They Want to Take It All

The rich aren’t Americans. They live in Richville, Anywhere. They travel in their nifty little planes or yachts or chauffeur driven sports cars to homes on mountain tops or shores. Servants cook and clean and baby sit for them. They barely notice the cost.
How did they get to be so wealthy and how do they maintain it? There is a history of theft. It started with slavery in the US after chasing and killing the natives. It went on from there and has never stopped. For example, they used near-to-slave Chinese labor to build a railroad across the US. Today, the US has wars all over the world. The US propaganda machine tells us that the US is trying to bring democracy to other lands by getting rid of their evil leaders. This do-good scheme is a pretense to get our tax money.
We are funding attacking foreign leaders and nations with tax money which drops to zero. Forget the lies folks. People in the war industry make a lot of money which pays for their extravagant lives. They produce and we pay for their war toys. They steal the natural resources from the attacked nations and now are coming to steal from you.
The Corona Virus set us up for mega theft. With businesses and schools closed everywhere, no money coming in to pay rent and mortgage, to pay workers during closure. Citizens are in increasingly victimized positions. Under the press of Covid 19, Congress gave the needy, that’s us, a Care package which we were happy to hear about. But no, forget your expectations. Its trillion plus went to mega corporations including holiday ships and air lines, next to nothing to small shop owners and schools and hospitals; and closed restaurants to pay their waiters, and have something to start again when the virus is less virulent or medically controlled.
What will we the common people have then? Some say we should be hopeful, But hope for change coming from the same governing people is uncalled for. They have already shown their hand. The government which gave our money to the wealthiest, has nothing left for us. Shops will remain closed until the rich ones buy what they like. Care money given to them covers the purchase price. Do the rich feel bad about their take-over? They are like horses wearing blinders to keep from getting frightened by approaching cars. The rich ones have different kinds of blinders. Their eyes are on the money.
We need to act as a group. all of us together, regardless of any kind of subdivision. Letters and calls have no power. We need to get out on the street. Cops will arrest some until they join us as another underclass. We need to start a third party or more. The Democrats and Republicans call each other names and then vote for the same betrayal We need to stop being pleased with crumbs as AOC said before she voted (hand raised no official count to be noted and announced) to give our money to the rich. Betsy DeVos wants to close all public schools and set up Christian schools and charters. We need to reject crumbs and to stop worshiping the rich. They are thieves whose hands are in our pockets. Do not fall for our so-called impoverished government. Money can be printed. Vote for 3rd party candidates (or a forth or fifth… who says two is the right number?) Choose those who agree with you about a need for public care. Vote for someone whose behavior supports their words. Nothing less . See what they did before they ran for office. Do not fall for lies again.

Let Them Eat Cake

Marie-Antoinette, when confronted by the starving French who asked for bread said “let them eat cake.”. She is with us today. The rich are taking more and more of our tax money, promising us cake some day if we just wait long enough.


Our private hospitals, many of them closed to make apartments for the rich, are set up to bring in the bucks. As a result, they do not buy equipment for unexpected disasters like the Corona virus. Masks and ventilators are too few and hospitals are understaffed. Too many virus patients with too few nurses lead to triaging care. Staff has to choose who will be treated and who will not and die from a lack of care. Nurses and doctors get sick as well because of missing protective equipment like having to wear the now infected mask for a week. The Corona virus fills the air and brings them down.


Factory workers are regarded as replaceable and unimportant. In a country run by the super rich, all labor is being dumped into that category. Meat packers are removed from Corona contaminated.factories which then are closed. The disease spreads in the factory because workers lack protective gear. When virus infected pork and beef and chicken processing plants are closed, animals are not slaughtered to be sold and eaten. President Trump saw the coming meat shortage and demanded workers go back to work, still unprotected. He said that those who stay home will not get unemployment. It is a choose your kind of death situation.


Farmers cannot sell produce to people who lack money. The government which claims to be insolvent forces farmers to chop up their vegetables growing in the field and then plow them under. Note that our government never runs out of money for planes and bombs and war. Why doesn’t it pay the farmers for what they grow and distribute it to the hungry folk whose line stretches for miles waiting for a bag of groceries? There is no profit in harvesting crops and feeding the impoverished. Capitalism is not attracted to performing acts of charity.


What of the homeless people living in subway stations? The local government kicks them out and forgets them. Those on the street are treated no better. People in charge of human disaster do not think of using empty hotel rooms. In a time of ever increasing difference between rich and poor, the poor become invisible.


We live in a capitalist society. Making a profit is it’s goal. Our so-called liberals in Congress make speeches about how sad they feel about the homeless, how upset they are about children whose public schools are overcrowded and understaffed. These same officials give huge amounts of our tax money to corporations and to the super rich. They give money to organizations that pay no taxes.


Having recently given trillions to them, our country will be unable to serve the rest of us for generations And still these elected official sell-outs speak to win our hearts. They have an ability to emote. Most congressional people can do this unless they play the opposite role and attack the needy as parasites (a la Mitch McConnell and Trump).


We vote for these people. We are like young children who are too frightened of abandonment and death to think that our parents do not care for us. There are almost no honest people in our governing body. Nancy Pelosi who is 100 million dollars rich, instead of offering Medicare to Covid sufferers, wants to give them Cobra which covers the cost of insurance while they are unemployed, for a fee of course. She rescues an industry which gives the insured little and takes a lot. Metaphorically speaking, Pelosi’s bread is buttered on the same side.


Do you believe that Republicans and Democrats are different? Look at how they vote. People like Bernie Sanders wail about what is being done to the poor and then vote to give tax money to the rich. Sanders is like a clown that distracts the audience from workers sweeping up horse shit at the circus.
Marie-Antoinette said “Let them eat cake.” when the impoverished French demanded bread. We are all waiting for that illusory cake instead of going on strike to demand a living wage, health care and retirement benefits. Let them know that we are hungry for real food in return for a life of real work.

Earth Day

                US and much of the world is on the edge of a great disaster pertaining to having enough to eat. Fear of the Corona virus where some have already caught it, has closed plants whose workers process, package and send chicken and pork to city markets. With processing missing, huge numbers of pigs and chicken are killed on the farm, and often dumped on the steps of the closed corporations. Eggs are pierced so no chickens are born. The absence of food for buyers will soon be known. They will not be able to order it delivered.    

Our factory farm industry first underpaid farmers who owned their farms which turned them into slaves who work to keep their farm going; then used immigrant labor the corporation paid even less until it was cheaper to import what was grown by impoverished farmers in another country. But now Russia, our wheat source is refusing to send the US wheat. They are keeping it for themselves. Other countries are bound to follow. US fish is mostly imported by mega stores from countries where the pay is low and the quality of handling produce lower. Our government now turns away ships due to the Corona virus so no more fish can be delivered.

What will hungry citizens do aside from rioting in the streets? The governing politicians will likely send the police to quiet and crush the crowd. What can people do about such scarcity? A terrible and wonderful possibility lies before us. Look at the clean air and clear water, at the animals now out of hiding enjoying the living world that we are not filling with noise and danger.

What if we stop going to ‘Big’ stores to buy cheap food? What if we form coops to create and manufacture what we need; farms to grow what we want to eat? There are no outside investors sopping up the profit and paying us starvation wages. Coop members equally divide the many businesses,’ incomes. Farmers who are reasonably paid like the rest of us, compost and till the soil so that the food is nutritious. Coop members renounce the capitalistic dream that they will one day be rich like the one percent.

We can live in harmony with nature, stop extracting oil and gas. Stop removing mountain tops for coal and polluting downhill water. No more black lung disease. We can use solar collectors and windmills and tidal energy. We build houses together a la President Jimmy Carter. We use natural products to maintain health. We  create communities in which everyone is known. Friendly greeting is the rule.

We can give up living in isolation and be happy. This is my dream, my wish, my reality.

Time’s Up

Now the Republicans have voted to take it all away. Sure, they did it little by little before but now they want it all. Why do they need it since they already own what they want to buy? It has nothing to do with growing the economy since there will be zero trickle down. Instead it will destroy the economy when the middle class can purchase little or nothing.They want to wear a crown.  How did we get into creating royalty, people born to a class we are supposed to serve and worship? True they’ll have the castle on the hill and we will live in small houses or in one large construction divided up by families. 

 You can look at it from a positive side. We can become a group instead of solitary individuals entranced by the shallow TV dramas or newscasts touting war, watched alone or with spouse and child.What are we going to do about our relatively impoverished situation? We need to  learn how to meet our needs when the social system fails. If we run out of food, the supermarket  is sold out and we don’t have money to pay for their stuff. We can hate and rob our neighbors for having what we lack. Thinking and doing this enforces our true poverty.

The newly created royals are for out hating each other. They work to turn us against each other, white against black against gay against Latino against trans. Getting us to blame each other keeps them safe. The royals are frightened of the people impoverished by their the self-created royal’s theft. Even slave masters slept with a gun beneath their pillow. It wasn’t enough to separate people speaking the same language, to keep them from learning to read and consider, work them from dark to dark. It wasn’t enough to insist they all came here on slave ships and had no skills despite the growing evidence that black sailed and inhabited the world a thousand years before the mythic Christ (look at the work of Ivan Van Sertima and David Imhotep) .It wasn’t enough to lie about black history so that the current “owners” can claim divine right.

We need to think of ourselves as a loving population, to figure out how to grow food, to create natural medications from herbs and plants, to share our skills, to trade services and goods. We need to store the food we grow. We need to turn away from the criminal or worthless classification passed down from the rich. We need to create a life we can enjoy with friendship and mutual support as its basis.

I found this written in my computer. Was this written by me or dictated by my muse or another person? Thanks to the heart/mind that created it.. May we all follow its advice, live and be well.

The DNC Wants to Lose the Presidency

The DNC does not want to win the presidential election. That is why they are doing everything to stop Bernie Sanders from winning, the one candidate who is a lifelong liberal who wants free colleges, Medicare for all, money spent on social goods and justice, a man who wants to get out of the US endless wars around the globe, a Jew!  

They want to run people who are on the side of the wealthy, who regardless of what they say (mostly lies) or avoiding the issues of a real national income and universal voting, of affordable education and medical care and …. These people will be totally be rejected by the poor, most blacks and browns, most people with an un-payable college debt, most people with health issues not covered due to preexisting conditions and co pays and deductions. These unpopular candidates, one of which will be chosen to run for president in place of the only popular candidate, will drive people into non-voting or re-electing Trump as an act of rage.

Recognize that this herd of millionaires and billionaires or hoped-for millionaires who are running the election, will be financially rewarded if Trump is elected and will lose if it is Bernie. There  it is folks. Those rich folk who are running things are not there for most of us

They cry, they shriek he cannot win. But he is already winning now. Their local stooge for blacks at the DNC says the blacks will not vote for Bernie but they are already moving  towards him and what he offers. They say he is too old but plenty of them are quite old and showing it. They point to his recent heart attack. But what about our current president’s time in a hospital, his overweight, his funny hand held at an angle. What about his heart?

So why do they not want this man, this winner to run for them. It is very obvious if you allow yourself to see which DNC Democrats are on the corporate payroll. They are paid via Citizen’s United and every other way to put money in their hands  if they do what corporations wants. And what they want and need the most at this time is war.

Bernie does not want war. The corporations want war until the whole world goes up in flames from global warming, until there is not another place to bomb. If Bernie wins there will be a huge fight in congress. He and the few anti war people against the rest. But at least and for the first time, the differences will be mentioned. This Centrist man, a caring human being is only standing for what most of the world wants: free schooling, free health care, air to breathe and food to eat, parks that are surviving not full of dead trees and dying animals. A beautiful place.

But in the United States, place where only prisons are our number one job, our tax money pays for tanks and bombs and missiles. The DNC is afraid Bernie will win and their corporate filled Christmas stocking will be empty. The DNC recently thought of a new way to stop him. It added the requirement that the candidate be a good Democrat.

Snap your fingers he’s out of the race.

And then, all the needy people will not bother to vote. Not any other Democrat will win. We get Trump again which secretly fill all the DNC wishes. More war. More money to the banks. Fewer  social services. The one percent takes over. People die of illness that could be cured if there is medicine to treat them. Democracy dies.

War Makes Money

Peace does not come from war. Look at the loss to our country in terms of life lost and war debt. But it is not a debt for those who manufacture the killing stuff. War is a money maker for investors who create and sell fighting materials. Our first leaders stole land from the Indians and then enslaved the blacks. The US has a history of terror and takeover.

Currently, investors are frothing at the mouth over the next invasion. Why are we in Afghanistan? Nobody knows except those who are in it for the money. War seems to be the main US main occupation. The US government sent pallets of cash, more than 4 billion dollars to Baghdad. Where did the money go? Nobody knows. War goes on without purpose except to make money for the few.

When the guns and cars and tanks and missiles and bullets and overpriced toiletries and over priced medications and overpriced everything are destroyed, the corporations are only too happy to send a new supply. Those on the base, often get rid of stuff that is not damaged. They dump cars and tanks in the desert and announce their loss. There must be “kick backs” for those announcing these phony losses.

Many of our US wars go on without meaning or purpose. How do we get another nation to pick up guns in self-defense to keeps our military businesses operating? One way practiced by “45” is breaking agreements and alliances with international friends. They say, a man is as good as his word. He breaks his word. He is unreliable and can turn on you. Friend turns into enemy.

Another way to drag your victim into the froth of war is to not follow the rules of war. The rules of law divide what solders can do to other soldiers from what they can do to civilians. Rules of war say you cannot bomb schools and hospitals and farms and churches and wedding parties and water purification plants, etc. Bombed civilians grow outraged and frightened which drives them take money used for social purposes and turn it into weapons.  

Trump, a megalomaniac got rid of all his war experts, people employed by the government for years. Those not fired, quit. There is no one left to give a contrary opinion. He does what his impulses tell him to do manufacturing reasons as he goes. The latest breaking the rules of war was his assassinating General Soleimani, a military man in Iran, a country we are not fighting. The fact that Trump’s fans call Soleimani a “bad man” does not make killing him just or legal. Worse than that, it brings anarchy into the world. With the US as a model, it is OK now to kill anyone that stands in your way for almost any reason. We don’t like our vulnerability and want it to stop. Do you think it won’t come here? How do we return to sanity and peace?
