Thought for the Night

We probably would have had money to pay for health insurance, a college education, and intercity high speed rail for everyone and their dog twice over if we hadn't flushed it all down two toilets, one called Iraq and the other called Afghanistan. And the real winners over those bottomless pits are Iran and a lot of defense contractors and their shareholders. Ship another load of poor kids over there to fight for the national testosterone and to keep the shareholders getting those dividend checks.

And meanwhile, a lot of thieves who robbed the world into bankruptcy enjoy their loot while politicians and press on their payroll continue to sing their praises. Politicians and diplomats ponder how to rescue banks and their shareholders while telling the inhabitants of affected countries to go fuck themselves. Our rulers try to persuade us that a 9 to 10% official unemployment rate (a rate that has brought down governments and started wars) is no big deal, and that the largest population of long term unemployed since the Great Depression are all just a bunch of lazy shits, and we're cutting them off to teach them a lesson!

Our Betters continue to get rich by forcing honest people into bankruptcy, making them helpless to aid their families in time of need.

I'm damn mad!

The world's capitalists and all the governments that work for them can all go fuck themselves!

Capitalism is like one of those nightmarish parasites in scifi that grows into the entire nervous system of the host so that removing it would likely kill the host.

I simply don't understand how capitalism ever came to be associated with a religion which had its beginnings in everyone holding everything in common.
