Im sure that when history looks back on this period, it will recognise the largest, most grandiose rape, pillaging and theft from the average citizen by the elite of the right-wing state there has ever been.
There is an infinite pot of money for the few, provided by the masses who will end up with nothing.
Its time to recognise, that those who have been touting freedom and democracy, have delivered us to unmerciful debt slavery and fascist communism.
It must piss off the wingers so much that they have been utterly duped, that they must maintain the charade at all costs to nullify the feeling of utter betrayal by their puppet masters.
It really is time to laugh. Things might be bad, but we knew there were going to be bad consequences of the actions we were forced to undertake. Thats why the entire history of PO has been filled with thread after thread for the last 8 years warning of the catastrophe of the right-wing agenda.
"Our president is lying to us in order to start a war".....
"Its all about the Oil...oily....oil..."
It goes on and on. We all know who rallied against the ignorant destruction of the western world and sought to make the world a better place - just as we all know who inadvertantly rallied for the ignorant destruction of the west in order to selfishly line their own pockets with gold.
Now here we are, all of us are utterly fucked in some way or another, but at least take some comfort in the fact that this feeling of utterly fucked doesn't come with the shame of being so utterly utterly on the wrong side of every issue.
It is poetic justice that GM, Chrysler, Ford have been killed by the oil lobby, fundies, and global warming sceptics.
I for one am glad of this. This auto industry problem sums it up perfectly. It may be true that GM, Chrystler, Ford have passed their natural life expectancy, BUT it is clearly showing that those on the right are quite happy to screw over, pillage and rape their own fellow Americans for a tiny amount of short term self gain - when all that is needed is nothing more than chump-change.
For them, money is all that matters, - even the chump change is worth more than 1 million FELLOW Americans being handed a lifeline - keeping thier jobs, their families, thier homes, their dignity, their humanity - INTACT for a short while while the problem is resolved.
For the right, the money is more important than a million FELLOW Americans - Then they'll turn around and tell them that Jesus loves them!
With that in mind, I cant say this economic disaster is such a bad thing. Perhaps it would be good, if everyone was wiped out, civilization went back 50 years, and a new mould was cast to build society.
- Because what has come to pass, is nothing but hoards of scavangers feeding off their own sick and dying.
