6 September 2015. A Point to Ponder from Robert Reich…

How many more children must die and be thrown on the altar of the Almighty Dollar by ravening monsters such as John McCain, Chilly Hilly, Ted Cruz, and Butcher Biden? They don’t give a ruby-red goddamn. They profit… who cares how the money got in their pockets… pecunia non olet*! In fact one can assume that any country-club member or supporter of the Republican Party shares their attitude. It profits them, therefore, it’s good. Sad to say, most Establishment Dems have sold out and are indistinguishable from Republicants. Chilly Hilly is as bloodthirsty as Ted Cruz is… Butcher Biden is as rapacious as Willy Romney is.

  • Pecunia non olet: “Money doesn’t stink”… the meaning is obvious… money is good, no matter how one gets it

Our country is in moral quagmire of its own devising. Frankly, FDR didn’t clobber the rich badly enough… he left them enough power to regroup and counterattack. That’s what the Republicans have done since 1946… trying to destroy the Social Justice that FDR (imperfectly) brought to the high table. They want it all for themselves… that’s the subtext in everything disseminated by Dreher, Limbaugh, Palin, et al… I PROFIT! IT IS GOOD!

Many of these people claim to be Christian, moral, and religious… they lie…

Look at the image above… every victim of the USA in its wars of aggression since 1947 was the same… they all had faces, they all had names, they all had family and friends who loved them. However, they had to die… you see, the Republican filth just have to have their wetback nannies and gardeners, they had to have their bloated defence contract profits, they had to pay their country-club dues… the Dem quislings are no different. Look at her face… that is the price for “American Prosperity”… for “Economic Freedom”. I say it’s too high a price to pay… I’m NOT alone in thinking that way (Patriarch Kirill and Pope Francisco agree with me, not with the amoral American Establishment)…

May God spare us the full judgement for the evil wrought by the Amoral American Overclass… please…

2 September 2013. Video. Celebrate Labour on Labour Day

00 Free Market Trickle Down Economics at Work. 15.05.13

******

______________________________

In this Labour Day message, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labour and subject of the upcoming documentary Inequality for All, breaks down what it’ll take for workers to get a fair share in this economy… including big profitable corporations like McDonald’s and Walmart ponying up and finally paying fair wages. McDonald’s and Walmart… pay your employees decent wages! Your typical employee is now earning 8.25 to 8.80 USD (275-293 Roubles. 8.60-9.20 CAD. 9-9.60 AUD. 6.25-6.75 Euros. 5.25-5.60 UK Pounds) an hour. Most are adults, responsible for bringing in half their family’s income. You can easily afford to pay them 15 USD (500 Roubles. 15.60 CAD. 16.40 AUD. 11.40 Euros. 9.60 UK Pounds) an hour without causing layoffs or requiring price hikes. Your shareholders and executives are doing spectacularly well.

Editor’s Note:

We have to end the charade of voodoo economics brought by Margaret “Milk Snatcher” Thatcher and Slobberin’ Ronnie (and reinforced by Shrub Bush). We produce the wealth… we deserve our fair share. If that’s “Red”… so be it, I’m proud to be a Red! Those who didn’t work to produce the wealth, shouldn’t take the lion’s share… and I’m not alone in thinking that way.
