Drain Bamaged...

Greetings good citizen,

As I have pointed out in many posts, I live in the red portion of a blue state and because of that I have found myself surrounded by Conservo-loonies.

Worse…and this is probably a function of that ‘one in five’ thing I keep pointing, to is one of my five siblings is married to, and has thereby converted to ‘conservo-whacko-ism’.

To get an idea of how this ‘disease’ affects the afflicted, observe the following, which was e-mailed to me this morning:
One should always be prepared. So, if someone asks you what the main difference is between most of the Obama supporters, and Romney supporters, instead of stammering, and stuttering, and looking for an answer, just tell them that the Romney supporters sign their checks on the front, and the Obama supporters sign their checks on the back.

You want to start off with ‘who, in their right mind would point out something stupid like this? But we have established at the beginning that these people are NOT ‘in their right mind’.

Worse good citizen, nobody from the >One Percent signs paychecks, they have ‘lackeys and underlings’ who handle such menial tasks.

So pointing out that the ‘minions’ of the uber rich are Romney supporters tells us what exactly?

It tells us that he has no chance of winning…legitimately. (Of course, neither did Reagan, Bush or anyone else elected after LBJ.)

The number of people who sign the front of paychecks couldn’t fill a thimble much less swing a national election in a nation where 50 percent of the population has been made ‘redundant’!

The people who threw you and others like you out on the street support the party responsible for the destruction of the global economy.

And now they’re STUPID enough to BRAG ABOUT IT?

In fact, when you stop for a moment and consider it, it’s pretty disturbing to consider the implications of signing the front of anyone’s paycheck.

It ‘infers’ that the signer ‘has the right’ to decide if the ‘payee’ is worthy of payment (and not the other side, that the signer ‘owes’ the payee for services rendered!)

This is how politicians call programs that you pay your entire working career into ‘entitlements’.

Even the jackass running for re-election calls programs YOU PAY FOR, entitlements! WTF!

But I digress…we were discussing debtors and the indebted.

Weirdly, the> One Percent LOVES (having their minions) sign(ing) paychecks…because they make money on each one!

In fact their whole ‘income stream’ is based on the difference between what they get for your labor and they buy it from you for.

Notice how YOU can’t get a raise but the ‘owner’ of the company keeps getting ALL of his ‘expenses’ picked up by the company, so he never runs short of money.

Worse, a lot of these ‘owners’ are the biggest deadbeats on two feet, they know the money is all funny so they don’t feel compelled to pay…ever.

But THAT little factoid is not for ‘general consumption’.

So who do you suppose is going to ‘benefit’ from this headline in a world where it is all the average citizen can do to keep wheels under their ass, a roof over their head and food in their bellies?
Potential for a Mining Boom Splits Factions in Afghanistan

With a trillion-dollar cache of oil, gold and other resources underground, hopes of self-sufficiency in Afghanistan are tempered by worries about corruption and security.
Who do you suppose is ‘worrying out loud’ for the Afghan peasants who are and will remain ignorant of this arrangement (unless and until they are forced off of their ancestral lands by miners and developers (posing as the Taliban?)

Why put it in the media at all, given our generally acknowledged powerlessness to put a stop to that which is sure to come?

Sadly the logic of advertising these ‘thefts’ is to provide the ‘pretense’ that somebody, somewhere, is keeping tabs on the activities of these thieves and this unnamed authority will insure the Afghan public receives their due. Just as future generations of Americans are coming into theirs, thanks to the ‘vigilance’ of our (bought and paid for) government.

How sad is it good citizen that?

That the ‘tracking’ of global exploitation serves as the illusion of propriety just as voting serves as the illusion of participation.

Which is to ask, point blank, HOW STUPID ARE YOU?

If you’ve already forwarded the above conservo-loonie message I received this morning to all of your contacts, the answer doesn’t matter. You’ve landed here in error and haven’t read down this far because your teeny, conservo-loonie head would have exploded!

Cruel bastard that I am, I WOULD bounce the following category of hapless victims off the wall a few times BUT it’s the ‘Only Game in Town’ and they WERE just following ‘instructions’…

How could they have known the final instructions would read ‘Here is your degree, now place the barrel of this pistol in your mouth, point it toward your braincase and squeeze (or jerk) the trigger?
Debt Collectors Cashing In on Student Loan Roundup

The Department of Education last year paid $1.4 billion to collection agencies to hunt down defaulters, a group that includes nearly one in six borrowers with a loan balance.

A Big Default Problem, but How Big?

This ‘latest development’ of predatory capitalism is perhaps the most disturbing.

Swindle children out of their future by grossly overcharging them for a shot at jobs that don’t exist, then make the loans irrevokable…WTF!

And again the bankers are NOT held responsible for their cupidity…

So I ask you again, good citizen, do we have a money problem here or one pisser of a legal one?

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
