Reading The Riot Act… Fair Warning, Withers.

September 8, 2016

There is a historical basis for the expression: reading the riot act. The act, known as “An Act for preventing tumults and riotous assemblies, and for the more speedy and effectual punishing the rioters,” was enacted by Parliament in 1715. Before arresting persons under this law, the law had to be read aloud, allowing people to disperse and to assure that they knew they were in violation of the law.

People talk of the death penalty being in the bible as a justification for capital punishment. But how was the biblical death penalty enforced back then? It was only invoked after a series of requirements were met – chief among them the criminal had to have been told in front of two witnesses that what he was about to do was indeed punishable by death.

People have to know before being held culpable.

Even the mythical Jesus of Nazareth said, “Forgive them for they know not what they do.”

Well I am putting Withers on notice: If you are With ➡︎HER then you side with murder and death on a global scale.

Hillary Clinton’s stated Raison D’être, from her own mouth, for being the president is to be able to launch war to ATTACK and DESTROY countries she sees as led by “bullies,” a mind-numbingly jejune attitude for an elderly woman to have. It reeks of the schoolyard she must have dreaded as a child.

As Secretary of state, Clinton’s bloodlust and eagerness to fight anyone she perceives as a bully led to the massacres in Libya, and Syria, and Honduras. And she refuses to acknowledge it. Worse, she DEFENDS it.

This is who Hillary Clinton is. A neocon warrior who will plunge the world into more wars. Neocon Republican Robert Kagan said to the NY Times in 2014: “I feel comfortable with her on foreign policy,” Mr. Kagan said, adding that the next step after Mr. Obama’s more realist approach “could theoretically be whatever Hillary brings to the table” if elected president. “If she pursues a policy which we think she will pursue,” he added, “it’s something that might have been called neocon, but clearly her supporters are not going to call it that; they are going to call it something else.”
This praise is from the neocons who planned her run for years while you Withers were not paying attention. As the NY Times discovered in 2014. The people who needlessly invaded Iraq and Afghanistan – where America STILL wages war to this very day are WITH ➡︎HER.

screen-shot-2016-09-08-at-7-59-26-pm

She is a neocon. Why do you suppose almost all the G. W. Bush team endorses her? Because they like change and peace?

Where Hillary Clinton gets her deep need to fight and destroy, whence her fixation with seeing bullies under her bed, I leave that to the psychiatrists she should have had treating her over the course of her life. But there is a clear sickness there. And for the world, there is stark  danger.

As the late-Christopher Hitchens cogently noted in 2008: “As for Mrs. Clinton, as for all she’s done for us and after all she’s suffered on our behalf, she feels she’s owed the presidency and who could possibly disagree? Her life is meaningless if she doesn’t get at least a shot and one can only sympathize. Unless you think, as I do, that people should be distrusted, who are running for therapeutic reasons,” said Hitchens. “Because the Presidency doesn’t calm those demons, as her husband has already proved.”

Hillary Clinton NEEDS war. Fighting is central to her stated image of herself. Fighting defines her. She is a HAWK who quotes Reagan at every opportunity.

screen-shot-2016-09-08-at-8-07-34-pm

Last night in a softball TV interview on being Commander-in-Chief, Clinton said she will destroy Syria through air power.

Vote for her and you support that.  Period.  There is no wiggle room.

NO MORE UNCONSTITUTIONAL WARS OF CHOICE.

If you support Hillary Clinton, you support wars.

And more wars.

Your vote will say it is just fine with you. Hillary will use YOUR vote to claim a mandate. Then she will attack.

And the blood of innocents will be on your hands.
Not mine.
I will never support any conservative war-hawk.
You have been warned.
You have no excuse now.
This is the Riot Act.

People have to know before being held culpable.
NOW YOU KNOW

 

Supreme Court Hysteria… Don’t Buy It!

August 5, 2016

So many people who have only a sketchy idea of how our government operates are quivering in fear over “losing” the Supreme Court. And when that happens ALL OUR RIGHTS WILL BE REPEALED!!!!!

First of all… look at my earlier posts here about FEAR.

People who instill fear in you are playing you. They are manipulating you. They are causing you to FEAR simply to further their own political agenda. There is a word for people who use fear to promote political change: TERRORIST!

So if you are one of those frightened people, take a deep breath and read, because your fears are toothless… BEHOLD:

This may shock some of the people only now paying attention, but the US Supreme Court does not have the final say in anything.

What they do can be undone or even superseded. For over two centuries, our government has had an effective set of CHECKS AND BALANCES which temper radical changes, and prevents any one branch from controlling things. Ask President Obama, who – although wildly popular – cannot get his new right-wing Supreme Court nominee a Senate hearing, and who has had much of his “legacy” tossed out by the courts as unconstitutional.  Those are our checks and balances in action.

You fear: SUPREME COURT WILL ELIMINATE…… whatever your pet cause is…
Well, the court almost never hears cases they have already decided and even Clarence Thomas (put on the court by Democrats!) has often said that they will not reverse “settled law” including Roe v. Wade. To do so would bring utter chaos.

But… what would really happen if they did? Suppose a radical court just decided to reverse all manner things? 

To see what would happen, let’s look at a recent time when the Court actually did eliminate something:

In 1972 the Supreme Court voided all death penalty sentences.
And we have not had a person put to death in America since… right?
Right?
Here is how it works.
The court only says that something violates the constitution, in their majority opinion. Not whether it is good or bad, right or wrong. So let’s say they opine that Same Sex Marriage is unconstitutional AS WRITTEN.
Then the laws get re-written. Or, and here is something lawyers know but most citizens do not: Local jurisdictions CANNOT give fewer or less legal rights than the Federal Government does but they CAN give MORE rights than the federal government.
So even if Same Sex Marriage is rejected by SCOTUS, your state and all the states can do it anyway.
And going by the decision that threw it out, the states will tailor the law to survive a court challenge.
Then it will be allowed.

Just as they reintroduced the death penalty.

But it takes… Work.

Hitting the streets. Lobbying. Organizing. And yes, many people worked hard for the right to kill people. Can you work that hard for life-affirming laws you support?

Remember: The Supreme Court is but one PART of one of THREE co-equal branches of our government.
They do not have the final say. Not by a long-shot.
Ask anyone on death row.

How To Decide Anything…

August 1, 2016

Mardi Gras readings

In my work as a Tarot card reader, people frequently asked me how they can best select a personal reader for themselves.

Many factors go into this decision, but I do have one bottom line: if you feel worse after a reading than you did before the reading, never go back to that reader. A reader who fills you with anxiety and fear is preparing to fleece you. An ethical leader helps you.

The same can be said of choosing a political candidate. If you listen to a candidate or see their ads, and you come away feeling scared, that is not the person to vote for. I don’t care what party they may be in, for their age or their gender. One thing is perfectly clear: Inducing fear in you is a way to stop you from thinking rationally. Fear puts us into the Fight/Flight mode and curtails thinking. That is the only reason to put anyone in a state of fear.

You can see the fear technique in full display here:

Whether it be a Tarot reader, to whom you tell your deepest thoughts, or a politician in whom you put your deepest hopes, avoid anyone – and I mean anyone – who deliberately scares you. There is money and power in fear. It’s your money and your power that gets taken.

Speaking of The Music Man, that show is set in the year 1919. That’s the same year in which a very important book on the subject of fear appeared: Unmasking Fear by Lloyd Kenyon Jones. To read more about that book, and a new edition for which I provided the introduction, click this image:

The Last VP Who Took Gifts As Governor…

July 23, 2016

Washington, DC: Vice President Agnew, left, held a last-minute meeting with President Nixon at the White House, September 10, just before departing on a week-long, six-state swing to campaign on behalf of the Republican candidates. Agnew's trip is regarded as the first part of an intensive campaign, which should keep the vice president on the road frequently until election time, in a Republican effort to capture the Senate and House and retain control of the state capitols. --- Image by © Bettmann/CORBIS

Anti-Democracy “Liberals”

June 19, 2016

13495130_10201900516552357_1879012540287292223_n

The frustrated Withers have turned from gloating to mocking. They simply cannot admit to themselves that a little-known senator went from 60 points behind the “inevitable” candidate to SUCCESSFULLY STOPPING HILLARY CLINTON FROM GETTING THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION.
He and his supporters did it!
Now, as the next step in the nominating process approaches, the Withers want that next step to just… go away.
As President Obama said last week: “Bernie Sanders has earned the right through what he’s done in this campaign season to end this campaign on his own time, on his own schedule.”
And rather than end now, which he doesn’t have to do, Sanders has decided – AS IS HIS RIGHT – to go to the convention.
The Withers HATE THAT.
Yet, this is DEMOCRACY IN ACTION, and it is galling to these “liberals” because – as Phil Ochs noted: “Liberals are 10º to the left of center in good times but 10º to the right of center when it affects them personally.”
They LOVE, LOVE, LOVE democracy – until it fails to give them what they want WHEN they want it. Then they denounce democracy.
That is what every call for Sanders to drop out is doing.
Each such call is a demand to END FREEDOM OF CHOICE.
It is ANTI-DEMOCRACY.
This anti-democratic attitude does not bode well for a potential Clinton Administration.
Vote your conscience, not your fears.

Why Does Hillary Need Sanders To Quit?

June 12, 2016

     Despite the media spin, after his meeting a few days ago with President Obama, Bernie Sanders clearly stated that he is in this race through to the convention. The video is barely 5 minutes long. See it if you have not seen it yet.
Sanders’ insistence that he will continue irritates the hell out of the Clinton contingent.
Why?
Sanders is talking democracy, and the Clinton crowd calls it sexist, egomania, insanity…
It is democracy. And even Pres. Obama, through his press secretary, said that Sanders has “earned the right” to make his own decision on whether or not to stay in.
So why is this a problem for the Clinton wing of the Democratic party?

Why, if Mrs. Clinton is the “official” Democratic nominee, does she even need Sanders to drop out?

What difference could his staying or going possibly make? This begs examination.

     Simply put, If Clinton has the required number of delegates, as she claims she has, then what’s the fuss?  All that will happen is that the convention will hold ONE public round of voting and she will be the nominee.

Cue the deluge of Red, White, and Blue balloons!

🎵 🎵 Happy Days Are Here Again! 🎵 🎵

Blow those horns! Shout! Scream! Cop a feel from the delegate nearest you!

     But if this is what will happen, because Clinton has it locked up (right?)… why must Sanders drop out? Isn’t it worth it to the furious “Withers” to humiliate Sanders by making the grumpy sexist egomaniac sit through the whole Megillah, festooned with Clinton’s victory balloons? Does he not have this coming?

     Let’s try to find out what is really back of this bizarre demand that a person who has lost… should quit. To that end, I will entertain an exercise in ratiocination.

What is it that is looming in the near future that Sanders will be involved with but that worries Clinton?

Certainly not the DC primary on June 14th. Piffle!

Is it the final California count, which is inching to a close?

No.
These are minor things.

It simply has to have something to do with… the convention.

Something about the convention isn’t quite going “With Her”… What is it?
Let’s Examine the options.

THE CONVENTION PLAYS OUT
Let us say that – as was the case with candidates in the past – Mrs. Clinton, thoroughly convinced that she will be the next president, views the televised convention as the first big, splashy public moment in that presidency – rather than the simple insider nominating process it actually is.

     In this case, the convention would assume a larger place in her mind than such a routine process actually holds. It will become crucial as part of  a larger plan.

Clinton, clearly, sees an urgency in stage-managing the convention to salve her own needs, not the needs of the party and not the needs of the system.

     A well-oiled coronation will provide Clinton with a Niagara of adoring video clips and sound bites for the coming general election, which in her mind she also has locked up, just like she locked up the nomination. But slick advertising will always be needed – and what is better than images of a cheering, weeping-for-joy throng at the convention?

     So what, as things stand now, will the Democratic convention look like?
     The delegates from the 50 states and the several territories will place names into nomination and then pledged delegates will be given alphabetically, state by state, territory by territory. You know the drill:

Each state/territory will have its moment in the sun, on national television:

“The great state of Wyoming, gateway to… Wyoming. Home of… Wyominganians… The state that Milt Kamen said does not really exist, DOES exist and casts its delegates – CLINTON 43 (cheers) SANDERS 55, (sustained cheers)!”

Oops. That doesn’t look so good on TV for Clinton, does it.

And on it will go. State by state, territory by territory.

A DEATH BY A THOUSAND CUTS
SANDERS! SANDERS! SANDERS! SANDERS!
will ring out time and again, from each delegation because the democrats didn’t have a “winner take all” primary system (which you can bet the farm they WILL have by 2020).

At three minutes for each geographic location and its delegates, plus interstitial applause and spontaneous cheering, this first round of voting should take no less than three hours. On TV.

SANDERS! SANDERS! SANDERS! SANDERS! will be repeated over and over, as will the spontaneous peals of BERNIE! from the crowd.

For Hillary, who has already claimed the nomination and treats it as a fait accompli, this democratic process will not be just poor optics, it will be the death by a thousand cuts – even if she wins. But she won’t win because:

One by one, the states and territories will mete out delegates and after all that time – Clinton will have gathered more than enough pledged delegates to be declared, under the DNC rules, a “WEAK FRONT-RUNNER.”
Not the nominee. But a “WEAK FRONT-RUNNER.”

Yes, after the first ballot, Hillary Clinton will go down in the history books as the first American woman to ever be declared, by a “Major” Party… a WEAK FRONT-RUNNER.

Swell…

More than three hours of this on international television, beamed around the world and even up to the International Space Station, and at the end of the voting Hillary Clinton, “presumptive” nominee will not have won.

No Balloons… and Happy Days Are not quite here yet.

At this point, Clinton’s claim to have the nomination all sewn up will evanesce, as it is revealed to be premature, at best – and arrogant for sure, since Hillary Clinton arrogated the convention’s responsibility by assuming the mantle of nominee, as though it were a $12,500 Armani coat.

And then following that first round of votes… but after an interminable break for talking heads all over the TV spectrum to say over and over what lousy optics this is for Clinton and how un-leaderly it seems – another round of votes will ensue.

Only, not right away.

More time. A meal break, during which Clinton will avoid the media – something at which she excels considering that as I write this in June of 2016 she has not had an open press conference since December 4, 2015. She will chew on a burger, and chew out her staff in one of her notorious fits of anger. You know what it is like if you saw Clinton bite the head off a Greenpeace representative who asked her a simple question.

    For at this stage of the process, after the first vote and with no nominee selected, the Super Delegates we have heard so much about will vote. This is their moment. This is what Super Delegates were created for: To reevaluate the qualities that led the front-runner to be such a weak front-runner that the nomination is could not be given out on the first ballot.

These Super Delegates, there to protect the party from a weak candidate who only manages to scrape together a small majority, have the power to vote for whomever they deem strongest against the Republicans – and you can be sure that the cheering and demonstrations for each candidate seen during the initial vote will influence the process. It is meant to. That is participatory democracy at its finest. Liberals LOVE democracy and free speech right? Right?

And now, the arm twisting and horse-trading will commence. None of this will look good for the “presumed” nominee around the globe – or in outer space – ON TELEVISION.

Clinton may emerge as the nominee at this point, but only after floor fights and demonstrations and maybe with a smaller margin than she had imagined possible given her “inevitable” status.  But get this part perfectly straight: if there is any screwing around with the process all hell will break loose, as it damn well should. Remember, despite unbelievable obstacles, Bernie Sanders has won the support of HALF OF THE DEMOCRATS. The other half loses sight of that at their own peril.

But the convention process – an open and democratic process – apparently does not assuage Clinton’s personal need to seem inevitable, a need so clearly evinced since last year when the DNC named Hillary and Hillary alone as their choice.

Long before a party nominee is selected, the process will show Clinton for exactly what she is: A WEAK FRONT-RUNNER.

UNLESS…
Unless, DRUMROLL, Sanders retreats. Throws in the towel. Capitulates. If he does, then the convention becomes the Hillary Show, unfettered by democracy and untainted by the opinions, beliefs, and principles of half the Democratic party. Good luck with that in November. Keeping Sanders in may be bad for Hillary’s grandiose vision of her place in the world, but it is good for democracy and will be needed to maintain the goodwill of half the party.

And the hypocrisy is…  after quashing democracy (if Sanders quits) or having failed to quash it (as seems the way it is going for her) and going the long way around, Clinton will speak of unity as though she were a Great Healer (the speech is already written, you better believe)

This is why, to Hillary, Sanders has to go. And why, to America, Sanders has to stay.

Hillary’s optics, arrogance, ego, neediness will do her in sooner or later.

For her, it is not enough to win. Everyone else has to be wiped out. Now, where have I heard that before?

 

 

 

The Sting, Part Three…

June 4, 2016

sting
See all those LIKES? All those SHARES in the post above? All is going exactly as planned… planned by Trump.
And the posting group makes the claim that “this so needed to be said”?

Yeah. That’s Trump’s sentiment in a nutshell. He needs this constant media coverage.

Just keep posting articles about him. Keep talking about him on CNN. That kind of media coverage is how Trump wiped out all competition in the primaries. But you weren’t looking because you were reading how he was a buffoon doomed to fail.

Don’t these media saps know that Trump says all those “insane” things PRECISELY so he can suck all the oxygen out of the room? Or, as he said it, “I’m going to suck all the oxygen out of the room. I know how to work the media in a way that they will never take the lights off of me.”

The LIKES and SHARES and COMMENTARY on the post above? Just what Trump wants.

To repeat: “I know how to work the media in a way that they will never take the lights off of me.”

Don’t people constantly say TRUMP IS A CON MAN? We all know he is a con-man, yet look at all the press he generates.

He knows what every successful con man knows: when the marks are blown off, they should not even know they’ve been played. This is why so many Trump University suckers ARE SATISFIED.

Now look how PROUD the marks who posted the story above are… for what? For just having posted this.  They got stung, they don’t know it, and I assure you they will come back for more.
(And no, I shared an image NOT the link. Sharing these links is for saps.)

Listen: Concerning all the web links on Social Media to items like SHE TAKES DOWN TRUMP AND IT’S AMAZING!… no it is not amazing. IT IS PUBLICITY and that is precisely what Trump counts on.
Didn’t you read this explanation of HOW HE DID IT?
“I’m going to walk away with it and win it outright. I’m going to get in and all the polls are going to go crazy. I’m going to suck all the oxygen out of the room. I know how to work the media in a way that they will never take the lights off of me.”

And that is exactly what Trump’s “The Judge Is A Hateful Mexican” ploy did, with an assist from FOX/Megyn Kelly. Before that, people were talking about the California Primary. Now they are talking only about Trump. And that works to his benefit.

Trump won the primary contest that way and the only thing that I find AMAZING is… people still fall for it.

Until the AWESOME SPEECH, Everyone was talking about Hillary and Sanders meeting up in the California primary, but now the lights are all on Trump. ONE MORE TIME: “I know how to work the media in a way that they will never take the lights off of me.”
All the people gloating over his EPIC TAKEDOWN are a species of ripe marks such as Barnum never imagined.

Yes, the Withers are all agog over Clinton’s EPIC TAKEDOWN of Trump, but is that speech enough for a campaign? Think Hillary’s speech is a winner? Well, she cannot run on that. Sooner or later Hillary will have to answer questions.
AND SHE HAS NOT HAD A PRESS CONFERENCE IN SIX MONTHS.
Kinda takes the bite out of calling Trump a coward. But, hey, she has that speech.
“Remember that speech I gave in June?” will not make a successful campaign.
As she herself knows, and said in 2007…

The Democrats need a strong candidate. One not under a cloud for violating security laws and violating the Freedom of Information Act. Just when the Republicans have their worst candidate in 50 years, the DNC anoints Nixon in a Pants Suit. Brilliant move.
When the convention comes about there will be a choice because no matter what the Withers say, nobody gets the nomination on pledged delegates with fewer than 59% of the total. And Hillary isn’t going to get that.

The Super Delegates will have to decide which democrat is stronger.  The numbers? This is the number the delegates had best pay attention to… Trump is WAY more trusted than Clinton. Get a strong, TRUSTED candidate or else Trump wins. We have to do better than THESE TWO:

19%

The Clintons and Plantation Politics

April 15, 2016
hillary-clinton-old-hag-7

*****

There is a big swing Sanders will soon take against Clinton and she knows it is coming. Yet I predict she will be compelled to walk right into it; even force Sanders to use it.
Both Clintons cling to the patronizing, condescending, extremely White supremacist notion that Black people in America are either criminals or crime victims, all of whom desperately need help to stand on their own two feet. All Black youth are “inner city” denizens who live “at risk.”
In Clintonian America, Black people seem to have a very narrow range of concerns. When Sunday rolls around and the Clintons inflict themselves on every Black church from New England to the Mason Dixon Line, what do they talk about?
Will they ever take to the pulpit to discuss international trade? Global warming? GMOs? Health care? Regime Change (including Honduras) which the Clintons so love? The decline of the bees, so vital to agriculture? No. The message is always about crime, welfare, and “at risk” youth.
And if, at these events, a few Black persons should have the gall to rise up and show offense – then the Clintons erupt is an orgy of self-congratulation about all the Black people they saved from either a life of crime or from the bullets of criminals.
Here is Bill when challenged by BLM:
“I had an assault weapons ban in it [the crime bill]. I had money for inner-city kids, for out of school activities. We had 110,000 police officers so we could keep people on the street, not in these military vehicles, and the police would look like the people they were policing. We did all that. And [Joe] Biden [then senator and chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee] said, you can’t pass this bill, the Republicans will kill it, if you don’t put more sentencing in it.”
This is how Hillary and Bill always frame their appeal to African Americans.

And when she makes the inevitable strident attack on the Sanders civil rights record, he will take that swing I mentioned above:
Madam Secretary, I refuse to be criticized on the issue of Civil Rights by a former proud Goldwater Girl.

I believe Mrs. Clinton will invite this retort willingly – so that she can then comfortably and conveniently blame her loss on “that one damn Goldwater line Sanders said about me,” and not blame it on the clear fact that people just don’t want her, and don’t like her, and certainly do not trust her.

 

CRONY CAPITALISM

March 5, 2016
Chelsea Clinton, daughter of President B

“He was born on third base and thought he hit a triple.” – Ann Richards on “W”

Ms. Richards was talking about “W,” but she was also describing the worst, most corrupt, part of today’s America: CRONY CAPITALISM.
Working hard and succeeding on merit is the myth we teach our children, but for some children, the reality is Crony Capitalism. They “succeeded” not from their own efforts, but from the source of sperm and egg.
And it’s not just about Bushes. Crony Capitalism is how Hillary Clinton got handed millions of dollars for delivering a series of short speeches to Wall Street, and it’s how a pisher like Chelsea Clinton, a woman with no commensurate work or life experience, manages to sit on multiple corporate Boards of Directors.  Did you know about this? Few do, for when proud parents Bill and Hillary gush about their daughter in campaign speeches, they somehow never mention her being on Boards of Directors.  All we hear of is… Chelsea’s child who was, yes, born on third base.
Look: Chelsea Clinton sits on the boards of the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, the School of American Ballet, the Africa Center, and the Weill Cornell Medical College. She is the Co-Chair of the Advisory Board of the “Of Many Institute” at NYU.
She’s also on the board of a conglomerate called IAC meaning she’s a Director of:
About.com
Ask.com
Vimeo
The Daily Beast (which covers mommy’s campaign)
Price Runner
…Among many other companies.

And Chelsea’s “experience”? As IAC notes in her corporate profile:
“Chelsea currently teaches at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and previously worked at McKinsey & Company and Avenue Capital.  As Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, Chelsea is a tireless advocate for the work of the Foundation.”
Then they list her college degrees.
Curiously missing from this rather skimpy resumé is any mention of Chelsea’s $600,000 a year no-show job with MSNBC.
Do the people who denounce Senator Bernie Sanders for having “no experience” hold a well-connected lightweight like Chelsea Clinton to the same standard?
As far as experience goes, I am willing to bet that…
MORE THAN HALF THE PEOPLE ON MY FACEBOOK FRIEND LIST HAVE SUPERIOR, MORE IMPRESSIVE, MORE ACCOMPLISHED WORK HISTORIES.
Are they on a laundry list of corporate Boards?

Is America a Meritocracy? 

Hardly.
Privileged Persons like Chelsea Clinton bear witness to the 
scandalous truth: We live in an aristocratic kleptocracy. Most people work their asses off for little reward (51% of us make less than $30k) while a few have it made for no justifiable reason. In exchange for attending just a few meetings per year and signing, here and there, a few documents they rarely even read, Board members pull in hundreds of thousands of dollars a year from each board they sit on. And “sit” is what they do for the rest of the time, by the pool, on a horse, or on a yacht, as the checks come rolling in…
 
Lolling Off Sardinia with Hedge Fund Hubby in a Much Needed Break From The Toils of CRONY CAPITALISM

Chelsea Lolling on a Yacht, Off Sardinia, with Her Hedge Fund Hubby During a Needed Break From The Tough Toils of CRONY CAPITALISM

The men and women of the New York City’s Sanitation Department, dedicated workers who toil day in, day out collecting the City’s trash… people who perform one of the most important and dangerous jobs in any city… make less money in a whole year of backbreaking labor than Hillary Clinton scooped up for 20 minutes of palaver in front of Goldman Sachs executives. When Hillary served as Secretary of State, Crony Capitalism went into over-drive as Bill Clinton’s speaking fees tripled, and their daughter suddenly – miraculously! – became the Board Room’s newest “must-have” accessory. To this day, Chelsea Clinton remains the fuzzy dice of Wall Street. Why? What’s she done in life to merit this?


Does anyone seriously believe Chelsea Clinton EARNED her way into these highly-lucrative sinecures?
Will the Sanitation workers see such a future for their own daughters?

Is This The America We Want or Need?
CRONY CAPITALISM is THE issue of our time.
All injustices of the system stem from this callous looting of The American Dream. 
Don’t let the very people who benefit from rigging the system masquerade as populists every four years to get your vote – even as they steal the future from your children and hand it to theirs on a silver salver, not as a reward for accomplishment or hard work but as a “royal” birthright.

Do not buy their over-the-top scare tactics about terrorism or about how your life will immediately collapse if they themselves cannot be johnny-on-the-spot to nominate “caring,” “progressive” Supreme Court Justices. Other than as a tool of manipulation, they don’t give a damn about the Court – and if you don’t think SCOTUS is a crony capitalism whore-house look into their “vacations” and their spouse’s vocations.
And aside from the court, what are we to expect from the corporatist Crony Capitalist’s choices to run The Fed? The Commerce Department? The FDA? The Treasury Department? The SEC? EPA? The Education Department? These appointments have a greater effect on our day-to-day life than the Supreme Court does. Crony Capitalism is what poisoned the water in Flint. 

Clearly, CRONY CAPITALISM is THE issue of our time.

Remember this when Hillary Clinton’s campaign talks about “breaking down economic barriers” or equality and opportunities for “the children.”  Does she mean YOUR children?  Will your children have people lining up to offer them no-show 6-figure income jobs? Even as their daddy rakes in a taxpayer funded pension of $450,000 a year?

Don’t elect anybody from any party who’s in it for the sake of building a dynasty – even if it’s a dynasty gussied up as a “foundation.”

Look for candidates who live by the same rules you live by. 

America is supposed to belong to all of us, not just the entitled scions of a few money-grubbing families who have no goddamn idea what life is really like in modern America.

Honduras… And Bigoted Voters

March 3, 2016

How many months is that I have been asking Clinton supporters about Honduras?
Not ONE knew anything about this – even while touting her experience as Secretary of State.
What I have heard is bigoted crap like this:
“I want someone with a womb in the White House at least one time before I die,” Mrs. DeBose said.
Experience? Here’s a victim of Mrs. Clinton’s experience:
“As is well known, she supported the coup d’etat in my country, which has sunk a very worthy and bleeding land further into abject poverty, violence, and militarism. She is part of those who consider only some lives to be legitimate, obviously not rebel women and women of color that live here and who do not, at least not all, fit in with imperial interests.”

Shame on all the low-information, prejudiced voters who let something as inane as body organs or religion be the deciding factor.
And you are so damn PROUD of it.  Proud of being shallow and a bigot…
You have ceded all moral authority over people who support a candidate only for being a white male xian. Or opposed Pres. Obama because the other candidate was white. You are cut from the same cloth. You are sexist. Just sexist as someone who will not vote for any woman.
That makes you hypocrites, plain and simple. 

If you are a member of the restricted TIME FOR A WOMAN clan, try learning about ISSUES not GONADS, as many other voters have done.
Look up Honduras and see the beast you support based only on gender.
(And, no, I do not support Sanders because… I want someone with a foreskin in the White House at least one time before I die.  See how you sound?)
