Becoming a 99er is certainly a culture shock. Within the space of a couple of years, you go literally from riches to rags. When you first realize that you just can’t to go right out and get another job, you become angry as you see your world falling apart and know you made no mistake to cause your downfall. After a year with no money you find that you quit looking in shop windows and confine your time in the store to the grocery area as everything else is just out of the question.
As you’re selling off everything you own you are watching the rich Wall Street CEOs, who destroyed your life, prosper like they never have before. Then you find out that your government, not only does not care about your plight, but has actually participated in orchestrating it. At this point, some start thinking of suicide and others about murder. But the truly intelligent started thinking about arresting the criminals, taking the money back, and seeing the thieves punished. I think most 99ers have come to the healthy conclusion that all talk of unemployment extensions is just that, talk designed to stall.
The criminals in the elite are still stealing with both hands. You catch them stealing at the bank and they just change tactics and start stealing at the grocery store and the gas pump. The fact is I don’t know if 2012 is going to be soon enough. If we just keep waiting we may find ourselves holding our 2012 election in the third world.
I don’t know exactly what it is going to take to make the American public act. I guess maybe when we are watching our children and grandchildren starving to death in the streets with bloated bellies and blowflies buzzing about them maybe we will be able to find our courage. That is the trouble with living in the richest nation on the planet; many of us still have a lot to lose. And in a country such as ours, hope tends to spring eternal.
Our founding fathers did not allow themselves to be pushed to the point of hopeless desperation. But then they were not divided and in reality that is our biggest obstacle to over overcome. But we are making headway, as our people have seen through the propagandist’s tricks and found that united, realizing our power is as simple as ignoring the propagandists, who have always worked to divide us by race, religion, gender, and culture.
The American people and the American race were of a distinctive culture a mere thirty years ago. That is when the dividing tactics began as an attack on our vanity. What better way to divide people than to appeal to the individual and tell them, “You are better than your neighbor because you came from Europe and he or she came from Africa” or “You are a catholic and he or she is a protestant” or “You have more money than your neighbor and therefore you are superior and therefore you hate your neighbor because he or she wants you to give them something.”
What we have failed to see until the present is that our treasonous government is the mechanism of prejudice. When I hear someone complain about welfare, I ask the person complaining, “Did that poor person take your money with a gun or was it the government?” Right now, today, if all the poor refused welfare, do you really think the government would give one damn dollar back or even stop taxing you to any degree? No they would not.
Right now the rich are trying to turn us against one another to their benefit. See, it is not bad for the middle class person to say, take that welfare and food stamps from the poor person and give it to the rich corporations. And it is perfectly okay for the poor person to say take Social Security from the old and raise taxes on the middle class and give the money to the rich corporations.
What you can’t say is, take the $26 trillion back from the corporate thieves that stole it and give it back to the poor and middle class they stole it from. This they say is redistribution of wealth from the top to the bottom. Taking Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, welfare, and funding for schools and giving subsidies and tax breaks to big billion dollar corporations, on the other hand is called balancing the budget.
The $50 billion we are currently paying to big oil companies who are raping us at the pumps and making record profits, would easily pay for not only HR 589 but also a Tier 5 extension. Just look at these incredulous bastards and hear what they are saying to you.
You American citizens who have worked all of your lives and are now dying a slow death in squalor should be left to that fate so that the filthy filthy rich can add another couple of feet to their pile of wealth that already extends up into the clouds. A majority of that wealth consisting of the property that belonged to the 99ers before the filthy filthy rich destroyed our economy through their theft of the $26 trillion.
The time is right, we are united. We have the power, now let’s use it. I’m not sure just how we are going to apply the power. I hope there is some peaceful way left, but I am not a fool. The bottom line is lawless government is fertile breeding ground for vigilantism, which turns into chaotic revolution. We need to overcome our fears and stand as one united force demanding that the traitors vacate our country. If they refuse we must use our laws. That means charges, trials, convictions, and punishment in an organized fashion.
A chaotic revolution will so destroy our country that it will take years to rebuild, whereas a peaceful, though stern assertion of power will allow us to regain our freedom and prosperity, literally within a matter of months. Our enemies know this. That is why they are trying to push us to chaos. With chaos they get to rape our country right into the third world, then sit back and laugh at what they have done while in their Chateaus in Switzerland.
Unite people, talk to everyone you meet. It has come to the point that you are either for us or against us and there is little left to lose, except our chains.
God bless this Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.
