Unnatural Selection

Greetings good citizen,

Our civilization continues to circle the drain…while the feckless few proceed to laugh all the way to the bank…

Which is misleading because none of these players are hurting for money or the things money can buy.

In fact, most of them don’t have a friggin’ clue how to make their way in this bad old world of ours.
Remembering her roots is what Rinehart fails to do. She forgot to add that if you want to become a millionaire – in her case a billionaire – it helps to inherit an iron ore mine and a fortune from your father, and to ride a spectacular commodities boom. Had she spent her life lying in bed and throwing darts at the wall, she would still be stupendously rich.

The rich lists are stuffed with people who either inherited their money or who made it through rent-seeking activities: by means other than innovation and productive effort. They’re a catalogue of speculators, property barons, dukes, IT monopolists, loansharks, bank chiefs, oil sheikhs, mining magnates, oligarchs and chief executives paid out of all proportion to any value they generate.

Looters, in short. The richest mining barons are those to whom governments sold natural resources for a song. Russian, Mexican and British oligarchs acquired underpriced public assets through privatisation, and now run a toll-booth economy(4). Bankers use incomprehensible instruments to fleece their clients and the taxpayer. But as rentiers capture the economy, the opposite story must be told.

Scarcely a Republican speech fails to reprise the Richard Hunter narrative, and almost all these rags-to-riches tales turn out to be bunkum. “Everything that Ann and I have,” Mitt Romney claims, “we earned the old-fashioned way”(5). Old-fashioned like Blackbeard perhaps. Two searing exposures in Rolling Stone magazine document the leveraged buyouts which destroyed viable companies, value and jobs(6), and the costly federal bail-out which saved Romney’s political skin(7).

Curious to see people like Mitt claiming to be ‘self-made men’ when his father was a public figure as well.

Where do you suppose the Mittster got the ‘seed money’ to start Bain Capital?

Then there’s the choice of names there that give us some pause, considering what a slight difference in spelling Bane instead of Bain means.

And how many companies did the Mittster, er, ‘eradicate?’

I mean, nothing like a little ‘truth in advertising’, nicht whar?

Um, this article that wags its finger in the face of the privileged is worth the read and it’s only a couple of pages…

Otherwise there was more rioting in the Eurozone over the, er, renewed enforcement of austerity in Spain as well as in Greece.

Worse, the other Mediterranean countries are watching this CF ready to blow and they’re not sure what to make of it.

Will there even be a Eurozone a few weeks from now or will they be forced to join the struggling nations in austerity for a doomed attempt to ‘save’ a failed currency?

But naturally, the problem is deeper than that. The reason the currency has crashed and burned is due to the criminals hijacking all of the jobs and closing all of the factories so no one could compete with their monopoly on third world suppliers.


If you have nothing to trade then you have NOTHING!

The entire US economy now consists of raw materials and some esoteric financial products…and nobody is buying the financial products considering what happened the last time.

Yet, er, ‘we’ have made zero progress repairing our local economy because the people in charge here are too stupid to realize what needs to be done.

Especially Wall Street.

But this too is a function of a ‘captive audience’. They can’t change the way things are done because the people who fucked it up don’t want it changed.

Which leads us to a tragic set of circumstances.

Your children’s future being decided by a criminal.

If we fail to remove the criminal element running this society then our species is doomed.

Some of you are savvy enough to know that sometimes nature requires you to fight to the death if you want to continue your bloodline.

Would you give up on your family history now just because some chiseler decided you were ‘superfluous’?

Understand, he’ll make YOU redundant before he sacrifices his chances!

You really only have one option and that’s to take the mother out before he gets you!

Just a little something to chew on while your waiting for the next shoe to drop.

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
