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.

The King of Bankruptcy

When greed dominates your thinking, you miss seeing the greater picture. The waves of misery your blindness creates will reach your shores and drown you. Comes the issue of low gas or no gas cars. California wants to develop the plans for and then build 50 mpg cars. Cars are a major source of air pollution. More miles to the gallon lead to less exhaust. 50 miles to the gallon an improvement; an electric car releases none.  

Trump doesn’t want California to develop a 50 mpg. car because his car manufacturing pals would have to invest in the design and then have to spend money producing it. He eschews such investment because it costs money. His vision stops at money in the pocket.

What is the consequence of his not improving the US car’s gas usage? 50 mpg cars, electric cars, hybrid cars will sell in other countries. People around the world who are concerned with climate change as well as wanting to save money on gas will buy cars using less gas or no gas and reject the US gas guzzlers. Trump’s restricting this improvement will put his gas guzzling car industries out of business.

This self-designated genius is every day taking our nation deeper into bankruptcy. The huge tax gift to the “uber” rich is a prime example. It leave no money for the rest of us. One needs to make things that other people will buy to create and sustain an economy. Trump’s punishing China with a tax on materials used to create solar collectors led to their increasing their cost beyond the ability of US solar people to buy. So we see the US solar business shrinking. Our country totters on the edge of a pit of bankruptcy and debt.

Who is “45” going to blame for this? He cannot see his mistakes. Vanity is blind.
