The intensity of the propaganda push to raise the debt ceiling has become oppressive. Both the phony left and the phony right are now being revealed for exactly what we have said they are from the get go, and that is the phony one party system of, by, and for the corporations.
Barry the Rat came before the microphone on Monday and put forth the assertion that we the people just do not understand the complicated issue of the debt ceiling. I think the problem is that we the people now understand exactly what has been and is going on in our secret government.
This isn’t rocket science; it is simple addition and subtraction, red ink, black ink. It only became complicated when the con men and thieves started their campaign to rob us blind. When they laid that first bar chart in front of us we should have told them “No, we will stick with addition and subtraction. And if the numbers do not come out right someone is going to jail.”
If you go into the most complicated math, into the realm of quantum physics, the final equation is still derived through the simplicity of addition and subtraction. Multiplication and division are just simplifiers. If you go into algebra, icons are used to simplify big math problems so that it doesn’t take six pages to add and subtract a complicated equation.
Advanced mathematics has its place in situations involving extremely complicated variables, you know like explaining the origin of the universe. Where they do not belong is in our nation’s accounting books.
We have all seen how the unemployment number is manipulated and distorted using mathematical equations specifically designed to hide the truth of the factual addition and subtraction.
The debt ceiling is simple. We have borrowed more money than we can pay back. The solutions being offered are to cut expenditures or borrow more money and compound the problem. But see, this is how they take us down the garden path.
The fact that this government has been funneling our wealth to the corporate elite for the past hundred years cannot be denied. And the fact that the corporate elite want the rest of everything we have left cannot be denied.
This is what we are facing. They like to pretend they operate our government like a household. So let’s look at this like a household. In our household we are taking in $500 a week. As we are a growing family every dollar is accounted for. $250 a week goes to our mortgage, $50 for food, $50 for utilities, $50 for transportation costs, and $100 goes into a savings account for our retirement.
We keep our money in a jar in our house and we pay our bills monthly. On the last day of the month a thief breaks into our house and steals all of our money except $50,000 we have stashed in the bank for our retirement.
Now our house payment is due, our utilities are due, we have to have food, and we have to have transportation. The thief is identified. Believe it or not it is the guy that owns the bank, but the law enforcement refuses to arrest the thief and return our money. Worse yet, the bank wants to foreclose on us and take our home.
Now we are offered a choice. The bank will lend us the money we need to save our house and keep our utilities on, but as mentioned previously, we had just enough money to make it so if we take the loan we know we will not be able to pay it back.
Now the bank says that it is going to take our $50,000 in retirement savings to pay the interest on what we already owe them. And because the bank has been forced to do so that loan it offered us is now going to be at a much higher interest.
By now we have lost our jobs not only because we couldn’t afford to go to work, but come to find out the banker had robbed every house and business in the town and was doing the same thing to everyone else that he had done to us.
The bankster is a criminal. He has robbed us. Not only has he not been arrested and our money returned, but he is coming after the rest of everything we have as he is nothing short of a state sponsored loan shark. No matter what we do we are screwed and those in our government are complicit with the crime being committed against us.
Now do we take another loan out that we have to pay back by surviving without a home, food, and electricity? Or do we go take our money back from that banker and jail his thieving ass. They want us to think this is some big complicated issue that only they have the capacity to deal with. It is only complicated because they are making it so. Because you see, every damn one of them are on the banker’s payroll and are getting a portion of what he is stealing from us.
No to raising the debt ceiling and in the same breath you are not taking our Social Security. What you are going to do is go arrest that banker and take our goddamn money back. After which, cutting waste will be easy because once we have our wealth back we will not need socialist programs to survive.
God bless the Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.
