It's true. Democratic elites would much rather see McCain elected than a candidate who would stand up for the middle/upper middle class and risk upsetting the house of cards that works to their economic benefit while the neighborhoods around them go to hell, Blackwater moves in, neighbors move out and the winner takes all. It's a great game for "I Got Mine" pretentious, venial and greedy people -- a growing, twenty first century phenomenon that finds its voice in viral marketing and branding of everything from diet pills to presidential candidates, courtesy a few rabid blogs and online media outlets who are paid for by the status quo.
Thanks a lot, smug, arrogant Democrats who think the rhetoric of "hope" and "change" is gonna keep the greedy corporate elites from tossing you and/or your neighbors out of the house due to the subprime mortgage crisis and out of jobs due to the Great Labor Shortage Myth that is responsible for the disappearance of white collar jobs. Not that liberal elites ever cared about others. They are no different from the Reagan Republicans, as evinced by Barack Obama's keen affinity for Reagan, proof of the sham this two party system really is. Who is behind the fractured fairy tale of a Democratic Party on the ropes?
Income Equality? I think there should be income equality between ALL Federal Reserve Chairmen and their first floor maid. Alan Greenspan Thinks You Make Too Much Money. Alan Greenspan, with support from billionaires like Bill Gates, Al Gore, John Chambers and others who lobby to cut jobs and pay for Americans, are working hard to turn this country into a veritable half-way house for the third world while they tell citizens here to go to hell. The only thing worse than these predictable greedsters wanting to kick the collective white collar working ass to the curb are the liberal Democrats who support them with the "I GOT MINE" mentality responsible for killing off the Democratic party. Haven't you heard? Alan Greenspan says the only way to address the economic fallout he and his ilk put us into is for American white collar professionals is to EARN LESS MONEY despite the fact that costs are rising, layoffs are spiraling out of control and we are (loudly channel Sam Kinnison here) most likely FUCKING GOING INTO A DEPRESSION!!! Well guess what? All the viral "Yes We Can" youtube videos in the world can't bring change unless the two headed corporate shill, HilBama, gets out of the way and tells Congress to go fuck themselves and stand up for the majority in this country.
Note to candidates: HilBama, unless either one of you get's your shit together and just say "NO" to the corporate elites and the Indian lobby who loooooove so much killing off our jobs here, you can kiss this vote bah-byeeeeee...
Election Madness. In response to Howard Zinn's article "Election Madness" in the March issue of the Progressive, where exactly are any of these Democratic writers and journalists/columnists like Zinn, Chomsky, Klein, Thomm Hartmann, Amy Goodman etc. and other self-described Democratic blogger/columnist/book authors to talk about issues? While they occasionally promote the "populist" message while simultaneously aligning themselves with liberal corporate elites who quietly fund cultish, ANTI-POPULIST organizations who take their cues from Alan Greenspan, all of them, by omission, champion killing off our white collar jobs and cutting wages in order to keep importing cheap third world labor. We know the MSM won't touch real issues on this race to the bottom, but it's getting a little old, now, to see how the emergence of high profile, status quo puffed-up, online blogs like HuffPo brainwash an increasingly cultist crew of sheeple. If it weren't so transparent, it would be hilarious.
Enablers of the nuevo status quo message are funding organizations like
CAMPAIGN FOR AMERICA'S FUTUREhttp://www.ourfuture.org/
PEOPLE FOR THE AMERICAN WAYhttp://www.pfaw.org/
which boast a cast of characters including high profile actors. Many of their stated goals are indeed noteworthy and yet, like any effective marketing department in any other industry with a mission statement that reads "Grow Goddammit", these orgs appeal to potential subscribers on the basis of a shared ideology and rely upon viral marketing programs targeted to brand specific messages such as "we can sacrifice our jobs and paychecks because we already got ours so now we need to sacrifice you, poor and philanthropic minded plebe, while the Royal We all just one stock tip away from another tidy haul..."
These orgs are staffed/supported by liberal elites or the "I Got Mine Circuit" who support outsourcing/insourcing jobs. Neither website touches the problem of white collar layoffs and both orgs have zero tolerance for anyone who dares question who the Grand Poohbahs are that pave the way in the Senate and Congress to promote the mass exodus of white collar jobs. Why is this? Neither one of the above organizations and the sycophants who subscribe to them represent the millions of educated, white collar citizens who are continuing to lose jobs and take home dwindling paychecks. Who is behind these Nuevo "shadow organizations" that are aiding the corporate welfare politicians and executives backed by executive politico cultists who represent the status quo? Whatsmore, these "liberal" and self-described progressive writers involved with organizations like the ones above deplore the masses just as much the corporate elites that funnel funds/opportunities their way. Why? Scarcity of resources. If everybody had a good job with good pay, nobody would feel desperate enough to want to read their gratuitous pandering. Should we protest? Absolutely. But against who? (Sorry, but I don't find anything "progressive" about an insider cult mentality of perfumed parlor snakes going around acting like it's cool to tell everybody else to fuck off. )
Note, Zinn, Chomsky, Klein (Naomi, Joe, it seems all Kleins are on the corporate welfare dole) and any of the above writers and their fans conveniently direct the masses against the political puppet candidates owned by the corporations. Instead of naming names of the real tyrants -- the corporate elites who don't want the middle class anywhere near their companies as they can outsource those jobs to the poor and less educated, third world people for a fraction of the pay ---, these writers continue to create the illusion that there is an "alternative" to the big, bad, MSM when they in fact pine for the same crumbs at this ham-fisted table.
Short of Hillary or Obama choosing Nader for a VP running mate, more than ever, Democrats MUST finally get their sh&# together and support the ONLY candidate now speaking up in support of the very issues that are killing off the middle/upper middle classes here.
Today, Ralph Nader announced on Meet the Press he is going to run for President. Check out his website and see where he stands on the issues compared to the two-headed corporate shill, HilBama.
A Nader 2008 presidential run, at the very least, is what is in order to nudge liberal Democrats to their senses to unify the party, NOT by going rabid and viral with empty, feel good rhetoric against fellow Dems but by finally realizing that American white collar citizens can no longer be offered up as the sacrificial cow to third world. If we don't collectively put our own house in order, what does this say about the country and the jerks who run it and support it? Oh wait. I just answered that.
