Howdy, Folks. I hope that all is well with all the decent people everywhere on this planet. Wear your seat belt when in a vehicle. All the cool kids do it and it can minimize injury or even save your life if a wreck occurs.
Reading the news story linked-to below I wonder if the fear of a mass uprising by the spit-upon common folks of the USA is why that Koch dude is behaving as he is? If some minor and major alterations within the various systems that control and affect in various ways events within the USA are not made I believe the possibility of revolution grows. It would be best for all of us if the changes Koch mentions are made.
Charles Koch slams ‘corporate welfare': Billionaire warns of coming 2-tier society
From the news story:
“We’re headed toward a two-tiered society — a society that’s destroying opportunities for the disadvantaged and creating welfare for the rich,” Koch said. “Misguided policies are creating a permanent underclass, crippling our economy and corrupting the business community,” he said, “present company excepted of course.”
Koch said clearing those obstacles would require getting business leaders to recognize that accepting “corporate welfare” — which he defined as subsidies and special preferences for business — is “suicide long term.”
“Short term, taking the principled path (is) going to cause some companies some problems, as it will Koch industries,” said Koch, who runs his business empire with his brother, David Koch. “But long term it will allow business people to continue to own and run their businesses.”
He singled out “big banks” as bad actors who have accepted handouts, including “massive bailouts” and taking “virtually free money from the Fed.” To maintain the status quo, the banks “Make big political contributions,” he said.
“This destructive cycle goes on and on,” he said.
In between seminars this weekend, the roughly 450 donors here will have a chance to continue vetting the 2016 presidential candidates. The current GOP poll leader, Donald Trump, was not invited to the gathering.
Maybe Trump was not invited due to the support he is receiving from the masses of common folks so damn tired of being spit upon by an elite class and their paid-off lackey politicians and bureaucrats that some of us advocate, as a last resort, a full-scale revolution that the future may label as Revolutionary War Two.
Below is a message board comment placed to assist in my ongoing efforts to spread the word about class warfare and the ongoing scam that the USA has become. Many others are performing the same or similar tasks as part of the vast effort by the 300-million-plus common folks fed up with being used and abused by tyrants and their fiendish lackeys.
In the 1980s I determined that the USA was in the throes of class warfare. As the years sped by the evidence mounted that confirmed my belief. This topic is extremely complex and to convey the proof of my belief would require far too much time and several books’ worth of words. And it is boring. Zzzzzzzzzz.
There IS trouble within the USA and I fear that the Founders’ “Great Experiment” may, in the long-term, be doomed by the greed and corruption at the highest levels of the socioeconomic hierarchy and the unholy alliance between big business and governments at all levels. Even within Springfield I see ample evidence of local elites and government conniving to ensure the masses of common folks are used and abused to keep the few at the top of the pile living in fine fettle.
The anger of the populace is steadily growing as can be determined by browsing the Web. There is also a growing mention of a need for what I label as “Revolutionary War Two.” It is possible that the awareness and fear of a mass uprising against tyranny is what is driving Koch to convince the overlords to alter their ways and stop the class war that increased in intensity around 1973 and has battered the common folks with steadily increasing harm ever since.
We, the People will fight tyranny with weapons if the tyrants force us into using that method. We shall do all we can to avoid physical force. It is the tyrants’ greed and lust for the power they wield over the masses that will prevent them from stopping their evil ways. We urge all freedom fighters to wage war using words. Perhaps our enormous numbers will send a SHOUT so powerful that the tyrants and their lackeys will shake with fear at the anger enveloping them and thus make the changes needed to make the USA more of an equitable society. A great beginning would be jobs for all. We are a society that needs to make all people valuable. And one way to do that is a livable wage and jobs; even if they need to be created. No more welfare except the few unable to perform any task that assists society. No more excuses for for-profit crimes due to jobs for all. With no excuse for crimes to garner wealth then society can begin weeding out the societal scum that make life miserable for too many common folks. Time for the USA to get tough on those screwing things up for decent folks.
Oath Keepers also encourages the military and law enforcement to not assist the tyrants with enslaving the common folks. Visit the Oath Keepers site to view what the modern patriot freedom fighters are doing to peacefully affect the systems of command and control used by the tyrants to lord over We, the People:
Grandpa’s brother is buried there… dying during the re-taking of Europe after truly evil tyrants seized Europe during WW 2. Our tyrants are not nearly as evil as the Nazis were but tyrants they are and their time of spitting upon you and me and all we know must end. Those folks giving their lives to fight tyrants during WW 2 can not be dishonored by us today allowing our own tyrants to continue brutalizing We, the People. Join the current war of words and informing the masses what our tyrants are doing to individuals and the country as a whole. Join the righteous cause of freedom and fairness.
Join the cause. The immensely wealthy thus powerful forces within the USA have altered the Founders’ creation into a system that uses and abuses the masses of common citizens, the vast majority of We, the People. We are flooded with propaganda from birth unto death that indoctrinates us into being well-behaved serfs of those lording over us. Well… most of us, anyway. Partially due to the ongoing class war and its many negative effects upon society there is ample crime and thuggish behavior of too many folks. The quality of life for too many common folks has decreased but the ruling overlords have ample wealth to distance themselves what those tyrants and their lackeys allow to happen to us common folks unable to use massive wealth and influence to protect ourselves and families from the rampaging barbarians among us.
A better, more peaceful society is possible but the ongoing class war and tyrannical leadership of the USA makes that goal nigh-on impossible. A major change is needed within the USA and I and many others call out for a new cohort of folks to be the new set of Founders of the caliber of the original Founders to lead We, the People and wrest control from tyrants and re-create the USA. The existing Constitution is a great place to start but changes are needed in the systems surrounding the Constitution but not of and by that document. Systems have been created by greedy power-hungry folks whose creations allowed tyrannical control of the USA and monolithic corporations whose wealth and power exceeds that of some of the planet’s countries. Economics is extremely complex and purposefully done so to allow the few to screw over the many. Far better minds than mine are needed to alter the economic scams shoving us common folks into impoverishment.
Join our cause. Educate yourself about life reality within the USA if you have not already done so. If you are aware that tyranny exists and has corrupted the Founder’s creation join us in the current “war of words” that will hopefully curtail the tyrants though they will still exist. At the least We, the People, must end this harmful-to-us and the USA as a whole class war. If our peaceful efforts fail, however, and tyranny continues unabated then our ongoing preparations to commence rebellion… well… that is not my forte. This is my contribution to the cause as of now:
If the need for revolt ever arrives, and I hope it does not, but… if the cohort of Founders worthy of following appears and declares the requirement to start Revolutionary War Two I will join the assuredly vast numbers of modern-day tyranny fighters and do whatever needs doing to wrest power and control away from those tyrannical fiends and the lackeys who spit upon We, the People.
Join us. Fight with words to avoid that battle to end tyranny that may lay in our future. Let your voice join the many shouting at tyrants to change their ways.
