I think the sheer amount of money these people hoard and spend on utterly ridiculous bullshit should be plastered everywhere absolutely all the time. It should be hacked and exposed. No one should feel comfortable living like this and we absolutely have to stop worshiping these pricks. We need to start heckling them instead. They bought the media, fed us a diet of wealth worship reality TV bullshit, and now one of those talentless assholes is our goddamn grifter president. Fuck you lefty! Nope, just saying the same shit say, Jesus, Mohammed, or Buddha would if they were around but let’s face it, I didn’t have a whole lot of time to write about it this week. Fortunately this dude did. (from Splinter):
“It is time for polite, respectable, rational people to start saying what has become painfully obvious: It is time to stop respecting the rich, and start stealing from them. In earnest.
How long are people supposed to tolerate being smacked in the face? By the rich? Who already have more than enough? It is not as though the fact that inequality is a crisis is a fact that snuck up on anyone. Economists have seen the trend for decades, and the general public has been well aware of it since at least the financial crisis. Obama called it “the defining challenge of our time.” Thomas Piketty became a rock star by writing a very dry book about it. It’s not an underground thing. It is well known and well understood by the people in control of the institutions with the power to change it. The response to this dire situation by the Republican Party, which a wholly owned subsidiary of the American capital-holding class, has been to pass a tax bill that will horribly exacerbate economic inequality in this country. It is a considered decision to make a bad situation worse. It is a deliberate choice—during a time when the rich already have too much—to take from the poor in order to give the rich (including members of Congress and the President) more. That is not a metaphor. That is the reality. That is what the Republican party is about to accomplish on behalf of the donor class, calling it “middle class tax relief” in the face of mathematical proof to the contrary. Even to my cynical ass, the sheer fuck you-ness of this action towards the majority of the country is breathtaking. This is not just a failure to solve a severe problem; it is the expenditure of vast amounts of political capital to make the severe problem worse so that a tiny handful of people will get wealthier than anyone needs to be.”
