Point of Order Mr. Speaker, please. “It is what it is” and “I am what I am” are overdone clichés and vials of transparencies in overkill or just plain Republicanize overtones of “Kill the Bill.”
So, what’s right about another Chicago Daley White House influence — mostly his being not so “Right,” and no backward a-Paul-ing he, but leaning forward to what can be. Also, he’s slept with the enemy you see, and knows where best to snare the soft slithering underbelly of Bankstas in dark lair, coiled for next strike to rattle baby’s dwindling parental financial stability, in favor of some billion dollar CEO’s wintering spree. I’m with Don Corleone. When you can’t keep your enemies closer than your Left friends, then invite in someone who has Clintonized them.
Passion and sincerity are more often distant than kissing cousins, proving inconsistent band for good, bad or ugly self-divided land. Steeple people used by top few, to fight for division and fifty’s redo, produce smiles from on high as “Right” files by, filling up on re-written pew truths of Sunday’s guy.
Targeted passion misused in vain glory spells, causing unnecessary young blood spills, exchanging life’s dreams for death knells. Honest sweat these days, thanks to those who ugly their ways with secrets and lies born out of greed, those “Left Behind” do labor victimized by those above repeating the deed. Tears fall from those who from wars lose, what “Love it or Leave it” off shore ghouls choose. Sacrificing blood, sweat and tears that our passion dyes, we may neither prove true or wise enough to win the peaceful prize.
Leaders speak sometimes pretending real character, but passionate words of sincerity are only the measure of the man, when the man measures up to the people for whom he stands. One can speak Lincoln’s Gettysburg address, or pen Moon walk proclamations or Independence profess, but if on scale of humane humanity you’re Stalin, Idi Amin or bin Laden insanity, your human measure ranks far below the lowest of the less.
While a speaker may prove a “smokin’” family man, leading a Freshman House on misdirected ban, no matter level of emotional share, doubting need for reform in universal health care, is falling for staged insurance distraction ploy, like teasing children with a little fake toy.
Many different causes both good and bad, have been marketing shrouded in shame, for corporate puppeteers it’s just a numbers game. Like final solution for six million was by few, a sincere passion soullessly delivered past due.
Best to remember Capra and Stewart “Smith,” championed the little guys fight against big business money machine’s purchase of Cantor like Senator Rains. While tea team under Speaker B reign, are the little guys already K street applicants corrupted, with twisted views to preserve protect and defend their Constitution misinterpreted, through Republican census redistribution for progressive restitution.
Are you angry enough yet to face the truth? This economic mess we’re in was caused by a lot more than the small minds of a few corporations or greedy bankers or even the last oily administration. Without a whole lot of us looking the other way, we and our new overwhelmed President would have more palatable options, than compromising the poor to save the rich in order to protect the middle from becoming the poor.
All of us, regardless of party, color, age, sexual & political persuasion, income or calorie intake, were first victim and then collaborator. Victim, after Franklin Roosevelt died leaving his “New Deal” for us, unprotected from architects of The “Right” Deal. The New Deal was the Great Equalizer born out of the Great Depression. The “Right” Deal is the fearful overreaction of greedy people, needing to insure their health and welfare power control over the wealth of America, by renting our elected officials. Thus, Government of, by and for the people has been lobbied into a long term lease signed into law by the descendants of Victorian Robber Barons.
Now, I’m not a Democrat, but nor have I fallen for the smoke and mirrors shell game of those who claim, in the name of Jesus, only corporations create jobs through some kind of mystical trick that employs a trickledown fantasy land formula. Caution, believing in such voo-doo can lead to late night viewing of “Father knows Best” re-runs.
Jobs are created by people just like you and me, who need help to produce or sell what they make. Even an inefficient chaotic Government creates jobs, as does Ma & Pa’s corner grocery store, or a franchise owner, or a small business or even individuals with international holdings, like Warren Buffett and Bill & Melinda Gates.
Almost anyone who makes something and is willing to pay someone else to help them can create jobs. It’s not all that difficult, unless you lack faith in your product, your business and marketing plans, your customer base or unless you choose to keep potential customers and employees in a state of anxiety. You know, like OPEC did to us by shutting off the oil in the 70’s, creating long lines at gasoline stations.
Scarcity breeds desperation and desperation leads to desperate measures, like stomping on the head of someone who disagrees with you or preventing those of a different faith from opening a community center, or hording money instead of making loans that would stimulate an economy or believing political PACs pointing skyward to black and white TV pie, while picking your pocket. Keeping the masses well fed under educated & misinformed, fighting among themselves, maintains a successful feudal system.
I’m an Independent Liberal, who believes God still believes in us and expects us to “do unto others as we would have them do unto us.” What kind of America does a top two percent Conservative believe in?
