The Sole Super Power...

Greetings good citizen,

Two months to the next presidential election and gas is hovering in the four bucks a gallon range, and mind you, oil is less than a hundred bucks a (33 gallon) barrel!

Did I miss another hurricane closing in on the gulf or did another refinery shut down for repairs?

But then we have the price of gold back over $1,700 an ounce…not that value has a rigid meaning anymore. You think you have a handle on prices then the next thing you know the ‘king-makers’ go crazy and start valuing stuff at insane levels…and there isn’t anybody to stick their hand in their face and scream bullshit!

Nope, you can’t argue with ‘em. After all, they’ve got the >One percent behind them.

Which begs the question of just who the fuck is behind THIS nonsense?

(Wanna bet it's the same, er, people?)
Israeli Sharpens Call for United States to Set Iran Trigger

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized the Obama administration for not setting clear "red lines" on Iran's nuclear progress that would prompt the United States to undertake a military strike.

Probably the same rocket scientists who thought it was a ‘good idea’ to ‘restore’ the Jewish homeland right in the middle of the heart of Islam!

They could have gone anywhere, including the US but no, these bubble-heads HAD to re-fight the fucking crusades all over again!

More curious is the fact that Iran is nowhere near Israel…okay, let me rephrase that with they don’t share a single border with one another so it’s not like the Israelis cower at the ‘constant threat’ of an Iranian invasion.

Needless to say this whole Kabuki Dance is about the second largest oil reserves on the planet and nothing else.

Isn’t capitalism wonderful?

Or should you be more fearful that the rabid capitalists are the world’s sole nuclear superpower?

I mean India HAS the fucking bomb…why isn’t ‘What-a-Yahoo’ flipping out over that?

And now he has the chutzpah to complain that the Obama administration ‘hasn’t done enough’ to thwart Iran’s nuclear ambitions…ambitions that so far appear to be a figment of What-a-Yahoo’s imagination.

More disturbing is who the fuck is HE to be dictating what the US ‘should be doing’ to defend it’s ‘strongest ally’ in the Middle East.

Because, truth be told good citizen, with allies like this, who needs enemies?

Which brings us back to the issue of just whose side is our bought and paid for government on that we have nonsense like this?
U.S. Income Gap Rose, Sign of Uneven Recovery
By SABRINA TAVERNISE 21 minutes ago

The median household income in 2011 was $50,054, a level last seen in 1996.

Once again we are looking at data that has no relationship in reality. If they take ALL of the, er, ‘income’ and divided it by the number of households the number in the middle WOULD NOT BE the ‘median’.

The bottom 60% of the population of this nation (accounting for a majority of its households) only possesses two percent of the nation’s wealth.

So that smidge over 50 K is utter bullshit. What you’re seeing is the whole domestic take divided EQUALLY by all of the households…and you know it ain’t anywhere near ‘equal’.

Under the ‘actual’ income distribution, the ‘50% mark’ is still just under $30,000 and that DOES NOT mean that ‘most people’ make almost that much and the rest make less.

About five percent of the population makes roughly $5,000 north or south of that $30k figure the rest makes significantly less or considerably more.

And that’s part of what’s causing this, er, ‘concern’.

Because the whole fucking domestic pie is getting smaller and the >One Percent doesn’t want to explain why that is.

Worse, the >One Percent DOESN’T want anybody pointing out that this is their fault!

Because it is.

You didn’t ‘buy’ the government and neither did I. Think, think, think…WHO had the money to have the tax structure rolled back and ultimately shredded while blocking any trade restrictions/job protection legislation the unions might have supported?

Geez, it sure looks like only one party could have pulled it off, and the bigger their fortunes grew, the easier it became!

But you don’t need me to tell you this…you already knew!

Although you may not have known outright…but you’ve suspected them for quite a while, didn’t you?

At first you didn’t let this bother you. They were rich so they were obviously smart and they were Americans…or at least you thought they were so you never suspected they would do anything to harm America…I mean heck, they live here too…right?

Um, obviously not.

They don’t have homes all over the planet for nothing and some of them have arranged dual citizenship, for travel purposes of course!

Which is to point out that their ties to the US are ‘tenuous’ at best.

Their ‘loyalty’ is to their money…

Now reflect for a moment that these are the people who ‘bought’ our government, the last remaining nuclear superpower on the planet…

Now ask yourself who 'the terrorists' really are?

Chew that one over for a few minutes and try not to shudder…

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
