The Supreme Common linking children, corporations, The Roman Catholic Church, NT school bus and Presidents
“There is more honor and magnanimity in correcting, than persevering in an error.” –Thomas Jefferson, so resounded the UVa 1500 vying against Board of Visitors in favor of reinstating President Teresa Sullivan. And where is Danny Goggin when the Roman Catholic Church needs harmony with “Nuns on a bus?” The Vatican charged by Peter’s superior, “…when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me:” is in denial, decline and self-crucifixion.
When the powerful crave Almighty control over women, children, elderly, disenfranchised middle, low and no income, what is the supreme common that hotlinks us all? Is it the taxes of the educated in Blue states paying for the government assistance programs most needed and resisted in Red States? Is it California, weekend invaded by billionaires caucusing to snort Koch brothers’ lines of Citizens United?
If Americans do not Occupy some ‘simple and common sense rules’ that ‘correct rather than preserve the error’ of self-serving Banksta speculative risks; if we do not allow Obama/Volcker to foreclose on those who foreclosed American Dream; if we tea sip while behemoth international corporations reward accelerating salaries and gross bonuses — then HBO is correct, America is not the greatest country in the world anymore.
Greatness is “Justice for All” character, not hedge funds for Bain few. Greatness is not found in showering football coaches emulating priests with minors, nor religiously protected pedophiles. Greatness is reflected in the company we keep and the humanity we radiate.
Character was out-ted at UVa when internal emails revealing presidential coup, galvanized students, faculty and Charlottesville community in backlash against merging billionaire and Visitors’ boards, forcing chaffed Governor McDonnell, chafed from vaginal probes, to threaten dismissal should Visitors fail to resolve upheaval.
The allegedly out of sync with needs of a Wall Street damaged 21st century economy UVa President Sullivan attended “1776” last Saturday, where she, cast and Jefferson were honored with a standing ovation.
Since WWII public support for education and teachers has waned while corporate Blob expands its suffocating death grip on media, communications, Pentagon, Supreme Court and Congress, until we are no longer an exceptional nation developing exceptional ideas, but rather a market fundamental, reduced by Wall Street maxims to figures in a ledger.
Dirty politics aren’t new to America, but a clear distinction between national political parties is. Political campaigns remain a stinking business diminishing American “Exceptionalism” with $uper Pac$ attack ads by nameless wealthy writing supremacy checks for supremely unlimited amounts, purchasing our freedoms to de-construct what “We hold these truths…” constructed.
No, George Will, our system was NOT “designed for stalemate,” nor checkmate nor to have a ‘number one goal: the defeat of President Obama.’ It was designed not for stopping, but for growing potential, developing ideas, and progressing individual pursuits of life, liberty and happiness. Our Constitution designed an Executive, Legislative and Judiciary to compromise for the greater good of all, without being compromised by conservative corporate greed that corrodes its structure.
According to Pew Charitable Trusts, Bank of America, CITI, and Wells Fargo lead gang of banker bandits: Chase, Capital One, PNC, SunTrust etc in secret agendas hidden in pages of fine print disclosures, to gouge the public with unwarranted fees without customer benefit, claiming ‘The government made me do it,’ but failing to mention the money trail that dumps in Congress, leads back to Wall Street through K Street anti-American Ponzi schemes.
When wealth determines human worth, and the powerful abuse those unable to defend or speak up for themselves – that’s BULLYING – the supreme common. The many faces of bullying divide Americans between consumed consumers and exceptionally heeled heels.
There is Greatness in America, but distinguishing it from the chaff is our job: UVa Visitors, Wisconsin recall, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Issa Witch hunt, school bus Karen Klein, which?!?
“To the victor go the spoils.” Americans Left & Right voting out of Wisconsin common sense, uncommon money or Common Cause confirming Party lines on equal pay for women: Democrats pro; Republicans billion dollar sponsored con.
Scott Walker, Rick Scott, Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney’s hotwired links to “Mission Accomplished” lie, personify choice between a Conservative Corporate run country vs. progression forward to an ‘all are created equal’ America!
We need a “Deep Throat” National focus: “follow the money,” and expose it, allowing Biblical “David” to embolden our Left to recapture the hill, center Congress and balance America.
To make a point, you do park tents. To make a nation, you Occupy voter registrations and help get picture IDs to those in need. Want to sing and march, encircle Supreme Court like Joshua at Jericho, and Occupy until your voices crack the walls of injustice.
For ‘Big Picture” long term results, Occupy Left in counter balance to Tea Party, giving progressive backbone to the only politicians who give a damn about your mothers, student loans, health & Medicare, wives, education, police, firefighters, sisters, teachers and economic equality.
Pledge to amend the Constitution to outlaw Goliath money outlaws whether government purchasing billionaires, Wall Street Bankstas, Koch heads, Rove rogues, or Hoffa stained unions. Occupy to purge the foul stench of bought elections.
TV ads are marketing pitches from sons of bitches purposefully misleading, which is alright for soap or California cigarette tax, but when it’s our “one nation under God,” we need resist being GW’s “you can fool all of the people some of the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on.”
“Follow the Money” behind the ads to expose those who don’t want government food inspectors or banking regulations for super bonus prevention; all while the chicken-sh*ts use media to convince us to consume the chemical waste products they produce in secret animal jails.
Thus practicing “there’s a sucker born every minute,” we’re pitched into ‘sold” cycle, conditioned by their blitzkrieg into believing “off message” is a bad thing. “Off Message” means ‘off script,’ candid comments, spontaneous unabashed momentary truth – a slip into sheer unrehearsed honesty that only liars fear.
Investigate endless cash flowing into our political stream, selling Americans a bill of ‘bads’ with mind numbing Koch heads, Trumped up by a tearful White House Rove exit strategy before Patrick Fitzgerald finds out he’s off to see the Rumpelstiltskin wizards.
Not all slime is in beef, nor all BS found in chicken. Those who gain most from peddling waste products for food are killing us with what we don’t know about Lobbying excrement fertilizing 1% financial preservation.
We can Romney ourselves into a Walker conservative state Right in goose step with European austerity plan that is bankrupting Greece, Spain and Italy or we can stop letting TV political ads with melodious voiceover and feel good patriotic sound tracks herd us into selling our souls and country down the Supreme Corporate River Styx.
If we do not pledge to each other to overturn the Supreme Court’s decision to sellout our elections, government and country through Corporate Personhood hiding beneath phony patriotism mega bucks umbrella, “Citizens’ United,” our chickens will come home to roost oozing the s**t PACs have been shoveling, and we will have stepped in it in abandonment to the outhouse, as recycle outlets for Pharmaceutical cow pies.
So this election year let’s relieve ourselves of media sponsored conflict to perpetuate chaotic National division, help Europe help America and Occupy new bold aggression for Justice for All,” and transparent elections.
