America Hater (post # 800)

Greetings good citizen,

Sometimes the news feed on your homepage yields a ‘gem in the rough’, like this one which brings us back to the important issue of ‘just who the hell ARE these idiots?’

Mitt Romney has accused president Obama of not being, er, ‘patriotic’ enough…

So ‘Dear Leader’ gave this response:

In the battle over "American exceptionalism," Obama used a recent trip to Asia to highlight America's role as the strongest and most influential nation on earth. In this election season, responding to the Republican critique is essential for Obama, the only incumbent ever compelled to show a birth certificate to defend his legitimacy.

"Sometimes the pundits and the newspapers and the TV commentators love to talk about how America is slipping and America is in decline," Obama said Wednesday at a New York fundraiser. "That's not what you feel when you're in Asia. They're looking to us for leadership. They know that America is great not just because we're powerful, but also because we have a set of values that the world admires."

"We don't just think about what's good for us, but we're also thinking about what's good for the world," he said. "That's what makes us special. That's what makes us exceptional." Republicans have seized on "American exceptionalism," a belief among many in the nation that the U.S. is special among global powers, and tried to portray Obama as expressing ambivalence about the promise of his own country. The message resounds with party activists who still admire President Ronald Reagan, who memorialized America as that "Shining City on a Hill" during the 1980s.

A ‘Shining city’ surrounded by some of the worst slums on the planet, but that’s the same no matter where you go in this world based on ‘predatory capitalism’.

Which brings me to my real point…the ‘either you’re one of us (a true blue, patriotic America Lover, [who happens to HATE Americans] or you’re one of those ‘America Haters’ that should leave if they’re so unhappy with the way (the 1%) runs things!

Yes sir ee, they like this hunk of real estate just fine…it’s YOU telling them what they can and can’t do that has their dander up!

They LOVE America (and want it all to themselves) but they make no bones about absolutely detesting Americans, especially the ones that were here first!

Which is to point out that only a few Americans believe they’re ‘exceptional’ (and this would go a long ways towards explaining why the rules that apply to you and me DON’T apply to THEM!

Laws are for ‘little people’.

Although we will be unable to find a single ‘scofflaw’ once the uprising begins. Execute a couple of ‘em and the rest are instantly ‘law abiding citizens’ with rafts of attorneys swearing it’s all true!

But I digress.

The question at hand is not just ‘who are these idiots’? Isn't there a whole boatload of other issues facing civilization that are far more pressing than who is more ‘patriotic’ than the next dingle-berry?

Has even ONE candidate come forward with a plan (and before we elect him would be the time to do it) with a workable solution to our economic woes?

You KNOW the answer lies in work sharing (not that the capitalists will like/support this necessity but ‘plan ‘B’ is to kill off the surplus workforce!)

They’d probably turn it into a ‘patriotic’ thing and ask for volunteers. You could just see it now. ‘take a bullet for capitalism, it’s your patriotic duty!’

Which is to say there is only a single solution that doesn’t involve genocide on a civilization destroying scale. (Would YOU trust a government that chose to murder the majority of your ‘fellow citizens’ as a method of, er, ‘restoring prosperity’? Or would you be wondering if next time you might find yourself on the wrong side of the ‘keeper’ divide?)

Now ask yourself WHY not one of the current field of candidates is proposing THE ONLY POSSIBLE SOLUTION?

Are these people REALLY ‘that stupid’ (or are they merely convinced YOU are?)

As I have stated before, the work sharing plan doesn’t work without making serious adjustments to the worker’s ‘expense profile’. (If we are to ½ their pay then we need to cut their expenses by that much or more.)

Capitalism doesn’t work that way but I’m cool with that because the statement ‘capitalism DOESN’T WORK’ is still true.

We CANNOT sacrifice our entire civilization for the reckless desires of a few psychopaths!

Which is to point out that if a majority of the population can’t make ends meet on the ‘average’ paycheck then it’s not the workers that are the problem but the people who (aren’t) paying them that are!

But you don’t see a single candidate working THAT little nugget into their platform either, do you?

Which brings us back to our initial issue, the fictional America Hater and the very real American Haters (who happen to BE in charge of this never ending misery-fest.)

I do not hate America nor do I hate Americans…although I do loathe the people in charge of this nation (and that’s a pretty, er, ‘tiny’ group.)

Ironically, more than half of us don’t vote…which is, er, ‘progress’ looking at it from a at least half of us aren’t fooled by this rigged election bullshit.

The question there is will those who refuse to vote also refuse to fight?

Time will tell, good citizen.

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
