Fleecing the American Sheep

I truly believe the short-lived “American way of life” is indeed over.

I believe the only reason we had this brief revival of patriotism towards our country is due mainly to the Roosevelt’s and their contributions to change the horrors done to the majority of the citizens, the working poor.  The ones that hold everything together and make a better world for all, yet seldom if ever got a chance to share in that “American Dream!”

I don’t even know if I will continue the charade of voting and not just because of the electoral colleges, which should have been against the law to begin with, but because of the poor excuses for candidates.

There is no longer a “lesser of two evils” as there once was.  Most of them stink on ice!  They pretend that there are two political parties, but there really isn’t.  One party wants to pass mandatory healthcare and with this came the loss of decent coverage for many.  I know this as someone who was trying to purchase individual coverage before Obamacare that carried a $260 monthly premium in 2012 that changed to $530 now for the same low-end coverage just 3 years later!

Another party has it in mind to virtually reverse what the Roosevelt’s did to help the working class poor by union busting, after talking some into thinking just how bad these much-needed unions are now that they reap all the rewards brought about by them.  They also want to stop our much-needed Social Security.  I can still remember good old G.W. trying to tell people how much better it would be to simply let the people keep this money themselves to invest it in their own retirement.  Almost as dangerous as giving a monkey a gun, but that’s a whole nother blog post!

If the Roosevelt’s thought that the people could handle making these investments, they never would have issued withholdings so they could be taken care of later in their older years (refuse to call them golden).  Most would love to keep all their money, more beer that week, more wife-beating and drunk driving, cause that’s just how some of the working poor roll.  I know.  I’ve lived amongst them my entire life.  They wouldn’t use that money to invest if their lives depended on it and it does!

Between the loss of jobs and people’s homes because of the predatory lending that the government allowed to happen and the liberal trade agreements that hurt the citizens, there is not a good scenario that I can imagine for this country.  Without a complete overhaul of all the very wealthy now running everything, into the ground I might add, we the sheeple don’t stand a chance.  This country is no longer for or by the people but by these wealthy individuals who owe lots of favors to the people and corporations who got them elected and pass all the laws in their favor instead of doing what is right for the good of the country.

We cannot sit by and allow ourselves and our way of life to be destroyed by a few greedy, wealthy individuals.  We are going to have to make our voices and choices heard and not just by demonstrations or angry emails to our representatives, but by our everyday actions.  Boycott those you know are behind these things and frequent the small businesses in your area to keep them in business, discouraging the monopoly that is coming in all areas of our way of life.  When I was involved in demonstrating years ago it made almost no difference because there were not enough people who cared or got involved.  Used to make me angry that either people didn’t have the brains to care or they thought someone else was going to do it.

If these governors and congress people looked out their windows and saw a sea of people against what they are trying to do, instead of just a handful they laugh off, then maybe something will finally get done in this country.

It takes a village for a lot of things.

What I Know is Wrong With America

Hard to know where to begin, but here goes:

There appears to be a deliberate hostility towards the working class.  The very poor, those that can’t or won’t help themselves seem to have many options available to help them, monetarily, healthcare, food, etc.  It’s the ones that wish to be independent but were not born into a good environment by either being born to alcoholic ragers, crack whores or just some average Joe with a little below average wits and intellect.  If your parents didn’t do very well because of impulsivity, bad judgment, substance abuse or just plain bad luck with an attitude to match, chances are you will go that same route.  There is a lot of hoopla that you can be anything you set your mind to and that’s simply not true, as many have found out.

This is hard enough to face without our own government being allowed to turn against us as well by encouraging businesses to employ people overseas just to save a couple bucks, meanwhile with fewer jobs available, there will be people that will end up in shelters, jails or graveyards cause most won’t live out on the street.  Unemployment does not last forever and the people in our government act like people are rude or out of line to even ask for it, even though it’s their faults that these citizens don’t have their jobs to begin with not to mention that fact that they make all wage employees pay into that system!  No one deserves this kind of treatment from their government.  While our country tries to build up false or exaggerated charges against other countries so they have the excuse to go to war with them, they are actually guilty of much the same or worse to us.  What country would come to the American citizens aid if needed?  I can’t picture this scenario.

Our politicians have allowed some of our jobs to disappear because they are no longer for the citizens of their own country, but for their “One World Order.”  People used to hear this very Sci-Fi term but it’s now in effect.  It’s not something they are going to make real noticeable at first, and most don’t realize how bad it’s become already.  They won’t realize it til they are one of the unemployed or asked to take cuts so the rich can stay that way.  “One World Order” is what you are seeing when foreign companies are allowed to bid for a job in America against the American citizens that work and live here.  Contract job bidding has been around for a while and not a fair way to do business because it forces Independent Contractors to work for less than deserved simply so they get the job over another company.  Jobs should be given because of the skill and quality of the work done, not how cheap they will work.  That not being bad enough, and with so many that have lost jobs, our government has now decided that people that have come to this country illegally, should be allowed to stay and their children should be given an education to boot!  What the f’?!

Some have commented that the Democrats in charge of the White House at this time are doing this deliberately because they know the poor and illegal will become Democrats and they are trying to get the extra votes.  I do know there would have to be some kind method to their madness or this wouldn’t be happening.

The Republicans have been actively trying to eradicate all unions.  I am pro-union because I have seen the good they have done in the past.  Many that are anti-union say they don’t like the control they have over the employees, politically and such and that they are useless drains on the working man’s paychecks with the union dues collected.  I do know that many union leaders earn a tremendous amount of money that proves they don’t have the employees best interest at heart either.

The bought and paid for liberal media is really wrong and very manipulative.  There is proof of bias in reporting as well as totally leaving out important news and facts about the stories they do report.

I’m also very curious why the couldn’t save the life of journalists that are doing much-needed reporting in our war zones, yet our President chose to release a number of dangerous terrorists for the life of one deserter.  What’s up with that?

 

 

We The Sheeple Need to Topple the Steeple

This is not just a reference to the church, but to all establishment we are to bow to. 

Welcome to the future of employment in America. They are trying to get rid of all unions and businesses will work people to death for low wages. We need to demand that we be allowed to live in America again. To homestead, raise our own crops, work the land and stop being victimized by large corporations and banks. This is truly the beginning of the end for American citizens. Life has no purpose anymore.  All we are is chattel who are forced to sell our lives cheaply to make others rich and then be put upon as ultimate consumers and brainwashed into handing over our hard-earned pennies to others for things that we really don’t need or want.  What’s up with that?

No wonder everyone is losing it, depressed, drunk and disorderly. They are fed up with being worked to death for peanuts and being told every move to make both on the job and when they try to drive home. Everything needs a permit, someones permission. When will all of us get to be treated like adults? When we take our freedom back anyway we have to. When we try, we are arrested. That is not freedom.  But try we will because man has no choice when others force their hands.

The Right to be Stupid

yankeedoodlecarolBlissfully ignorant, is this really the preferred way to be?  Statistics show that the majority of the world’s population does not have a very high IQ (intelligence quotient).  I believe most are actually considered either below average or low average.  When you take into consideration how many of those with normal or maybe higher IQ’s are regular substance abusers which adversely effects intellect, I’m sure they will find themselves in the below normal group as well.  This makes for a scant amount of actually intelligent people on this planet.  This explains a lot.

This post piggybacks on my previous post “Will it Help The American Economy if There Were More Poor?”  When the Right to Work bill is signed into law by any state, it opens the door to slavery.  Slavery with a new look, much like our new working poor.  Please, the ones in control are not stupid enough to start using whips and obvious overseers, but you all know they have kept a similar technique for the working poor throughout our history.  Don’t blame Obama who wants to welcome all the illegals with open arms that have taken many of our menial jobs already.  By him doing this, the government will finally have an accurate count of exactly how many people are in this country illegally.  I’m sure the number will be staggering.  You do need to worry that there is no “good” party that is for the average American citizen.  The Democrats throw crumbs in the hopes to appease and the Republicans are hopeless elitists that think they are better.  This is not the basis for a country with any staying power.

Anyone that works and is in favor for “Right to Work” is hopelessly ignorant or in denial.  This will never benefit any employee.  Anyone with the ability to reason knows that no one with a choice will choose to allow yet another deduction (for union dues) from their measly paycheck.  These people will think they have one over on all the poor saps that keep paying their dues and get to enjoy the fruits of others labors in the respect of the decent pay that union bargaining has created.  What they don’t stop to realize is that most of those other “poor saps” that are paying will stop paying because the don’t wish to be saps and the unions will quietly go away.  The fools in office, much like the fools that cause this to happen, will say “see no one really needs or wants you here, taking money and making political ploys.”  Then once they are gone, the company will have to deliver the bad news to all of its saps, I mean employees, that due to new expenses, everyone has to take a 10-20% pay cut and I’m sure this will happen annually.  If not, they will start laying people off.  Of course the first to go are the very ones that created the non-union condition in the first place.  The ones that were so thrilled not to have to pay those union dues.

Will it Help the American Economy if There Were More Poor?

Governor (p)Rick Snider (purposely misspelled) signed the Right to Work bill into law, making Michigan the 24th state to begin this practice in the hopes of gradually phasing out unions.  The hope of the very wealthy, which this creep was before he bought his way to the governor’s mansion, is that more people will stop paying their union dues if their shops hire those that don’t have to pay dues.  They know the human nature of the working man and since every penny counts to most of us, they know that when enough people stop paying their dues, the unions will disappear along with job protection and better wages, and they won’t look like the union busters they are. 

What goes around, comes around and payback is a female dog.  They must not care what becomes of third world countries and the dictators and tyrants that live in them.  The peasants will only take so much, then history will keep repeating itself because people never seem to learn.
