Historically, conquerors win hearts and minds through stomachs, schools and jobs; A toxic mix: identify selected enemy to blame, a pound of flag waving, stir in school-to-prison until most black males jailed since slavery, douse with bank imposed crushing student loan debt sauce, a dash of Coal Ash water, pepper for the salt of the earth voter, sugar for those elected to serve the lemonade, and the piece de resistance – misinformation seasoned with public education elimination.
The shakedown Breakdown:
a) Wipe out 40% of Global economy while wearing a suit
b) Shift responsibility of healthcare benefits from employer to employee
c) Decrease salaries; Without increasing minimum wage, limit equal pay between sexes
d) Cut off credit purchasing power
e) Defund food stamps and unemployment benefits
f) Demoralize hope for future with fantasy of trickle down cash flow to after school programs in decaying structures — passing those we’ve failed
Historically, using ever increasing attrition subtleties, corporate war victories follow the last shot fired by the sacrificed less affluent. Wealthy invaders seize the day, by controlling Media information flow; Communications: traceable smart phones, emails, cell conversations; Transportation: neglecting infrastructure.
Historically being Conservative meant knowing when to hold them and when to fold them; resisting new and different change from the comfort zone of status quo.
Now ultra conservatives sell us on great creature comforts’ expectations: thermostats, light switches, Big Screen TV, violent video games, safe & private internet access, microwaved pizza – while something’s changed for the creatures — Seasons are blending into temperature rollercoaster rides confusing all of nature, while man imitates the frog in a simmering water pot.
Where is our Point of No Return or return of rational thought, gone with the wind? It’s Right to deny, change is gonna come, oh yes it is, but that’s living dangerously.
Already we’re breathing and drinking dangerous change, every time we allow Fossil Fuel corporatism to oil our consumerism greed for convenience, while Conservatives fund policies and politicians who exclude people not like the Koch preferred Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, Susana Martinez crowd.
The clock ticks every time we ignore the mowing down of more Rain Forrest, a cow burps, rice paddies float and like Standard Oil in 1933, Shell makes a Putin house call to make a deal for their bottom line, at the expense of ours.
We make history by following the examples of women like Senator Elizabeth Warren, embracing a Texas record breaking 38% wind energy production day and reversing 2008 government & corporatism’s collusion to murder employment, family security, peace of mind and hope for most Americans – increasing the economic gap and inequality of opportunity to be America.
Up, down or sideways; funded we built that or inequitable money changers; Tipping Point for all including wait staff, or more long lines to vote for food: Climate Change is here! Ice is melting in more than a Koch head’s supremely invested cocktail. And if you vote, thinking when the one percent of the one percent find a cousin earth in space, and dump our earth, they’ll take you with them, then you’re Right.
There’s a reason average American Conservatives resist Medicare for All, Medicaid Expansion and ERA ratification – they’ve been misinformed. However, for Wall Street’s wealthiest, it’s because such programs reverse their world order plans for Climate Change financial benefits, and tips the scales in favor of We the People.
We’ll never know all the changes The Citi-Group, Goldman, BofA, Wells Fargo Street made to us, but there is no Resurrection of Justice without our asking, seeking and knocking, to find it.
