and paid for judges be allowed to preside over the proceedings.

Moreso because there won’t be any survivors than any other reason.

But I digress into speculation!

Although I will say this much; failure to deal with the perps harshly WILL RESULT IN A REPEAT OF THE WHOLE AFFAIR!

You may not admit it but we stand where our grandparents stood less than a century ago and their ‘mistake’ was in not dealing with these criminals in the brutal manner they deserved!

Let the criminals go free and they’ll repeat the behavior they were given a pass on the first time!

Well, they got away with it last time, I doubt they will be so lucky this time.

Although it IS different this time, we weren’t facing peak oil and the resultant social collapse the end of fossil fuels will bring.

Which brings us back to the ‘useless’ corporate media that has continually failed to alert us to the massive changes that are closer than any of us imagine.

Worse, when the change is upon us it will be too late for many of us to act!

What ‘change’ am I babbling about?

I’ve been warning for years now that energy scarcity will make all non-tropical regions of the planet UNINHABITABLE!

Sure our ancestors survived in the wilderness using wood for heating and cooking…but that was when the nation’s population was a tenth of what it is today.

How long do you think the forests will last for a population of over three HUNDRED MILLION?

Those of us who live East of the Mississippi tend to forget just how ‘treeless’ it is West of the same landmark.

(‘Forget’ probably isn’t the best word here but you know what I mean.)

Not that this is any kind of an excuse for throwing Western civilization under the bus!

It’s definitely one of those times where ‘sorry’ just isn’t gonna cut it.

Worse, the pundits don’t know what to make of the ‘non-response’ coming out of the public.

We have some definite extremely negative indicators flashing here and we got nada coming out of the victim’s corner.

I tend to think this is the ‘calm before the storm’. First blood is coming and I think we’re all waiting to see what that is, then all hell is going to break loose!

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
