Give the people what they want.
America’s streets are, at long-last, being invaded,
seized, alas occupied - by, can you believe it... White
folks - who’ve just had that 2:37 in the AM wake-your-ass-up
call; yes, either we all stand together... or we’ll all
swing together. Believe
it, this country’s “Everyday people” who sing-a-simple-ass
song have been compelled to stand-up and speak-out... finally.
Power to the people...
Butchers, bakers and even college educated computer-chip
makers seem to have heard the call, they’re coming to an
hard-realization, an era-enlightenment; they too constitute
the little people. The 99% of us who get-up and go
to work everyday, some from can’t see to can’t see -
and all this hard work, its not to thrive, but to merely
survive... 1 maybe 2 paychecks from “Hit the road Jack
And as far as Wall Street sees it, 99% of Americans...
well, they’re expendable.
And who are the fat-rats who’ve betrayed “we, the people?”
It be the top-tier, the top 1% who’ve apparently little,
if any loyalty to a - and this is critical - a darkening
America. Nor will they adhere to any common rules of
financial decency. Instead, these elitists have manipulated
the rules of fair trade and commerce, hand-crafting an economic
environment of unbridled, unchecked, cutthroat capitalism.
Greed gone wild.
Who’s to say where this “hi n’ all-so-mighty” mentality
stems from? Perhaps from a number of sources; a historical
sense-of privilege, a false-sense of overall human superiority,
or flip-it, feelings of obvious inferiority. Nevertheless,
America’s aristocrats have purchased “for sale” politicians,
who’ve in turn done what they were instructed to do - sabotage
the US economic system in order to fatten the already fat
pockets of Rush Limbaugh obese fat-cats.
who has the Gold, regardless of how the wealth / power was
amassed... makes the rules. Believe it baby - that’s the
rich White American man’s Way... all that glitters is Gold.
Yes, even atop the Manhattan skyscraper, on the 187th
floor, or behind Piranha-stocked moats and gun-turret topped
electrified walls surrounding lily-White communes... it’s
all about livin’ a life full of nothin’ but bitchs n’ money.
Now, in-order to understand where this bleached-out
Tony Montana “the world is mine” mentality may be rooted,
look to no other then aspiring American Aristocrat Mitt
Romney - the flexible, bend-over-able “Plastic Man”
who’s rightfully catching hell because, yes, he does belong
to a... religious “cult,” Mormonism, - even in the
eyes his holier-then-thou bible-totin’ religious Rednecks
on the “Far-Out Right” - yet that’s neither here nor there.
Here’s where the flip-flop, flim-flam man is on-the-money,
as he recently summed-up the American global perspective
of his country club comrade’s “rightful place.” "This
century must be an American century. In an American century,
America has the strongest economy and the strongest military
in the world," Romney says. "God did not create
this country to be a nation of followers. America is not
destined to be one of several equally balanced global powers.
America must lead the world, or someone else will.”
There! That mindset is what’s wrong with America -
such a burning desire to lead, to dominate... dominate by
any manipulative, diabolical means required. The
Military / industrial / prison / pharmaceutical / energy
/ tech / finance complex... run-amok. What we’ve got
here is 21st century Imperialism - instead of holding hands
with the inhabitants of the world and singing “It’s A Small
Clearly when Mitt and the Mormon Tabernacle choir sing,
“He’s got the Whole World in His Hands” they don’t mean
the Big “G” up in the sky’s hand... they mean their own
Mitt is fronting America’s self-proclaimed nobility,
the landed-class, well-above gentry, but slightly below
royalty - these are the greedy-ass bastards who’ve pulled
the rug from beneath “real Americans,” the patriots protesting
in America’s streets. Those people pushed there by the unscrupulous
businessmen Romney “fronts” - who at the end of the day
- seek to exploit economically all the semi-slaves on all-sides
of the political spectrum, and who hope to see worker-ants
on the Right at the throats of Worker-bees on the
When Romney speaks of “global domination” he means
financially first n’ foremost, followed by his version
of American cultural being exported to the four-corners
of the globe - forcing, via the barrel of a gun, all-the-world
to assimilate and accommodate his twisted version of the
American way of Life.
“Money is God, and God is money.”
Here, in the ol’ US of A, moo-lah is everything, and
you do anything to have more of it. You can never, ever
have too much cold-cash. Please note GE, General Electric,
pulled every accounting trick in the book - in order to
make 14.2 billion in profits last year... and not pay a
red-nickle on it in taxes.
Their high class peers applauded them, while the stock-holding
citizens could care less if their hard earned monies are
invested in traitorous operations like GE, Whirlpool and
countless other US business - who’ve moved tens-of-thousands
of “build-a-dream-on” head-of-the-household 45 hours-a-week
j-o-b-s to China, Mexico... Pluto - in some calculated cutthroat
effort to increase their profit margins.
Just make mo’ money baby.
Now here, wait a minute. Can I make it funky? General
Electrics’ Chief Executive, Jeffrey Immelt, is one
of President Obama’s advisers for U.S. job creation...
And wait; can I get down one-more-time? Tell me, can
Herman Cain, yes the House Negro who sings ol’ southern
serenades to the Daughters of the Confederacy crowds
- who sits on various and numerous multinational
corporate boards, as window dressin’, where he’s paid -
about $400,000 a year to rubber-stamp the exodus of all
those jobs - as he declares that US citizens who don’t have
a job, or can’t attain the economic heights they seek, can’t
seem to ever achieve the levels of financial security and
stability they long for - we’ve no one to blame but ourselves.
As Cain and his wealthy frat-brothers eliminate the
societal tools needed to build an American Dream, they
arrogantly taunt the masses, tell us to get-up off our lazy
asses and work as hard as they do. Yeah right, that’s another
one of those “don’t piss down my back and tell me it’s spring
The people gathering across America recognize who’s
vying for the Oval Office and sadly who’s advising
this current President - they understand the fox is in the
hen-house. As a matter of fact, the Little Red Roster let
him in the front door. The game is fixed, rigged, we’re
set up to fail, born to lose.
Immelt, while having the ear of Obama - is no friend
to the working man n’ woman. He’s wed to the interest of
individuals who despise Organized labor and worker
solidarity - he’s apart of the base corporate element who’d
like to break the backbone of America’s working-class and
middle-class, in-order to maximize Wall Street’s profits
- and they predominate and dominate the US political scene.
And you can’t spit in this present White House without
hitting one just like Immelt.
With allies fighting for the common folk like Immelt...
who needs enemies like Eric Cantor, the Republican TEA Party
Grand Pooh-Pah who has already displayed his arrogance and
disconnection by branding the folks amassing in this country’s
major metropolises. “I, for one, am increasingly concerned
about the growing mobs occupying Wall Street and the other
cities across the country,” Cantor said. “Believe it or
not, some in this town have actually condoned the pitting
of Americans against Americans.”
Next Cantor, who at the whim of his master’s -The Koch
brothers - elitists who fly no flag, harbor no loyalty
towards this country’s workers - this political prostitute
and his fellow congressman will call for the folks in the
streets, the “mob” members to be barred from the streets,
branded on their foreheads for easy identification, if not
the out right extermination.
This is the line in the sand being drawn, right here
before our eyes. The riff-raft... the unwashed masses, you
n’ I, us - the 95%, or 98% deliberately pitted against America’s
self-anointed royalty... the rich, who by mere coincidence,
just happen to be white males, who find themselves atop
