News After Dark

Saturday, May 21st 2016

I felt that this article was so important that I am posting it as I am writing it.

So, last Friday we were listening to Democracy Now on KUNM. Their guest that day was Noam Chomsky. He was talking about his new book "Who Controls America?" I have not yet read his book, but the title got me to do some deep thinking. It's easy to be fooled by appearances. It's not the richest 1% or the elite who control America. It is we the people who control America– The 99%. The 1% know this and, believe me, they are terrified. That is why they work so very hard to keep the nation divided.Yet they are fearless when it comes to making people suffer. We will bring Wall Street to their knees sooner rather than later.

Stop the roadblock of race. There's black polls and white polls. How are the whites going to vote? How are blacks going to vote? Even the news media unintentionally sustains this division. The group of Americans who call themselves white are holding themselves back along with the rest of America. They are so paranoid about losing power that they cower to the richest 1%. Especially the Blue Collar Whites.

The Blue Collar White group is angry. If you want to know who is to blame for your situation then look no further than the mirror. You vote for people who screw you and then you bend over to make their job easier. Donald Trump is not the answer! He is the problem. The ultimate con artist. He is love with himself. When the nation sees this he will fall like a house of cards.

Why can't the Blue Collar White group connect the dots? The Blue Collar White group is being fooled by the GOP. Obama would have helped them so much more than the people that they voted for like Mitch McConnell, Chris Cristie, Paul Ryan and the rest of the GOP in D.C. who made you suffer to make Obama look bad. My question to the Blue Collar Whites is this; why can't you connect the dots? There's only two. The GOP helps the richest 1% and screws the 99%. Why does the blue collar white group help the other team?

I was born and raised in America. My roots stem from the same work ethic as the blue collar white. I drank Bud beer and drove a Ford truck which I worked on myself in my driveway. I went to college and educated myself and learned not to deny the facts but to follow them. But because I'm Hispanic, the BCW group differentiates me. We are on the same team in my eyes. Personally, I don't give a fuck about race. Blue Collar Whites are so paranoid about losing their edge that they vote for people who lie about helping the white race when in fact they are only helping the richest 1%. This is what Ronald Reagan really meant by trickle down economics. Paul Ryan, Mitch, "The Bitch" McConnell, Chris Cristie and the rest of the Grand Obstructionist Party are funded by the richest 1%. Duh.

Even blue collar whites are aware of the growing gap between tne richest 1% and the the 99%. The problem here is that blue collar whites help to maintain this gap by helping the other team when they vote in people like Chris Cristie, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and the rest of the GOP. These blue collar whites think that the afore mentioned people are working in theirt best interest. Nothing, and I mean nothing, could be further from the truth. All these blue collar whites have to do is to stop turning a blind eye and look at the GOP D.C. voting record. They cut funding for all the institutions that would empower the 99% in order to maintain power for the richest 1%. Their goal is to keep the 99% weak. It's diabolical yet so transparent.

So, how do the richest 1% keep their their control and maintain their power? Easy– the nation is divided. The nation is already divided so the richest 1% just have to keep it that way. The richest 1% use a tactic that is as old as mankind. Divide and conquer. Every election season the richest 1% and their employees, the GOP in D.C., magnify this division even more. They pit blacks against whites, and magnify things like Al-Qaeda. But the richest 1% heave an even more powerful tool than to divide and conquer. They are only 1% yet they have more power. How is that possible? In what universe is 1% greater than 99%? The richest 1% are organized and mobilized. That's how they maintain their power and control over the 99% who are unorganized, divided and fight like animals in a cage. Like a lion tamer controls the lions.

Now, imagine what will happen when we the people start to use a page from the richest 1%'s playbook. We the people become organized and mobilized. We the people divide and conquer. This will lead to a better and stronger America. There is no I  in We  the People.

The solution is for the nation to coalesce. Come together and form one mass or whole. Stop thinking in terms of race– Black and white. We all make up the 99% and we're being controlled and getting screwed by the richest 1%. Paul Ryan, Mitch "The Bitch" McConnell,Chris Cristie and Ted Cruz are not government employees, they are employees of Exxon, Wall Street, and the richest 1%.

And lastly, but not leastly, we are calling on the media to get the word out ASAP! Especially to the Blue Collar Whites who keep helping the other team. In what universe is 1% greater than 99%? This imbalace cannot be allowed to stand. It is unnatural. Nature seeks balance! We are calling on Amy Goodman, MSNBC, Rachel Maddow, Noam Chomsky and other brainiacs to help stop the maniacs. The lunatics are running the asylum! I implore you to help us get this discussion going.

We are also calling on the youth of America to wise up, rise up, mobilize, organize, vote and obstruct, obstruct, obstruct! Trump MUST be stopped! As Bill Maher says, "It's time for new rules".

The Reagan Revolution

Republicans stick together like stink on shit.

The GOP in D.C. have a nice little scam going on. Paul Ryan, Chris Cristie, Marco Rubio, Mitch McConnell and the rest of these con artists kiss the rings of the richest 1% and the money trickles down into their bank accounts. Ever since The Reagan Revolution, Republicans devised their crude and transparent strategy to help retain their wealth and the wealth of the richest 1%. The Republican Party hopped on the band wagon and embraced this pyramid scheme. And that's what it is – a pyramid scheme.

The brainiacs must mobilize and stop these maniacs. They are coocoo for Cocoa Puffs. When you deny man-made climate change because it might hurt your bank account then that makes you Looney tunes. Their god is the almighty dollar and our children are their sacrificial lambs.

In what universe?

In what universe is 1% greater than 99%?.

What's wrong with this picture?

Watch these videos. There is something wrong with this picture. Can you guess what it is?

Boeing, Northrup Grumman and Lockhead Martin all profit greatly from war. They are a business like any other business. They will perpetuate the myth that might makes right and military solutions work. These companies are the NRA on steroids
