Already-wealthy punks begging money from a Disgruntled Old Coot who is experiencing several physical infirmities and the Veterans Administration has given up on me since they are unable or unwilling to determine the cause of my problems preventing me from obtaining any employment.
No whining, just the facts.
Constant pain that never ends. Greatly limited to what I can do and there is much I used to do that is impossible now.
Scraping by on savings and when those are gone homelessness is likely my only option.
No relatives to assist me. I am on my own.
I know the begging scum sending the e-mail below are not aware of my position.
I also know those want-to-be politician punks have much more money than I do even after I have performed decades of labor that fed folks, moved the goods that were in your stores and many other tasks a modern society requires to be done.
Most of those jobs paid just enough to exist from day to day; and benefits? Benefits?!!!
Even if offered health insurance, when paid for, did not leave enough money to pay for basic life necessities. The few I saw paying for that health insurance were females whose husband’s earnings covered typical living costs but did not have access to insurance or whose cost was so high the basics could not be paid for.
A commonality among the working-poor social class was for females to seek a job with the lowest health insurance cost and try to get that job so the household would have at least some basic health insurance.
Sadly, anything more than a simple malady such as a heart attack, cancer, a failing liver, etc. usually doomed that household to a lifetime of paying medical bills.
Remember, health insurance exists because there is profit to be made by selling it.
How about pensions? 401ks? And other benefits that are the norm for those higher-up the socio-economic pyramid-shaped hierarchy? HAH!!!!!
Well, I did finally obtain a job offering those wonderful wealth builders and affordable health insurance!!!
I was in my early 40s and figured if I saved all I could of my $10 per hour wage (1995 wage rate) and put the maximum into the various save-for-old-age plans I would not be destitute in my old age.
But… as has happened to many millions of other common folks at the bottom levels of the socio-economic hierarchy, 14 months after I obtained that job, it and thousands of others at the firm were sent overseas to maximize the wealth of those at the top of the socio-economic hierarchy.
I did the best I could but was never able to replace that job and its benefits.
I was raised in a working-poor class environment and lived in that class my entire life.
“America needs ditch diggers, too” the propaganda proclaims.
Well, the USA also needs people willing to travel to foreign lands and, as has occurred in my opinion for decades, fight and perhaps die or be horribly injured fighting the elite-class and corporate USA wars.
I volunteered at 17 for the USA military; no choice… a recession was underway and the front door was my destination when I reached 18 the old man stated since an adult makes his own way in life and an adult I would be the day I reached 18.
Two tours to Asian waters. Evacuate Vietnam, help get the SS Mayaguez back from Cambodian bad guys, rattle sabers while extending a middle finger at China to the west and North Korea to the east while showing the USA flag. It was the Cold War era and times were different back then.
Even when visiting “friendly” countries such as the Philippines danger lurked. The New People’s Army and the HUKs were a threat to one’s life and the year prior to my arrival an ambush at a remote section of the Subic Bay Navy base resulted in deaths.
And though despised by many Filipinos the despotic ruler of that time, Marcos, the guy whose wife had thousands of shoes while poverty was the standard for the masses, the USA’s ruling masters and corporations adored Marcos.
Marcos obeyed and cooperated with USA elites.
Elites across the planet assist each other and all of them, I believe, skim wealth from the masses below them.
Yes, I and the others aboard our warship were jack-booted thugs helping to prop up a despot.
Yet, the propaganda we are immersed in for life had me convinced at that time we were protecting America!!!
I learned not long afterwards that was BS!!!
I was defending the wealth flow leading back to the USA.
I am grateful that the USA is not evil as I define that word.
Unlike some countries/cultures the USA does do good deeds but the greed and immorality of many of the USA upper-crust does not deserve the support of We, the People and need to be curtailed in some way.
The only method of controlling those immensely powerful people and entities is via a full-scale military coup. That subject is mentioned in other posts.
A frequent “friend” during our travels across the South and East China Seas and the enormous Pacific Ocean was “your friendly neighborhood Bear,” a long-rage USSR reconnaissance aircraft.
It was surprising how a diving close swoop by the critter can shake a 3,500 ton warship.
Anyway… sure, I did not spend a year in the mud and stench of a Vietnam rice paddy with the NVA or VC trying to ruin my day but…
Where were you, Mitt Romney? How about you Paul Ryan? What did you do overseas to ensure the USA ruling masters, corporate USA, special-interest groups, etc. kept the wealth channels open?
What I am writing is ample subjective opinion and a few facts such as parts of my life that when combined with 50-plus years of life experience, enormous amounts of non-fiction reading and self-research via the printed word that has resulted in this and many other blog posts.
Thanks to the many wonders of the Web, an enormous amount of knowledge was at my, and your, fingertips.
Hooray for the Web!!!
And all those folks involved with making it happen!!!
For your viewing enjoyment I now present you the e-mail from begging vermin wanting me to assist them in getting elected so they can be the newest main figurehead lackeys of the ruling class, corporate USA, etc.

Subject: A crucial moment for America
Following four years of failed leadership, the hopes of our country are growing dim.
Our country needs a leader to revive those hopes, and we need someone of principle.
This week’s convention in Tampa marks a crucial moment for our party and our nation. This is the moment when we pull together and renew our commitment to returning America to prosperity and greatness.
Governor Romney is the man for this moment. He, the Republican team, and I share one commitment: We will restore the promise and greatness of this country.
Donate $3 today to support us and the Republican team — and to advance an agenda of economic growth, job creation, and fiscal discipline.
Your donation will automatically enter you for a chance to join us in Tampa to watch Mitt accept the Republican Party’s nomination.
I responded to the begging bums with the following reply:

You rich scum are begging for money from me???!!!!
In my opinion the vast majority of federal-level politicos are lackey figureheads of those atop the socio-economic hierarchy and immensely wealthy and powerful corporations.
I would be greatly pleased if the USA military commenced a coup to destroy the unrepairable USA federal government and many corrupt bureaucracies, institutions etc. and start anew.
Hopefully that coup would be completed with no physical harm to anybody.
If only patriotic officers could cast aside enough of the life-long indoctrination all USA citizens/residents are immersed in.
Disgruntled Old Coot
I hope those two dainty darling punks who have never confronted the travails so many millions of good, decent USA citizens confront daily while doing the jobs required to allow the USA to function on a day-to-day basis do not pee their panties if they are ever shown my reply by their own lackeys.
I am not endorsing Obama with this post since I believe that whoever the figurehead lackeys within the federal government are makes little to no difference in the USA… from politics to economics to other aspects of life in the USA.
The elite ruling class and the ultra-wealthy and powerful corporations will only allow changes that they approve of.
Whoever the lackey is in political office or in a top-level bureaucracy knows that if they “play the game” their financial rewards await them.
I have written other posts about how the ruler’s lackeys are legally rewarded for obeying.
It is time to end this post and I will end it with a few more pictures that assist in conveying my attitudes, beliefs, thoughts, etc.
I fear that the Romney thing, if elected, will want to fulfill some inner desire to prove what a rough, tough, no BS man (I say boy) he is and send, yet again, commoner class folks overseas to fight, bleed, get injured from slightly to severely and maybe die, just to show the world how “tough” the USA is or… to prop up a tyrant or regime that obeys the USA masters in various ways.
I am far from being an expert about law and economics and the multitude of areas the USA is swarming with.
I have read about what seems to me is an unholy alliance between BIG business and BIG government with recent Supreme Court rulings making the corporate entity evermore powerful with many rights and privileges that individuals possess.
How can a typical USA citizen stand up to or compete with huge corporate entities?
I live in an area well-known for poverty with many folks lacking funds for ample food, dental care and other life necessities.
There are many reasons for this poverty and some of them are due to personal problems caused by the individual; from excess alcohol use and other negatives.
But, the lack of jobs paying a livable wage is a major problem. Toss in the ever-rising costs of basic living and the USA, for many folks, is becoming an economic quagmire.
But, everything is fine in the USA!!!!!
The deserving proper folks have ample wealth and never lack dental or other care thus never suffering daily from unrelenting pain.
While on this subject, I extend HUGE… no,
upon the local dentists, their assistants and others who volunteer and donate their time and skills to assist folks unable to afford the dental care they badly need but do not have the funds to pay for the needed care.
I believe that many of the folks receiving that care are “regular old folks” of the working-poor and unemployed classes.
If I ever meet a dentist or their helpers I will thank them for their efforts with all the gratitude possible.
Piss on you punk politician scum.
Those folks relieving those pain-filled folks of that burden are worth much more recognition that you figurehead vermin.
I do know that the USA will never name an aircraft carrier for one of those despised commoners who have done so much for their fellow humans.
Here is my fairness regarding politicians and candidates begging for bucks and votes.
I despise Obama for being a lackey and who will assuredly reap many millions of dollars for obeying his ruling-class masters.
I admit I despise him a little less than the Romney and his side-kick boy but not much less.
For the record, and to assuage the lackey bureaucrat scum, especially of the jack-booted thug variety who place pay, pension and perks above loyalty to We, the People, I do not want bad things to happen to anybody with a few exceptions.
Criminals who physically harm or kill others for personal gain… if truly guilty with absolutely no doubt… and that does occur in some cases… well… yes, I support the death penalty but there has to be 500% certainty the one executed is guilty.
Otherwise, a lifetime stuck in a hard-core prison with all the scum inside is akin to Heck on Earth.
Anyway… knowing that hunger, but not out-and-out starvation, exists atop the Ozark Plateau various possible Obama utterance pass through my mind:
“Ample food for me and my kin you commoner scum!!! And how do you like my perfect teeth? I will always have the finest medical and dental care… how about you commoner scum?”
Sure, I know the main figurehead lackey will likely never think those words but he must know about the reality of life within the USA.
If Obama had to endure what I (and too many others) have been through the last few years with extremely marginal health care (or none) and no funds to seek solace elsewhere… perhaps he could truly represent what is becoming a too-large percentage of the populace.
Think of me Obama or whoever is the main figurehead lackey at the time when I am forced to live in the back of my pick-up truck.
