Now that Halloween is behind us, the onslaught of holiday puke and poison starts to quickly bright red and green down the throats of the unsuspecting. Shimmers of gold and silver line the pockets of the Wall Street bankers and top CEO’s as corporate reports have concluded and the money allocated to the collapse over the next year can get divided up among the wealthy. The poor are left to camping in public parks and protesting the decline of the world economy as they watch the rich throw lavish parties and sip on the finest champagne and lap the most expensive caviar and delicacies. The sky is falling! The sky is falling! So where is the truth in the lame stream media and the outliers of the fringe society? Who reports on the truth and decline of the American politics? No one. Well, very few. It just doesn’t seem to really matter.
We know that the great shall fall and no one can display that better these days than GOP former front-runner Herman Cain. Oh how the mighty will stick their willy in the face of … well, we don’t have all of the names yet. It may not have been that bad, but the fact remains that skeletons at Halloween are worse than daemons during Hanukkah. No matter your beliefs, the political exalted find their way to the dredges of society eventually. If you want to be a politician (man or woman) you need to stay in touch with the common man, but not actually touch the common man or say anything that might think them to believe that you would want to touch them in any inappropriate way. You could always blame the memory loss amnesia diagnosis “I cannot recall” statement – which seems to work better than the “I don’t know what you’re talking about” or “What the F#$% are you talking about?” statements. The damage of innocent ignorance seems to do more than the admission of slighted guilt (“I did not have sexual relations with…”). If history in politics is any indicator, Herman Cain might as well go back to shoveling cardboard pizza to gas station patrons and hope he doesn’t get blamed for causing gastrointestinal disease for toxic ‘food’.
And yes… Greece! The cradle of Democracy – the white-robed theologians and scholars who praised many Gods – the lovers of gay men and women – the decadent and morally questionable society that… oh, who were we talking about? That’s right… Greece. So they agree to a deal that leads to the biggest rally in stock in years and then think about it over the weekend. Hmmm, maybe not such a good idea? Maybe we could just stop paying our bills and deal with this stuff on our own without anyone telling them what to do and how to do it? Sounds good to us. Bankrupt yourself to start over. If you were doing it yourself, what would you do? Pay your bills and eat dirt or cut your losses and start over? Millions of American have had to make this choice. Many more are still trying to struggle with how they should proceed. Only time will tell and only those making the decisions know the truth that affects them.
It seems that history will look back a George W Bush and remember him as the president who started a war on false pretenses and then gave away enough American money to build a new nation – if they could only find it. We all know the false pretenses, it has become part of the nation speech for the “Axis of Evil” and “Weapons of Mass Destruction“. Sure, by now we have almost forgotten about the war that brought the end of Saddam Hussein and the eminent threat of cold war, toxic chemical genocide and mass murder of those who are unlike everyone else. It also seems that the Pentagon has released some information from 2004 that… well… might be a little embarrassing. In a covert operation to buy Iraq, the US Government loaded C-130 transport carries packed with shrink-wrapped $100 bills and sent them on a journey to buy off anyone who opposed the Bush Administration. Funny part is, no one can find or knows what happened to the money…. over 6.6 BILLION of it!
POOF! Gone! Nobody knows what happened to it or where it might have gone. The American taxpayers are required to keep records of what they take in and spend, but the Federal Government can ‘lose’ several billion dollars and not have to account for it. BULLSHIT! That’s right. Bullshit! How do you lose a cargo plane full of money? How do you ‘misplace’ billions and not have to account for it even 7 years later? This is not the first time and we’re sure it won’t be the last. We just wan tot know where the money went… and why? The USA has dumped billions of dollars in cash into countries for years to ‘build’ relationships – we can all see how well that has worked out.
Here’s an idea… stop giving money to other countries and start spending it on your own country. If you think we have a problem in our own country, how can spending billion on other countries make our lives better. In an economy that has been collapsing for years with virtually no end in sight (except for the power pushers who say everything is good). If you’re income is less than $150,000 a year – you’re feeling the pinch. If your income is less than $50,000 a year – it is impossible to keep living without eating up your savings or living paycheck to paycheck. If your income is less than $25,000 a year – you probably have roommates and live like a commune fraternity troop. If you’re income is less than $12,000 you probably are on welfare, medicaid and SSI while you visit the free clinic and local food pantry to keep your belly full and meth lab going.
