Wall Street Bailout and the Awakening Class Conciousness

Regardless of the necessity for a Wall Street bailout (it does appear to be necessary at this point) there is a growing anger among the people. This anger is the beginning of an awakening of a class consciousness. The ownership society is finally realizing the truth. The emperor’s clothes (years of slick advertising and corporate propaganda) have suddenly disappeared before the eyes of the people. They now know that they have been fooled into believing that they are somehow part of the investment class. It is now painfully apparent to millions, that their job has all along been to provide the fuel (money) for the engine of Wall Street. The genie is out of the bottle and the truth is slapping them in the face. Their servitude to the ruling class lies before their feet like the steaming pile of shit that it is.

Anger at bailout turns on fat salaries for Wall Street execs

WASHINGTON — Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office has heard from about 50,000 constituents since Congress began considering a financial rescue plan about a week ago — and "only one of a thousand supports it — whatever it is," the California Democrat said.

Lawmakers from both parties reported similar confusion and concern among constituents as they spent their Saturday painstakingly, and sometimes painfully, trying to craft a still-elusive compromise package. Read entire article here.

Americans are Dumb!

For most of my life, I have tried to give my fellow citizens the benefit of the doubt. I made a conscious or unconscious excuse for everything about them which made me feel uncomfortable. I rationalized their behavior. I saw them as vessels that were half full rather than half empty. Americans, I would say are good people at heart and have been just led astray by the forces of evil and greed. They are just hapless souls in a sea of exploitation and thus not entirely responsible for their actions.

I say this no more. The average shopping mall fixated, SUV driving, god fearing American is just plain dumb. Yes, they are outstandingly ignorant and in many cases proud of it. Their minds have become solidified by inactivity, their cognitive functions and conscious minds have been altered permanently by the exposure to years of marketing and propaganda. Many are illiterate or semi-literate with no knowledge of history, geography, mathematics, or even their own government. They think in reactive patterns which reinforces the twisted simplified world view spooned into their brains by religious perverts, money grubbing corporations and lying politicians.

Should we scratch our heads and wonder why, when those of us with active frontal lobes see national polls that indicate that nearly half of our nation supports the McSame/Pain campaign? No, we should expect the worst. It is sad to say, but our nation is populated with beings whose attention span can be measured in seconds and for the most part don’t want to get involved in the “critical thinking and information gathering” necessary for the success of a modern democracy.

So how do we react when 46 percent of the population has their heads so far up their asses, that they think a 72 year old lying piece of shit would be a good president? And this is after 8 years of an idiot in the White House.

If McSame/Pain wins the election, I plan to seek political asylum in whatever country will take an old fat white guy. Remember just because it doesn’t make sense, doesn’t mean it won’t happen. Dumb asses do dumb ass things – take George Bush – please?

If John McCain Wins

If John McCain wins the presidency, all is lost for America - and possibly the planet. With the looming crisis of global warming (another vast pressing and almost untouched issue in American politics), there are distinct possibilities of a future filled with climatic changes on a scale that would fundamentally alter the evolution of our species.

We are in a race that we may have already lost - religion, especially Christianity may be ultimately responsible - having spawned the dark ages, thus setting science and the development of technology back by several hundred years. Future historians will be able to more accurately judge exactly the cause for our undoing - that is of course, if there are future historians.

Only our technology will give us a chance at saving our planet. If we miss technological milestones by only a year - all will be lost. The latest scientific predictions talk about the possibility of the beginning of a climate not seen for some 55 million years!

So yes we in America, we in the world, could use some non-corporate bought and sold leadership. The future of our children and our children's children depend on it. There is no time for anything less.

Let's hope the next generation will not forever have the question on their lips, "Why did they do nothing to stop this?" "Why were they so stupid, so shortsighted, and so selfish?"
