My thoughts on American Hypocrisy!!!

Standard

Are the Muslims really the enemy?!!!

Ever since 9-11, every politician-elect supports the War on Islam, so they can be politically-correct.
As long as I can remember, the U.S. supported thugs like the Contras, to propel agendas of dissent.

Now, people like bin-Ladin are black-listed, although supported against the Soviets back in the day.
Every single lobbyist, with money to spare, funds the goons in Congress, who take our liberties away.

And yet, we are the enemy…now check that out!!!

They’ve passed the Patriot Act, which allows U.S. authorities to raid & arrest people, without contest.
It’s truly a shame that Islam has been used as the fallout-boy, to create an  illusion, to avoid civil unrest.

They’ve passed the NDAA; it gives the U.S. the green light to prosecute citizens, without due-process.
The leader of Syria is blasted for Human-Rights crimes, while his oil-rich neighbors are free to oppress.

And yet, we are the enemy…now check that out!!!

Alan Greenspan, Hank Paulson, the Banks and Wall Street, sold millions of Americans up the river.
Their fellow citizens didn’t matter at all to them, only concerned with the elite class being the winner.

The financial crisis was stirred up by corporations, wanting to squeeze every drop out of taxpayers.
And, they were rewarded, for their speculations on the global stock market, with billions of dollars.

And yet, we are the enemy…now check that out!!!

The enemy, whom we’re all taught to fear, is right within our borders.
They’re disguising themselves as good-doers, in our own backyards.

The true enemy’s in Washington, where powerful lobbyists pop bottles.
And, they’re on Capitol Hill, where rich White lawmakers pop models.

We have allowed ourselves to develop pathological love-affairs, with wasteful forms of amusement.
Our heart-strings pulled by entertainment; T.V. and the Internet are the arrows, the media is Cupid.

The “War on Terror” is a $1 problem, yet has a $Billion solution that’s attached to it.
Unfortunately,  the American people are delusional & just completely stuck on stupid.

My thoughts on the economic meltdown in Europe:

Standard

It’s very obvious that historically, as well as contemporarily, that if/whenever you have a globalized economy based upon the pathological acquisition of wealth, at the expense of having others perpetually financially destitute as well as having a populace of work-horses, like the middle/working-class, for example, who are used to be the engine of that economy, then that economy is bound to fail & collapse.

Now, referring to the financial meltdown in Europe, with the recent failing of the Euro, one needs to critically look back, historically as well as contemporarily, how does a financial-system fail. One of the easiest ways for a financial-system to fail is the unnecessary imposition of an interest-based economy, which wraps people up in unnecessary perpetual debt, this affects both individuals & nations alike-The accumulation of debt will rot any economy, just as dampness will rot wood.

Not that the American economy is doing any better, I mean honestly, the same reason that the Euro has been broken is the same reason that the U.S. economy has been plagued by the threat of collapse. And, the interest-based economy is in fact the main culprit. This is simply because you can only bleed people dry but for so long. Like for example, the whole Real-Estate collapse in the U.S. basically started as a direct result of American homeowners not being able to keep up with mortgage-payments that had tons of interests-rates attached to them.

Millions of Americans were thus forced to foreclose on their own homes because they just couldn’t afford the unjust interest rates imposed upon them from the Banking industry. But, of course, the financial institutions are the ones who received the Federal-bailouts, instead of the more deserving U.S. citizens, who were being jerked around & were economically left for dead. Now, let’s head back to Europe.

There are three main reason why in fact the Euro has not lived up to the projected expectations of the European Union:

1. Lack of economic growth, as a result of a weak job-market, as a result of lack of domestic industrial production.

2. The lack of governmental-confidence in European democracy, as a result of notorious political corruption from conservatives & leftists.

3. The European Union being dominated by a handful of powerful European nations, while marginalizing European countries with weaker governments and/or weaker economies, prior to even joining the European Union.

All of these factors, combined, have made the possibility of a utopian European political & economical network unravel right in front of their eyes. The irony is that the warning-signs were crystal-clear, yet no one wanted to take heed to the painfully obvious damage that was being caused by the lack of regulation of the crumbling value of the Euro. Can Democracy & the Euro survive? Well, we’ll just have to see whether the European Union is gonna actually work to strengthen their united governmental ideology & currency, or just pretend like nothing is wrong, and just put their heads in the sand.

Season’s Warnings!!!

Standard

Author’s note:

This is my advice for all of you out there who’ve been waiting all-year for this holiday shopping season to befall us. Well, it’s here; but, I’m here just to give you some insight, to make sure that you don’t become just another victim of the industries which feed off of our pockets.

Brand-Names!!!For some strange reason, we all love to don designer labels, to bear another man’s name.
It could be Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, or Louis Vuitton, wanting to be owned is the same.

We are all victims of our own self-enslavement, to these big-time corporations.
We give them our money without question; we represent consumer generations.

It’s sad how we need allow the names on our clothes to determine our self-worth.

We are only valued as a sale, a fashion serf, tied to the the label of a greedy designer baron.
We place so much importance on brands that do nothing for our communities or children.

These brands project lifestyles that most of their consumers would never be able to afford.
But, the image of wealth & status in our society is appealing; we just want to be on board.

It’s sad how we need allow the names on our clothes to determine our self-worth.

These fashion pariahs only want our money; they need us to stay at a lowly societal rank.
We waste our money on brand names, while these people laugh all the way to the bank.

Their only concern is what they can get out of our pockets; it’s the reality we must know.
Buying these name brands are one of the reasons our communities don’t prosper & grow.

It’s sad how we need allow the names on our clothes to determine our self-worth.

It is high time to take ownership of one’s own self back!!!
Don’t allow these brand names to own you, that’s wack!!!

We must love & dignify ourselves enough not to enslave ourselves to brand names!!!
If this cycle doesn’t end soon, we’ll continue to be senseless, fashion-crazed lames!!!
