RE: PARTICIPATION AND OBSERVATION
© - Tom Hyland - 8/10/11
Reg & Sha'tara ...
Moo-ing cattle, Neigh-ing horses and Baa-ing sheep ...
complacently grazing in the grass, filling their bellies ...
that's all that COUNTS!
Unless, and until there is some loud noise that SCARES them ...
panic ensues, and they race headlong right off the face of the cliff!
STAMPEDE ! that's what humans and their 'civilizations' DO!
"WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?" "Jump on the Bandwagon!"
"Full speed ahead - Damn the torpedoes!"
"Gold is UP to about $1,800.00 per ounce - SELL!"
'Gimme - Gimme - Gimme!"
"Blood, Sweat, and Tears!" ...
"Nothing worthwhile comes FREE!"
Even ants, termites, and bees have hierarchal societies ...
the drones or workers, the soldiers, the nurses, the royals ...
HUMAN-KIND'S simple fallacy is -
that when there are NO workers -
NO ONE EATS!
America was once a society that PRODUCED products - those products had life-spans, they were ASSETS ... They had VALUE! they could be sold, re-sold, appreciated, depreciated, but ultimately some WORTH existed!
Other countries, like Germany and Japan, (which we DEFEATED) copied what we used to MAKE - then made them both cheaper, and better ...
NOW, CHINESE ‘KNOCK-OFFS’ REIGN SUPREME!
AND ... WE ... THE DUMMIES ... RUSH TO BUY THEM!
The Garment industry was wiped out by corporations sending the work abroad - Ditto on Autos, Steel, and almost every manufacturing function which was UNIONIZED! 'Sweat Shops' and child labor ABROAD ABOUNDED!
LABOR VS, MANAGEMENT! the pendulum swung TOO FAR!
Without Labor, there would be NO unions - NO contract negotiation,
NO health benefits, NO retirement costs ... NUTTIN' HONEY!
Companies got WISE!
PROFIT MARGINS WENT THROUGH THE ROOF!
Now, sadly, we are a Nation of SERVICE industries -
"I'll SCRATCH your back, then you SCRATCH mine" -
and the government can TAX BOTH OUR SERVICES,
while there results NO long-term lasting product!
We have been 'Brain-Washed' into Oblivion!
WHO OBSERVES AND PARTICIPATES THE BEST?
CORPORATIONS - CEOS -COMPANIES - GREEDY LEADERS -
CORRUPT POLITICIANS ... 'THEY' HAVE ALL THE 'MARBLES'
'THEY' MAKE THE RULES - 'THEY' UMPIRE THE GAME -
ALWAYS HAVE! ALWAYS WILL! unless ...
'We the Sheeple' WAKE UP!
DOWN with Corporations!
CHANGE the Definition!
Human Life Spans END ... they are NOT Limitless!
Corporations should be LIMITED ALSO!
Treated and TAXED exactly like Individuals!
CAPITAL GAINS SHOULD BE TAXED AT 28 PERCENT -
JUST LIKE POOR ‘SUCKERS’ WHO EARN $75,000 OR MORE!
Get TOO Big? Conglomerations!
BREAK THEM UP - BY LAW!
REMEMBER THE TAFT-HARTLEY ACT?
History? Mankind does NOT learn from it!
Remember the Medieval Times?
The 'Divine Right' of Kings?
Corporations now Claim and Hold 'DIVINE RIGHT!'
Corporations are Worse than Crime!
'THEY' ARE CRIME ITSELF!
Operating Legally because 'THEY' OWN
the so-called Representatives - the 'Law-Makers' -
the Judiciary - the Executive Branch ...
As I conclude this venom-filled dissertation,
I am currently watching TV ...
remember the old film - GEORGE ORWELL'S - '1984'?
'BIG BROTHER' at his very Finest!
Has APATHY caused DEMENTIA to 'Eat Up'
We The Sheeple' like CANCER?
I WONDER! Tom.
