But at the rate we are going we are not even going to get the fucking crumbs.
That phrase supposedly uttered by Marie Antoinette when she asked why the peasants were revolting, she supposedly said it. It is still being argued as to the veracity of such asinine remark but it exemplified the lack of compassion and the total disconnects the royals had with the French people.
Similarly in America, the super wealthy and the corporations have bamboozled a segment of our citizens who were gullible to begin with and ignorant to no end…that the only way to achieve prosperity in America is to do away with the Federal Government and all the social safety nets in existence.
I still don’t understand it however, how could people who don’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of, would defend so vigorously those very special interests that would just as well see them starve or die without medical care, the wealthy and the corporations don’t even want the general public to be educated…as a matter of fact they would much rather they be religious fanatics so that they could be easily governed.
The Republicans and those Tea Baggers…who by the way are heading for a very nasty confrontation, have gone so far to the right in a very destructive radical way that one has to think there is a dose of insanity in it all;…how could these leaders of the GOP who are usually the better informed ones not see that their party’s agenda will ruin America and most importantly…since there is no need for government they would be out of a job themselves when the government becomes so small and only used for the purpose of policing morality in our bedrooms. Oh, sure, they put out their hands to receive all those magnificent contributions and will do as the lobbyists tell them instead of what the people who elected them wanted; but make no mistake about it…if the Republican-Teahadists had their way they would become painfully irrelevant.
The way I see it, the Republican-Teahadists have only one use for government; and it is to legislating morality and policing our bedrooms...that is it.
But a word of warning to those Republican-Teahadists who want to turn our country into a plutocracy: The American people are peace-loving, docile and noble but if you piss them off enough they can be even more indignant than the French were when they overthrew their monarchy,…heads did roll then and heads could roll now when everyone is poor, repressed by a right wing tyranny and they see that privileged 1% eating the most delectable morsels while the American people don’t even have the fucking crumbs.
